I wonder how much it really means to fans when you know it'll be you or the other team who wins it every year. Wouldn't that be like continuing to play a video game you've beaten? Where's the fun in it?

I wonder if Leicester fans felt differently to City fans when they won it.

I get what you’re saying, but they probably know they need to enjoy it while they’re having their time in the sun. It’s cyclical isn’t it, it wasn’t long ago that it was Man United or Chelsea that everyone hated. But yeah, probably would lose its appeal slightly. Mind you, as unthinkable as it is, I can’t see myself ever getting bored with Ipswich winning the league even if we were massively bankrolled (not that I want that particularly)

I think the cycle may have been broken now though. Unless their owners get bored of them there are only so many Dr Evil types who want to waste their money on a football club.

It just seems like a boring and simple equation to me. Throw astronomical sums of money around. Get the best people in. Win everything. Whoopdedo.

FC Socialism can moan about the money spent neatly forgetting that they spunked north of £150m on a goalie and a centre back.

Exactly.

I'm sure the football is excellent though. Just like watching the Harlem Globetrotters do their thing or something.

Pretty much paid for by Coutinho though who has certainly not shone at Barca like Becker and Van Dijk have at Liverpool. Very good business if you ask me.

Plus Keita, Fabinho, Shaqiri...

Their transfer business has been excellent but they’re hardly paupers - in fact their spending has far outstripped the rest of the league across the past few transfer windows

I was thinking exactly the same watching the City fans today. Of course they wanted to win it, and at the time it probably felt massive but let’s face it, they win it last year, they’ll probably win it next year, and they’re going to win 2 cups.

I doubt it would have broken their hearts had they missed out.

I doubt many United fans can even remember all the titles they’ve won in their lifetime, yet another reason I love supporting town. You’ve got to have the lows to enjoy the highs properly.

I reckon we’ve had enough lows now though....

If it helps, I've been watching today with a City supporting who, in the first half certainly, has been through the emotional wringer.

These people are called idiots and BB is their leader.

The last high proper high moment we had was the play off final win. The year 2000. Yes we finished 5th the year after but for me that for me was the best moment. Hopefully 20 years on we can celebrate a promotion once again.
