Hamann crocked

Out for 9 to 12 weeks with a tendon injury.

Given that it was reported Hughes wanted him out in January this isn't really a big deal in the medium or long term. I'm sure we're buying one or two midfielders this month anyway so we'll have cover.

For the Wigan game it's a bit of a disaster. We now have three available central midfielders: Kompany, Gelson and Elano. The midfield that started against Nottingham Forest. And I wouldn't be surprised if Elano gets kicked out of the game by City legend Michael Brown and the equally unpleasant Lee Cattermole.

Let's just hope we have Parker/Veloso/Xavi/Bosvelt/whoever tied up by Newcastle on Wednesday 28th.

Hmmm getting a bit twitchy now about the transfer window. I'm not so sure anybody is willing to sell players. Get well soon, Martin Petrov

and the bovelt remark made me laugh. He wasnt a bad player either. we are desperate now. Wigan are generally a big side, gleson wouldnt cope, with his headless chicken routine
