Vital Man City regular, BlueWolfie sent us the following:
I don't profess to be an expert, nevertheless...
I know I have harped on about this before via the Vital Manchester City forums, so forgive me for continuing with my rant but have journalists forgot the art of writing?
Now I understand that, just like anything else in this world there are people that are better than others, but if the main part of your job is to write in your mother-tongue, you'd think that a journalist would be good at it. Alas, no.
Y'see, these days with countless bloggers everywhere, newspapers know they have to rely on sensationalism to get people to actually read stuff, just so their work stands out from the over-burgeoning crowd. And the World of Football is no different.
'The £770million Manchester City started today's game with £300million worth of money-grabbing 'talent' (and let's not forget, the £120million or so on the bench). In the seventh minute, the £25million striker (who professed wanting to make love to his new team) let loose a screamer that went just over the bar, and head, of the six-year veteran of the game, who plays for the love of the sport and not for any financial reward.'
Okay, maybe not exactly like this, but you get my point don't you?
We are now, even if the papers don't openly admit it, one of the so-called 'Big Boys' (an article about that is coming later), and as such they all want to abuse us verbally at every chance they get. You could say that the traditional four don't get this much abuse, but they haven't done anything that these 'writers' can complain about (a favourite English past-time).
I really don't think it has anything to do with City muscling in where they don't belong, just that these sport 'writers' are lazy and inept, and City are the flavour of the month.
My suggestion to you all (regardless of who you support) is to ignore the newspapers and stick with your local Vital site, or head off to a dedicated football site that actually reports the football (not, I repeat NOT Tribal or Goal.com), and not who your favourite player is now dating, and what she was wearing last week when she bought something.
