Are we seeing the birth of a new nickname?
« on: October 14, 2017, 20:25:20 »
#Sharkteam

I've never been a massive fan of 'the Cityzens'. The name isn't exactly something you can rally behind however clever it is!

The blues, meh.

But 'The Sharks' has somewhat of a dangerous sound to it...

The Jaws theme tune as a chant...

It's taken. Abertay Uni are The Sharks, my son was club captain in his final year there, a few seasons back.
So, no thanks.

I don't recall it being spelt with the "y" back in the day - I think that's a bit naff - but I've always quite liked The Citizens as our alternative nickname.

What has Manchester got to do with sharks?

The Southport Sharks are just up the road from where I live

My badge, when I was a kid, said The Citizens

But I like a play on words so The Cityzens is an improvement for me

I have considered this for a few days and now acknowledge that Manchester has very little to do with bananas either!

I have decided to embrace the shark.

Sharks!!!! Sharks team!!!!

Are we a rugby team, an American football team? I hate it.

We could do much better with a lot of thought and imagination I would think. But in the meantime let's stick with The Cityzens or more correctly The Citizens. That's is my opinion, but I am old so free to ignore and let City youth supporters have the final say.

Never would read the Daily Fail or the Scum Sun.
I will read Mendys explanation and get back, a link to it would have been good.

City doesn't have a lot to do with socialist movements either.

and TBF, Manc had a lot more in common with Eagles but that was shunned!

Mancheter has a canals

Sharks are born through birthing canals

Just 'City' will do me

Lets face it there are many other teams called City, but only we are referred to as 'City'
