Soccer City FC
'Jô who?' all the fans will be saying.
If the reports are true, our new signing, Jô, will miss training with the team and the start of the season (possibly making his first appearance in September!). The Brazilian manager is calling him up to join the squad for the Olympics (Group C for all those that are able to watch). 8th August sees Brazil's first match, against Belgium, the final will be played on 23rd August. Never having won this competition, Brazil will be more than eager to show off the gold medals to one of the most ardent supporters of soccer.
So, all that points to our Blues without their new striker for over a month, missing not only the start of the Premiership, but more importantly, two UEFA matches. On the away leg to EB/Streymur in the Faroes, Richard Dunne says it all, "This is a game we have to win."
So, it's: 'Step up last season's strike force, show the boss that you should be chosen for the position of striker and put the ball in the net - repeatedly'. With a talent like Jô's waiting in the wings, this is your once in a 'Blue Moon' time to shine.
It's turning out to be a typical City roller coaster ride!
