[Music] hey guys it’s stephen here i am back in manchester after uh our honeymoon um gemma ring by the way it’s nice or something uh the world has been quiet obviously over the past week not much going on in the world of manchester city football club it couldn’t have chose a better time to go absolutely crazy could it uh a whole myriad of mad stories which are going to get through today i want to say first though please go and give one football a download in the link in the description below be massively appreciated uh it’s helped me keep up to date with all the news going around the world of football because it’s been absolutely crazy uh it’s a fantastic app with all your manchester city news all your transfer gossip and all the stats and information that you personally need to know about and a little bonus it helps support my channel so download one football right now in the link in the description below go and do it you’ll be absolutely wonderful so uh it’s been a weird week it’s been a weird week i’m sorry i’ve not been around much i i was honeymooning uh i got a little bit of a time now we were in the lakes it was lovely we went to a spa and we stayed in a lovely little hotel and we needed it to be honest as a detachment and separation from the wedding and the tiredness of everything that we’ve been through this week so it was great it was great um this video is going to be a little bit of a different one it’s going to be more of a reflective piece over the past week and just talking about where i’m at with everything in general because um there’s been so much news to take in that i’ve seen an awful lot of heads gone on twitter and i don’t blame people for being upset or stressed or whatever but what i will say is this rolling 24 hours news cycle does do things to your nerves it does wind you down it does grind you down to the bone sometimes and um i think maybe being detached from it for the past week and genuinely enjoying myself you know canoeing on lake windermere or walking around caves or just chilling with room service and just being totally detached from the world of football sat in a spa pool um has made me realize just how little um control we have over this whole thing and how it really isn’t worth stressing yourself out over now i’ll touch on a couple of things first i mean um obviously there was um incredibly incredibly horrific news about benjamin mendy um i am not going to talk about the benjamin mendy stuff uh at length on any videos if want i think it’d be entirely inappropriate of me uh the out there the facts are that he’s been charged um uh charged through lots of very severe allegations which i’m not going to discuss because there’s no point in me speculating i can’t sit here and say what should be going on with mandy it’s highly sensitive there’s people affected by this he also has families on the other side um there are there are many many people involved in this um and i’m not gonna sit here and do that i would advise anyone else making youtube videos as well if they watch this to do the same because this isn’t this isn’t football news this is much deeper than that and much more serious and it’s not for me a guy who just talks about transfer rumors to talk about um serious allegations of sexual assault it isn’t for me so i won’t be talking about that um very least until there is something to comment on how it relates to manchester city of course he’s been suspended by man city which seems the only thing they can do right now but that’s all i’m gonna say going forward it’s of course a legal case and it would not be right or appropriate of me to discuss it um i know i also could be very very very um a drinking for an awful lot of people who’ve been through things of this nature before so anyway moving on from that um there’s also a little bit of news of course about transfers and so which we’ll get onto a little bit guardiola did also imply that he believing after his two years were up at manchester city which was quite intense randomly off the cuff comments just to some journal and came out of nowhere which has felt like a dagger to the heart of manchester city fans of course um he’s kind of backtracked on it today in his press conference saying i don’t know i could be leaving in three months if i’ve started to fail miserably five months it could be five years all i was saying and he i’m obviously ad-libbing here um paraphrasing he was saying basically when he leaves he wants to break after his manchester city contact contracts he’s over so guardiola kind of said he was going to leave and then said he wasn’t going to leave i always felt personally that you’ll probably do the seven years and not extend after that we’ll see i guess in time a lot of news and then of course the hurricane transfer fell through now i remember hearing at the start of the week or when was it maybe last week i managed to see you weren’t quite as keen on harry kane uh as pep guardiola was i tweeted um that or did i put on the forum i can’t remember but the idea was that city felt the money that they would have to suspend on kane um wouldn’t be wise and they were more interested in the idea of a project striker like flyer or someone like that as it transpired guardiola’s come out and said that the reports about daniel levy refusing to negotiate were true and he would simply