Man City - the new bitters?

The BBC's sport headlines are just full of sycophantic bullshit. It's like Guardiola has performed some sort of a miracle.

It's every media source at this stage. Typical fare:

It's one of the Great football tales. Get a free stadium. Multi billionaires buy club. Invest a billion or so in a massive squad. Give the manager unlimited funds.

 

Just how did they do it?

Yeah, martin 'bluto' smauel 'this isnt germany' where Bayern have just won their 9th (is it?) consecutive title. city have won 3 of the last 4 Premier Leagues and if it wasnt for us last season, would be half way to emulating Bayern.

 

Hopefully, we can go again next season but as we need a rebuild, my head says it will be even tougher even if my heart says hell yeah. city will be the team to beat. again.

89 points maximum. For all the bollocks about what 69 points would or would not get you, that wouldn't come close to winning the league outside of 2016. We'll be back up there next year.

City and the sycophancy they probably pay for has done wonders for removing the last vestiges of passion I had for the game. Yeah, 2018-20 was a wonderful, unexpected interlude that questioned their dominance, but the ineffectual FFP, court of arbitration shenanigans followed by this season have made it clear ‘normal’ service is resumed and is here to stay.

 

If nothing changes fundamentally at UEFA and the Premier League, a decade from now they’ll be second only to Real Madrid in terms of European Cups and will overtake their red neighbours for league titles within 20 years and, you know what? I’m fine with it.
 

It’s going to be highly amusing watching the game decline and a super league touted as the only thing that can possibly save it by the same pundits who reviled that concept while not just turning a blind eye to, but actively cheerleading for a corrupt, unsustainable and broken status-quo.

Making the big assumption that we get back to a high level next season, do people think it's a good thing for us that Chelsea are also in the mix rather than it being a two-horse race?

The way I see football, you can have a very good team and a shite \ no so good manager and you maybe win the domestic cups if you concentrate on them. You might even win the Europa or Champions League. But the latter of those two will be harder as UEFA's 'more games' means tactical nounse plays a greater part in winning the prize.

 

Similarly, very good teams with so so managers dont win the Premier League. Roll it all up and this is why, in my opinion, we won cups between 1990 and 2019 but not league titles.

 

Despite him being called a fraud on here by some, Tutchel is anything but. He's followed in Jurgen's steps to an extent. He has a very good team that lampard was out of his managerial depth with.

 

While the football authorities loosen the FFP regulation due to covid, teams like city and chelsea backed by oil nations and oligarchs will gain an advantage. This is the antithesis of what should be happening.

 

chelsea will likely be challengers next season. Sooner or later, united's plethoral of penalties which has handed them routes back into games they were either losing or drawing, will stop. The gimp is tactically inept like lampard. Yes, he will no doubt be able to frustrate teams like ourselves, city and chelsea with draws from time to time but that doesnt make him a tactical genius or mean he can alter his tactics when the penalty appeals arent answered.

 

Jurgen's task is going to be in either re invigorating the team to 'go again' or rebuilding it in selected areas, bringing in not only players hungry for success but also single minded winners.

 

I dont think it makes much difference if you have a two or three way fight for the title. it makes it more nervey to be part of but at the end of the day, you've still got to be top of the pile to win it.

Good thing, I reckon. Guardiola's style generally is to bludgeon his way to a massive lead, then watch the others fall away as the scoreboard pressure mounts so that the closing stages of the title race are more of a procession. The only exception really was 2018/19 but we saw the following season the effect that had on him and his team. This season has been more of a normal Guardiola title - except they started their charge a bit later (but got away with it as his main challenger has been Ole's united, which says it all).

 

If he's under pressure from Jurgen and Tuchel from the off next year I think they'll struggle to hit their usual rhythm - not saying they won't win it, but it's a good thing IMO.

I dont know how this Genius does it, he takes the second best team in the league and adds a sprinkle of magic (and another 4 first team players) and manages to win the league. Its a blueprint that all clubs should follow.

I nearly got caught knocking one out at 6.30 this morning as I read Micah Richards telling BBC just how good this fella is.

In a normal season the cunt is running scared of us.

Fuckin made up when he got rinsed in Gomorrah.

Those videos from the Emptyhad last night were absolutely pathetic. 
 

If I was a player, I’d look at those videos and think “what’s the fucking point?”.

What a bumbder.

 

I bet he was gutted there was nowhere open to celebrate by listening to some difficult jazz, sipping as small glass of  Château Lafite 178 red wine and eating caviar & hard-cooked egg with the yolks and whites chopped separately.

 

Klopp would have been drinking Erdinger from the players boots and playing air guitar to Master Of Puppets.

I see Newcastle players gave city a proper honour guard last night, no bitching about it, no historionics over it and lack of respect, unlike them cunts last season. Well done Toon players.

    • I'm sure there was some woeful decision made going into the 2010 or 2014 world cup where one colour was the norm ie Italy and France play in all blue, England and Germany in al white, The Netherlands in all orange, Spain in all red etc but i assumed that was jibbed off as it was awful. Pretty sure it didn't apply much in 2018 either. But i noticed, up until yesterday Italy had played in all blue and in the England  v Scotland game they could easily have gone with blue shorts for England and white for Scotland, but they didn't. There must be something definitive out there.      
    • Well you could say that about Edwards. He was the mastermind behind our summer transfer dealings after Suarez left. Edwards only got on track when he had klopp holding his hand. The very same could be true of spurs depending who they hire as manager.  I thought last season was interesting with kane. He seemed to have a couple of incidents with his ankles and be back in no time - in fact I seem to remember one point where he left the pitch like he might never walk properly again and he was back maybe the next match or the one after. Mourinho mentioned with one time he went off something like "it's one thing to play with one injured ankle, but it's another to play with 2". It makes me wonder if he's maybe taking injections or just playing through substantial pain to play. There's no doubt at the euros he doesn't look fit, he can barely turn.    His goals speak for themselves, but I think anyone who signs him is taking a bit of a gamble as I think it remains to be seen if he can continue. If I was betting, I would say he's more likely to head in the direction of Torres or schevcheko when they joined Chelsea than to continue the trajectory he's been on. 
    • Yeah, it's a terrible read that and just makes aldo sound jealous. 
    • Fucking hell Aldo!  I agree that Rafa is too good for Everton and they'll never truly accept him but when did Aldridge get so bitter?
