Street Of Shame Hacks Relaunch Anti-City Campaign

Street Of Shame Hacks Relaunch Anti-City Campaign



The Community Shield derby weekend has coincided with the relaunch of a tidal wave of anti Manchester City propaganda. Tin hats out for the lads again, Blues...

Previously success starved City fans have become used to being reviled and have taken on the 'mercenaries will never gel' to 'you'll never sign top players' to 'you'll never win anything' jibes with relish.

Yet this week a legion of Wapping's finest who were left absolutely crestfallen at being proved utterly wrong throughout last season by Roberto Mancini and his men have been going after City with renewed vigour in the run up to today's Wembley curtain raiser.

Some of the reporting has been that pisspoor it beggars belief as the writers trip over themselves to get City negativity out there. Badly researched and poorly edited output has seen everything from nothingness training ground punch ups to loaded questions fired at anyone within earshot for subsequent dramatisation. Diego Forlan is one respected footballer whose words have been twisted.

The bias towards Manchester united has been the most stunning aspect of this week's whirlwind of drivel. Any ex rag with an open agenda has been wheeled out to stick their nose into the trough. Cantona and McClair are just two of the hopelessly out of touch pundits whose words have been trawled out ad nauseam.

Meanwhile, the brown nosing of Taggart and his team has been toe curlingly appalling.

A newspaper that most football people would expect better from today actually ran in the same edition one article questioning how Mancini will cope with his expensive strikers and another article praising the 'magificent seven' united forwards of whom 'Manchester City will be the first to feel the full force.'

The Street of Shame's hacks who almost to a man and woman started last season by singling out Merlin Silva as a flop after one game's chief target this year outside of Mario Balotelli appears to be Mancini himself. But the cool for cats City gaffer remains unflappable. You can watch one particular hack's borderline nasty line of questioning online via citytv at the manager's pre Wembley press conference. Our Italian leader dealt with the buffoon concerned impeccably.

The siege mentality that the City side forged last year was fuelled by similar media tactics. Maybe the club's myriad enemies are really closet Blues and out to reinforce it!

Ah never mind fellas. They'll hate you guys like they hated (and hate!) us. Finally, it's all down to jealousy and envy. Now please beat United tonight!

Keep your head up,They've been running their mouths about Villas-Boas and Torres(Who actually had a fantastic game against Rangers) too.I think it's fair to say we're 2 clubs who will NEVER be the media darlings.Just ignore them or laugh at their desperation like I do.How mad would they be if we were the only 2 clubs in the running for the title?I'd love that,Imagine the headlines "A sad day for Football" or "It's official,Football is dead".

The best one today was we've privately set up a deal to sell Aguero to Real Madrid already. You can't make it up! It was in the Express.
