Liverpool to cash in on sacking by bidding for £12m man: Would be a great signing!

Manchester City it seems have somewhat unwisely sacked their manager, obviously their fans didn’t want this to happen but for some reason Thaksin felt that what could still be City’s best season since 1992 is somehow not good enough, now it has possibly left the door open for their top talent to exit from.

You have got to feel sorry for Man City fans, Sven started the season with a bang and even though recent months have been lean they still stand in ninth place and mathematically they could even finish as high as sixth. However for some reason their Thai chairman decided enough was enough, and surely this must worry Blues fans in terms of where it leaves there top players who will surely now be angered by the decision to sack the Swede as they wait nervously to see who replaces him. Liverpool could be the big winners here because Michael Johnson is an England star of the future who may well feel that this could be his cue to leave. How do City fans feel about Thaksin’s decision to swing the axe? And do Liverpool fans rate Johnson highly?
