But I don't think many City fans would ever say we don't care about our closest regional rivals. Let's face it hating United and what they stand for (and nowadays Liverpool) is part of the deal of being a City fan. One of the best things about supporting football (especially live) is it allows you to vent your spleen. Pretending you don't care is a coping mechanism for Liverpool fans. Most United fans I know (certainly Mancunian ones) are happy to say they hate City. It's part of their DNA and I don't have a problem with it.Over 16,000 posts on the dipper thread and nearly 17,000 on the rag thread show we don’t care about them either.
