Vital Manchester City received the following article from newbie, Winkwink.

I think it’s about time ALL City fans boycotted this publication. It’s the only way we will get them to change the craven editorial bias against City and the distortion of the forums by the so called moderators.

Why have I arrived at that conclusion?

As any Blue will surely know, trying to post on the forms is becoming increasingly difficult. Rags seem to be able to produce any number of bland, inane posts without any apparent attempt by the moderators to filter there input. Ok I can just about live with that but when I, as many others have found, attempt to respond to the ignorance and blatant lies more often than not the comments are not posted.

What can the agenda be of the moderators other than maintaining the bias? The MUEN should be representative of the whole community not simply a narrow some glory hunting section of not particularly bright United fans. Its only very rarely do you see an intelligent and insightful comments posted by a United fan. Most of the other contributions which are numerous are puerile, intended solely to wind up Blues and without any class.

Rags will claim that I can’t take the banter but without the ability to post responses it’s not banter it’s a monologue. Time to act now.

They need hits to earn advertising revenue. Spread the word and treat them as they have treated us for years. Ignore them, marginalise them and make them pay through their pockets. It would be great to see MCFC set up some kind of forum.

I appreciate that this might cut across Vital Manchester City but we need something to counter the MUEN. The rot has to stop.

The quality of the MCFC sites coverage already far outstrips the increasingly poor and unimaginative and hardly news delivering MUEN. Garry Cook has achieved a great deal at the club. A further helping hand in ridding rid of the need to access the MUEN would be a wonderful gift to the fans.

The disgruntled Blue also sent VMC the following poll question…

Is the Sports Editor of the MUEN responsible for the poor coverage of City?

To vote, use the poll question to the right hand side of this article.
