Edin Dzeko an apology

I must admit I have been quite a vocal critic of Edin Dzeko.  I wasn't impressed by what I had seen in his first few months.  Play the ball into him with players around him he would lose it very easily as his first touch was always heavy.  The press was just as unimpressed similar comments were made that City had wasted £27 million.

Fast forward to the start of the season he ran the show against Swansea yes sometimes that dodgy first touch was still there but when he ran with the ball he caused panic he scored a goal which needed split second reactions. He played a part with the ball into the box that lead to Aguero flicking back for Silva  Then against Bolton he scored again running through drawing an experienced keeper in Jussi Jaaskelainen out to create the space to score.

Then today V Tottenham we saw the "perfect hattrick" one with his left one with his right and one with his head.  He even followed that up with a thunder bolt for his 4th proving despite some dodgy goalkeeping his goal V United in the Community Shield was no fluke.

Yes I finally do see what he can bring to the team he is a poacher (something City haven't had for a while) He is a link up man he can head and can shoot.  He was labelled a "pony" by Danny Simpson on twitter something which he today took back with "As for Dzeko, gotta swallow what I said, he's come good n showin he's class! He's now not haha!" 

It's amazing what a pre season can do for a player   He has comeback the player we had heard about really hope he continues to make the critics and me eat their words
