But it wasn’t “any other season”, it was that season, and before Jose, the season before that one , and before that, and the one before that and...With a City team finishing on 100 points, which was a new record originating from 1996 chelsea (!), in any other season, 81 points would be a title challenge.
We need to stop living in the past. The competition don’t care if this season’s points total would have won us the league in 2011, or finished us in the top four in 2017. They don’t care if in 2008, we won a Champions League, they don’t care if in 2012, we scored more back-heel overhead volleys from the left hand side of the d, with less than three touches in open play...no one cares. All they care about is that every single season, the bar is being raised, and they’re the ones doing it, while we’re bleating about “but in such and such year, this or that points total would have qualified us for the Haribo Cup.” God, it’s almost unfair that all these teams aren’t allowing us to transpose our 1991 league points total into 2019!
The league table is all that matters.
