Congratulations to Manchester City

Congratulations to Manchester City

Yesterday was probably the greatest finish to a season in the Premier League era.

Two teams fighting to avoid relegation, while at the opposite end we had two teams going for the title. Having witnessed an unbelievable game of lows and highs at The Etihad, it must be said that Manchester City have won the title on merit.

Of course, there will be the usual talk about 'buying' the title and people won't stop pointing at the huge bill they've ran up in doing so. And of course, don't forget the regular jibes about 'history'. Having been subjected to the same treatment over the past few years, I'll just say this to the City fans - 'Get a thick skin and enjoy your win'. And be ready for an influx of johnny-come-lately's hopping onto the bandwagon.

As a Chelsea supporter it felt a bit strange not be involved in the thick of the action at this time of year, but then, we gave up the ghost a long time ago. This time next season, however, you can be sure we'll be having a right go at it. And knowing that there's another worthy opponent only makes it more challenging for us and for everyone else. That can only be good for the English game as a whole.

In the end, I'd like to congratulate Manchester City for their title success. Your long-suffering supporters deserve every bit of it.

See you next season.

Agree with you mate. As much as despise some of the mercenaries like Lescott,yaya toure and Nasri, some of their players really are a credit to the premiership (Hart, Kompany, Aguero...) Perhaps some of those greedy disloyal ********s don't deserve to win the title but like you said, their "long-suffering" city supporters deserve this victory.

Congrats to Citeh they deserve it. This win marks a new era of domination which will encourage more competition in the EPL. Looks like we‘re going to have to work harder next season to be on top. Dont you just love the EPL?

@drt1977 & austriablue congratulating Citeh doesnt make up less a Chelsea fan, its more on a tip of the hat type acknowledgment. Good ol sportsmanship just as some Spuds were congratulating us after the FA cup win or as ol rednose gave them their props.

@fabiofognini I dont know why you are slagging Yaya(didnt get proper game time at barca) Nasri(clearly know that if he stay with AFC he wont win anything at all) Lescott..All their decision is vindicated somehow even though they get more money than the previous clubs..Its not their fault..

I add my congrats to others to city...they were certainly the best team over the season stretch and it would have been a travesty for ManU to win again after City owned them twice and the number of times refs including especially Howard Webb had to lend ManU a helping hand. The emergence of city also makes it clear tnat the BPL is without a shadow of a doubt the most competitive club league in the world..this is not the duopoly of La Liga..come next season there will be 4-5 teams with a realistic chance of winning the title at the start..we have to make sure we are included in that number by what we do on May 19 and during this summer transfer window. I cannot but add, the looks on the faces of the ManU fans, players and best of all SAF when they thought #20 was in the bag then it was snatched from them in "fergie time" that is just priceless!!!

it was priceless to see so many glory hunting manurerers crying on my tv. priceless indeed! the carlsberg ad springs to mind. way back city used to be my 2nd favourite team. it was really because i HATE manure so much. not so much since i grew up and don't have a 2nd favourite team anymore. well done city! congrats. you deserve it.

Instead of congratulating City we need to figure out how we will be challenging for the title next season. 25 points off the winners is really bad for a club like us! its true, Silva, Aquero,Tevez and even Modric were all on our radar before they came to the Premier League...just goes to show huh!
