Never mind Media City, how about Higher Broughtonwood where all the best dramas are happening? And did you know there was a secret bar in Salford that's incredibly famous?

All is revealed in Salford Media Scene…

As a red i would like to congratulate the blues for having the moral courage to ask Mr Cook to resign after sending his disgracveful e mail. Its just a real shame and slur on Salford that the NWDAs board member Mr John Merry didnt have the same courage when it was reported on this site that his CeO sent an equally disgusting email. Shame on Mr Merry for this lack of moral courage and thanks to the Star for bringing it to light. Im a red but lets celebrate whichever team brings the championship back to manchester and if it happens to be City at least Cook wont be there to sully their achievements. Good riddance to bad rubbish and its just a shame the same ethics dont apply amongst the higher echelons of our civil service thanks to people like Merry.