not negotiate with manchester city and say he finally backed out in a hurricane obviously put that statement saying he was going to stay which led then to a mad scramble of all people cristiano ronaldo absolutely insane in a market where football is absolutely screwed financially we could be looking at some of the ronaldo messi and bappe all move which just seems absolutely insane given how bankrupt everyone is currently at the moment um but either way this is where we were and this was all very real it’s all very real until today it came out the manchester city are no longer in for ronaldo because he were in for ronaldo albeit briefly but they were in for ronaldo which is fascinating um it’s crazy uh did discuss an offer with mendez and all that kind of stuff personally he’d have to believe maybe don’t want to i really really don’t care got nothing to sell because i’m not putting it on the front of the video anything like that i heard that city did make an offer to announce camp but didn’t want to didn’t want to pay 30 million which juventus were demanding so i don’t know maybe they looked at the situation and had some qualms about his impact on the team in terms of would he fit in to the style maybe they didn’t want to pay the 30 million maybe they saw his age maybe there was just some natural hesitancy and didn’t have the desire of the world to pull through and get this transfer done so someone else is coming maybe it’s united or whatever and they’ll go for it and i don’t know just put my camera on again because as i was filming this uh united agreed a deal with ronaldo so i guess that explains why city suddenly backed off because united came in offered loads of money apparently juventus said yes ronaldo said yeah i fancy going back as the superstar and city backed out um that was the cause of that i guess i don’t know but one thing we’re saying is that ronaldo it probably said he’d stumped up the money aggressively probably i’ll be on his way to manchester city maybe city we’re in for him they can pretend they weren’t but everyone knows they were there’s too many connected journalists and too many rooms going around to deny it entirely it was never obviously going to happen definitely but it was clearly something that for us to consider which leaves manchester city um a few days before the transfer window closes with no striker um after a season last year when we didn’t have a reliable striking option as well due to aguero’s injuries and it does leave the club a little bit with egg on his face admittedly um especially after kyle dune had come out and said that city would be going big to replace sergio aguero um this summer uh he essentially made that promise on the video and that hasn’t happened uh unless something crazy happens last minute it very much looks like manchester city you’re going to go into this season with a combination of ferran torres um gabriel james used to false nine and maybe even young gleam the lap uh which should be very interesting and guardiola come on pretend he said happy he probably isn’t happy deep down and it’s definitely definitely definitely a blow um my honest opinion look i’ve said this on twitter so you know i’m not exaggerating here i was never keen on my now in the first place um i don’t really like the guy and i know some people love him but i’m not sure if this is a generational gap here but growing up i couldn’t stand the man i thought he was a preening snidey cheating little guy on the pitch and he used to annoy me how he’s obsessed with himself how he would wouldn’t celebrate his teammates goals and all that kind of stuff and i thought he’s united legend and all this kind of stuff and he was old but more than that if i’m being honest without getting too serious the allegations around ronaldo given the timing of the news this week with benjamin mendy and i know that case was closed but i was i’m never really i don’t want to go too much but i was never really comfortable with how it ended that case i was following relatively closely it was more calm proof something happened 10 years ago and he was she paid that caught i i didn’t really like the guy i don’t trust the guy is what i’m saying i know some people do good on yours whatever personally i share a different view um that’s just how i see it and you have to i never really i’ve never really liked ronaldo full stop i found him annoying even though i don’t deny he’s brilliant he’s clearly insanely good football one of the greatest of all time and he would definitely succeed in manchester city it isn’t about winning at all costs for me uh i never liked him and i was totally relaxed but the idea him not coming and i was never even that keen on kane and maybe it means i’m spoiled whatever but um this is the world view i share now people can turn around and mock me if you want to but for me in football winning isn’t everything it isn’t uh and that might may sound insane but i think you have to keep a little bit of dignity and keep your soul a little bit every now and then because otherwise and there’s a great article over on bloomberg podcast patreon by dan merk you do um you do become that person who chases success and fame at any cost all the time and i do become a little bit uncomfortable with that personally and maybe you can turn around and say well that’s nonsense but for me