Richard Dunne - Dunne Deal
Soccer City FC
Our captain and fan favourite has just signed a new four year contract - PHEW and thank goodness. Mark Hughes' second signing of his new managership and to me, of greater importance than the Jo deal. A huge sigh of relief is heard over the City of Manchester Stadium (CoMS) and fans everywhere can now let their shoulders relax (me included). Dunnie is: a proud wearer of his number 22 sky blue shirt, a quiet but determined presence in our defence and the back-bone of the team. Who was it that got out of his sick bed and played 'out of his skin' in the Old Trafford derby (breaking the 34 year spell since City's last win there!)? I couldn't envisage a City team without him - who'd be able to fill his boots? Simple answer, no-one, only pretenders.
Thank you Mark, for making Richard Dunne's contract renewal one of your priorities and bigger thanks to Dunnie for allowing us the undeniable pleasure of his presence at CoMS (and for the duration of his new contract, our captain - that's a cert. isn't it Mark!).
Over the Blue Moon once again!
