Bluesy Going Nowhere

Bluesy Going Nowhere

At last some clear blue positivity shines out from The City of Manchester Stadium. Bluesy has a job to do...

There will be a collective sigh of relief across Planet Blue tonight which will ease our concerns going into a challenging few days out on the park. The man they called "El Toro" at Barcelona is proving one tough nut for the media, the agents and the club's enemies to crack.

City's official site reports:

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has totally dismissed suggestions circulating in the media that he is going to leave the club.

"There have been a lot of rumours flying around but I am not going anywhere,' he declares, 'and I don`t anticipate going anywhere.'

"There is speculation around the club and that has been prevalent since I joined the club but from my own point of view I am very focussed on what I am about and what I aim to achieve here and that means success on the pitch," he says.

"Nothing whatsoever has changed in that respect and the football operation hasn`t changed since I signed for the club. Nor has my relationship with Garry Cook and his team. We get on really well and continue to speak on a daily basis.

"I am the guy that makes the decisions in relation to the football, and they make the decisions in relation to the running of the club.'

- Now let's get behind him and the team and win some football matches.

Official word at last! Now let's all concentrate on the small matter of Thursday's football match in the UEFA Cup. Altogether now ....... BLUE MOON ...... YOU SAW ME STANDING ALONE ..... WITHOUT A DREAM IN MY HEART ..... WITHOUT A LOVE OF MY OWN!

Quite honestly, it's as if he is running the whole shooting match. Here's to his resilience being rewarded!

Top Man Hughesy, anyway it wouldn't look good on his CV.

I think as City 81 said in another article comment, a signing would not go amiss, do we have any money? here we go again!!

Finally, sod off press speculation and go do something interesting! Anyway if Frank gets done and the FA take City off him, its not Cooks fault or Hughes so we will just get another investor from the USA or Dubai which Gary Cook will be able to sort out because from his time in Nike he must know business people and investors (don't forget he came from Nike a massive company that was and still is successful, plus he’s experienced in sport business, making Michael Jordon (USA Basketball player) a big hit) they will live on with City and we will still be awesome, so we don't need to worry! Future is blue…

News breaking from Daily Mail tonight, if true, is that Corluka has put in a transfer request. Watch this space!
12/08/2008 21:42:00
Everything about Corluka will become clear in a game Thursday, I think if he play in this round he can not play to another club in the Europ ( I'm not sure ).

We could always sue all the media saying all these lies and ask for compensation, we could use the money compensated and get another player. HaHa...
