Mate, you can’t support a financial group.

This immortal comment was postedĀ duringĀ 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 someone realized that he had a NYC FC flair beside his name.

You see, acken, who supposedly supports the MLS team New York City FC, 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 is also the majority owner of New York City FC, which is a 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 someone had to state in the first place) has led to users parodying it and quoting it multiple times.
