Manchester City have won the FA Cup and completed a historic domestic treble.
However, the odds have been dramatically slashed on them being relegated from Football League within five years of world running out of oil.
The team comprehensively beat Watford 6-0, embarrassing the Hornets who should have scored first after Pereyra had a gilt-edged chance that any half-decent footballer would have put away.
The opposition started brightly, until unforgivable defending gifted the Sky Blues their first goal.
They went on to score five further goals, but neither neutral nor Watford fans were watching beyond David Silva’s 26th minute opener.
Manchester City’s current squad, assembled and financed at the cost of more than $1 billion, is just the latest example of the financial might the club’s owner, Sheik Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, the brother of the ruler of the United Arab Emirates, has.
The team is financed completely by an oil baron of such disgusting wealth it makes JR Ewing look like a Greenpeace activist.
The current estimate is the the world’s oil will run out in around 55 years.
Once that eventuality occurs, Manchester United, Liverpool and most other football fans will revel as the team almost drops out of the footballing pyramid entirely, finding themselves struggling in Greater Manchester Sunday Alliance division 8c playing only seven players, five from the same family, if you include the pet dog.
However, it’s unlikely in those 55 years they will be able to lift any sort of European trophy.
City have invested the money they’ve received from everyone’s petrol tanks wisely, by paying players like Philippe Sandler 38 grand a week.
No. Us neither.
The win means Wolves qualify for Europe.
Good news for them, after promises of them being reintroduced for the last few years.
