They should buy a defender and a midfielder and then they'll be title contenders

They can`t buy a winning team. You also need to have cultur and history to win EPL, and that has ManUnited, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.

I think ManCity will win the league, not this year but maybe next year. Chelsea didn`t have so many ligatitels and big history before the Russian came and "bought" a winning team in the 90s.

look at chelsea as a perfect example of buying to win.

it's patchy now but wait 2 or 3 seasons and city will be in the mix..

and cantona you realize that the reason manure, chelsea, arse and pool have a "history" or winning the EPL is because of their advantage in money over the smaller clubs (originally due to their location in larger metro areas and thus ability to become bigger faster).

If they dont win anything soon I expect the boss to tighten his wallet, big stars may also be put off going to City

thwey are one of the richest people in the world they wont even notice if a bilion is missing they can spent as much as they want but they cant buy all the time football does not work that way you need same squad for couple of years for team chemistry

Bad thing is they buy players from competing teams so there is a rivalry. That will surely upset the chemistry
