    Why so aggresive? Big Sam is a better manager than Arteta

    No, they don't. They have the two European Cups, but very little domestically. City has six leagues, six FA Cups and six league cups.

    Sp**s are bigger than Dortmund I’m afraid. I’m a very strong poster.

    Most of which were purchased, pound for pound you still rank them (Forest) higher than City if you were to rank the big English clubs.

    Anyway, off topic this. Happy to discuss it elsewhere.

    Depends on how you look at it. Certainly from a financial aspect, Sp**s have the edge. They might also be a more attractive option for some players because they're in London and play in the Premier League. But historically Dortmund has been the far more successful club. They probably have a better opportunity for future success in their league as well. So it just depends on what you mean by "bigger." It's a very subjective term.

    You are either trolling or you have some bad information. Dortmund is a bigger club with a richer history than what Sp**s can even dream of, which player from Dortmund are the Sp**s have signed? Trippier left the smallest club in North London for Atletico Madrid and i would say Dortmund is a bigger club than Atletico is. Anyway, enough of this discussion which are 101% OT.

    Whom would be your top 5 English teams, based on all their history’s compared?

    Wouldn’t mind continuing this convo elsewhere if Mods want to move it, seems just the thing for a nostalgia merchant!

    Liverpool, Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton. City will have surpassed Everton for many.

    Top 10 is more interesting because you then have Sp**s, Leeds, Forest, City etc.

    Not much support for Arteta outside of this forum.

    Shame we only have two European trophies, really holds us back compared to United and Liverpool.

    Utd and Liverpool also have sustained periods of dominance in league football, we’ve never done that. Ferguson was winning titles every years basically until City and Chelsea turned up with their money.

    Our history is about scattered titles, here and there. Unless you go pre war.
  14. say yes

    say yes To Sweet Soulful House Music

    Not quite sure that’s true. We completely dominated English football in the 1930s, it’s just before any of us here were alive.

    It’s still part of our history, even if it pre- (and was cut short by) WW2.

    GoodEbening To Everyone Except Arteta

    I suspect these people are ****ing Sp**s supporter having a laugh here. Why the **** would anyone be so dense to want a zero experienced scrub over seasoned coaches like Ancelotti who have won multiple trophies. Or maybe they really are ****ing simpletons. "Oh Pep says his buddy is good so Arteta must be a ****ing godsend" People in this forum are ****ing ridiculous I swear. I need to stay out of this place to keep myself sane. No point getting pissed with a bunch of Spud trolls and simpletons.

    This is why I am annoyed to no end that we didn’t win the Champions League/European Cup, especially since ****ing Chelski have one :mad:

    We should have won at least one at our peak, 2006 man...

  20. say yes

    say yes To Sweet Soulful House Music

    Liverpool, United and Arsenal are the big three historic clubs. Have won close to 40% of all the domestic trophies between them, which is mad. And there are tons of other amazing achievements in there (the invincibles, numerous double winners, United’s 1999 team etc). Three icons of English football.

    Unfortunately, we’re definitely the smallest of that group, and have never won the ultimate prize in Europe. So there’s not a chance we’re the number 1 club, but our history is such that one dominating decade could change that - which is something no club outside that trio can say.

    4 and 5 are hard however. Historically, you’d be looking at clubs like Everton and Villa, with Sp**s not far off. However, the oil clubs have really upended everything. Their trophy cabinets are now comparable to anyone outside the top three, and with their dodgy owners they’ve achieved world fame and financial success. If you were asking historically, I’d still plump for Everton and Villa over them. But there’s sadly no doubt that City/Chelsea are the ‘bigger’ clubs today.
