The Only Football to come from Manchester or anywhere
The BBC is institutionally biased against City. The internal culture at BBC Online is so embedded they just can't see it. The whole organisation is totally politicised and they can't cover football in a straight impartial way. The story selection, the social media feeds, people like Dan Roan literally never tweets out a positive City story, the snide defamatory comments on stories which are left out there. The constant mocking of City and lack of respect which they claim is just banter. It really isn't banter it's trolling which is very different.
They keep saying City fans are paranoid and deluded but what's happening is obvious to match-going fans from other clubs. The BBC's complaint process has essentially collapsed (I have been told this by someone senior who works there). They dismiss complains out of hand. There is an arrogance from Desk Editors about their content which doesn't happen on the same scale anywhere else. The culture is they believe they never make mistakes and when they are caught out the culture is to cover it up. The online team knows that Ofcom are taking years to proc complains complaints because they are overwhelmed with complaints about BBC online. No one is held to account.bout
Yet they found air time to discuss a complaint about Clive Myrie laughing and joking on HIGNFY within days of reporting on Ukraine. If anything should have gone into File 13 it was that.
They always seem to reject complaints out of hand which prevented me from complaining about redshirt bias well before Pep spoke out. If they don't listen to Pep they ain't going to listen to lil ol' me.

Man City
BBC Breakfast giving saturation coverage to the Glasgow Dippers who have arrived early for get Scottish-pissed before their European final. Lots of praise for the fans travelling without tickets and almost even crediting them for the sunny weather.
No mention of them trashing the City centre a few years back. Just a bit of hero worship for the Scottish Dippers from bbc staff there in large numbers for a jolly themselves.
Hot weather, loads of beer and huge amounts of fans without tickets is not a good recipe.
I was in town all day and well after it kicked off that day and it's hands down the maddest behaviour I have ever seen from any football fans, if not any group of people. I remember driving down Oldham Road in the morning seeing already pissed Rangers fans queuing for a massage parlour down the scorching hot street and knowing it was going to get tasty. Market Street at lunchtime I saw a huge, wasted guy come out of Tesco with a microwave chicken curry, rip the plastic off and start eating it uncooked with his bare hands - that was a new one. When it turned into utter mayhem later after the screen failed it was no surprise. Late I remember seeing a car upside down - think it was Lever Street, and it might actually have been a news truck. And then all the missiles and TAU going absolutely bananas. I did get offered a swig from someone's Buckfast in Piccadilly Gardens though. And a girl shouted 'Gi us a swadge a yer bobby' at my mate. Apart from that it was terrifying, but it happened in Manchester, so not surprised the 'national' media has forgotten it!

Radio 2 sports news this morning, "Liverpool won at Southampton to take title decider to the last day for the first time in 8 years". Know I'm getting old and time goes more quickly but could have sworn Brighton was only 3 years ago.
The Mail came out with similar bollocks last week. They claimed it was the closest title race "for years".

The fucking state of so called sports jouranlism these days.

Working in the middle of Blackpool at the time where thousands had come to stay before the match. The young ones were boisterous but OK. Spoke to a lot of them that were more my age, hearing I was a City fan they treated me as a kindred spirit and expressed a strong dislike of the rags. Was treated to lots of Masonic handshakes,wasted on me I'm afraid. All in all good crowd, the young farmers clubs are far more obnoxious. Probably helped by the fact Bpool is Glasgow on sea and lots of Rangers fans live there.
