Manchester City Ruins Football
Vital Manchester City member, italia7482 sent us the following.
My beloved Manchester City, a team I have supported for 33 long years of my life is under attack!! not from the jokes about us being a comedy club or how we are a farce of football, but because we dared to be bought by someone with money, vision and intelligence, a cool head in the sometimes ridiculous world of football. Someone who kept their nerve and DIDN'T sack the manager after a few bad results, (take note Chelsea).
A man who took the club OUT of debt, not enslave us with hundreds of millions of pounds of it! (take note Manchester United).
Someone who doesn't meddle publicly with the club and try and make the manager look a fool in a petty politics game (take note Liverpool).
A club that doesn't bleat about how hard it is done by and the rough that is throw at it despite the vitriol aimed against it (take note Arsenal).
A club that isn't prepared to sit on its laurels and surrender the prize it aims for during the season, that has ambition (take note Aston Villa & Tottenham).
A club that plays attractive and breath taking football at times (take note Stoke, Bolton and Blackburn).
These days football is money, its a sad statement to make, but I'm sure Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal fans will agree, the fury vented at my club for nothing more than daring to be better than openly wanting to buy players that improve the team (a ridiculous idea in modern football I know!?!).
The more they all shout and scream about the harm we are doing the more convinced I am that what we are doing is right, after all if they didn't see us as a genuine threat, why talk about us at all?
Football is confined now to the sweating, debt ridden Champions League beholden, so called elite clubs, clubs that know should they lose their Champions League status it will mean very lean times indeed.
The money grabbing, nepotism and inbreeding that is rife throughout UEFA and to a lesser degree FIFA, and that has almost completely eaten the credibility of the FA in this very own country, an association that is SUPPOSED to support English clubs, not attack them.
Then there is us, a club that is at least trying to do things the right way (no agents, no unsettling players in the media, no public statements about the players we are after although they are still with their clubs) and we are vilified, lambasted and lampooned. It is enough to make you sick, but it doesn't because this is OUR club, we are still its heartbeat, its lifeblood and we will be for evermore.
If football is take the money, act with indifference to your peers, keep the little guy in his place at all costs, to hurl abuse at its dignity, its calm and the fact that it thinks in level headed terms, to maintain the status quo for the sake of the profits, then I fore one am glad that we are ruining football.
