As Manchester City clinched a record breaking 100-point haul in the Premier League, the comparisons with the Invincibles Arsenal team of 2003-04 were always inevitable.
Is it better not to lose a single game but to have 12 draws or to lose twice but pick up a record number of wins, goals and points?
That debate can rumble on but it is clear that Arsenal fans are not keen on the suggestion that a team may have bettered their achievement – especially in the same season that legendary manager Arsene Wenger stepped aside and they want to savour his glories after years of forcing him out.
The objective is to get as many points as possible so some might argue that City’s is the greater achievement.
However, it is key to mention that both seasons came as European glory – that really should have been clinched or at least brought closer to assert the European dominance of two teams who swept all before them at home – slipped away early…
The essence of a fallen top club: looking back instead of forward. Do you think Real fan sites are posting 1998 Champions League win pics every damn day. Move on!!

No. Invincible’s were better, if you even think man city are even top 10 you’re wrong. So many teams before dominating Europe and city not one of them.

You only had Liverpool and Man Utd as genuine competition. Now there are 6 teams of high level. Plus, underdogs win more nowadays as the fear factor for lesser teams has gone.

City had no competition this season. They won the league by 19 points. Everyone apart from City and maybe Burnley had a rubbish season domestically.
