I have been playing FM for years, Man City were always my team of choice, now because they are one of the wealthies teams in the game, people get angry, saying its '' no challenge''
Man City fans i need your opinions......

It isn't really a challenge though is it. You can design any tactic you want and all you need to do is sign the right players.

It's not like a Tottenham save where players are good but money is limited, or a Liverpool save or an Everton save.

It's like i wouldn't go with Chelsea because of their wealth or United because of their squad.

Same imo goes for Real and Barca.

To each their own though

I was reading a thread about Man City yesterday and there was alot of people getting annoyed on it. I think a big annoyance that people hgave on this forum is that there are a million threads about Man City on here and it's repetitive. Personally It doesn't bother me so much cause everyone supports team's and choses to manage whoever they want.

Agree 100% It's not the team or the fact they have money. It's the 1000's of threads saying the same **** and it's always n00by 2 post wonders. I'm sure there was even one saying 'help i got man city religated who should i sign'

how about get a mind of your own and play the game?? lol

Not being funny but where did city finish last season with all there millions which to me says you have still got to manage the players and tactics right and if that is your team then why not play with them i dont think its the same playing with a team you dont support i love playing with my team everton over any other as that is the club i support so i dont hate anybody playing with city in fact i dont hate anybody although i might be a bit envious of the real city and might hate them if they nick lescott off us lol!!!

I don't read the same as you. The post is wrong, but I think it goes a different way (totally in the surface, not so much in the depth, so racism is still valid accusation to that post):

First place: Bad grammar and punctuation and an example why those are important. I don't read "The owners are arab. They (arabs) fund taliban". I read "The owners are arab. They (the owners) fund taliban". I also read arab as "from Saudi Arabia" not "arab race", using the second word of the country name instead of the first to make the word. I'm spanish, so perhaps that doesn't has the hold on real common usage of words in english that I'm thinking it may.

Second place: You surely are aware of informations running around saying that arab richmen (I don't know the right english word and I don't want to try to anglizice the spanish word) fund AQ and taliban. Those media, about which credibility I'll not ellaborate much, only that while a few I consider bullshitters, other aren't, but in the matter are under suspicion due to certain ideological bias, and they tend to express the idea that perhaps the main funders of AQ & taliban are SOME (one? two? three?) saudi richmen in a way that is way too close to make the reader get the idea that every saudi richmen is a financer of those. The thing is surely Eggers comes from having read those, having believed it, fell in the generalization wording and then assume that since ManC owners are saudi then they fall in the bag of taliban funders. Note that I considert that as another generalization equally unacceptable (besides, in the end it implies that if a saudi turns rich he'll enter the bag, which then implies every saudi is a terrorist friend but not all have enough money to fund, so yes in the end ugly racism is in fact there, just possibly hidden even to the author's conscious).

Knowing how their position is such to attract the hostility of some kinds of people, how it's easy to take that easy (and disgusting) pot shot at them and how people love to take those potshots, the fact I've never read anything about ManC being funders make me not just take the position of just not knowing who they are, but into the high confidence they got nothing to do with anything like that, that the most involvement with explosives I would expect from them is having a fabric of fireworks, for the enjoyment of the kids.

I think Eggers just made me a fan of Manchester City.

Go City!

(Note, my grammar is not good, I hope that didn't make a trick on me in this first half of my post and I've not turned to say something wrong that I don't mean, or haven't used a word with a second meaning that changes the meaning of some phrase. I merely try to expose how I read the post and where would actually be the racism of the post, if my assumptions and reading of the post are correct.

You may tell me: then if in the end you agree there's racism, which is bannable, and are as disgusted about it as us, why do you post with the fear language might trick you?. The answer is because there's a couple of points I could deliver taking the chance of fitting it, though at least one may not be clear.)

--------

In fact, in a post in general, I say I think for one who wants to dominate, the answer is not a giant team like ManC, ManU, Real Madrid or Barça, but the dominant team that does acceptably in europe and plays in a weak league, such as Porto, Benfica or Sporting in Portugal or CSKA Moscow or Zenit in Russia.

It's dominance and league is easier, but not that much easier:

In powerful league, you have several strong teams, hard to beat, that can get you quite down in the table, while in the weak league most are easy to defeat and you'll do with little effort with players that don't have to be great (I dominated portuguese league with Porto along Sporting with a team in EPL would be hard pressed to stay and would be more of a mid table championship side, did well in ECC), however that has a downside: the other big team is also as vastly superior against the rest, so you have to beat them, because if you lose to them, they will not find anyone with clear chances to beat them, therefore as many chances you have to go unbeaten the rest of the season, they have as much, so dropping four points behind at mid season can be all they need. In the other hand, if your main rival in EPL were ManU and you were there on top in a hand to hand fight with them, if they beat you in their match, there's still plenty other tough opponents that can beat them, so if you come with good results in those matches, your chances of catching and overtaking ManU would be bigger than in the other case.

I presume a comment calling Abramovic a Russian **** funding the KGB wouldn't get the same treatment.

W/E tho i guess if i had Asian ties i may take offence

1 - That's just an assumption

2 - If that were true, it wouldn't make any better the post from Eggers.

3 - If Eggers has a defence, he's who best knows and then he can surely have a way to let his defense reach the administration, so no point in arguing the decission. (Yeah, I know, I made a speech so I'm not the best to say this, irrelevant that I endorsed the decision).

4 - Let's get back to the topic, please? And sorry for my part of derailment.
