fm // 2 your team - manchester city, english premier league

"To be a Manchester City fan for the last 30 years has been to understand what it is like to be part of something that bonds a large population of people, yet seems to offer little tangible reward for taking part. Yet the support for the club stayed loyal. Not because they expected success any time soon – you can’t truly expect, or even genuinely hope for it, when languishing in Division Two – but because this was them. This was vindication for a set of fans who, like other fans up and down the country, had not chosen the easy option of adopting a team that might guarantee trophy victories. Who had continued their support in the face of years of mocking and disappointment because Manchester City represented them. Their - or part of their - society. Their city. Their, or at least some of, their friends. It was their team, part of their social life, part of something that defined many every day conversations and interactions within their social circles. This is what football clubs come to mean to people. However stupid and ridiculous that sounds."
