Following the clubs purchase by some rich folk, city have enjoyed a meteoric rise in the last 3 seasons reaching the sort of heights that have been sadly absent since the late 60’s and early 70’s, maintaining a great support through the low points, including relegation to the third tier of English football which was followed by an instant double promotion in the next two seasons.
Since then the club has moved from Maine Road to The City of Manchester Stadium and has finally started to rise to the footballing standard of the fierce local rivals Manchester United. In the 2010/2011 season Man City overcame United at Wembley in the FA cup semi final on the way to win their first trophy in 35 years and resulting in a certain banner being removed from the much quieter stadium in the city.
In 2011 City will take their first steps in the worlds most prestigious club football tournament, the UEFA champions League after achieving a 3rd place finish, level on points with Chelsea FC in second.
Thank God, Wigan Athletic proved them that money can’t buy class or desire to win. 500000000000000â¬ only to lose the FA Cup to Wigan and the Premier League to Utd. Well done, you sheikhs.
“Manchester City lost again, mate.”
“And only lost 2-0. That’s good for their standards.”
What makes me laugh is all you rags who say that City are ‘bitter’ and are obsessed with Trafford Un*ted. It is all you lot (or at least a large number) that are obessed with City and not the other way round. You should be worrying about your own club, not ours. I suppose it must be hard though, winning all those trophies, and having all those fans all over the world, and still just being a Trafford club.
Un*ted should adopt 3 stars on their shirt as well!
3- fewer european cups than the most successful british team.
3- fans from manchester.
3- decibels heard from their fans at home matches.
3- other teams supported before finally settling for Utd.
3- prawn sandwiches eaten per person per game.
3- dives per game from the winker.
3 reasons to support such a great club as Trafford-
1. price fixed their own shirts to screw their fans.
2. tried to get 3′ 0 clock saturday kick off’s televised and shaft all the small lower division clubs in the process.
3. tried to screw more money to televise their games than every other premier league club from SKY.
Or the 3 stars count for the number of home games recently that “the worlds greatest club” have failed to sell out – also it stands for the number of miles that the swamp is outside manchesters boundarys , remember the rags can win the treble every year but they will still be imposters from trafford living off manchesters reflected glory
two words : MASSIVE cLUB
The council house is never full, unless you play man united
Manchistoh is red 30 years 30 years
Manchester city *** 3 stars.
Oh we are also the richest club in the world..thanks to the Sheikh and his Oil. Think about this Scum fans…everytime you put petrol in your car…you are making us richer…happy days!
Manchester City Fan: Thanks for the dosh sucker
