i dont know whats so funny

i know city failed last year but that was their first year in cl and most of their players just signed there. now they have chemistry and much more depth to play in all competitions.
i dont think there has been more underestimated english champion ever by the fans

look at all the sport betting sites, city are the clear 3rd favorite after barca and real, united, bayern and chelsea are 4-5-6 respectively

They're deceived by the fact that Bayern's season fell apart last year, which was all due to depth issues. Man City is not on Bayern's level.

Hell, Bayern with a crippled Schweinsteiger even bossed Madrid around to a degree.

On paper, if the 2011-2012 CL campaign was simulated 100 times, who would win it the most times? In this case people are allowed to think critically and possibly come to the conclusion that the best team didn't win the CL.

I certainly will not take anything away from Chelsea though. As I said, they're top dogs in Europe until some dethrones them. Going back to the gun to my head thing though, if that happened and I was asked to pick the winner of the 2011-2012 CL season if it were to be replayed, I would not pick Chelsea.

Is that fair enough? I know people here like to disagree for the sake of it...
Fair enough well articulated thoughts and views

Also he has gotten in fights with 3 of tottenhams players already, promised Dawson would be captain in preseason then decides to get rid of him. Plays a stupid system. No wonder everywhere he goes the players instantly hate him.

HE OWES HIS ENTIRE CAREER TO FALCAO. Without Falcao's 50 goals he would have been exposed for the scrub manager that he is

They might not have been last year. But this one you cant really say that. After all they are the champions of the best league in the world

Sterling is a stud but he's definitely not better than Suarez, Gerrrard, Skrtel, etc. I really don't like Borini for Liverpool or not as a target forward. I think he's a decent player but he doesn't seem like the player who can challenge defenders 1 v 1 while he relies on his off ball movement for his offense. Basically I think Carrol is a much better player

Gerrard is pretty useless he is slow and gives the ball away every single time he touches it.
