http://www.mcfc.com/The-Club/Club-History
Club founded in 1880, officially manchester city in 1894. Was first team in manchester to win a major trophy in 1904.
FA cups: 1904, 1934, 1956, 1969, 2011. (runner up 5 times, once since Oil $)
League Champions: 1937, 1968, 2012, 2014 (runner up 4 times, once since Oil $)
League cups: 1970, 1976, 2014

Been a lot of talk about "been four" and club history and I wanted to address the issue. First and foremost there is no PERMANENT big four. Only that years big teams. The league is constantly changing, there is no "big four" only the top four placed teams. As a city fan, especially in the U.S. when asked what club and sport, I am met with, "Bandwagon fan" or "oh did you start watching in 2008? Hahaha." or "what actual reason could you have to support them?"As if my reason is illegitimate without hearing my answer. What does it matter why I support a club? Is ones reason for supporting a club a measure of how valid their support is? The best part is the most of these comments will come from Americans who are United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea fans. In discussions about teams I will always here city are just oil success, just buy al the talent, and they HAVE NO HISTORY. In response I have provided this link and some mentionable anecdotes from Our history.

I urge you to look up the history of all the clubs in the EPL you will notice that United Liverpool and Arsenal have not won every trophy ever. You will note that Aston Villa have been league champions the 5th most in history. Chelsea won trophies prior to Abramovich. United have won the league 20 times, only 7 prior to 1992. It wasn't until the 90's and SAF that United became a dominant team. Liverpool have won 18 times, 11 of which occur in the 70's and 80's and haven't won one since. Arsenal won 5 of their 13 league titles in the 30's... and have only won 1 major trophy (FA cup from 2004- 2014)

Every club has a history that should be respected, however, that history has nothing to do with the current dynamic and therefore is irrelevant to discussion of the current league. Next time you want to say to someone, "Your club is small and has no history." Put yourself in the 1950's or the 1930's and think about whether you would be laughed at or not.

(A Note to Mods): My intention is not ruffle feathers just thought this was an effective approach. The point being, "Cool you have a lot of trophies! But did you win any this year?"
+1
If it's EPL City for life the only team to keep going for a goals and got life back in the league. The haters will always be there cause no one wants a new fresh approach team to win cause ppl are idiots who don't want change. Also best part city beat the heck out of United and Arsenal. I will never forget how the arsenal haters were making fun of the city team after winning only to cry at the end of the season cause city won in the last minute. They need some more reinforcement in the midfield but best to watch no doubt about it.

Oh boy... here we go
Well said Khessler...But get ready to take some hate now:)
I hate coming on to any epl page after a team wins the league. All sets of fans become very egotistical.
+1
Especially those Burnley fans, the bastards. Why can't they please just shut the f**k up?
+8
FFS. Another obvious trolling attempt by a Chelsea plastic. Get outta here!
+1
Not sure if serious or sarcastic
LOL @Joey
Zilch is that aimed at me? cause im serious.
+1
Cheap shots on this page will be deleted. You all know the rules, please just follow them.
Chelsea, congrats on winning the title well deserved.
+2
It is not decided for us yet. Wait until it is official before u mock us.
My money is on Liverpool to make it...I'm confident right now
Made a few edits. Keep the cheap shots out of your posts please, both of you.
wtf happened here
As I said, I removed the obvious cheap shots from both of you.

KingLucas, your original comment was clearly baiting. Sure, you added "jk lol". But it was no different in nature than Bazinga's first comment (the one you said was "mocking"). So, if you saw his as mocking in nature (and I agree with you, it was), then yours was too.

As a result, I deleted all of the trolling/flamebaiting parts of your posts.
+2
This is much more cordial, nice work KGB.

KingLucas, stop taking the bait man.
Us football fans always seem to regress from humans to cavemen whenever someone wins a title ;)
If Noel Gallagher was a footytube member he would post something like "Envy out there do you know what I mean? Chelsea were f*****g great so they f*****g won it"

Total Premier League title wins(since 1992)

13: Manchester United
4: Chelsea
3: Arsenal
2: Manchester city
1: Blackburn Rovers

United are far ahead and the other big 3 will go neck to neck for next decade or two...finally the big 4 are back in top-4 and its going to be a good battle in coming seasons.
Hopefully the changes on the very top will be more frequent than in the 90s, at least form a neutral perspective with just football in mind. As much as I didn't like seeing Southhampton above us early in the season it was really nice to see them do so well for such a long period this year. Though very unlikely hoping for even more significant pushes for the top from them. But if they keep producing the talent at the rate they have over the past decade and if they manage to keep it, you never know. That organization has a lot of potential.
+1
If Saints can hold on to their best players they can push for top4...but like last season there will be few going out again (Clyne, Schniderline)....Spurs can be back in the hunt if they can hold-on to Kane , Eriksen etc......cant think of anyone else pushing the top4
wait why is it only since 1992? never mind i didnt see that u support chelsea. peace
+7
^sorry grandpa..My bad since i always lived in present.

