Who are they supposedly looking to sign this summer?
Everyone and anyone. I don't even see where they can improve tbh, they'll just buy players so other teams can't.
I reckon Fergie should go around and show interest in some Liverpool players like Downing and Adam. That way City might buy them.
exactly. Long term they can´t catch us. Because of our past and our History we´re named among the best clubs in Europe (if not worldwide), outside England people will still see them as our little neighbour. One PL Title does not change that.
But as long as their owners dont change I can see them dominating the league. And buying sucess in CL, too. They have the financial power, we dont.
I watched "Hold The Back Page" on Sky Sports last night and all of the journos were predicting that City would go on to dominate for years now. It's an easy prediction to make when they have just won the title.
Unfortunately, I expect to hear more of the same all summer. Hopefully, that'll just make it all the sweeter when United bounce back next season.
Summer and throughout the season, I'm completely sick of the phrase "power shift" already - and that was THIS season. The ABU's are dancing in the streets. Of course they fail to realise, far from City hammering us to submission - we pretty much killed ourselves last season.
Mind you, right now they have the trophy - but all that does is paint a huge bullseye on their chests. It's one thing being the hunter - but being the hunted is something else entirely.
they had the same points as us only won the league cause we threw it away to them, power shift my arse. if fergie had 400million to spend, by feck he would not win the league on only goals scored, wankers. let them have there day as next year hell rub it up them when we fecking hammer them and leave them in there place.
Two buses of class players and still thrilling until the last second shit on them and their shity coach.
Maybe we didn't deserve the title but for sure with all this many spent they didn't show enough to convinced me that their fecking project will last long enough.
As many of you mentioned here we've already heard that before
I actually see City being more of a threat to those teams for signatures. Silva and Aguero are more than happy to play in Manchester for all those zeros on their checks.
The title will return to old Trafford next season, I'm sure. I hope so anyway, can't stand the mercenary cunts.
When they have a full room like this then I just might take the thread title seriously.
Well said sir, i love it when we are written off. Makes the success so much sweeter!!!
Bang on there Sal - thread should have been extinguished like them blue rats will be come next season!
We have a younger team built for the future with a fantastic history and team bond. City have Tevez and Balotelli. The title was dramatic, the break up will be spectacular.
I hear Balotelli's staying, so I doubt they'll make it another season without self destructing. (;
Beautiful, isn't it?
I reckon Aguero is using City as a stepping stone for Madrid.
They don't have what it takes, not with Mancini as a manager. IMO he is incompetent, which he proved further by eyeing another "big-spending summer". So he finally wins the league with "Macho city" and gets a bit of chemistry and no doubt team togetherness...that's the time to consolidate, fill one or two positions with back-ups if necessary(arguable in their case). What does the mastermind Mancini decide to do? Bring in more overpaid Ego's! What a manager, but I'm glad that's his approach, the blue moon will be eclipsed all the sooner.
Besides if Financial fair play truly kicks in, they will be back to the bottom in no time. And seeing Abramovich taking FFP seriously (yeah he bought Torres, but watch his dealings this summer) fills me with hope for its effectivness..
Their sugardaddy has apparently said now they have "a championship winning side" the spending will not be anywhere near as much. Hazard will probably be it for them, maybe a couple of tweaks here and there.
Sounds to me very much like the Sheikh isn't prepared to throw money about now they've won something.
