Pop Goes The Weasel?

Pop Goes The Weasel?

Tevezgate is back on the sporting agenda with the rebel without a pause now back in the city he hates. Save for a couple of pocketed hacks, he looks increasingly isolated...

Any moment now we'll be hearing as to what extent Carlos Tevez's return to training at Carrington reached today. Be it back with the senior squad, alone, or with the youth players, the craparazzi up in the trees will be sending the images in to The Street of Shame.

Maybe his efforts will eclipse the half an hour he put in back in August once he had completed avoiding an entire pre-season. That extended summer break was yet another extraordinary concession that Manchester City afforded a player whom the club have bent over backwards to accomodate. By his own admission, the protracted absence left him in poor physical condition.

To collective disbelief across English football, Tevez and his much loved career guru have decided to come out fighting demanding apologies and threatening to 'fight all the way' (copyright The News International City Appreciation Society) in reaction to the club statement yesterday that confirmed: 'there is a case for Carlos Tevez to answer of alleged breaches of contract.'

Clearly cornered, it could well be that this is Tevez's final throw of the dice knowing that his adviser's pisspoor hastily released misunderstanding statement the morning after Tevez went to Sky Sports hacks alone declaring 'I didn't feel right so I didn't play' has fallen on deaf ears.

With the evidence stacked against him, no player or coach prepared to side with him and found guilty of refusing to play against Bayern Munich, Tevez is to face a club disciplinary hearing, preferably before the coming weekend.

The striker (sic) maintained post Munich that he still has a connection with City fans. Alright then, is it too much to ask that Mancio benches him for The Villa game on Saturday and invites him to come on in the closing stages should the result already be in the bag...?

Another Misunderstanding...?

The MUEN.... "Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was conspicuous by his absence at the club's training ground on Thursday morning. The Argentina international is due to attend the Carrington complex today after serving a two-week suspension for allegedly refusing to play in the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich. Manager Roberto Mancini cycled into work just after 10am in front of a dozen or so assembled camera crews and photographers. The rest of the first-team squad reported in plenty of time for their 11am training session. There was no sign of Tevez, but it is understood he was scheduled to have an early-afternoon fitness session at Carrington and was not required to attend in the morning. "

JB, I can't see RM putting him on a park bench let alone the heralded padded seats at the Etihad. Tevez was clearly overweight when he came back. That is his own personal discipline. It shows how far he has fallen from grace in the eyes of fans that truly adored him, loved his commitment and enjoyed (and sometimes endured) what he brought to Manchester City. I still think this is a case where the real influences do not lie in and around a football fieldbut in the back seat of a Kia!

Tevez being bigger than the manager was the problem in the first place Salty, maybe if he hadn't been chowing down on Mars bars all summer he wouldn't be bigger than him and this whole saga may have been avoided.

With this defence he appears to be as thick as his permanently open gob suggests. An exemplary knuckle dragger and apotheosis of the modern day 'footblah'.
