Hmmm. Im sorry but I dont really understand this 'new fan' thing. I cant see how a grown adult would suddenly become a City fan!! What were they doin before hand??
Obviuosly, kids would maybe now jump ship or see us as a good option when 'choosing' a team. I just cant see how an a adult or even someone in their teens would think 'oh, I think Ill support City now'.
Our attendencies have gone up because we're now playin good football. I went when we were shit but even then I used to sometimes think 'Why the fook do I do it' Im sure loads got to the point where they thought 'I ent got the spare cash to watch that shit'. Its prob not a very good attitude to have but I can also understand why many might have gone down that road when you consider how expensive it is goin to game.
To answer that one am in my fortys and have always injoyed football at national level when the world cups and euros came along but never followed at club level then 4ish years ago started getting interested in City came a season card holder and love it come from out side manchester but make all home games and a few away when i can get the tickets as they are like rocking horse shit now / so think thats loyal in my eyes Hate the scum even as a kid and looked as city as the underdog which was a fight worth fighting hope this sheds some light on it as we are all in it together as the bluemoon rises Com-On-City
