I think that the City PR machine has done fairly well until recently. I am in a football WhatsApp group which started out as just a few friends and then added friends of friends etc, anyway it has a range of fans in no City fans and a few LFC fans but mostly neutrals. Anyway most of them wanted City to win the league and a few wanted them to win the treble because 'they are a great team' and it 'would be historic'. When I mentioned how much money they spend, a lot come back with comments such as 'Liverpool are spending about the same', 'Liverpool are also being investigated for financial fairplay', 'City aren't dominating English football', 'Having someone different dominating is good for the game', as well as the you're just jealous/bitter etc. I've posted some of the links above and will see how they go down
The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it; if you can't top it, laugh at it; if you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.
