Desperate Scousers In For SWP?



Lowly Liverpool, currently basking in the afterglow off their one nil win at Bolton Wanderers are reported to be weighing up a cut price bid gfor Shaun Wright-Phillips...

And by cut-price we mean that Wrighty is in the final year of his second City contract.

Every rags favourite rag, the dreadful Daily Mirror reckons SWP is open to a move to Roy Hodgson's essentially rubbish team and many Blues will see at as not unexpected but a great pity if Shaunie goes.

Aside of the occasional hysterical outbursts from his dad Ian Wright, the City and England winger has maintained his wish to fight for a place in Roberto Mancini's plans, yet surely would be the first to admit that when that chance has come, to date he's not fulfilled the rich promise his talent and fighting spirit deserve.

That said, VMC would love nothing better than to see an on form Wrighty burst into life this week and stake a claim in the starting XI against the rags next Wednesday night.

Should City sell SWP to Liverpool? Give us a shout both here and in the VMC City Chat Forum.

I would say sell him and I have always be a big Shauny fan. Two reasons- one is that the lifetime loyalty thing doesn't really apply as he left us for Chelsea before coming back. And secondly, and this pains me to say... he just isn't good anymore. He has flashes still but most of the time it is painfully clear he is not a top player anymore. Liverpool have already signed one has-been, the "coup of the summer" Joe Cole and while Shauny isn't as bad as Cole yet, I can't see any direction but down for him so it may be time to cash in while we can.

Listen guys, he's been with us 10 years on and off and he still runs into cul-de-sacs and hits the first defender with his crosses. Contrast this with Silva and Johnson and the chances they set up. His attitude was summed up when he missed the team's pre-match walk once and simply said - I'll take the fine. Enough said. He's played some great matches against Stretford though I have to say that.
pedmachine
have to agree, time for him & us to move on - sweep never really regained his sparkle after going to Chelski. I'll always be one of his biggest fans and he'll go down in history as one of the great blues!

SWP Does need to move on now, There is a thing of to much competetion and i feel this is the case at City, swp, santa, jo, barry, lescott and maybe bridge should all be sold in january while Bellamy should be brought back to form a sensational partnership with tev silva and aj then with the money we get for selling them players invest in a world class striker and centre back, then surely the youth players could take up any slack through injuries etc..

Wow, so this is what success does to people then. I mean not so much success yet actually rather money perhaps. Taking the ***** out of a liverpool team down on their luck, calling them 'lowly liverpool', 'desperate scousers' and 'roy hodgson's essentially rubbish team'. If I remember correctly it wasn't that long ago that city were pretty much an 'essentially rubbish team' consistently in liverpool's current position (or worse). I'm sure man city fans then didn't appreciate being called rubbish for supporting their club which at the time was not blessed with natural fortune or luck. I would understand such comments if it was united we're talking about, you lot being rivals and all, but it isn't. Perhaps you've forgotten bluey armstrong what your team was like before a couple of years ago? Or maybe you're just a glory hunter who's just started following city when the slightest chance of winning anything appeared at eastlands? Either way I do hope the rest of your fans aren't the same types of bigots you seem to be. (p.s. i'm not even a pool fan)

Well Laneno, you're clearly not a Pool fan, because several of my Red Scouse supporters are nearing the razor blade and bath tub stage. They all agree that their team is woeful, their manager inept and their team going nowhere. Of course we City fans are relieved that we only have (at the moment) Chelse, Arseanal, The Rags, Tottenham and Villa to deal with in our pursuit of the holy top-4 place, but we're not trying to rub anything in - Liverpool at the moment are a complete shambles. I must confess that i do take some satisfaction in seeing a club with alleged global support being in the doldrums, as it fills me with hope that the mighty rags of Salford might soon follow them into oblivian. Even someone as humourless as yourself must ocassionally step down from your soapbox for long enough to realise that there is no malicious intent or bigotry in this article - we're merely engaging in a bit of gallows humour with our red scouse pals!
fifthcolumnblue
P.S. Laneno - our team was generally rubbish in the past, but nobody (even most rags) ever called our fans rubbish, so wash your mouth out!
fifthcolumnblue
Fifthcolumnblue, I didn't call your fans rubbish, and didn't refer to anyone calling your fans rubbish. What I was saying was I'm sure that you (or anyone else supporting a not so strong team) would not feel too happy at someone calling you rubbish for sticking to and supporting such a team. So don't try and personally attack me to divert attention from what I was saying (it won't work) and don't tell me to wash my mouth out cos Ive said nothing wrong. I have eyes, I know how ***** liverpool have been and being a spurs fan whose team finally got into the CL mainly because of pool's demise, I too am not too sad to see them where they are. Calling me 'humourless' because I point out how pompous and condescending this article sounds like to a neutral outsider is laughable (I certainly wouldn't call this article malicious, I mean there's only so many words in the whole thing, you seem to have taken my comment a little too heavily). Theres a difference between banter and bigotry, and I'm sure if you asked your 'red scouse pals' how they find this article they'll go with the latter. My initial comment was tongue in cheek to a certain degree (as in the way I started) and theres no issue here anyway even if the article is insulting, I personally don't give a ***** about pool and even if I did there are more worse off things I could get *****ed at. But the way you've answered so heatedly and defensively to what I said probably goes to show who the one with the lack of humour is.
laneno14
laneno to be honest mate it is pretty true what they are saying in the article and their posts, liverpool arn't really going anywhere and watching your performances against blackburn and bolton you are pretty god damn shocking at the moment. And FCB ' you're clearly not a Pool fan, because several of my Red Scouse supporters are nearing the razor blade and bath tub stage' I thought that was god damn hilarious for some reason! And im also pleased that i see you mention villa in the race for the top four, nice compliment although myself i dont think we are my friend, it's a season to rebuild and gel under houlliers new play and players to come in at jan.
P.Avfc
laneno, i apoligise as i forgot you were a spurs fan and the wording of my article is pointing out that you are a scouse. Sorry

Shaun should sign for MANCHESTER UNITED in January. the perfect way for him to resurrect his career with the most committed honourable supporters in the world behind him who will help to make him a superstar. FACT.
Nobby Allcock
oh yes and look at the state of aston villa. stephen Ireland you bottled your chance to be a LEGEND under Sir Alex and you cant even hold down a place!
Nobby Allcock
Look at the state of aston villa? Man utd are a laughing stock at the moment, giving a useless overated pig a 250 grand a week contract because he demanded it your nothing but a joke.
P.Avfc
Ireland could have come to us and been taken care of. Sir Alex would have put an arm around his shoulder and sorted him out. but he went to a team treading water. It takes a GENIUS to create a team and the greatest manager of all time at the greatest club of all time is building another DYNASTY. Wayne never wanted to leave either. it was all anothermasterstroke directed by Fergie.
Nobby Allcock
Nobby your clueless about football zip it. Ferguson just like you rivals has built most of his team with money but yet you accuse them of doing just what you have done. Ireland is a good player but he needs to work for the team more and if he doesn't for us you are welcome to him. What has ferguson done to many others careers like carrick, owen, anderson, obertan oh yeah sent them down the drain.
