Football: ROYLE AND CITY STILL CAN'T AGREE.

JOE ROYLE has failed in a secret out-of-court bid to settle his pounds 750,000 golden handshake lawsuit against Manchester City following his sacking in May 2001.

Royle is having his legal costs partly funded by the Professional Footballers' Association. That led to City chairman David Bernstein blasting: "I am surprised that the PFA should back such a frivolous case."

PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor revealed lawyers had tried to mediate but their approaches were rebuffed. Royle and his legal team believe he is entitled to pounds 750,000, but City remain adamant they won't cough up more than pounds 150,000.
