City vs United 30th April 2012

I was on TV this week which in itself is a monumental moment for an ordinary man. I was asked which was the my most memorable moment from the Manchester derby and my reply was the come-from-behind win in 1993 in the old Maine Road when United responded from going 2-0 down to beat City 3-2 on their old turf. That was the first most memorable derby for me as a Manchester United fan and first impressions last a lifetime. Since that match in 1993, a lot has changed between both sides and there have been other memorable derby ties as well as matches that have sickened us as United fans with results and performances going against us. The most recent and the one that has the biggest negative impact on us as a club would have to be the 6-1 trouncing at Old Trafford this season. Older generations would remember a time when Red Devils legend, Denis Law back-heeled a winner to send United into the Second Division as well as a tie in 1989 when United were hammered 5-1 by City in Maine Road.

Can We Really Make It 20 This Season?


The statistics this morning read; Manchester United joint top but still second in the table due to an inferior goal difference compared to that of Manchester City. Our neighbours lost thanks to a goal by an ex-Red Devil, the most recent one to move to the blue half of Liverpool, Darron Gibson. Ironically, his departure might have brought about some cheers among United fans all over the world and what is more ironic, is that perhaps his goal in the blue of Everton must have been cheered loudest by United fans; louder than any that he has scored while wearing the red of Manchester United.

The Ones That We Missed Out On!


Sir Alex Ferguson has spent 25 years as the manager of Manchester United and he has won the Premier League 12 times, FA Cup 5 times, League Cup 4 times, the Champions League twice, 10 Community/Charity Shields and one each of the now defunct Cup Winners’ Cup, Intercontinental Cup, FIFA World Club Cup and UEFA Super Cup. In his time, he has build and rebuilt at least 4 teams that have contributed in a large part to the trophies he has won and the legacy he has built at Old Trafford. The biggest and the highlight of all his achievements would undoubtedly be the Treble of 1999.  Hours away from our big FA Cup tie against our neighbours and current Premier League leaders, Manchester City, let’s look back to understand how special the Treble triumph was. What better way to do that then by assessing the trophies that we missed out on, on a couple of occasions as one of Sir Alex’s great teams went close to winning the Treble before and after 1999.
