Doubt this does much to City

I cant foresee this being more than a small blip for City and the Arabs in charge

Two transfer bans and our owner losing his visa rights hasnt exactly destroyed us (well it remains to be seen anyway)

Nobody said otherwise.

All the WUM's on Brummie have exposed here is the entire notion that 'gloryhunter' should be an insult is stupid. Do people who say this think Liverpool & United have massive fanbases because of geography?

The majority of people become football fans as kids, and being kids will gravitate towards the beat teams of their time. Are players like Shaw, Lukaku & Sancho (Chelsea fans) who grew up on our years of success in the early/mid noughties gloryhunters? People fall in love with clubs for a variety of reasons, being the one nearest to where you live is merely one of them, no better or worse than any other. Imagine this theory in other walks of life being as fanatical, e.g. you're only allowed to fall in love with the girl next door? A bit silly isn't it

What matters is the loyalty after that connection. Do you stuck with your club through thick and thin? That's what has meaning, not how you fell in love with said club in the first place.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Actually my original comment was in response to Brummie saying about the majority of Liverpool fans having no connection to the city. I merely pointed out it’s funny coming from a lad from Birmingham with no connection to Chelsea
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Which many don't and admittedly I have no direct link to Chelsea!

However my overriding bone of contention with Liverpool for many years has been Liverpool fans, from Tavistock to Tromso, that couldn't find the place on a map if it hadn't been for all those league tittles and European Cups but then call me plastic!!


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Huge generalisation there. Same could be said of many Chelsea fans post Abramovich. Huge increase in fan base once you started winning league titles and European trophies. I assume you take them to task as well Brum?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Huge increase - really?

Our attendances nowadays are nowhere near what they used to be.

Our highest attendances dwarf Liverpool's largest ever attendance.

I've personally been in crowds of 55,000 more than once when we were in Division 2.

In days gone by attendances of over 60 and 70,000 were not uncommon at Stamford Bridge, with the highest recorded of over 82k and even an unofficial estimate of 120k for a friendly (estimated because the gates were closed at 100,000 but it's thought up to 20,000 managed to get in illegally after the gates were shut)!

That said, yeah there will be many who have jumped on the bandwagon. I don't have a problem with that as long as the remain loyal to the cause whatever happens and don't have the nerve to criticise those that decide to support the next big thing that hits the top of the league!

Think the comment was made in jest tbh.

I think that went largely noticed Cal.

Especially that buffoon that supports a Football club manager!

My connection to Chelsea goes back before Roman bought the club and I have some proof i supported before the buy

But also i was 9 years old when Roman bought the club and my most fanatical years have been all after that happened


I find the whole gloryhunting debates tiring and stupid

I was a goalkeeper at school so weirdly my favourite player as a kid was Cudicini

Also because when i bought stickers i always seemed to get his one

Well, in other news - Pep says he's staying at City even if they're in division 2!
