Morrissey Asks Johnny Marr to Stop Talking About Him in ‘Clickbait’ Interviews

Morrissey has penned an open letter to his former bandmate Johnny Marr asking him to “stop using my name as clickbait” in interviews and to “move on.” The pair, who along with bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce formed the highly influential Manchester rock act The Smiths, have had a nonexistent relationship following the band’s breakup in 1987, but have sniped at each other in the press since.

It is a polite and calmly measured request: Would you please stop mentioning my name in your interviews?” “Would you please, instead, discuss your own career, your own unstoppable solo achievements and your own...

Clubber Attempts to Sneak Into The Warehouse Project Using Homemade “Lifetime Access Pass”

When it comes to sneaking into venues without paying, one Manchester raver went particularly bold in their approach. At the door check for the “Adam Beyer Presents Drumcode” event at The Warehouse Project in Manchester, one clubber perplexed security when he presented a laminated “lifetime access pass” as his ticket for entry. Sacha Lord, Co-Founder of Warehouse Project, admitted the fake pass caused confusion at the door, but the team eventually realized the card was homemade. “A new one last night,” Lord tweeted. “Someone tried to get in, by making themselves a ‘Lifetime Access Pass to WHP and Parklife.’ Caused a bit of confusion, but impressive!” That could have been the end of the man’s efforts, but as it turns...

Manchester City legend Kun Aguero to play backup role at Barcelona

Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero will play a backup role at Barcelona next term. The striker spent 11 trophy-laden years in Manchester, winning the Premier League five times and the FA Cup once. He is fourth in the all-time Premier League goalscoring charts with 184 strikes in 275 appearances. The ‘perfect’ combined England and Italy Euro 2020 XI Despite his incredible record, Barca have warned Aguero that he could spend a significant amount of time on the bench next season. That’s according to Spanish outlet AS (via Daily Mail), who claim that the Argentinian has already accepted the role. Barca are worried about Aguero’s fitness after he was limited to 12 top flight appearances in 2020/21. He suffered with a knee injury at the start of the campaign, a hamstring problem in November an...

Gary Lineker expects Manchester clubs or PSG to win Harry Kane race

Gary Lineker believes that both Manchester clubs and Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to land Harry Kane in the summer, although he expects Daniel Levy to fight hard to keep Tottenham’s star man. Kane recorded 22 goals and 14 assists in the Premier League last season to secure both the golden boot and the playmaker award, despite Spurs finishing in seventh place in the table. As reported by Goal on May 17, the Spurs forward, who will captain England at the upcoming European Championship in the summer, wants to leave the north Londoners and Lineker can understand his desire for trophies. “I think that it would be worrying [to see him dominate the league if he joins Manchester City],” Lineker told Goal. “I would love to see him at Barcelona but they are going for [Sergio] Aguero and ar...

Barcelona announce the signing of Eric Garcia

Finally, the signing of Eric Garcia has been officially announced by Barcelona. The 20-year-old centre-back has been linked to the club for almost a year now. He came very close to signing for his boyhood club last summer before the talks broke down on the deadline day, as well as January of this year. Garcia had spent nine years at the youth level in Barça before moving to Manchester City in 2017. The youngster has been captain of almost all the youth Barça teams he played at. He was also the captain of the U-19 team of Manchester City. After a triumphant spell with Manchester City in England, Garcia will return to Catalonia, securing the Premier League winners medal twice. Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola, rates the young centre-back very highly. When asked about not selecting Ga...

Manchester City willing to break £100 million barrier to sign Aston Villa skipper

Manchester City are willing to break the £100m barriers to sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish. The Daily Mail says Grealish has long been admired by Pep Guardiola and City’s manager wants the 25-year-old at the hub of what he hopes he will become the second great team of his reign in Manchester. Villa rewarded Grealish last September with a lucrative new contract and the club captain still has four years to run on his deal. His importance to Dean Smith’s side is huge and, as such, they would not entertain selling their local hero for anything less than a new British transfer record. City have not had the most expensive player in the Premier League since they signed Robinho for £32.5m at the start of the Abu Dhabi era in September 2008 but there is recognition that recruiting Grealish w...

Watch This DJ Launch a Blowup Doll Into the Crowd at a Socially Distanced Manchester Rave

One attendee at a recent Manchester rave went home with more than just good memories. And more memories to—ahem—create. UK-based DJ and electronic music producer Next Generation Noise recently appeared at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse for the socially distanced rave, which was headlined by legendary hardstyle artist Darren Styles. At one point during his DJ set, Next Generation Noise decided it was time to send it. And by “it,” we mean a gigantic blowup doll, which he launched into the crowd with the swiftness of Randy Johnson. No word on whether or not the raver on the receiving end actually left the venue with the inflatable sex doll, but there’s no doubt it’d be one of the most unique souvenirs ever brought home from a show. Check o...

Tottenham speak to two Bundesliga managers as they hunt for new boss

Reuters Tottemham Hotspur have reportedly stepped up their search of finding a new manager by speaking to Hansi Flick and Ralf Rangnick. The North London side currently have former midfielder Ryan Mason at the helm on an interim basis following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month. Mason has won three out of his four Premier League matches in charge – helping Spurs climb to sixth in the table. And with European football looking all-but secure for next season, Daniel Levy is now turning his attention to finding a permanent boss to take over in the summer. Tottenham were keen on luring Julian Nagelsmann away from RB Leipzig, but it has been confirmed that he will take over from Hansi Flick at Bayern Munich. According to the Guardian, Spurs have spoken to Flick about him potentially moving...

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother ready to convince him to join Sporting Lisbon

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother said she will talk to the Portugal international and ‘try to convince’ him to return to Sporting CP. The Leoes have qualified for the Champions League by winning the Primeira Liga for the first time in 19 years and Dolores Aveiro, Cristiano’s mother, said she will do everything she can to make the superstar return to the club. Ronaldo started his professional career with the Verde e Brancos, before he moved to Manchester United in August 2003. He then moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 and was picked up by the Bianconeri after nine years in the Spanish capital. His future at the Allianz Stadium is uncertain, as Juventus are struggling to finish among the teams in the Champions League and Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from the club. The hypothes...

Edinson Cavani offered £50K pay rise to stay at Manchester United

Manchester United plan to keep Edinson Cavani at Old Trafford for the 2021-22 season by offering the striker a wage increase of £50,000, according to reports. The Uruguayan has cemented himself as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice striker during the second half of the 2020-21 campaign, playing a pivotal goalscoring role both domestically and in Europe – most notably in the Europa League semi-final tie with AS Roma, against whom he scored four goals over two legs. United do not have the option to extend the 12-month deal Cavani signed last summer, and it has been generally assumed the 34-year-old would return to South America this summer. However, Cavani can choose to add another year to his current deal, and according to The Sun, United plan to give the 34-year-old extra incentive to rem...
