Bazinga why didnt you mention the 2018 stat? is it because it doesn't fit your agenda??? how much did we spend per player in those 3 years that you have mentioned? less than 40mil per player?

Don't be so salty be happy and brag about how you can splash the cash
Newsflash! Things cost more as time progresses! More money is spent each year! What an insightful comment.

FootballisCity - Please see that 2018 stats posted by Fxate...congratulations City top the spending window 3 times out of last 4 seasons.

Now come-up with new crap on how city have 50m..bore everyone to death.

Its a pity that you are more worried about spending and less interested in talking about dominating football city are playing.
@Fxate now make one for the most expensive single player transfer

@Bazinga you see how you exaggerated with all your stats? just look at your numbers dude and we call you an accountant after this?

P S its not fair to take the last 4 years when City were rebuilding the entire squad...we should look at either last 15 years or at present just this years window...you can't pick and choose just a few years so that it fits your agenda
+1
Oops I accidentally like your comment Football, please dont look too much into it. I meant to press reply and tell you guys to GET A f*****g ROOM! Sick of this stupid bs about spending and which one spends slightly more and bla bla bla. You guys sound so ridiculous so please drop it because the season has barely started and I can't take 9 f*****g months of this.
+4
KevMo I have a solution for you...simply ignore it thats all, you don't have to read it and if you do just ignore it...its not that hard...there are a lot of topics that I don't like that are being discussed I simply ignore it ;)
FootballisCity - if you want i can pick last 15 years and still City will be on top when it comes to Net spending over last 15 years. But again you have this boring argument last year and the year before in this page....not going to waste more space pasting more spending stats
Does this mean Tottenham could get relegated?
+1
But city still has a 50 millions cap for non attacking players.
+1
Y'all still expect this guy to make sense, or otherwise respond to it? Props.
+1
yall feeding the troll nothing more ha.

I love spending money, i'm not ashamed of it. Plastic & proud.
+1
Haha Bluff
@Joeymac, this is exactly what I was telling you few weeks ago when you were happy trying to make sense of everything :D and expense important CPU brain cycles

@Bazinga & @FootballisCity - if I were owning this website I'd just make another page called the 'FootballisCity & Bazinga Show' - hahaha
+1
@Tomikato lol the more we use our brain the better....there is a saying "use it or lose it" ;)
^ To that I totally agree my friend. We all come here for some indulgence and usage. Can't deny it.
Oh I'm sure I'll be sucked into making the rounds again at some point, Tomi.
FootballisCity:"@Fxate now make one for the most expensive single player transfer"

Ok!

Great Picture

Would you look at that! City has the most players in the world's most expensive XI. Meanwhile, no other PL team has more than 1.

I'll say this again for the 100th time: Yes, we all know and agree that Chelsea and United spend a ton of money! Stop trying to twist, turn, and contrive a reality where City are somehow morally superior on the spending front. They aren't! They are essentially the same. If anything, slightly slightly worse. Slightly. But, again, essentially the same.
I don't usually get into money spent arguments but the list of most expensive players you got there in my opinion does not validate City spending more than others. We could look at it this way, those three players there or two could amount roughly to the price one of those clubs paid for one player, and that goes without saying those other clubs brought in more players as well surely above the 50m bracket, Alisson, Morata, Lukkaku, etc, so in my eyes City spends money more conservative in a business sense that they won't spend ridiculous amount of money on one player eg Neymar, Mbappe, Coutinho, Pogba, like other clubs, at least I've yet to see it, while Mahrez being our club record signing fee at just around 60mil, but I may be wrong I don't care either way, if you have your money to buy the players you want buy them, it's one of the only ways to get better aside from bringing in stars from the youth academy.

Who am I to judge, money and good recruiting is what got us to this point, and great managers.
Liverpool were the 'unluckiest' team in the Premier League last season while Manchester United were the 'luckiest', new research claims.

https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45087444

Interesting :P
Doubt it, but hell yeah keep it up, triple that performance and the league is ours
Sounds about right, Lady Luck is a cold hearted bitch.
I don't buy that. They have simulated the results assuming decisions had gone another way but that still only estimates possible outcomes.

We all know you can win games despite red cards and incorrect decisions. Penalties could be missed even if they were correctly given before.

This is a really pointless waste of an article, I feel.
+3
Agreed with Deffy and whats surprising is BBC posts such article.
Everton with a sneakily effective window. Richarlison, Digne, and now Bernard. They used to be a team that was solid down the middle but struggled for goals, although they've yet to completely adapt to a manager since Moyes left. Wonder if they've got enough quality to challenge that top 6 hump this year.
We'll see if those players can impact the league and help Everton climb higher. They've had decent signings before as have other mid table teams however just because the team has some good signings doesn't guarantee success.
No more cold rainy nights at Stoke. This premier league season is already looking good.

