  3. markg says:

    did they not already cloned him and called him Rhodi

  4. Doghouse says:

    How prophetic. Although cloned Giggs really just looks like a cleaned up Tevez.

    Well, the ad from ’97 accurately portrays City today – No class, all cash.

  8. Ash says:

    Sutherland, Vermijl, Wootton, Blackett, Veseli, Ekangamene, Bebe, Powell, Januzaj, Macheda, Henriquez.

    Line up against stockport reserves.

    Rio and Anton statement. Will work with existing organizations to improve the situation.

    Thank both clubs and managers for their support. Nice touch. Well done to both. Very interested to see
    how this progresses and am sure they will see alot of support from the fans.

    This was shown in all the cinemas around Manchester in 96 and 97. City fans were not amused!

    They wish they are Man Utd……
    They wish they had Ryan Giggs…..
    They wish they had 19 titles……
    They wish they where 11 times F.A.Cup Winners…..
    They wish they where 3 times Champions of Europe…..
    They wish they where 2 times Champions of the world…..
    They wish, they wish, they wish……..
    But all they did in their whole history was SHAMEING MANCHESTER SINCE 1880.
