Der Bomber Slams Tevez

Der Bomber Slams Tevez

Blues striker legend Uwe Rösler is appalled at the actions of Carlos Tevez and has urged Roberto Mancini to strip 'Joorabchians' puppet' of the City captaincy...

The courageous Rösler in an interview with BBC GMR made his viewpoint more than clear:

'City supporters idolise Tevez because of the way he is playing and the way he is leading by example on the field. But we have seen the other side when he is not living up to his responsibility as club captain off the field. That is disappointing and difficult to understand. I would take the captaincy away from him, 100%.'

The man whose Dad bombed the swamp is in line with the vast majority of City fans who will not have a problem with Tevez being sold, and sold quickly:

'I like players who want to play for the manager. I would let him go as long as the price is right. City have to get the money back for him. They are fortunately in a very good position regarding the owners and replacing him.'

Planet Blue knows that the longer that Tevezgate drags on and the more Joorabchian telephones various slavvering hacks with his latest anti-City soundbites, the greater the risk of this saga destabilising a terrifically promising season.

However, Uwe underlined the importance of maintaining a squad who are up for the cause:

'In the long term it is important that every player is totally committed to City.'

Uwe is right, JB. Gary Owen said last night in his MEN column, in days gone by City has been beholden to their quality players - Kinkladze to name but one, but this is not the case now. With Dzeko apparently making move noises, and I really would like Olic, we can onwards and upwards quickly and let someone else get their 18 months out of Tevez. Whatever that clown Joorabchian says is prefabricated, he used to sell cars for god's sake. If Tevez says City didn't deliver their promises and it has nothing to do with money, we must assume that it is because we didn't qualify for the Champions League. Tevez should not forget that we let him go home last February and whilst he was missing we dropped 4 winnable points and got knocked out of the FA Cup, so he contributed to that whilst the Cluib looked after him.

Heh... I have to say i'm enjoying this...You think Sir Alex would be stupid enough to let go of someone who was really worth all that money? He was definately smart enough to get him on loan for 2 years. It was our pleasure letting him go... He's a big cry-baby with confidence and inferiority complex issues... Enjoy him! He's all yours!

alexpant Im not even a Manc fan but its not smart when your own Manc players wish to leave cause they dont believe ur owners or manager are willing to keep qaulity players... ala Tevez and Ronaldo.... Next Rooney. I suppose u can then by Pav from Spurs.... Sad news this Tevez debate as I firmly believe he is your best player and 110% deserves the captains arm band. Player power wins again im afraid..

Alexpant, why did your club try so desparately to hang on to Tevez then? It's well documented that they tried to find a way of reducing the price they'd agreed with Joorabchian and ultimately were prepared to stump up the whole fee. Sorry pal, but you clearly did want Tevez to stay, it was your perilous financial position that eventually resulted in him leaving.

Stunning how these rags deliriously and deludely see Taggart as some kind of mystic all seeing all knowing wizard. We've had 39 goals in 53 starts out of Tevez. And there you were shrieking Argentina Argentina.

(apart from a double derby win under sir sven), Onwards and upwards

Fergie said publically United laid out a 25 mil bid (the same we paid for him) if I am not mistaken, Tevez was just deadset on going so United had no choice. Doesn't really sound like "Fergie let him go" to me.
