Man City - the new bitters?

Recommended Posts

Reminds me a little of Arsenal fans when Wenger had his peak Arsenal teams. They thought themselevs the moral guardians of football and watching them get fucked by Bolton and Stoke when by all the fans,Wenger opinion they should have just rolled over and let themselves get passed off the field. It was all the more amusing that they gladly ignored they had some right dirty cunts in the side themsleves.

 

The Cup final of 01 showed everything, they dominated the game,but only got one scruffy goal and then thought we should have just given up until Owen bureied them late on

Can't laugh too much, they all said the same about us and Klopp after the Atletico game. 

That's fair enough

I don't like how Athletico play, it's not the defensive football but the whole shithousery they emoy. But at the end of the day they did what they needed to do and capitalised on Adrian mistake

I'd argue their 2018-19 title win is by some distance Guardiola's greatest achievement in football. It’s the one time a side of his has been pushed all the way unexpectedly and prevailed over the course of a season.


Real Madrid pushed them very hard a few times.

 

In 2010 Barca finished with 99 to Madrid’s 96.

 

In 2011 Barca finished with 96 to Madrid’s 90. 
 

Mourinho toppled him in 2012 & then he cried off.

another expensive defender who will prove to be shite. 

Have to say I don't know anything about Benfica but the people who do don't seem to think Dias is a 60m player. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see him play about 2 seasons as City's 3rd choice CB before a 20m move to Valencia or Wolves or something.

Was listening to the radio today and some pundits we saying that at some point the money surely has to stop for Pepe and he actually has to start coaching the players he has and improve them rather than just throwing koneh at it. 

 

I think some people are finally starting to see him for what he is. A cheque book manager.

It’s hilarious to think that they decided Van Dijk’s price tag was too high. Assuming he’d have gone there, they would have saved over £100m this window alone, have just won a fourth consecutive league title and fuck knows what else had they not dicked around on that deal.

Finally?

It's not like he popped up from Newport County just a couple of seasons ago.

I could be wrong but I think they pulled out as Virg has zero interest in signing for them. Just trying to save face on amazon prime.

500m on defenders in last 2-3 years

They’re going to need a new stadium sponsorship deal at this rate

Apparently its a variable sponsorship deal. It is all linked to the overpriced defender index! The more overpriced and shit they are the more they get in sponsorship. 

 

Looks like this will be  a bumper year for them.

I don't wish to put words in Leytons mouth but I believe what he is saying is people in the media are finally mentioning the fact he just spends money as opposed to be the greatest coach of all time with no context whatsoever.

Just had a look at Pep's career and he doesn't half have a blind spot with defenders. He's spent £1.3b on players in his management career - but almost half of it (£564m) has been spent on defenders, £433m since he's been at Manchester City alone. Nearly half a billion quid on a position where you need four fucking players.

 

To put into perspective, he's spent nearly as much on defenders as Jurgen has spent on all players throughout his entire managerial career: £663m. And just £135m of that has been on defenders, and £76m of that was on van Dijk who's been unquestionably the best defender in the league since he arrived.

 

But Pep isn't a chequebook manager, oh no. He's a coach.

Bit like the one on the OFAH 'Jolly Boy's outing' .
