    Spanish-based journo on Talksport Transfer Tavern (yes I know it's Talksport) said the same thing.
    Barca want it and Villareal are being backed into a corner, but Suarez is wary because the fringe players like Turan and Vidal got very little playing time following the lifting of the transfer ban.
    Basically there's a feeling Enrique has very little faith out side of his first 11.

    This. SInce he's stuck in Championship he may consider being back at City, working with Pep and winning tophies... Although gametime is an attractive thing as well.

    I usually buy him for City in FM 2013 and he's a perfect back-up keeper.

    Anyway, we're not seeing any englishmen or academy graduates at the club during this spanish reign.

    A couple of good articles in the press about the number of ex-Man City youth players in the Euros. I didn't realize how many there were. Also nice to hear from Jim Cassell. He did such a wonderful job at the club. I had no idea how broke the club was when he started! Talk about making something from nothing. Also good to see he still is a season ticket holder.

    You're making that up, we don't have a youth system.

    Edit: They're all copy & paste jobs from the MEN

    Along with the obligatory first comment from an obsessed, bitter rag. Those salty tears...

    Wait! Am I on the NY Yankees forum? They don't have one either.

    Saw Courtney Meppen-Walter play for Stockport at Brackley tonight. Wore the number 10 shirt playing at centre back which was quite upsetting from an OCD point of view, also got subbed at half time. He's put on a lot of weight...

    Omar Elabdellaoui is about to join Hull on loan. If he's any good we should buy him back!
