Tevez To Stay In Manchester

Tevez To Stay In Manchester

I'm afraid to say that it actually makes sense; even though if he really had as much respect for the fans as he claims to have, Tevez would sign for Chelsea but career-wise Citeh makes much more sense.

Because it now seems certain that he'll join them as part of the new owners' desperate attempts to regularly fill that soulless stadium they have. And there Tevez, who rejected the might of United, can be the hero, the number one, the saviour as it looks certain that Robinho can't fulfil that role. But he might blossom with Carlitos.

At Chelsea, he would have been in the same situation as at United. So in the short term he made the correct decision. The wisest thing, however, would have been to move abroad: Tevez probably hasn't realised yet that even though, as I said, moving to City makes sense for rational reasons, it is certain to do more harm than good in the long term. He might quickly become a forgotten man if he can't live up to the aforementioned expectations...

And anyway, City is simply a hole for good footballers. Few could escape from that place with untarnished reputation...

Pathetic attempt to make a case for going after the money, but then that is what former Man U players like to do, there is an abundance of them around from Beckham to possibly Tevez.

In many ways City makes sense, because there he'll be able to get a first-team place which is seemingly why he turned United down... but definitely don't think he'll be there long unless City suddenly start winning trophies.

I dont think a move across the city is a good idea. A London club would make more sense

"Souless City - Prawn Sandwiches United". Agreed. Best thing would be to dust off and nuke from orbit. Start again in 50 yrs. On a more serious note, I think Rooney will be deployed more centrally, and you'll miss Tevez's energy and backtracking (as well as goalscoring) from the flanks. Then again - for a player that was considered the best player in Brazil (and ARGENTINIAN!) during his year with Corinthians (as a striker) - I was always perplexed as to why he wasn't given more time up front. If you wanted to carry on where you left off, you'd need to sign Ribery and someone like Benzema. I don't think Fergie will do that (both want to go to Real) or he'd have done it by now.
