There are two common traits to be found in every Manchester City fan: enduring resolve and a black sense of humor. Throughout City’s tumultuous history, its ardent supporters have laughed in the face of adversity, rejoiced in the farcical, and shed enough tears (of both joy and despair) to fill a thousand Olympic-size swimming pools. The phrase “typical City” has become a colloquialism amongst fans, acknowledging the team’s consistent knack of doing things in an unconventional manner. Examples include being the first and only team to score and concede 100 league goals in one season (1957-58); the only reigning Football League champions to be relegated the following season despite having scored more goals than any other team in the division (1937-38); and leaving it until the 94th minute of the final game of the season to win their first title for 42 years (2011-12).
