This is our City: British Media and Anti City Bandwagon want Pep to fail, The FA control match officials.

British Media and Anti City Bandwagon want Pep to fail, The FA control match officials.

I absolutely categorically support Pep Guardiola in his stance with the Football Associations meddling with match officials via the back door of the PGMOL, I absolutely understand why Pep is confused by what has been going on in English football since the arrival of Alex Ferguson and his own arrival.

Most of you anti City bandwagoner's will claim it's a conspiracy, that I wear a tin foil cap and it's all in my head, that's all well and good until it's your club who also ends up suffering from injustice. You whine like little babies when it happens to you but, as soon as it happens to Manchester City you're all laughing your backsides off plastering Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with your Emoji's.

Since Pep Guardiola's arrival almost everyone other than Manchester City and City fans have been gunning for Pep, and wanting him to fail and that includes the likes of the British Media, Robbie Savage constantly bad mouthing City, Jamie Carragher can't hide his allegiance to Liverpool and has slated City and Pep on many occasions, Michael Owen is another culprit. BT have had a hugely publicised agenda against Manchester City and even Sky Sports couldn't help but have a pop at Raheem Sterling today after the Burnley win instead of crediting City for the hard fought win against a 14 man Burnley.

Most recent facts:

THE English Football Association who also head the PGMOL board (Professional Game Match Officials Limited), appointed Anthony Taylor is an English professional Football Referee from Wythenshawe, a market town in Trafford, Greater Manchester, home of Man United to officiate the high profile title fighting match between Manchester City and current table toppers Chelsea. He's from Greater Manchester ? WTF I always assumed a Referee wasn't allowed to officiate a match within their home location? OK Trafford isn't Manchester but it's surrounded by Manchester and it's home to United. Now He claims to support non-League side Altrincham, but many have claimed that he's been spotted on quite a few occasions in the crowd at Old Trafford. This particular game against Chelsea honestly came as no surprise to me as Taylor has a short history of screwing City, Admittedly we didn't turn up against Leicester City in 2016 but, he didn't help matters by gifting Leicester advantage. Against Arsenal in 2016 Taylor helped them make a comeback and needlessly decided to yellow card two City players just before the final whistle.

Now I'm not going to defend Sergio Aguero or Fernandinho for their actions against Chelsea BUT, had Anthony Taylor rightfully sent off David Luiz for smashing in to Aguero and send him flying. (No Taylor put his whistle to his lips and then bottled it). Then Aguero's rash retaliation on Luiz and the brawl the followed would have never come to pass. For the entire match Anthony Taylor allowed Chelsea to ruff up City and not end up with a single caution or yellow card, but as soon as City players gave as good as they got out flew his cards.

Manchester City are kicked, shoved and assaulted but that's not a problem as our players can stand up to it. Our problem is when we give as good as we get, then we're punished for it and our opponents either just get away with it or get a little verbal telling off three or five times before a yellow even appears.

Same thing with Lee Mason against Burnley, every incident went Burnley's way. Burnley turned up to ruff our players up and when City players gave as good as they got, out flew his cards. Again I'm not defending Fernandinho but as far as I'm concerned our players got frustrated, including Fernandinho because the Referee was without any shadow of doubt bias in favor of Burnley, so much so that he tried to get them back in the game and a few City players were fouled without caution let alone a card.

Now all our players are shown red cards but David Luiz, Cesc Fabregas, Nathaniel Chalobah, Marcos Rojo escaped red cards and bans. Now recently I've seen players make the same foul David Luiz made on Sergio Aguero, they all got penalized so there's clear and blatant inconsistency and I strongly believe the English Football Association and the PGMOL are behind it, in blatant attempts to manipulate the outcome of the league.

An ex Referee came out in the Media recently admitting, that they and other Referee's were asked to change the outcome of games by their bosses. Since that revelation for some unknown reason there has been a media blackout on the subject, nothing more was said and no one is asking questions and ruffling feathers?

Now the PGMOL and Match Officials are currently not accountable for their actions and that in my opinion is a disgrace, it sets a platform for Referee's to do as they please and not have to answer to anyone other than the FA. Their bosses who are far more concerned about protecting them, than they are punishing them with appropriate and proportionate punishment and consequences that the clubs and players end up with and or in.

Just to give this article some balance I stress that I only believe four clubs truly benefit from the Football Associations meddling in the English top flight, they are Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Man United, more so Man United, Liverpool and Chelsea. On the rare occasion where Leicester City won the title I believe they were also at work. Even further balance by saying not all Premier League Referee's are poor or corrupt but most of them are. We've lost games fair and square, like our matches against Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City recently when we never turned up, those matches were well officiated. I'm not saying every game in the English leagues are manipulated by Referee's, just the important fixtures that decide title fights.

Now Pep Guardiola has every right to choose not to speak to the media, or be provoked into answering questions that he doesn't wish to answer. He has a point when he says he needs to get to grips with the rules, as there really is two sets of rules for Referee's to follow when officiating. Inconsistency and constant meddling by Referee's are currently a big issue in English football, I'm not saying it doesn't happen in other countries around the world either.

Pep Guardiola isn't here to entertain the British Media or you anti City bandwagoner's, we all know you want Manchester City and Pep Guardiola to fail. Our Club and Players are now getting the message, so keep it up, keep it all up, because we will come out fighting every time like we did against a 14 man Burnley and we will prevail.

Every match from now on needs to be treated like we're playing against 14 men.

We're right behind you Pep, we've got your back.

