Setting the Record Straight!

Setting the Record Straight!

With the Manchester derby eagerly awaited, Darren Fletcher has come up with some words that tell it exactly as it is.

They`re unlikely to appeal to all but the Scot has, in my opinion, nailed it firmly on the head when he says,

"Our job is to keep Manchester United on top and as long as we keep on winning the big titles, it means they`re not winning them."

"We don`t want to give City the confidence of winning trophies to go to our level."

"If City were to go on a run of winning a lot of trophies, they would become a global club. But for world recognition, United stands out alone."

"The great thing about United is the history. No-one can take away the Busby Babes, the Munich tragedy - all of these things are engrained in the club`s history."

"United is known all around the world for its history and success, which is what makes it so strong and such a special club."


Now wait for the City onslaught when it comes to replies!

So the Munich tragedy was a good thing? I'm sure Fletcher doesn't mean that but needs to be careful re phrasing as this suggests that rag success has in part been down to that horrific event. And no, I don't sing Munich songs and would deplore anyone who did.

Hmm, have to agree with kenny in pointing out that even the current players think the Munich tragedy was good press for the club. Anything to win, right? Pathetic.

Refreshing to hear "The Felch" telling it like it is, ie that the Munich disaster was the making of your club, and has since been milked for all it was worth. It's a sad indictment of your club that they keep having to go on about something that happened over half a century ago, and should be respected as the tragedy it was,l but hey-ho, you never did have much class. Interestingly, the elderly client I've been working for the past few days tells me her brother-in-law was none other that Busby babe and Munich survivor Dennis Viollet. He was a Uni**d legend, but apparently he wouldn't allow any of his close relatives to admit supporting the reds, as he was a dyed in the wool City fan and his biggest regret was that he never turned out for God's own club. Go figure, eh?
