    I've always been of the opinion that the media poke fun at most clubs, but the recent disparity in the reporting of our signings and those made by other clubs has been worse than it has been over the last few seasons.

    We must be upsetting them. It is hilarious.

    I'm a bit long in the tooth but all the media crap stops if we win the league. If we don't then we will get a whole heap of sh*t, they know they can get a meltdown out of Guardiola, he like us should not bother about what's written other than use it to motivate the squad.

    Been watching SSN for the last 45 mins and they honestly have not mentioned Walker once, despite covering transfer news.

    - Rags are in LA
    - PEG is in LA
    - So is Lukaku
    - And here's Bryan Robson and Denis Irwin, they are also in LA (who gives a fuck?)
    - New £75m (conveniently ignoring add-ons and wages with this one) signing, Lukaku, could be joined by a familiar face.
    - PEG interview about Lukaku and maybe re-signing Ibrahimovic
    - Then stats that are fudged to suggest Ibrahimovic is the greatest striker in the universe
    - Now it's a 3 minute montage of Ibrahimovic goals, including the obligatory Bravo flap.
    - Then transfer news including Chelsea and Liverpool
    - Then back onto cricket and F1

    Did we even sign him?

    Done with SSN. No City news but shit loads of adverts (usually Sky related and betting stuff). Lost ALL interest in the shite. Sticking with BeIN - it's nowhere near as biased.

    Did it stop the last two times we won the league?

    It only stops when the media get to the point that pissing City fans off costs them more hits, clicks and money than sucking rags' and dippers' fans cocks.

    I'm a bit different in that I recognise that there is a media bias as there always will be towards certain teams due to the size of the fanbase, but it doesn't actually bother me. The opposite in fact, I think it can be used to create a siege mentality in the fanbase and create additional motivation. That "everyone is out to get us" feeling, plenty of managers try to create, yet here we have a real example that can be used in a good way.

    I do think some people wake up in the morning and trawl the papers looking for something to be offended at though. If it really demotivates you, then just don't read it. There's plenty of knowledgeable and less biased football journalism out there if people really want it. That does come with the caveat that not every criticism of us is invalid or down to bias though.

    I agree with you, but it hasn't worked with our fanbase has it ? The abuse and negativity and bias our club gets is awful and we all know it,but our fanbase mainly gets angry thats all,the atmosphere at most games couldn't be much worse ,and every season its getting worse alas.
