To look soley at the last twelve months spend of city and Liverpool is subjective in itself. And why are city in trouble with the football authorities?
All clubs buy and sell, it business. And a lot of clubs pay over the odds for some bang average players which isn't the fault of the selling club?

That's the point - one particularly irate Scouser was saying, City needed 2 full backs & spent £mills. Liverpool needed 2 & spent £8mill so Klopp was better - completely neglecting to mention the net figures that both had spent last summer.
Ultimately though City had a great side in 17/18 & didn't spend much last summer. Liverpool had a very good side in 17/18 & spent a fortune last summer to make themselves great.
They've both spent a freaking fortune whether that money came from oil barons, TV deals, sponsorship, state money or player sales
But, as Fulham amongst others showed, just chucking a load of money at a team doesn't guarantee results & both are clearly excellent man manager's & tacticians too

And my point about how much Palace & Bournemouth pay for Liverpool players wasn't a dig at Liverpool - if they can get that then fair enough but it staggers me how both clubs seem so gullible when it comes to forking out for Liverpool players. I mean £19mill for Solanke who barely used to make Liverpool's squad & who's top flight scoring record at present is 31 games (24 sub - not sure if that means 24 of those 31 appearances have come as a sub or whether its 31 + 24 but anyway) & 1 goal!!!

I like watching match of the day, I also enjoy the champions league, England games and the odd local league. I am also looking forward to the women’s World Cup this summer.

I was taking you comments seriously until your last sentence dnr.
I'll not say much for fear of offending any female fans, but womans football is shite, and if we didn't live in such a namby pamby lefty politically correct era the media coverage would be virtually zero where it should be.



Tis true horc that the standard of women's football ain't the best but it does have its advantages. Would you rather look at Steph Houghton or Stan Laurel lookalike Phil Jones?.

You do them a disservice lads, embrace the summer football tournament and enjoy it, if you proclaim to watch non league standard the the women’s football is at least as good as that. I will enjoy it anyway,

It isn't patch on non league football, I would put it on a level of lads Under 15's football at the very best.
I did hear that prior to the last major tournament England Ladies had a warm up match against England Schoolboys, and the margin of victory to the lads was that great the press were banned from reporting on it and it was kept under wraps.
Needless to say, I won't be watching much, if any of it.

Struggle to watch any football on TV. That's for all the Utd, Robberpool and Arsenal fans and all the others who say 'we' but never ever go to live games.
