<b>Wednesday 3 September:</b> Shooting in Chorlton, Ronaldo sought by 'Middle Eastlands' and Noel Gallagher wants to play at the Abu Dhabi party

Published on September 3rd 2008.

A SHOOTING took place in Chorlton last night. A 19-year-old man was shot in the arm during the incident on Nell Lane. Mauldeth Road West was closed at its junctions with Nell Lane and Sandy Lane while police investigated. Greater Manchester Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.

NOEL GALLAGHER has offered to play a gig to welcome Manchester City's new owners. On hearing of the multi-million pound investment made by the Abu Dhabi United Group, the Oasis star told BBC Radio Five Live: “Can I just throw my hat in the ring here and tell him that I'm available for any after-show parties he wants me to play, if he's throwing that kind of money around.”

A DRUG FARM has been uncovered in Salford, disguised as a legitimate business with a sign titled MLS Plastic Piping. Police raided the premises, in Kansas Avenue, yesterday and seized hundreds of cannabis plants which were being cultivated with lighting, ventilators, and irrigation channels for mass production.

MANCHESTER CITY owners, the Abu Dhabi United Group are believed to be gearing up to put in a bid for Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo in the January transfer window. Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim of the Abu Dhabi United Group has said they will be prepared to pay £120m for the United winger to move to Eastlands, or 'Middle Eastlands' as it is now being called. The new owners aim for City to become the biggest club in the world.

Someone should tell The Abu Dhabi Group that you don't necessarily become 'the biggest club in the world' because you're the richest club in the world. They obviously know nothing about England's rich football heritage and what football was like before the millions ruined it
