It`s Not About City

It`s Not About City

As the Manchester derby approaches, there is a suspicion that the title could be decided United`s way.

But, enticing as it seems, winning it at the Etihad Stadium doesn`t feature prominently in Rio Ferdinand`s thoughts with the defender commenting about just securing the title,

"I couldn`t care less. As long as we win the trophy, I couldn`t care less where we win it."

The fans would love it but as long as you get your hands on the trophy you would take it in the back garden."


But, with the title still to be won and with the daunting prospect that one slip up could sway things back in City`s favour, even more so if they win the Manchester derby, Rio admitted being perfectly aware that goal difference could be decisive admitting that was in their thoughts when they were beating Aston Villa 4-0 yesterday, further commenting,

"We know the score, the manager doesn`t need to tell us."

"We know we have to score goals and, if we are on top, we have to punish teams. This season we haven`t done it as much as we should have."


But the gut feeling is that we, if we don`t slip up, have done more than enough to take that 20th top-flight title!

It's because you're actually not very good at playing football anymore. Theatrics is another matter entirely.

Plastic playthings of oil barrons who rob their people's money and natural resources to fund their buying of the premier league have got to stick together I suppose.....

Yes, our owners are nothing compared to those saintly Glazers. How much are your season ticket prices going up next season BTW?

Haha! Let's see how long your season ticket prices remain reasonable for and how long you can gloat about it before inevitably looking like a hypocrite because City have to raise their season ticket prices to remain financially competitive due to the FFP rules meanin they have to stand on your own two foot rather than being some oil barons plaything and relying on his millions. It's use to be you buy the league... That died off when you blew our spending out of the water. Then it was Owen lol... Until you scraped Hargreaves from the bottom of the barrel. Then it was Rooneygate... Until Tevez took it one further and Balotelli proved to be the biggest (unt in the league. Then it was you've got no money until we stretched our financial muscle and spent a small amount, 60 mil, of our record breaking revenue on 3 players. Then it was average squad... Until that supposed average squad overtook pole position for the title ahead of City's mega money stars. Now it's season ticket prices, you City fans running out of insults? Do you not get fed up of being made to look like idiots and hypocrites?

why would our season tickets go up, unrealistically? maybe 5-6% ok but not the astronomical amounts being published on some manure websites, £800-1000,for seats in the gods being the norm, IF our tickets went up 10% it would still be£2- 300 cheaper than you lot, and with the extra revenue the naming rights bring why should we worry about the FFPR? i mean we could always float on the Singapore Stock Exchange... , to bring in a few quid.......Eh, all this to keep the Wonderfull Glazers in the manner they have become accustomed to..... Thanks to all the Trafford park tourists..., all the locals/Salfordians in the Pub watching the match, never the ground......

Who's looking the idiot famous? LOL! P.S. Our owners are building hotels, art galleries, a major training ground and leisure facility, and snapping up the best youngsters in world football. I would expect we'll be all right, in spite of the likes of Nobbend Charlton and David Gill's poisonous whispers in Platini's ears about "Financial fair play". You worry about your debt, and having to bring players out of retirement, we'll worry about our end of things eh?
