So let me get this right.....

Post by blueboy on Sat Mar 04, 2017 10:55 am

Clubs have agreed this new 5 step process and signed up to it.

City have approached this 15 year old kid and currently, the transfer is at the step 4 stage.

This article shows images of kids at the CFA - not one other image of a youth at any other club.

City have done absolutely nothing wrong - yet there are claims there are 5 transfers currently being looked into - not once did it say this was Man City, yet they use our images.

Man United and Everton have raised concerns about City's youth transfer business - but the article doesn't once clarify what these concerns are.

City should report Mike Keegan from the Mail to the FA and Press Association, as this article makes it look like it's all about Man City - and chances are, the 5 transfers being looked at, are not City transfers!

I have made a formal complaint to the Fail after reading this outrageous article.

As stated, no other club is mentioned in connection to this alleged "tapping up".
No other photo's are used except the ones showing the City academy players.
It is without any facts or proof that City have committed any offence and implies that City are the only club being looked at.

Really surprised that Mike would have his name attached to what could very well be a sleight on our club.

But he works for the Fail now and they have an agenda.

Well done MCM, I'm going to do the same. I actually like the Mail for it's football coverage, on the whole...you always get some shite articles like other papers report......but to write this article in this way, with the images used, is just disgustingly wrong.

Just sent a Tweet to lots of City based journo's....MEN, Esteemed Kompany, Walter Smith, City Watch etc about this article. Also, just tweeted Mike Keegan as well....saying a backlash is coming for such appalling journalism.

I normally take any papers articles with a pinch of salt, even if I post them on here.....but to read something like this, made me really pissed off - as it was a clear dig at our academy, that is possibly, the best in the world and the work they do within the community, just makes us look unprofessional, which is absolutely untrue....unless he can back it up with facts. Terrible journalism.

It's the English disease, when someone is doing really well there is no positive coverage, much rather produce trash like this to try and tear it down.
Our junior teams at all levels are blowing teams away or or at least performing very well and in some quarters this is viewed with jealousy or resentment. How dare we try and do better than the established old guard but to produce such a blatantly biased piece of garbage like this is appalling journalism.
I just hope the club take legal action against them.

Well done guys....let's get as many people complaining as possible.

I agree MCM....the club should put a formal complaint in about this article - as it doesn't show us in a good light as a neutral.

Thank you for recent email concerning the above article which appeared on MailOnline.
 
I wish to stress that there is nothing factually incorrect with the article which was published after the information was checked with a number of different sources.
 
As we are rightly expected to do, all of the clubs named in the article were approached for a comment but none of them wished to respond.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
J Mansell
Consultant Sports Editor
Daily Mail




It may not have contained anything factually inaccurate but it was heavily biased against City who were the only club named in connection with the hub of the article. The only other 2 mentioned had "raised concerns" against City's transfer dealings.
It also contained 3 photo's all of our academy players, are they seriously claiming this  was a fair and unbiased story? WANKERS

Only 3 clubs were named and 2 of them were to support the unsubstantiated case against City FFS!

Also complained.

I've just got exactly the same reply from J Mansell.

Utter guff....I'm going to compose a reply and send it back to them.

I've noticed, in the past, that sometimes when I complain in the comments section, my comments are not published. They just don't seem to like their comments criticised for being factually incorrect.

How cute.

Just replied back to Kim Jong Jim.

Dear Jim

Many thanks your reply - eventually, however, at no point did I say that anything in the article was factually incorrect, which you mention in your reply.

Furthermore, you mention that all clubs concerned were approached for a comment, but refused. Why was this information omitted from the article, as your article states that Manchester United and Everton have both raised concerns about Man City's transfer activity:

Manchester United and Everton are both said to have raised concerns over City’s transfer business.

The article is extremely misleading at best. You lead up to the above statement of 'fact' by mentioning the goalkeepers transfer still at a stage of the legal process, which is perfectly normal according to your article - but follow this paragraph with the fact that Man United and Everton have raised concerns, as if there is something wrong with this transfer. You've clearly used your journalistic licence to make it sound that Man City are a club involved in 'dodgy' approaches to youth players. You claim 5 clubs are under investigation. If this is fact as you claim, why not name them? What's the betting Man City are not on that list? However, you choose 3 photograph's of MCFC's academy to strengthen your article to make the reader think MCFC are one of those clubs and have done something wrong.

Please remove the article or change the tone and intimation that MCFC are a club involved in these illegal approaches....removing or changing some of those pictures may reduce the bias in this article.

An awful piece of journalism. You claim Mike Keegan has written about facts, yet make insinuations throughout the article that MCFC are involved.

I look forward to hearing your reply.

This was his reply:

Dear Mr Turner,

Thank you for your reply but I have nothing further to add to my initial response.

Yours sincerely,

This was mine:

Hi Jim

Then this DM article will be posted across social media outlets to highlight the lack of impartiality and poor journalism, that the DM clearly advocates.

Let's see what the likes of Talksport/Twitter etc think of it.

Very disappointing reply.

I replied too and challenged why City were the only ones mentioned as possible offenders and the only other 2 clubs named were utd & everton as they had raised concerns about City's transfers. Also three photos all of our academy. They also mention the young goalie who is at step 4 of the 5 step rule, why? If he is at step 4 of the 5 step rule then no offence has occurred!

They deliberately put out shite like this to rile people up. Just like Collymore and other twats on TS do. It's all part of gutter journalism these days. I use their articles to line my recycling bins. Just do that or wipe your arses with them  Very Happy
