    So?

    What do you expect from a Club with nothing like the worldwide presence of a liverpool or Manu. They have to start somewhere and to get there and maintain it takes money. Still if it was easy United would have won the league every year.

    Might have lost the EPL but I couldn't be more proud of the team. It's the how it's been done that I like. Hope we win the cl final at least to keep the liverpool fans that don't understand what's happening at bay.

    Yeah, I mean Liverpool have only spent a billion+ on players since 2010 but who's counting

    Exactly, it’s taken ten years of purchasing to get here and build a team.

    Don’t get me wrong, Peps brilliant in the league on an infinite budget (can’t consistently do it against the best teams without the GOAT, hence embarrassing CL failures since leaving Barca).

    Also it’s easily reduced to buying given they have the highest spend and net spend. (Don’t get me wrong I think Peps class despite being a crap person)

    Properly baffling the Liverpool fans making out like they haven't spent a lot of money

    Atleti and Spurs didn’t require that 0.o

    Manu should compete every year and have basically been set up for failure since Ferguson left, he left that team in horrible shape and it was said from the moment it happened. They’ve not bought anyone impressive other than Pogba who they originally sold

    I can’t see anybody making that out here, they’ve spent big but nowhere near City levels in the last 10 years.

    City have £50 million pound players on the bench week in week out.

    Amazing that Man Utd would have qualified for CL in 4th if they had won their last two games of Huddersfield and Cardiff...

    Properly baffling that one can’t see the difference between selling to buy and having sustainable funding without corruption vs being funded by a bunch of lads born on oil (and the levels still aren’t even close)

    Cause since klopp came in we haven't really, our net spend is low and compared to city all most none existent

    Countinho essentially covered dijk and Alison.

    Regardless city won the title not due to money imo, they were better marginally, money does help but only if spent right.

    Utd, Chelsea spent regularly and are turd atm

    Man City have spent £360m more than Liverpool since 2010. Hardly a gulf in spending between the two given we're talking in excess of £1.3b spent by City
