I have to say the whole saga has been quite interesting to follow. I’m sure that city would have sued him for breach of contract if they coukld have, which makes me think there is a lot more to it than we are able to read.Posted 6 years ago
Pobrecito has lost 9.3M GBP since his last game. 😯
They could just sack him for gross misconduct, but they’d lose out on 25million or so transfer cash, hence why he’s currently
rottinghiding out in Argentina.
I personally still don’t understand how a foriegn footballer can come to this country & not be bothered to learn English, if my career to me to a foreign country for more than 2 days the first thing I’d do is try & learn some language.Posted 6 years agoGlitterGaryMember

Can’t understand why City haven’t sued him for breach of contract.
Because it would be virtually impossible to actually get any money from him even if they won (see Chelsea and Muta)their best bet is to try and sell him.
chelsea are still trying to recover something like £5m from Mutu aren’t they? 😆Posted 6 years ago
that a nd he is a tad emotional/unstable
I think its just that he’s not the sharpest knife in the block, and that Joorabchian is a nasty piece of work who will just take advantage of him until he’s has screwed his career, then move onto his other victims.
Kind of reminds me of when Don King took control of Tyson, he had a chance with his old trainer, but when he died king screwed him over and messed his head up.Posted 6 years ago
Ballotelli got done because of his reputation, look at the city Liverpool game, Johnsons tackle and Gerrard charging at a player and knocking him off the ball. The FA seem to be just making charges according to what the papers (or their favourite managers) say, rather than what happened.Posted 6 years ago
Balotelli’s driving is absolutely 😯
Unless that was someone else driving his white Bentley into central Manchester last week at lunchtime.
Came roaring down towards Deansgate station, slammed on hard and did this a few times. I thought it was haphazard verging on pissed.
On Tevez, if hes ‘owned’ how much of his salary goes to his ‘owners?Posted 6 years ago
Lescotts challenge was worse than Ballotelli’s. A lack of consistency at the FA? Surely not?
At the end of the day, City pay more than anyone else can feasibly afford. And they artificially inflate transfer fees due to their oodles of cash, and price everyone else out of the market. As a resut, nobody can afford either his wages or the transfer fee. So he’s stuck there until they take a massive hit.
I’m only amazed that Tevez is the only player on their books having an expensive holiday. Does Adabajor count? Playing for someone else while City pay most of his wagesPosted 6 years ago
That was quite interesting actually Hora. A quick google Maps session reveals the distance from where I was born and grew up
The Reebok – 11 miles
Old Trafford 14 miles
DW Stadium – 14.6 miles
Goodison Park – 23 miles
Anfield 26. miles
So… looks like I’ll have to be a Bolton fan. Though there’s only 3 miles in it. You’ll have to tell Debs though. I’m not! I’m not sure how she’ll take a Man Yoo fan switching allegiance at this point in proceedings, but I doubt it’ll be positivePosted 6 years ago
Well for everyone who lives in an area with a Conference League, Div2 etc etc team I guess it gives them the opportunity to watch someone who wins I guess. Saying that look at say a Bury fan who will travel to the away matches to support his/her team.
If I was to be a Manchester footy fan it’d probably have been City.Posted 6 years agobren2709Member
Both challenges were deliberate and with intent!Posted 6 years ago
You notice Scotty and Kabba didn’t make a meal of it, other so called foreign prem stars would have been rolling around trying there hardest to get the offender sent off!
As for the statement about Adeb’s wages being paid by City what you will find is that it will only be a % of the £225k a week he’s on! Long may it continue, City’s loss and Spurs gain for this season!
