    Haaland isn't going to United ffs. It wasn't that long ago that his Dad, his agent, was suing them.

    King of the Kippax

    I wonder if there's people either full collections of the old fanzines? It would be fascinating for them to be digitised and preserved in some way

    There's a story about the takeover that came from, I think, David Conn and if this is true then I can make a reasonable guess. Essentially the story was that Abu Dhabi as an administration was not really prepared for the magnitude of the response to the takeover of Man City. One of the six...

    Yeah I can see that but it's a mischaracterisation of Abu Dhabi. Nations are we understand them did not exist in the region when the oil money started pouring in. There were no schools outside of the mosques, there wasn't a hospital in Abu Dhabi until the 1960s - instead relying on a Christian...

    We know a bit about his early life. We sort of have to look at his Dad really, Sheikh Zayed who founded the UAE and put it on the road to modernity and his value. As you would expect, the man is held in such reverence that separating the myth and legend of Zayed is somewhat hard to come by but...

    McGeehan is correct that Khaldoon is considered one of the top executives in the country but the conclusions that he has drawn from that are spurious. Sheikh Mansour and Khaldoon have obviously been well acquainted with each other for years and there's no reason that asking a well respected...

    We are not very good at this sportwashing thing are we?

    Man City is one of the victims of the change that social media has made to society in recent years. Or perhaps it never changed but has just become much more popularised? I don't know if I'm looking back on the world with nostalgia but things used to be different. The big problem now is that...

    Levy was probably sat desperate for us to call. He's all exhaust and no torque. Reminds me of these tossers

    It's Quiet Thread 15 - Txiki Blinders

    It's not as desperate as we make out. The problem is that we day that Zinchenko isn't a left back so really we don't have any and are playing make shift. But the lad has played there now longer than he's played anywhere else on his career.

    Our Geo-IP provider is a bit naff at the moment. It's more likely in Altrincham

    Lee, Bell and Summerbee to be honoured with statues

    I suppose everybody has a criteria for what they think is worthy of a statue but here's what I reckon: Success. For a club that has been around for 130 years give or take, then you need to have won trophies and medals and be an important squad member who contributed to these. Longevity. You...

    Lee, Bell and Summerbee to be honoured with statues

    Worth pointing out that even with these three added, we'll still have less statues than the rags
