    I was thinking about this just this morning. It's the 4 minute mile all over again. It also reminded me of the first time 400 runs were scored in a One Day International. It was by Australia. At the end of the innings, the commentators were going on about how it'll take years for anyone else to do it. The record only lasted 4 hours.

    We showed the rest of the EPL what was possible. We set the standard. It kinda sucks that Klopp is now raising it. Fair play to them, I guess.

    Wait a minute... I see what's gone on here. Liverpool and their fondness of hacking, rearing it's ugly head again.

    Isn't the " money spent " just one of the cheap snipes made towards City by all the supporters of clubs who are nowhere near our achievements
    Success on a shoestring - the dipper way !

    I wasn't really comparing them to us I was explaining that they've spent a bucket of money, they have a high wage bill and are not exactly doing a Burnley by being an underdog and winning stuff on a tight budget.

    Are you saying Liverpool are nowhere near our achievements? If so, come back in July.

    Well, they wouldn't, would they! They're that kind of club. Whatever they do, even if they do nowt, is infinitely of better quality than any other club's achievement. That's why they are taking over the mantle of MANUre as the most loathsome football club outside their own support.
