Man City - the new bitters?

I actually find them too unpleasant. Bluemoon is one of the few opposition fan forums I don't find pleasure in reading. It's just mindless nastiness.

 

United and Everton fans are supposed to hate us and I revel in that, but the fact these absolute psychos have decided in a period of two years that we're their ultimate rivals is unsettling. 

 

All fan bases are tribal and hypocritical, but they have taken it to another level with their ire for us and it's not like we're even rivals. It's uncomfortable. 

Chelsea did the same a dozen or so years ago. And for the same reason. They were absolutely desperate for someone to give a fuck about them.

I thought it might be unfair to judge their fanbase based on the nutcases on bluemoon, maybe its just that forum that's full of dickheads. Much like I wouldn't like our fanbase judged by RAWK. 

 

So I had a mooch at some of their other forums, and it's exactly the same, conspiracies, blind rage, victims/dippers/murderers, and worst of all shit puns.

A company I used to do a bit of business with had a city fan in their accounts department. We used to have a bit of banter about the footie even after mansour and his billions rocked up and it was all pretty good humoured. It was all 'you'll beat us at Anfield because city never do well there' and 'we'll get one over you at the etihad' stuff.

 

But I noticed a definite twist in his 'banter' after we knocked them of the CL and it went up a notch or 3 through last season. Then he started with the 'dippers' and 'what about the 39?' kind of stuff. Of course the coach attack didnt help but I said I thought it was a disgrace and those cunts had sullied the club's name.

 

I said WTF you talking like your united chums for anyway and there's a memorial to the Heysel tragedy at Anfield if you ever bothered going to look and stopped believing the ill informed shite on the net. In the end, I just had to tell him to fuck off but if he wanted to discuss football with me again, I might give it some thought seeing as the banter we used to share.

Knew some City fan who my brother was good mates with. He was a good lad and would regularly come to Liverpool to drink with us. Used to watch our games with us and hated Man Utd with a passion. The enemy of my enemy is my friend etc. 

 

As soon as City got some money he became a massive twat and suddenly hated scousers. Went completely off the radar and lost contact with everyone. 

 

Saw him at Chester zoo a few years ago with his kids and completely ignored me even when I said alright to him.

Yep, when they were low they liked us. Now they are quite honestly as bad as the worst blues.  Now it's all heysel and murderers. They should fuck off back to challenging gillingham in a play off

I think it's when you live overseas that you really see who the big clubs are.

 

Obviously most of the people you meet are United or Liverpool, but a good few Arsenal fans, even a Chelsea or Tottenham fan now and again. The smaller clubs you don't see as much, I've met a random few, like Watford or West Ham here and there.

 

But I've literally never met a City fan. Even when I lived in England, albeit on the east coast in NE Lincolnshire, I never met one. So it's only on the internet that I have experienced what everyone is talking about, this new bitterness.

 

They're just a medium-sized club who got a bunch of money and think that makes them huge. Even Everton are bigger than City!

Our rivalry with United and Everton is quite toxic at the moment but they also have their fair share of good supporters that you can converse with rationally, there's also an underlying mutual respect between us and the Mancs (albeit begrudgingly) due to the success of both clubs.

 

With City it's just full on hatred, they decided to thrive on every nasty stereotype given to us and it's quite pitiful to see. They know deep down, no matter how much money they spend and how many trophies they win they'll always be a tin pot club that can't fill their own stadium despite fielding some of the world's best players.

I've said it before that rivalries are like friendships.

 

You've got your real friends, who you stick with, regardless of changing circumstances, just like we've got proper rivals in Everton and Man United. 

 

Then there are your work friends: people who, even though you might get along well enough with them, you basically only give a shit about because circumstances have temporarily brought you together and when those circumstances change you'll more or less forget about them. Man City - just like Leeds, Forest, Arsenal, Chelsea and others before them - are the rivalry equivalent of work friends.

If I worked with cunts like City, I'd have handed my notice in pronto.

Not sure the sneering at attendances is a good look....a lot of people have just had the expense that is Christmas and a lot of people (myself included) have not yet been paid since before Christmas.

 

There has been a ridiculous amount of games, and they have yet another in midweek.

 

Working class fans from a working class city....

 

Plenty of other things we can mock the horrible twats about, but for me that one is not on.

They were offering kids tickets for £1 and adult for 15. Anfield would be full 8times over if that were the case, even though I agree with the general sentiment you're conveying.