football there has to be a cut off line and i was never comfortable with this for many reasons and i wasn’t even though he’s brilliant i wasn’t comfortable with it you’d have to agree my opinion and i don’t give a if you agree or not i genuinely don’t in that instance because that’s how i felt about ronaldo as a person um whatever um which does the city about striker um which is clearly a blow i do think city have failed i think the board had failed in the summer where you know messi was available on a free transfer and i put that in diverted commerce because you know he’s really expensive and ronaldo was available for 30 million once again that’s in inverted commerce because he’s worth well more than that when you get down to contracts and image rights and all that kind of stuff and harry kane was wanting to come to man city and even people like danny ings were available you know and bappe’s moving and in the summer of all these trans strikers that could have done a gentleman city uh moving um us to not get one after what we went through last season um with aguero leaving the board have failed they have failed absolutely failed do you want them out though no i don’t want the board out because i’m also aware that despite them failing and they’ve got a lot to answer for they’ve also brought us unparalleled levels of success during my time i’ve never seen as a manchester city fan they are statistically overseeing they’ve overseen statistically the most impressive sides in english footballing history and that’s a fact whether we like to admit it or not it is a fact um this city side have done incredible things under guardiola of course and probably maybe they should go on to do even better things but i can’t sit and say here that everything has been a failure because it hasn’t maybe this has been a failure of a transfer window or whatever maybe it is maybe we do like a little bit of naivety getting these mega deals i’m sorry mega deals over the line maybe we do maybe that’s something we need to learn because we are new to this highest level of modern super club football so maybe it is something we need to learn and maybe the more times you get burned the more lessons you learn and maybe we get there eventually having said that i’m not panicking maybe this is just me maybe it’s the few days in the spa or the newly married husband relaxation speaking here but i’m not panicking and i think it’s because i know ultimately manchester city will be fine and my definition of fine is probably definitely different to some of yours and for fine for me is will city probably finish in the top four challenge for some trophies i played pretty well most of the season yes we might even win a trophy or two will we win the league there’s a very good chance though even without a striker city you’re an exceptionally good club as we all know and we also will be capable of last season um so this is more than more than enough of a chance who knows man maybe football has these little moments where these little stories happen maybe fran torres will become the guy that we think is maybe leaving the lap we’ll actually have a breakthrough season and we’ll see you know our very own mason green order marcus rashford moment or something like that maybe he will become the superstar that we think he could be i don’t know that’ll happen or not and maybe i’m just hoping but you know what you’ve got to hope and have a little story every now and then in football and i don’t see anything wrong with that you know i don’t see anything wrong with it if it means that city get by this season we don’t want to leave finish second or third play some good football but we see the likes of you know for antares growing confidence in liam’s lap get some game time maybe cole palmer uh i can take it for a year and it’s not ideal and some people will freak out over that but i guess maybe years and years of watching manchester city be terrible has allowed me the patience mentally for the fallow season if if we solve our problems the summer after it’s not an excuse it’s not a concession to mediocrity or anything like that maybe it’s just that i don’t see finishing second after a couple years of winning the premier league or whatever and after plenty of premier league trophies maybe i don’t see second for one season uh as a success uh because concession of mediocrity maybe i just see is a decent season not our best we go again next year it could also be that we win the premier league again i guess the point i’m making is city will be fine we’ve got too much money too much know-how even if we have bottled these mega transfers uh which we’re not very good at doing over being honest um maybe we need to learn but we will be back but we will be stronger and we’re probably still going to win something this year we might even still win the league because we are still fantastic and there’s no guarantee it always feels like when you look on twitter that the world is falling apart and manchester city you’re going to collapse remember everyone’s everyone says that the guardiola’s reign was over last season um it may be difficult to repeat that but we answered an awful lot of questions and went further than we ever have in the champions league and we won the league after a sensational run um in the league winning how many games in a row be patient