He'd retire if he didn't win it and they are terrified of that.

Article on Sky sports about “Who tries to play like Liverpool?”

It then goes on to describe how we are top of a load of new stats from OPTA, with things like passing sequences, progress in possession, pressing opposition, absolute width, start sequence, high turnover.

So really, teams are as usual, playing catch up with us on most areas on the football pitch. But we aren’t Sky’s preferred flavour

This one really got to me, I want to smash something. They have the nerve to have a picture of Flopp leading all other managers as to notion they are all following that cunt. Pep has changed the entire planet when it comes to tactics and the way to play football, fuck its not right they can't own up to it. Every teams keeper is now passing out from the back and it wouldn't work if they wasn't trying to copy the Pep blueprint.

Sky Sports headline "Who tries to play like Liverpool?"

Article then shows 9 Opta stats where City totally dominate the high scores, "As the graphic below shows, Manchester City are excelling across almost all advanced metrics." City are only behind the bin dippers in two, which they explain "The reigning champions only lag behind for 'direct speed' and 'direct attacks', but this is due to their domination in possession."

So even though "Liverpool only trail City by the smallest of margins across a raft of these metrics", the headline is still "Who tries to play like Liverpool" instead of "Who tries to play like City"

I've never seen such biased bullshit...

Watching Premier League years 17/18 on Sky - fuck me, we're brilliant......despite the home derby. Jay Rodriguez player of the season, VK's celebration when WBA won at the old toilet to seal the title was THE best moment!!

The reason we have Silva is because of Bob.

From SS-

"I always try to go where they want me the most," he says. "Mancini was the most interested in me. He called me every month or every week from December to May or July. For that I made that decision. I think I made a good decision now if you look back."
