Linked today with signing Phil Neville's son. Anyone know anything about him?


1.) 07 Oct 2017 11:31:17
He's Gary Neville's nephew.

2.) 07 Oct 2017 12:41:42
Neville Nevilles grandson.

3.) 07 Oct 2017 12:56:13
He was originally in the man city academy and now plays for valencia youth team. He is highly thought of by all accounts.

4.) 09 Oct 2017 14:14:29
Tracey Neville's nephew as well.

City have launched a late bid for the much needed Dutchman Phil de Seets.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 00:44:51
Good one mort.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 05:27:38
Nice one. I saw this on the Spurs site.

31 Aug 2017 22:13:12
BREAKING: Arsenal have had a £45m bid accepted for Chinese sensation Fu-Kin No-Wan.



04 Jul 2016 10:39:43
Rumours we're interested in will Hughes at Derby.


1.) 04 Jul 2016 11:07:24
it's rubbish mort something you can expect from most english papers especially likes of sun, last i checked we had enough home grown players, we don't need to buy english players just to meet the quota.

2.) 04 Jul 2016 11:21:07
We don't need another Nick Powell at the club.

3.) 04 Jul 2016 11:25:19
Yh and if we did need to look at homegrown english players wed probably be pushing harder for john stones signature.

4.) 04 Jul 2016 11:45:48
He's 3 times the player Nick p.

5.) 04 Jul 2016 11:47:25
He's 3 times the player Nick Powell is. Seen a lot of him as my old fella is a ram. He's destined for a big club. Shame he's a Liverpool fan 👎.

6.) 04 Jul 2016 12:29:27
Its a rumour. This is a rumours page.

7.) 04 Jul 2016 14:54:59
Apparently despite the fact that it clearly says it is at the top of the page Mort my friend, it isn't. lmao.

8.) 04 Jul 2016 15:12:27
He is definitely 3x the player Nick was/ is. I would take Hughes but not for him to starve on the bench or stick him in the Reserves. In 3 years or so he'll be ready to kill this league, he has everything to make it.

And . A. Ramsey was a United fan, look how that turned out?! .

9.) 04 Jul 2016 17:28:31
Doubt it'll happen, but I'd love to be wrong.

He's a fantastic kid, and easily ready for a bit part role in the first team at a big club, with a steady increase in game time as he develops. Good chance he'd be a regular starter in a couple of years.

10.) 05 Jul 2016 03:57:13
Maybe Mou is looking at English players because he is thinking of moving a few on? Young? Lingard? Carrick has 1 more year? Smalling? Fletcher (younger) has just gone?

11.) 08 Jul 2016 12:45:41
I wouldn't mind signing Ramsey?

Midfield 3 of Pogba, Ramsey and Tufan would be immense!



30 Dec 2015 14:14:14
Is there anything in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?


1.) 30 Dec 2015 14:40:01
He only arrived in the summer so I think it's just the press stirring. Especially the price quoted. I would have thought they would have to pay more to include the remainder of his contract.

2.) 30 Dec 2015 16:53:38
Thought so. Would be an odd one unless he's homesick.

3.) 31 Dec 2015 07:48:07
If Darmian was a target for Juve, couldn't we get Dybala involved in the deal? Apparently he's unsettled there and would be a great deal to get over the line?

{Ed002's Note - No, zero chance.}

4.) 31 Dec 2015 08:11:06
Ok, thanks Ed, thought I'd ask at least?



20 Jul 2015 13:53:04
Spurs bid for Hernandez. Interesting if true.


1.) 20 Jul 2015 14:45:48
Hernandez will stay as back up to Rooney. Can't see united strengthening up front and what top striker would be lured to sitting on the bench. Noted RVP comments about Rooney set in stone up front and I'm sure strikers around the world know score. REMEMBER we got Wilson and Fellaini who can fit the role too.

2.) 20 Jul 2015 16:04:56
I can't see Hernandez staying. He'll get virtually no game time. He wasn't impressive for us in his final 18 months and wasn't impressive at Madrid - your secondary strikers need to be nearly as good as your first choice now.

