Manchester City thread


#1344

Sad but true


#1345

Come on now. He didn’t even do that in La Liga :wink:.


#1346

Haha PL title hasn’t been retained since 2006-2009.

City will do very well to retain it.


#1347

Premier league title also hasn’t been won by 19 points ever, this City team under Pep is another level.


#1348

Yeah, decline for them would be like 87 points which is still very titleworthy.

But every year people think they know what’s going to happen and they’re normally wrong. Like many thought Chelsea were nailed on second this year in August.

I mean he is probably 100% heading to Japan but still.


#1350

Would absolutely love that, although I still believe he’ll end up playing somewhere out of Europe.


#1351

I’d take Iniesta in a player manager role.


#1352

Won the league with a hundred points and feel smug. Iniesta walks through the door and you realise your nothing.


#1353

They seem to be close on Jorginho and Zaha. They are 2 players they really don’t need. It’s difficult to improve such a good team.


#1354

I think they will buy a CB, and if Aguero leaves, a striker but it’s hard to see how they won’t do the same next season, unless they become complacent.


#1355

People have been saying this for like 5 years, and then he consistently goes and proves he’s still one of the world’s top forwards :stuck_out_tongue:


#1356

That’s true, he has been the best striker in the PL for the last few seasons, but he has a few injury problems and Guardiola might be looking to get someone new in.
Saying that, they seem to score loads of goals if he plays or not, so he might just spend on his defence.


#1357

Laporte, Stones, Otamendi and Kompany. That’s enough, albeit some of them are crap/injury-prone.

#1359

Maybe pep got fed up with his cake requests?


#1360

What a melt.


#1361

It’s a bit hard to destroy a myth of a manager who has just got a hundred points and over a hundred goals in only his second season in the PL.

As for Toure saying: “It feels like he was jealous of me, he saw me as a rival… as if I was taking the limelight away from him’”
I think it might be the other way round.


#1362

Wouldn’t listen to a person that cries about not being wished happy birthday tbh.


#1363

I mean, Pep loved Keita and Abidal, along with Sane this past season, I think it’s a Pep and Yaya thing.
