    Bit of news. City signed Alexander Robertson from United last week. He was their best u14s last year and now he's at our u15s.

    He's a no.8 who can do everything apparently. Box-to-box, tough tackler an a goalscorer....and quite a good one. He made his official debut last night in the floodlit cup and scored four in a 7-0 win over Rotherham. Not bad hey?

    He's Australian too interestingly. United basically messed up his contract situation which meant City could sign him as a grass roots player despite the academy ban.

    Decent.

    I don't care if he's pants, just feel smug we took him off the raggies.

    Furthermore, if there is a fair and just God, he'll be the next Ryan Giggs!

    Apparently (and this is loosely sourced) he's a United fan, which makes it all a little sweeter :)
