How many of you guys have fake accounts on Grand Old Team because that next manager poll has got to be satire!

Are they really not bothered or just pretending

I guess they are trying to pretend they are not bothered, like a teenage boy shunned by the girl he fancies having finally plucked up the courage to ask her out only to be told in no uncertain terms to “fuck off”. He’s not bothered, at least that’s what he loudly tells his mates. But it seems natural that both he and City would be bothered given the amount of effort both put in to their pursuits. Therefor paradoxically the very existence of a thread exclaiming how ‘not as bothered as they thought they would be’ they are, suggests that they are in fact bothered. People who aren’t bothered tend to say very little.

All of this suggests a degree of obsession with how I feel about them being not bothered. But worry not! I am seeking counselling.

So you're not bothered about how not bothered they are, but secretly you are quite bothered because it's clear they are bothered? Right? Ah I shouldn't have bothered

I feel my commenting any further can only be incriminating.

The work he did with Messi arguably turned him into an exceptional player to the best there's ever been.

No argument that his time at both Citeh and Bayern have been relative failures but it doesn't mean we re-write history and shit all over his Barca tenure.

Grand Old Team: The Absolute State of This Club

Baines' left foot: A kopite in charge

Not a pot to piss in despite a so called billionaire owner

Our best players don't care and would leave in a heartbeat

Our crap players don't want to move on because they know they won't get their £££££££££££££££

Why are we still supporting this mess?"

"Same thing happened across the park. FSG came in and trusted the wrong people because they were new to football ownership. They let Commoli talk them into overpaying for a bunch of players because he forgot that they can't all take penalties.

They had one good season, then it all went sideways. They underperformed for years. Eventually they recovered from the initial mistakes, got better people in charge and turned the battleship in the right direction.

We just haven't gotten quite far enough in our own version of that story yet. Our version will be longer and more painful, because of their deal with the devil. Sooner or later, though, that guy's soul gets claimed and the curse ends."

WTF is that all about?

He went from a proper whinge to a full on Dungeons and Dragons downward spiral into the abyss of mortal fear and depression...

Previous life..?

Can you imagine what fans of teams lower in the league must have been guilty of?

...always thought he was better suited to the role of a physio... running onto the pitch to see gruesome injuries, like a leg break. His face is perfect for the on-pitch reaction...

This is fantastic. The reasoning is brilliant too. "We could say the same for Pickford over Alisson". Just need a faux Origi username to like that message.
