  1. Re: French Ligue 1 & 2 (Risers Edition) Think a +1 this time around is more likely. Stated above why I don't think any Lille player' date=' aside from Rami who's been a fixture in Blanc's national team, should go above 90 this time round, although SM could think differently. 90 is a definite though, said above that I think he's been better than Hazard this season. It's possible, but I don't think it's more than 50/50 chance. He's already the only 89-rated player in a mid-table French team unlikely to qualify for Europe. I've got no doubt that his goalscoring record will get him 90 somewhere down the line, but not sure whether it'll be now. All in the quote for you. Quite a few of them have already been covered in my previous post though.

  2. Re: English Championship 106 - Transfer/Gossip thread Cherries Record Seventh Straight Victory Cheltenham Town0-2AFC Bournemouth Attendence:4,782 Location:Whaddon Park (15,034) Referee:Pedro Proen Hammill Gets His First Goal Under Duffy If you asked Cherries Fans a month ago where they would have predicted themselves come this time of the season many would have said "hopefully 18th" or maybe a little better, but its all changed with the cherries finding themselves 6th inside the play off spots but only by the amount of goals scored however it is a massive step forward by the south coast club with the recent form being more down to luck than anything. Bournemouth Traveled to Cheltenham hoping to break down the home teams seven game unbeaten streak in the leauge whilst defending there own 6 game winning run. The game started off rather cagey with both teams picking up a yellow card a peice in the opening 10 minutes along with Nolan And Hammill being convicted by the portugese ref. Cheltenham then took home advantage and enjoyed much of the play with Danny Murphy , Kenny Miller and Paul Robinson Testing the Debut Cherries Keeper Stefano Sorrentino however Cheltenham where just unable to beat the confident italian keeper. Just Before Half time the cherries must have been thinking about the managers half time team talk as the south coast club finally swung into action With Jara And Curci making commited challenges to win importent interceptions just before the break. After the interval the poor preformance by the cherries in the first half was seemed to be forgotten with the two teamss not creating any chances until te 59th minute when the quality of Zak Knight was able to give a cheeky give a go with another Town midfielder carving throught the Cherries Defence but unable to put the resulting shot away. Bournemouth fans seemed to be resigned to a draw or worse untill the 62nd Minute Adam Hammill Made the most of a decent through ball and rounded the keeper finishing from an acute angle to the joy of the traveling support and his manager from nowhere Bournemouth look the lead although it looked unlikely that they would hold on. However after Hammill's very sweet finish bournemouth again picked up there game and this time for a good period of time sustaining a postive level of possesion which stuck with the cherries for the rest of the game alowing them to dictate play for the remainder which was helped along by the inform Japanese Forward Morimoto who scored his 5th goal in 6 games since joining in the 83rd minute finding a yard on the chasing defender and slotting one home to secure that the traveling fans would be going home happy. Cheltenham now fall to 8th in the leauge whilst Bournemouth find themselves 6th for the first time in many fans memories however duffy had this to say on the game. Duffy: In Other News Bournemouth Have Allowed For Donnelly , Toet and Kovacs to leave the club for small fee's due to the players not being in Duffy's Plans for te Future and also as part of the wage costs being cut at Dean Court.

  5. Please Read I will do my best to do some rating predictions, but i want to warn you in advance, i am not as expert and accurate as forumers like Phil GT, and i dont know if SM will be again as Harsh as they was last changes (but they probably will), so i ask you in advance, doublecheck the players and teams you are mostly intersted in, especially the middle-bottom table ones, i will do my best in the little time i have, and dont rely too much on my ratings but think of them as an general idea of the average ratings that the team players will get, and as i said before be sure to double check and ask more detailed info if you are concerned. Also, im not really updated on those players that have little minutes but that have been playing constantly since the last changes up to now, so if anyone discovers such players, and you think they have the wrong prediction, just post a notification, so i can edit it. Alright, Ty for reading til here, i hope my predictions will give you an idea of how the italian changes will be, but again, be sure to double check the stats of the players/teams your interested in. PS. i Also have little time, so im not sure how long it will take to complete all the predictions, so any help will be more than Welcome Serie A League Table Links to the predicted teams: Milan Internazionale Napoli Udinese Lazio Roma Juventus Palermo Fiorentina Genoa Catania Parma Cagliari Cesena Chievo Bologna Lecce Sampdoria Brescia Bari

    Paul Pogba

    Just been to the youth FA cup final. Sheffield United V Manchester United. Finished 2-2, the 2nd leg is on Monday. One player really stood out for me and thats Paul Pogba. Don't know if he's been mentioned before but allegedly he was tapped up by ManU, and there's a reason for that! Hes got skill, power, pace, a viscious shot and not too great-a temper (I think Rooney might have been mentoring him XD ). He has a great future in the game and is a decimate hot long-term prospect once he's added to the database. Keep your eye out for him!

