Deliciously ironic that the sheikh has poured hundreds of millions into City in the hopes of competing in and winning Champions League ties against the likes of Barcelona, yet the one City player to cover himself in glory over these two legs was the only player remaining in the squad who was brought in before City was overwhelmed by foreign takeovers/investment.

Still think Mangala could pan out after a shaky start.. not sure where they stand with Boyata whether or not they're just loaning til they can offload?

Bony is a piece to build around but still felt like an impulsive buy. I like Navas as a player but I've never really thought he's complimented their style as well as Nasri - ends up occupying the same space that Zabaletta likes to run into.

Champions League, where the Portugese put up a better fight than the English.

How many years until FA implements a winter break for the PL.. could just be used as scapegoat but 2 of 3 years w/o English team in quarterfinals is pretty crazy considering the amount of money spent by the teams regularly in Pot 1. City/Liverpool were bound to have rough go's given their group seeding.

Anyway, moving on to more important news than Allegri losing the first of many matches this season: Fiorentina signed Argentine defender Jose Basanta today. Had my eye on him at the World Cup as he was being linked even back then, and I was pretty impressed. Hopefully he has a Gonzalo Rodriguez type of impact. Or just stick him at left back so I never have to see Manuel Pasqual again.

Eh, I mean Liverpool were given a gift of a draw at least in terms of qualification prospects with Basel being their Pot 2 team, they failed because they sucked through the first half of this season, not because of what they were seeded.

I'm tend to think football works in cycles. Italian teams were unbeatable through the 90s, English teams in the mid 2000s, now it's German and Spanish.

We'll be back, just needs a tweaking of the methods. There is too much money to consistently underachieve.

It's definitely cyclical, as you mention, so I'm just wondering that given the money invested, does there come a point in time (possibly when UEFA coefficient in jeopardy - wouldn't be for a few more underachieving years) when the FA caves to the pressure of the winter break? Feels like managers have been calling for that for a while now (mostly the big clubs, but on some levels it could be more beneficial to the small ones with a smaller squad to try and rotate)
