Barry settles in

From the official site:

“Every game is going to help, I'm getting used to the other players and they are getting used to me. Tuesday was the first step towards that, the more I play alongside them and them with me, then we'll all get better together,” he asserted.

"I was delighted to get my first run-out, fitness is still the key thing at this early stage but I felt good wearing Manchester City colours!

"It was good that we came away with a win, the lads worked extremely hard and we deserved it.

"Coming abroad to different atmospheres and weather conditions makes it tougher, but that can only be a good thing. It's harder work on the fitness side of things but we all put in a good shift and we will feel the benefits when we go back to England."

he played OK as well. But what worries me is the rumours about boj and petrov being targeted by lazio / spurs respectively. would hate to see either leave.

I love the two Bulgarians but I just don't see how they have a future at MCFC. Boji is now fifth choice striker, while Petrov is pretty far back too: not even Robinho is guaranteed a start!

I think we'll keep Petrov as the only genuine left midfielder, though he's in for a season as back-up to Robinho.

As for Bojinov, I've a feeling Hughes would want to keep him as fifth choice striker but realises that after two years out, Bojinov must be desperate to start regularly. I can't see him hanging about if a good offer is made.
