    Obviously the cash reduces the achievement but let’s not forget you need a bit of luck to win a cup, let alone two.

    I know football is cyclic, my hope is even with all the talent at their disposal they will not be able to replace Kompany, Aguero and Silva and continue to try and play take the tinkle football except in European away games. Pep has to win the league or CL every season to make par, I honestly think he will leave the next time neither of these things happen. More hope for this then any regulation taking care of their financial irregularities anyway.

    Didnt even watch it. Didnt see any point, figured it would be no celebration, not really a cup final, just a procession.

    Sounds like I was right. Saw 6-0, felt a bit sorry/embarrassed for Watford, then forgot about it completely.


    They arent a "big" club. They are a rich club, which is a totally different thing.

    I get the feeling that in CL circles they are the rowdy new kids, spoiled brats, and not "prestigious" or "classy" like the old guard.

    So perhaps they will serve as a good target for being made an example of

    Of all the football deals in all the world, what attracted Emirates Marketing Project’s Abu Dhabi owner and executives to go into business with their manager Pep Guardiola’s brother and agent?

    Probably for the same reason the Qataris found Platini's son to be the ideal person for a legal position in investment group that owns PSG. Talent runs in families.

    They have quite literally destroyed any hope of getting the PL trophy.

    Bayern Munich set to test Emirates Marketing Project with £70m bid for Leroy Sané
    Given Guardiola seems to have doubts about Sane, I would imagine he would jump at that chance. A better test of City would be to offer £30m.

    Did this analysis for another board to show the sheer money duping at City

    This is mad - 1.5 billion pounds on football. Will the country truly go against City? That is investment in the UK. That can drive an economy.

    That is one of the contradictions of FFP. The Sheikh and Abramovich have invested over 2 billion in English football. The money goes to pay footballers, managers and other football people (and agents) and the money is spread to other UEFA nations via transfers. This is bad and unfair.

    On the other hand the Glazers and Toxic Texans have taken over a billion out of football. Money that could have been spent of footballers, managers and other football people has been taken from the game. This is perfectly fair.

    And at least money some of the money from the players wages is spent in the UK. Where as the Taxans have taken the billion out of the uk.

    If he did it's brilliant. If he didn't it's brilliant.

    Can't believe it will be 10 years. I liked his comment that he can't see himself playing against them for another team.

    Nobody likes or expects a heavy defeat last game of the season in the North-East, but these things sometimes happen don't they ;)
