Summer of Discontent

Summer of Discontent

Summer of discontent

Well, well, well. You couldn`t make it up could you!

Whilst the embers of another disasterours season still burn brightly, the hopes, fears & aspirations of the forthcoming season stare us bleakly in the face.

Only in the City, could a corupt business man put a tender in for the chosen club, build the hopes of the thousands of beleaguered legions with the promise of a golden pond & (As Rodney Rodney once predicted), turn a silk purse into a sowes ear before we even had the chance to do so in real time & money!!.

Surely after forty odd days of " negotiating", we should have smelt a rat, but I suppose when you have been through the mill as many times as we have, you will grab hold of anything in the hope that we could maybe close the gap on such illustrious clubs as Bolton & Portsmouth.

So where do we go from here then? I suppose, back to the land of the living.

WE ARE A BIG CLUB, with huge support & proud tradition & let`s face it, will never be able to lace the boots of Man Yewnited. Look at the positives, we have retained the services of Richards, Dunne, Onouha, Isakksson, etc, the Academy is flourishing with yet more prospects worth an envious glance from other more illustrious clubs. The troubled one & the greedy one have left for "much bigger clubs" Newcastle & Portsmouth….. COME ON!! Has anything happened this close season that we did not expect

1) Pearce had to go
2) Distin wanted to go
3) Barton……… work that one out for yourself!!

Sven Goran Eriksson, a man with an unprecedented record at club level & the most successful English manager in terms of percentage ratios is begging for the job & with the additional level of money from Television flooding through the doors, plus the money from the lovely Mr Barton, surely the option of trusting such pedigree to wisely nurture the talent we have & shrewdly invest in the transfer market, is much sounder that the aforementioned & whether you like it or not, the current owner has a vested and valid interest in the future of our football club.

For once, we need to move quickly & if we do, we could just retain the identity & integrity of the best football club in the land.

This is an incredibly important time for City, Martin. There is no doubt about that. I admire your enthusiasm and let's hope we get some kind of a rapid take off any day now. The consequences, such as losing the players you've named to the clubs who are waiting to see what will finally happen at City this summer do not bear thinking about! Keep the faith.

Latest from Bangkok is Frank has been ordered back to Thailand to face criminal charges or face arrest which will probably happen anyway. Can we move on to reality now please City Board?

Mr Wardle apparently has interviewed potential managers for the job, but there are no comments anywhere, MEN insist that the takeover is still on, but I bet the £50 million promised is a little lower. The Board must make a decision by Friday, they cannot afford to leave it any longer to appoint a manager. The question is who, Some Managers will only come if there is lots of money to spend.

Not *****ing Warnock ...... or Stachan or Souness or Coleman. If we must recruit lower profile we must learn from the Pearce mistake and recruit the best candidate available. What we do have is the only Premiership vacancy. That alone should attract good calibre foreiagn managers as I don't see any of the usual suspects as capable.

A club of your pedigree deserves to be treated a lot better by all concerned. Hopefully you will have a forward thinking Chairman and Manager in place before long!
