I have to admit I didn’t enjoy the run in it was too much. When we were 3-1 against Brighton that is when I started to to enjoy the titleI'm glad someone else has said this because I am trying to be philosophical about it as well. The run-in last season was psychologically and emotionally very damaging to fans of both City and Liverpool. I read things about people unable to sleep, unable to eat and completely consumed by the whole thing to the point of a nervous breakdown. None of that can be right as it's supposed to be about enjoyment and a release from pressures of every day life. As it stands, City is an added pressure for many people. I'll admit I got swept up in the tribalism and stress of it all and, on reflection, it didn't do me any good.
I spent many years of my life just wishing we'd maybe win a domestic cup but, like the Trotters, never getting near the pot of gold. Four league titles in seven years has been the stuff of dreams. I'd like it to be five in eight but if it's not then I won't let it affect me. There are simply more important things in life. By the same token, I don't want Liverpool to win it, anyone but them would be fine, but if they do then they will have deserved it. They're a disciplined, well-organised team led by an outstanding manager. They're solid in defence, workmanlike in midfield and lethal in attack. The celebrations would be nauseating but I'd switch off from it and all would return to normal eventually.
A sensible post amongst a sea of wet wipes.A lot of people have already forgotten the last two seasons and the manager and the players are slated left, right and center. Incredible.
We suffered horrific injuries to top talents including our defensive rock. We won 5 trophies in a row in England. We won 64 games from 76 and 198 pts over two seasons. And some can't wait to moan and criticise. How can people be so unhappy now when we have an exceptional manager and an exceptional team?
