‘Shameless’ Man City chant at Nottingham Forest slammed online

Manchester City enjoyed a big win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend as they kept the Premier League title race in their own hands going into the final three weeks of the season. The Blues recorded an ugly 2-0 win at the City Ground, despite the home side having the better of the chances, to move within one point of Arsenal with a game in hand.

The win itself isn't the only thing that has got people talking today, though, with the actions of Man City fans at the City Ground also a key talking point. Throughout the match, the City away end looked to antagonise the home supporters by singing songs in reference to Nottingham Forest's point deduction.

Forest were handed a four-point deduction last month and City fans were keen to rub their noses in it, despite their club having 115 charges against them. One particular Man City chant that has wound people up on social media is one heard below.

Football fans slam Man City chant

Despite the chant clearly being sung tongue in cheek, it has managed to wind up several fans on social media. Individuals on X have been quick to criticise Man City for the chant, pointing out that karma could come back to haunt them.

One person said: “Pot, kettle, black. If Forest sang that same chant they wouldn’t have been enough time to sing it 115 times. Another said: “Bit rich coming from them isn’t it. Just the 115 cheating charges concerning them.”

A third added: ” I thought it was Forest singing to Man city!”

One fan perhaps summarised the situation and current state of football better than anyone. They said: “Singing about boardrooms and governing bodies decisions… Modern football is depressing.”
