Rambling Taggart In Small Club Now A Threat U-Turn
Manchester united's Supreme Leader has spoken about Manchester City. Again. Wandering around the swamp in his dressing gown and slippers he now perceives 'liddle ciddy' to be 'a threat...'
Only a couple of week's ago, This Charming Man-ager referred to The Blues as a 'small club with a small mentality.'
This prompted resurgent City boss Mark Hughes to up his efforts to forge a siege mentality at SportCity by pinning up the shouty ref goader's quotes at City's Carrington training ground.
But one game into the new season and the knight of the realm's wind has started to blow in a different direction...
'It would be foolish to ignore developments at Eastlands. Manchester City do pose a new threat. We have only to look at how well Chelsea did with back-to-back championships after a massive injection of Russian cash to know money can talk.
'All the leading clubs are looking with interest to see how Mark Hughes handles the situation and whether he can make it work.'
Indeed. However, he did knock out a caveat:
'We are all looking over our shoulders, though as far as Manchester United are concerned, it is not in fear.'
Do these latest Fergie scattergun comments confirm further that he is losing the plot...?
