Nev: We Have Nothing To Prove Against Bitters

Gary Neville rubbished claims that tonight's Carling Cup game is an opportunity for United to show that they are still top dogs in Manchester - like that's in question...

"I don`t see the game as an opportunity to reassert our dominance over City," he said. "We are quite comfortable with where we are.

"We are second in the league, we`re in the Carling Cup semi-final and we`re in the second phase of the Champions League, so we have nothing to prove.

"People might perceive that something is going on in Manchester between the two clubs, but we cannot afford to get involved in that. We just need to concentrate on our jobs like we`ve always done.'


Well said indeed. It would be a sad day when we started considering a Carling Cup semi-final as decisive in terms of the bragging rights between the clubs. What does matter is that we should win this trophy because in our current state this represents our best chance of silverware. That's it, no more.

United are on the verge of losing Rooney, United are in debt, United are history.

It's Chuckles; all I heard was, "Blah, blah, blah, I am stuck to Fergie's ass like superglue, blah, blah, blah."

Oooo there's a shock, Neville agrees with Fergie!!!!! Tell me, where was the Nevster's famous union militancy when Fergie kicked a boot at the head of his best mate and fellow PFA member? The rat-faced****. Retire. Today.

Disappointed that we didnt make more of our dominance at the beginning and end of the match, but I'd fancy us to beat em if we can get wes brown out of the team. For a guy with so much experience, he really hasnt helped Jonny Evans at all. But hey, at old trafford with 75,000 we should be able to get similar refereeing advantages as city got tonight - so we've got a good chance. I'd really like to see Rooney and Diouf start against city next week though. Rooney came alive once he had a partner.
