As a Man City supporter, have you ever been confronted by a fellow fan and told 'you weren't born in Manchester so you've no right to support the club'?
Anyone who has been subjected to the bigoted insult usually takes the verbal diarrhoea with a pinch of salt - don't they?
On my daily internet surf, I found two Manchester City fan website forums debating the very subject. In essence, one or two of the xenophobic posters were, like the Australian Heavy Metal group AC/DC sung way back in the 80's, 'Shot Down In Flames'.
I for one was not born in Manchester but in nearby Warrington. Did I have any choice of where I was born? - No. Do I still live in the North-West of England? - No I don't. Therefore, to some I wouldn't even qualify as a Blue.
The Metropolitan Boroughs of Manchester consist of the City of Manchester, Stockport, Tameside, Oldham, Rochdale, Bury, Bolton, Wigan, City of Salford and Old Trafford. I wonder how many of those teenage low intellectual posters, who, to my mind posted the aforementioned have ever ventured outside their own street, never mind the Boroughs.
I for one couldn't careless who says this and who says that. In fact, the thought of a small-minded spot infected ASBO ridden twit actually having the patience and intellect, oh, and the ability to read this, warms my heart.
Now, what was I saying.....
