Liam Bridcutt apparently secured for £1m from Leeds. To be announced officially tomorrow (today).

Amazing squad we're building now (relatively speaking compared to recent seasons) and still have around £8-9m of the proceeds from Assombalonga's sale left too.

8 goals in 5 days. What a time to be alive

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Far, far superior team won that match by all accounts - can't have any complaints about it.

Fans running on the pitch and grabbing Burnley players by the neck, flares, buses being pelted with bricks etc is what I'm hearing about the atmosphere though; utterly reprehensible. Disgusting stuff.

I've been waiting 19 years for a game against Wolves, will be making that trip, that's for sure. I fully expect Rovers to get battered by all the morally ambiguous Wolves signings ;)

We made 11 changes to the team that started against Cardiff, we will probably play the same 11, also...

Im not worried about the team they put out, I used to watch Wolves all the time when I was a student, this will be the first time I have had the chance to watch Rovers at the Molineux. I have never sat in the away end, so really looking forward to doing that. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Wolves (Plus they normally do a good job of beating City, bar last season :| )

Robert Snodgrass signs for Villa on loan - very good signing that, I'd say. Starting to feel a bit more confident for the season now.

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

Well that will teach me not to have hope where Villa are concerned.

And what a poor challenge by Terry to give that free kick - amateurish, to be frank.

Twice that cheating banana split Terry has handballed in the penalty area. :x

Despite Terry being a dirty cheating banana split, a draw seemed fair enough there. Both teams play seemed equal.

Yep, I'd agree with that; Terry was lucky twice not to give a penalty away, but overall it was a fairly even match - and quite an enjoyable one too!

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see City in the top six battle, to be honest. Looks well-balanced team.
