    Man City - the new bitters?

    Yeah and in the 60s and 70s they tended to buy big if I remember. They always seemed a woefully managed club who tended to throw money at a problem, while clubs like Arsenal brought through Brady, O'Leary and Stapleton, Forest and Derby built teams up from the ground (taylor and clough to be fair) and we bought shrewdly with the likes of Keegan or Hansen.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Pep is not an idiot and it wouldn't amaze me at all if he left for Juve, who are incidentally one of the biggest clubs in the world with one of the greatest players of all time in their ranks (i know he's a shithouse but credit where it's due). He has a very decent shout of winning the Champions League there. Like him or dislike him, he is a great manager, because even if he has always been blessed with great players and money to throw at a problem, he has managed to get all these world class egos moving as one. That is the mark of a top manager. This season, there are rumblings such as with Sane that it could kick off at any time. Losing good pros like Kompany in a dressing room is a problem for City, because his influence is as big off the pitch as on it. If Pep lesves, I think it could kick off good style between them all. Given that we are by far the second best team in the league, if him leaving helps us win the league, then happy days.

    I always think he looks embarassed by it all. I wonder if a big deal was made regarding the ffp, would he walk before the shit hits the fan.

    I think bar United, no other fanbase would kick up a fuss. Even they are probably torn as if it wasn't for City, we'd definitely win the next two titles. Gary Neville said that they fear City dominance coinciding with their club's decline. Pep will go next year imo and they still have to replace a lot of their legends like Fernandinho, aguero, david silva and kompamy in the next 12 to 18 months. Gundogan and Sane will be back playing for Bayern soon as well. There is no guarantee that their replacements will be as good. If they got a transfer ban or had ffp hanging over them, it coild massively impact even them.

    The only ones who seem concerned by it are the Mancs. Arsenal are a few years from a title challenge, Spurs are small time and Chelsea hate us more than the Mancs do. Everton think it's hillarious. No other club is really going to give a shit because they are fishing in a different pond.

    I'm not sure. They have pissed off the European establishment and eventually will piss off the English establishment. Eventually, it will level off. It might be when Pep fucks off and they have the inevitable problems of change of regime. Anyhow, they are going nowhere any time soon, but then again neither are we. We have a magnificent team. We will chase them all the way next season and have a good shot of winning the league. I do think we have to get over 100 points next season though and that is a bit mental.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Sounds a mad thing to say but both of us will easily get over 100 points next season imho. We are both just so superior to the rest. Think we need to adopt the attitude of going all out for the wins at Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, Goodison and the Emirates next season as City will take 9 plus points from those games.

    Am I below the belt watching this and wanting a few 6-9 month injuries for the city team?

    Great stuff. More time to relax for next season and with a point to prove.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Not real bloos them lads. They wanna be part of de redshite. Laughing and joking aside, it's like a civil war for Everton's soul. Speedo Mick would be Robin Hood and the foodbank blues would be his band of merry men bringing good cheer to all they meet red and blue. The Sheriff would be the blue with the baby from the Lyon match, who wants to hang them all outside the Everton Two shop for befriending reds.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Heard two younger blues giving it loads about Speedo Mick spending more time licking up to the redshite than he does making money for charity. A true legend and because he has an old school approach to our rivalry, they see fit to criticise him. I'd say there's more than a few other blues that feel the same way about him.

    If the Fa had given them a points deduction earlier in the season, then it would have made it magnificent. Us winning the league retrospectively would feel a bit hollow. Rightly or wrongly we were beaten by the better team this season. Their club, owners and clearly a lot of their players are a bunch of knobheads but they won the league by being a cracking side. Still it would be funny as fuck I suppose. They may get a points deduction next season though which could work out okay for us. Should UEFA give them a significant ban, then watch all these elite players fuck off.

    Liverpool is a predominantly immigrant city and predominantly Irish as well. The bad (and good to be fair) stereotypes of the city are essentially middle England's stereotype of the Irish. Throw a large population of people from around the world into the pot and while we love the Scouseness of it all, to middle England it's a nightmare. We are a rebellious city and they will never keep us down. The establishment has always feared us and this is nothing new. The twenty something or thirty something Chelsea Wolves, or City etc fan probably doesn't know or give a fuck about the ethnic make up of the city, but they are carrying on the stereotypes that their parents or grandparents have. The thing with the Everton fans is how baffling their behaviour is. They are from the city and get tarred with the exact same brush yet seem delighted to play the uncle sam role to the rest of the country and get handed the crumbs from their table. I mean the Stevie slipped on his arse song is horrible for me to hear but is fair game, but the other shite they sing is detestable. I can't comprehend how a large minority of their support can behave that way, yet profess a love for the city. They lost their success a long time ago, but jesus have they lost their pride. For what it's worth, I doubt the likes of Ederson know the connotations of Hillsborough or Sean Cox, but the english ones do. Their club should take ownership of it and apologise for any offence caused. They won't because they want to be the darlings of the establishment and every knobhead from Middlesborough to Portsmouth is happy for them to have that crown if it stops the Scousers. Why admit what they don't have too.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Think De Ligt makes sense. He will become one of the best defenders of his generation and could be with us for 10-12 years. Don't get me wrong I love Joey Gomez. He is a top young player but he will have a spell out next season I've no doubt. It's more inevitable than orcs in Burnley and Stoke voting for Brexit. We were just lucky that Virg never got injured this season and Joel Matip was terrific. Joe can cover right back if needs be. Knowing the Dutch, De Ligt can probably play in 2-3 positions. No harm having Alli, 6 top defenders in front of him and a really good number 2. I've heard it that Jurgen loves young Kelleher so we might not even be spending on a 2nd keeper. We could sell Lovren to fund a good reliable lb should robbo need the odd break or be injured for a spell. Would love a bit more of competition in attack, whether it be a really good young player who plays like Bobby as he is so unique to our game. Divock deserves a good bit of game time next season, going on his recent displays.
