I think some people need to calm down and stop giving it the "big club" billy big bollocks routine. Us signing Darren Bent for a fee in the region of £20 million pounds is a statement of intent, but it's nothing to do with us being a "big club". This is all Randy's doing and don't you forget it.
This is a statement of intent from Randy Lerner, nobody else.
Before you start flipping Holloway the v's and asking him "Who's a half-arsed club now?" remember that we're incredibly lucky to have an owner like Randy Lerner.
This signing has given me a small taste of what it must be like to be a Man City fan. Fair play to them, this is exciting! I'm not going to start getting ideas above my station though and go around branding us a "big club" that's "back" because our owner has decided to splurge some cash.
On a more positive note however, WA-HOO! What a signing this will be! Exactly what we need. Someone to stick the ball into the back of the net. We've been crying out for this for years.
