Man City - the new bitters?

They’ve commandeered the electronic advertising boards on the last stretch of the M602 to advertise their new kit with the caption - This Is Our City - with the ‘our’ emphasised.

 

Smacks of ‘senior club in the city.’

 

Their new kits are made by Puma, and I reckon even Warrior would look at them and go, "Too much mate". Blooshite fans will buy them in their droves though.

Article about their FFP charge from

UEFA in the Echo today, quoting some “football finance expert”.

 

The rest of it is ground already well covered, but had never heard this mentioned before:

 

“And I think the third area where Manchester City are being criticised, and which a lot of people would actually say is a really smart thing to do, is that the guy who wrote the FFP rules for UEFA was headhunted by Manchester City and he’s now their finance director. In any other business, you’d think that was a really smart thing to do, but in football, because there’s always finger pointing and whataboutery, it means there are criticisms of the club. Whether that’s true or not, that’s not for me to say.”

If anything, in football there is not remotely enough finger pointing. Football is a world that operates almost entirely separate of external regulation. Dominated by crooks from top to bottom -- demonstrated in every inch of the business from lack of FFP enforcement to dubious finals played in Azerbaijan to World Cups in Qatar. It's one of the ugliest businesses in the world. City are the cherry on that unseemly cake

So you're suggesting constantly pointing the finger will ultimately yield results? Sweet.

Stupid fucking thing to say, the point is it's not just business, it's competitive sport.  With cheating the competitiveness is diminished, when the competitiveness is diminished the sport diminishes leading to an inevitable decline of the sport in some, or all, ways. It's not rocket science.

Well & also he's not likely to get well soon either is he? 

I'm sure if we wait long enough one of them will pop up to claim the media all think Klopp can heal him or something.

Since it's a Man City topic:

 

I would like to go to the match on November 9th, Liverpool-City, I got offered a ticket for 350 pounds, ideally I'd take a few and they are supposedly next to each other. Is that an acceptable deal or getting ripped off?

I've been looking all over, and the cheapest I've found is with two nights in a hotel and the ticket for 950 pounds. not including plane ticket. It's just getting impossible to get over more than once, maybe twice a year. This though with hospitality and a random legend meet and greet. A stand alone ticket is nigh on impossible to get. 

 

At least hope we get a FA cup match somewhere near London as it's much cheaper to get to those kind of games. Only problem with that is sitting fucking still when we score haha.

I wonder if certain payments to media hacks are keeping them from being constantly attacked over their human rights record and blatant disregard for the financial fair play rules? 

If we get over 90 points again and finish 2nd, way ahead of 3rd, it's going to be very demoralizing. 

Oil cheating cunts

Most other fans don't seem to give a shit about the morality of them, they just hate us so much they cant see the bigger picture, perhaps that will change when they do a clean sweep of domestic trophies again.

I did like the article pointing out the utter hypocrisy of st pep and his yellow ribbon the fraudulent twat...

They threatened to tie UEFA up in court for 10 years. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what would happen to media organisations if they misplace a comma.

 

The most prominent dissenters in the media all seem to be based outside the UK which says it all.

Starting to get a good feeling about this season and it's more to do with them than us.

Guariola is starting to morph in Mourinho, his press conferences seem dour and he's just constantly seems to be bemoaning his luck, injuries, not being able to afford players (?!).

I thought it was some kind of amateur Ferguson act but I'm starting to think he's coming apart a bit. Dunno why, maybe constantly having your achievements undermined with the 'yeah but money' fucks you up after a while.

The owner desperately wants the CL trophy as the major status symbol, and he’s paid a lot of money to Guardiola and for players Guardiola wants, to get it. So far, Guardiola has failed to deliver. I reckon he’s under pressure behind the scenes.
