Watford are still standing in the Cup, but I guess most will call it the blues to claim glory, however I think the Hornets will start like a Rocket Man, play like pinball wizards, put their bodies on the line, sacrifice themselves for the cause and then Saturday night will be alright. Huge wager on Hornets on pens so don't go breaking my heart, can see myself going wild clutching the winning slip already thinking someone saved my life tonight as the last pen goes in, looking around for something to cling to like a candle in the wind, then I see Daniel my brother who says they're playing your song we are the Champions and I think to myself, it's gonner be a long long time til I get this feeling again.

England is too easy for City because of the money they've spent compared to everyone else, it's like a heavyweight taking on a middlewight, hard to have respect for winners when the other team are so handicapped from the off.

Manchester City F.C still hold the record for the highest attended all English football match, 84,569 fans packed Maine Road for a sixth round FA Cup tie against Stoke City in 1934 (City went on to win the FA Cup that season). The ground was packed two and a half hours before kick-off, as supporters sat down on the touchline only yards from goalkeeper Frank Swift

Totally agree, games this one sided usually are

I watched Liverpool beat West Ham 6-0 when we were in our pomp and it was the most boring game I had ever seen. The Kop even cheered on West Ham in the second half for some entertainment.

Moanrinho already inherited a really good set of players at Porto when he took over. According to Transfermarkt website, during his 2 seasons at Porto he signed 38 players!  Moanrinho and Pep have inherited really good sides at every club they have been at, but still spent a ton of money on top.  Moanrinho signed 133 players for £1.4 billion.  Pep has signed 55 players for £1.03billion.   Cheque book managers.

It was essentially the spine of Portugals Euro 2004 team that won the Champions League?

Maniche, Deco Ferrara, Costinha and Nuno Valente

I mean he didn't exactly have much to do with that squad in my opinion, it essentially picked itself and he inherited most of them

Signed up 3 or 4 others as well

Yeah the CL win was impressive but when you look at the way Portugal performed with more or less the same team it wasn't that impressive in hindsight

You can call any manager of a top club a chequebook manager then, especially when they have got job at 3 or 4 top clubs successively like Pep and Jose. That's just modern football, can't criticise them for spending when the money is there. They got those jobs for a reason and numerous other managers who have spent big didn't do nearly as well. Money is only one aspect of football. It is really down to the manager to make the players look worth the money.
