We were on the train back from the game yesterday and were sat near some Leicester fans. There were also a load of Wednesday fans coming back from Charlton. As we were standing up to get off one of the Wednesdayites was passing and said to both us and the Leicester fans, " you're living the dream you boys are aren't you" and we spoke as we were walking down the train. Me saying we were there once and him "It's what you've done that keeps us going"
I thought briefly, he got it, that we had spent years watching City when they were dire and we deserved it. No fan in their right mind would turn down what happened to us.
As my daughter was quick to point out when we got off the train however, he thought I was a Leicester fan and would not have said that if he knew I was a City fan He was probably not even old enough to remember our fan base in the eighties and nineties when we were doing exactly the same as him, travelling the country to watch shite served up at the likes of Charlton.
That depresses me, not the knobheads on Twitter who have probably never been to a game, or the hyprocisy from the Rags and Dippers, but the perception of real fans about City and their fanbase.
Indeed. We've seen in recent times, particularly in the 1930's and 1940's how words lead to actions.The words leads to calls for action and we know these are not empty threats.

There's no doubt that much of the lies and smears are driven by other clubs and their lickspittles in the media. I always believed in the past that journalists were seekers of facts, tellers of truths and enemies of injustice. But this current crop of football journalists are (to quote Aneurin Bevan) lower than vermin.
They've whipped up xenophobia and outright racism. None are remotely bothered about facts, fairness or the consequences of their words. They spew out just what their puppet masters, be they club PR teams, agents, advertisers, even political entities, tell them to write.
For those saying they're not bothered, well that's great but I've suffered personally at the hands of some of these lowlife pieces of shit. Delaney, Corbett, the two Harrises, have themselves attacked me directly, and encouraged others to do so.
They've formally complained about me to my employer and to City. Fortunately both stood firm but they could easily have cost me my livelihood, simply because I've stood up and defended my club. They were happily prepared to ruin me and that certainly bothers me.
Fortunately some stood shoulder-to-shoulder with me and they suffered as well. I know two people who were driven to being treated for depression by these shitbags. And those shitbags will think that's a job well done. That's how low they are.
Everyone who considers themselves a City fan absolutely SHOULD be bothered by this constant outpouring of uninformed drivel, slander and outright lies. It's a war and you're all in the trenches whether you like it or not.
