emerging shark - I am a realist though it doesn't end there. I am also someone who thinks that ackowledging reality does not mean that you then allow yourself to become so debased in pursuit of your goal that you take 'realism' to a new low.
City and their fans were more than happy to accept Shinawatra and his money, despite the fact that there were clear human rights allegations against him from respected sources and that corruption was there in the background (later to be brought into the foreground). So, whilst it might take some serious money to compete at that level it doesn't mean you have forget that other things might be more important than winning a football trophy. It's not like it was a choice between death and glory for City. It was a choice between doing what lots of other clubs do and inviting a corrupt human-rights abuser to fund the party (which in the end only worked as a stepping stone to the untold riches they now find themselves with from others who I am hardly sold on).
A detestable club. I LOLed when I checked Ceefax last night.
And I should add that just because I acknowledge reality, it doesn't mean I have to like it. In the case of the state of English football I very much don't like it.

An advert for our season tickets for next year, put together entirely independently by some of our fans. It goes some way to explaining disenchantment amongst a certain demographic of football fan.
A rush and a push and the land that we stand on is ours
It has been before
So it shall be again
And people who are uglier than you and I
They take what they need, and just leave
