City are well set to win it unless Mark Hughes plays spoilsport .Ya they have spent a whole lot of money and its probably not the ethical way to win league titles but that does not change the fact that they have won it .

What pisses me the most regarding this discussion is why no one cried when Real were doing that in the Galactico Era and while Roman Abrahimovic is still spending the cash .Money buys success and City have done that .

The record books wont show City buying the title it will show City winning the league by the 2 wins over their closest rivals (If they do win it :P )

EPL is just business now,money is a part of it. Accept it and move on. :\

This

 

If you want to challenge for the title, you have to spend monies.

This but properly and not on overrated English players :P

Funnies part is city is still leading only by GD. :lol:

 

Mancini is one crap manager,he should go if city has to reach somewhere.

 

This.

 

this is the reason why i want him to remain their manager next season as well.

First of all, yes we have made big money signings in past 25 years. But how many of them?? Veron, Rooney, Rio. If any other then please tell me but never at any time have we bought an entire squad like City have and that too at such ridiculous prices.

 

second of all, why shouldn't we include the Class of 92 in there?? They've been responsible for most of the success in Fergie's time.

 

 

 

I am just saying youth is a moot point here cause we are arguing that City's money spending is not wrong. United have done the same in past its just well spread out cause back then there was nothing to challange them in the $$$ department.

 

Finally, you should be the last person to say all this when everyone here knows that you hate United more than you love Chelsea.

 

What ever gave you that idea :huh: ? I dont hate united, i dont hate any team, i love some united players like vidic, rooney and giggs. I also hate some united players like Rio and nani not least for their looks :P. I am just rooting for city to win the title cause i want someone else win it except your red army.

Well atlest there is a difference between City and us. We were a decent top half team, regularly in 3-6th region before papa russian came, city were just leapfrogged above everyone else after the arabs. Also the whole media is bias for the beautiful continental game, Barca spends like crazy (zlatan deal anyone ?) but they can mask it by their la msia products. Its really perplexing that why Real Madrid goes unscathed.

Buying 10 Bentley over the course of 15 years is different than buying 5 bentley's in one year.

to all who look down upon EPL.

EPL, best league ever ! :majesty:

 

 

Bundesliga - where any can beat any one with better scoreline

 

la liga 06-07 - difference between top 12 [ie 1 and 12th] teams was 10 points for most of the season

 

Stupid facts i know just like the one you have posted.

 

 

Credits where its due but epl has been the best league in the last 5 years which i wont argue with, but i hope this will change

Apparently Arsenal have signed Yann M'villa!! I am excited if that turns out to be true!!

 

 

:exoticdance: Even i heard about some rumours that a new signing will be revealed few days after WBA game. Hope this is the one :bigyellowgrin:

 

@YouAreMyArsenal We have been told that #Arsenal have secured the deal for Yann MVilla is not contingent on CL play. Contract believe to be around £60-70k a week, 4 year deal, with a fee being batted around of £16-18mil. Would be a record signing.

yea, judge a players worth by one game. :doh:

 

by ur logic, drogba is a failure just because of that silly rush of blood moment in 07-08 final.

 

edit : posted from mobile and back on PC now and noticed that there is another bold part where you mentioned Carrick to be inconsistent regularly. no point discussing with someone that doesnt watch United matches regularly.

 

I would ve agreed tht carrick is top class only if i had not been watching manutd play :P carrick has been inconsistent every season and failed to perform in big matches.

 

Also, if he is a top class player then y doesnt he start regularly for england? Why there are talks of manutd signing sneijder/tiote?

Don't like united winning it either :bigyellowgrin:

In an ideal world I would have preferred Everton winning it over any of these 2 :P but out of the 2 I would prefer the title in Uniteds hands rather than City .

Carrick is very consistent and very reliable as a quality midfielder .But if you press him then he gets lost,Ive seen teams do that a lot to Carrick and he just does not know what to do .He has been massively helped by Scholes return.I would say he is top quality especially because of his passing range and his composure on the ball .I think he would Benefit playing alongside a quality midfielder
