Sunday round up, Rumours that make you laugh.

We will start with the News of the World.

The all ever knowing with no proof  news of the world today claims, City will allow Tevez to return to Argentina because, well I gather from the story City’s a soft touch really or just a plain pack of mugs.

Verdict on the story load of  _ _ _ _  fill in your own word.


Sunday Mirror,

Cristiano Ronaldo wants £400,000 a week to join City. This is from a reliable source. The show pony wanted to leave Untied to live out his boyhood dream of playing for Real which he has done. Now £400,000 is a whole lot of money a week but this story is a bit far fetched.

Verdict – Lies, and a touch of fantasy.


The Sunday Times.

The Times claims that City big wigs are due to fly out to Italy in order to do a deal for Alexis Sanchez, The Udinese hitman is the main transfer target for the summer. Udinese have reportedly dropped the asking price to a realistic £26m from quotes of £35m. There is also rumours doing the rounds that Weiss would be put into the deal.

Verdict – A good possability that its the real deal, The Times do employ professionals who tend to stick to the boring truth rather that go making up wild stories.


Corriere dello Sport.

Juventus are to bid £35m for Tevez. Torres the no goal scoring former Liverpool player was bought up for £50m so surely Carlos is worth in or around the same.

Verdict – Italian papers are as bad if not worse that the British tabloids, pure pony.


The Tevez to Chelsea rumour, and Footy Bunker.

Why on earth they think City would sell Tevez to a premiership rival is beyond me. City are tarred as the money bags, so why would they need to unload one of the finest players in World football to a team they plan to challenge against ?

Verdict – so stupid why waste time and energy even writing this piece. Rumour spreading at its worst.


Mail on Sunday.

£4M for Bellamy, well it seems about right with 2 years left on his contact and City did pay somewhere £14m for his services. Paid out on wages while he played for his home town club Cardiff last season. Bellamy’s wages are £80,000 to £90,000 a week a lot for a player who cant play 3 games in a row.

Verdict – Seems to be real deal £4m is just about affordable for Cardiff and Bellers will have to take a massive wage cut.


If there are anymore ridiculous stories or rumours you want posted let me know, always glad to point out how stupid and lazy paid journalists are.

  2. That story about Tevez to Juve was for 35m Euro’s not £’s so it is more like £30m making it even more laughable. Why would he go anyway, another project to then move on when he got the project where they wanted it to be !
    Strange stories. Far more amusing reading the Rags apologist Ogden now being shown to be wrong on a number of fronts. I would also like to be a fly on the wall when little old wine drinker me is told that the Jones deal may not be on after all !!
    Good analysis though on the stories

  6. Well said Stretty Dave – the article had fuck all to do with United and Martin couldn’t resist a childish pop. Goes to show, you can won The Lottery but you can’t polish a load of turds… PMSL!!!

    Brian, no slagging United (oh sorry, Untied – the same joke you use over and over) off in your article and not 1 mention of ROM! I’m impressed! Looks like winning The Dave Bernstein Challenge Cup has mellowed a minority of you lot.

  8. Look, City got lucky this season, but everyone saying they’re here to stay, gonna win the league soon, blah blah blah are wide of the mark. Yeah, they’ll do all that if all the other teams just stand still but let’s face it, they’ve spent more than any other team in the EPL over the past 2 years and could STILL only finish 3rd- they were leading the table for a few ours over Crimbo. If Chelsea, Arsenal, Utd, Spurs and Liverpool don’t spend any money this year and sell all their players, City would still manage to blow it. As a team they’ll never really gel…….

  10. Red Manc, back again for more of the usual crap why dont you go read ROM it’s because its boring when you all argee and lick Scott arse for him. Why would I mention Untied in this article it’s about the Sunday tabloids and City related stories but I am glad you are impressed and enjoy reading the blog. More than welcome here anytime.

  12. @ Warren
    Think city in the last games of the season looked like a team that has started to gel. Pressure was on and while City of yester year may and folded this team stayed strong with clean sheets and came through for a group stage in the CL. Maybe you know sweet FA about football. The money spent by City is only catching up what all the other big money clubs have spent in last 5 -6 years it’s just a fast way og catching up to the compition which fans like you fear.

  14. I feel we should get Tevez and Adebayor out then bring in Eto’o who is looking to come to the Premier League, as well as Higuain. I have faith in both of them and Eto’o would be very useful in the Champions League. Perhaps we should start a petition.

  16. Fans like us fear?! Like last season when we took 4 points of you, won the league and runners up in The Champion’s League?! Yeah well scared!
