Come back with what? You didn't address the comment to me in the first place. 

Do your “friends”  refer to you as RTD?

 

In your defence to support a once great side it must be hard be heartbreaking to see that shower you have now and must eat you alive watching you’re beloved going backwards as the two mentioned play in a different league. 

 

Guess thats why having never experienced that kind of success with with my lot I can appreciate what I’m watching without feeling envy and jealousy and show some humility. 

 

Hope thats not too arsey for you RTD.

I have supported a non league side for years.

 

I also remember the less successful days of Fergie, and enjoy the journey we are on right now. Everybody loves a comeback story don't they?

City fans are the football equivalent of the Lotto Lout. Remember him? They struck it lucky with an obscene cash injection, but it's not bought them any more self worth or class. 

We know and will never forget that we got lucky with a rich owner, But if you think you RAG's have class you're in a delusional dream land

But it isn't same, same as it's not what we said.

 

For absolute clarity. We would love to win the CL. It's just not at the top of the pecking order

If you care about becoming a big club it should be your priority no?

 

Sometimes I think Pep and all that cash are wasted on you.

I forgot... the low bar set by the fans is probably another reason City haven't pushed on.

Not bothered about winning the CL... just like the Lotto Lout happy to wallow in his derelict mansion, racing cars with his mates. It's all he knows. 

What's your beef with City's fans? Why do you feel your fans are better? How do you gauge that?

 

About our fans...big deal. All of this <deleted> coming from a guy who supports a club which throughout my lifetime has the worst hooligans in English football - ManU classy fans, don't think so.

 

Think you spend too much time coming on here and trying to wind us up. I know it must be hard for you watching the continuing decline of the once might ManU but the Samaritans are out there if you get desperate 😉

 

 

You're one of those guys on here that reads but doesn't understand what we say, so let me state it again. We would love to win the CL - or any trophy for that matter - but would PREFER to win the PL over the CL for the reasons we have stated repeatedly.

Do you honestly think any City fan spends any time thinking or caring "about becoming a big club" [i'm not even to sure i know what defines "a big club" for you] cause i can assure you we do not. Like all fans of any club, City fans just want to win games and trophies (and have a good time going to the games), if that happens great, if it doesn't happen we continue supporting City.

 

The club's owners / management care about becoming a successful club on the pitch and financially / business wise off the pitch. Have we achieved that during this past 10 years since they took over? Well on the pitch we have been the most successful club in England during the decade. Off the pitch, i just  read earlier today that we are 6th on Deloitte's latest list (revenue) and City or Liverpool are forecast to catch-up and overtake ManU next season on the list if you don't get in to Europe. So based on the past 10 years are we are a "big club" to use your phrase? You tell me.

 

Based on progression year-on-year though, we are in a very healthy position mate. How about ManU...tittter? 🙂

Amazing that out of nowhere you able to become a such a huge profit earner, it almost defies logic, trends, historical evidence, a new precedent.

Not good enough today with simple things. Didn't look like winning. Frustrating then we looked like nicking it with a couple of great Aguero goals. But we can't defend can we. Fair result i reckon.

 

What's wrong with Sterling? Been bobbins for weeks.
