A bag of money without history? City only have one game left to silence the haters

Column Grigory Telingater – about the defeat of “Real” in the semifinals of the Champions League.

It is a mistake to think that City has just reached the Champions League final. It was something else. The team that has never won this tournament has eliminated the club with the most titles. And not just eliminated, but carried out without a chance, both on the scoreboard and in the game.

In the first half, Real Madrid could not even give two or three accurate passes in a row – the opponent instantly covered. Now you can start giving stats of possession, hitting and so on, but do you really need to prove to someone who was better? Even in Madrid, every reasonable fan recognizes the superiority of City.

The case when there are no numbers left in the head, but emotions from the episodes. How Walker reaches and pushes back Vinicius’s body. How Grealish throws the ball between the legs of the great Modric. How Guardiola clenched his fists triumphantly in front of the spotlights. The coach obviously had it coming. He is generally rewarded for everything he has given to football.

Pep has built a team that is football friendly on sight. Here, even Foden (he spends an indistinct season) gives Álvarez brilliant assistance (in fact, he is also a reservist). Throughout the game there was the feeling that either the field was tilted in favor of City, or there were simply fewer Real Madrid players. The guests did not have their traditional implementation or their signature magic at the end. And without this, only a team of patients turned out. An elite punching bag. Madrid have been impressive for many years, but now they simply don’t deserve to be in the final.

“City” is called a money bag, although this can probably be said of most rich clubs. But these bags are different. You can buy a chic Messi/Neymar/Mbappé trio, but if the team doesn’t have “chemistry” then they won’t achieve anything internationally. You can buy a lot of promising players, but only hurt this team (hello London Dodgers). “City” is an exchange that works according to clear principles. They took Haaland, but still the transfer balance was positive this summer thanks to the sales of Sterling, Jesus and Zinchenko. Yes, in general, they spent a lot, but obviously not more than anyone else, but they got the most powerful equipment in the world.

And City joke about the lack of a great story. Over the course of this season, Guardiola’s team were mocked even by Nottingham Forest fans, who chanted: “Champions of Europe, Champions of Europe, they’ll never sing that.” Forest himself took the European Cup in 1979 and 1980. And now City are once again close to taking the club’s main trophy.

How has the team changed?

No one has a monopoly on the story. City writes it, although Courtois is very much against it. And while everyone jokes that something is wrong with the team, it is already in the top 5 league titles in the history of the English championships. For example, Chelsea is long behind on this indicator. To silence everyone, City lacks a title. We can say a match. It is difficult to imagine what Inter will be able to oppose.
