Can we sue Manchester City?

Can we sue Manchester City?

Post  cyprussyd on 2018-06-03, 12:18 pm

I'm no expert on trade description laws but Manchester City sold us goods under the description, Premiership quality footballer.


I think any court in the land would find in our favour and agree that at least the product is faulty, indeed many would say well below the standard the description highlights.

We should demand..

Full recompense for fees paid plus running expenses and repair bills
Damages for the stress caused to owners and fans
That City either collect the product or pay P&P costs for us to return.


Apart from sidMCFC I'm sure everyone will agree.

I’m assuming he’s still made to turn up for training,  that can’t be good for the morale of the team.

Hate to say it but it might be best to just to pay the bugger off and get rid. That would stick in the craw though.

An alternative solution would be to send Billy round to his house.  That should sort it.

He trains alone and is not allowed to m ix with first team squad, the last regime did all they could to make life uncomfortable for hi but it didn't work.

We sent Billy round and he duffed him up. We then found he was at the wrong address and duffed up Jack Ridwall in Byker.

Christ I didn’t realise that.  The man has no dignity or self respect.

We could be onto something here.  A canny NE lad in Johnson and a Saintly Scouse lad turned into wasters and the one common denominator is that cesspit they entered.

At the time both these players were signed by City it was the done thing to sign up any up and coming or good established players for themselves so their rivals couldn't get them and add a few british players to their squads....loads of players have gone the same way....remember Steve Sidwell??

The Wayne Bridge situation was a bit odd, he had plenty of playing time at City but didn’t seem to live up to his potential.  I don’t think his misses being over friendly with John Terry helped.

I presume you mean Michael Johnson the Urmston lad who came through City’s academy.  His potential was amazing with comparisons being made of Colin Bell, unfortunately he had a long injury and just ballooned in weight as he liked his beer too much.  One of my lads knows his best friend and has met him a few times, he’s quoted as saying he just fell out of love with football full stop. He now owns a wine bar and estate agents and is happy again.  Sad really but at the end of the day you have to make your own destiny.

Sid  I understood the JT situation to be with Wayne Bridge's FORMER girlfriend, so in a way, none of his business really????

No mate, she’s definitely his former girlfriend now!  But they were living together when Terry came ‘poking’ around.
