Post Match Reaction: Optimism MUFC v MCFC


Vital Manchester City received the following article from BlueWolfie.

I watched the 153rd (Greater) Manchester Derby at a friend's home near Munich, on Sky TV. There were several of us there and you can imagine how we all reacted at the end of the game, because of the extra two minutes of 'United Time'.

However, that is not why I am scribing this article. Instead of ranting and raving at the debacle, I am here to (attempt to) point out the good things we can collate from that very game.

*We scored three away from home at the Swamp.
*We only had one striker.
*We went behind before each of our goals, meaning we fought and battled to stay in the game. In particular, going behind within 2 minutes.
*Tevez upset the Rags, no end.
*Bellamy had a blinder of a game, scoring two beautiful goals.
*It was not our full-strength squad, and quite frankly we'd have won it easily, if it had been.
*Given was brilliant.
*Same for Toure.

Admittedly, it took me a while to calm down after the final whistle - which apparently the referee had lost somewhere - and I found myself actually admiring what had almost happened.

We should not despair at what happened, but pick ourselves up and move on to the next game. I understand that this is easier said than done, after what went on and the opposition concerned, but these things do happen and we can moan and complain and bitch all we like, but it won't change the result.

There are still 33 Premiership games (and hopefully plenty of cup games) left to play and you can bet that in at least one of those, luck/good fortune/a very dodgy referee decision will be on our side and it will be us singing and dancing, and the other team, moaning, complaining and bitching just like we are all doing now.

We aren't going to go away anymore, that's what Taggart and the likes of Neville, Ferdinand, Scholes and Giggs will find harder and harder to accept.

We're not going away, but Neville Turdinand, "scalper" scholes and giggsy-wiggsy shortly will be, taking the master of arrogance with him. And boy, they do not like the thought of us eclipsing them! Look forward to a long (and bitter) retirment boys.

This was further evidence that we are improving and can challenge the best but our poor standard of defending highlights that we still have a way to go before we can be classed as genuine title contenders. The thing is though that United were no better than us at the back and there defensive frailties were there for all to see. With their mounting debts it was only a biased referee who made things up as he went along and a 35 year old veteran that were the difference between the 2 sides and we will bridge the gap between us and them in double short time once that we tighten things up at the back.
