Just think how bad things will get if we have the "best footballing city" b******s if they finish 1st & 2nd.

If United finish 3rd will PP be going AWOL again?
Still at least they never bought 2nd place

I am taking the p**s Simon as Pontius Pilate (PP) when he was posting regularly always said that United never bought the title.

All clubs that go out and achieve a few years of constant success buy players to reach that goal. (also Blackburn without kicking on)
Success attracts the better players and the successful clubs pay more for the players they want.
This has been going on since Liverpool's domination in the late 70s and it now more apparent due to the size of the transfer fees.

Of course they bought it Owly.
If you were a player in that period and 'pool came knocking there was only one club to go to.
Difference is they still brought their own players through as well - that does not happen now.
You can just look at the group of lads who were being touted as Citys "golden generation" a few years ago.
Micah Richards etc - that soon went out the window once the money came in.

What was more of a surprise, us winning the first prem 'with kids' or City starting to dominate?

If I was a chairman of a club I know whose wages I would have liked to have been paying to win the league and it aint the city allstars.

Said before:
Liverpool won things when money didn't talk and turned unheard ofs into household names

Utd won things with the backbone of a solid team, with a surprising number of homegrown talents. Adding to each season with a major signing, starting at a time when money started to talk through to when bank balance/spending is more or less proportional to league position.

Chelsea got money all of a sudden and used it wisely, but manager turnover is concerning and they won't have any sustained success without stability, money or not.

City have bought nearly two possible teams that they could win the league with and have bought everything they have won-playing some great football though, mind you I would be worried if all that talent couldn't play the game.

Yes they sure can and good luck to em.

However, why they have started to 'play' in recent years is really what the crux of this one is.

Just a thought as we have spent millions developing the academy, will it still be a case of we have bought the titles when these kids come through and start winning things?

The kids coming through the academy last time were soon moved out when the money became available.
How many do you think will become regulars when City can continually attract and pay for World Class internationals?
