Obviously not, they've signed him.

Think he's a decent enough squad player for a top-six side to have. Just chosen some terrible clubs in the past!

Truly the master of making his way into the big leagues despite never actually being that good. Did he even play for Southampton since signing?

Yes. Against Liverpool when they let in six! He obviously impressed them!! (He was described in the Mail match report as 'the hopeless Caulker!)

I don't think you can read too much into our PL performances. We were simply awful and some player reputations were damaged as a result. Caulker was under siege all season, but I felt he performed as well as any centre half we have had at City since Don Murray.

Unfortunately, his exit from City was via QPR, which was a poor choice on his behalf, but good business for City.

In case anyone missed it last night, Caulker made his debut for Liverpools as a late substitution - playing as a striker! Although I don't believe he touched the ball, he made a run that dragged Mertesacker out of position and arguably gave Allen the space to get his shot away.

Maybe Malky should of tried it...

He scored the winner against the Jacks which automatically means he is a Club legend but I still don't rate him as a top quality centre back.
