United Silenced The Noisy Neighbour

Our annoying little neighbours have been making all sorts of threats against us, led by manager Mark Hughes who claimed United were weaker without Cristiano Ronaldo.

'Sometimes you have a noisy neighbour. You cannot do anything about that. They will always be noisy,' Sir Alex said.

'You just have to get on with your life, put your television on and turn it up a bit louder.

'Today the players showed their form. That is the best answer of all.'


Sir Alex is enjoying this as much as the fans are! And he's right: maybe City will be less cocky after spending 40 minutes camped in their own half as United created chance after chance... Though obviously they will make a lot of noise about the amount of added time but sour grapes can do that to grown men who just totally failed to mark the most dangerous finisher on the pitch.

johnny come lately
Good game, poor defending by both sides, guess it is not over until it is over City have no excuse. Well done!! from an Arsenal fan.

What a surprise another bitter anti-United fan just itching to post on our boards. The game got the result it deserved. End of.
NotoriousRedDevil
Perhaps so, NRD, but surely even the most diehard Utd fan can't justify the added on time?
Aamir
Well Ive been winding City wannabies up all day after the match - and boy did I get some grief in their threads - so here it is....
UNITED TILL I DIE

Sure you'll all hold your heads up high tomorrow. Bit like the table of 16 manure fans who shut up and p*ssed off as soon as I walked into the pub in Chorlton tonight wearing my City colours. Funny, but not one of them could look me in the eye. Wonder why that is? Enjoy it while it lasts girls.

Can't wait phreddy till they score the winner in the 98th minute at the Emirates

Stinks of corruption. I cant find any other reason for those 3 extra minutes. Shocking, really. And it's cheating. You lot will crack this season, watch it!
JT_daniel
Cheating - cheating you say.......
You lot are just bitter that we won- City could easily have scored again in those last minutes IF they had been good enough
niteworlok
You idiot, the referee didn't even add on enough time after Ow*n scored! Please tell me, how could City have scored again?
Aamir
good one for the neutral, must admit I always love seeing Mark Hughes upset, not a big fan of the guy! Does remind me when Villa came 2nd to Man Utd in the 1st PL season though, think a statitician worked out Man Utd had played around 40 mins more than us!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Fear
Where's your man of the match poll? Will you be brave enough to include the ref in the list of nominees?
fifthcolumnblue
in fairness, from the neutral perspective of an aston villa fan, i feel the results is totally justified although the "added time" was certainly questionable. city, face it, you were HANDED all three of the goals you scored - even bellamy's cracker came from a poor header from evra to barry, losing possession in his own half. i know it hurts when united do that to you, but they did it to villa last season with some very questionable "added time". although, I felt villa had done enough to win that match or at least get a point. city never really bothered united that much. all in all - great game. cannot wait for this season to unwind.

Sometimes, you dont have to play well to get 3 points. Even on your off day, you'll have to capitalise on your luck. Citeh did that, but were robbed.
JT_daniel
Ok we deserved the game, espicially during the second half in which Man City was non-existant and truthfully it appeared only two players really turned up, Bellamy and Given. Tevez and Barry where perhaps a threat for five minutes then they died off. City can't deny the goals where handed to them on a plate: Poor keeping from Foster for the first Poor header from Evra and now closing down for the second Once again poor defending and keeping and some complacency from Ferdinand. The extra-time is completely justified, it is in balance of both teams to score and concede and it is a minimum (for those that still struggle to understand it, get a dictionary and look up the term) also when you take into consideration the celebration and subs the continuous freekicks and corners it adds up to be correct. If you don't like it, it's a shame go crying somewhere else as it is boring listening to the constant whining you can't do nothing about it so next time just make sure you beat us, however unlikely (a bit confident i know).

JT - Shut the ***** up you have a very short memory. Hull opening day of the season. Ref had a blue shirt on. Fifthcloumnblue why shall we put a referee in our list of motm. So you can come on here and vote a million times you bitter moron. Try and be your own club instead of the next Manchester United. Your story about Chorlton smells like a load of old bull to me. 4-3 you lost you aint one of the big boys.
NotoriousRedDevil
Ok now i'm going to post with my view on the match. Firstly i don't have a clue what was wrong with Foster, he can appear indestructible at times and look like he's not going to concede and then out of nowhere he appears fragile and a bundle of nerves. My second thought is whether it was complacency or Ferdinand just being an idiot either way it was a silly goal to concede which Ferdinand shouldn't of given to them so easily and which Foster should've saved, but in all fairness it was a good finish. Second goal and perhaps the most deserved, one great finish, but pressure in my opinion should've been put on alot earlier. In future we've got to aviod these silly defensive errors. Attackingly we were great although i wasn't to pleased with Parks performance in addition i believe we should only play 1 of Giggs or Park not both at the same time. Fletcher was amazing Rooney done well and i thought Berby done well but was unfortunate to get a goal and i was disappointed that we couldn't capitalize more on City's poor defensive performance, but hey we created the chance's and took them well and were just unfortunate. Owen's amazing finish sealed i game we deserved in the first place and i'm happy for Owen.

Tell me how a team can be given goals? They still have to have the quality and skill to put the ball in the net so your argument there is pretty stupid really. The result also says alot about your overrated defence. Foster is a rubbish keeper and Turdinand is possibly the most overrated defender in the league. After the farcicle finish the only hope your team has this year to win the title is if you get a few more favouable calls from the refs, which no doubt will happen as the FA seems to favour your club. I have no doubt after Sunday that the other big teams will chop your lot up with ease. I am now 200% more confident after this game that we will beat you later in the year. Enjoy your fall from grace.

They may have handed us 3 goals but we handed them 4. So much for the noisy neighbour crap as the stereo is about to be turned up to an altogether higher level from now on!
