Well said David Conn in the Guardian
Yep, indeed.

It's unfortunate that MCFC do not feel burdened with shame or embarrassment. On occasions like this it would take great leadership to rebuke the prima-donnas that provide the fuel of clubs avarice for success, but they don't have any. Not a single person at that club will denounce that display of professional perniciousness.

THIS is how they choose to celebrate winning the league?! Not with a song about Guardiola, no songs about their journey to the title, nothing about City's past successes, nope, just a song about Liverpool fans being beaten up and Mo Salah getting injured. I find their obsession with Liverpool utterly bizarre, we seem to have really got into their heads somewhere down the line. I guess we are the stick by which they measure their own relevance and they're coming up short. That said, if anyone should have that kind of seething resentment and bitterness it should be us, shouldn't it? We're the ones who are missing out on our biggest dreams because of their financial cheating. All the while our manager and our players are nothing but dignified about it and our fans wouldn't even dream of singing about them.

But if there's one thing this season has taught me above all else it's how glad I am that I support Liverpool. From the way we conduct our business off the field, to the lads we have playing for us every week, to our supporter culture, we are just miles better than any other club in this country. No wonder they fucking hate us!

Well I just hope that our club sends a complaint to the FA and tells them that they are completely incompetent. Every article I have read is disgusted by the song but yet the FA see absolutely nothing wrong.

City have made a complete laughing stock of their club by defending the indefensible.

They are a classless bunch of assholes who, rather than acknowledging a worthy competitor who pushed them right to the end, they feel that it is ok to come out with childish songs.

I thought that the Sun was the piss of the earth but now they have been replaced by classless City.

The true sign of a champion is somebody who appreciates the strength of the opposition.

Well done City. Such a scummy club.

Bluemoon aside, name a chant they have that isn’t about another club. Even their chant for Aguero is a dig at United. You can give them all the money in the world, they still have a small time mentality. It’s in their DNA.

They have basically undone all the progress that has been made. I thought that we had seen the end of offensive songs but now they have basically said that anything goes again.

Put them in the same category as The Sun and City.

A song about their owners would be nice...

Its essential I feel.

A clever song that points out their financial cheating and the human rights abuses of the murderous régime that props them up would be great. They're a PR vehicle of a regime that's responsible for the murder and starvation of thousands in Yemen along with the horrors in their own country.

Nothing can damage them more. They can sing lies and fantasy about Liverpool all they want but the truth hurts so much more on every level. PR my arse.

Scum

That word is frowned upon on RAWK I’m well aware

But it fits in nicely for people who sing this. Now their players and staff are at it, thinking they were in the confines of anonymity

What a disease of a club. Spearheaded by slave owners

The enemy of football but thanked by the country for keeping us from the title. People do busy with their hate for us they can’t see their game being ripped away from them.

If anything City should thank us for distracting the nation from what they’re doing

City as a club and a set of fans are a joke. The consistent denial of any wrong doing, ever. The backdrop of decades of inferiority (or ‘Everton syndrome’) as the shit club in Manchester, the fact we are all just jealous of those perfect, virtuous, humane owners of theirs. It’s all an agenda, let’s boo at the champions league anthem, and be outraged by some rival fans shaking up their players. That’ll show them.

Just another example, in a long line, reflecting how small time their fanbase (and players) are. The soulless, illgained glory is there for all to see.

A slave driving club. That’s all they are. Scum players, scum fans, scum club. End of.

And I’m surprised we would have thought any different. This is a club that also sang about Munich and Matt Busby on his ‘deathbed’. No doubt, our fans have been culpable of singing the same.

But for the players to do so and pretty much officially sanction the shite their fans have been singing? Well... what more do you expect from a club that is built on blood money?

I should have seen this a long long time ago.

Pity is far worse than anger. Not reacting is far worse for them than reacting

Let them chant about Hillsborough. We (and now the majority of all football fans) know the truth. We live in a post inquest world where those attempts fall flat at the first hurdle. It makes them look even worse.

Let them chant about Sean Cox. We sold more tickets to a friendly match supporting his recovery than they sell to a FA cup semi final.

Their chants are unacceptable. But the world sees them for what they are. A plastic club that deserve pitying. They are as worthless and as irrelevant as they were before they got their money

Fuck off

It's the equivalent of a young Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson burning £20 notes in front of a homeless person.

If it is not about Sean Cox and Hillsborough then what is it about? That is a question they will not be able to answer. 

It is obviously about Sean Cox and Hillsborough.

Will be interesting when these arseholes come to Liverpool next time around and any of their players exist in the UK.

Liverpool fans everywhere. One suspects that laughing at people being nearly killled and 96 people being actually killed might actually come back on them for some reason.

The club haven’t commented publicly and rightly so. They’ve always been very good in taking into account the feelings of those affected and I’m sure privately they are in contact with the Hillsborough families and Sean Cox’s family.

The City response has been frankly pathetic. Say we believe them that it wasn’t about Sean Cox (it very clearly is), then it’s ok because some Liverpool fans attacked in Kiev survived to tell the tale? That’s before the victim connotations and singing about their captain injuring our man.

It’s a shocking response. Chelsea and Liverpool’s joint condemnation of the Salah chants, our own condemnation of the fountain incident in Barcelona (and strong voices on here too) were the right thing to do. That football club just has nothing about it at all.

