I know its Manchester City. You know its Manchester City.

So vote for em! :)

Can a team on this planet player better than them? Nah! Better than Brazil on our day! ;)

Can a team play worse, more uselessly? Nah! Ive seen footy worse than you can ever imagine from them. A glorified pub team.

At once the greatest and the most awful, the good guys to Man United's bad guys...with massive loyal support despite not winning a thing for 25+years...

City are the team for those with an affection for the underdog, for the jinxed, the under achiever, the overlooked. A team whose every match is a war of nerves, a soap opera. Anything can happen. :)

I can't include every English team in the poll obviously, so I include some of the better known. And Man City. :)

Ah the good natured English football chant... (cough) :eek:

We have a better class of fan in the north I think. :) ;)

Along, of course, with better teams. :)

I wanna know who this other Derby fan is!

Ahh, Derby, how we love the fact that no-one really cares, nobody cares if we go down, nobody would care if we won the league, whatever. No-one cares. Except us.

A team who were dubbed "The Entertainers of the Premier League" in the early season of 97/98 by some journalist who probably cared too much... a formidable strike partnership of the enigmatic but absolutely fantastic top-player Paulo Wanchope (you think he is good at City Chris.. we got the best out of him I think, he was awesome (apart from against Barnsley and Bolton that season when he did f**k all)., The Little Pirate, Francesco "Ciccio" Baiano, and once was good turned villain of fans, Dean Sturridge (Arsenal offered £7 million for him once! We didn't take it, we ended up selling him for £300,000 to Leicester).

Oh those times were good, there was a real buzz around a new stadium, we were brilliant at home, and when we lost we still felt upbeat (apart from when we lost to Leicester 4-0, all goals coming in the opening 16 minutes), but it was great.

The season after, we werent as entertaining but we finished 8th, and everyone was talking about Europe! Who cares if we replaced future England International Chris Powell with a balding German tackling mis-timer! WHo cares if we replaced Lee Carsley with... oh we never have. Who cares if we replaced Paulo Wanchope with Mikkel "How is it legal that man now plays in the Champions League" Beck (ok so they were there at the same time, but he became the target man), and then later an illegal immigrant in Esteban Fuertes! Come on, so what if his Italian passport was fake, with a name like Fuertes, which is spanish for Strong, he's got to be Italian! Hey, Jim Smith says the squad he has for 99/00 is the best he's had! And yes, even with Vassilios Borbokis at right back!

99/00 - Finished 16th
00/01 - Finished 17th
01/02 - Who cares, we're going down, and we're dull as f**k.

But despite the broken promises, the utterly useless replacements for players who were only sold due to minor dips in form, the revolving door management scenario that's just happening, the replica kits falling apart, and the fact that one of our stands is called the Bombardier stand... we still go, we still pay £20 to watch crap (well I don't I watch Belper cos I get more satisfaction out of non-league football), we do it. And why do we do it?

Because no-one else will!
