I'll definitely be routing for Real Madrid because I want us to send them c*nts flying out of the competition ourselves.

To be honest I'd rather avoid RM. City are twats but I don't think they'd go out to intentionally injure anyone. I genuinely believe Ramos is someone who would go into a challenge fully intending on causing a serious injury.

Not saying I don't think we'd beat Real, I think we would. But they'll offer a level of shithousery I can't see with any of the other clubs left in it. There's a couple of other pricks in that RM team as well and I could definitely see one of the forward boys going off on a stretcher if we play them.

Bluemoon has gone even crazier down a rabjithole
FSG being called corrupt is the gist of it.

I read that forum for a laugh but I can't actually imagine living your life being that, well, dishonest with yourself. Online banter is one thing but if we do win the title I'll be worried about some of these people.

I have no love for Real Madrid, but seeing City knocked out early again would just be so funny. I want Villa and Forest fans, let alone Liverpool or Man U fans, to taunt them mercilessly about their lack of European Cup, in perpetuity.

Good god...


There’s a couple of good points being made here. I’d never thought that this hacking might be the original source of the leaked emails. Get into someone’s account have a good look around - see something very interesting and knowing it is there - employ someone to hack it - knowing what you are looking for and where it is. All reports suggest that these Liverpool employees hacked into the system repeatedly- that suggests that they were obtaining and using info - why else would you go in repeatedly? As a minimum they’ve been copying our scouting reports more likely they were looking at a wide range of club information - some of it very sensitive.

The other point is the moral one. Just because you know someone’s log in - doesn’t mean you use it. You might know where Grandma keeps her cash in a tin but as her Grandson you don’t steal it. However crap City’s security is does NOT excuse these actions. Equally Liverpool know that 2 of their employees have broken the law, acted wholly unprofessionally and been caught in the act and rather than deal with it - the “holier than though’s “ have rewarded an act of gross misconduct with promotion! . This whole incident and the way it’s been dealt with beggars belief but then again a Liverpool goalkeeper match fixed and no action was taken, their fans murdered 39 people and English football was held collectively to account. On balance this is a huge issue that should see Liverpool kicked out of the Premier League for moral bankruptcy but we all know the FA and PL are gutless and will spin the facts and give Liverpool a slap in the wrists citing inconclusive evidence etc. Call me a cynic but justice will not be served.

Real should definitely knock them out.  Amazing to think that its nearly 10 years since the Sheikh turned up yet their record in Europe is rubbish. Long may it continue.

Kicked out of the PL? Christ! ;D

Why does everyone keep calling it hacking by the way? Perhaps I'm mistaken but I was under the impression that we hired a couple of scouts from City who then chanced their luck and found that their login credentials for City's scouting system still worked. Immoral? Yes. Hacking? Not at all. It's their own fault for being too thick to remove ex employees from their systems.

I think the poster is calling it "hacking" to try to tie together the scouting database access to the FFP-related stuff Der Spiegel got their hands on.
The logic seems to be that if Liverpool "hacked" their system by accessing a scouting database Man City hadn't revoked access to, then they of course also had access to the email of all the top Executives.

They are utterly convinced at BlueLoon that we signed Coutinho based on him being on their database that was "hacked".

City at the time that had no form in signing younger players struggling in Europe at the time, so I seriously doubt Coutinho was in their sights, but because we made massive profit on Coutinho and spent that money magnificently, they figure our current resurgence is by nefarious means. :D

Nothing will happen, it was settled by the clubs and now City through their media chums leaked this story because we are the benchmark now in England and Europe.

If Coutinho was so great according to their database, makes you wonder why they let us sign him for £8.5m.
I guess they figured they didn't need him after they'd signed... erm, Scott Sinclair and Jack Rodwell?

There is plenty of evidence out there that he does just that. Ramos tried the judo move in the 2017 final, luckily Dani Alves managed to get free before he could damage him. Look on you tube, he has spent his career trying to break Messi's legs. Utter shithouse

Well if they would use Windows Vista...

