    This is getting a bit weird now. The other week he was getting grief for shopping at Poundland, today The Mail are having a go at him for having three garages in his new house. Won't link to the article, but pretty sure no white footballers are subjected to the same scrutiny. It's all a bit sinister.

    I think we all know it goes beyond being sinister mate. The press have had it in for Raheem from day one.

    Perhaps they are trying to increase sales in dipperland.

    3 garages? Utter disgrace, charities all around the country are crying out for garages for those in need. Some of these poor children don't even have cars.
     
  6. Horrible twats basically trying to destroy his life because he left the dippers and they didn't like it.

    Doesn't excuse the S*n doing it in the summer, they could hand out free fixes along with the paper and the dippers wouldn't touch it still.

    I actually don't think this is unfair coverage.

    There you've got Beckham, Neville, Wilshere, Gerrard, Depay and Rooney, plus one which just does a load at once.

    "Footballer earning X buys expensive house for Lots of money, here's some photos to make you jealous" is a classic story that the daily mail and co run every time they get a chance.

    It might seem unfair because of the earlier article about Poundland, which I think everyone agreed was bullshit, but this is just the norm for any footballer, white or black, City or elsewhere.
