Exclusivo. Tevez envió un certificado medico al Manchester City en el que explica que no está en condiciones de regresar.

Roughly translated...

"Exclusive. Tevez sent a medical certificate to Manchester City in which he explains that he is unable to return."

What ever it is it didn't stop him playing golf with his mates yesterday. ( according to the times )

He just seems to be swimming faster and faster to the deep water...

Tomorrow marks the start of an incredible run of matches for City. We've had it easy so far and though we've played brilliantly, I look at the 5 point lead a bit like the staggered start in the 200m.

In one months time, we'll get a true reflection of how good we are because here's our upcoming matches: 8 in 30 days. (PS If Mancini's reading, that's closer to one every 4 days as opposed to his oft-quoted "every 3 days"!):-

19th Nov - Newcastle (H)
22nd Nov - Napoli (A)
27th Nov - Liverpool (A)
29th Nov - Arsenal (A) - Carling Cup
3rd Dec - Norwich (H)
7th Dec - Bayern Munich (H)
12th Dec - Chelsea (A)
18th Dec - Arsenal (H)

I can only admire how you maintain this delusion that ManCity are involved in competitive sport.

He'll be too busy counting his money to read posts on a DVD forum.

I can only admire how you think that football isn't all about big business and has been for some time

As much as any Premier League manager, he's certainly earned it this year.

I'll let others comment, and Citysmith tell us how this is all normal.

Quote:
While some clubs, most prominently Arsenal, complain that City's owner-spending is hyper-inflating wages and distorting football, City point out that they have broken no rules – so far at least – and in fact should be credited for investing fortunes in England, and in economically blighted east Manchester, at a time of economic meltdown here and in Europe

I couldn't give a **** what spin the club put on it. It manages to neglect to mention how far your wage bill exceeds your turnover for starters. Funny that.

But you were interested enough to post in this thread and ask me personally for an opinion on the financial affairs of the team that I support. When I point you in the direction of the official club site you tell me that you couldn’t give a '****' what the club says. You know that I won't be too far from the clubs line

Hernster, I hope that City beat you tomorrow but then your club has a great rest of the season, always loved away trips to Newcastle

I'm more interested in your usual "this is all normal it's what all the other clubs do", Man City are great for football twaddle.

Out of our next three games, I will be happy with four points. But we'll still be in a healthy league position if we lose all three.

If, as a 'club', you are having to make significant changes to your operation (such as not making losses which exceed 100% of total revenue) to meet "fair play" regulations then what, I wonder, does that say about the current degree of fairness in the operation of the 'club'?

That's a rhetorical question by the way.