I like the imputation that having evidence of widespread rule-breaking on their computers isn't an issue; but Liverpool discovering it and passing it to the authorities (which never happened, of course, but bear with me) is outrageous and despicable.

Stu Brennan at it again!
Literally next to no one outside Man City thinks their spending is anything other than tainted. That journo wants to drag the conversation in a purely financial direction, because then you can muddy the waters by just looking at the pure numbers. The reason City will never get the same credit that Liverpool are currently getting is because LFC are being operated by businessmen who are making smart investment decisions with a view to building a sports brand. You can criticise them for not being local or connected to the club, but their motivations are the same as the vast majority of other club owners. Even Chelsea can at least say their spending was done by a businessman with an interest in football, even if the source of the money was dirty.

City, in contrast, are a propaganda tool, a sportwashing exercise (deflecting unwanted attention by hosting or organising sporting events) by a tyrannical regime with a dubious human rights record. FSG can be criticised for many things, but torturing and killing their rivals tends not to be one of them. It's not just that the money is coming from dubious sources, in huge quantities that could and should be used in the country of origin for the good of it's people (remember, the owners are an actual state, not a company, effectively they are using the public purse for this). But its also the purpose the money is being used for; to create a more acceptable political image and deflect international attention away from domestic abuses.

Liverpool are not following the city model of success. No team in the premiership are following the city model of success. How could they, unless they were to become the willing puppets of some dictator and happily accept whatever money was coming their way to help prop up that regime? I would question whether it can even be considered a model of success. Arguably each and every victory Man City enjoy comes at a cost; to the integrity of their fans, their club, and those in the media who ignore and fail to condemn these activities. I suspect history will not be kind to City, complicit in a morally suspect wrongdoing for the cheap thrill of a trophy lift and one-upmanship on their rivals. Its interesting to me that United fans care not a jot how City are getting on and still worry about Liverpool. The ones I know have completely discounted City's success. It's also interesting that City have not captured the imagination of the public in the same way as United, Arsenal and Liverpool have done in the past. It says to me that at grass roots level, among supporters, there remains a healthy scepticism of city's succes, borne of a instinctive sense of what's right and what's wrong. It's just a pity the media are so shamelessly happy to ignore the morality of the situation and cheer on 'British' success.

As a final point I also think that the behaviour of city as a club has gone some way to repairing relations amongst United and Liverpool fans. No matter how much United may have courted Mammon in the past, they never stooped so low as to welcome actual dictators into their club and then helped them hide their unsavoury past from the world's attention. Compared to that it's hard maintain anxiety over United.

The way they are blowing this out of proportion is hilarious. They seem to be convincing themselves that our scouts looking at their info (which they already knew most of, as they probably created much of the data) 7/8 years ago, is responsible for all our transfer dealings and success on the pitch. Their state of denial about their own club and their toy throwing over everything else is pathetic. Bunch of crackpots they are.

Bottom line is that if Abu Dhabi FC were top by 14 points they wouldn't be crying over shit like this. They are where they are because Pep mismanaged a quality squad,  pushed it beyond its limits, and overpaid for poor defensive cover.

Stu Brennan at it again!

Jesus, he's unbelievable.

Quote
Carragher’s claim also conveniently overlooks the fact that Salah, Mane and Wijnaldum cost around £93million combined, way beyond the reach of all but a handful of English clubs.

It's easier to say which Premier League clubs couldn't spend £93 million over two seasons than those that could. Even Bournemouth and Watford are shelling out fees for players similar to what we spent on those three!

Quote
Liverpool splashing out £75million for Virgil Van Dijk was excellent business, a move that City might now regret not making when they had the chance.

Might regret?? City wanted Van Dijk and would have happily paid that amount but Virgil wanted absolutely nothing to do with them.

Quote
Full credit to Klopp – he and his staff have honed Van Dijk, Mane, Salah, Wijnaldum and the rest, improving them individually and shaping them into a magnificent, well-rounded squad.

But Pep Guardiola has done the same with City.

Difference is, Klopp has done it with pretty much every signing, whereas Guardiola has had a shit load of failures.

