    Don’t worry Adders, Money City’s equally dodgy owners and their creative accountants won’t be forgotten (nor the gangsters that own that mob in West London).

    Eddie Howe be an absolutely silly manager. Conte is the only man if they want to progress quickly

    Great city and great fans but they will be run by a disgusting regime much like city.

    Sean. I’m no fan of the middle Eastern Emirates but they are nothing compared with Saudi Arabia. But who are we as a nation to criticise when we sell billions of pounds of deadly armaments to Saudi Arabia.
    Let’s see what development they put into Newcastle as a city and so on. There is no doubt that the investment by the Middle East into football is for PR and that includes City. But so far at City there has been a great deal of non football investment in what was a run down area.
    We will see. Steve Bruce must be clearing his desk already!

    I’m sure those poor fookers being chemical castrated, beheaded, bombed into oblivion and trapped in what can only described in slave-like conditions while dropping dead earning the equivalent of a pint of beer a day across the middle-east sleep a lot easier knowing certain areas of Manchester and Newcastle have a couple of new parks for the wee kiddies to play in.

    Not your best debate point, Adders!

    On the very same day that the prime minister hailed the collapse of the European Super League breakaway as a triumph for our moral sporting values, the Premier League was preparing to approve a fund financed by the super-rich, murderous Saudi state as a fit and proper owner for one of our great clubs.

    Without a doubt, this is the saddest day in my existance as a football fan, looking at the direction this game is (be)heading…

    I agree Sean Howe would be a silly appointment but there’s a few nonsense names on that list.

    Conte is the one imo if Newcastle can persuade him to come PL experience and a proven winner and he would attract players too.

    I’m surprised Zidane isn’t higher in the betting. His coaching abilities have often been questioned despite huge success in the CL but, purely as a name and for his pedigree, they don’t come any bigger. Conte is much more likely to turn them into winners but Zidane is the more glamorous appointment IMO.

    Re January signings, I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see them raiding Real or Barca. Someone like Vinicius Jr or Fati. They’ll certainly be looking for a statement signing early on.

    β€œSteven Gerrard is reportedly β€œintrigued” by the prospect of replacing Steve Bruce as Newcastle United manager following the Β£305million takeover of the Premier League club. The Rangers boss and former Liverpool star is one of the names linked with the hotseat amid speculation Bruce could be sacked, after Mike Ashley completed the sale of the club to a Saudi Arabia-backed consortium.” Express 8/10

    Not sure if the above is accurate and if it is it makes sense both ways?

    “Mikel Arteta has been named Premier League manager of the month for September after guiding Arsenal to three straight victories.

    The Gunners beat Norwich, Burnley and local rivals Tottenham to climb out of the relegation zone after starting the season with three defeats in a row.

    “It’s a great feeling, it means we went on a good run and won matches,” said Arteta, 39.

    Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo won the player of the month award.

    Ronaldo, 36, scored three goals in his first two league games after returning to United from Juventus.

    Arteta’s Arsenal now sit 11th in the table after drawing their last game with Brighton and he added that the award is “about the people involved, the people who work with me and how grateful I am to have them”. BBC Football 8/10

    Quite a turnaround for Arteta and predictable re Ronaldo well done to both.

    Chuky…I have no problems with your opinions but you also need to relate to real facts…I was brought up, lived and worked in the area where the Etihad is positioned, in fact worked just a long par 5 from the ground so I KNOW what has changed and without question for the better, Children’s Parks included!!!!! That is fact, it should not be treated as an illusion

    BB… you would be 100% correct in suggesting I have no real idea about how much “regeneration” your slavemasters have given to the poor downtrodden people of Manchester, and I would most sincerely hope it was more than a “couple of parks for the wee kiddies” otherwise your defence of them would be very weak indeed.
    However, my point still stands, I’m sure the “working” classes in UAE are relieved to see the results of their endeavours being spent wisely on the people of Manchester for “the common good”.

    Chuky, I am not defending anybody, what I am saying is your lack of facts.
    I am also sure the working classes of UAE did not bother about my family in a 2up and 2 down, no bathroom and outside loo.and had to live through hard times…it is all relative. That is a problem of society to day, they just do not understand what went before them. I know you do a lot of banter as well, but there are people , still alive, (just) who lived through real bad times and those memories will always be with them. keep the banter going but some of us still remember what is was like.

    BB… I don’t doubt for one minute there are parts of Manchester that have suffered, my own family have also told me stories about growing up in the East End during WWII and spending 15 years living in a prefab after the family house got bombed… and I personally didn’t exactly have a great time growing up in a single-parent environment on a council estate in E10 in the 70’s/80’s. I’m sure we can both continue to swap comments about how much “suffering” we’ve had.

    My point is very simple. If ruling families in UAE are realistic in their notion about improving their “standing” in the world, then there are a hell of a lot of things they can do a lot closer to home than plucking a city out of thin air 4000 miles away for a sports washing campaign. Sure, it’s great for the people of Manchester… but you’ll have to trust me when I say having been to the UAE more times than I care to remember for work so I’ve seen the belly of the beast in action, neither of us has suffered even remotely close to the working classes over there.

    I think everyone needs to calm their shit a bit. I mean just because you’ve got the money, doesn’t mean you’re necessarily going to flaunt it. Supposedly our owners have more money than Liverpool’s but we’re certainly not outspending them. Supposedly Barnsley’s, Fulham’s and QPR’s owners are all worth more individually than Liverpool and Arsenal put togther! Did Fulham break the bank last time they were in the PL? From memory they did the complete opposite and actually loaned a shit load of players.

    I can really see Mbappe wanting to live on the Tyne!

    Despite Ward the Wales keeper making 2 extremely horrible errors last night in their 2-2 draw with Czech the fans still chanted his name in appreciation, very nice people.
