They’re a sand grab.Haaland is on fraud watch imo. 2 major finals and he did nothing in them. He did nothing in the semifinals aswell. But of course 52 goals is a great achievement but 8 of those goals was penalty goals and 3 was scored against a team from a lower division. He is not the best player in the world. And City is definitely not the best team ever.
They won‘t ever be viewed as a great team in anyone’s heart - which is what matters - even in the context of English greats like Fergie‘s treble winners, the Anfield greats of the 70’s and eighties, Clough’s best work at Forest or the invicibles. Because none of it is “real”. To use an analogy it’s all just expensive CGI.
Same for Roman’s financial doping.
Ultimately, history will I believe and ultimately view this period as a sad footnote.
