Premier League 2020/21 Thread

Recommended Posts

These games are so dull. It isn't Wolves fault, Man City have far too much for most and for the second straight year the title is done going into March.

That squad is unreal and it will only get stronger. They could potentially dominate for years. The best time to play man city is in the first 5 games of the season as they tend to start slow. 

 

The only team I see challenging them at the minute for dominance is Bayern.

Man City can press relentlessly because they have a fully fit squad with 2 £50m players for every position, meaning they can rotate continually and keep players fresh. 

 

Most other teams have flogged the same 12 or 13 players for week after week and they're all spent as a result.

 

However good Man City are, though, it still rankles how they pulled a fast one over Xmas claiming they had a massive Covid outbreak when it became clear later they hadn't (look at the team they were able to field in the following game). That was the one point in the season when their squad was a bit stretched and they were due to play Everton away only 2 days after their previous game. By getting the match called off then they got much needed rest and avoided having to play a tricky fixture at a time when they were depleted and couldn't rotate the same quality into the team. They'd have probably still won the league but that was unfair in my view.

Just not good for football 

Those who don’t get on their bench could probably give it a good go. Insane really.

Was it really only four days a go when some people on here were cheering West Ham on against Man City as they thought we could win the title and West Ham weren't a threat to our top four ambitions? :D

Thing is, if they were a global powerhouse of football like Man U or liverpool generating vast sums of income via genuine commercial activities then I would just shrug my shoulders but they’re just cheats ....financial dopers and the real shame is that most genuine Man City fans would agree though they wouldn’t change anything !

Hahahah go on Wolves.

Man City will probably up the gears quick-time though and win but this is fun anyway. Been battered all game and score from a set-piece. Pulis-esque, that.

Yes - probably scored 30mins too soon!
