    The final nails in the coffins of:

    ‘Our players play for the club, not the money’ - Sanchez blew the last shredded and wrecked piece of that out of the water.

    ‘City’s defence can be got at’ - laughable, as this was still being trotted out as the 18 unbeaten run unfolded.

    ‘The United way’ - it never was, other than the strangely regular occurrences of ‘fergie time’.

    ‘The Arabs will get bored’ - I look forward to the takeover 10th anniversary celebrations.

    ‘The club is the only one funded by related dodgy despicable regimes’ - Russia and Saudi are clearly paragons of virtue.

    ‘The scaffold/cup final games are always packed out’ - pictures must be all photoshopped these days

    ‘They are the only ones with dubious commercial deals’ - Chevrolet pulls over and flashes lights, pops its trunk

    ‘City are on PEDs , they run everywhere more than anyone’ - but they don’t, they only run ‘whilst in possession’ more than anyone else ... because they have the ball more than anyone else.


    ... off the top of head.

    However I doubt these are nails , as we’ll see them reeled out ad infinitum till we are 2 more decades down the line.
