http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/11398471/premier-league-winter-break-approved-from-2019-20-fa-confirms

So the PL will get a winter break in February, leaving the Christmas fixtures in place and also still playing PL football each weekend. Not the best solution imo, but also not the worst.
february is a long ways away from the festive period. the fatigue and stuff is mostly during that festive period, i thought? i cant remember when knockout stages for europe start and when international breaks are, but i hope the break does make a difference. PL teams have done really well in group stages, then seem to hit a wall after christmas and i think a lot of that is down to fatigue and injuries over the holiday period. everyone including pep says its a huge disadvantage to not have a winter break, so i'm glad they came together and got something done instead of status quo
best solution indeed. I have wanted this exact solution for so long. This way we do not miss our beloved holiday games, and the players get a rest after!
It should make the CL and league run-ins much more interesting, for sure. But, we played 4 games in 8 days over Christmas last season. I think that's still a bit too much. It'll be nice to have a break, and I don't want them to get rid of the holiday fixtures, but I do think they need to be spread out more.
Would you take Yaya on a free transfer? Seluk has officially hawked Yaya on a £1/week salary to the top 6 clubs outside of City, to take revenge on Pep.

Thoughts?
Noooop
Wanna put this in here now. I was disappointed to see Salah go off. But to say Ramos injured salah is a farce. He purposely tried to bring him down of course....BUT salah got injured by the way he landed. Not Putting your arm down like that to break your fall is like the first thing you get taught.
+3
Spot-on...but Ramos reputation does not help him and also any Pool fan would be disappointed not to see der best player play full 90min in the most important game of season. So it is normal for everyone to feel it was intentional and show frustration now.

I'm sure Chelsea would feel same if foul was against Hazard , City if it was KDB...it was very unfortunate.
I think he was overly aggressive in that challenge. There's no need to pull him to the ground and lock his arm, but I get that it's a final and you go all out no matter what. It's unfortunate, but winners at the highest level often do little things like that to keep the odds in their favor. Ramos is a c**t, but he's a f*****g winner. Everyone knows it's nice to have a guy like that on your team and it absolutely sucks playing against guys like that.
+3
A few things. I thought it was a brilliant game all around to watch as a neutral. Great memories.
It was a very hard fought game with hard tackles all night. If you’re gonna say the Ramos tackle was dirty and not par for the course you weren’t watching the game and you don’t have appreciation the competitiveness in this game. Liverpool our in some tackle that could have ended a worldcup as well.
Non professional footballers talking none sense

Karius obviously should have kept out that last goal but he's not the first goalkeeper who's been made a fool from a swerving Bale bullet.

And if that was Bale's last game for RM, what a way to leave! I guess Spurs will be obliged to take him back, even though we might have to let Dele go the other way. But Bale deserves to get back to his best football again, every week.
+1
Bale's leaving RM? Did not know that. What a cameo though. Finished the game.

Karius clearly messed up. Funny how similar this was to Ulreich's mistake the game right before. Maybe Benzema does a great job of pressing? Surely we must give him some credit.

Bale's rocket got the respect it deserved :D
+1
In the press conference one journalist told Bale Tottenham has a buyback clause and he said he will speak to his agent over the summer to see whats best for him....I wonder how much is the buyback clause? Tottenham should sign him he can still play at the top level for another 3 or 4 years
It is very admirable that Bale puts playing week in and week out over trophies - after having won 3 CLs in a row.

I really do think he might end up at United though. They are thirsting for that superstar signing that can kickstart their season next year.
Bale might struggle at LWB just like how Sanchez is at RWB...its different from playing at Real
+3
Sanchez at RWB? He has been playing left wing all the time.
Dint bale start aT LB and then LWB in PL...I think he moved to Right because Ronaldo prefers the Left side
+1
I am confused. Are you talking about Bale or Sanchez?

Bale: Yes he started at LB, but evolved into a world class LW, not a LWB. He is a world class forward and would drift centrally at Spurs to score goals like Salah does these days. At Madrid, yes, he played RW mostly - but that's because they like playing the inside forwards with Ronaldo on the left and a left footer on the right. I think Bale did play centrally as well several times in a front two. In short - I think he can play anywhere across the forward line in multiple roles.

Sanchez: RW at Barcelona, LW at Arsenal, sometimes CF before he left. Mou has tried him around Lukaku at times but seems like his stable position is LW for the most part (United fans correct me if I am wrong)

I don't think Bale is going to struggle at all. He is a veteran of two fantastic leagues. If at all, it is going to be injuries that can be his undoing. Bale by himself is a world class player no matter where he ends up.

Never seen before in the history of footytube, one team taking up two lines of space in the table, breaking records everywhere ;) See you guys next season, hopefully it'll be a contest next time around.
+3
But City's line is just blank, not sure who took 1st place ;)
+6
It just means the rest can't see us, too far ahead :p
you guys just bought that line of space #bantz
+1
Lol, nah we are just that good at creating space no matter how small, just ask Silva and De Brunye.
+1
touché!
The post below started by FootballisCity made me start thinking who would get into a joint 11 between the invicibles and this man city side. So many brilliant attackers to choose from.

