From An Alleged Employee Of Manchester City

Vital Manchester City received the following article from a disgruntled Man City employee, although the origin cannot be verified.

'I'm sorry to say this, as a life long fan and - for the last few (for me at least) unforgettable months - employee, MCFC as we know it is finished. Here are the FACTS, for those who really want to know. Thaksin is, as of midnight 10th August 2008, an international fugitive.'

'He now has to be found guilty of corruption in Thailand in his absence, offering no defence. Extradition requests will surely follow.'

'The Premier League will then have to find him short of the fit and proper ownership rules (and believe me, the pressure for that from fellow 'members' has been growing since June).'

'Thaksin is trying to palm off City onto whoever will now take it, an insolvent mess of a business, completely incapable of sustaining itself.'

'The truth is that the only interested party (until recently) - Wardle - is not now able to bail City out now, he can't come close on his own and no partners have been found. The wage bill and commitments due on the last 2 years' transfers have spiralled out of control.'

'The Corluka affair is the last straw - I personally worked on the deal and can assure anyone interested that he has already been transferred to Tottenham. Spurs have this evening started legal action, and he will be barred from playing for City following an injunction in the courts tomorrow.'

'Personally I expect Hughes to then resign on principal (he has no choice now, he is on record as saying that he will have final say on all transfers). Many wont believe any of this, but a few will.'

'I am very close to this situation (readers will never know who I am or how close - a few would know my name but it isn't appropriate to for me to come 'out') - trust me, I am close enough to know what has happened in the last fortnight, I am p*ssed off with it (as a fan, and as someone who has worked hard for the club during the last 18 months or so) and it must be said, a little drunk.'

'I am posting this message on a few sites - apologies for those that keep reading it, but I want City fans to know what is happening. The sad truth is we are finished, and that as a result, the PL will be facing its biggest challenge since inception within two weeks of now.'

Points deduction?

He more than likely is mcfcthriller, nevertheless we're here to report what's going on in City land. You, like everyone else can voice you're opinion either here or on the forums.

mcfcthriller, I too have today been told from a very credible source that you now have a cash crisis and are being asked some serious questions by the PL about your ability to pay..if they are not fully satisfied with the answers, then you will have a full blown crisis on you hands..I hope for you sake that you have the answers, and can find the cash!

No idea whether this source is sound or not, but what would you do? Your wife is facing 3 years prison which is like a holiday to what you're going to get. Most of your money is frozen, and you have a business in massive debt but with multi-million pound assets! It's pretty common knowledge that everything he's done so far has been on 'tic', and it's only his smug confidence in the corrupt legal system he help create that has got him this far. We have to take the supporters blinkers off and see it from his point of view ... it's a business and he's not a fan. Is he really going to put the fans before his own personal circumstances. Thai citizens have 'disapeared' for far less! If we think the last 20 years have been rough, I don't think we've seen 'owt yet! 4/1 on Hughes being 1st to go ... grab it while you can!

The warrant is true, but the implications on City is a far stretched interpretation.

Is the game tomorrow or after tomorrow ?! I want to talk about soccer, I'm weary of talking politics, economics and law!
