    It is simply insane, City have got 198pts in the last 2 seasons. Crazy amount.

    Am gutted but proud of my team, actually fought for the title and only ones to do so.

    I'll be devasted if Madrid ends in disaster but I have faith

    City are way more than the sum of their parts. They buy selectively and don't generally go for superstar players.

    Think of where they have had to come from relative to Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea.

    Fair play to them - their owners may be horrors, but to reduce them to buying their victories is a massive disservice.

    Lost by one point to the best team the EPL has ever seen. Amazing amazing consistency from Liverpool to run with that pressure game in game out.

    I'd argue it was their H2H with City more than anything. Pretty fair in the grand scheme of things I guess.

    It makes me laugh when all the pundits talk about City's success as if it is self made. Brian Clough and what he did with Derby/Nottingham forest was self made. What Klopp has done is self made. City has just been pumping money in non stop for the past 10 years.

    Nice send off for Rafa for us :)

    Hope he stays but Cashley is a **** and I don't blame Rafa heading off to somewhere he can actually achieve something. Good luck to him.

    Dropping 75 million on a centre back is not self made, don't talk garbage.

    Football is about money, don't like it make the switch to American sports which are still about money but a little fairer with drafts.

    Also money doesn't guarantee success, look at the state of Real, ManU and Chelsea this year who have spent insane money over the years and have been to varying degrees a joke.

    Thats the key, in the past we've challenged one year and then dropped off the following year. Consistently challenging for the title is the thing. As Carragher said though, its getting mad that these days to win the league you need to hit the mid 90s on points so its not going to get any easier. The big teams will spend big in the summer again and strengthen again, its not going to be any easier next year. Guardiola and City have got a real opportunity here to go on and dominate the league in a way we havent seen for a long long time, not just by winning the title but by winning it by a long way each year, if the rest cant lift themselves up.

    CL win for Liverpool is still huge and will hurt City fans who almost seem bored of league titles already.
