Rags Setting Themselves Up For Massive Fall

And still they come. While City's management team and squad's comments focus on the job in hand, Sir Alex Ferguson and his players continue with wild threats and put downs...

Taggart has now swept aside the significance and meaning of a Manchester derby. A heinous dismissal of what it means and has meant to the legions of players and fans who have given their all for the fixture down the years:

'Liverpool will always be the derby game for me because of the history. It's been a bigger game for City over the years because they've not had the success. But they've been given a chance to be compared with us.'

The compliant, fawning hacks at his press conference then asked him if the modern day rags will ever go into the 'not really a derby' as underdogs:

'Not in my lifetime.'

There's more. We've already had Rio Ferdinand's dismissals of City and an admittedly more reasoned effort from Patrice Evra, but more rags are going to the hacks to threaten their total domination.

Nemanja Vidic, forgetful of Catalunyan humiliation last May said:

'They have improved their squad and look a much better team than last year, but to say they are the best team in Manchester is crazy. If they win the Premiership title for the next 10 years in a row then maybe we can talk again, but until then we don't just believe we are the best in Manchester but also the best in Europe.'

Up pops rag midfielder Anderson:

'However hard they work, City's attack will be inferior and this is a serious problem for them.'

Well, they've given Planet Blue shedloads of ammunition now. So brace yourselves Blues we're evidently about to be given a footballing lesson...or are we?

Bacon Face reckons we're 'cocky', have a go at these comments from his own squad. The way they're talking the games already over. This will be quite possibly the best 'derby' win when we beat the scum tomorrow.

Just pin all of these comments up on the dressing room wall and that should be our team talk. We've beaten them plenty of times with weaker teams than what we'll put out tomorrow and they are not as strong now.

Yawn heard it all before, the manure players and manager always take over the national press 48 hours before a derby, there PR team goes into overdrive and fires off statements to every newspaper this side of aus!, they spout more hatred than banter if you compare any articles from city players to theres you will see the difference, but thats just the way manure are always on the defensive it helps them cope when they get beat, to them the best form of defence is attack and they use the press to do that each and everytime they dont just try to beat you on the pitch they have to attack you in the papers in a sly and bitter way they do it to anyone who is a threat to them fergie says the exact same things before every derby "liverppol are our derby" he said it last and and the year before that and the year before that! rio makes the same statements every season i think we are only waiting on nev now for a FULL HOUSE

as it's 'lidde ciddy' we may as well not bother tomorow and if we do lay down and let the red t**ts roll over us as we will never win .... if you believe what the rag papers say it's a non event... but we are better than that we went there when it was there 50 munich anniversary and played them off the park and won, so tomorow we have a much stronger side so what have we got to fear they are all mouth and no bottle... so come on city we have nothing to fear... its them who' brickin.....
