On Tuesday, the Manchester City official website claimed that they had already sold out the weekend’s fixture against Fulham. This obviously came as a surprise, given that just 30,000 blues bothered to show up for their League Cup semi-final against Liverpool a few weeks ago, with tickets being sold for as little as a tenner on the day.

“With every home league game selling out so far this season, becoming a Blue member with ticket priority will give you that all important chance to get tickets for the remaining home games this season.”


For some reason, Manchester City’s official Twitter account claimed that the ground was full. Why do City fans always lie?

Welcome to the Etihad. Sit where you like.
