Man City Look All Set To Sheikh The Premiership

Man City Look All Set To Sheikh The Premiership

Abu Dhabi look set to complete the takeover of Manchester City by the end of the week for a reported £210 million pounds.

On Transfer Deadline day, the news broke that Manchester City had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Abu Dhabi. However it seems now that the next document that will be signed will be the completion of the takeover by the Middle East consortium.

The perspective new owners have wasted no time in signalling their intent, by signing Robinho, and have held talks with Manchester City Council, about the possible purchase of the City Of Manchester Stadium.

The Takeover is both beneficial to the club and Thaksin Shinawatra. Thaksin spent £81.6 million pounds in 2007, and is now set to make a profit, in which will only prove Thaksin is a shrewd business man.

It has been reported that the new owners, will spend around £300-500 million pounds to strengthen the squad, which would certainly improve what good quality we already have. I will not state that it will make us win trophies, because as everybody is keen to point out, money is not guaranteed to buy success. Also Abu Dhabi is in the process of completing a business plan to make "City" a global brand, imagine this scenario:

I step out of my City Car, Wearing My City fashion gear, where I walk inside City Eating, and take out my City Card, where I order a Double Bacon 'Binho with large Zabaleta`s and Bojinov Sauce. I then order City`s energy drink 24/7 before checking my City Phone, for the time.


The only thing I am certain of, is that the next few years will provide some very exciting times for Manchester City!

Further News on Thaksin Shinawatra:

Thaksin Shinawatra`s brother-in-law, has been nominated by Thailand`s government party the People`s Power Party to become the next prime minister. Looks like Thaksin is still going to be headline news in Thailand, whether he owns Manchester City or not.

isn't this a case of another false dawn - the last one being the dodgy Thai?

Wonderful Aaron. I love the "'Binho with large Zabaletas" Seriously though there is no reason why Abu Dhabi can't establish a "City" brand. But we have to understand that Manchester City would be just a part of the brand -- not the other way around! I see no problem with a football club forming part of a brand which specialises in Sport and Leisure. This is what ADUG says it wants to do -- so no problem. But I do get concerned with all the nonsense spoken about Manchester City being the "richest football club in the world." That is just nonsense; the truth being that Manchester City is an investment of a much larger sport and leisure company. Look at how much the ADUG is paying for us. That is our real value to them. If they were buying the Rags you would have to add a "0" on the end.

No false dawn this time! Just heard that the Double Bacon Binho's have been cancelled due to the impending arrival of Ronaldo! They have been replaced on the menu with SWPs (Salad With Pesto).
