    IF our neighbours or Liverpool 'did a Leeds' and were relegated from the Premier League long term, would you be delighted or miss the banter and rivalry?

    I know it's probably never going to happen (or not in my lifetime at least) but I wonder what camp you are in?

    I remember being gutted when Leeds went down - I loved our away days at Elland Road and miss the post match banter with the Leeds supporters.

    Would love to see City do a leeds. Plastic club and it'd be great to see them go to dust. Pool, am not so sure. Love the derbies and they're a proper club so i reckon i would miss them if they went down. much rather see them finish 17th every year.

    The summer I would spend laughing would make up for the missing rivalry if Liverpool got relegated.

    Would love it. I still remember city's relegation in 1998 with a smile and them getting beat by Stockport the same year.

    I never want Leeds back to the Premier League.

    The rivalry with Liverpool has got exceedingly vile and bitter I find. I wouldn't miss them at all, there's no banter to be had with 'Pool fans because they always go on the defensive.

    It was hilarious seeing Shitty relegated. I find it almost as hilarious seeing their 2nd tier & 3rd tier stars coming on to talk about the current 'success' as if they have some sort of connection with it.

    Liverpool going down would also be a right laugh.

    Do you think either of them would shed a tear, or indeed shedded a tear, when we went down in the 70's or should we go down in the future?

    I don't think so...

    I'd rather them just be mediocre mid table clubs so we could still have a laugh beating them home & away every season. Liverpool are very close to that atm but with City's funding we're gonna have to put up with them at the top for some time.

    True. Liverpool fans are probably the most sensitive fans on the planet. Can't say anything without them taking it to heart.

    Different answers for each club.

    Liverpool I'd miss in the Premier League because they are a proper club- great history and built themselves up to where they are. Yes, the fans are morons but which club doesn't have moronic fans?

    City I would laugh my arse off if they collapsed and plummeted down to leagues. They have been given everything they have. Stadium- bought for them. Players- bought for them. The fact that they run their club with over 100% of their revenue being spent on wages is currently legalised cheating, grow your club by yourself and earn your own fecking money and property...

    City and Chelsea are very similar in that from being basically 'nothing' clubs they are competing for the top trophies because of influx of money.

    They have not earned the position they are in.

    Liverpool have a huge legacy.....which kin Kenny has pissed on... Their fans are utter twats though :)

    Not gonna lie, I think it'd be awful......Everton, Blackburn and Wigan as your local rivals? I mean come on.

    Hysterically temporarily of course, but I'd want them back up pretty swiftly.

    City I couldn't give a shit about, they're not a real club.

    Liverpool on the other hand are a proper club and as much as I hate them I also respect them. Be a massive shame for football if they weren't in the top flight.

    Sorry but that's crap. City are a proper club and the unpallatable fact that they've had a monumental influx of money doesn't change that.To suggest that Liverpool are a proper club simply because of their history but City aren't is crass.

    I would miss the derby games as would loads of fellow supporters.We have precious few rivalries anymore and the vast majority of games at OT lack atmosphere these days. Arsenal and Chelsea may be more recent rivals but in terms of real hatreds and rivalries nothing beats City,Liverpool and Leeds...yes I hate them but I'd like them back

    Hurts me to say but I'd miss Liverpool, I don't think I would want to see them go the Leeds route. City on the other hand can feck off back where they belong, they'd deserve it.

    One has to wonder if you've ever been to a derby game at OT or the old Maine Rd?

    And why do they deserve it? Because they have money:confused:

    Id be delighted if it happened to City.

    Would miss Liverpool after pretty short time, as they are a club that has made their place in the top of English football, and in Norway Liverpool supporters are a decent, non glory hunting bunch who more often than not make some good banter while still being decent supporters in general.

    Shitty can burn for all I care, they just piss me off these days. Especially all their "supporters"

    Why do people call a club plastic.

    Plastic is one of the longest lasting materials known to exist?! Call them paper, or something guys!

    I also don't get the bitterness over sugardaddy owners, and it is bitterness. United is not on a level playing field with probably 99% of the professional clubs in Europe. How United got to its position is in my opinion irrelevant. Calling United a proper club because we happen to support a club that got in on the ground level of world popularity is fortuitous, but doesn't give us a right to have more money than anyone else.

    I get it, City is getting there the easy way. Ok, everyone knows that, chin up, move on, stop crying about it.

    I personally welcome the new challenge from City. It makes things more exciting and more invested.

    Two places at once.
    Liverpool, no way. Not counting the supporters, they are a great club with a very rich history. Our rivalry with them is one of honour, in a way because both teams have been/are jelous of the others success and always try to outdo each other.

    City, yeah. No worries. I didn't miss them when they fecked off to where they really belong the last time and I wouldn't miss them if it were to happen again. The fact that, right now, the whole club believes that possibly winning one league in nearly 40 years makes them a bigger club than us is just one reason why I dispise them. They've thrown around half a billion pounds to possibly win this title, yet they gloat like it was always mean't to be. Small club, shit fans, prostitutes of football. feck them.

    feck em both, one is a plastic, soulless, undeserving club, the other caters for vile, racist, hypocritcal cretins who bear a victim complex.

    Would be happy to see them both rot, we can go back to maintaing our fierce yet enjoyable rivalry with Arsenal.
