Man City Strike Force: Power Ranking Top Strikers
Over the past several years, Manchester City have taken an extremely large amount of money and spent it. On some of the most quality players in the world. Some have worked out see David Silva while others haven't see Robinho. What Man City have done with the money poured into the team is create a squad that has too many individual talents to not challenge for the Barclays Premier League title, and in the future, the Champions League.
One position that is very much abundant for the blue side of Manchester is the striker position. With six world class talents, it is impossible to think they can keep everyone happy without selling or loaning out some of their players. So, I have decided to power rank Manchester City's six.
Roque Santa Cruz is tied for the Paraguayan national team's all time goal scoring record with During his time at Eastlands, he has not found much success, being left out of many games by Roberto Mancini.
He has made it clear he wants to leave the club when the right offer comes. Mario, Mario, Mario. Mario Balotelli has become more famous for his off field antics than his on field play. He is an immensely talented striker, but he is still young and very immature. He had a rough childhood, but he will need to grow up to become an elite player. Other times he is head scratching, caught throwing darts at people and, of course, that recent back heel against the LA Galaxy.
The list goes on and on. He shows up for big games, but he needs to start playing well game in and game out to move up this list. In January, the Blues bought the Bosnian Diamond for 27 million pounds. Edin went on to score six goals in all competitions, including two very important goals in the Premiership and one in the FA Cup against Notts County, that if he hadn't scored, Man City wouldn't have been able to force a replay and eventually win the Cup.
Not bad for his first five months in England. But, with all of the strikers on the squad, he will have to prove himself and score more goals than last season. That's why they bought him. To score goals. It will be interesting to see how much playing time Mancini gives him. Emmanuel Adebayor has always had a nose for goal.
In , he registered fifteen goals for the blue crew, and in , become the first City player to ever score a hat trick in a European competition. Soon after, however, things turned sour. Adebayor fell down the pecking order after the acquisition of Edin Dzeko and emergence of Mario Balotelli.
He was loaned out to Real Madrid for the second half of the campaign, and slowly progressed in La Liga. The Blues left him out of the pre-season tour of the US, and Adebayor sounded off, criticizing the staff at the club. According to reports, Real Madrid are interested in inking the Togolese footballer permanently.
It might be a good idea to get rid of an unhappy striker in a dressing room with too many egos already. Carlos Tevez has more quality than any other striker at Eastlands. In two seasons, he averages over half a goal a game in the Premier League. His work rate is outstanding. Then why did I rank him 2? Because of his personality. Although a magnificent goal scorer, he often complains about wanting to leave the club, citing his daughters or that he "dislikes Manchester". Compare him to David Silva, a player with just as much quality who NEVER would talk about the club and drag on about how he wants to leave this.
While he leaves his heart and soul on the pitch, off the field, he's a mess. It's tough to have that distraction where Manchester City want to become a big European club. Sometimes I think Mancini is too scared to confront Tevez, to the point where it's ridiculous.
If Tevez can limit his off field issues, this team could win multiple pieces of silverware. Sergio Aguero is the latest acquisition for Manchester City.
He was the youngest player ever to play in the Argentinian first division, when he was only Out of his five seasons in the Spanish Primera Division, last year was his best, scoring twenty goals. He was probably Argentina's lone bright spot at the Copa America, leading the team with 3 goals.
He is Manchester City's best striker. First of all, he is very young at 23 years of age. He is somewhat of an insurance policy on Carlos Tevez, but if Tevez stays, you can say the best strike tandem in the Premiership and who knows, maybe the world is currently at Eastlands. If this were to happen, Tevez would likely sit deeper and get the ball, with Aguero up top.
Could you imagine Silva, Tevez and Aguero as the three main attacking players?
Euro Paper Talk: Woodward talks to bring big-name striker to Man Utd
Sergio Aguero has always been a top-quality goalscorer, but Pep Guardiola unlocked his world-class potential at Manchester City , according to Francis Lee. The Argentina international moved to Etihad Stadium from Atletico Madrid back in , and has since established himself as one of the finest centre-forwards of the modern era. City have won 12 major trophies over the last decade, including four Premier League titles, and they are on course for more major silverware this season. Aguero has contributed 21 goals to City's cause, and he became the Premier League's highest-scoring overseas player when he netted a hat-trick in a win over Aston Villa on January

Coronavirus lockdown: Man City striker Aguero reacts exactly like FIFA character
Former Manchester City and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli insists that he 'only has good memories of the Premier League', which he describes as 'the best' league in the world. The Italian centre-forward scored 20 goals in England 's top flight for City, winning the Premier League with them in after an FA Cup triumph the year before. However, his time at Liverpool after a short spell with AC Milan was much less successful, with Balotelli managing a solitary goal in 16 league outings. Despite this, the striker says he remembers his time in England fondly, and hailed the strength of the competition. The French league is physical too, though. Balotelli has long held a reputation for his antics off the field as much as on them, but the year-old defended his actions as a younger man. And the striker praised the two coaches that helped him progress the most, particularly his compatriot at City. Balotelli also put together a line-up of players he believes to be the best ever in their respective positions.
Manchester City Transfer Rumours: 8 Strikers Linked to the Citizens
The Argentine great could be coming to the end of his Manchester City career, the M. Rather than waiting until that minute to replace him, City should be proactive and look for a long-term successor in the coming months. That would allow the chosen striker to spend a year learning from Aguero, with a view to taking over the campaign after next. City already have Gabriel Jesus lining up to take over the main striking duties, but it would serve them well to have two elite prospects competing for the No. The following players have all registered promising numbers for both expected goals a model which assigns a value to a shot based on the historic likelihood of a similar chance being converted and post-shot expected goals which also factors where within the goal frame the shot ends up.
Even though Manchester City are the top of the English Premier League and have what is believed to be one of the most talented strike cores in all of Europe, the Citizens are still being linked to even more attacking talent. The return of Carlos Tevez is expected to give a little extra boost if he can get back to goal scoring form. Tevez is likely to leave in the summer and both Aguero and Balotelli could be expendable.

At 31 the Argentine is now entering the twilight of his career and Manchester City will consider how they will replace their main man. He has scored more goals than anyone else in the Abu Dhabi-led era, famously delivering the most dramatic Premier League moment of all-time and showing up for the Etihad Stadium side time and time again. But at 31 the Argentine is now entering the twilight of his career and City must consider how they will replace their main man. The year-old has netted 10 times in 24 Premier League appearances this season, also netting five times in six Champions League games. Even so, Jesus has a habit of spurning clear opportunities and scoring the more difficult ones.

На нашем рынке вы бы и дня не продержались. - Наличными, прямо сейчас, - сказал Беккер, доставая из кармана пиджака конверт. Я очень хочу домой.
Сьюзан ничего не ответила.
Она снова почувствовала себя школьницей. Это чувство было очень приятно, ничто не должно было его омрачить. И его ничто не омрачало. Их отношения развивались медленно и романтично: встречи украдкой, если позволяли дела, долгие прогулки по университетскому городку, чашечка капуччино у Мерлутти поздно вечером, иногда лекции и концерты.
Сьюзан вдруг поняла, что стала смеяться гораздо чаще, чем раньше.

О кольце он позаботиться не успел, слова пришли сами. Именно это и нравилось ей в нем - спонтанность решений. Она надолго прижалась губами к его губам. Он обвил ее руками, и они сами собой начали стягивать с нее ночную рубашку.
