And I can honestly say Chelsea didn't over shadow anything City achieved. If I thought that was the case for 1 second, then I wouldn't have wanted them to beat Bayern Munich.
City winning the Premiership and Chelsea winning the Champions League are simply not related in any way - other than it rankled like fuck the minds of Rags up and down the country (and no doubt the Rag heartlands of Denmark, Sweden, Norway & Finland)
Chelsea winning the Champions League only added further to Fergie's pain in seeing the Noisey Neighbours lift the Championship, Chelsea the CL AND the FA Cup - and to rub salt into the wound...... even the woeful Liverpool won the League Cup.
As for England, never really bothered with them, to me they are a London team for Cockney's to watch in their London stadium. I took a passing interest to ensure City's players were not injured. And took delight in seeing a Rag miss one of the penalties. Maybe there will be effigies swinging from lamp posts in the morning
Still, you still have the Community Shield to your name for just over one month, so please rub it nice and cleanly because either City or Chelsea will be taking it off your hands very soon.
