Don’t Believe Everything You Read, City Fans

Manchester City fans have been less giddy recently, following the madness that was the transfer deadline day in the summer. Their club became the richest in the World and were dropping bids for the best players all over the World. Robinho was the only one they could lure away, given that he was so desperate to leave Real Madrid and wasn’t allowed to join Chelsea.

Still, that didn’t stop them from going a bit mental with the transfer rumours. They honestly believed they could bring in the best players in the World simply because they had money. One lad even got ‘Kaka’ tattooed to his chest!

Then they started a petition to keep Cristiano Ronaldo away from their club. Seriously. They really believed they could get him to sign but they really didn’t want him to.

Looks like someone didn’t get the memo though.

    Jay and Paul Calf, you couldn’t even sell all your tickets before you started cutting prices! This has been the case long before this season started. Trust me, I know a couple of honest City fans who show you muppets up by actually going to watch their team.

    Jay, you’re a fine one to talk about atmosphere. Have you ever been to Boo Camp, mate? I tell you what, I’ll help you blow up a few of those inflatables and show the world what a massive club you are.

    Talljonny, don’t worry about how we’ll pay our debt. The prize money earned from winning trophies (those big shiny metallic things, you plank) and the coffers from us actually going to our games will help take care of it.

    “Time will tell, and yes, your £80million for Ronaldo will probably cover the interest on your debt. Great way to run a club”
    Great way to run a club, should we get someone like Shinawatra who’s government faced allegations of corruption, authoritarianism, treason, conflicts of interest, acting non-diplomatically, and muzzling of the press as well as being accused of tax evasion, selling national assets to international investors. Also to boot Independent bodies, including Amnesty International criticized his human rights record.

    Difference is that we can always attract investors… i remember you lot and your Fanny Lee… you were calling him the Messiah… blah blah blah… he just milked ya to keep his bog roll company going..

    Then there is Frank Sinatra… ffs… dictator, murderer…

    U lot have had more owners than a fuckin 1972 MK 1 Ford Escort.

  5. OTRed says:

    Finally other fans who can match the Liverpool fans in stupidity and delusion. Well done you small minded fans.

  6. OTRed says:

    I also forgot to ask, what an IDIOT, you never get a name on the back of your shirt without the deal being confirmed first, unless of course he’s just a City fan who just admires Ronaldo, which would be weird.

    Olusanjo Well impressed with your English who wrote it for you. It was St Georges Day yesterday did you celebrate.

  8. Citytillidie123 says:

    OTRed maybe his name is C Ronaldo ?? :)

  9. City fan says:

    Guess we`ll just buy who the f**k we want.
    You`ll just have too live with it.
    Money talks you wouldn`t be where you are now if it didn`t!
    You can`t buy Kaka/Ronaldo erm wait a minute?YOU DID?

    all you united fans are scared of man city actually challengeing you in the future, lets b honest we had our money 2 spend for 1 day in the summer transfer window n brought in a world class player, robinho, n kaka was never going 2 come 2 us in the january transfer window because every body knows no big players move in january, lets just wait n see who we actually do bring in after the seasons ended cos lets b honest money does talk n we will bring in some world class players 2 our club n show the world who man city are, n 1 more thing as soon as fergie leaves, you will b nothing, id say 5 years time city will b challenging for the premier league and then uniteds run of 33years will hav started.

  11. Marq says:

    We’ve start our run already shaun11. more than a decade and counting…
    of success

  12. five says:

    What can United do if fans from other countries start liking them and the rich “prawnies” start to go to the stadium? it comes with being succesful…look at Chelsea although they were a big team after Abrahmovic took over they become a HUGE global team and theres loads of glory hunters supporting them as well…same goes for Arsenal/Liverpool. Foreign fans come with success I am guessing thats why you City fans seem to hate them considering you wouldnt know a thing about success

    English Pride – Classy. Racist cunt.

    City fan – “You can`t buy Kaka/Ronaldo erm wait a minute?YOU DID?”

    I can’t recall United buying Kaka? We did buy Ronaldo but for 12.5 million. Idiot.

    Shaun11 – Scared? Which “World class” players are gonna join you mugs when you won’t even be playing in Europa or whatever that mickey mouse cup is called, never mind the Champions League. Joker.

  14. Blue minge says:

    Unlike all these bitter utd fans City have got a sense of humour, when it comes to all this hype about who we are signing it wasn’t the fans saying it.
    The press are to blame for getting giddy because we have got a few quid, City fans know it will take time to progress and one day maybe be as good as the Mighty reds.
    I just can’t wait for summer because this will get the utd fans going, we are going to sign George Best and his dad for £150,000 000.
    Just remember you reds, you heard it here first.

    Paul the Red

    United class club, let’s ask the Munich victims and their nearest and dearest how the club showed class by helping them shall we? Perhaps not because the truth hurts.

    And when a match was finally arranged to at last put some money their way which United “great” diminished the pot by taking out his “expenses,” bonjour Eric, your cheque is in the post! You couldn’t make it up.

    Oh the source for this is

    The Lost Babes: Manchester United and the Forgotten Victims of Munich by Jeff Connor, just so you can’y throw your usual nonsense our way, you know the one “City liars”

    Have a read you might learn something although I doubt. It will be a struggle finding your way out of your own derrieres to find some light to read by.
