    Moving past the concerning lack of a genuine social presence, the company’s dubious origins – it appears that social accounts are currently run from the United Arab Emirates – would certainly suggest, at the very least, that something’s a little off about the Sky Blues’ latest partnership.


    “Manchester City’s website claims that 8XBet was founded in 2018 by one ‘Ryan Li’,” Jack Kerr, Philippe Auclair, Andy Brown and Steve Menary wrote for Josimar.

    “Yet the 8xbet.com domain was for sale as of November last year, as the Wayback Machine shows.

    “The .com domain for 978bet, the bookmaker’s previous name, was for sale in 2019 and blank in November 2020.

    “There are a number of mirror sites associated with each of these brands: but the ones that we checked were either registered in 2020 (for 978Bet) or around Christmas last year (for 8XBet).

    “This means that, if it was operating in 2018 as claimed, it may well have been doing so illegally: the bookmaker is licensed in Curacao through a company called 978 Tech NV, and Open Corporates shows that this was only registered in March 2021.

    “As for its founder, when we searched for “Ryan Li” “978Bet” on Google, the solitary result was Josimar’s previous article on the bookmaker.

    “A search for “Ryan Li” “8XBet” returns no results prior to March 2022, when he began to be named in promotional-style news articles announcing a partnership between 8XBet and Teddy Sheringham.

    “At least two journalists who quoted ‘Ryan Li’ did not speak to him but received quotes via email from a British public relations company they were not at liberty to name.”



    The murky nature of rules around time-barred offences means Pep Guardiola’s men have largely gotten away with their allegedly dodgy dealings off the pitch.

    That being said, should such investigations gather traction as far as any official bodies are concerned, one would have to think the incumbent champions would be under threat of serious sanctions.

    Erling Haaland is earning close to £900,000 per week at Manchester City, Sportsmail has learned.

    The Norwegian superstar, who has set the Premier League on fire since his £51m arrival from Borussia Dortmund, is picking up the staggering sum which makes him by far the highest-paid player in the country.

    It is understood that the 22-year-old gets a basic salary which is in line with the other higher earners at the Etihad Stadium. However, a series of substantial, almost-guaranteed bonuses see his weekly wage surge beyond the £850,000 mark.


    Erling Haaland earns a £865,000-A-WEEK at Man City | Daily Mail Online

    Cheaper than Nunez :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    City quietly going about the process of killing football and destroying any semblance of a wage structure.

    Daily Mail. Barely one up from The Sun for me. I'm not clicking that shite.

    But it's clear he'll be on stupid money. Currently the world's best player, playing for a team for who the words "financial budget" means precisely f**k all.

    That would be some slump to get anywhere near that vile f*cking rag. I cant even type their name without retching ,so you're a bit more forgiving than me fella. I get your point though, they're all capable of offense.

    No. It's more a reflection of my view of The Mail. I can assure you my view of the former will match yours.

    It's OK though, because he cost less than Nunez ;)

    However, a series of substantial, almost-guaranteed bonuses see his weekly wage surge beyond the £850,000 mark.

    In otherwords... £50,000 for tying his shoe laces alone, £50,000 for wiping his feet when entering the stadium. £100,000 for putting his shirt on the correct way and so on ;)

    I think it's less about his appearance and more the fact he's too good to actually be human. How old is he? 23? He's making the Ronaldo and Messi of that age look like amateurs. He's either a robot or on some fkin amazing performance enhancing drugs. Either way, he needs banning.

    Not satisfied with the infinite money code in Football Manager, Guardiola has found a way to set his player's stats over 100.

    I also reckon Keane could see the future. He wasn't aiming for Alfie's legs - he simply missed. He was really aiming for his bollocks to try and stop this happening.
