Dictate Tévezgate Now City - Transfer List Him

Dictate Tévezgate Now City - Transfer List Him

Worldwide groans greet the latest Carlos Tévez will he, won't he exclusives. Let's get this straight and stopped off now...

Two weeks on from the end of the season, Manchester City's captain, who submitted a transfer request then withdrew it six months ago, still refuses to commit to the club he is contracted to play for by contradicting the contradictory statements that he has been making alongside his agent ad nauseam.

Cajoled, mollycoddled and the beneficiary of City's top dog status, the player continues to court sensation seeking hacks by becoming involved in very public discussions about his personal dealings within the club. No matter which way you dress it up, any player who comes out and says he deals only with the club's owner and nobody else whilst decrying the boardroom does nothing for the image of Manchester City, nor his own reputation for that matter. This weekend he has made the cardinal sin of slating the city of Manchester itself.

Regardless of the why's and the wherefore's that drive Tévez and his adviser's need to be adored in the extreme and keep moving on, whether they be financial or familial, this player is not bigger than a club that has been absolutely transformed from nosedivers to contenders in all aspects of it's operation.

That transformation has realised Champions League football and the FA Cup following the hard grafted forging of a team ethic by Roberto Mancini across 17 astonishing months.

To be in possession of the captain's armband as the club's talisman on the brink of leading the team onto the biggest European stage should be an almighty honour and something to afford respect. But you'd be hard pushed to dig up a quote whereby El Apache says he's up for it. He will miss the Community Shield showdown with united at Wembley on 7th August. City have already granted him three weeks off following the Copa America with Argentina.

There seems little point in detailing here the very latest statements attributed to Tévez. Better to list some facts that surround a player who has still not won back the full support of all City fans since that ill advised transfer request.

Manchester City hold all the aces. Tévez isn't the only under contract prolific striker out there. He isn't the only player capable of running his socks off for the cause. The Blues have more than had our money's worth. A phenomenal 53 goals across 78 League and Cup starts have taken the club to a point whereby nobody is irreplaceable. City are on the big stage now and this has become a crucial test of the club's credentials. The club's hierarchy needs to be perceived to be in control of this situation for us to move on and maintain stunning momentum.

So let's see City turn the tables having greeted every single media dalliance by Tévez and Kia Joorabachian with increased efforts to portray a happy ship.

Put him on the transfer list and let's see what he and his adviser have got. Let's see who will come in for him and deal with it. Yes or No, play on.

Then let's get on with preparing for an unprecedented 2011-2012 campaign.

City, you have got NOTHING to lose by acting now.

Its a bit rich of him to slate Manchester life when he hasn't even bothered to learn the language. People saying its because he's South American - what about Zabaletta? he's loved because he has a positive attitude. what he's said about only playing for sheik mansour is so disrespectful to us as fans. You're right - he should be transfer listed.

Good post,although he has been instrumental in citys recent success its got to a point now where enoughs enough.Citys whole season has been totally overshadowed by the "will he wont he"scenario.I personally couldnt really give a toss if he goes,yes we would miss him but hes not irreplaceable.Dont think any city fan could truthfully say any different because we all know Tevez isnt personally capable about committing to anything other than joorabachian and a big pile of dosh

Don't talk nonsense. It would half his value immediately.

We can't be standing around now. Some big big teams are coming to Eastlands this autumn and Mancio needs everyone on message and up for it. We can't afford to be wasting valuable time continuing to indulge Tevez. 2 months this weekend, the rags at Wembley. And we already know he won't be playing. And it's not like he's being forced to not lead City out that day either. - Maybe he/ Kia is trying to force his fee down?

Chelsea fan here. I don't think you lot need Tevez if he doesn't want to play for you. You can easily send him to some team in Italy or Spain and then sign a replacement since money isn't a problem.

Jorabchian's strategy is clearly one of attrition. Currently, the teams that can afford Tevez (ie barca, Real) haven't expressed an interest, and the teams that want him (Juve, AC and Inter) can't afford either the fee or his wages (although rumour has it Juve offered him a wad of cash to go to Turin). So in light of these developments, Joorabchian's strategy appears to be one of getting Tevez to mouth off as much as possible so that he alienates the fans, manager board and most importantly, Sheikh Mansour. Once he's burned his bridges, we can only assume that Jorabchian is hoping to engineer a move on the cheap. I think we should see his bluff, ie NOT transfer list him, but remind him that he's ours for the next 3 years at least. Most of the noises he's making now indicate that he would be prepared to stay, and whilst I'm fed up with the whole saga too, I don't think Carlos is the brains behind the operation. perhaps pointing out to Carlos how invaluable his mate Kia has been in helping Mark Hughes' recent career decisions would help to focus his mind?

The following was in the Guardian late last year ===> "15 December 2010 10:08PM A Brief History Of Carlos Tevez The boy's got form... Boca Juniors (2001-2004) Tevez forces his way out of the club claiming that the press intrusion in Argentina is too much for him and his family and the club aren't doing enough to support him. Public bust-up with manager also ensues. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: Two-and-a-half seasons. Corinthians (2005-2006) Tevez forces his way out of the club, going on strike, after arguments - some physical - with teammates, the head coach and the club president. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: One season. West Ham (2006-2007) Tevez almost immediately falls out with the manager and players. Storms off and threatens to go on strike after being substituted. Goes AWOL to Argentina at one point. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: One season. Manchester United (2007-2009) Tevez complains of being fatigued and overplayed in his first season. In his second, he complains of being underplayed - drama queening it every time he's taken off - managing just five goals, despite playing more minutes than the league's third top scorer Fernando Torres. Parting shot of "I'll scream in Ferguson's face when I score against them". Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: Two seasons. Manchester City (2009-????) Tevez is tired, homesick, wants to retire, takes time off to see his daughter and is caught on camera spending that time allegedly banging his mistress (the actually banging remains unphotographed), feels there's too much greed in football despite being the highest-paid player in Britain, hates football in general yet throws a wobbly every time he's taken off, wants his old life back, hates the club executives, claims that he would like to punch his young teammates and finally hands in a transfer request. Claims he loves the club and supporters, and always will. Time at club: One-and-a-half seasons so far, some of it begrudgingly. Sums it all up really......" Lets get rid eh guys?
05/06/2011 14:44:00
Pity the banging remains unphotographed, she's a bit of a hotty!
05/06/2011 14:51:00
Then again, he's not.
05/06/2011 15:00:00
Good grief. Some top posts here. City have got a job on to sort this out.
