    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    In principle, you are correct. In reality, the BBC is a hostage to viewing figures and interaction just as any commercial entity is. Probably even more so. No matter who or what funds a media outlet, it is engagement that is king. Its just so frustrating to see it on the BBC.

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    Society likes to have some form of structure. People are comforted by it. They like familiarity. It may annoy lots on here, but the red tops have wormed their way into the league like limpets. Very hard, now, to dislodge. It will take many years to do. City are currently doing it, as we see...

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    That's a different era. The last 30 years have changed society beyond recognition. You think 30 years ago a no mark in his mums bedroom would get his own radio show on the basis of him being an idiot? Different rules apply now. But red tops are protected by the league. The media know not to...

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    The media will go for anything and anyone that makes them money. The only stories they get about the red tops are ones sanctioned by the clubs and the premier league. My point is, if at any point the league throw any of these red tops under the bus, the media would go for them. The media only...

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    They were. But the BBC are on the same page as the other media Johnny's. Domination spells trouble and must be stopped. It is the only reason to see Shearer be so pro utd in that game.

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    Yep. They would never be charged, not even investigated. The league socialism is a fallacy. None are equal. The red tops have taken a generation to anchor themselves at the heart of the premier league power corridors. It will take 3 generations to remove them.

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    Isn't the 115 the purest definition of confrontation and challenge you are ever likely to see? They don't care about guilt or innocence, or even if it is City. They care about income stream and what generates more of it. This would be a story if it was the red tops, but will never happen...

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    I don't believe that is true with modern media. The whole industry is built on confrontation and challenge. That's what sells. But, I hope to never find out.

    There's only one guarentee, and that's income stream. If it drops, or becomes at risk, they will go for the throat of anything that jeopardises it.

    Only if it didn't cause 'the product' damage.

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    I have come to the conclusion that there is only one thing more disliked by the media in this sorry 'state' of ours than Manchester City, and that is any sporting domination by Manchester City. I was puzzled by the pro rag lexicon of Shearer during the game. When did he become such a tubthumper...

    FA Cup Final - Post Game thread

    Although it's all opinion based, I consider 2 and 3 to be exactly the same, only the object of their shared ire differs. One projects out, the other projects in (on the outs).

    Ref Watch City Games - 2023/24

    The two penalty incidents were penalties. No doubt. But.... we all knew what would happen if we left our fate in the hands of the officials. They do us no favours. Yesterday was corruption in plain sight. Our lack of urgency and inability to perform to usual levels is the reason we lost, not the...

    Trophy Parade | Sunday 26th May, 19:30

    Are they going to parade the cwc and super cup along with our premier league cup?

    They don't want to update it....

    The premier league are very busy at the moment, what with all the league football being played. They'll probably get time to update it once the 115 charges have been resolved.

    Kompany set to become Bayern Munich manager

    Well, this is a conundrum. To want him to do well, or not. I can't make my mind up. That club is a fucking disgrace. But he's a City legend.

    How long will Ten Hag last at United? / Save Poundland Pep

    I just hope Southgate can continue his current managerial trajectory when he's put in charge outside the City limits. It's what that club and fans deserve. Thanks poundland pep, it just wasn't good enough in the end. The whole deluded lot of them at that club expect to be doing better than they...
