    I'd rather watch this than some gritty 1-0, even if an upset would have been nice.

    If De Bruyne stays fit next season they will be even stronger than this season. Incredible player.
    Even Mahrez has bedded in.

    Getting the first ever domestic treble is an amazing achievement, especially considering they beat a team with 97 points into 2nd place for the league leg of that treble.

    In other leagues..... while it might be unlikely, AS Monaco could be relegated this evening.

    Guessing because the first one wasn’t originally given to Sterling.

    Makes you wonder what the point is really, they're absolutely superb and almost makes you glad that Saints didn't luck their way to the final to face that.

    The FA gave the first to Jesus. The VAR people said they're not sure about it. Officially, it's still down as Jesus' goal.

    Not sure why they don't seem to have goal line tech in the FA cup, yet they do have VAR.

    Countless teams have been ‘bad for football’ over the years by dominating, often by outspending their rivals. Nothing lasts forever.

    Man City did not win the FA Cup, they bought it. That’s what the Premier League has come and as a competition for 20 clubs it’s a waste of time.

    No different to Man Utd, Chelsea, Blackburn etc, just taken it to a new level. The Prem stopped being a competition for most clubs decades ago.

    Liverpool are also being bankrolled, regardless of what their fans say.

    If anything I actually like it. Seeing the rest of the top six b*tching about City is hilarious and hypocritical is roughly equal measures.

    "They bought the title!" scream fans of Utd, who spent £180m on two players.

    I’m loving it, City fans have been through the lower leagues and put up with being ****e for decades, watching them dominate the likes of Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool is **** funny.

    This is the problem for me. I don't expect Saints to be on a level playing field with Man Utd and the rest, but it would be nice if it wasn't so extreme. Chelsea don't really have much room to complain, because they were the first to take spending to extreme, and City have then outdone them. I also find there's a difference between Jack Walker or Steve Gibson putting money into the club of their local team and Abramovich or Sheikh Mansour investing in a team because, well why not?

    Still glad they beat Liverpool to the title though.

    That's a fair point, but at least once in the prem they didn't buy it.

    I was watching the final in a pub in Brum a table full of blokes were embarrassed by the loud mouthed Scouse **** moaning at City including this gem.
    “We didn’t want to win FA,League or Prem we just want to win the Champions League” um is that because you lost them all you numpty?

    I think he is referring to the Micky Adams era Leicester which used administration to clear the decks without punishment and immediately got promoted back. The points deduction rule was established after that.

    So technically they didn't cheat because the rules didn't exist.


    Anyway, these conversations are always the worst form of hypocritical humbug horsesh it. There us never any consideration that we have loads and loads more money than almost every other football club in Britain. More than Barnsley and S****horpe and Burton Albion and Shrewsbury and Swindon and Yeovil and Carlisle United and Huddersfield and Cardiff and Preston. That's not "cheating" or "buying success" that's fine because it's us.

    But any team that has more money than we do is a disgrace and buying the title and footballs ruined and waah waah wah waaaah wah wah waaaaaaah. Pearl-clutching holier than thou boll ocks.

    No, I'm talking about their use of dodgy sponsorship deals to breach the spending rules when they got promoted under the Thais.

    Usually when you are quite so dismissive, it helps to be less pithy and explain your thoughts a bit.

    Probably being underplayed by the media though with Man City doing it. Had it been Utd or Liverpool the Media W^nkfest would be in full swing for a week.
