    Absolutely correct!

    It should be a fucking wakeup call for the club but it won't be. They will sign up to these stupid world tours hindering us every season just to earn that bit more money.

    If it was up to me, and going off Pep's call when he had control of it one year at Bayern, our pre-season would be:
    Training starts at the CFA
    Friendly at the CFA against a lower league local side
    Training camp in the Med
    An Etihad tournament at the Etihad
    Training camp in the Alps
    A tournament in Dublin or Glasgow
    Training at the CFA
    Friendly in London/Community Shield

    Fuck these stupid world tours off.

    Over the years we've seen players pick up injuries on baseball pitches, players picking up injuries on bobbly/poor pitches. players playing when jet lagged, us spending more time on planes and coaches than actually training or properly resting, and us sometimes playing no more than four matches.

    We've definitely looked under cooked at the start of this season.

    Maybe we should judge the effect of pre season at the end of the season, China ain't going away with their stake in the club, City will come good and we will win trophies again this season, early wake up call won't do us any harm for future results and potential for strengthening the defence in January ... I'm more than happy for every **** and his dog writing us off this early in the season, City will thrive on this negativity and produce the goods when it matters....! How many
    " We are going to win the league" trophies have the dippers won now?..

    You may be right Karen but if the right player is available for the right money, I'm sure you would agree Pep won't pass up an opportunity to strengthen the squad ....

    Before writing off our press, it is worth just looking at how good Norwich were



    That's football we would be proud of.

    It is and Pep of course is getting no recognition for it.We have revolutionised the game in this country. .and of course teams are learning how to deal with us...if their managers have the balls to instruct their teams to do so.Norwich City's manager has to be given great credit for his teams display on Saturday.

    An unfortunate game where the mistakes normally spread over ten or a dozen matches all appeared in one!

    I think Saturday's poor performance was down to a lack of preparation, might explain why everyone was shite. These international breaks just fuck everything up.
