The mentality of City is quite something..."They forget they are tired"

Siege mentality that, and that's why along with playing great football they will this league easy.

 

Sounds like a hoary old cliche to me. When you have a bottomless pit of money and a huge squad which you can rotate if necessary and a top manager your going to win everything. The Premier League is an average and overrated league as summed up by the league table where Everton in 9th could be dragged into a relegation battle.

There will always be Real Madrid and Barcelona who would want to lure those players into their squads. City's history is nothing compared to those two, and I predict both to bid for players like De Bruyne, Sane and Jesus in the future.

So contrary to your analysis, I think the longevity of this City team is questionable and far from being certain.

Nah they won't be able to just sign player from city. This city team is super rich like PSG. This season Barca an Real did not spend too much. Yes Barca spend a ton but the majority of them came from Neymar

Real are going to spend plenty this Summer.

I think they will but I'll be surprised if they can poached city star unless the number is just ridiculous

I'm sure they could sign someone like Aguero fairly easy. De Bruyne is probably the only City player that would be almost impossible to sign right now.

Even if they'd agree some sort of fee, I doubt any player would want to leave City at the minute, especially if Pep signs a new deal

Might be the case for some but very few reject Barca/Madrid. City winning the CL would be the only thing to change that right now.

Although both are capable of spending, my point of focus was using their status and history to attract players. 

Man City and PSG can be super rich but they don't have the history advantage.

I never listen to football phone ins as the people who ring up are monumental arseholes. Just happened to turn on the radio and some Spurs fan says they can win the champions league my point proven I feel. Just hope Real Madrid come in for Poch in the Summer and they start sliding down the league. Also is there a more slimy footballer than Delli Ali and Harry Kane sounds so thick he'd have to study for six months to make it to the level of vegetable.

Top 4 officially settled now.

City are champions, United/Liverpool/Spurs to battle out the next 3 spots, us & Arsenal pray for europa league spot.

If we Chelsea finish 5th. Just play Chelsea u23's and Ethan Ampadu plays every game in the Europa League, Put some senior first team players who don't play regularly in the premier league.

Europa League will probably be our best hope to get back into UCL though.

Can't see us challenging the current top4 anytime soon with Hazard, Courtois, Azpi & others leaving.

Thats it I don't think it'll be like last time. Especially with other teams strong at this stage and only likely to strengthen in summer. We had enough trouble getting players with champions league so who knows how it'll go.
