In all my saves I played on this years FM their are things that happen 100%. How many times I saw Pep Guardiola comming to Manchester (UTD ore City), what results in Jurgen Klopp going to Dortmund. Like you mentioned before City is never a real ChampionsLeague contender. First year most off the time Chelsea is absolutely beastly. 9/10 West Ham is send to ChampionsShip. Daniël Sturridge can't play often in first season because of injury but I always receive a Arsenal bid from +- 60M at the start of 2nd season. These are just a few things that happen all the time if I start a new save.Mancini always goes back on mine!
