Most of us treat our favourite football club like a loyal old dog. No matter how much it keeps us up at night or occasionally leaves us unexpected steaming piles of mess to clean up, it is always capable of bringing us unparalleled joy. Such affection for one team leaves a whole lot of hate for the remaining 91 clubs in the football league.
Whether wholehearted hatred or mild malevolence, everyone has something they despise about their rivals. In a series titled ‘Five things we love to hate’, we’ve pointed our misanthropic finger at some of England’s top clubs so you don’t have to.
They say money can’t buy success… or at least they used to. Many of us harbor fond memories of when Manchester City were little more than the Scrappy Doo to the Premier League’s monsters. One Sheik of a magic wand later, many of us now yearn for the days where Kiki Musampa was baring down on our side’s goal rather than Sergio Aguero.
Vast investment has been hailed as well-deserved by City fans and unfair by others, either way, the latest instalment in our series probably wouldn’t exist without it.
Look out for the most terrifying crest in world football.
