City & United - Recipe For Disaster

Google language translator

Manchester City and Manchester United will both play at home on the same night next month - surely a recipe for disaster.

Rags Carling Cup quarterfinal with Blackburn has been put back 24 hours to Wednesday December 3, with Manchester City facing Paris St Germain in the UEFA Cup on the same night.

United and Blackburn were due to play the previous night but both teams were keen to postpone for 24 hours, even though local police prefer both their major clubs not to play at the same time.

With four opposing teams playing within the Manchester catchment area all at the same time, surely this is a recipe for disaster.

Vital Man City says...

I think the GMP (Greater Manchester Police) are going to have their hands full that night.

The Met Police are the largest Police Service in the land, bar none. They are used to this sort of thing but are the GMP? Time will tell I guess.

Its not a recipe for disaster its guranteed without a question which too me i think ruins the game a little bit you either win or loose thats final end it at that i think just haven my brother as a utd fan does enough torture for me ha ha

You certainly wouldn't plan it this way if you wanted a trouble-free evening. I don't understand the reasoning that throws caution to the winds like this. If there's trouble the same people will be running around blaming football fans.

Of course if roles were reversed and we wanted to change a date we would have no chance.
