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?
