Brilliant article but it will not get the coverage or praise outside of the City fan base ( not that we are looking for that just a basic understanding of our fan base would be appreciated )simply as it was written by a City fan..
They simply would not allow it, and neither should we.You'd have to go back a long way to ever find a time when the media has attacked those clubs - they don't need to stop it because it's not happened to them in recent times. With City it's a media pile on every time.
You’re spot on. We accept Pep warts and all. We’d obvs much sooner have an outstanding manager who never really bonded with us rather than a seemingly very nice bloke like Ole who’s in tune with their fanbase but isn’t a very good manager.Can you really separate the man and his success though ? You have to accept the whole package - strengths and weaknesses - with Pep and apart from the Champions League Pep has hoovered up trophy-wise. Klopp has the Dipper fans eating out of his hand and has brought them success after a long period of zero trophies but then again he doesn't have the media undermining him and the club at every available opportunity like Pep has had to endure.
I think it confirms how out of touch the MEN is with the majority of people who live in Manchester (Blues and Reds). It is almost as if they have to be defensive about publishing an opinion piece from a fan. If the paper and website was properly run the fans' opinions would be reflected throughout the product. They lost their core audience decades ago.It's a blatant attempt to tap into a City perspective whilst criticising Pep. None of us need to know anything about League One. The MEN is part of Reach plc and have shown their colours time and again. All they are interested in is selling news and this article criticises Pep whilst trying to be sympathetic to City fans.
The club have allowed these attacks to transpire for far too long, WHY?
