City is everything what true fans scorn:

- Most of the City fans are actually event fans to see football matches rather as a show to get entertained than as a simple sport.
- City breached the Financial Fairplay more than once and thanks to that team it is buried forever.
- Because of that the fans have the impression that teams with a rich financier and huge some of money are allowed to break the rules.
- City is considered as one of these teams that ruined football as a sport and turned it to an ugly business and show.
- Teams like City are the reasons why the gap between the rich and the poor football clubs increased.
- Thus teams with a small financial power have hardly chances to build up a competitive squad.
- City has the image being a bought up mercenary squad.
- That is why the fans think that the players have no identification for City.
- City has a sheik as a financier. And the sheiks are considered negatively in connection with football generally thanks to WC 2022...

Some insults may true, some aren't and some of these points even fit to another teams in Premier League. But hey, there are more than enough reasons to hate City!

Well I feel kinda guilty for supporting this team. To be honest, I wasn’t a fan of football except fifa. I started playing fifa 18 and leroy sane and as my favourite player and also it was a great team to use in the career mode. Afterwards I started watching football and I don’t know why but I just started supporting city. I didn’t realise why city was hated as much till now. My support won’t change but don’t you think other teams such as united , Chelsea have high finance. Also PSG is owned by rich people right? Why do people don’t hate them as much. Or maybe is hated is just that we are in the uk we don’t realise it?

By the way, who’s your favourite player and favourite team?

They’re the football team equivalent of a wag. They were essentially some girl never getting anywhere working on the checkout at Morrison’s who was one day plucked out of obscurity by an insanely wealthy sugar daddy who showered her with money elevating her overnight to enormous wealth. Even with unlimited resources she still wasn’t all that and struggled before finally making it in society but acts as though she made it all on her own and had always been rich and successful.

I don't hate them - I just don't see the appeal of watching people kick a ball around.

You are right: PSG, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, etc. aren't different, they are the same. Teams with a great financial power to invest not only in players for the pitch, but also for substitute's bench. These big teams are able to assemble a whole squad, that is the fortune they have by now.

But in contrast to City and PSG, the other teams have an impressive tradition and successful club history in the past and also fans they support these teams for 40, some even for 60 years, so long before football became that business in that way we used to know now. And although, these fans realized that show and business behind that sport, they can't stop to support them so suddenly. They experienced their speical moments in these times, bad defeats, amazing victories, in other words: fantastic memories. And these memories are connected to their emotions, so much, they can't give their team up. Once a fan, always a fan.

I personally stopped to watch this insanity. But I am an exception.

I think a lot of man city fans are disliked because of them hopping on the bandwagon. Obviously, this dosent apply to pre 2008 man city fans, such as those in there 50s who used to go to maine road and remember when man city were an average div 1 and prem team, but those Londoners who have never been to Manchester in their life but just supported Man City because Toure, Aguero and Silva played there lol.

Man City Away fans on the whole are sound as **** but some of the new type of fan are not worthy of respect. I get that they have won a heck of a lot over the last decade and a bit, but its sad to see them leave wembley before they lift the league cup. If your a fan, you should buy into the lifestyle a bit and be able to celebrate something without feeling entitled. The elderly lot do genuinely appreciate it, although I reckon they secretly wish to go back 30 years to a time when going to matches was different than now and winning was certainly not expected.

Does anyone actually hate Man City? I thought it was more disdain than hate.

- What are you basing the first point on? Also how is that any different to the other big clubs or big sports in general?
- the FFP rules were designed to stop other clubs breaking into the traditional club strangehold on the sport
- every big traditional club has had some wealthy benefactor at some point, it's the reason why they were able to grow bigger than other clubs. Is it just because Man City are one of the more recently examples?
- There are plenty of ugly things in football, the hooliganism from the 80s, the racism and homophobia in the game. Not sure what Man City have ruined. They're pretty clean about how they go about the business. In the transfer market, the operate near the top but aren't as extravagant as PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona.
- The reason for the big gap between big/small clubs is the commercialisation and the global reach. Man Utd are the kings of showing how to exploit products/services and geographies to maximise commercial revenues. Man City just get their money from a rich benefactor instead
- When Man City first were trying to break into the CL spots, they bought a lot of mercenary players (like Tevez) but who do they have now that you think is there just for the money? You look at the long careers of Aguero, David Silva, Kompany etc. Man City don't even pay the highest wages, just higher than market.
- When Man City are still successful in 10-20-50 years, will all your points go away because they'll then have a rich history of tradition and trophies and fans?
- Is a Sheik any worse than a Russian billionaire who got money by questionable means (Abramovich)? A lot of the billionaire owners are unsavoury for different reasons. Berlusconi owned AC Milan for a long time.

You have your good points! and as I said many times here and there, I see no differences to the other teams. I don't even make the differences between the financiers. In the purpose, big teams and financiers are the same.

I just listed up the reasons why City is so hated by so many fans. That does not mean that I agree with them in their views!

The fact they have rivalries with the two best supported English teams also has something to do with it.

Oh I suppose. Not sure I'd call it a rivalry in the traditional sense.
