@476. And which competition did we finish runner-up in that season? The EFL Cup. Who beat us? Chelsea. Who cares/remembers? No one. It's the mickey mouse cup for christ's sake.
@474. Posted by 1954 ShenanigansStrange how you can count back to 2006 but not 2005 and the trophy everyone wants!Yes LFC have FIVE....How many do City, Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Man Utd have?Between them four!Thank you and goodnight!
Seems some of the chinese are getting hot under the collar.
Can't fathom why the BBC are saying Utd have overhauled LFC on the trophy count as both have 41 major trophies.--ASsk LFC, they changed their own twitter about that. You said in '472 Oh and winning the EFL is nice to win, I guess it is when it's ALL you've won since 2006
Just turned the BBC sport website on , cant believe this forum is still running , oh wait a minute yes i can it is the BBC website after all sorry i meant MUBBC website , well done to all the southern journalists editors and reporters at the Beeb who cant live without a man u report every day i wonder why so many fans and clubs despise man u .
The EFL, League Cup, Carling Cup, Milk Cup, Durex snug-fit cherry flavour Trophy is nice to win but if you have the most expensively assembled squad in history and debts of £400m I think you would expect a better return!
Can't fathom why the BBC are saying Utd have overhauled LFC on the trophy count as both have 41 major trophies.Community Shield doesn't count and European Super Cups and World Club trophies can't count as proper tournaments. If they did they would still be both level on 44 trophies.I demand a recount!
Greetings, Shenny!So, according to the BBC, success for City in the EFL signalled diminishing achievement, a mere crumb of consolation for their fading EPL prospects.But for United, success in the same competition just a year later heralds a new dawn of success.Got it now? It's not a very profound observation but clearly lays bare the BBC's obsessive love for United and (God forbid), Jose!
@462 ShenanigansDo pay attention, old bean ( I assume your first match at Old Trafford was in 1954? My first at Maine Road was ten years later so you have the edge in experience). I made no such comparisons between the EFL and the FA Cup!My point is about the stark contrast in treatment that the BBC gave to City's success in the EFL LAST season compared to United THIS season.Head up!
Tho I support ManU i'm just slightly worried the wheels will fall off at some point. The decision to put out a full str squad midweek when we were 3-0 in front was crazy- leading to some injuries and a tired display on Sunday.The rest of the season is going to take a massive effort. The Europa League is the biggest problem but unfortunately they have to take it serious as top4 is not certain.
@462 1954 ShagnanigansSo on your logic FA Cup is more successful than League Cup...So why sack Van Gaal...?@463 Jolly Bodged ItYou totally missed the point... but at least you can count to a very high number...And don't confuse hate with insentience... Or average football with good marketing for that matter...
464. Posted by I HATE MUFC LFC on 1 hour agoI just heard they have renamed the EFL cup --For the best part of 40 hours you've quite literally invented new ways to write the same thing. Do you not have any hobbies? Or is your hobby going down to your local Sports Direct and shouting "small club wins small trophy" at the replica kits?
@464 Don't forget to pull on a heavy jersey or a fleece, you're sure to get cold living in Uniteds shodow. Think of the money you save on sunglasses and sunscreen tho.
I just heard they have renamed the EFL cup It's now called the manu diddly widdly cup because mou just loves to win it
@459 - And no doubt you sit at home wondering why no one likes the average Man Utd fan...There are an estimated 659 million United fans worldwide, we don't need anyone else to like us. Thanks for all the hate tho, we know you are worried again.Hated, Adored - Never Ignored. GGMU.
461So for all your attempts to make it look the opposite, City only won the same amount as United but with the logic you gave our FA Cup beats your EFL cup. Am I right?There's no prizes for top four or CL semi's, not even when you're City.
Remember the reaction on the MUBBC last year as City started to lose impetus in February, having been joint top with Leicester on Jan.1st? Their subsequent winning of the EFL Cup was seen, if anything, as a pathetic consolation for underachievement in the Premiership! City went on to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League and gain 4th spot in the EPL, pipping United. Go figure, Phil.