Quote
Stop pretending one has done it within the bounds of the Corinthian spirit, and the other has simply thrown money at it.

Just look at the net spends FFS. We had to sell Coutinho to fund most of our business, whilst they can shell out on full back after full back until one sticks.

Gaslighting is the new city slogan. Like trump supporters, the Manchester City fans are blind to how they are being used and manipulated. Simply because no amount of evidence or facts can convince idiots of anything (Mark Twain). But some emotives and made up hard luck stories go unchallenged because it matches the kind of things they read in the s*n or the ma*l. It is an unfortunate truth that there are a great many poorly educted people who will beleive anything. Especially if it matches their own narrow bigoted agenda. Stupid people are easier to control, which is why gov like to keep its people dumb. Abu Dhabi know this and have transposed this to the fans of the club they bought successfully. Like zombies, they ape the bullshit fed to them. Social media has made it all the easier to whip up a lynch mob for anything tenuoius and abstract. When you have a fanbase made up of idiots, you have a ready made army of zealots who will do whatever bidding you can make up.

Airbrushes the signing of Aguero, their best and arguably most important player of the last 10 years, somewhat. He was hardly a rough diamond they’d just unearthed, now was he?  He was highly sought after I seem to remember.

...and he’s comparing Champions League regulars like Valencia and Monaco to the likes of Hull and Newcastle   :o

Bit of a difference between signing players from relegated sides and helping them become amongst the best in their position and buying a promising/established player from a team that finished third in their Champions League group.

Just because hacks like this fella have never heard of someone because they play in one of them funny foreign leagues, it doesn’t mean that they were shite and needed to be trained properly.  ::)

They really are a sad bunch aren't they?

They talk about the "Cartel" as Us, the red Mancs, Barca, Madrid, the Milans, Bayern etc. 

Those clubs that were giants of their own leagues, across Europe and the World but not wanting any upstarts joining the gravy train or upsetting the status quo.  Those clubs that ringfenced all the finances, had the wealthiest owners and priced everyone else out of competing for the biggest prizes. 

The Cartel now is them and maybe PSG.  So wealthy they can't be legislated against.  So wealthy nobody can compete with the fees and wages on offer.  So wealthy the authorities have to turn a blind eye to their financial cheating.  So wealthy they don't need UEFA competitions.

Yet here we are, 10yrs into their campaign to oust everyone who stands in their way and they still can't dominate their own league. 

Despite all that brainwashing, all that financial muscle, all those world class players, all the stamping of feet, protests and whinging about the FA, the PL, UEFA, the Referees, they're still nobodies.

Desperate for recognition, desperate for rivals, desperate for acclaim, desperate to be part of the Cartel that they spent so long ridiculing.

Let them wallow in their own cesspit of shite, we'll carry on being one of the original Cartel Giants  ;D

Man City fans: Scouts we previously employed logged into our system to check their email because the club forgot to close their accounts. 17 points reduction!

Everyone else: Your club persistently exceeded FFP regulations, lied about it and tried to cover it up, then denied the vailidity of the source that revealed the truth because it was inconvenient, all in an attempt to engage in a sportswashing exercise on behalf of a dictatorial regime associated with torture, killings and abuse of human rights.

Man City fans: .... at least 17 points, possibly relegation *puts on 'all or nothing' to watch Pep dance once more*
Beatings will continue until morale improves...

The lack of self awareness with this bunch of twats is unreal. The only team actually cheating is theirs, yet they're pointing fingers at everyone else. Classic deflection tactics but the amount of anger towards us on their forum full of basket cases makes me think they genuinely believe the bullshit they're coming up with!

One of their mental patients has just said the FA Cup is harder to win than the Champion's League.

I think that's the final straw for them, they've completely lost it because of us having 2 great seasons.

The Blueloon podcast seems to call their football style "a live Picasso painting"

Picasso, the artist famous for abstract and surrealist styles. You don't want your footie to be that!

and being as Guardiola basically wants 11 robots playing football, about as far away from a discription as you could find!
