You would have to honestly say the record of City's scouts is mixed, at best, over the past 5 years or so. Sure, they've won the league, but that's because they've been able to buy two or three 20 million pound+ players every window, and if one of them didn't work out, oh well. Here we don't have that luxury, so there is more pressure to get it right, especially with the big money buys.
Hope we don't have to endure a Jo, a Santa Cruz, or a Robinho for every Kompany or Hart. It's impossible for us to look behind the scenes to see which scout was heavily backing which players, and who was really at the reins when those decisions were made, but I'm hoping that these are the ones who were advocating the better ones. How would our owners have any way of knowing which decisions these men were responsible for?
