    Every transfer between cat 1 clubs goes through an investigation process iirc. Perhaps the Independent could point out how many of those other cat 1 clubs have faced the same investigation.

    Great post, sums up exactly how City are viewed and manhandled by the English media. There is every chance what you predict will come to fruition with our academy and the class of 92 will fade year by year

    That Indy article is written by a blue
     
  5. Yes, when he was still reading English at Oxford, Jack used to publish a blog entitled The Lonesome Death of Roy Carroll, which was the best City blog of the time. The last update was just over 6 years ago: http://tldorc.blogspot.ru/ - presumably finals and then his new career intervened after that.

    To be fair, the headline and sub-heading (which won't be his work) make much more of a point of the investigation than the article does. He doesn't give it much emphasis at all, IMO.

    This seems to be the oddest thing that it's even been mentioned as an investigation.

    Sign player => review that proper procedures have been followed.

    If it's automatically triggered, and there is no fault found, then it's not even news.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out this was someone at the dippers trying to point attention away from their own tapping up case of last week.

    I remember reading that blog.

    Best City content around from memory. Good to hear he's been able to make a career out it!
