Manchester City Fans Can't Even Fill Out The Soccer AM Allocation

Manchester City Fans Can't Even Fill Out The Soccer AM Allocation

Soccer AM released the following statement on Thursday afternoon, calling all Manchester City fans to appear on their Saturday morning show.

"We're looking for six Manchester City fans to be our fans of the week. If you and five friends who fancy coming down to the show this week, email [email protected] Please include the names and ages of your group, plus a contact number."

Two days later, six people turned up to the studio, but because of the eight-seat allocation, people predictably began to joke that they can't even fill the stand.

"They can't even fill the Soccer AM seats" said one Twitter user, while another said: "If there are six Manchester City fans at Soccer AM there be none left for the game. Surely they wouldn't want an empty home end."

The jokes continued on social media throughout the show:

People Can't Believe How Bad Carlton Cole's Performance Was On Soccer AM

published at10 months ago

Back in September, Manchester City suffered a shock opening defeat in their Champions League match against Lyon. For the reigning Premier League champions, however, it seems like they lacked the fan support they would have hoped for.

Apparently, the Etihad Stadium was under the 50,000-plus attendance that many people were expecting.

Reports suggested that up to half of the seats were left empty.

The Transport for Greater Manchester, for example, had warned people that the city could be busy today due to the Champions League fixture.

For the Manchester City fans, at least they could take comfort in the fact that Pep Guardiola had occupied at least one of the empty seats.

The City boss was forced to watch the match from the stand due to a ban, with assistant coach Mikel Arteta running the show from the touchline.

The running joke will only continue after this incident on Soccer AM.