    The Controversy Thread.

    Re: The Contoversey Thread. Not sure what Gaga ( she a man?) would make of this but one things for sure bloody corner shops have got to go, not all of them just newsagents. Don’t get me wrong I have always been a firm believer in supporting your local economy , buy stuff from the little man, keep the high street open and all that, but no more my friends oh no. Put up the rent, business rates, electricity and get rid and go to ASDA I say… For years I have used a local newsagents, I will buy milk, Cigarettes, my eldest daughters weekly copy of Kerrang, newspapers ,sweets etc etc sometimes spending best part of a tenner a day. I know I could get them cheaper in a supermarket but oh no, back the independent trader me. Over the years I have got to know these people and look forward to their polite ( albeit in broken English ''Good morning''. So it seemed perfectly natural for me to ask 2 weeks ago if they stock a Moshi Monster sticker album for my 5 year old. Not at the moment I was told but we are expecting a new batch this week ( last week now), oh good’ I say, can you save me one?, of course I am told. So last week I went into the shop and asked if the album had arrived……. Shop keeper …what album? Longnose…the album we spoke about last week, the Moshi Monster sticker album you said you would save for me. ShopKeeper..we don’t have any of them Longnose …You said that last week, but that they will be in this week.. Shop Keeper..No they come next week ( this week) Longnose (sigh)..right, can you save me one?, only it is for my daughter and she is very excited about getting it.. ShopKeeper…OK Longnose..so it will be here? Shopkeeper…yes Longnose..next week (this week) Shop Keeper..Yes Now I should add I have been happily buying my daughter packets of Moshi Monster Stickers ( from the same newsagents) for sometime now. So this week, I went back into the (packed with secondary school children) newsagents and asked if the album had arrived ? Shopkeeper …what album? Longnose…the album we spoke about last week, the Moshi Monster sticker album you said you would save for me. Shop Keeper. We don’t have any of them Longnose..I beg your pardon? ShopKeeper. We don’t have any Moshi Monster sticker albums Longnose…You said you would, and that you would save one for me Shopkeeper…No Longnose…No?, what the ( Flaming*) hell do you mean No Shopkeeper…I did not say that Longnose…Yes you (flaming) well did Shopkeeper (shaking head whilst serving one of the school kids)…No I didn’t Longnose….( shouting now) You (flaming) well did mate and have the (flaming) courtesy to look at me when I am talking to you..You told me twice that you would save me a sticker album, not once (flaming) twice and now you stand there and call me a (Flaming) Liar. Shopkeeper….Get out of my shop or I will call the Police. Longnose...Call the ( Flaming) Police then you arrogant git*, and I will tell them what a robbing( bleeder*) you are. You can stick your ( Flaming) album, your ( Flaming) newspapers and your ( Flaming) shop...I will never spend a ( Flaming) penny in here again. * I'll let you substitute that word accordingly With that, and much to the amusement of the 15 or so teenagers in the shop I stormed out, and almost run over some old lady over as I sped away in frustration, I was /remain bloody livid, the ungrateful sod. Anyway, I have know concluded I will never buy something from a shop unless the person who is selling it is wearing a uniform,a name badge, has a line manager, and the shop has a clear code of customer service, and an appropriate method of complaining if dissatisfied. I suggest you heed my words and do the same…

    Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... First deal is quite good already' date=' but second deal is sweeter if he/she rejects the second deal, you can always go back to the first deal. Both Ibra and Di Natalie are solid, and safe at their ratings for at least another 2/3 years. If money isn't worth much then I'd forget about the first deal, as for the second deal, Suarez isn't good enough to replace Tevez directly, so I'd counter Suarez + someone else from his team that is 91/2 rated that is younger that 30. Or, you could just keep Tevez, he's been City's best performer this year Neymar is a classic young brazillian striker' date=' tricky and fast, but he has yet to prove his worth in a top team in a top league, whereas on the other hand, Hulk has been scoring for fun this season and has a chance of getting 92. I'd keep Hulk for now. Hard one... Muller is another 'Klose' - doesn't perform for his club but does amazing for his country, so it's hard to predict his ratings in the future, and unless he picks his form up next season he will be stuck at 91/2 for a long time. Young is linked to a move to Liverpool/United, so he will easily be able to rise quickly there, so I would accept the deal mate. Chamakh will drop, Arshavin might drop so it's a solid deal for both sides getting players that will drop-drop-drop If you have Arshavin I would reject mate, he will be higher than both of them for the rest of his career.