In terms of Spurs, I work with a lot of Spurs fans and it's a story that comes up every year. Personally, as a starter, I'd put Hernandez another level down - Villa, West Ham, Newcastle - so I'm not so sure it's true.

3.) 20 Jul 2015 17:30:30
Little p is a goalscorer no ifs or buts. He plays he scores. His build up play ain't the best but on the shoulder he's a threat intelligent runs. We could have done with him last season should never had let him go.

4.) 20 Jul 2015 19:45:25
No way we will sell home while his collarbone is in 2 pieces

Two offside goals so far.

Come on Mort, they were scary today.

2.) 16 Sep 2017 22:55:46
Maybe but Watford aren't a great side. No trophies handed out in September.

Was just in Greggs getting a couple of pastys and the guy in the queue infront was on the phone ordering letters for the united megastore. Bulk order of S, J an N. No idea who's coming.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 16:45:06

Great news, that must mean Bale is definitely coming then! haha.

{Ed001's Note - is he the brother of the lad at Citeh?}



29 Jul 2017 19:36:58
I'm sorry but I don't get all the panic about City. 55 mill for an average rb and another 30 for a guy from madrids bench. 52 on a guy who could be good but will have to settle. Then yet another attacker they didn't need. How is Fraudiola going to fit them all on the pitch.

Arsenal and spurs have done nothing. Liverpool look like world beaters. In pre season. Wait till the wheels come off once they have to play twice a week.


1.) 29 Jul 2017 19:53:10
Aguero, jesus, silva, silva, de bruyne, sane and potentially alexis sanchez.

I agree that we shouldn't be too worried because there's nothing we can do but that is an impressive set of forwards.

2.) 29 Jul 2017 19:55:07
Mort, I think I love you.

3.) 29 Jul 2017 20:08:43
Walker is a very good RB, as is Mendy on the other side. We seriously lack in the full back positions and they are two good signings for city. Their attack is very good already and they could yet add Sanchez. I still think they might try for VVD too. They without question have the best squad for next season.

4.) 29 Jul 2017 20:17:21
I hate City as much as any other United fan, but you have to always look at transfers from that particular teams point of view.
They are already sorted in their attacking actions for years to come. Now they've addressed their full back problem for few years. I don't think they would be spending big after this window. In the coming windows they need to replace yaya and a CB.
They've got a fantastic group of young players. These players will be going to the Spanish league from this year onwards to get first team action and play against top oppositions. I not sure if they bought a team in Spain or have an understanding ( like between Chelsea and Vitesse ) .

5.) 29 Jul 2017 20:20:42
City half sorted one problem, but there still soft through the middle. Midfield isn't particularly good, an injury to Kompany and their central defence is in trouble, and the keeper could take time to settle.

6.) 29 Jul 2017 20:23:09
They have no centre backs and average central midfielders. The two most pivotal areas of the pitch.

7.) 29 Jul 2017 20:46:36
I love u.

8.) 29 Jul 2017 21:07:20
They will buy a Cb.

9.) 29 Jul 2017 21:08:26
I think you prefer yourself just a little more jred.

10.) 29 Jul 2017 21:17:51
Ken, you can't help yourself can you.?

11.) 29 Jul 2017 21:20:35
I love Ken and jred!

12.) 29 Jul 2017 22:18:26
It goes both ways tony.

13.) 29 Jul 2017 22:36:14
Walkers average at best. Levy pulled their pants down. Danilo is nothing special either. Kompany is sponsored by bupa. As is gundogan. Cheers ajh.

14.) 29 Jul 2017 22:47:23
Isnt kompany a member of platinum st johns ambulance?

15.) 29 Jul 2017 23:24:05
can shity only play 11 players or have they got special rules.

16.) 29 Jul 2017 23:31:22
And how many of those forwards can play at the same time? And how many subs will stay in world class sharpness and fitness when they don't even make the bench for half the games?

Stop giving the title to our rivals before a ball has even been kicked.

17.) 30 Jul 2017 08:43:21
I love big butts and I cannot lie.

18.) 30 Jul 2017 16:12:38

What absolute nonsense.

