Following on from the recent posts I have written about Daniel Sturridge here and here I made contact with Danny who writes one of the popular Man City blogs Bitter and Blue and asked a few questions about Sturridge.

Are you sad to see him go?
I am from the perspective of him being a player who has come through the ranks and is an undoubted talent. The talk has always been of his potential and him being a prodigy, and unfortunately we are not going to see if this is fulfilled. However, he has tarnished himself to a large section of fans by his actions and the way he (and his advisors) have conducted themselves.

If you could travel back in time, would you of kept him?
Ideally yes, but at what price? For the amounts of money he was reportedly wanting though, you cannot offer this to a player who has played barely a dozen times.

Whats his best asset?
A natural instinct and eye for the game. He has that selfish quality that top players seem to have. He looks completely at home at this level even given his young age.

Whats his worst?
Not necessarily a worst asset as such but what could hold him back is that he isn't an out and out striker, such as Anelka. This is why he was overlooked early last season when we were struggling for strikers, because Hughes didn't feel he was capable of leading the line as a solitary striker.

There are reports that he was greedy and wanted ridiculous sums of money. Do you think this is the reason City are letting him go?
I find it sad that both sides weren't willing to concede a little ground to get a deal done. I didn't think he would leave though, and I would be extremely surprised if he got more playing time at Chelsea, and if he was being paid more than we were prepared to offer. Which leads me to believe that there may have been something more 'behind the scenes' between him and Hughes that led to him leaving.

Many thanks Danny for your contribution!