  38. Re: French Ligue 1 & 2 (Risers Edition) Lot of posts today Going to attempt to answer "en masse", let me know if I've missed anything out. There's not one at the moment' date=' not too may predictions for whole teams either, I think there's just my Lyon one, but may be looking at Marseille and Bordeaux before the changes. Can take requests for individual teams if there's a specific team you'd want to see predictions for. It's possible for Debuchy, probably 60/40 chance of 90, maybe even higher chance. Wouldn't say it's guaranteed though, wouldn't be surprised if he didn't get 90. André Ayew should definitely get at least 89, outside chance at 90 as well. Rémy, Valbuena and Gignac are all at 90, and he's at a similar level to them, so 90 shouldn't be too far away for him. Jeremy Pied 86-87/86 Raphael Varane 80-83/84 Pierrick Cros 82-82/83 Benjamin Stambouli 82-84/85 Obviously depends on your team' date=' but would tend to keep all of them after the next review, especially Varane. Can't see Pied go much higher, maybe only to 88 within the next season, but even if Bastos does leave for Juventus, there's a lot of competition on the wings for Lyon, so even that isn't guaranteed. Out of the 4, he'd be the 1st one I'd look to sell. Could see them both rising to 88 in the next changes. Rennes haven't been playing too well lately, dropping down to 5th in the table which could restrict rises any higher, but they should still be able to get a +1 or +2. Stated above that I think that Marseille's 5 attacking players have been the revelations of the season for the club' date=' but Rémy has been the most impressive of the 5. Not 100% certain, but he's got a shot at 91. Briand is a good player, but 89 is good for him at the moment. Will need some better team performances to have a chance of rising in the future. Theophile-Catherine and Briand have been mentioned above, would probably keep them both though. T-C can rise further next season, and if Bastos leaves for Juve, Briand would be Lyon's best winger. Aurier may not get a rise, due to Lens getting relegated, but he's still a very good prospect at RB. Andre and Corchia are both interesting though. Andre has admitted that he hasn't been 100% fit whilst at Bordeaux, and although they do have an option to sign him, it's apparently in excess of 10 million. Given the lack of playing time he's had, I doubt they're going to go for it, meaning he'll go back to Kyiv at the end of the season, which the player doesn't want to do. He won't rise, but a lot depends on where he's going to be playing his football next season. At the moment, I'd probably suggest sell. Corchia's team Le Mans are currently 3rd in Ligue 2, but there are 5 teams fighting it out for the 3 promotion spots. Even if Le Mans do get promoted though, there's a chance that Corchia could be leaving. He's a very good prospect, so if you were to sell him, I would suggest only if you can bring in someone who's going to be better/a better riser than him, because if he does stay and Le Mans get promoted, he probably won't rise within the next year. If he stays and Le Mans stay in Ligue 2, there's probably a chance he could drop - he's already 2 ratings higher than the cap for Ligue 2, it would be hard to justify such a rating for 2 seasons in a row. Gomis is a decent player. Wasteful, but a solid enough 89, won't rise or drop. This season, I haven't been too impressed by him, so I'd probably sway towards sell, but should Lyon find the right manager who's willing to play to his strengths and let other players like Lisandro, Gourcuff and Pjanic do the build-up play and leave Gomis to cause trouble for the defenders, he could do well. That's just "ifs" though. Answered above' date=' both unlikely, but an outside chance for Hazard, very little chance for Aurier. Not really. Briand has been answered above, should stay. Mamadou Sakho is a top prospect, but is already amongst the highest rated players at PSG, so won't get a rise until the team performs at a higher level, in European competitions. Bordeaux's Alou Diarra is more likely to get a drop than a rise. Already a very highly-rated player for the French leagues, Bordeaux are in the bottom half of the table and although he started the season as captain of the national side alongside M'Vila and Gourcuff, he's possibly lost his starting place in the national team to Samir Nasri, who started the last competitive game in his place, Diarra playing with the "B" side in the friendly against Croatia. He may stay, but for me, a drop is most likely.