1. Walker certainly isn't all-that, but average he is not. He's more than decent player that immediately improves City. What City paid for him I don't see how that makes Walker more or lesser of a good player.

2. Danilo indeed struggled to make RM's eleven. a Madrid team far superior than City. Many good, very good players can't start at the elite clubs but would WALK into most other good teams 11s (City, Chelsea, PSG etc) .

By your "logic", Sanchez, Fabregas, Isco, Pedro were not worth buying cause they were benchwarmers. Impeccable logic there.

3. Mendy. Again you've made absolutely NO argument here about why this purchase isn't all-that but instead prattle about the obvious. Every player comes with little to no guarantee and will (DUH! ) OBVIOUSLY need to settle. Lindalof is no exception. as is Salah, Rudiger, Lacazzete. Again, your mention of his fee adds NOTHING to the point.

4. Assuming you referring to Bernado Silva, how do you figure they "don't" need him? Interesting how you not critiquing the player's merit but his acquisition. Needless to say, Silva is a VERY good player who significantly bolsters City's attack and, obviously, depth.
Whichever view your biased lens gives you, City's first eleven and bench is stronger for this signing.

5. How they going to fit them all? In what. first eleven. squad? If the former, then what a daft, needless question. They won't. But am sure "Fraudiola" as you call him is allowed substitutions and to rotate his squad. Better to have a Danilo, Sterling, Bertrand (potentially) coming off the bench than Young, Blind (make-shift), Valencia/ Darmian.

6. Arsenal done "nothing"? Yeah, of course. Adding a very competent left back and excellent, clinical forward is doing "nothing".
And Arsenal may yet again do "nothing" by adding Lemar. They may lose Sanchez of course. May.
We don't know. Transfer window not closed. How about you actually chill your bones and wait lad?

7. Spurs haven't been active. Is the transfer window closed yet?

8. Liverpool. World beaters. Preseason.
Yeah if course. That's such a brilliant insight. The world never knew not to read much into preseason games until the genius Mort pointed it out. Daft, really.

2 games a week? Yep, all those years Chelsea, Utd were winning PL and same time strongly competing in the CL must of been me dreaming.

The irony of you saying Silva was not "needed" and then making this "point" about Liverpool's wheels coming off having to play two games a week.

I get the nature of fans to be biased. What I can't get is their propensity to be utterly daft. as aptly examplified by you Mort.

And the thing is, I'm not even a Manchester City fan. I didn't need to be to see the folly of your post. But go on. I see the cheer leaders here clapping and cheering you on. Doesn't change the fact that your daft though.



26 May 2017 14:46:03
United, specifically Jose do it and its boring negative and defensive. Atletico and Juventus do it and its a tactical defensive master class.


1.) 26 May 2017 14:51:45
Exactly Mort, there is more than one way to skin a cat. it would be a very boring game if everyone tried to play it the same way. Although personally I would like to see us be a little more buccaneering, but you can't argue with two trophies out of four.

2.) 26 May 2017 15:24:21
You guys are correct. However Juventus and Athletico have done it whilst being relatively competitive in there leagues (less so athletico this year) . We have done it ending up 6th!
There is a difference.
Next year will be the comparison when we are similar to the old Chelsea, defensive and pragmatic but with an attacking edge to us.

3.) 26 May 2017 15:36:41
The difference is the league Brad. How many teams compete for the title in Spain and Italy? Almost certain that 90% of the folks won't even be able to name the 20 teams competing. Premier League is a different beast altogether. Leicester won it last year, no better way to explain how difficult it is here. You put Juve/ Atletico in Premier League and let's see what happens.

4.) 26 May 2017 15:44:35

See if they could do well in their leagues playing Thursday - Sunday each week, none of the final 4 in the Europa league won their respective league and teams rarely win the Europa league / UEFA cup as well as their own league.

5.) 26 May 2017 16:03:54
The difference is we're Manchester United.

He seems level headed though and the club rate him. You think he'll stay?


{Ed001's Note - so far he has, but it really depends on what the club's plans are for him to be honest. He will want to see a clear path for him to progress.}
