'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No Hart Left In Joe

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is on the verge of turning his back on the club after refusing to sign a new contract.

Hart's main gripe is thought to be money orientated. The 21-year-old is believed to be pulling in 5,000 a week; however, the England U-21 wants at least double that amount.

A source close to Hart said...

'After the season he has had it was a real slap in the face. He was appalled by what they offered.'

The 6'5' shot stopper signed for Manchester City in May 2006 from Shrewsbury Town in a deal, which could have rose to 1.5million, depending on first team appearances.

The news has disappointed many of the City faithful especially after fellow keepers Kasper Schmeichel and Andreas Isaksson are rumoured to be close to quitting the club.

FFS. A t*sser element persists in Manchester City's heirarchy. Tight arsed again. Get a grip Thaksin and prioritise. We need stability and the players are as uncomfortable as we are. Bojinov's agent also talking up a departure. Sort it City.

Send Issakson over to us please! Niemi is getting a bit poor. Shame to see your club suddenly falling apart! Thaksin is an idiot! Hope all goes well for your future!

considering the lunacy of your chairman in even suggesting getting rid of Sven, Hart may be the first of many - unfortunately for City

Whats he complaining about? 5,000 is good, why don't he try getting 8 a week like my grandad (City hall of famer) Fred Tilson got in the 1930's. Footballers these days don't know their born!