  43. Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Villa appoint Matty-avfc After a sucsessful 31 games in charge of Preston north end Matty-Avfc last week decided to jump ship and take on the huge task of getting an abondoned aston villa back too where they belong...... THE PREMIER LEAGUE. Humphries started his 7046 career at Preston north end where he was given the task of saving the club from relegation. The odds were stacked against him doing it though, The club found themselves in debt, 15 points cut adrift with just 11 games gone and a squad which was unfit and divoid of confidence. Matty succeeded though and with 5 games too spare guarenteed the club another year in division 2 finishing in a very respectable 13th posistion. Come the end of the season though KieranBHA resigned from his post at aston villa after the embarrasement of getting them relegated became to much to bear. As soon as the Job arose humphries has his heart set on becoming the aston villa manager with one newspaper reporting he said "I would love to become the new aston villa manger and i would encourage Randy (aston villa chairman) to meet with me and see what vision i have for taking the club forward". Just hours after the newspaper printed Humphries quotes an official club statement was issued. The short statment read....... Humphries will have a huge job on his hands over the next 3-4 season trying to rebuild a squad that was neglected and trying to make them into a premier league power house again. Humphries though was not detered by the sclae of the task with him just being thankfull that he has the oppurtunity to manager his boy hood club.

  44. Re: *NEW* Young Argentine Talent ANDRADA, Esteban Stats: Name: ANDRADA, Esteban Club: Lanus Age: 20 D.O.B.: 26/01/91 Position: GK Squad Number: 13 SM Rating: 75 Profile: The goalkeeper position is one that Argentinean’s aren’t exactly famed for. In recent times, Los Albicelestes have struggled to pin down a regular number one between the sticks with many names being given the chance to shine, yet flatter to deceive. Names like Juan Pablo Carrizo, Mariano Andujar and Oscar Ustari have been looked at, but not stepped up to the mark. Even current number one Sergio Romero isn’t quite the reassuring character you look for to don the gloves. With so much uncertainty surrounding the position, it’s worth considering whether Esteban Andrada is the answer to Argentina’s long-term problems. For the mean time, Andrada has the problem of actually figuring on the domestic scene, as he currently sits behind Mauricio Caranta and Augustin Marchesin in the pecking order at Lanus. With Lanus currently experiencing an enjoyable Clausura and Caranta marshalling one of the best defences in the league in 2011, the likelihood is that Andrada won’t be earning his professional debut anytime soon. But he need not worry, as there is a very good chance that he will realise his dream of a move to a European giant before he even steps on the pitch for Lanus. That is because Spanish superpowers FC Barcelona are currently in negotiations with Lanus to wrap up a 4ME deal to bring the Argentine under-20 ‘keeper over to Spain. Already this year have Dutch side PSV Eindhoven been sniffing around Andrada following his impressive showing at the Sudamericano under-20 Championship in Peru. But it is Barcelona who are favourites to snap up this promising young shot-stopper, with the Catalan giants rumoured to be lining Andrada up as Victor Valdes’ reserve when Jose Manuel Pinto’s contract expires at the end of next season. Background: Andrada was born in the city of Mendoza, which is on the Western side of Argentina in the province of Mendoza. He played for a small lower league side in his early years, San Martin de Mendoza, before Lanus recognised his talent and snapped him up at the age of 16. It wasn’t long before he picked up his nickname of “El Gato”, or “the cat”, due to his excellent reflexes in net. Lanus were no doubt impressed by his stature, being a heady 1.93m tall today, and his ability to claim crosses is one of his underlying strengths. At the age of 18, then under-20 coach Sergio Batista (now senior team coach) selected Andrada to take part in the 2009 under-20 Toulon tournament as Augustin Marchesin’s – his current team mate at Lanus - back-up. Argentina ended up finishing third with Diego Buonanotte starring with four goals to finish as joint-top scorer. While Andrada didn’t manage to get on the pitch in France, the experience stood him in good stead for the Sudamericano under-20 Championships in Peru earlier this year. Argentina as a team struggled to impress here, limping home to a third-place finish once more, missing out on a place at the 2012 Olympic Games. However, Andrada was impressive in goal picking up the Best Goalkeeper award for the tournament, as Argentina achieved the consolation of qualifying for the World under-20 Championships to be held this summer in Colombia. It was here that Andrada managed to impress his potential suitors and earn himself a life-changing move to Europe. Future: As I have already discussed, Barcelona’s interest in Andrada is strong and legitimate, and it is widely expected that a transfer shall be concluded in the coming weeks. Obviously, he isn’t going to be forcing Victor Valdes out of the side anytime soon, but he shall no doubt jump straight into competition with goalkeepers of Barcelona’s reserve team that ply their trade in the Segunda of Spain, Barcelona B. If the rumours are true that Barcelona shall let Pinto’s contract run out in 2012 and that they shall give Andrada every opportunity of earning a spot in the first team squad, then we might be seeing him on the turf of the Nou Camp sooner than you think, albeit more than likely in Copa del Rey matches. Aside from that, the Argentina national team hold Andrada in high regard and expect him to develop into the number one shirt in the future. There’s a long way to go yet for the kid, but he’s made a giant leap forward in a very short space of time and is destined for great things should he continue that curve. Watch this space.

