Moments after signing Carlos Tevez for 25m, Man City make a 20m pound bid for Emanuel Adebayor.
This begs the question: are City trying to create the squad to run god's perfect formation--the oft referenced but rarely used 1-1-8? City's possible formation:
Tevez Adebayor Bellamy
Look familiar? That's because it bears a FRIGHTENING resemblance to Barcelona 07-08:
Dos Santos Ronaldinho
Messi Gudjohnsen Henry
City's is a slight variation--they'll be playing 4 TRUE strikers, plus Robinho while Barca supplemented 2 true strikers (one playing out of position on the left wing) with 2 creative players (one who used to be the best in the world, one who was on his way to becoming the best in the world) and Eidur Gudjohnsen.
What I'm trying to say is that Sheik Mansour is actually Frank Rijkaard.
