    BBC Breakfast and Look North doing a hasty re-write of tomorrows programme as we speak. They need to fill the 4 minute segment where Li'pool won the first major honour of the year with something. My guess is clog dancing in Rawtenstall.

    Yes Hoddle was superb today. First he said it has been great to watch Silva for Spain and Barca down the years. Then said that City had not played enough pre season friendlies. However, on a preview show earlier he said Liverpool had played to many, 5. What is the right amount then Glen, in your opinion?

    Not watched a BT sport commentary since a couple of years ago, at someone’s house
    , when it was really OTT bias.

    Now got BT sport on company phone via EE, so watched Community shield.
    Nice to see the footie on holiday. :-)

    Still have palpitations as we play it around our own box, even though I’ve seen the superb control so many times...still have the overwhelming sense that every commentator would rather stick nails in their eyes than even offer a smidgeon of a compliment, or an acknowledgement of the achievements of the past 2 years. Yes, Mr disabled verbal abuser, im looking at you.

    So, that’ll be BT sport visual with mute on phone, and a Manchester commentary on iPad/computer next time...

    Pretty certain at one point he mentioned Bernie will get the consistency to his play that was missing last season, WTF.

    The Guardian, of course, with its bullshit content and nonsensical headline.....

    Recovery shows Liverpool remain chief threat to City’s home hegemony

    The Community Shield was sufficiently even for Liverpool to have won eventually and that is good news for the Premier League

    https://www.theguardian.com/footbal...ester-city-liverpool-rivalry-community-shield

    Perhaps there is a constituency that simply wants to watch a team playing football extremely well, that does not care too much about the opposition and places no great value on how hard‑earned that virtuosity is. It is the logic that continues to sustain the Harlem Globetrotters.

    That, though, is entertainment while sport, as countless fans of Football League clubs were reminded on Saturday, is very often not entertainment. Struggle is integral to sport: excellence must be earned.

    And the problem for City is that they are so good – thanks to the intensity and brilliance of their manager, to a talented and well‑balanced squad assembled with extraordinary efficiency and, yes, to the vast resources of a foreign government with a dubious human rights record – that there have been times when it did not feel as though they were having to try especially hard, that the machine was so well‑conceived and constructed that it just bore down inevitably to victory, crushing all before it.

    There is something paradoxical in this, of course.
    Sheikh Mansour’s investment in the club in 2008 was an exercise in sportswashing, in familiarising a global audience with Abu Dhabi and making at least a proportion of them feel benignly disposed towards the emirate. But the better City have got, the more likely the prospect of a lengthy hegemony, the more troubling their ownership has come to seem. That came to a head in the FA Cup final and City’s 6-0 victory against Watford. For a mid‑table side who had had a decent season to be so comprehensively outplayed felt a desecration of one of football’s showpieces.
