only recently (abramovich years) have they become football rivals.....ergo jcl`s
my rivals are the ones that threaten to win things.
it was leeds when i 1st started going,liverpool and now man utd[still not willing to give chelsea or city credence]they ain,t done enough yet.
i am more than aware of our rivalry with spurs and find it mildly amusing.
i find us singing about them when we are not playing them annoying giving them publicity they have,nt earned
That almost sounds like Leeds have won more than City! When in reality they have won as much as WBA (as I'm sure you will know!)
I don't think some people realise that City are on of the most successful English clubs in regards of trophies. (again, not pointed at you as you will know!)
i went on perception when i was 7 yorky up until about 75 leeds were the team to beat/hate.
now i go on what i class as a footballing generation[say a giggs career]and in that respect city are a mid table side.
that may change over the coarse of a few years but it wont go on the back of 1 title.
now that don,t mean a hill of beans to you yorky and i don,t expect it to and it would,nt to me.
i,ve never moaned about chelsea,s money or yours i believe wenger talks of how he would like things to be rather than the way they are and its holding us back. and i have upmost respect for city and there fans both proper[though the goodwill has been tested with the aquisition of our players] and i always believe the most important season is the next. i was,nt digging at you mate if anything i was imploring arsenal fans not to go on other teams sites gloating.
it may be the man utd way but it is not ours.
high profile when we lose low profile when we win is the arsenal mantra.
celebrating among yourselves is a different matter
