Quiet this thread these days, before today the last post was 19th Feb. 

 

Bunch of cunts are irrelevant when they aren't in direct competition 

Probably more to do with how shite we’ve been to be fair mate. All our focus has been in-house.

Plenty of Liverpool fans want city to win the title rather than United or even the likes of Chelsea or spurs. Our tribalism steps in before whats good for the sport too. City winning is such a non event it effects nobody emotionally what they do except maybe united fans. Throw in VAR and removing in the moment celebrations of goals, apathy towards stupid decisions and ridiculous competition changes eventually nobody will be arsed about football. 

As I said before, I could understand Everton wanting anyone to win before us. I want anyone to win before man united - mainly because I don't want them ahead of us in title counts and I want us to catch and overtake them. But aside from that, nothing would make me happier than a complete shit show and collapse at city. I hold no value to their title wins, which is maybe unfair on their players, but as a club they're cheats and their owners run a horrible country. Nobody can think it's ultimately good for our game having clubs like this - yet sadly through hatred many do.

I try to rationalise away City's trophies on the grounds that anything they win is meaningless because of a decade and more of cheating. My problem then,though, is that this doesn't appear to be the attitude of the mainstream sports media who continue to fawn all over Guardiola and give the club an easy ride. They don't seem to be at all concerned that, if you take Liverpool out of the equation, City have finished 19,26,15 and currently 17 points ahead of their next nearest rival over the past four years. THis position of dominance and near monopoly on domestic trophies has been bult on years of financial doping and outright cheating - and hardly anybody out there seems to give a toss. Staggering.

It's because they're all reliant on maintaining the myth of the best product . If people stop and think about what you've posted, perhaps they just switch off.

Probably because the rest of the country are happy we aren't winning. Even Man Utd seem to have meekly accepted their place as the shit team of Manchester.

The media will start calling them out when Man Utd start properly challenging them and I don’t mean Ole’s “we won’t let them run away it” challenge that he putting up at the minute 

Then you can be sure the likes of KFC’ groupie  Martin Samuel will start saying how unfair it is on plucky Man Utd and how bad it is for the English game

I don't think Samuel will say much, isn't his son employed by city? I'm sure there will be others that might though

They have a 1st team squad of 22 players plus a few kids. Those 22 players (including Foden and Garcia who were free) cost €916m. 

Our 22 cost €538. 

 

Under Klopp we have been doing outrageously well to be competing and beating them in the 2 big trophies over the past 3 seasons

I was astounded at the levels of this the last few years. A united sporting work colleague said that he'd rather finish outside the top 4 if that meant we didn't win anything in 19. As bitter bloo a comment a you'll hear in the brick. City won't be criticised as they've their hacks in the media well sorted but if their dominance continues and the "brand" of the league is damaged by being boring, it'll be interesting to see what the league's hierarchy does then.

I don’t understand what’s so difficult to understand, we’re on 19 the other twats 20 so it’s not rockets science. I felt the same way when Chelsea were stopping them winning 15, 16,17 etc. I’d rather the plastic clubs win 10 on the bounce it means nothing. The only real rivalry in English football is us and the Mancs everything else is WWE.

€916 officially.

 

Fuck knows how much more has been squandered on unofficial payments, donations to ‘foundations’, official board memberships of false companies, consultation through shell companies etc.

 

It was in the leaks that they conducted business this way.

 

They’re a modern day frankenteam and literally not a tear will be shed when they plummet back to where they belong. It’ll be a ‘remember when city were owned by despots trying desperately to sportswash their abhorrent behaviour to non citizens in their country and their secret little conflicts and dodgy allegiances. Mad wasn’t it?’

Barry Bennell: Convicted paedophile could give evidence on behalf of Man City

Convicted paedophile Barry Bennell could give evidence as a witness in Manchester City's defence against a civil claim brought by eight men sexually abused by the former coach.

Bennell is serving a 34-year jail term for abusing boys between 1979 and 1991 while at Crewe and Manchester City.

The claimants' barrister James Counsell QC said it was an "extraordinary decision" for City's lawyers to call Bennell as a witness.

There is a City fan on twitter who was really clued into the FFP stuff, he's a lawyer I believe and he's tweeting tonight that he's concerned they're in the shit with the PL. The investigation launched at the same time as UEFA just disappeared into thin air with no mention of it even after the CAS stuff. He reckons the court document below can only be about PL FFP. Bad timing for them seeing as 18 teams in the league hate them.

9 clubs wrote to CAS asking to them to throw the book at them. The rest weren't asked but if  there was something in it for them they would have signed it too. It's simple really, Liverpool or Utd winning brings in more cash for West Ham or Burnley than City winning.

Surely it's in the interests of every club in the PL to fuck this lot? It's in everyone's interest for them to not be able to buy titles and position in Europe. 

And hoover up all the cups using their squad until at least the semi-final.

"While the superleague proposals continue to attract widespread criticism, those involved in the negotiations insist part of the rationale behind them was to cool rampant spending that has imperiled the futures of some of the elite clubs as they seek to keep up with teams backed by wealthy benefactors, particularly those controlled by the Gulf nation states.

Documents reviewed by The Times showed each team would have had to submit detailed financial information to financial auditors, as well as agree to rules forbidding owners from artificially inflating teams’ balance sheets. Penalties for breaches included a suspension or ban from the competition, as well as millions of dollars in fines."

 

 

Wonder why they were the first to pull out, I really do...

 

We really need to get our shit together from the start of next season. While I won't hold my breath over the PL docking them points, there's no time-limit on their supposed breeches (like UEFA's 5-year limit).

    • He only lacked goals because he played a different role for us. Over a ten-year international career he’s scored one in three; for PSV it was nearly a goal every other game. 
    • That’s a pretty unfair selection of issues to concentrate on. I agree with the last few posts before yours that suggest he’s a rung or two below the standard we need as first choice (and the Klavan comparison was a pretty good one) but to use two examples to call him “poor or very poor” is unfair.   he is slow, that’s a given. Sometimes that pace stood out like a sore thumb, like the example you gave, but by and large that lack of pace was way less obvious than I expected it to be, which is credit to him given every team tried their utmost to exploit it.   and to also use zaha getting the better of him is cheap. Zaha gets the better of way better defenders than Nat regularly. Like saying Carra wasn’t a good defender cause of the times Henry made him look like a clogger.
    • Correct.  Even Fabregas and Richards said they would not have been able to continue the game as the Danes did.  I actually found the honesty from both of them refreshing.
    • We’re not monitoring Neuhaus in the Euros. It’s nonsense. Why would we? International football won’t tell you how a player is on a week-to-week basis. We already know everything we need to know from Edwards running his last couple of seasons through his computer. If we’re waiting, it’s to shift deadwood so we can free up funds, or because we’re not really interested (at this point at least).
    • Absolutely disgraceful that UEFA even considered it acceptable to ask did they want to play on, never mind allow it. Zero consideration of what every single player went through, it was obvious to everyone that that neither team was in a fit state to play.
        Completely disgusting and UEFA should be universally derided for that.
