Man City Exposed As Liars


The Sun has published an exclusive in which they expose MCFC as having stabbed Mark Hughes in the back. Plus, CEO, Garry Cook apparently lied during Monday's press conference.

To be honest I don't know what to make of this. I appreciate the author, Neil CUSTIS will have his sources and before going to print, the Sports Editor from the Sun would have given the go-ahead, so perhaps there might be some substance to this story.

When tabloids have published scandalous articles in the past quite often individuals and companies concerned have gone to the courts for defamation of character, (or worse as the case maybe) therefore I appreciate I am treading on very thin ice here.

When complaints are made and well before any legal action is taken, the respective tabloids remove articles, or offer some sort of apology when exposed, therefore I have taken the Suns article in its entirety and published it via our forums, just in case they remove it. I appreciate we are entering new territory here but until there is a stated case in law governing material taken and published via internet chat forums, with links to the original source, then I am prepared to stand up and be counted.

Due to copyright laws I am not going to publish the story via this article, but instead add a link to a forum thread. There you can read the Sun's story and add your comments as you see fit.

Dirty, dirty little lying club. Should be ashamed of yourselves.

I have to admit, that on Saturday I was annoyed at the way they did the dirty deed on Sparky, but to be honest aswell, we all moaned about the defence and we could all see the problems. If it is your club and you just spent a quarter of a billions pounds, then it is your priviledge to choose who you like to run your club. Cook acknowledged yesterday evening with the statement, that they regretted the leak about the story to the press on the morning of the game. My Thanks go to Sheikh Khaldoon Al Mubarak for seeing Hughes in Person rather than any other method, thats the sign of a man with honour. It matter not whether or not City lied,. because it is history and makes no difference one way or the other. I wish Mark Hughes and his team a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope that they will soon be back in football.

Stand up TergeHauge - you're the first football fan i've ever read who believes what they read in 'The Sun'

I agree with buzz lightyear. Which club hasnt made mistakes? How do you sack someone in a nice way? Hughes was done wrong, but he should have went in may. I actually think this is the perfect time to bring mancini in. I wasnt happy with cooks conduct over the kaka deal and hes overly friendly with the players. On the commercial side i think hes done a brilliant job. City have been marketed better than any team in the premiership in the last year. As a fan ive never felt so involved in the club. Cook needs PR training or he will be replaced in the summer. He making himself look stupid = man city looks stupid.

Mancini will get more latitude than Sparky simply because he is the owners choice! Iím a Spurs fan and last Wednesday I was delighted to win 3-0 and yet very surprised, your 4-3-3 doesnít seem to work. We have witnessed farcical management changes (Jol etc) down here and itís not pretty but Sparky has been touted as lightweight in the upper echelons of Top club management and talk of his demise has surrounded the club for over a year now so why is this a surprise? The big question surely is, is Roberto Mancini the one?
michael.thfc
BTW your man Cook looked decidedly uncool yesterday Shake-ya-Booty should clear him out in my view!
michael.thfc
Im not impressed with ian wrights article in the sun slagging of city. Has he forgotten his son is a team mate of adebayor, robinho and lescot, has he forgotten city gave swp a chance sfter nottingham forest released him as kid. Ians normaily having a go at city on talksport when he used to be on the radio. For his sons sake and the moral of the club, he should keep his mouth shut.

Not that I want to add too much fuel to this fire, but here's a quote from an article last summer just after Barry signed for you: .... <> I wonder how he reacted to the sacking? I was never a huge fan of Hughes, but this whole situation casts Man City in a poor light. To be honest, after the Richard Dunne reaction and now this, I'd think that this guy Cook is on borrowed time with your fans....
gmvillan
Barry also revealed he sought assurances from City's owners that boss Mark Hughes's future was not in doubt. He said: 'I've seen it before. Players join clubs then two months later the manager is gone and their future is uncertain. 'That was the last thing I wanted to happen here.'
gmvillan
Well i guess barry and his team mates should have performed better and hughes would still be city manager. Barry and co are employed by manchester city fc, NOT mark hughes Ltd.
