Action or Lack of It

Everyday  many of us scan the newsfeeds, various rumour sites and any other source we can find, looking for something  that gives a little clue if we are planning to or looking at a player.  I know that this isn't always  reliable, but it is what we have at our disposal. But constantly every day, sometimes every hour another [...]

Tettey Rumour

Trio Looking for Hooper.... Rumours

The Hooper rumour saga fires to life again after it had seemingly died down a little,   now Villa and West Ham are said to be joining QPR in the hunt for Hoops now.     All internet rumours at the moment,  let's hope they stay that way as I feel Hooper will be a big player for City this season.    

QPR Bid Rejected For Fer, Only Time Now

According to several reports  City have rejected a bid from QPR for Leroy Fer, know Harry it won't be for that much yet, he will come back .  Should have known yesterday that he was close to making a bid when he went public and denied anything about Fer.    I rekon that will be another player leaving Carrow Road, as the [...]

Hearing a little whisper that City's 3rd game on their supposed mini tour has been or could be  cancelled,  although we have no official conformation as yet; we stress this is only a rumour.

We know City do not have to sell, But What about Buying Instead

I don't know about anyone else amongst the Yellow followers but I am getting more than a little tired of the constant statements coing out of Carrow Road and picked  by just about every media outlet.   There is nothing but How City don't have to sell,  we knocked back this offer and that offer  for Redmond or  [...]

Becchio Interesting Watford

Watford are reported to be loking at making a move for Becchio,  they are almost certain to be losing Troy Deeny to a Premier League side and see Becchio as an adequate replacement,  Leeds have always been reported to be interested without really making a move except for a loan deal which was refused by ex manager Chris Hughton

QPR Deal For Fer Wide of the Mark

Despite the report coming from Holland last night it would seem they are wide of the mark concerning Leroy Fer's supposed transfer to QPR, today his agent has claimed he has not spoken to QPR regarding any moves.

A Right Royle Turn Up

I did expect something more from an elder statesman of the game, Joe Royle  showed that no matter how long you are in the game somethings never change,  once a merchanary always a merchanary .  The ink hardly dry on a contract eith City he ups and runs to Everton. I do not care for what reasons  what about a little honour for a [...]

Tony Parks has been appointed as the Club’s new goalkeeping coach.  Parks stayed with the FA until 2008, when he was approached by Harry Redknapp to move to White Hart Lane. He left his position in May this year following the appointment of Pochettino as manager. I remember Parks from his days between the sticks for Spurs a bit of a hero [...]

Bassong Been a Naughty Boy

In the media today Adams confirms exactly what we said.   Adams revealed the central defender has been training with the club’s younger talent and the 28-year-old played no part in Adams’ s [...]

Come on Lets see some Clarity

Yesterday Adams said the following Bassong was part of the development squad who trave [...]
