Manchester 250: Wednesday 11 July

Streisand embraces Manchester and City gets a pep talk.

Published on July 11th 2007.


MANCHESTER MUSIC icon, Anthony Wilson has been refused a drug by the NHS which they claim hasn’t proved its worth as a remedy, despite funding other cancer patients for its use. His pals are now paying for the £3,500 a month treatment, which he is hoping will hold back the cancer.

A £10,000 MAN-HUNT is on for two men from Greater Manchester who are described by police as ‘dangerous.’ Darren Dunn, 23, from Salford, and 21-year-old Sean Devalda from Cheetham Hill are suspected of being involved in a string of armed robberies and an attack on a police officer. Rewards of £5000 per offender are being offered by Group 4 Security, whose employees have often been the targets of these robberies.

BARBRA STREISAND hit MEN Arena to what was described by one fan as ‘almost insane adulation’. Some fans amongst the 14,000 were shaking in their seats, overcome by a singer who is clearly the first lady of American music. Streisand played the large crowd beautifully bringing in Manchester United, black pudding, Manchester tart, fish and chips and bizarrely Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens and the fact that the city, was the world’s first industrial city.

THAKSIN SHINAWATRA has met his players for the first time at City’s Carrington training ground. He spoke to the squad for 15 minutes about his plans to set up City Academies all over the world. He also explained that the £50m summer transfer money will be spent on new strikers and midfielders to get them into Europe.
