the Britalian Milan site for pure Beady Eye, Pretty Green, Oasis, and City fans

the world's richest club, Manchester City owners buy Maine Road pub for fans, the sheikh to get Oasis together for a gig

MANCHESTER - City fans revel in their team being the world’s richest club. Now they can boast they also own the world’s richest pub.
For the club has paid around £100,000 to snap up former Blues legend Mike Summerbee’s run-down boozer in the shadow of its Eastlands stadium.
The pub is called The Maine Road after City’s former home (theatre of legendary Oasis' concerts) before their controversial move to rent the 47,726-seater former Commonwealth Games stadium from Manchester City Council.
When the team was taken over by Abu Dhabi United Group less than two years ago City fans, who had struggled for decades without success, were delighted.
The leading player in the new ownership group is Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family whose fabulous wealth is estimated at about £560billion (!) But with owners coming from the “dry” United Arab Emirates the last thing City fans expected was for their club to fork out for a boozer.
One world-weary City fan, store worker Barry Richardson, 49, of Stockport, Cheshire, said: “Now when people call us bitter Blues it’ll be because the club owns a pub that will probably serve the best bitter on the planet.
“We’re already telling United fans that when they put petrol into their cars they are paying the wages of our players as most of the sheikh’s money comes from oil.
“And we’d love it if when the Reds have a pint of beer they’re also contributing to the future success of City.
“We’ve waited a long time for enduring success. Now we’re finally getting there.”
His pal, council worker Chris Burnett, 54, said:
“It would be perfect for the launch party if the sheikh could get Liam and Noel Gallagher together again for an Oasis gig.
“It would probably be the best launch party on the planet and we’d all love it.”

Tomorrow, Monday, Man City are in Milan again for another decisive offer to buy Mario Balotelli.

Oasis @ Maine Road, it's good to be back...