  45. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2010/2011 (III) Schürrle - 50/50, maybe 60/40 for a rise. Reus - If Gladbach (after their sensational form at the end of the season) also manage to win the 2-legged relegation play-off against Bochum and therefore manage to stay in the Bundesliga, then there's a chance for him to rise. I still wouldn't say it's much higher than 20-30% maybe.

    Football Manager 2011

    Re: Football Manager 2011 Phil Jones is quality in the latest patch. Our POTY but still didn't make the England WC squad! In the latest patch Jack Robinson can be bought relatively cheap. Jones obviously. Rodwell is a good one but usually expensive. Chamberlain another obvious one. Moving away from England - Alcacer has 4* potential in my Man City save (potential to be better then Dzeko!), but on my Leeds save, age 20, he's only 2.5*. Probably varies. Areola, Digne, Hazard (Thorgan), Yaisien are all good ones. Neymar and Ganso more obvious ones, cost probably £20m - £30m, but worth it if you want to splash out on one player! And Argentina and Brazil are well worth scouting, normally the best newgens come from there. Already one guy who has joined Real Madrid and gone U21 POTT at the WC, and another who has 44 youth goals in 48 youth caps!! (A record?) 2013/14 After that massive win at Old Trafford to all but secure 5th, we were level with Chelsea with 4 games to go. We drew and lost our next two games, but two wins in the final two games were enough to nab 4th as Chelsea fell apart! They took 4 points from their last 4 games and got battered by City 3-0 in the final game. World Cup: None of my players made the England WC squad, despite Naughton playing in a pre-tournament friendly. Jones and Sefton should both be in there really (both in Team of Year, Sefton got most assists and RU in Footballer of Year). I did have Naismith, Snodgrass, Dzagoev and Arshavin all at the WC. Scotland didn't make it out of the groups (and Snoddy didn't play..), whilst Dzagoev scored twice, but to no avail - Russia still missed out on the latter stages. England meanwhile made it to the Quarters before losing 0-4 to Cameroon in extra time. Cameroon's stunning run came to end on penalties to Brazil whilst Germany gained revenge on Spain for 2010 to make the final. Germany beat Brazil 1-0 with a Kiessling goal to win the World Cup. 2014/15 Currently in pre-season, now preparing for a Champions League campaign. My first signing of the campaign came in June - Sergio Canales was transfer listed and at £4.4m, a bargain! Fantastic stats and only 23. Retraining him to play RAM. I finally gave in to Zenit's relentless chase for Dzagoev (who I'd only had for a season!) and accepted a £7.5m offer, but AC Milan and Sevilla both twigged and he eventually joined Milan. Still - £5m profit for one season! Spurs have also been chasing Naughton for a while, and after spotting an amazing 20yo right-back I decided to cave! £8m for him (£4.5m profit), whilst spending £11m to bring in this right-back (pic to follow). I then went in chase of a proper defensive-midfielder who could also create (Cairney is just too attacking for the deep-lying defensive role). Rodwell was perfect - but very expensive. Carlao is a Brazilian newgen, only 20yo and fantastic stats. I agreed fees of £22m for Rodwell and £16m for Carlao, but I eventually decided to take Rodwell. Reasons: Slightly better defensive and physical stats (Carlao has 1 better Passing and 18 Long Shots) and the main one - English. Well worth the extra £6m. Doesn't have to learn the language, doesn't have to adapt to English football, one more home-grown player, and the fact that he's English alone - naturally I want as many English players as possible! Also signed Martin Kelly on a free from 'Pool to provide cover for my defence. Previously we had Andy O'Brien playing. I did sign a 19yo from City for £10m in January, but he's primarily a DM so I'm retraining. Squad: Goalkeepers: Areola (21) Schmeichel (27) Adabe (18) - nabbed from Villa. Left-backs: Robinson (20) - the Liverpool one Taylor (20) - Youth product IRL Right-backs: Mendiboure (21) Clyne (23) Centre-backs: Juhasz (31) Jones (22) Lorenzi (19) Kelly (24) Kisnorbo (33) Centre-mids: Sefton (21) Cairney (23) Rodwell (23) Howson (26) Collison (25) Wingers: Canales (23) Arshavin (33) Snodgrass (26) Gradel (26) Templeton (26) - trying to sell Nunez (28) - trying to sell White (22) - trying to sell/loan Strikers: Kieffer (21) Naismith (27) Jeanvier (19) My planned XI this season: AreolaMendiboure - Jones - Juhasz - Robinson Rodwell - Cairney Canales - Sefton - Arshavin Kieffer Average Age: 23 (Click the names to see their attributes) I was going to printscreen each individual player, but then I decided it wasn't worth it and there's a limit to links per post. So the 11 first-teamers and the newgens not in XI will have to suffice. Lorenzi: http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h29/SeftyLeeds/AlfredoLorenziProfile_Attributes.png Jeanvier: http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h29/SeftyLeeds/AlbertoJeanvierProfile_Attributes.png 5 English players in that line-up too.

Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Rio Leaves The Blues Rio Not Happy At The Bridge In A Bizzare deal which has shocked the footballing world it has been annonced former England Captin Rio Ferdinand has passed a medical at Ewood Park and has completed his deal making him a division two player next season. It was expected that Ferdinand (32) was set to be leaving the blues after Manager Aaron Duffy had annonced he was looking to re shape the defence and add some new players to the squad with Rio and Drogba being the men to leave. However no one would have expected Rio to join recently Relegated Blackburn , but its happend to the delight of Blackburn Fans and Chelsea fans who have seen Rio's Departure as a chance for a new look chelsea to be born and there wish has started to be awnsered with Brett Hangeland and Anderson Hernanes joining the blues in trade. The deal is said to have come around after the chelsea boss missed out on Ricardo Kaka who left Ewood Park earlier in the week to join up with Nottingham Forest. After the deal broke down for kaka there was discussion into potential trades between the clubs officials with Ferdinand and Drogba being the main topic of discussion. After hours of discussion and many blackburn players in the bids for Rio it was decided Hangeland and Hernanes we're to be joining the blues after the Blackburn Chairman wouldnt allow another player to be in the deal. The Big Norwegian Will be a Rock at Centre Half Samba Centre Midfielder will add Creativity Duffy:

  49. Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread GARYMACK HITS BACK Rochdale manager GaryMack After todays accusations in a downmarket Manchester tabloid, Rochdale football club manager GaryMack has released a statement through the club website. "The incident described in todays paper has been blown out of proportion, it was not an attack on the manager, it was merely an attempt and I admit, a poor attempt, at dental hygiene" adding "every week this man (Rob Walshe) subjects millions of fans watching Manchester City's games to his horrible yellow teeth and someone had to do something about it" McKinven also stated that todays photo of him jumping on City manager Walshe has been edited to make it look like he was attacking the manager. After some investigating the police have found that this is true and the actual photo shows McKinven holding a tooth brush, with this new information, all charges have been dropped against the Dale manager. the original photo before City edited it Charges have now been lodge with Manchester City and their manager for wasting police time, which has a maximum penalty of 6months imprisonment and a £5000 fine.......buttons to the Manchester Club. It is believed this whole incident could have been avoided if Rob Walshe had just taken more care of his teeth. The manager is often referred too as "Nosferatu" and his teeth have been compared to as "Tomestone teeth" or "A row of condemed houses" the little vampire Nosferatu One thing is for sure, Rochdale manager GaryMack was trying to do the public a favour and for that he will not be appearing in court tomorrow, Instead Manchester City mananger Rob Walshe will be the man in the dock and thankfully he won't be smiling.
