Manchester City Seek Scolari - Hacks At It Again!

Google language translator


According to Sunday 15th February 2009 edition of the News of the World, Manchester City FC are seeking the services Luiz Felipe Scolari.

The tabloid headlined the following...

Manchester City plan to use Luiz Felipe Scolari and the Brazil connection to land Kaka.

Vital MC says...

Mark Hughes is under contract and so how on earth can Scolari land Kaka?

NOTW continues...

City chiefs know Scolari will spend the next six months in England learning the language properly and studying the English game while his son Fabricio finishes the school term.

That leaves Scolari in pole position to replace Mark Hughes at Eastlands and act as the perfect bait to lure Kaka from AC Milan.


Vital Man City says...

The first paragraph sounds believable, however on the second.

Scolari did an average job whilst managing Chelsea and if I was to be honest, he would have probably come up with the goods if only he had been given the time. But now the hacks have the knives out yet again.

I don't think it takes a genius to work out that Sparky's future at Eastlands is numbered. Whether he goes tomorrow, next week, next month or at the end of the season, ADUG, in my opinion has his cards marked.

However, what if, and only if Scolari was appointed. How long would it take before the tabloids began to sharpen their pencils and began to write that the Brazilian was not up to the job? I would suggest after City's first defeat.

City are in a no win situation. There are journalists out there who will write what ever they can to make their story onto the back pages. Yes, they have a living to make, but Mark Hughes and Co have a job to do.

In short, my suggestion is this. Can all the hacks disappear under the rock they crawled out of and leave our wonderful club alone? Cheers.

Funnily enough, I've just written a piece about our treatment at the hands of the press! I'm just amazed the club is not doing anything about it.

We could buy the entire Brazillian squad and they'd struggle away at Brighton let alone at Stoke or WBA. Unless Scolari could convince them that yes, away at Middlesboro' is an unusual Copa America tie I don't think they'd be any more effective than the current shower.

No No not sign him.I am afraid ther are certain people only good for certain places.Scolari is not good for EPL.He will be make your team a mini Brazil.Yes you may have Kaka but you will also have Adriano and even Carlos or other 30 plus dead woods.He doesn't know anyone except Brazil or Portugal or rather I should say he doesn't want

Although #I did not see the match yesterday all the reports and the views on this site have made it quite obvious we were sh**e. I really don't know what to write as I am so pi**ed off, we are no better now than we were last season but we have spent 100m+. We have really good players in all positions but still play crap. The reason must be down to the manager. The excuses have been the same all season yet now the majority of the team are ones he has brought in. I just don't see why when we are playing the bottom clubs, be it home or away, we still play with one up front, and then we don't change it until its too late. I don't agree with hiring and firing managers every two minutes but as I see it we are just no better off on the pitch, perhaps behind the scenes it is another story. Getting back to the story I'd have Big Phil tommorow because I'd rather have a Brazilian influence than a Welsh one, no offence. As for the hacks who make all this **** up, F*CK 'EM!!! A very sad and disillusioned Roman.

Although i agree that scolari would do a better than hughes (wouldnt be hard to do) i am worried about the turmoil he cause at chelsea, poor results and his "cant be bothered" attitude to the chelsea job. I would beg mourinho in the summer, or get mancini, rykard or moyes in now. Building for next season early. If hughes stays, im prepared to write of this season completely. At this rate id be happy to finish 10th-12th.... or even survive relegation. This is the most frustrating season i have ever known at city. The quality we have is amazing and we are crap week in, week out. If jo scores 10 goals for everton, then hughes should get sacked for that alone.

Oh surprise, a manager loses his job and we're linked with him by some lazy barley literate tabloid hack. Probably sent the story in from the pub via his Blackberry. Can't wait for the inevitable headlines linking us to the return of Sven once he is booted out by Mexico. Trouble is some City fans would probably welcome that!

Why would we want to replace a manager "who is having trouble motivating a team" with a manager who lost his job "because he could not motivate a team"
