Manchester City drew their home game against AS Roma yesterday evening, in front of what looked like a half-empty Etihad crowd. Earlier in the evening, Paul Scholes took a swipe at Manchester City’s fans for being rather quiet, and now Rio Ferdinand has followed suit and had a sly dig at the Citizens’ fans for not showing up.
It does seem odd that they want to extend their stadium by an additional 15,000 seats when they cannot fill out a Champions League game against one of Europe’s best sides in the form of Roma…
How many empty seats are there at the city vs Roma game by the way….big CL game & fans would rather Ramsays Kitchen or something at home
Expanding the stadium for what though?? For who though???
