I haven't followed exactly what was claimed but I have a spreadsheet with net spending of City and Utd populated by transfermkt that has City and Utd's net spending back to 2012/13 season (Fergie's last year).

The figures are in £m.

You can justify whatever you want if you select the right time period but over the last decade, using transfermarkt data, Man Utd have a higher net spend than City. A decade seems a fair enough time period to me. That takes us into the Fergsuon era.

He's claiming that City have the largest % of top 20 purchases with sterling in there but not Fred

The narrative is just getting it in early, as they want to again smear the legitimacy of another (hopefully) City title triumph.

It's reached fever pitch because they know the only way to prevent us dominating for another decade is to soil both our brand and the Premier League product, so the brain dead masses will be fully compliant when the old guard co-conspirators try to rig the rules and jury again.

The greatest payback we can deliver this season is to win Prem, FA Cup and Champions League, followed by Haaland signing and Pep extending this summer.

It will kill them all.
Absolutely spot on. I honestly believe one of the reasons we are so dominant is that we know we have to beat the officials as well as the opposition and hence the relentlessness of our play.

Did he then block you or is that a stupid question?
I think I gave up on him at that point and blocked him. But he also blocked me.

And talking about Nob Harris, is it my imagination or has he calmed down a lot these days? In other news, UAE and Qatar restored diplomatic relations recently.

His best mate McKenna similarly and quickly went off the deep end into a thoroughly self destructive spiral of Ian Brown-style Covid denier conspiracy madness. This was not only indicative of an obsessive and delusional personality disorder which drove his ludicrous and defamatory campaign against City, but has rendered him even more unemployable than he already was.
At least he used to get sympathy commissions from his mates. Now he has fallen out with nearly all of them as well and is reduced to begging for spare change on Twitter and his barking at the moon blog.
Interestingly, Mackenna is still tweeting regularly but nothing about us this year so far, which is strange given our accounts came out recently. I wonder if he's another we've had a quiet word with. Or our lawyers have, more likely.

Decent read this one. Seems we're not the only team to ruin football after all.

Ironic really - the ones mainly moaning about it are the 2 sets of red plastic fans, but they only chose to support those 2 clubs because of their respective eras of domination.
