Hats off to Liverpool for pushing City all the way. If not for them it might have been the most boring PL run-in in history.

More investment during the summer for both teams no doubt, and as a result its hard to see a third team challenging for the title next season.

indeed, Chelsea cant spend, Spurs probably wont, Arsenal are in the maybe camp, if they can find consistency in the system they want to run and make the right buys and United look dreadful (they might spend but it wont fix them unless its a complete clear out.)


Liverpool can grow more than City with a good summer but then again City did it this season missing there best player.

Spurs will spend and create extra money by moving on some of our struggling squad players so we will be there or there about but if we get injuries again we will fall of the cliff again.

Liverpool had almost the perfect season and still came up short and its hard to see how they can improve there team that much unless but maybe try to improve there squad depth if they can move on some expensive bench warmers.

Arsenal will have money if they get CL but without that they may be more focused on keeping there best players from been poached and there defence needs a big over haul.

Chelsea with there ban now set look like they will have to keep there old-guard and they have already given Luiz a 2 year deal even though they normally have a 1 year policy for over 30's but he had leverage.

United will be a fun watch,with how results have changed will the money men "trust" ole with the players he wants or will he find out what maybe derailed Moyes with the money men getting more involved in recruitment.

so glad that man city won it. i despise liverpool so much.

was watching the split screen with a liverpool mate. he ran around the house after brighton scored but a minute later was promptly stfu'd

liverpool fans can feel bad now. but tomorrow be proud. when you analyse liverpool's season it was incredible. only one league defeat and that was an even game away to the champions.

but big improvement money?
and thats with all the key men staying.


United just make mistake after mistake, they had 1 shot at getting a great manager but let it slip away by sticking with Van Gaal when Klopp was free.

now they gave Ole the job, his form tanked and not they can either look crazy and dump him (but only if they could make a play for Potch,) pretend with him for a year or back him and empty out the club at all costs. the third option is the only reasonable 1 to me, they need to get rid of those that arent good enough, invest in young talent and give him a couple of seasons.

but they seem to liken the short term at the moment and dont seem to have the sense to move on from Woodward (he makes them money but is awful at the football side of things.)

I almost edited my post after I posted, but to be fair to City the gap from 1st to 3rd was even bigger this time round. 26 points this year as opposed to 23 last season.

Compare ManU with Liverpool, a club previously mired in the same directionless muddle

Liverpool revival under US owners FSG:
Taken no money out, loaned in £110m to rebuild main stand, hired top coach with modern structure, recruited fine players.

Man United under US owners the Glazers: Taken £1bn out and more every year, put no money in, Old Trafford is becoming a shabby inferior stadium due to lack of investment, Continue to employ Woodward as he earns the money the Glazers funnel away.

yes Liverpool can look back and be proud but also look back and wonder if this was finally there chance to win the league again,at one point they had a 10 point advantage on City who had 1 game in hand but stull ended up needing help from others down the stretch.

City have now set a standard that you need 95+ points to finish ahead of them and can Liverpool get the breaks and the luck they had a times this season.

think there was money there this past season but we just couldn't get what Poch wanted but he is now saying he needs new players so he cant be to choosey and Levy has to act quickly rather than trying to drag every deal into a long drawn battle when other teams can just jump in.

the Glazers have been pretty much leaches on that club and were kept alive by probably the greatest ever manager, he left and it fell apart because they didnt back the next guy. then it was pretty much panic and now they need to be bold but clubs never seem to move on from players, they let them linger rather than make the tough cuts and take the short term pain.


they gave Jose a whole team and it was miles off the big prizes but when they didnt back him in the summer it was silly not to fire him then.



this United team does feel a lot like those 90s/00s Liverpool sides too.



they think the name and status will stay around forever but there will be a tipping point soon and the club will lose a lot of value because overseas fans are gained on success and play.

time will tell with City back to back titles is tough enough 3 on the trot is a real test, maybe things do fall away or maybe they get the hunger right.


i guess the thing is now they want the CL more than the Prem and maybe it has an impact.


Liverpool did get a fair bit of luck in games and with injuries but to win a title you tend to get a bit.

but it also seems one of your major issues is wages and not being able to pay certain players you have or want to add.


is Eriksen going to stay, even Kane who has the big deal could probably get more somewhere else.
