    If you are so emotional over me stating the facts, namely the gulf between the two clubs and the trophies won, then maybe you shouldn't support such a shit team like Manchester's only causing you stress, and making you look very, very, very stupid. Go fuck yourself.

  • JB7815
    JB7815 6 years ago

    Um, what are you trying to achieve with your comment? A 30 second video clip comes up on my news feed, so I watch, because I'm actually old enough to remember Platt playing for England. To answer your question, I'm not confused regarding my sexuality. (I seem to remember fucking your mother approximately 9 months before you were born. She was shit btw.) Also "yet your don't win every year" makes no sense, and is a display of your total lack of intelligence...

  • JB7815
    JB7815 6 years ago

    Yep. Well done City. Only 3 more Champions League's, 2 World Club Cup's, 16 more League Titles, 6 more FA Cups, and 2 more league Cups. Keep going though. If it takes 500 mil of spending on players to get 2 trophies, then another 14.5 billion to get the other 29, and be on level terms with United...

  • JB7815
    JB7815 6 years ago

    Giggs, Scholes, P Neville, G Neville, Beckham, Cleverly, Welbeck, - Free. Irwin, Solskjaer, Schmeichel, - A combined £3mil. As much as United have bought expensively, of course they have, but you can't just spew facts that suit your argument. Veron, RVN, Carrick, RVP etc have all been expensive signings, as were Keane and Cantona in their day. But City have never had any decent English players from youth ranks, nor do they attempt to develop players with potential...the overhead was awesome tho.

    Jealous? That's just my opinion. Rooney had hmm, what two half decent games in the group stages in 2004. Repeat - Group stages. 2011, poor keeping and he did nothing for the rest of the game, what a star!! Added to which, i always found swearing to be the way to belittle someone and convince yourself that you're right too, so well done there. Feels good doesn't it? Let me know when your 15th birthday is and i'll send you a card, maybe i'll put in some pointers concerning punctuation for you.

  • edgeways27
    edgeways27 6 years ago

    oh and to all those going on about Rooney's shinned effort and the whole "its not a proper game" thing, Rooney, has never, and will never, do anything remotely good for England, Platt did. Platt's goal against Belgium in 1990 is the the epitomy of producing absolute class when it really really matters. Rooney is the car key of "big game" football...goes missing whenever you really need him. Not something that could have been said of Platt or any of that 1990 England team at their peaks

  • wkangaroo
    wkangaroo 6 years ago

    Ppffft, Beckham and G. Neville were both born in 1975 and both joined Man U in 1991 - so both were 16. Scholes was born in 1974 and joined Man U in 1991, he was 17. I'm not sure what's the point of lying about this shit. Why are you lying?

    Yeah but how old were they when we got Theo, Ox, and Gibbs? They certainly were not the players they are today if AW didn't believe in em. Oh ok, we got Jack, Ramsey, and a handful of other young players from all over produced by us, so aint no ones got shit in their mouth but u buddy. Man city dont produce shite so plz dont act like you guys are Barca its laughable, you buy all your players with mega bucks. big deal, anyone can do that, nothing special there

    Are you talking to me?? You clearly have no clue what I was referring to. Im talking to this idiot where he keeps saying that Becks, Scholes, Giggs, Butt, Nevilles were not from the UTD youth academy.
    As from players from Clubs youth academies now - Because of the nature of the competition it is unfortunate that most of the players from the youth academies do not get a chance to play - this is true for most of the top clubs in England - Man Utd, Citeh, Chelsea, Arsenal, Poolscum and even Spurs

  • blakefish80
    blakefish80 6 years ago

    Uniteds Vaunted youth system produced one fantastic crop of very gifted players. Beckham, Scholes, Giggs, Butt, Nevilles. Since then i cannot think of anything even close to their standard that have been produced by your Acadamy. Fletcher was a good player, but only good, not great. Wellbeck has potential and so does Cleverly. But they are the sum total of nearly 20 years since the last group.
    Smalling, Jones, Da Silva twins, De Gea, Rooney, all from elsewhere. None can be claimed as your own.

    David Beckham wiki - Beckham was offered a schoolboy contract at 14
    Paul Scholes wiki - he began training with Utd at 14.
    Ryan Giggs profile on manutd. com - born 1973, joined Utd in 1987, ergo 14 years of age.

United buys all of their players just like we do. I can garentee that you will see many more young players comeing up through the ranks at city and staying at city.

    Even mid to lower table teams would rather player weaker teams in the FA Cup as the financial rewards of being in the Premiership are far greater than a decent cup run.
    Don't get me wrong, it's nice to win domestic cups, but don't make the mistake of thinking that a League Cup trophy and a finish outside the European spots suggests a decent season. Maybe a few seasons or so, but sadly not now.

  • Zissou10
    Zissou10 6 years ago

    Not at all! We played reserve players because it was the least important of the four competitions we were in. Doing so helped us comete for every league title and have decent runs in the CL and FA Cup.
    The FA Cup is slowly becoming as less appealing as the League Cup because of money, simple as. United or City would rather risk going out of the cup early if it gave them a better chance at winning the league and/or securing a top four (CL) finish. Same goes for Arsenal and Chelsea.

    In terms of providing talent for the national team, Aston villa are the most successful in the country, not city. The way i see it, besides richards, citys youth system hasn't produced any real stars who can/have competed at the top flight of football, the majority are distinctly average players. (basing my judgement on only recent years - 1990 onwards)

    No. You're talking shit. Let's take a trip back to last season, Manchester city win the Fa cup and united win the premier league. Now for the best bit, go and do some research on google or youtube and look up some videos of the parades for both teams. Manchester streets were packed for our parade and yours was embarrasingly quiet.
    You're telling me that you filled up 60k stadiums for training sessions? fair play if you have but i doubt it and ofcourse you're going to have more watching atm.
