They have brought in no galacticos. No £80m on Pogba or paying Sanchez £500k per week.Amazing how many people slate Salford for buying their way in to the football league but celebrate Man City for buying their way to the top.
Which means Man City were 7 points behind Liverpool in the PL at one point. It’s about the whole season, not just a snap shot.They were 7 points clear of Man City in the PL.
Net spend over last 3 seasons.They have brought in no galacticos. No £80m on Pogba or paying Sanchez £500k per week.
Sure they have spent but probably not an awful lot more that Man U and even Liverpool (granted Allison and Van Dyke were great signings)
Pep brought in young players and virtually every one of them he has improved. Unlike Man U!
Thank you for that.Net spend over last 3 seasons.
Man City - £398million
Man Utd - £315m
Arsenal - £157m
Liverpool - £141m
Chelsea - £127m
Spurs - £41m
Inward transfers more than £30m over last 3 seasons
Spurs - 2
Chelsea - 5
Liverpool - 7
Arsenal - 4 (Xhaka & Mustafa somehow cost a combined £80m!)
Man Utd - 7
Man City - 8
Er no.now my memory is probably not what it was but this 7pts people bang on about was this not due to city playing a cup match whilst liverpool played 2 games prior or either side of?...whatever it was the gap was not when they'd both played the same amount of games so can hardly be described as a fu*k up can it !
Thanks for that, just shows as i had in my mind there was another reason for the gap....Er no.
After 20 games (end of 2018) both teams had played 20 games.
Liverpool had 54 points and Man City had 47.
No team had ever not won the PL being that far ahead at the end of a year.
