Richards To The Gooners Or united?

Richards To The Gooners Or united?

Very strange that the reliable, well researched story journalists from The Daily Mirror reported last week that Taggart was preparing a 20 million January bid for Micah Richards.

Hard to believe when firstly, united only have a budget of this amount for any entire season and they certainly need more than one player to add to their ageing squad.

Or perhaps Gary Chuckle Brother is finished and they want a top notch right back. Micah certainly is that.

I wonder however, why would Micah want to sign a long term contract with them when Taggart and many of his players are on their last legs. Also little Citeh have already beaten three different united sides this season. So it seems this is idle talk from the Mirror and has little substance.

The Mirror are saying today Micah Richards is now off to Arsenal! Really, perhaps they can explain now why he is not going to very Old Trafford...

You can always tell when we are doing well.
Wait for it, Barcelona bid 20 million for Elano, will follow.

Micah when younger, was an Arsenal fan. So possibly, if the Gunners in five years have 30 million we may trade. Having said that, Lee Dixon played more than 500 games for the Gooners and it was no secret that he was a fanatical City fan who would have loved to have played for us. He didn`t, and possibly Micah won't ever play for them.

The Mirror do know one thing and that is that City are on the up big style and they cannot cope with it. Heaven help us when we start winning trophies!

Meanwhile, every City player is now a target for other clubs, simply because they are quality young players. Shame Giggs and Scholes were not a bit younger as we can now easily afford to buy them, but unfortunately they are getting on a bit now, and Sven doesn`t like old stagers.

With united finding themselves in so much debt they could do with some serious cash so perhaps they will off load Rooney during the January transfer window.

Rooney to CITY is unlikely. There again Ricky Hatton and he are best mates, so you never know.

But back to the other Mirror comment: Micah to join united, no chance. To Arsenal possibly in a few years time.

Please come to Liverpool! Once Carra retires, imagine Richards and Agger at the heart of Liverpool's defence!

He won't go to the Gooners they don't sign English players !!!

City have a potentially world class player in their team, and you know it. The big clubs will come calling eventually, though I'm not sure Wenger will be willing to spend so much money. I would love that though, Micash has been very impressive so far this season.

"Lee Dixon played more than 500 games for the Gooners and it was no secret that he was a fanatical City fan who would have loved to have played for us.

Well if reports are true that he doesnt want to sign a contract because he wants to go to Arsenal, then i dont see you having a real chance of keeping him. Even less of a chance of you holding us to ransom over him if these reports are true.

Be a tough player to replace and how much money would be reasonable price?

Gunnerkid107, there is no report of Richards refusing to sign a contract, there is a discussion regarding a release clause, but SGE says that this can be sorted. According to the mirror (if you can believe what they write) reports that he is ready to sign. Besides you have an abudance of very good defenders. I think you need a goalkeeper like we do, but richards to Arsenal will not happen for years sorry.

I see Micah has rubbished all these reports and is very close to signing a new contract WITHOUT RELEASE clauses. Anyone who buys that rubbish Daily Mirror that calls itself a newspaper cannot call themselves a true City fan

...and alphie he wants the armband.

I know we are singing the praises of Elano at the moment and his goals have been a delight to watch, but the entire team needs a mention. The fact that they have taken to this very easy on the eye football. The tireless work of Mpenza, numerous defensive clearances from corners. I just feel they have more time and space and are enjoying playing together. Corluka as Micah says he his calm, but besides that he never seems to panic. Garrido just gets on with the job. I bet Pearce wishes that last season he had this seasons Hamann. Petrov is getting better and Stevie Ireland against Boro was very unlucky to score. Not the best game we have played, but by Christmas we should gel.
