    Well said, is it wrong to want to pick up a paper and read something reasonable about your club, instead all we get is bile poured our way, I stopped buying newspapers years ago when our club changed its name to Oil Rich City and just to make it even worse it is even entrenched into football manager games, it is fucking sickening and on that matter the press release function in that game when we play the rags always makes it out as if City beating them is a rare event, twats every single one of them.

    you are, of course, entitled to your opinion.

    It isn't spot on in mine.

    I think the first couple of lines highlights your not too well versed on this topic. First of all it was not 'someone' but the BBC themselves who titled a photo and then published it. Even though, originally, they lied about it and claimed it was 'titled' by an external organisation only to be questioned upon this and have to backtrack their original claim.

    As for an inofensive epithet surely you would agree 'Manchester city supporter', 'football fan', would all have been more inoffensive descriptions??Yet the BBC (not some lad bantz fanzine, twitter feed) chose to title the picture of an elderly City fan as 'Bertie' from Bertie the bitter blue a derogatory term used by a rival football club and by association describe him as one.

    I am not a great believer in a lot what is wrote regarding an agenda but I can recognise when City fans are being insulted and yes I expect better from the national broadcaster than childishly ridiculing an elderly blue. If you genuinely think this is not unique please highlights all the other elderly members of the public the BBC has photographed and decided to ridicule? Of course they haven't because they know this is not acceptable practice unless you happen to be a football fan and in particular a City fan.

    If you want to be amused look at McNulty's BBMUTVC report on their sport website the headline reads "City salvage a point" and then completely omits to mention the Milner foul on Sterling only referring to the incident as a missed opportunity by the player , but he is able to comment on the otto/sane coming together , do the BBC actually send a reporter to games nowadays or is the bias towards the Rag/Dippers so ingrained .

    Says it all that someone as limited as McNulty has such a lofty title. Average halfwit full of his own bluster - if he said it was going dark of an evening I'd wait and see.

    Um. it has this line:
    "...while City were furious their penalty claims were ignored as Sterling went down under a challenge from Milner as he closed in on a finish in the six-yard area."

    You've read the first mention, but no the one later on, unless it's been edited of course!
