Adebayor – en god nummer 70

Emmanuel Adebayor (25) visste nok ikke at han ble et lite stykke City-historie da han signerte med klubben lørdag. Men spissen fra Togo ble den 70. spilleren City har kjøpt for en million pund eller mer, alt dette i løpet av nesten nøyaktig 30 år.

Steve Daley ble Citys første million-pund-spiller da han kom fra Wolves i september 1979. Og Adebayor er den føreløpig siste, men det forblir han garantert ikke. Nummer 71 kommer ganske sikkert i løpet av en uke eller to.

Manchester City har alltid strødd rundt seg med penger, enten egne eller andres, og klubben var den første klubben i England som kjøpte tre million-pund-spillere (Steve Daley, Kevin Reeves og Trevor Francis).

Her er i hvert fall alle Citys «million pund-overganger» – fra minst til størst – siden ulykksalige Steve Daley og Malcolm Allison (der fikk jeg nevnt han igjen) den triste september-dagen i 1979.
