Is this the start of a new golden era?

Its way too early to say. And there are any number of factors to consider.
We have the basis of a title winning team, however........

97 points and no trophy? Maybe because City got decisions that they shouldnt have? Because of the Kompany non red card after his assault on Salah?
Sorry if you thought this injustice has been wrapped up and put away, but if fairness existed we would be double winners now.

We will only enter into a golden age if the playing pitch is level. Its not at the moment. Liverpool were magnificent last season, and they had to be. Few nice slices of luck as well to be fair. City were also magnificent, and lucky but not as good as Liverpool in reality. But decisions helped them.
They might fall back a bit, and if they do LFC will pounce.

Absolutely.
With the biggest trophy in football secured, Jurgen has done the hardest part of his career.
This is just the beginning for this squad, all players are in their prime and peaking.
All we need is a but of luck.
I'd target the FA cup and league now.

I'm not content just to pounce if the wildebeest slips on the slippery river bank. That's not the king of the jungle era that was meant in the thread title. I take your point about the level playing field: It is really unfair for Shiteh that they've got such crap home support.

Yep, we are long overdue a domestic cup aren't we? We can't push much harder for the league can we? Not to win the league after getting 97 points is unbelievable. City are stronger than any rivals in the league that we've ever faced. Think we must better them in our head to heads if we are to win the title next season. If we do that then these lads will bring us the title.

The luck was evenly distributed last season. We had luck with injuries that they didn't have. They had luck with flukey goals that we didn't. I want luck to play no role whatsoever.
The advantage they had was having had a season of 100 points behind them, opponents had already resigned themselves to be being beaten in all probability. Guess what? We'll have more roll overs next season than last too.

Luck always plays a part.

I hope so.I have been supporting the LFC for 70 years and I had the privilege of driving the team To training to Mel wood when I worked part time for Lawrence’s of Bootle who supplied the team coach in the old days..and I was invited into the little kitchen at Melwood while the first team. The reserves and the A and B teams for a cup of tea with Mr Shankly.Bob Paisley.Ronnie Moran etc. While they changed their trainers for their boots.many stories to be told.. I’m so proud .ihave my son and my grandchildren are all fanatics for the team and they all know who Grandad supports.

Maybe post this here? We've been named as the world's third-best club, behind City and Bayern and ahead of Barca and Real:


Also this:

"Premier League rivals Manchester United meanwhile have embarrassingly dropped to 34th behind the likes of Spanish minnows Leganes and Eibar as well as Greek side PAOK, Germany's Hoffenheim and Young Boys of Switzerland."

lol

Edit, whoops, I misread - we're ahead of Barca and Real, not behind.

I'd have us ahead of Bayern too.
