Last day bid for Haaland incoming, now that everyone else who can scupper their plans has blown their load on other players? All part of the masterplan!

Or worse still, Mbappe.

He’s not been released on bail as he has broken previous conditions. In the slammer until Monday at the very least.

Wow. I know innocent until proven guilty and all that but that's quite poor from the club. And ridiculous that he kept getting bail.

Remanded in custody until appearing in Crown Court of September 10. That seems like a very short wait for Crown Court trial to start. Even discounting a pandemic backlog they seem to be delayed months.

I know it is good for the victims to not have to wait months or even the accused to have it hanging over them but yje cynic in me feels this may have been bumped up the list because he is a high earner.

Is there a limit to the amount of time someone can be remanded in custody if not yet found guilty? And letting him out again could be an error, in that he could flee the country/possibly commit more offences.

I agree he should be remanded if he is a flight risk or a risk to the public. If charged with multiple serious offences against multiple that seems a reasonable argument that he is. There is 72 hours between arrest and charge but didn't think there was once charged. A quick search suggests it was 6 months but Sept 2020 it was extended to 8 months.

As of March 2021 3,500 people were waiting longer than 6 months and I can't see that backlog having been cleared so 9 days seem a bit rapid.

They are deluded, the reason they get 50k is that they give away thousands of tickets every home league game

those tickets were only 20 quid each for a champions league game too. And they only get 38k!!!

I have a work colleague that's son plays for citys underage team. He gets a load of free tickets thrown his way for every game. He couldn't go to their match against chelsea because he had about 6 relatives over that weekend and when he refused the tickets, the coach said to him.........here's 8 tickets.....why don't you bring them all to the game!!!

38k attendance? Tragic.

I like the guy moaning about difficulties in getting the game. I thought the United fans were from far away and City fans all from Manchester.

The bit he got right is their supporter base is different.

Their recorded attendances are always high, but its the way you record that. The turnstyle numbers would tell a different story.

The guy's got a point though, they are a local team with the majority of their tourists turning up at the wrong stadium/team!

He protests way too much.

And can’t resist turning it into a jibe against Liverpool and United.

Haha yaaa- I like the way he says that they donít have 3,000/4,000 tourist fans at their games like us, but there was about 20,000 empty seats at their CL gameÖ is like ok, so what about the other 16,000??

Also I donít get why itís an insult to have foreign fans. That argument has a racist undertone- saying that we have to accept that we do have ďthose type of fansĒ. Is like yaaa itís tough to accept that we have a global following.

'Tourest fans' or not it's difficult to get tickets for LFC games and I assume Man Utd games so those fans have either at least made an effort or paid some 3rd party a significant supplement to come and watch us (or Man Utd). If they were just football fans wanting to see CL games with no loyalty they could just as easily (more likely easier) go and watch City. And despite City being a good team even those fans don't want to go and watch them

Sterling really seems to be out in the cold at city now.

At first I thought it was just rotation but it seems he's been properly replaced by grealish....

Hard to believe he's still only 26

He has played in every game. Half of them have been off the bench, but still, not exactly out in the cold.

Well yea, that's a touch of hyperbole but relative to the role he was playing for city for most of last season and before that, it's quite a change
