Oh, what happened to me, what happened to you? What happened to Robinho and Benjani?
No matter what Manchester City's injuries are, everything you need to create a generation-to-generation club football era is 2.3 billion euros, the eager dream of a Gulf nation rich in oil and the best manager of modern times. This week's focus is on a 10-year plan, moving backward and forward.
Sunsay's Derby at Etihad Stadium will be a decade since Manc clásicos was first unveiled in November 2008 and will be the tenth anniversary of the birth of the Emirati owner Club 3.0.
When I suddenly focused on my first five years, I felt like a refreshing anniversary. It was time to invest in a large company to secure an immediate competitor position at the start of the game.
How do I get there from there? From a mismatched young team to a smoothly manipulated machine? That's a good question, and it's a poignant question on the weekends into the football world through a continuing leak-based survey of the financial statements of Longbow and the phrase "closed payment loop".
According to Der SpiegelThe real expenditure on the team for the first four years was about 1.26 billion euros, and according to your view on the rules of financial fair play, the number of cheering and holding high-five or pearls in the throat is about 1.2 billion It was 10 million euros. The club color is likely to be.
When the screen melts at some point, the wind chirps and we head for the first time in a new era in almost a decade. By November 2008, the city had its first baby footprint under the ownership of Thaksin Shinawatra. Taksin Shinawatra funded a voluntary recruitment period during a responsible year.
The Abu Dhabi acquisition was completed on September 1, 2008, and has now generated a profit of € 137 million for Thaksin, a fugitive in the Thai authorities.
The first few days of Abu Dhabi's ownership were dizzy. Manchester United failed to sign Demetar Berbatov. To get rid of the terrible burden of disposable income, City earned Robinho € 36 million. Just like when Chelsea started selling shirts with his name reversed.
Robinho ultimately scored 14 goals in English football and moaned about the cold, leaving half of the charge a year later. But in November 2008, in the stadium, still known as Eastlands, he was the center of a very strange Front 3, enthusiastically and frankly, with Benjani and Darius Vassell.
Behind them were Steven Island, Shaun Wright Phillips, and Dietmarhaman. Vincent Kompany is the only player to start tomorrow afternoon, starting with a central defense.
That day's city bench is a fascinating little memory from promising Thailand, to the fabulous Premier League wonders of Kasper Schmeichel, to the wonderful Brazilian Elano and the slightly less cool Brazilian Joo.
United was the ruler of Europe. Berbatov, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, and still has Carlos Tevez ready. Because Joe Hart could confuse Michael Carrick's drive, Eastland Rooney scored on the only goal of the game, knocking him down half-time.
At that point Manchester United were comfortable enough for Manchester United despite Ronaldo being sent off for a supposed handball in the second half.
As a result, Rooney later told everyone that he reminded "who is the true King of Manchester". The BBC agreed with United's dominance, referring to "the city's wealthy new owner, Abu Dhabi United, fully explained in the lessons both sides are hoping to negotiate."
Sky Sports was a little more foreseeable, and Web's report suggested, "The vast wealth of cities will make a fierce battle in the future."
You do not say.
Ten years go by and the bold and mismatched city team seems to have nothing to do with the current high-spec model. Sven-Göran Eriksson will later observe that Sino-Natala "had no idea about football," and even in the early days there was a contrast with the irresistible will of the new regime. Seven months later, David Silva and Yaya Touré arrived at the Tevez Declaration for € 53m.
Since then, City's projects have had clarity and contrast with Ferguson's progress in United. From the earliest signs of a consistent gaming system to Pep Guardala's deliberate staged employment – the deal was signed a year ago. Der Spiegel Now let us know. This is a team that always seems to be headed in one direction and is moving towards the current version at each stage.
Given the current strength of the city, even a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League looks like an ominous little kick.
Chelsea and Liverpool have kept pace so far. However, poetry is still ahead in most respects, including most points, most goals, most shots, most dribbles, most possessions, and best pass accuracy.
No one has more assists than Raheem Sterling and Benjamin Mendy. No player has scored more goals than Sergio Aguero. Nobody has a higher pass completion rate than John Stones, which is less meaningful than usual, given the tactical importance of the latter half of the game.
United has shown great resilience on Wednesday night in Turin over the past few weeks. However, a decade-long delegation from the Gulf State D-day has been fragmented and thrown together in a series of disconnected regimes.
United's trip to the Deerheim Theater tomorrow has still won the last four seasons in the José Mourinho season. The win was also missed by Etihad and Kevin De Bruyne, both of whom Paul Pogba scored in April.
Nonetheless, the change in performance between these two clubs is still the clearest in the central region. A tall, angular football-loving United team will be with the city's fluid midfielders, like the cybermen platoon chasing cat litter.
Just as United have successfully advanced against Juventus, United will be in a confusion, take a break and exercise their power in the set.
But the decade is a shining mark of a changing age and big football finances, and the victory of the world 's most lucrative soccer team can now be felt as a blow to small people.
