Kei Kamara has got some script writer. The striker’s back story and flight from war-torn Sierra Leone is a moving tale. The latest chapter is a gripping read as well.

In both Premier League cameos so far, Kamara has made things happen on and off the field. That is no mean feat. Against Fulham his arrival sparked a late flurry of concerted pressure around Mark Schwarzer’s goalmouth that for the majority of a lifeless encounter had been well-protected.

Against Everton he went one better. A sublime leap and crashing header underneath Tim Howard with Everton’s totemic aerial presence Marouane Fellaini left trailing in Kamara’s slipstream at the Toffees’ near post.

Frankly, City looked every bit as laboured as they had against Fulham up to that point of a quite bizarre Premier League duel. Kamara’s arrival just before the hour mark sparked a shift in the dynamic.

A far post bicycle kick barely a minute after his entrance was grasped by Howard. A header six yards out dropped wide after Wes Hoolahan finally had the sort of mobile target you suspect the Irishman had been craving.

Everton failed to heed the warning, but Kamara was not finished; battling his dance partner Sebastien Bassong who glanced Russell Martin’s cross towards the feet of match-winner Holt. Kamara has already delivered a rich dividend barely 45 minutes into his City stint.

  • Pondy, spot on with BJ. He has shown the likes of Barton and Fellaini (I like felony!) that there`s a new kid on the block. Despite tha fact that Ken Bates said "the lad can`t play anyway" - when he joined us for free!! OTBC.

  • Shows how marginal things have been this season. Apart form one or two blips the margins have only been a goal either way with lots of draws. IF we had conceded in those draws we would be in dire straits but IF we had scored we would have been safe already. The difference on Saturday was two excellent crosses and two excellent goals. There is not much between the middle 16 clubs as results against Everton & Spurs have shown. Johnson an unsung hero for the season as a whole. A pivotal point last year was his spat with Barton. His work up against Felony on Saturday may yet prove equally important. .

  • City don't quite seem to know their preferred lineup in midfield when they play 4-4-2.Defence and attack seem to be sorted,CH needs to tinker a bit with the midfield and we can get on our way.
