  1. “a single trophy of any kind”

    Facts, check. Might not be the ECL but don’t mean you should state things as fact that are simply not true. Mind you, you are a rag so I suppose that’s second nature.

    Good luck on satdi.

  2. Dennis Law played for City BEFORE he ended up at manure, and afterwards too. Do swome research, or are you one of those who believes football was invented in 1992?


    1956–1960 Huddersfield Town 81 (16)
    1960–1961 Manchester City 44 (21)
    1961–1962 Torino 27 (10)
    1962–1973 Manchester United 309 (171)
    1973–1974 Manchester City 24 (9)

  3. OK Billy_Azul I was out by a couple of years. I guess by ECL you mean the League Cup in 1976, two seasons after Law hung up his boots. It obviously makes a HUGE difference to the point that was being made.

  4. @fifthcolumnblue, you may not have understood that I was only looking at the number of games Law played for City AFTER his years at United where he became The King. You may note that I remember Law playing for Huddersfield under Bill Shankly in the late 50’s so no, football was not invented in 1992.

  5. Denis is being diplomatic, IF the title is coming back to Manchester it will be to Old Trafford, for all the money spent by City they cannot yet match Uniteds experience and knowhow; and before our blue friends start howling this rag believes it is only a matter of time.

  6. United have got a soft underbelly and i think its about to be squished.
    Denis definitely looked better in that city shirt. And he looks happier too.
    Rarely does he have a bad word to say about city. He’s obviously a blue inside.

  7. Do you REALLY believe that ‘United have got a soft underbelly’ m beaney or is that simply wishful thinking from the envious? Manchester United has just been named by Deloitte as the third largest European club revenue earners and the largest in the Premier League. It seems to me that their ‘underbelly’ is extremely tough.

  8. Let no one underestimate United. This United team is far from the greatest team to wear the shirt. There are in fact only four players I’d have at Eastlands if they came gift-wrapped – and no, Shrek’s not among them.
    But Fergie has instilled a culture, a belief within the club that allows them to claw back wins from drawing and even losing situations. Then there’s the match officials… I’m not being entirely serious but they do always seem to get the rub of the green when we play them. We underestimate this potent combination at our peril.
    Nevertheless, they are beatable as Wolves proved last week and far worse City teams than this one have stuffed much better United sides. The team that turns up on the day, Red or Blue, will win.

  9. @Mick travis, defeat isn’t Bitter if you sprinkle dirty revenge on it.
    Bring it on.
    Remember Wolves,they bit you also.Snarl.
    Which four players out of curiosity?
    Vidic, Rio, Evds,Rafael,Evra, Berbatov, Nani,Scholes, Giggsy,Ji sung Park,Not Micheal Owen, surely, lol.Antonio Valencia, Javier Hernandez, I know it is Wayne Rooney, I gaurentee, he will score the winner at the Stretford End, to make you “eat” your words.
    You have “Kettle Neck is he stll with, you?
    As you say, Bitter we have the , know how, through our manager, you have the Scarf. lol

  10. You were beginning to make sense Mick Travis – until you began talking about just four United players! Then you started going on about match officials and the rub of the green! CHE? I can accept that you are NOT being entirely serious just as you admitted but I entirely agree with your view that “The team that turns up on the day, Red or Blue, will win” The knife edge that football turns on guarantees that. As the old saying goes Che Sera, Sera.

  11. Oh Frank, I was bloody serious. That underbelly is as soft as a jellyfish’s inner thigh and on Saturday you will see Tevez, the rampant city spearhead, pearce it’s flesh with incredible ease. You’ve been warned.
