Charlie Stays At The Chaos Factory!

Charlie Stays At The Chaos Factory!

Mark Hughes evidently has strong powers of persuasion and I for one would not want to be trapped in an office with our erstwhile Derby Day nemesis for too long...

It's refreshing to see a top flight player being prepared to stick around, shun a pay rise in the capital and fight for his place at City. Vedran Corlukla is a gifted young player, there is no doubt, and has gone on record before in saying how the people at Eastlands have helped him so much to settle in England.

Hughes said: "I am a huge admirer of Vedran. He is a top-class player with a bright future ahead of him and I am delighted that he continues to be a part of our plans at City. It is a real boost for everyone at the club."

You're not kidding, Bluesy. Now Hughes must turn his attention to sorting out the MCFC futures of the no doubt ill advised Michael Johnson and Stephen Ireland whilst preparing the squad for an important week out on the pitch.

Meanwhile, the nonsense that is the Daily Mirror for one, have been foaming at the mouth over a coming Manchester City meltdown. Sure, our future rests on an absolute knife-edge but if we can keep our squad together this summer and fend off the creeping adavances of The Big Four, Hughes might just be able to achieve something by January when the vultures will be circling again.

As for the footy itself, Manchester City are never more dangerous than when we have been written off and our backs are too the wall. Just ask any rag.

Somebody at City has got to get a grip on these agents. Considering Thaksin and Cook have been tied up with bigger financial fish to fry, would they have been circulating Corluka's name for sale? I'm beginning to wonder who told Ireland to stay home too. There is a glaring hole between the club hierarchy and the team for agents to *****stir in and needs fixing, fast.

Reorted that is was Aldridge told Ireland that he was being sold. This saga is far from being over JB. I entirely agree that the need to keep the squad together is essential.

Aldridge. Of course, the new "chief operating officer" whatever that means. So he was obviously acting for Cook. Is Hughes acting against the hierarchy? It stinks and we need answers. This is going to be some week...

Certainly leaves Spurs short of defensive options at the weekend.

What I would like is to hear from Charlie himself and see what the truth is. If he does indeed want to go, then we should let him, but the price must be right. If he has had a medical without agreeing a fee, that was a waste of time.

But honestly what difference would it make if he did leave we are both teams looking for the same place and challenging in the same cups Charlie should stay and i think he will staqy aswell

DD will he give us 100% if he wants to go elsewhere, he sees Spuds buying all those new players and what have we got, a defender who can play exactly where Charlie plays and a striker and loads of news regarding 'On the Run Frank'. DD I don't want him to stay if his heart not in it, but I wont let him go for less than we paid unless we have a 25% sell on clause or something similar.
