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

State Of Emergency!

Manchester City FC is on the verge of imploding - perhaps. The media bandwagon is in a writing frenzy, publishing everything that could be construed as negative, but what about the fans.

Club owner Thaksin Shinawatra and his family have fled Thailand and are now in self-imposed exile. And to top it all, the Thai Courts have issued arrest warrants for both he and Mrs Frank.

The above paragraph is enough to send a shiver down many a Blues spine, but what about the Football Associations 'Fit & Proper' person policy. If the FA gets their teeth into Mr Thaksin the club could be up the creek without a paddle.

There are more questions than answers; however, this is where you come in. The front-page articles and message boards are seeing a deluge of disgruntled City fans, voicing their opinion. Isn't it about time you voiced yours?

He still hasn't been convicted of anything & he's unlikely to now, so the fit & proper bthing doesn't come into it.

I don't know what all this talk about financial meltdown is all about as ALL Premiership clubs collect 40m from Sky this month. As for Frank and the stupid talk of points deduction etc. you should listen to the legal expert on these matters who says Frank cannot be charged as an unfit and proper person without trial and even if he gets tried 'In abstentia' it will still not count and therefore cannot be charged by the FA as being unfit. So as I said before strap yourselves in for a hairy helter skelter ride this month.

Any comments on today's revelation that Wardle has lent money to Thaksin to pay staff wages last month??!!

Cook has spoken to the MUEN: "City's future is not in jeopardy," Mr Cook told the M.E.N. "In the short term, it is business as usual. We don't rely on Dr Thaksin's money. When Mark Hughes makes a decision we go through the normal process, which can include banks, finance, or a whole bunch of different things just like any other club." - Mr Cook admitted the club was no longer running on its original strategy of 'over- investment.' - (ANYBODY KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?) "He is willing to look at whatever it takes to make City a great football club," said Mr Cook. "This is a guy who loves City."

Johnny, on your other thread yesterday, I posted info that I was aware of in respect of your cash crisis, and today the need for more non-corporate borrowing from the ex-chairman has been confirmed. So my information was gilt-edged. Irrespective of any payments from Sky, you have a bunch of serious commitments to be met in respect of previous 'over-investment', if the PL feel that events are such that these payments cannot be made or they aren't made in a timely manner, or that no reasonable assurances can be given, then the next step for you would be a ban on transfers , withholding of PL cash and almost certainly a short 'fire-sale' before the transfer window closes. There is now a scramble to find new investors, i hope for Manc sake one steps forward.

Fingers and everything crossed, Spursex!

if the fa nwe about all this they should have not let him come in and buy the club cause clearly this is what would of happened. What is city going to be like this time next year will we be the same club thats what i want to know
dunne deal
DD - dont know what's going to happen next week, let alone next year! Still feel a lot of our current situation has been glorified by the press and agents alike, but no doubt more information will out in the next week or so. Hopefully our spirits will be lifted on Thursday when we return to the small matter of playing a football match.