Note: Its called premier league since 1992 incase you dint know
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premier_League

Finally the big four are back in the top 4? Sounds somewhat wrong to be FINALLY BACK considering that especially city hasn't been around the top for long.
+4
Guys, stop fighting on stupid topics.

Tomikato(Staff)
THanks!
Didn't sound like a fight to me but you are right that it is a pointless topic.

cheers

Why is his thread still up. Its a blatant troll attempt, should be deleted if the Mods don't want any stupid 'fighting' over it. (Note: not telling the Mods what to do, only acknowledging you can't have it both ways)
+1
Mods - This thread is a fact as is the thread slightly below.....If people cant take facts they should probably avoid the page.

I have clearly mentioned PL (since 1992) at the top
@Lkerun, Colinmc - I personally recognize that Pool are a bigger club than City and the top 4 discussion is possibly flawed (and even mildly ignorant).

However, I don't think Bazinga meant it that way (leaving out pool on purpose or even leaving out Arsenal achievements pre 1992). No need to be rude to him just because he is a Chelsea fan. That's all i am saying.

@Bazinga - let's not say things like 'top 4' and such. No need for such comparisons. Regardless of Chelsea's prowess and City's recent wins we are nouveau in terms of last few decades. Best mention 'last 10 years' if it is necessary to make such comparisons.
^I think he did mean it on purpose, because he makes ridiculous thinly veiled troll attempts in similar fashion all the time. That is kind of his thing from what I can tell. I'll give him some trolling credit, he's good at going just up to the line.

Again, your call on what to do with this neat little diddy this time around. I personally won't flame him for it, but I think this is a bait post.
colilmac - really want me to dig the troll attempts by pool fans on champaign etc.??? be a sport and take the facts.. really hope you had shown same awareness to stop fights then
^So you admit you are trolling and fanning the flames then?

Right, so...

ScouserDan, Xgooner4everX, and Bazinga,
See where Tomikato made it quite clear to cut it out? Then see where you kept going? Not a good idea. This is a final warning for all three of you, please don't so obviously ignore site rules or mod instructions again.
lol, everybody relax. I don't think bazinga meant the initial post to be cruel to anyone. it isn't bragging to show that chelsea are down 13-4 in anything.

everybody here knows liverpool is a big club and has been performing well again recently. nobody would be excited to play them next if their team needed 3 points, that is respect.

chelsea won the pl title this year, the teams listed above are those who have won the last 23 and that's it.

people just like labeling a "big 4" because there are 4 pl spots open probably. in reality there are usually about 7 teams challenging for those spots, and if you wanted to, you could derive a points system of 1 pt for 1st, 2 for 2nd etc over any time period to more accurately show how teams have been finishing.

chelsea had a great year, so did many other teams and I'm sure next season will bring more competition for chelsea.
+1
From 1888-1915, total first division titles (teams with multiple):

Aston Villa (6)
Sunderland (4)
Blackburn Rovers (2)
Everton (2)
Liverpool (2)
Manchester United (2)
The Wednesday (2)
Preston North End (2)

Wow, looks like the top 3 might be getting together sometime soon.... in the Championship.
^lel

Congrats to Chelsea on winning the EPL. They were the most consistent team throughout the competition so they throughly deserved it. Well done

yes :'(
we are the most consistent tema in prem this year , congrats

LOL . newcastle no good bro. Support Sunderland bro
On the other hand management is absolute s**t. Why on earth would Newcastle let go of Santon (class versatile defender) and yanga mbiwa go?? Just poor
:3 , why we let martines , luque , owen , robert , duff , rozenhal , barton , nolan , carrol , ..... cant count

man they will sell , tiote , cissie , and few else next season ,
I've Stopped questioning these decisions now. The club is in total disarray and nothing is being done about it. We have a below average squad with the exception of one or two players, no real manager and an owner who makes incredibly questionable decisions year in year out. It pains me to say it but the club is support is an absolute joke and everyone knows it.
@Booba - so which club are you supporting next?
hull city -,-
or bournemouth
The tigers are not out of the woods yet bro. They have to face United, Arsenal and Spurs. Be careful whom you choose :D
