I agree re Cole but as LM says he was ill for a couple of days so was a gamble.
In regards to Johnson only playing half a season in the Prem I think it's fair to say he is very talented and could (I believe would) have been a revelation if he was picked. At the very least he has been keeping SWP out of the Man City starting line up since his arrival so hopefully would have provided more.
