'If It's Football, It's Vital'

SWP To Barcelona It Says Here



File under 'are you sure about that..?' Hacks at The Sun have suggested that the City winger is on the Catalan giant's radar but there is apparantly a contract issue with City...

It transpires that Ian Wright is a regular columnist for the news international multi million seller and has stated his dissatisfaction at SWP's contract situation with The Blues.

Wright alledged:

'Ever since Cook and Marwood came to the club they seem to be only interested in looking after players who are not really Man City people. Shaun is City through and through, but he has to feel appreciated.'

A clear dig at City CEO Garry Cook and City Football Administrator Brian Marwood. Cook is walking a fine line with a section of City fans as it stands and would do well to not cold shoulder our treasured MCFC Academy graduates.

There is of course never any smoke without fire and the merest suggestion of an unsettled SWP is enough to concern any diehard Blue. Ever since he returned to Manchester City, the player has been the heartbeat of the squad on many occasions despite recent injury and erratic form.

The City legend still has a few years to run on his current contract and is reported to be attempting to extend it.

Barcelona by Monday? Definitely maybe, but our Premier League rivals will be put on alert should the situation drag on.

More on this uncomfortable revelation through the weekend...

Another story JB to unsettle City players - was wondering who'd be the next target now that Robinho's gone.

The majority of hacks still have their anti-City agenda, TBF. Yet this coming from Ian Wright, no matter how unsavoury it is to do it via a newspaper is certainly unsettling.
Johnny Baguette
I think it's pretty apparent to everybody now, our media are retarded. This is about as BS a concept as you could get. SWP is a fantastic player, but where would he fit in at Barca? Oh, and don't listen to Ian Wright, as much of an Arsenal legend that he is, and he definitely is, as a pundit/hack, he's a right ******** cock.

SWP cannot cross if his life depended on it!

The last time Wrighty interferred with Shaunys football career, it cost him his england place and he was warming a bench for most of the two years away.
Buzz Lightyear
Well, if they want to swap him for Lionel Messi, I say go for it. ;)

If fit, SWP is usually in our starting eleven, so why would we sell him. All we need from Barca is that little playmaker from Argentina.

Shaun of the Shed to Barca? Now that would be a turn up!
merlin
the root of this problem is cock and marewood - get rid of these 2 *********s and we will be ok

SWP is unsettled because hes been under performing since last season for me. City will always be linked with top right wingers. Look how bellamy saw of robinho and made petrov switch opposite flanks. How many city fans would have guessed this in the begining of the season. If cook is tries to sign robben, ribery, johnson, krasic etc - who are better than swp. Thats his job!
Super City Slicker
It's also worth noting in fairness that Garry Cook was at City before SWP returned.
Johnny Baguette
Even as a Utd fan I dont wanna see him leave Premiership - I like his pace and style of play - shame on Mancini if he lets him go......
