United - Two Embarrassing City Moments!

United - Two Embarrassing City Moments!

As the kick off approaches and the anticipation levels grow, Sir Alex Ferguson ha shad a few things to say about our neighbours!

In his pre-match press conference, Sir Alex couldn`t help but question the sanity of some of those who follow Manchester City and recalled two incidents that he felt were, how you might say, questionable.

The first surrounded the infamous Welcome to Manchester banner that heralded the move, across the city, of Carlos Tevez, with Sir Alex remarking,

"At the time I thought it was stupid and they probably think that now."

"I think it was probably worthwhile for maybe some of their supporters but not all. Others will have been embarrassed"


We`re not sure if embarrassed is the word we`d use, childish more like.

Sir Alex then turns his attention to one unfortunate supporter who, upon hearing the wealth the club had, let his ambitions rule his head, with Sir Alex commenting,

"There was one city fan who put a tattoo around his body saying 'European Cup Winners` I mean people simply get carried away and, unfortunately, supporters are just as bad as directors."

Before restoring a degree of normality to how things should be carried out in this wonderful game of ours by declaring,

"I think if you would ask their supporters they would prefer to see a trophy paraded through the city before they start screaming from the rooftops."

So has Sir Alex gauged it right?

Slur is talking about a poster that the rest of us had stopped talking about over a year ago. Hardly surprising really with the senility kicking in he probably thinks it was yesterday.

Yes the poster is very petty but why would you let it bother you? Afterall it is just a poster.

The poster that won us half a dozen marketing awards and was estimated to be worth up to £1.5 Billion in free advertising for the club - hell, that's enough to wipe out your debt. I'd be more embarrassed about one of our star players wanting to leave because of the club's obvious decline, only to re-sign when offered a huge pile of loot.

Is it sad to know so much about a poster?

Not really, the information I'm imparting to you was in the public domain and widely discussed on the Vital City forums. Most City fans will be able to tell you how big a marketing coup the poster was. Hell, you rags even played into making it a global phenomenon by kicking off about it. Cheers for that! Maybe if you lot made better use of your forums you'd know more of the comings and goings at your club.