To be fair stoke only turned up against United, rolled over to other sides.

Prepare to endure the cold rainy nights of Manchester

Hey guys, ahead of this exciting and new season I was thinking about starting a new WhatsApp chat group for any current or former footytube member. If it gets a lot of interest, it could be pretty fun, we could have match day chats, transfer discussions, banter etc. All with members supporting different teams. So let me know who is interested, If we have a lot of interest il post an invite link here to join (you just need WhatsApp).

I have a group with just Chelsea footytube members and it’s been very successful. I think this can be too!
I would be very interested recently got WhatsApp too
Good idea.
I'm interested.
the more WhatsApp groups you create the more you are killing this website. Look at Real Madrid forum they all left cos some idiot decided to create a WhatsApp group. Not everyone will join this WhatsApp group and you will end up with less ppl being active on this site.

Lol Footballiscity why are you so worried about the website?
lol Tomikato is that a bad thing? I'm trying to keep the community together ;)
@FootballisCity if this website is serious about maintaining its users, it should maintain itself and make improvements. Whtatsapp groups are there in case this site turns into a shitshow one day and everyone loses contacts.
+4
This website died years ago. Its surviving the way it has due to the brilliant mods like Tomi KGB etc. The owners could care less about it.

There doesn't seem to be that much interest anyways.

That guy shamelessly copies other people's tweets so often. This one is no different; it's from https://twitter.com/ODDSbible
Wow, didn't know. Thanks for the headsup J.
I have a mild hatred of people stealing jokes, stemming from my days in high school. I usually made situational jokes, but kind of under my breath. Then this one guy kept repeating them as loud as he could to gain credit. *shakes fist*
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1tsGGz-Qw0
@Jeroen who the f* cares who he stole it from as long as we all can have a laugh!!!
@FootballisCity you won't say that if you were the one that comes up with the joke. Jokes are intellectual properties, you can't just steal stuff and claim as your own.
Apart from your own team which other team are you excited to see in the PL next season.

For me, Everton should be interesting since I am excited to see how Marco Silva does there. They have a decent squad as well.
Most excited to see West Ham, spent well and i wish Pellegrini the best.
Also excited to see liverpool, by far have the best squad and coach, can they be better than that amazing season last year?

Actually excited to see if Emery can impose more discipline and dynamism to arsenal and if sarri can get chelsea to shed their logical objective based approach to a more expressive one.
+1
Everton and West Ham for me.

Everton have spent a LOT of money in two years so there will be a huge amount of expectation to translate that money spent into success. The Richarlison move is so ludicrously expensive that I kind of want to see them falter.

West Ham - have also spent big but I like Pellegrini and thought he was undermined at City so hoping he does well. I'm also keen to see if Wilshere can put in some performances for them, they could be a surprise package this season.
Excited to see Liverpool
- Keita, Fabinho, Alisson have plugged some serious gaps across the spine of the team and they are going to be close to unstoppable if Klopp gets it right. Mofo has chosen them really well

Excited to see Chelsea's Sarriball
- Kante and Jorginho together in the midfield are going to be a force to reckon with. Pep himself said that Napoli was his favorite team to watch last year and loved the way they press and attack to create beautiful football. Sarri is said to bring that 'joy to play' attitude in his team and that's the injection the Chelsea team really needs
+5
I didn't watch Napoli last year but there's been a lot of hype with how Sarri plays. Kante and Jorginho sounds like an excellent midfield partnership, so I am interested to see how that works.

TBH there are a lot of quality managers in the league now as you mentioned, and a lot of teams did good business this summer. I hope the title is more heavily contested this season.
I predict Chelsea, Liverpool and city for title challenge. Can’t underestimate Chelsea with the new manager bounce
Gotta be the Wolves. Everyone in this league is in for a surprise. We played them last season in the league cup and they put on a hell of a performance against us. Since then, they've only been getting better and better with their signings. Won't be shocked if they finish in the top 10 this season, maybe even top 7.
Chelsea. It will be really interesting to see how they bounce back under Sarri.
Not really excited to be considering other teams challenging for the title, but Spurs. Will they get over the hump and give a real push? Seems like it could be a last hurrah with the current crop. Kane will do his part; can Eriksen, Son, and Alli do theirs, and to a degree that will be enough?
Good thing for Spurs is that Aurier, Moura and Lamela all having proper pre-season, even Llorente.
I think the pressure is on Liverpool to keep it up and even further improve. Same with Man United with high expectations.
I'm on the fence about how well a new Arsenal and a new Chelsea will do. Man City favourites for another title.
