...and you know this how?

I searched ‘RAWK down’ on Twitter a couple of times yesterday and found more tweets about it from City (and one Arsenal) fan than I did us lot. Not an in depth study but nice to know we’re still popular.

I tried searching RAWK but that brings up some strange tweets I can tell you! Then I remembered there is actually a RAWK twitter.

That downforeveryoneorjustme.com is good for checking too.

try my twitter replies to see some shite

apparently ive implied their dirty oil cheats now.

best reply i got was their need to replace Clichy, Sagna, Zabaleta and Kolorov

the tweet in question quoted their age now even though they left 4 years ago

Miguel Delaney had an article yesterday about them having it easy this season and leaning towards money

i replied pretty much saying how money is no object at all to them stating how they can simply replace players with money being no object and not many clubs have that luxury

you should see the replies i got, apparently stating that means I'm a bitter, self entitled, arrogant crybaby who should get his coaching badges to replace Pep, am also a person that I find irritating according to some

Ahh, the great sports-washed of Manchester. The only reason Man City haven’t suffered this season is down to the state funds that have been pumped into the club as part of the Abu Dhabi sports washing project. They haven’t had many injuries, but it wouldn’t matter if they’d had as many as we have. Injuries don’t affect their squad because of the billions they have spent on players. Another of their favourites is’ every team has the same number of players in the squad’. What they don’t see is that Pep has spent hundreds of millions collecting a squad full of first team players, whereas the likes of us have to pad the squad out with cheaper players and youth players. City can rotate the squad as they have the same quality players as back up, also anyone getting injured is replaced with a player of similar quality. If they don’t have any, they just spend another couple hundred million in even more replacements.
They will win the Covid league this season, but it’s only because of the billions of pounds  of Abu Dhabi state funds.

All Pep is doing is the real life equivalent of playing football manager with the unlimited funds cheat code. I won every trophy going doing that.

pretty much what I said. Plus mentioned if players don't work for them it's no bother to replace them with more expensive players the next year.

Apparently them spending 100m.on Ake and Dias to replace otamendi and cover laporte is exactly the same as us buying Davies and kabak when van dijk was injured

Remember hearing how poor the German league was, the fact that we only beat rb leipzig 2-0 was seen as the bare minimum.

Remember how more German teams than English teams made it to the knockout stages? The German league isn’t poor, just not as rich as one or two others  ;)

Gladbach have the 5th best squad in the league though, so to even be in the competition was them punching above their weight, added to that they are going through a bit of a crisis at the moment. 

I don't read any of the post game nonsense, certainly not from insignificant fanbases like Abu Dhabi's, so whoever was pushing that it was considered easy to beat Leipzig, was basically making shit up to have a dig at Liverpool - something we are used to. It wastn’t actually a reflection on the team or league they play in.

Oh I know. It's just amusing that they beat a German side with less resources and lower in the league by the exact same score..

It's all stuff in isolation. Like how Allison was suddenly a clown after the Man City and Leicester games.

Its good Pep says it as im sure Klopp will remember it the next time that dick on BT pipes up.

Ole has said it too and all three are right in saying it especially this of all seasons when all games are on tv.

The big difference is, if Pep wants to rest players he just brings in some other Ł50 m+ player off the bench. It’s really not the same thing as other clubs having to deal with it.

Will go down as the most underwhelming league win ever. No atmosphere, no competition, the rest of the top 6 being shite.

It would have at least been entertaining if there was a title race. But it’s just the most expensive team of all time walking their way to a title in empty stadiums.

Definitely, they could do the parade around the empty streets of Manchester. Wouldn’t be too dissimilar to their last one really. To be honest, I hope they win every trophy that we don’t. Only when that happens every year will the authorities, clubs, rival fans etc really see what they are doing to the game.

Among the stuff sent to me on twitter was one saying we would probably have our banners on the kop saying yanks out etc

If I was arsed replying to that one I would have asked how that can happen when crowds aren't allowed at games and that given its the emptyhad they probably didn't notice the difference

id love to know why people think our title was tainted

if it wasnt for covid we might have sealed the title around st patricks day which is absolutely nuts

the league was over by mid january

last few games we dropped some points and still won it easy. if it was a formula 1 race it was like the leading driver winning by 4 laps


i wouldnt view their impending one this year as tainted, the league was close for ages but there was potential for a team to put a run together and blow everyone away, thought it would be us but injuries have ruined it

given theyve won about 18 matches running in  all competitions it would have been hard to keep up even with a full team

Our title wasn't tainted, and everyone knows that. It was won before Covid anyway. We could have declared at the restart and let all the other clubs play the season out and we'd still have won it.

The "tainted title" talk I referenced was by Abu Dhabi fans earlier in this season when we were top and they were yet to find their form. The talk from them back then was of this being a "meaningless covid title watched by no one." Of course, that narrative has changed now.   ::)
