So painful watching city play such great football. Say what you want about Guardiola, but he is head and shoulders above any manager in the world. This city side imo is the greatest ‘premier league’ side we have ever seen. Can’t see them getting beat this season. Scary to think de Bruyne has hardly played as well. I guess this is how city fans felt all those years we were winning titles for fun. Not saying we should wallow and accept mediocrity. But sometimes you have to accept that winning comes in cycles. We had unprecedented success that we thought would never end. We just have to suck it in at the moment. Until we don’t focus on ourselves and reshake our structure, manager and mentality, we will not close the gap between ourselves and city.

Some of us thought it would end a year earlier than it did. #20 was something of a bonus that masked the clubs problems.

Sorry park but I have to disagree about being the best ever. They look far better than they actually are because everybody dit’s off them and let's them play. Could you imagine Robson or Keane sitting off Silva and letting him play. Get into em and see if they like it. I know times have changed but you can still tackle.

Times have drastically changed the wonderful game. The day when football was a man's game for now a distant memory. The ladies teams tackle like men and get up and keep playing on where as the men roll round screaming like a bullet has hit them playing like girls.

How long before any tackle is banned and only interceptions are permitted to gain possesion. The day this happens footballers will be ex ballerina'$.

{Ed001's Note - that will never happen, as City are allowed to kick players without any kind of punishment. Just ask Delph, who right at the start of the game jump kicks the ball nearly taking Success's head off and then, when Success just powers through it, he then trips him. At the absolute minimum there should have been a yellow card given, but he didn't even get spoken to by the referee. And Fernandinho and Kompany could castrate someone with a rusty table knife and decapitate random children in the crowd without getting booked. So tackles will only be banned against City to allow them to play this 'great' football....}

One thing that gets overlooked at city is the quality of wing play. The amount of times mahrez and sane or sterling were one on one with their full backs in and around the box was remarkable. Its almost old fashioned, reminds me of previous united teams at their best.

Imagine if martial or rashford could get those same oppurtunites instead of having to carry the ball 50 yards just to reach the box.

Ed001, I watched with a city fan friend of mine and even he said he can't believe what Fernandinho gets away with every game. Fans see it, pundits have discussed it, and journalists write about it, so how come referees are oblivious to it?

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe they are oblivious to it, they are just under huge amounts of pressure and bottle it.}

Park, I love your posts but the greatesr Premier League team is a stretch. Good yes, best ever? Not by a long way.

Tony maybe the alcohol impaired my vision last night 😂 so the greatest perhaps is a stretch. But every time they play I don’t expect anything else but a a huge win for them. They expect it, the opposition do and their fans do. Perhaps it’s because the situation is so dire at the moment that city’s ability seems even better. But if they score 100+ Points, go unbeaten and score more and concede less than last year, I think it’s hard to disagree with their status as potentially the greatest. They would only be the greatest ‘premier league team’ though instead of the greatest English side, if that makes sense. To be the greatest English side, they would have to top the treble winning side. Not out of the realms of impossibility.

And do it for more than two seasons.

Some of the "tackles" and "blocks" Fernandinho has gotten away with over the past couple of seasons are pretty incredible.
Busquets was the same at Guardiola's Barcelona.
