Having good players and spending big doesn't equate to success. It's about Philosophy, laying foundations.

The only slight I can put on Pep, he over spent on defenders to get it right. Apart from that, I wouldn't want to swap him with anyone,

Good old Durham. Just posted myself on the deluded Liverpool Echo site that they've had their 15 minutes of fame

Wow, talk about being bitter. Isn't that racist? How can they get away with this shit, does racism only apply to black people and all other races it's a free fall assault? Why is it ok for American owners to own, suck the life out of a club, riddle it with debt and no questions are asked? the old cliche they generatd their own money, my arse. A big chunk of premier League funds are generated from middle Eastern TV rights and yet no questions are asked when it fills their own coffers. Are we saying Yanks are morally sound? Really? Do we think Yanks are cut clean, never involved in illegal wars, illegal arm deals? I'm not saying AUDG are cut clean, but this high morale ground bollocks is all about demeaning a certain race because it doesn't fit their narrative.

P.s this is not intended to belittle fellow American blues

Wow Miguel, not bitter at all eh? Wasn't an issue when scouse were allowed to walk off with it last year or for the majority of the SLY years when the other red shite were weaving their dark arts and getting a bigger slice if the financial pie here and in europe whilst also getting the fall back of an extra European competition when they could not make the big boys league.
This sort of article just shows how bitter the yank backed cartel is and how they waste no time in slinging the mud once they know the game is up on the pitch.
Am expecting west ham to be targeted over the coming weeks as no chumps league for the scouse furlough kids has massive financial implications for them

We need to be very careful though - these brown oil people are coming to our country and making these football clubs competitive. How fuckin dare they! Do they not know that owners can only be rich white nonces?!

This reply sums up everything about this pathetic piece of shite so called journo.

'' Hi Miguel, it's interesting how this issue of "ownership" raises it's ugly head whenever City are in the ascendency - and yet it seemed much more palatable when they were mid-table in November.

Still City's owners are who they are.

So how about - Sultan Muhammad Abuljadayel - who owns 30% of the Independent and the reported "Saudi influence" of the paper.

At what point does ownership become relevant - is all of it relevant - is only some of relevant when it suits.

Are you being "press-washed" Miguel in your reporting?

Are your concerns legitimate regardless of where City are?

Or does City's ownership only really irk you when they sit on top of the table 10 points clear.

Is this honest, highly moralistic reporting, or is it disingenuous "oil-fuelled" writing stinking of hypocracy of the highest order?

I think we all know what's going on here don't we? ''
THEY SAY SWEARING IS DUE TO A LIMITED VOCABULARY. I KNOW THOUSANDS OF WORDS, BUT I STILL PREFER "FUCK OFF" TO "GO AWAY"

Its a fair argument. Except its 25 years too late. Some of us (Not Miguel) have been saying this since the G14 and bigger clubs stitched up the game and all but guaranteed their success. Too late Sir and why now?

Deranged Delaney provides a benchmark for the degraded state of modern sports journalism - utterly corrupt and wholly dishonest.

Reading the latest article on the BBC website about family man being bailed again and I noticed with incredulity not one single mention of "the former Man Utd player, etc". It is Wales this and Wales that. I find that incredible but not surprising.

This is such an important point to keep making - BBC Sport is a subsidiary of MUTV.

Genuinely would love us to sweep the fucking lot up the fall-out would be immense. Keep your treble, have that.
That is a truly shocking line that they have written though

Wonder if the rags ruined football in 1999

Thought not. Seem to recall the narrative was on the lines they have raised the bar and it's up to everyone else to raise their own games which in turn will be good for the game
