Typical City was set up at the start of the 2012/13 season to fill what we saw as a gap in the blogging world. There wasn’t much good coverage of City, and we took it upon ourselves to do some. However, that isn’t really the case anymore.
Yes, there are loads of bad City sites and writers. The ones which just sit there regurgitating transfer news and lineups and act like everyone should be grateful for it. Or the writers who have worked out you can make money by doing endless columns about media agendas and other conspiracy theories. You know the ones.
But there is a lot of quality stuff out there now too.
The likes of Jonathan Smith at ESPN and Sam Lee at Goal do great work. Our very own David Mooney continues to produce the Blue Moon Podcast which is quite simply unrivalled. The quality of the output from the club itself is now incredible and probably the best of its kind from any club in the world.
All of this means that there isn’t really a need for Typical City anymore, and so we are saying goodbye. The world doesn’t need another purposeless football site.
As a group, we have enjoyed every single second of running Typical City. The support we have received from our readers to keep this place running has been truly humbling. We have outgrown this place a bit, but it is no exaggeration to say that this site has changed the lives of those of us who founded it.
It all comes down to this, really: Thank you all so very much! We wouldn’t have been able to do this without you 🙂
We will still be on twitter in the usual places and you can still contact us on atTypicalCity@gmail.com with any questions.
