Mate, you can’t support a financial group.

This immortal comment was posted during one of the funniest conversations that I have ever seen on Reddit. Basically, a user called “acken” was having a discussion about Man City on Reddit’s r/soccer subreddit when somebody realised that he had a NYC FC flair / badge beside his name. You see, acken, who supposedly supported the MLS team New York City FC, had used the word “we” while talking about Manchester City:

So you’re saying that we should be worried?

After noticing acken’s NYC FC badge, a Reddit user called “the-glimmer-man” responded with:

I don’t see what NYC FC would have to worry about, no.

In response, acken went on to try and justify his usage of the word “we” by saying that it referred to the ‘members of Mansour’s financial group.’ You see, Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan is the owner of a company called Abu Dhabi United Group, which owns an English football club called Manchester City. He also the majority owner of New York City FC, which is a newly-established football team in the MLS. This prompted Reddit user wwxxyyzz to respond with:

Mate you can’t support a financial group

The ridiculous nature of the comment (and the fact that it even had to be stated in the first place) has seen it being re-quoted multiple times.