This is mine

--------------------Ederson
Walker Kompany Campbell Cole
-------------De Bruyne Vieira
-----------Silva Bergkamp pires
----------------------Henry


I wanted sane and sterling in but I left them as impact subs.

Sane or Pires was my hardest decision along with kolo or kompany. Kompany is my captain though.
Kompany actually played very few games this year. I'd put in Otamendi if you must.
Honestly pretty hard to argue with this line up. Obviously would want Sané or sterling in there but it’s one half dozen of the other. As long as people have the intelligence to include Silva in things I can’t really get mad.
Yeah, pretty much spot on, I would put Lehman instead of Ederson personally.
Good choices. Cant argue. Pires is very underrated .
Great! Now that that crap is over we can focus on the World Cup.
Absolutely! I'm feeling good about it this year. I think this is finally the year where the United States can return to the quarte--...... f**k me

100 points! Best team in the premier league history hands down! until another team comes and wins 33+ premier league matches in a single season, scores 107+ goals, get 101+ points, wins 19+ games in a row, wins by 20+ point gap, wins 17+ away games, concedes the least in the league, goal difference of 80+! Before anyone brings up cup competitions let me remind you we are talking best team in the Premier League history not cup competitions. Our numbers are so great that on the table on the right Manchester City is taking up 2 rows of space! ONE HUNDRED POINTS let that sink in!
+1
you are totally correct, but do you have to be such a douche about it?
+10
Salah best goal scorer in PL history!
+7
By this logic City of 11/12 must be the worst PL champion of all time. Imagine having to win the title on GD!
+3
@Jamesutd Man City has earned its bragging rights this season! As Pep said these records may never be broken!

@KevMo Salah is the best!

@Joeymac if thats what you think!
congrats and its actually 19 points gap not 20+, its simple mathematics check it out ,plus yous lost to Us from being 2 up and nearly got spanked by Pool , hardly the invincibles but yea keep bragging yous deserve it this year
+1
As much as it pains me to say it, The invincibles are a legendary team. You can't take away the fact that nobody could beat them in the league so for me they remain the best team.

Man city were sick this season though, for me I put them second for the football they have played and 100 points is Amazing. However I'm not sure it's a legendary achievement.
+2
@Footymasta - he said 20 because that is what will take to beat the 19. To be precise it would be 20 or more. I know, I know - I don't read his posts because they can get very annoying - but you should read it right if you were to accuse him of being wrong. Also, losing 3-4 is not being 'spanked' if you will.

@Bwfyid - the invincibles had 90 points. 12 draws and 26 wins. City had 32 wins and 4 draws, 2 losses. I've always maintained that the invincibles have been the best - but seeing how tough 100 points were to get, my mind has changed. Your argument of 'nobody could beat them' could be turned into - they played way more conservative football, scoring 73 as opposed to City's 106. But of course - to each their own. Definitely respect your point of view.

@Joeymac - If you play with fire then get ready to be burnt lol. Not the first time I am warning you hahah. Logic does not work everywhere.

@Everyone, please keep in mind that one fan does not represent the entire fanbase, so do not talk to him as if he represents City. You very well know he does not. Make no mistake, this was an incredible achievement, but best cherished by us fans, rather than used to toot the horn and diminish it. Looking forward to the next season.

signing off with a 100 :P


+3
Nah they deserve to gloat, great season for city. Its best to celebrate while you can, look at us ha.
+2
@BluFFmaster exactly! Ppl like @Tomikato need to be told "You know nothing Jon Snow!"
They literally won a golden premier league trophy after going a whole season unbeaten.
+1
Tomi i could turn that around and say the same to you , if u were to accuse me at least read my post propally. he said "won by 20 + points" , i said 19; which is correct and my previous comment read "nearly spanked by pool " which isnt the same as spanked, as yous managed to pull it back "nearly". i stand by my post and i will say it again:

Congrats yous deserved it and should brag because was an impresive display throughout the season, till next season.
Enjoy the World Cup
19 is still wrong buddy. You have to better it. He is unfortunately right in this case.
Do you remember we won against Pool 5-1? So how is 3-4 a near spanking?

The truth is that in spite of a magnificent season we have only one fan being truly obnoxious. I think that's a win. Don't fall for the bait.
Wait, so Tomi if another team tied all of City's records, who would be the better team--who played in a harder league season? Whoever won more trophies overall? The team that won back-to-back titles? All of a sudden the stats from an individual season become relative don't they....
Absolutely agreed - they are always relative. Even the joy - always relative. What we felt on the last day of that 2011-2012 season we could not feel even with 100 points.

I am in no ways saying this is the best team ever. That would be foolish. My answer to Footymasta was based solely on the record, since he brought up a technicality which was not the point of the post anyways and more of a jibe at footballiscity

The best team ever conversation is also very relative and will always be. Are we talking about a year? 5 years? Decade? Everyone has their own timeframe and that’s what makes these conversations annoying at times as well.

City is at the start of something very very exciting. You can not deny at this point that this team could go into history as one of the best if they win another title or two in quick succession and show consistency. I’d be a silly band wagoner to say this is the best team based on one years stats. However, it has been an incredible season, cannot deny that
