Shinawatra puts Man City’s entire squad up for sale!

Citeh’s Thai revolution takes another bizarre twist

Manchester City
UPDATE: Shinawatra has denied the story. You win this time, common sense.

Unassisted by useful journalistic tools like evidence and quotations, The Daily Express today are claiming that Thai nutbag Thaksin Shinawatra has put the entire Manchester City team up for sale:

Thai billionaire Shinawatra, who is already set to sack manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, is apparently so disgusted with the team’s performances in the second half of the season that he wants a massive clear-out, including young stars such as Micah Richards, Michael Johnson and Joe Hart.

If this is true, what the Gary Mabbutt is he up to? It’s no secret that Shinawatra is a fan of impatient and drastic measures – his war on drugs in Thailand were so ‘ruthless’ that a reported 2,700 people were killed in a two month period – but this ain’t the way to run a football club.

Still, it would be great news for the rest of the Premier League. Micah Richards, anyone?

    What a Pratt! Anyone want a cheap season ticket! The Thai wont get another penny from me. My first Season ticket was bought in 1959 and I am resolved never to spend either in the shop, in the ground, on a programme or donate to the platt lane development draw until the Thai goes. I have a feeling this guy will not be welcome at Eastlands by any of the fans… no matter what he does now. We should arrange for him to make some more apologies to the Thai government by flying Thai flags with the words ‘Shinawatra Go Home!’ emblazoned on them.
