Former Nottingham Forest and Liverpool winger Anderson, 24, has signed a two-year deal at Portman Road, while Emmanuel-Thomas has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with City.

Anderson made 23 appearances in his one season at Ashton Gate, scoring three times, after joining the club from Forest in the summer of 2012.

He began his career as a trainee at Hull before spending three years at Liverpool, for whom he failed to make a first-team appearance.

Anderson had a loan spell at Swansea before joining Forest after an initial loan spell in June 2009 for £250,000.

Emmanuel-Thomas, 22, joins back up with City boss Sean O'Driscoll, who previously signed him on loan at Doncaster.

The Arsenal academy product has had loan spells at Blackpool, Doncaster and Cardiff before Ipswich paid in excess of £1million for him in July 2011.

Emmanuel-Thomas made 75 appearances for Ipswich, scoring nine goals.

Bristol City have also signed midfielder Scott Wagstaff, who had been with Charlton since the age of eight, but was released earlier this summer.

He made over 150 first-team appearances for the Addicks and had loan spells at Bournemouth, Northwich Victoria and Leyton Orient for whom he made seven appearances last season.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
