    I actually posted about the possibility on af when the club changed hands, hal.

    Since then we've basically had to reconcile ourselves to the fact that the whole league and indeed the elite football world reeks though, haven't we.

    Der Spiegel, and the better elements of the German press, have done a great job of exposing corruption and largesse recently:

    Manchester City Exposed Chapter 4: A Global Empire - SPIEGEL ONLINE

    I would have thought the more astute members of the forum would have gone with this despite your bitterness:

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/...abi-investment

    Chitty, no, but for someone with a bit of intelligence like yourself...
    Good articles, but only telling us what we already know.

    At the end of the day, Manchester Dhabi are just a small club with a deep-pocketed owner.

    ^ ^^^

    You wonder where the game will be in 20 years time. Especially, given this recent nonsense about the elite European clubs setting up their own league in the search for even more money.

    What a load of bollox.

    Blah blah blah, your teams spent a few million more than our team.
    Did you nick that from the Mouriniho book of excuses?

    Just read this:

    1. The point was about how you've been fiddling the books, not cash spent.

    2. Even if it was about cash spent, the money you've spent has been more than anyone else, so you're wrong on that score too.

    We've always said it in Manchester, but you City fans are a few butties short of a picnic.

    A win in their final game will see them qualified by a margin of 8 points with 4 wins out of 6.

    How come you spend so much time reading my posts but none at all watching the team you profess to 'support' on tv, then?

    It's not as if you have to get up to go to work at any point.

    All you ever know about them is their results.

    OK, so by that measure alone they've 'succeeded' in the CL so far.

    You're as 'close' to Man U as I am to fookin Perth Glory.

    They scraped another lucky win in added time.
    The frustration and tension was clear for all to see, from their armchairs as the special one battered a rack of water bottles

    Nice to see both Manchester teams through to the last 16 and hopefully Liverpool tonight.

    Ups the profile of the premier league, cementing it's status as the best league in the world!

    Not quite the heady times of the mid/late-Nawties, when there were 6 finals spots in 5 seasons going to PL teams. Going off memory.


    United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Cit.... oh.... no, just the first 4.

    How are you guys watching it now it's all on BTSport? Reddit highlights are massive and don't seem to DL and torrents are hard to find.
