SWP Petition Handed To City Official

SWP Petition Handed To City Official

Vital Man City regular Carl Tilson aka mcfcthriller liased with Eastlands officials during the AC Milan friendly a few weeks ago and handed in the following 'Bring Back Shaun Wright Phillips Petition'.

On July 2005, Shaun was sold to Chelsea for 21 million due to City in finance trouble.

Reports coming out of Stamford Bridge suggest Chelsea are having a major clear out and on that list is the Manchester City youth Academy prodigy Shaun Wright-Phillips which means he may have to re-think his football future, FA Cup winners Portsmouth has reportedly shown an interest in signing the 26-year-old winger. Recent reports state SWP is happy at Chelsea and will fight for his place but that remains to be seen!

Now that Brazilian ace Ronaldinho has snubbed City and signed for AC Milan, Blues fans are eager to capture the delights only SWP can achieve. So the team at Vital Manchester City started a petition because we wanted to give a voice to the City fans because after all, they are the heart of the club and their views are just as important as City Officials.

We the City faithful undersigned petition to Manchester City Football Club to invest in bringing Shaun Wright-Phillips back to the club where it wouldn't only be good for the team`s point of view, giving us a good balance on the right wing, it would fill the stadium (bringing money to the club), which would be good for a business point of view. Also, the fans and the spirit would be electric!

Will those in charge of City owner Thaksin Shinawatra's financial purse allow Mark Hughes to make a bid for the one and only Shaun Wright-Phillips.

Everyone will benefit from this - SWP will get regular football, the fans will be happy, bringing more people to matches, we'll finally have that cutting-edge and balance on the left and right of midfield with Petrov on the left wing and Shaun on the right wing, also it will give us lots of pace down the flanks.

We believe Shaun can return to his best especially with Hughes in charge, thus helping his chances of breaking into the England squad and getting his fitness levels up to a standard so he can outdo defenders creating more space for forwards and midfield.

Please make it happen!

Saimon blues - it simply sends out a message from the City faithful to the club, that the vast majority of us would love to see SWP back where he belongs.
19/08/2008 11:23:00
Phew, the coding took me longer than expected. Thanks for being patient! Right, back to business - how about if he came back on a season loan?
19/08/2008 11:39:00
....that's if Chelsea won't sell him and we can't afford his wages. Just an idea.
19/08/2008 11:42:00
That would do Tudor. We're embarrassingly short on the right!
19/08/2008 11:45:00
I guess it's down to the player and how much longer he wants to benchwarm for them without a regular 90 minutes of football!!

19/08/2008 12:04:00
True! Part of him has to think his best years are passing him by. He'd have been a City legend and an England regular if he'd stopped. Yet another ill-advised young man!
19/08/2008 12:15:00
Your more than welcome to have him back if you offer a decent price. Simply hasn't produced the goods at Chelsea.
19/08/2008 12:15:00
You don't get much opportunities to deliver the goods according to the stats at Chelsea. Go on then, how much?
