Rag Week:Lids Humiliation To Force Taggart Rethink

Rag Week:Lids Humiliation To Force Taggart Rethink



The arrogant stance that has had Sir Alex Ferguson crowing for a fortnight about how he'd be taking on MCFC with his kids on Wednesday night will now be almost certainly reversed...

City and united will soon go head to head in the Carling League Cup Semi-Final 1st leg at The City of Manchester Stadium.

Now eliminated from the FA Cup by third tier Leeds in embarrassing circumstances where the rags 'Thanks for 1 million' Eric Cantona banners were suddenly nowhere to be seen when the whistle finally blew in the 96th minute, the clash with City takes on a whole new meaning.

Taggart knows that he dare not risk further upsetting the day trippers with a second abject cup competition surrender to bitter rivals within the same week, despite the fact that Berbaflop, Potato Head, Giggs, Valencia and even Tiny Tim putting in a seasonal appearance could not break down the Leeds defence.

The humiliated rag manager told the pisspoor MUTV:

'We have to get this result out of our system as quickly as possible.

'We have a semi-final on Wednesday and a lot of these players won't be playing. You have to view this performance in the right light.

'We'll make sure we're ready for Wednesday now.

'We had a team in mind, but there will maybe be a few changes for that.'


This is fantastic news for a resurgent City squad and support desperate to get at the rags fuelled by that ludicrous 97th minute 4-3 derby defeat last September. One of only two defeats shipped by The Blues all season.

Come on Taggart and The Glazers, bring on your bank bond bungling rags at full strength. We are seriously up for this one.

Haha, I was waiting for some taunt from you lot. Nice one, though. You heard what he had to say, did'nt you? He said that 5 minutes of ET was a disgrace!!!!

Whiskynose bonus: "The referee gives five minutes of injury time and it's an insult to the game. I don't know why they get divested with the authority to keep time when it's hard enough to keep track of the game. It's an insult to the players out there."

Still don't think it will be a full-strength squad, but I reckon it'll be closer to that than his usual under-12's he fields for this competition. Bring it on Taggart, I for one cannot wait.

Fergie was entirely correct 5 minutes of extra time was an insult to the game, as there should have been a maximum of 3 minutes. Oh, and it's most unusual for fergie to be so hypocritical in the press. Isn't it? :¬)

Quote from todays Sunday Mirror "The United boss told the Sunday Mirror: "We certainly won't be picking our team because City are picking their strongest team. "We've used the Carling Cup as a route for young players and they've all done well over the last few years. I don't see the need to change that policy." I think that he will pick his strongest side possible as this might end up being their only way into Europe now!!!!! Are we seeing the end of their dominating the English game as they can't afford to buy the best players anymore? Taggart to resign and Hughes to take over?

Was listening to TotalFootball on KEY 103 Radio and all te Rags were slating Fergie for his team selection. It was hilarious.

Also, good to see loads of empty seats at United after about 80 mins of play. You're there to watch the football not to get home!
