I was hoping that QPR would be able to hold on to it at 2-1. It would have proved in some way that you can't just buy a Premier League title.

(I should note that as a Villa fan I'm a bitter and twisted person)


That's been disproven before though, and I admit this as a Chelsea fan.



themanwithnoname's law: As an America's sales or NPD thread grows longer, the probabilty of the comment "America = World" [sarcasticly] being made approaches 1.

Football is just which billionaire owner has more cash now. Nothing to do with the area the team is based in.

I can support England because the players are all English but City is a random assortment of expensive footballers like any other major team.


I'm taking the piss out of "Manchester" Utd... a club that isn't even in Manchester.

and to other posters...

EVERY title is bought to some extent, doesnt stop what we have just witnessed being unbelievable entertainment.

Chelsea's money has essentially bought them three titles.

Maybe when every club is owned by an eccentric billionaire the league will be fairer :).

For me, the bought aspect kills the games's integrity and I prefer to find sports (Tennis, Golf) or formats (World Cup) that don't suffer from that.

Why we watch sport is storylines. The game itself is not too exciting (imagine a ball going back and forth for 90 minutes), instead it is the meaning of what takes place (against the history of the team, what else is happening in the season) that makes it entertaining. Well, the storyline is always the same. Russian billionaire buys club, removes all management and local players, buys out the best on the world market and hammers people until they get a trophy. Then they lose interest and the next benefactor spends more money.

"Incredible" "Lovely" "!!!!!!" from the OP imply that Man City's victory was taken as a personal victory by you, not just entertaining. You don't get that !!!!! feeling from watching cat videos on youtube despite how entertaining they are. So, how could you even identify with a club? What about it makes you want to support it or empathise with its story?

So very disappointing and I'd like to echo Rol's words:
"Celebrating a team like Manchester City is just wrong."

Doubt it.

The German Bundesliga had Schalke 04 make a comeback from a 0:2 to a 4:2 while Bayern Munich was trailing 0:1 with a poor performance. Schalke 04's game ended; the fans, players and staff were celebrating and in the final minute of injury time Munich scored the 1:1. Schalke was only champion for a few minutes and all their dreams were brutally crushed.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
