Former Blues to return?

Lost amidst the weekends transfer stunners was news that one former Blue is on his way to the Premiership and another may soon be making a swift return.
Full-back Niclas Jensen has signed for Fulham from Borrussia Dortmund this weekend three seasons after moving to Germany from City after falling foul of then boss Kevin Keegan following a contract bust-up. In truth, we struggled to replace Jensen, with Tiatto, Tarnat and now Ben Thatcher not really offering anything more than Jensen did. But, having gotten on the wrong side of Keegan there was no way back.
Nicolas Anelka was not expected to stay out of the news for too long but even he has probably excelled himself with expressing his desire to move to Newcastle some six months after leaving City for Fenerbahce in pursuit of Champions Leage football. I was always a staunch defender of Anelka throughout his time at City but even I admit I sometimes wonder what he is thinking.
Let's see - he leaves City for Champions League football and at Fenerbahce qualifies for the Champions League this season. So he is now interested in a move to Newcastle who lost weekend opened up their season with an Inter-toto qualifier in the hope of gaining entry to the UEFA Cup. Hmmm...
