Manchester City's request for Valentine's Day poems goes as badly as you'd expect

It was always going to end badly, wasn't it?

Manchester City's social media team marked February 14 with a special Valentine's Day poetry competition for all their followers. Unfortunately for them, it was swiftly gatecrashed by followers of Manchester's other football club.

'Let's see who's got the best #ValentinesDay rhymes,' a tweet from City's official Twitter account read, encouraging followers to complete a special City-themed Valentine's Day poem.

Spying an opportunity, some United supporters used this as a chance to remind City and their fans that their recent successes have come as a result of their extremely wealthy owners. Y'know, the sort of thing you'd expect, really.

Here's a sample of the replies the tweet received.

Ah, of course...

With a good few hours of Valentine's Day still remaining at the time of writing, we can almost certainly expect a few more of these before the day is done.
