I think it's the fact City went two divisions down yet still retained a good crowd which makes.me not dislike them.

The old school big sides with huge support - Newcastle, Villa, Spurs, West Ham and ourselves have not a hope in hell competing. I don't think we have a god given right at all, but wouldn't mind being in a position to challenge in the future and I can't see it getting easier whilst the top 2 spend huge amounts more than everyone else
I agree with all of that. Its not great, but when you look at the season before last, I think a lot of neutrals found it very exciting when we were challenging for the top, simply because we're miles behind the likes of City and Chelsea. OK, it won't happen very often, but when it does you could add that it makes it an even more exciting spectacle.

Kristor Terreur - the man for Belgian football. @HLNinEngeland: The hijacking window: Bayern Munich have joined #mcfc in the race for Kevin De Bruyne. No decision taken yet, though.

Always thought Bayern would enter the race for KDB and hard to imagine him turning them down if they do come in for him.

Bayern spokesman Markus Hoerwick told reporters about the Wolfsburg midfielder: "We will definitely not become active in the matter of De Bruyne. This is something the board has decided for some time."

Manchester City are finalising a deal to sign Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg and it could be completed on Tuesday, Sky Germany report.

That pass was world class, very good finish too mind.

Up 1-0 in the 88th minute, a give-and-go between Nasri and Toure saw the Ivorian deliver this filthy no-look chipped pass that Nasri then lifted over Tim Howard for a goal. What a beauty.

BREAKING: DE BRUYNE'S MUNICH TALKS

Sources in Belgium have told SSNHQ that Kevin de Bruyne’s representatives have had no contact or discussions with Manchester United.

It’s understood however that they have held talks with Bayern Munich’s President Karl-Heinz Rummenigge about the player joining the Bundesliga champions at the end of the season.

Man City remain favourites to sign the winger and talks to conclude a deal worth up to £58m are continuing today. It’s understood the player is happy to join City, but has said he “won’t go to war” with Wolfsburg.

Manchester City are confident they have finally agreed a deal to sign Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg for an initial €74m (£54m), although bonuses could take the deal beyond €80m (£58.5m).

Negotiations over the Belgium midfielder have been taking place for several weeks and sources close to the Bundesliga club have confirmed that a breakthrough was reached on Wednesday. Several details still need to be resolved, including the structure of payments due and the player’s medical.

However, it is understood that De Bruyne will fly to England on Thursday for his medicaland is expected to be officially unveiled as a City player on Fridaytomorrow.

If the deal goes through, it would become the second highest transfer fee paid by an English club behind the £59.7m Manchester United paid for Ángel di María last summer. It would also surpass the club record £49m City paid to Liverpool for Raheem Sterling earlier this summer.De Bruyne is expected to be offered wages worth around £250,000 a week.

De Bruyne is fucking dross. Fifty four million, fifty four fucking million for someone who is pure dog shit. If someone like George Best, Pele, Maldini, Dalglish were playing now, in this modern day era they'd be worth five hundred and fifty million pounds, £550 million and that's just a figure I've made up from thin air for pure quality. That is how ridiculous football has become. I'm not a footballer, in fact I don't play for anyone not even 5 a side. I reckon in today's market because I can kick a ball, based on that alone I'd be worth 1 million.

Manuel Pellegrini's side plan to offer De Bruyne a contract until 2021 worth £15m per year, almost £300,000 a week. (Daily Mirror)

yeah it will begin to grate. Their supporters will get worse and worse too. I don't mind the old skool supporters who have been there through the tough times but much like Chelsea... the new generation of supporters are wankers.

It really is mental alright. He did have a fabulous last season, but City are so desperate that Wolfsburg have just sat back and waited for them to pay the money they want ..exactly what we did with Sterling & exactly what Valencia did with Otamendi aswell.