Comon City.


  1. Excellent article,agree 100%.

    Could not agree with you more. Everyman and his dog want us to fail. Just watched Rojo dive two footed on Zaha also his two footed tackle on the Everton number 17 also yesterday Jones diving in two footed on the West Ham player.Not a single red card in all these instances.Sorry the West Ham player was sent off for receiving the two footed tackle from Jones.The Media plus match officials equals the System.

  3. I think the fact our owners are arabs and all the media are jewish owned together with the fact that all the maine old money clubs .like mufc.chelsea. arsenal. Liverpool.spurs are all none arab owned whats that word that pops up now and then.. institutinal rasism is rife within the premier league..who can dispute or deny it..pray tell me

  4. U need to share's so true
    because pep kick out England No.1 keeper
    now everyone is against him
    #Freepep from badminds

  5. Best article I've read on City for years. Then again I was saying the exact same thing to my Dad after the match. Mason is a crook like most of them. It stinks to high heaven, it's a sham. I've never been so pissed off after victory than yesterday. Then you see the west ham game with Jones and the sending off and the offside goal and just think..what's the f****** point. Which is probably the desired effect

    Well said Jason but I still think you have been a little bit conservative with this article. We have been told by respected
    Press people who want to remain in the shadows for the time being that there is a clear co_ordinated conspiracy by the English media and press which
    also involves the fa and other organizations against Manchester city their owners and their fans which is so sad and just shows what corruption in English football is all about. Remember who's names were on a certain letter published by a media outlet into who wanted illegal rule changes in football ffp.please let fans choose which media are given the rights to football. Say no to bt

    What you have missed out in your fantastic article is that the media can lie and mislead people into believing every word they say. I have been a city fan for 52 years and still remember when we had no money and were still always the last match shown on match of the day so leave them to it, they will have to change their minds when Pep ends up winning everything here as well. Carry on Pep it will turn out right in the end!

    until the club let the managers (same as Pellegrini) come out with criticism of the ref when they are clearly over poor as Mason was, the sending off would have been dealt with differently with certain other clubs, you only have to see two Rojo terrible challenges in the last few weeks to see this. then nothing with change as absolutely zero attention is being drawn to it. So even thought the Fernandinho may have been a sending off the countless 50/50's that go the oppositions way will continue as there is no media attention on then at all because pep's mouth is kept shut unlike Mourinho's who now seems to get opposition players sent off for his own teams fouls and offside goal after goal allowed, City do not have the advantage of being the number one club in the league like Munich and Barca bad decisions are going to be ignored in Fernandinho wasn't sent off you'd have had rag and scouse filled media dong their best to get retrospective action against him. Unlike in the case of Rojo which merited a mention. The club has to forget the we're going to be a classy team rubbish and role their sleeves up to fight. Let pep say what he thinks when reffing is a poor as yesterday don't shackle him. Otherwise ref will continue with these poor as hell displays with a already rag and scouse media ignore it, slap it in their faces every game or nothing will change

    I fully agree- this has been going on for many years. there are many in the RED media including hugely biased so- called expert commentators who can't wait for City to fail at every hurdle. All I can say is what goes around..

  10. Anonymous3/1/17

    totally agree with everything you say. I can see this, it is quite obvious. only henry and Rednap are fair; sadly I see that some city surporters think more about one player who I've always thought overrated Hart over the team. something us city fans should be thinking about. no one is bigger than the club, Toure, Aquero, and not Hart. add for the ageing regaurd is not gaudiola fault, given the time man city will be unbeatable, stop being so negative city fans and start supporting your team.

  11. I apologize for the delay in publishing your comments, I have to do so as a few times I've had thousands of for instance, United fans spamming insults and being disgusting, unable to keep it clean. I'm aware I haven't covered everything, some things slip my mind, I do however try to keep it as short as possible so not to keep you here for too long, nothing worse than an article that just goes on forever. Appreciate your time and that you agree, it's not just us anymore who are starting to be vocal about it. I can see that eventually blowing up, it's a ticking time bomb and the sooner it does, the better for English football as things need to change.

    Before the Fernandinho incident a Burnley player went flying two footed at Navas. If he hadn't jumped 2 feet in the air he would have ended up in row z.

  13. Don't worry to much about the corrupt English media and press Jason. Nobody takes notice of them anymore... Just look what happened in the UK and the US with recent events. Because of Peps post match interview with the scum get ready for the insults from the corrupt English media and press. You know the ones Jason, City 10 years behind the rags and City have no history etc. These comments alone should tell you all you need to know about the co ordinated conspiracy within the corrupt (proven) English media and press. We, the fans, have a right to choose our own media outlets to watch sport or general TV. At the moment we are being forced into subscribing to companies like sky sports and BT sport which are clearly discriminating both racially and verbally against us. We are being mis-sold BT sport and sky sport. Vamos el city. Football for all. Equally.

  14. Good article, not paranoid ffp proves the moment we are forced in a way to subscribe to sky and BT for football,but as recent world events have shown their influence is now the equivalent of sewer rats with the public,so much that we can now say that we are clearly being mis sold sky sports and BT city fans we clearly feel a sense of discrimination and unfairness in clear fake stories by the corrupt English media and press and without doubt there is clear co_ordination by the English media and press in hate agendas against us and the people of Manchester in general.we must be able to choose which media we want and therefore which media has the rights to Manchester city for the Fa they are corrupt to the core that's why David gill is there to influence in favour of his beloved end of.
