Alright blues! This is the brand spanking new BlueMoonRisingTV website. Just like the Pep revolution at City, this is a new era for us too. After months of work it’s here and we’re proud of it. You can still find us on YouTube and what we actually make will stay more or less the same, but we wanted a way of interacting with you more directly.
You can now find all our content in one place. It will change as we work out the best way to use our content - it could be using three at the back, wing-play, or even route one. Who knows? But it’s exciting and with your help we want to be the best place for City content around. One of the new ideas is the matchday feed - a handy place where you can see what City fans are talking about at any point during a live game. Whether it’s a KDB 25-yard screamer or a Kelechi hat-trick, you’ll be able to see what fellow Blues are talking about, plus there will be the usual pre-game and post match analysis too. All these ideas and more have already been used on The Football Republic during the Euros, which leads onto the next thing nicely…
We’re part of The Football Republic. They’re a brilliant fan-centered network, based across Youtube, Facebook and Twitter. Run by Shotglass Media, it’s like our version of the City Football Group. The best bit about this is being able to put Chelsea, Spurs and United fans back in their boxes after a 6-1 demolition (hopefully). Fear not though, every one of us at BMRTV are passionate, life-long City fans. Alex, Walter, Elliot, Steven, Paul - we really were there when we were sh*t. Braydon maybe wasn’t, the lucky lad, but the little legend probably knows more about City that most of us!
What our involvement with The Football Republic does mean is that we can share their City content and they will share ours - and we all know the world is not a very pro-City place right now, so we can help get the message out there. For too long the media drum has been banged by the same few teams, and we honestly believe we can help change that. Even if it’s just a bit.
Football is about you, the fans and we need you to be involved more than ever. Simply put, without you we can’t exist. It’s the most exciting era in the club’s recent history, we’ve got the best manager in the world and a world-class squad - not to mention our excellent academy setup. City’s plans are big, and it feels right that ours should be too.
Get involved, say hello if you see us at games and let us know what you think of our new look. We’re always looking for new City fans to speak to as well. If you write a blog, make videos yourself or if you just want to get on our fancams, then get in touch. Tell us what you think of the site, tell us if there’s any changes you’d make, and even if you just want to rant about ‘Typical City’ - we’re here and all ears. You can find us on Twitter and can also head to our Facebook page for Facebook Live videos every evening.
That’s it from us - over to you! Anything you’d like to see let us know, and in the meantime keep watching and supporting BMRTV. It goes without saying that we value every view, like and comment. It means we can be a real voice for City fans all over the world. Without the fans, football is nothing.
Hope you enjoy the new era. See you all on the site!
