Always have a DAB Radio on GMR whilst I am at the match. Ian Cheeseman can be useful for bits of information as the game progresses such as the correct info on offsides and imminent substitutions etc.
On Sunday, Cheeseman clearly said that City are still paying part of his wages so perhaps there is some truth in the OP's post!
Incidentally, Nigel Gleghorn (He of stand in Goalkeeping and away day goal scoring only fame) and Cheeseman's commentary sidekick, is soon to leave GMR to coach our under 14's.
As most people know who use DAB, there is a delay behind live action and perhaps this can explain the Adebayor comment. They also mentioned potentially signing some skinny kid to replace Joe Hart call Swift!
