Noel Gallagher rubs Manchester City’s money in Roman Abramovich’s face

Oasis star makes Chelsea owner aware of City’s new found wealth

Noel Gallagher

The Spoiler was lucky enough to see Bonio and The Hedge on top form at Wembley Stadium this weekend, but we were quite offended not to be invited to the U2 after party at Home House.

Guests at the swanky Marylebone venue included excitable Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, legendary U2 producer Brian Eno, Zep God Jimmy Page, arty type Damien Hirst, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Oasis chief Noel Gallagher.

Mr Gallagher has never been one to keep his love of Manchester City under wraps, and it appears that his inebriated state helped him make an impression on a certain oligarch:

The highlight of Friday night’s tear-up was watching Noel reminding Red Rom that he didn’t have as much money as Manchester City.

    Farty Foulke.

    Fur coat and no knickers?

    Surely you are referring to the mega debt aka as Londons finest, ManU?

    I am sure that Roman was offended that a musician who is mearly a fan of a football team was telling the billionaire who has more money than him.

    Stay Classy Noah!

    The difference is, Chelsea’s owner is a private individual, not a government. The arabs should not even be allowed to own City – since when are foreign governments permitted to buy overseas teams? The Abu Dhabi Group is government/Royal family owned. It is like the German government being allowed to buy Spurs, or Ahmadinejad’s Iranian government being permitted to purchase Arsenal.
    What sort of sick mentality does it take for a government to put millions into a foreign sports club? Perhaps Prince Charles should use the royal purse to buy Barcelona for the British people!
    I’m amazed this overseas government intervention into our national sport has been allowed.

    This is to the idiot who says Sheikh Mansour should not be allowed to own a football club.
    You come out with your farcical statement but do explain the reasons why. What is the difference between Abramovich owning a Club and Skeikh Mansour? The money he uses is his own personal fortune. Why dont you make pathetic statements about Real Madrid who are funded by the Spanish Banks or Man Utd who are over 700Million in debt?

    If a member of the German government wanted to buy Spurs then they should be allowed to do so, whats the difference you idiot
