BBC Football deliberately selects the most unflattering image possible
If we stop posting comments on the Guardians football section that should solve it. Viva la revolución!
I’ve noticed that most of the time in articles about us the picture near the headline always shows a player or pep wincing or grimacing and generally looking upset. But articles about the dippers or rags shows them happy or celebrating
'Papers: Barca start Pep charm offensive'
Well knock me down with a feather. Sky sports news reporting it but the mirror's headline.
Anyone else noticed the sudden yet subtle change to “The big seven” in the media now?
That image is from the BBC.
Unlike the BBC the Guardian Football monetise your comments. They want football fans to comment on their site to drive traffic, enabling them to sell advertising so arguing your point of view effectively supports their journalism and City fans on Guardian football end up driving a vicious cycle. The Guardian is at the more liberal end of the political spectrum, and I used to read it because I'd find some interesting opinion in there but since the takeover its coverage has become, in my opinion, more hostile.
Standard of reporting is shocking - two recent examples -
1. An article online with FourFourTwo talking about our 0-2 loss to United! (did they leave early???)
2. MOTD commentator said we needed to respond to the 'defeat' at Newcastle!
Ok so have an opinion sure, but at least get the bloody facts right - no-one cares about accuracy anymore

Wonder how arsed thd BBC would have been if a certain bunch of victims weren't there?
What do you make of this? A newspaper columnist linking Pep Guardiola's defence of Bernardo Silva with the monkey chanting at the Etihad. The journalist says the events are indirectly connected.
"Fast-forward to Bernardo Silva, Twitter and the publication of a more guileless form of cartoon stereotype on the internet, for which Silva received a one-match ban from the FA. This time Guardiola backed his man to the hilt, refused to offer any condemnation, defending pretty much the same kind of ill he had so righteously condemned.
Three months later we have monkey chants at the Etihad. The two are not directly connected, of course. Idiots need little assistance to be idiots. But as has been quite rightly levelled at the wretched Johnson, leaders also have a responsibility to set a tone, to show the best of us. One lesson of our current politics is that people listen to the messages they’re given."
The article is from the Guardian and Barney Ronay. "Fans must take it upon themselves to resist football's politics of hate".
The content of the headline is fine but I don't think many City fans will be too happy with his link between the incident and Bernardo Silva's tweet and Pep's defence of Bernardo albeit if the link is described as indirect.
