Hamman named player of the month

Classy midfield maestro Dietmar Hamann has won the Thomas Cook Manchester City Player of the Month
for August and September.
The German star has been outstanding in the role he
makes his own with some vital displays since the season started. Micah Richards,
Richard Dunne and Kasper Schmeichel could all have been winners, but the panel
gave the award to the 34-year-old.

No great surprises with this one as Hamman has been one of the key performers of the side this season and played a vital role in the development of Michael Johnson in doing the some of the more 'dirty work' to allow Johnson more of a creative licence.

All of this far removed from last season injury hit nightmare when he never got fit or had a settled run in the side, and also a surprise given it was widely thought he would be one of the players offloaded when the new regime took over.

vote it up!

I thought we'd got the best bargain of all time when we only had to pay £300,000 compensation to Bolton for Didi. And then he turned out to be a total waste of space.

Contrast that with this season. His pace has picked up, he's sharp into the tackle, and most important, his passes are incisive - actually reaching blue shirts.

I should be asking him, and a number of other players why they didn't contribute last season, but I'll let that go. I think Sven will be asking far more sweeping questions from his 'second string' after the Coventry match....
