Chelsea will win the league or us. City still have to go to us, Utd, Spurs, Everton and Arsenal. They'll win all their home games but then they've already done that and still arent top.

Manchester City: Premier League club upbeat despite £51.6m loss

Manchester City say they have almost halved their losses for the second consecutive season, posting a net loss of £51.6m, down from £97.9m.

The report for 2012-13 also reveals that the club, crowned Premier League champions in 2012, generated an annual turnover of £271m.

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said success on and off the pitch had "generated significant commercial opportunities for the organisation".

City are currently second in the table.

They lie two points adrift of leaders Arsenal but can go top if they win at Tottenham on Wednesday.

City, managed by Manuel Pellegrini, are also through to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time, have reached the final of the League Cup and are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
I thought we had an FFP thread somewhere, but I can't see it.

From BBC:
Best team on the planet? Manchester City are certainly contenders for that crown. Perhaps we'll find out for sure in the next few months when they are pitted against the best teams on the Continent.

We'll see how they fare against Bayern. Puts our game there into perspective, given that we perhaps should have won.

As good as they've been this season, they just seem to get the decisions at just the right time in all the big games.

vs. Us. The linesman ruled Sterling offside when he was 2 yards on and clear through.
vs. Newcastle away. When Newcastle equalise - Tiote's goal is wrongly scrubbed off
vs. Spurs away. When Spurs equalise - Dawsons goal was ruled offside.

All these 50/50 decisions have gone they're way in recent weeks. Im sure Mauren will be pointing this out in coming days in the build up to the city / chelsea game.

Massive blow to them if true.

Still at least it means the top two goalscorers in the league would ne Liverpool players. It would be amazing to have our two strikers both competing against each other for the golden boot!

So predictably on queue:



“I think they have everything,” said Mourinho. “Everything. The players are obviously very good. Even with very good players, if the manager is not good, you don’t do it. On top of that – and I want to make it very clear that, for me, it’s just a coincidence and nothing else – the reality is they have many crucial decisions in their favour.

"They are lucky. Against Liverpool, the Sterling ‘goal’. The penalty on Suárez. Against Newcastle, the goal that is a clear goal. Against Tottenham, Dawson’s goal, the penalty and the red card. They are having everything. I repeat: just pure coincidence. But at the moment they have everything in their favour.”

They've just been granted planning permission to increase the stadium capacity to 62,000.

Part of the reason they were attractive for overseas buyers. Nice, stupidly cheap stadium courtesy of the taxpayers. Lots of space to increase the size to really increase revenues.

What a shocking performance and atmosphere by their fans. City's biggest European game in decades and their fans don't bother showing up to create a decent atmosphere. Imagine that was at anfield the place would have been rocking.

A true eye opener for city tonight.

Slowly turning into United- crying that every tackle isn't a free-kick to them and complaining when the ref correctly fives a foul against them

Money really can destroy the soul of a club

Aguero out for at least two weeks. Misses the game away at Man Utd.

At that rate he'll struggle to get any form going before the end of the season. He was quite poor against Barca I thought.
