    I’d like to be the first to congratulate Manchester City on winning this seasons (2023-24) Premier League title.

    After finishing as champions in five of the last six seasons and six times in the last ten seasons – it was so predictable!

    [Runners up twice during those ten years to boot]

    Six League Cup triumphs during the same period.

    We may as well congratulate them on winning that trophy again too.

    Premier League Odds:

    Man City 8/11

    Arsenal 9/2

    Liverpool 15/2

    Man Utd 10/1
    Chelsea 14/1

    (Wow!) Champions League Odds:

    Man City 1/2

    Bayern Munich 2/1

    Real Madrid 8/1
    Barcelona 12/1
    PSG 12/1

    FA Cup & League Cup

    Man City 3/1

    The next priced clubs are 7/1 in either competition to succeed.

    A very dim & dull season ahead according to the bookies!

    And on 61 minutes; Man City make it 3-1 and the champagne is flowing!

    6 titles in 7 years!

    Pointless competition nowadays!

    I’d list them as 1/5 favourites for next season!

    Shall we congratulate them now for winning next year’s crown?

    Villa the surprise package this time finishing fourth but the bookies were spot on with the top three, Manure continue to be the biggest club/ joke in the Premiership. I still speak to a lot of footy fans who are amused by there continued under performance , maybe they’ll win the cup this season.

    Well done to Man C for not only winning again but managing to avoid a points deduction as the likes of Everton and N Forrest werent so looked over by the FA.

    Two to watch next season and if they buy wisely Crystal Palace may well figure in the top 5 , maybe even do a Leicester ??!! the other being Chelsea fancy them to have away better season than this one.

    Cant see Man U being anything other than upper mid table AGAIN

    Can’t disagree with your assessment of Palace and Chelsea, IFA. Both impressive in the last fee weeks. Alot will rest on whether Palace can hold on to those 2 or 3 sparkling gems ..Alese, Eze etc
    Man City are brilliant. Pep is a genius. Foden is outstanding. Haaland is formidable. BUT … like you I am wondering if the best team involved in this equation is the City legal team. If I was a Forest or Everton fan ..or Arsenal and Liverpool .. I would be watching that aspect v carefully.

    If you don’t enjoy watching the likes of De Bruyne, Haarland and Foden plying their trade then there’s something wrong with you!

    Don’t forget that not so long ago people were fed up of Liverpool and Man United winning everything.

    All things must pass.

    Really hoping Foden keeps up his form for the Euros. He’s been incredible this season and a joy to watch.

    That’s reliant on Southgate starting him, which is not a given.

    Also that age old issue of club form not transferring to the international stage. Rooney has to be the biggest flop in recent history in that regard. Gerrard wasn’t great either.

    Lets face it the golden generation were only good club players except for Beckham.
    What made Rooney even worse was his attitude towards England fans.

    Deerey, do you mean the Wayne Rooney who was England’s all-time leading goalscorer?

    I’ve not watched Ingerland since South Africa 2010.

    Bang that drum, toot the vuvuzelas, footballs coming home… lol

    I gave up hope of international success years ago.

    2030 marks the centennial of the inaugural World Cup – will we ever host it again, lest win it?

    Okay, I exaggerated. Not the biggest flop, but take in to account how many games and how many years it took him with the service around him, and in comparison to his club career, he never fulfilled expectation and towards the end of his career seemed to blame everyone else and sulk. Then the issue with supporters as awaywego mentioned. In this regard I wouldn’t say Owen and Kane were / are international flops for instance but more tempted to say Rooney was, 50 odd goals or not. Who were most these goals against? Rarely recall him excelling in the big games, when it really mattered. Major tournaments – bit of a flop.

    I’ll increase the deja vu by replying ‘I’m not that arsed about how well England do and often enjoy the tournament as much or more when they’re knocked out or haven’t qualified.’

    I didn’t say that they weren’t enjoyable to watch. Quite the opposite. My point was around the issue of financial fair play and accompanying sanctions. Like IFA I hope that the scrutiny is evenhanded and that the big money from the Gulf doesn’t buy an out that Forest or Everton couldn’t run to. These financial regulations should be ditched if they can’t be evenly applied.

    The financial fair play rules were brought in IMO to placate the moaning so called ” big clubs”, the ones who used to win most things before the Premiership began and who initially still won most things till foreign investment kicked in big style. Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool were fine when it was all about them but when Chelsea then City received bigger investment and those teams began winning more titles it all kicked off, now Newcastle are joining in the fun.How can a league initially formed because the ” bigger clubs” wanted more of the money in football kept in the top league, start bringing in rules because too much money is being spent by certain clubs to their advantage, it’s crazy and hypocritical, again IMO. You reap what you sow, the game at the top demanded more money in that sector than throughout the game in general and that’s what its got, shut up moaning and live with it. The fines on Everton and Forest are pathetic and unjust and the football authorities should hang their heads in shame for attempting to placate a few big clubs in the sport.

    His right foot.
    No left foot, couldn’t head, no pace, couldn’t tackle, but magic right foot.

    He could pull the birds though, a more clean cut version of George Best in that department, not a patch on George when it came to football ability however.
