Bow your heads and pay homage to the achievements of:

MANCHESTER CITY- RECORD BREAKERS 2017/2018

Biggest title-winning margin: City finished 19 points clear of closest rivals United to beat the record set by Sir Alex Ferguson's side when they won the 1999-2000 season by 18 points from Arsenal. Achieved.

Earliest title success: United's 2000-01 team held the record, winning the league with five games remaining. City have now equalled that record after United's shock home defeat to West Brom. Achieved.

Most points: City became the first team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points thanks to Gabriel Jesus' injury-time winner on the final day of the season. The previous Premier League record of 95 was set by Jose Mourinho's Chelsea in 2004-05. Achieved.

Most goals: City finished the season with 106, scoring at a rate of more than 2.8 per match. Carlo Ancelotti was in charge at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea set the previous record of 103 goals in 2009-10. Achieved.

Most wins: Antonio Conte's Chelsea record of 30 wins lasted only one season, with City bringing up their 32nd victory of the season at Southampton on the final day. Achieved.

Most consecutive wins: Arsenal (2001-02) and Chelsea (2016-17) held the record with 13 straight victories, but City equalled that with their derby-day win at Old Trafford on Dec. 10 before extending the record to 18 matches. Achieved.

Most away wins: City recorded their 16th away win of the season at St Mary's on the final day of the season to surpass Chelsea under Mourinho, who collected 15 victories from 19 matches in 2004-05. Achieved.

Best goal difference: Chelsea won the 2009-10 title on the final game of the season, when an 8-0 victory over Wigan Athletic gave them a goal difference of +71. City beat that with a final goal difference of +79. Achieved.

Highest average possession: Possession statistics only go back as far as the 2010-11 season. Guardiola's City set the record last season with an average 64 percent possession per match, but they smashed that this season with their average at around 71 percent. Achieved.

Most passes: Again the statistics only go back to 2010-11 and again Guardiola's City set the record during his first season with 20,506 completed passes at an average 84 percent completion. They amassed 28,242 passes this season. Achieved.

Most consecutive Premier League Manager of the Month awards: Guardiola equalled Conte's record of three successive manager-of-the-month awards after a perfect November and then went one better when he won the award for a fourth time in December. Achieved.

EDIT: Pep Guardiola, awarded manager of the year 2017/2018. Achieved.

How many times has the druggie manager of siddy won the Premiership?

Never forget that Pep was banned for taking drugs when he was a player.

Posted by: fireplace6899 (inactive) Report abuse
. While playing in Italy, he served a four-month ban for a positive drug test,

Posted by: roylew (2841) Report abuse

Now you are scraping the bottom of the counter argument barrell there Chatty.

No matter how many insults you fling at the CHAMPIONS it won't deflect from the fact that they are still:

Posted by: fireplace6899 (inactive) Report abuse
Not changed have you Balloon Head, still calling the ill.

It might come your turn soon.

Posted by: 0 years (2882) Report abuse
I understand why you say that FP but I suspect his comment had nothing to do with Ferguson's current plight.

Posted by: chatty (6009)  Report abuse
So why bring it up at all then, it's been 5 years since he retired and so he could no bearing on Citys title win whatsoever, it couldn't have been further from 'straight to the point'

Posted by: Tiger cat (52) Report abuse
Typical of city fans going over the top for a prem league title,heaven help these boards if city actually do win a double(proper one), a treble,( proper one), they thought it was going to be easy This year and win all four ,

Posted by: laughing gravy (3716) Report abuse
going over the top? singing twenty times when you've not won it for 5 years is going over the top..and how long is it since you won the treble? 19 years yet you still bang on about it

THATS GOING OVER THE TOP TRAFFORD FANS= NEW SCOUSERS

Welcome back FP,

"it couldn't have been further from 'straight to the point'"

Nonsense, he had a point to make and was direct, concise and breviloquent.


" Typical of city fans going over the top for a prem league title,heaven help these boards if city actually do win a double(proper one), a treble,( proper one), they thought it was going to be easy This year and win all four"

Another empty bitter and misinformed comment from a "know nowt" with nothing constructive to contribute).

BTW, did I mention that the CHAMPIONS 2017/2018 are CENTURION RECORD BREAKERS?

Posted by: chatty (6009)  Report abuse
He's point was ancient 'istree' and nothing to do with the thread.

And so open to misinterpretation you had to back him up.
Are you now a fulltime apologist for the 'sick man' or is it just on an ad hoc basis, you certainly do a lot of it these days?
