    Joining the club

    How do young lads join CCFC? Are there trials, or do you have to be scouted?

    you're put into you're own age group and they look at you in contrast to people your own age. i think the lower limit is like 14 or something, i dont think city do the schoolboy leagues.

    this "open trial" this only for young lads or car players like meself go along? 23 yr old
    Strachan on Rooney:
    It's an incredible rise to stardom, at 17 you're more likely to get a call from Michael Jackson than Sven Goran Eriksson.

    Under 16's and 17's I think. That's the way it was about 4 or 5 years ago anyway.

    I believe $hl did this for a friendly against Leicester? IMO, it looks really cheap and unprofessional of the club, for the sake of a grand or so.

    the example i was using was an english team last season, who a supporter bought a name on the player register, but took no actuall part in any of the matches.
    he got the oppertunity to have his name down in the teams page in the programe!

    Spot on there, Jofyisgod. Reminds me of that sap in F1 a couple of years ago who was only allowed to drive cos his fan base in Japan was nuts about him and bought sh1tloads of F1 merchandise.
