You would be hard pushed to find big clubs with worst atmospheres in their grounds than Bayern and Barca. Bayern is one of the quietest stadiums in Germany and Barca is really just pathetic. It is a large uncovered bowl (which is half full most of the time) with huge numbers of tourists. In contrast Seville is a cauldron of noise. The problem with this generation of social media fanboys is they just don't actually go to any matches. They have literally no idea what they are talking about.
Was at a Seville v betis derby a few years ago and it was brilliant,before during and after it was a great spectacle.
Been at a fair few different derbies over the years and it was probably the best of the lot.

100% - Anfield is actually a good place to go and hear pins drop after the tourists have stopped singing YAWN from their song sheets.
In the 64/65 season I went with a Chelsea supporting mate to watch their game at Anfield. Roger Hunt scored both goals in a 2-1 win and after the match they paraded the league trophy around the ground, the atmosphere wasn't anything special, unless you count lots of red scarves waving in the air as a world beating atmosphere. I've also just had a quick scan at the home attendances that season and a good number varied between the high thirties and mid forty thousand spectators, they also won the FA Cup and their title win was the second in three seasons. What were they saying about filling grounds?

Anyone noticed the amount of websites and third-rate WordPress sites created for facebook pages constantly posting about our attendance over the last week or so?

Its hilarious. Most of these pages/sites have no traffic at all (6 likes, 3 comments on most posts they put out), yet get to a city-attendance-related post and they've got 1.5k likes, 100s of comments - we aren't a big club, but we are all you ever fucking talk about and the only reason anyone looks at your comtent.

Negative stories about City generate a lot of online traffic from LFC, MUFC, plus other fans who hate us. A negative City story is better than a positive LFC story (which is ignored by the MUFC fans) There is an increasing trend for this sort of clickbait.
The concept of stories being chosen on news value or merit has died...which is another reason why so many of the traditional media firms are also dying. Clicks on stories don't have much value unless you can monetise them. It literally is a race to the bottom in terms of quality.

It made me laugh that Ronaldo was referred to as ‘Christiano Ronaldo’ every single time he touched the ball. It’s almost as if they have been instructed to give him his full name!
Could be worse. They could call him 'CR 7' all the time.
All these people raving over him and every thing he does did not seem to have any interest at all in him when playing in Spain or Italy or in Internationals for Portugal. The Internationals were shown on terrestrial TV and league matches easily available on Sky.
