United - The City Thing!

United - The City Thing!

To the outsider it`s probably quite entertaining to see Manchester City above Manchester United in the table.

The quaint British public are probably enthralled at the prospect of Manchester City making in-roads into gate-crashing the so-called big-four (although Liverpool seem to have pushed the self-destruct button) even if it`s being secured on the back of a bucket load of oil-cash resulting in record annual losses being announced by the club.

The last time City, in the merry-month of October, were in such a position was in the 1990/1991 season when they eventually finished the season above us, the last time they did such a thing.

But to us United fans, any fleeting images of the blue half of the city lording it over the red half are but fleeting. We`ve every faith that United will come out on top (as usual) and when Vincent Kompany chirps to the media about it not being about United, he couldn`t be further from the truth, here`s what Vincent had to say,

"It`s not about United."

"It`s about ourselves. As long as we try and remain in the position we`re in now, and maybe one spot away from first place, everyone will be happy regardless of United."


That is unless you remember about the old adage that implies if you finish ahead of United you win the league!

You`ll be looking up at us again boys!

As nice as it is to be sitting ahead of your lot, I don't think anybody on the Blue side is getting carried away just yet - if we're still there towards the end of April then I might just let myself get a bit carried away! Thing is, you aren't looking too clever at the moment, and we've not yet even got all our players back yet, so I suspect we will provide a much sterner challenge than most reds expect.