be calm uh by all means be disappointed that we haven’t signed the striker i’m not telling you you were wrong to do that i am also disappointed but do i want the baby in the throne out of the back water no do i want all the board sacks no i don’t do i think manchester city are now fading into mediocrity no we’re not of course do you think the season got a little bit harder and we might not win the league yep i do is that a disaster for me no maybe that’s the difference between me and some people and i know some other blues feel the same way i don’t want success at any cost you know um instant gratification ronaldo definitely would have been fun but for me he’s not the kind of person i want at the club you’re welcome to disagree could not be asked i can do that over that for various reasons um but i i i would prefer the lap place for your games and when i would play 30 games call me crazy but what i value for football is different for what other people value football um and maybe i’m meant to be sat here in a pure youtube style ranting about cheeky and sorry and i think they have failed this summer over being honest um but maybe i haven’t got the energy for that you know maybe i realized just how lucky we have had it as many city fans over the past 10 years and so we’ve had it incredibly incredibly good that doesn’t mean i accept failure it doesn’t it just means i’m a grown adult i can be rational at the same time and understand things can sometimes be very very difficult in this world um i will not be happy if we fail guardiola and we really struggle i will not be happy at the same time i am not willing to give up everything that’s been so good over the past few years and pretend it didn’t happen just because we didn’t sign a striker this summer and who knows man it’s been the craziest few days i’m certainly recording this a quarter to five on a friday and if the story comes out with a half hour and i see you about to sign some random play we’ve never been into before would anyone really be surprised given this crazy crazy window and once again i did a video here chatting about all the big news and i just totally forgot to mention the champions league group draw as well um that shows you how insane life has been over the past week from manchester city fan just so much going on of course the ronaldo stuff that keynes though the awful mendy news the pep guardiola news um and this of course as well and that’s a difficult group we’ve got manchester city at top of blue bay of course with paris saint-germain uh potentially in bappe less but now with messi donnarumma why now them uh you know and all these other players um they are a fantastic side one looking for a revenge no doubt after we knocked him out last year i fancies to beat them still but that becomes that’s a difficult time it’s a difficult time and then it doesn’t get much easier i’ll be leipzig um a ferociously good side you know aggressive well run always getting stars out of nowhere and been stripped of a couple of assets of course recently kanate leaving them um but alive ziggs are a fantastic side and they’ll no doubt put up a firm challenge and then club rouge now i’d be lying if i said i knew much about club rouge or how they got on last season let me just quickly google it but either way they’re not the they’re not the whipping boys are they um they’re really not you know uh that you would hope in a group like this currently the second second over um in the belgian league last season they weren’t they finished last season i kind of i don’t know where they were they finished top last season uh in the reagan so they won the league last season as well so yeah they are the current uh belgian champion so that’s an interesting little group there isn’t it i know a little bit of spice for this week manchester city i fancies to go through that but it’s it’s pretty close to a group of deaf people being honest it’s not the easiest creep in the world anyway uh i haven’t always to add other but then messi is coming to the etihad of course he is down angelino coming back as well which will be interesting as well uh but messi um neymar and co maybe richarlison if you believe the rumors as well maybe harland even believe the rumors who knows it’s been a crazy crazy week so that is my little recap on all the news from manchester city it’s been absolutely insane um we haven’t said cristiano ronaldo we were going to then we weren’t we were going to sign kane then we weren’t um so you’ve suspended a play it’s been awful uh pep was gonna said he was gonna leave two years and he said he kind of hasn’t it’s been a weird weird week and we’ll be back doing loads of football videos of course now i’m back home the honeymoon is over quite literally um and now we get back to work uh guys thank you for watching this video big love to scott deny me my patreon producer of course and thank you everyone who’s been supporting me recently i really really appreciate it once again these are all just my opinions you don’t have to agree with them i’m not asking anyone to agree with them just explaining where i’m at am i currently i’m not going to panic because panicking we don’t do it very often in manchester city and we tend to get more things right than we don’t so that’s all i ever ask guys love you all loads like comment subscribe call my city
