Vital Manchester City regular, BlueWolfie sent us the following article.
Prime Minister Harold Wilson once said...'a week in politics is a long time', and the very same can be said for the World of Football.
It was during the last two weeks that newspaper websites were filled to the rafters about, 'City not being up to the challenge', 'City players are despicable', 'City are a joke', 'City are ruining football', etc, and so on.
Fast forward to today, and what do we have? 'City could actually be going somewhere this season', 'City are making the traditional big four stand up and take note', 'City players have humility', 'City could win the league', and so on, and so on.
So why is this?
Could it be that journalists like to make a mountain out of a mole-hill and condemn the club because, well, that's just what they do? Or is it that City are actually going places and the hacks are so used to criticising us they can't get out of the habit?
Actually, it's neither.
For the most part newspaper journalists are, alas not too clever, and like life, they want it to have a cushy life as possible (don't we all?). However, in this day and age they are more likely to sit back and let something happen so that they may jump on it and claim it as an exclusive - ignoring the fact that everyone else is running with it.
Why has City not been mentioned so much in the last few days? Because Pompey are heading towards nuclear implosion that's why, and for no other reason. The story is there and it is there to be exploited, and exploited it very much is being.
So, we must accept that there are those out there who fall into one of three categories:
1. They like City.
2. They don't like City.
3. They don't really care one way or the other.
What that means for the club is they must keep their heads down and do nothing, which of course isn't going to happen because MCFC are attempting to break the Big Four.
So, the next time you read something you don't like about our beloved club, just remember it is only because there is nothing else to write about, hence the use of excessive CAPTITAL LETTERS and dozens of exclamation marks.
I have a mental image of a hack. It is a middle-aged bloke, balding with grey hair at either side, a beer belly who smells of rotting food and stale tobacco. I wonder if i'm far off the mark?
