    Kevin De Bruyne is a joy to watch for me. Effortless.

    Most Man City fans I know gnash their teeth and pull out their hair because they weren't born Millers. I hope, Lolmorgan, for your sanity that your comment was meant as a joke?

    Being a Miller is a rollercoaster ride. Being a Man City fan is a ride on a safe roundabout

    That's simply not true. I worked for years in Manchester and all the market traders were lifelong City fans. They were the poor relations and apart from the Mercer/Allison spell they didn't have much to shout about. Not their fault if someone invests a load of money in the club. Those lads would still support City if it was in L2.

    Yep, agree with you there, my comments were more aimed at the later bandwagon supporters.

    Many of the old die hard City fans can't afford to go to the games now and "support" via Sky

    They were just another club before a Saudi prince got hold of them, a biggish club that rarely won anything, like an Everton or Aston Villa. Even when they won the lottery, their journey from mediocre to domestic dominance wasn't a quick one.
    They are now a machine and as they demonstrated to us in January, a ruthless one. And boring in the same way Spain became boring with their tippy tappy 5000 passes to move 20 yards forward football.

    We were fortunate enough to watch our mate play at the Etihad from the chairmanís box and be looked after by his assistant and when I asked him why they havenít extended the left stand behind the goal to match the other end, he said it was Ďcos they canít fill it, strangely enough.

    I agree that they are boring to watch, especially when compared to Liverpool. Also boring that they are probably going to keep on winning trophies but no worse than when Liverpool, Arsenal, Man Utd used to do the same. Agree also about their fans being long suffering and those that were deserved a little bit of success. Gone on too long now though, time for RUFC to assume the mantle

    David Silva, 400 appearances and still can't speak English.

    A British player abroad would get stick for that.

    Yes - glad that I have seen him play against us , even though he ripped us to bits. He does the same to most international teams too. Great player.
