Thinking about the way Raheem Sterling has been quite vocal about racism has me thinking that it would be no surprise to see him win the PFA player of the year, he would have the support of those who are/were affected by racism.

Just my tuppence!

Money is tight, and not everyone can afford to go. Just dont get the constant abuse that teams get for low attendances. 45 for a non disabled seat is a lot of money. When you factor in travel and food. its a 150 day minimum. Fuck that for a game against cardiff.

I do think there is a lot more to it than just being shit fans.

Their fans are a bit shit, but id be at games if it didnt cost me as much money. But as an example, it costs me about 200 to go to a home game. Travel, Hotel, Food/Drink and Ticket. So I only go to one or two home games a season at most. So I dont blame them.

And there just isn't enough of them to pick up the slack.

LFC could get to 10 straight cup finals and every single one wouldn't have a capacity to meet demand.

City would have easily sold out any cup finals when they were shit. Now, they're spoiled.

Still, it's galling to see so many empty seats.

They're a new money club and as such, don't enjoy as wide a supporter base as us. If their model is sustainable (and I have my doubts) then it will come.

They'll be making more of them once they start melting down their plastic flags when there is no one to wave them.

Pep is definitely jealous of our fans/stadium. He'll go to Juve in 18 months, do 5 years there and come here to replace Jurg and keep us on our perch

Bloke at work said something interesting that I hadn't thought about. Basically they are a tiny club with very little support. If their core fans don't want to go to a game there's no one waiting to go and watch them. They are supposedly the All Star football team with the best coach and play the best football yet they can't sell out their stadium, in a metropolis of 3m people. It must be quite embarrassing for the owners

Leeds, Newcastle and West Ham are better supported, that's their true level

Need a goal in the last 5 of a CL tie and they are all sitting and standing there totally silent, not even any sort of appeals for fouls or handballs. What a strange little club they are.
