As long as we're not winning it City can win it every season, the alternative is scumbag clubs like Pool, Chavski, Spuds or United.
"the enemy of my enemy is my friend".
I'd prefer Everton, Wolves or someone else to win it just to make it more interesting but that is very unlikely despite all the Sky bs about how exciting the PL is, sure Leicester won it once but take that season out and it's been more or less a monopoly of the richest clubs for the last 15 years - City, Chelsea and United.
At least City aren't in London and aren't United!.
Fair enough. I can definitely agree with that sentiment. I suppose I would have respected it a bit more if City's dominance was a bit more "organic" with say a couple of seasons of heavy investment and then building success from there instead of this bullshit. They've spent over £200 million the past couple of summers just on fucking fullbacks. Only a couple of days they've just broken the record sum spent on a full back getting Cancelo for a deal worth £60 million.
Why should they go the 'organic' way when all of top 5 clubs in the world spend millions every transfer window. It is at a state where competition involves 20% on youth and 80% on spending money + manager. They got plenty, so they are free to spend them at their will, why are people (not you, in general) hating them for winning due to financial backing. Pep plays a big part in all this too and let's not kid ourselves and think any team can win the league with a budget and no tactical manager. The league and football have turned around money a bit more due to economics and inflation so clubs that adjust to it, win and those who take more time.. they lose out.
We went the 'organic' way and look at us competing with Wolves for an EL spot. Kudos for them for having £ and a great manager. We have one of our one but £ was (until this window) a problem. They dwelled on Cancelo (which is worth 25m by the way, not 60) for about half a week. We were all over the place to try and negotiate with Celtic over 25m.
I do apologise but I don't entertain the idea of silly envious fans with '1bn net spend in 10 years of course they will win' statements. So it's their fault their owners and COO are forward minded people with an actual ambition
to drive the club forward and compete with the top teams and win silver. Acting like they wouldn't be over the moon if Stan pledged 1bn over the next 10 years for Arsenal.
