Not joining City

Recommended Posts

Watching Everton I can't help but think that our one time public target Gylfi Sigurdsson must really look upon turning us down as a missed opportunity. 

 

Similarly Jordan Vertout must really regret his decision to choose Villa over us. 

 

Obviously these transfers almost surely would have changed the status quo, things wouldn't be the same if they had been made, but they must be looking on their decisions in a negative light. 

 

Can anyone think of any more instances where denying the city was a poor decision?

Wasn’t Veretout a red herring to persuade Kante to sign? (Or something along those lines).

The weird thing is that if Veretout had joined us then we almost certainly wouldn’t have signed Kante and then probably not won the league. 

 

He might then be thinking he should have joined Villa

Oh yeah. These regrets come with hindsight and almost certainly would've changed the face of things.

Esteban Cambiasso choosing to not renew his contract must have stung a little
