Just watched them take West Ham apart but how woeful were the not so happy Hammers? Shouldn't detract though from the quality of some of the finishing.

Shirley Big Sam has to answer for their last two cup performances?

Citeh go marching on with only their suspect away form keeping even the best of the rest in the frame, biggest prob for me is that the only English in their squad are Hart, Milner and Lescott and none of them are guaranteed a start.

Chelski are next in line imho but their English are in the main on their last legs, the EPL is making a rod for Woy's back.

Man city are a joy to watch but they are weak in defence and with Kompany being injury prone its their one big weakness. That and Hart not being all that.

Citeh will dominate everything for years and NOBODY will be able to touch them because nobody will be able to match their funding streams.

What's funny is watching the dismay start to show as it starts to sink in at their neighbour's that the very same football model that has benefited them so much will soon see them cast as perpetual also-rans. So far Moyes is copping it, and even SAF's legacy is being questioned, when all along it's the Glazer's leveraged buy-out that has drained a cool $1bn, minimum, out of their coffers which is the problem. Eventually the penny will drop and I can't wait to hear the excuses that emerge when it does.

If you thought that Jack Walker's Blackburn or Abramovich's Chelsea were "cheating" in some way by being bankrolled by a business plan that could never be balanced then you ain't seen nothing yet.

Citeh have barely, as yet, begun.

They cant bankroll year on year success due to the fairplay rules. However they tend to buy and sell so i guess it their way of getting around that.

Football's Financial Fair Play rulebook will have a coach and horses driven through it by Citeh and it'll barely whimper because it'll be too busy counting the cash they plough in as they do so.

Everything that "football" says and does to object will, even if genuinely intended, only be lip service as it prostrates itself and kow tows to the mightiest God of them all: cash. That battle is long since lost.

UEFA are pretty strict with the FFP just look at Malaga banned from Europe for this eason and i think next not sure on that. Clubs have to make the money within the threshold to justify the spending its a measure to try and prevent clubs from going into admin or bust.

The FFP rulings will be interesting. City are spending 10's millions on their Academy infrastructure as well as foreign investment such as New York City to offset.

PSG should be first ones banned from Europe but can't see Platini doing that.

Will be funny to watch all the middle aged Manu plastics with kids in City shirts

If it comes to pass in a few years that City are winning the Premier League by 10-15 points year on year, then the FFP rulings will be tweaked and implemented stringently. The Premier League won't want its competition turned in to a procession. Even during Uniteds dominant period, Arsenal and Chelsea have managed to grab a few Prem titles between them.

I can see City walking it for a few years though before anything is seriously significantly changed.

Malaga were stitched up by UEFA's FFP rules because they were an easy target. Would the same have happened to Barca or Real? Of course not but nobody much cares about li'l ol' Malaga so the full might of the "law" fell upon them.

Malaga were also stitched up by a sudden surge of Arab money which suddenly stopped leaving them high and dry with commitments due that they had no hope of meeting. What UEFA did was tantamount to kicking a man when he is down.

Neither of these things is likely to happen to Citeh.

While we're considering Malaga just how iffy was their Champs league semi-final defeat to Dortmund? Surely it'll one day come to pass that that game was bent. If you watch the last 5 minutes it's hard to come to any other conclusion.

But it's only li'l ol' Malaga. Poor ol' totally skint Malaga. What are they going to able to do about it?

Well they gave a poor Blackburn a thumping without some of their Marquis players, got a text from the ground bemoaning the lack of their 100th goal of the season, miserable feckers.

Those Arsenal titles were minor miracles, in hindsight.

Looking at that team last night it's frightening the strength in depth that City have. I reckon a full 2nd 11 from their squad could have a good crack at finishing top 4 in the Prem.

I'd be mildly miffed if I were a genuine Arsenal/Chelsea/Liverpool fan. Uniteds era of dominance comes to an end, and then the blue half of Manchester looks like it will steam-roller this league for the foreseeable future, or until the Arabs get bored.

I'd kind of agree were it not the case that we are well past half way in the season and Arsenal are top with Chelsea just a point behind Citeh, they haven't cracked it yet, for every beasting they hand out there is a scratchy draw or even a defeat at the Villa or Cardiff while the Chelsk and the Arse will continue to batter the also rans as well.

Citeh still have to go to Spurs, United, Arse, Poo and Everton, of course they might batter them all feckless.