Here’s hoping this Uefa verdict brings them down a peg or two. I won’t hold my breath

I've been busy all day and evening so had not seen any news. I fully expected that by the time I had come back online that Abu Dhabi FC would have issued an unreserved apology for that abomination of a video/song. Honestly, I know they are a classless posse of rats, but I at least expected they'd try to limit the damage to their own already tattered reputation if nothing else, but no.

It's not often that I'm surprised at the bizarre, ridiculous and often stupid things many people will do and say when it comes to football, but to see the Champions of England singing this filth is mind-boggling and deeply depressing. To then release a statement defending it is absolutely staggering. The lack of class, dignity, respect and humility is of epic proportions. We must really, really have got under their skin this season, because the way they have acted since Sunday has been an utter disgrace to themselves and football generally. I don't think I've ever seen champions acting in such a disgusting manner in my life.

To be honest, I actually find what's happened to their club depressing and sad. They've always had their gobshites, as anyone who ever went to Maine Road will testify, but they also used to have a lot of good, solid supporters with an abundance of humility and self-deprecation. They were everything United were not. They seemed more down to earth, and not pumped full of self-importance and arrogance. Yet since Abu Dhabi bought the name of their club, ripped out its heart and soul and used it as a PR exercise, the whole thing has become some kind of grotesque Frankenstein's Monster. It's rancid from top to bottom. We knew this about their owners, and we knew this about their recent fanbase, but the players too? The players, for goodness sake. It beggars belief. Man City were never a massive club, and they were always in the shadow of their neighbours, but they were always a solid club. What they have been replaced with is just repulsive on so many levels. Since my cousin and her City-supporting, Mancunian husband got divorced I don't get to see him anymore, but I'd love to know how he feels about what has happened to his beloved City these days. Apart from him I've never known another City fan so all I get to see/hear are their balloon-heads online, unfortunately.

This is it, isn't it.

Whilst the Champions of England are acting like, disgusting, classless gobshites for all the world to see, Liverpool are quietly, and with dignity, getting on with preparing for the European cup Final.

That says a lot in itself.

We're letting it speak for itself, and watching the incompetent arrogance of their PR department. And wondering how good their lawyers really are, if they can't keep their emails safe, and are not capable of writing coded sentences.
And why it would take a threat of 50 million in lawyer's fees to tie UEFA up if they can't bully their way to what they want.
I suspect their legal might actually be a bit shit, just thuggish and rich.
If I was a really good lawyer would I want to be employed to cheat at running a football club by someone who might torture me, burn me, run me over if I displeased them?
I think I would have better options.
Therefore, I think they are probably not the best, rich, and a bit thick. So, they may leave a fucking big wide trail, like a toilet roll stuck to their shitty arsehole.

A comment yesterday at work said it all.

The bitter and the Manc were chatting about us and the Manc asked the bitter had he been up to see me on Monday. He said no, I worked from home, because if they had won it, it would have taken me 3 hours at least to get back home as the City would have been rammed for the parade. I honestly don't even know if City had a parade and if they did, it didn't affect traffic.

If we win in Madrid, there will be at least a million out on the streets again.

IT was one of the most cringe worthy  things i have seen.They had the usual supermarket Dj calling out the players and probably the same cheer from a crowd you would hear at a 21st or 30th party. Pathetic. They really are a nothing club.

They are desperate to be relevant but the fact is City aren't our rivals. They are a small time club with money and that will never change.

Its essential I feel.

A clever song that points out their financial cheating and the human rights abuses of the murderous régime that props them up would be great. They're a PR vehicle of a regime that's responsible for the murder and starvation of thousands in Yemen along with the horrors in their own country.

Nothing can damage them more. They can sing lies and fantasy about Liverpool all they want but the truth hurts so much more on every level. PR my arse.

A song about their owners would be nice...

Nah, don't bother. Would just make us look rattled. Just concentrate on our own team and sing songs about ourselves. Fuck them.

The reality is, we make other supporters and other clubs insecure.
I think we're so used to who we are as a club, that we forget the perception others have of ourselves.
We are truly the sleeping giants. Any failure on our part will be seized upon and enjoyed and heralded far more than any other club. Thats what comes when you have the sort of history we have. You make new history, you can buy new history,  but you can't make or purchase old history.

On the flip side,  any success we have will resonate more than that of anotherr club bar United. And not just because as supporters, we're fantastic at keeping our history and successes alive in the form of songs and banners et al. But because, Liverpool represent the few clubs that have made an impact in domestic and European football. Might sound grandiose,  but we are part of the elite groups in football. And we've earned that status, a status that takes decades to earn. It's why the sudden rise of Chelsea and City into title contenders seemingly launched a hatred by their supporters of us. Deep down inside, they know. As a club, in terms of stature, heritage, and relevance, and inspite of their successes and our trophy failures, they still can't compete. They're still not a club like us.

So its almost a compliment. Even in their successes, they think of us. Even in our failures, they think of us.
Unfortunately  for them, their biggest fears arose this season. We're back as a threat, and now with a chance to rub their face in it with a European trophy. In our 9th European Final and our 2nd in a row.
The sleeping giant has awoken from the slumber, and no amount of petty songs will make a difference. In fact, it only makes it more the sweeter when we do start lifting trophies.

There go my people. I must follow them, for I am their leader.

They've never conquered Europe,
I doubt they'll ever start,
From White Hart Lane to Anfield,
Quarter finals break their hearts,
The players don't give a shit
Only there for obscene pay,
And their owners execute you,
If they think you might be gay.
Allez, allez, allez.
