    Well in our case we didn't really "crash and burn" till 19/20 and apart from our first season back under QSF we were largley ignored (which to some extent, helped us). Luton will be the MotD sweethearts for the whole season. Burnley and Sheff Utd will have been the "seen it done it" sort of promoted side. You will no doubt get the "awww, they were so unlucky...", "what a togetherness they have..." after being slapped 9-0 at the Etihad. It will probably go on all season, when they will be portrayed as "so unlucky to go down" as they rival Derby's 19pt PL lowest ever points haul.

    Lineker and Crooks cannot stand us - any side would apart from us would be "more pleasing on the eye". Today if your not a newly born PL side or one of the "Top 6" nobody outside of your own fanbase, especially the media will even notice.

    Incredibly it was far less than that. It was 11 pts!

    And Sunderland themselves have “beaten” that, plus Villa and Huddersfield.

    From Popbitch:

    TBF to Noel I do remember him being interviewed on the BBCWS's, excellent, "World Football" and he sounded like a genuine City fan (also I later worked with a load of City fans, for around a year pre- and post-takeover who all swore the Gallaghers were resonably frequent attendees before they made it 'big') where he spoke about being talked out of buying City by his accountant. I was really taken by what he said about his style of management "'re 'in', you're 'out', you're 'out', you can stay, you can make the tea..."

    Telling juxtaposition today of City celebrating their treble while Wigan are served with a winding up order.

    Absolute best and heartbreaking example of having all the money and power in the game to one who struggles to even pay their own players. The financial divide in the game is disgusting and will only get worse as time goes on, and more billionaires buy other top clubs. Leaving the little ones behind to crumble into dust. Grass Roots, playing on a Sunday out with Jenna and Alyce when I was 14 in Cassiobury Park having a fun kick around. Football was still a game of business then, but it's gone off the rails. It's difficult to even call it a sport anymore. Man City fill their silent ground with plastic fans with half of them living in London. Proper fans' go to watch their team play, living an dying for the club they love. I don't know the ins and outs of their plight, but it's always about money... I wish them the best and hope they can come out the other side.

    Tbf I think Man C still have a good “proper” support mainly from the area but guess that might change as they get more successful and normal fans are priced out of the game .

    Funnily enough I sat next to a guy wearing a City shirt on the tube in central London last night. He was about 30. I resisted the temptation to ask if he was wearing a United shirt ten years ago.
