Carrington Gets An Upgrade

Google language translator



Since Abu Dhabi took over our beloved Manchester City, they have been busy invested in every aspect of the club. The Investment on the pitch has so far, produced very little improvement except for the odd performance from Robinho. However the Investment off the field is beginning to show improvement.


A new state-of-the-art gym facility at City`s Carrington training centre is nearing completion, which will improve the performance of our men who put on the blue shirts. Gary Cook and Mark Hughes were both shown around the new facility and the players were shown an induction, to enable them to get the most out of their new equipment.


Gary Cook told the official website:


"I think the players are enjoying it, I don`t think many players would normally enjoy going to the gym but they seem to be now. It is proof yet again that the new owners have taken a look at all facets of the club, and one of the areas they looked at was making sure that this football club was one that would attract the best players. To do that you have to have the best facilities, and our new owners have set out to make sure their intentions are carried out."


"We`re continuing to build some concise plans here that cover all facets of the club. Mark picks a squad of 18 players at the weekend, but there over 300 employees at Manchester City, so we have to look at ways for changing our game all over MCFC to build a club for the future. "


"The gym is evidence of the changes that we will start to see all over the club as we start to build this club for the future. It`s a great opportunity for us to start making things happen."


My own opinion of the clubs performance this season so far worries me extremely but I take comfort in the new owners and how their approach to get success no matter what. The club is only just beginning to take off, and like every City fan, I will be watching with excitement to see who City buy in January. We all know that Money does not buy instant success but all this investment is producing a sense of excitement, that out performances on the pitch have lacked.

Let's hope it revitalises the team.

Then there's that Private jet/jumbo jet rumour...What a set up! I wonder if they've got a "Stopscoringowngoals-a-tron" on order....?

No doubt Petrov will be the No. 1 customer over the next four months!

JB don't knock it, Dunney bring out a Christmas DVD 50 of his greatest home goals. Lets hope they reduce the price of the tickets although concession time is getting nearer.

Bang goes the rumour that they were going to develop the sports facitities around Coms and do away with Carrington and place it all at Eastlands.

What, no plane?

I've heard a lot about Carrington. If he's half the left back he's made up to be then our defensive frailties could be reinforced and we can forget anything but clean sheets forever. I believe his "long throws" make Rory Delap look like as baby with "projectile vomit" -- Parents will understand!

Heh heh. Still some present from Sheikh Mancity, eh?
Johnny Baguette
all these steps are in the right direction.......all we need now is a few steps in the right direction on the field !!!

Too many of our players were grinning inanely on some of the press release photos from that gym. They should be grimacing all week after that no show at Bolton. That's old fashioned I suppose!
