Ah ha, I remember having the same convosation with a friend who is a Chelsea supporter when they bought success in the Premier League.

What was it that Manchester City spent 150 million in the summer? As nice as it is to watch there is a 'cheat' element to it. I mean if a lower team has two or three good players and they are knocking on the door for the top 6 or 7 they get torn apart by the larger clubs Aston Villa being an example.

Anyways at least there will be some rotation at the top. Not really a fan of City for taking the FA Cup but I tend to avoid those clubs.

On a lighter note there wasn't one bad game of football today. The Everton Fulham game was fantastic.

Poor show to be honest, and i'm sure that Sir Alex himself would even be ashamed of them.

Happens up and down the country unfortunately. One of the main reasons I'll opt for tickets to away games than go to Old Trafford these days. You can rightly put down the home support, especially yesterday when it was only beaten in the pathetic department by the activities on the pitch, but the United away following is second to none.

I will concede that the Utd away following do make a right racket. Very cheeky bunch as well! : ) I've encountered them first hand on numerous occasions from the other side of the divide at the Hawthorns. They know how to rub it in alright.

:wink:

Our time will come though. One day.

Well United as they will, will bounce back next time out, but a little diminished, now they know that they DO have a threat. City are now playing AS A TEAM.

I do hate Manchester United, but not for buying titles, I hate them for these 4 reasons:

Their "look at us we are the best" mentality.

The way officials are blatantly biased to them (fergie time).

Their glory supporting knobhead fans.*

Their manager.

*Not saying all ManUre fans are glory supporting knobs, just most of them.

Also, Sheff Wednesday, Millwall and Leeds have better away fans than you.

I take it as a compliment that the highlight of a lot of football supporters' season isn't their team winning a trophy or even a game, but United losing.

Meh, our seasons been pretty bad so far. 16th after 14 games for a team that was in the championship last season is a joke. Knill out.

I still firmly believe united will win the league this season, they have the experience as a side and are traditionally better after xmas....i just feel the Tevez factor, African Nations and possibly Balotelli having a strop will effect Man City and Chelsea to much.....Have to say though, what a squad City have now though. If they dont make the Champions League semi's i will be suprised.

In the world, only two teams have a better squad, Barca and the Spain national team!

Mancini is a good manager, but give me all the money in the world and I'd have a team much better than his, that would have cost less and won more.

If I had been appointed when Mark Hughes was, I would have built a team that would have already re wrote history. If I had got the job when Mancini did I would have a team that's in the process of re writing history.

There we are.

He really isn't that good, I mean it has taken him this long to put a world beating team together and he has spent how much?

So no I don't think he is 'good' at all. If you have the funds anyone can buy the league.

This is what it will be like for the next umpteen years.

Mancini is a good manager, his record at Inter proves that. I just think he's not the best at spending big money, although I doubt there's a manager alive who's as bad at spending money than Kenny Dalglish. As good a manager he was in the 80's and 90's, he spent over the odds for crap players. (excluding Suarez, who is IMO one of the best strikers in't league) this season and that's why Liverpool will finish 6th this season.

You can't critise RM for his man management skills or tactics, but he lacks transfer accum, although even he wouldn't buy Torres for £50 million. :P

Harry Redknapp is the sort of manager I'd have appointed, someone who can buy a crap left back and turn him into one of the worlds best wingers. Although as much as I like Harry, he's not my choice for next England manager. My choice took a small town team into the championship, and after getting relegated bounced back up and stayed in the league, then took a team from the bottom of League 1 to 3 points clear at the top of the championship.

Darren Bent going back to Sunderland today, expect misses, fouls and booing. [s:2pi9ekwr]Apparently[/s:2pi9ekwr] He left for more money.

I enjoyed Chelsea getting beat by Arsenal, and I think after seeing them (arsenal) today they can still mount a serious title challange. Also glad we got our 3rd win today with a convincing 4-2 victory over Tranmere.

UTI.
