Grudgingly have to admit they are good to watch at times but I can't stand city either.No amount of Middle Eastern billions will ever convince me theyre not a shit club.
Cant stand them.
I’m happy for the long standing City fans. There’s a few of the boys from the ‘Brook here who used to take serious stick but followed them through the thin years from way back, going to games at Maine Road.
For the bandwagon jumpers, whatever.
It reminds me of the time Chelsea first won the league. My then neighbour was a lovely gentleman in his then 70s who had supported Chelsea all his life. His response to me saying “I bet you’re a happy man” that night they won it was “I am, but let’s be honest - we bought it”. Wise words which sum up football even more so these days.
Wait, they care about the Champions League all of a sudden?
I'm old enough to remember a half-empty Etihad for UCL games.
