Usual Rag Suspects Give City Team Talk

Usual Rag Suspects Give City Team Talk

Nobby Allcock and Eric Whiteside learnt from the very best. Modern era 'MU' is all about being smug and the rags do it better than anyone on the footballing planet...

Taggart was first up, leading the way in the run up to the League Cup Semi Final 1st leg at Eastlands.

After previously slating 'liddle ciddy' this season and boasting that FourThreeGate should have finished 6-0, he's got his is excuses in early, but at the same time will have dismayed Manchester football fans in arrogantly dismissing the Manchester derby as second best to that of Glasgow:

'You have to recognise they are a competitor now. We have had to wait a long time for it to be like that but they are obviously making a much better fist of their league programme this year than they have done in the past.

'You could not compare it to Rangers and Celtic but having rivals in the same city does create far more emotion.'

Following in his mentor's whisky fuelled slipstream, demented 97th minute 'substitute warm up' specialist Gary 'Chuckle' Neville couldn't resist chiming in with his usually bi-annual nonsense. This time around a good dose of arslikhan over the rags failure to be able to afford Carlos Tevez:

'The manager over the years has made many decisions with regard to players coming and going and he has almost always been proved correct.

'Over a period of 20 years he may have got one or two wrong and I think he has admitted that himself, but he knows exactly what he's doing and he understands when a player's time is up. I can't disagree with his decision on Tevez.'

All well and predictably boring but "superstar" input has arrived from Italy via the United States in an all time classic quote. One David Beckham indulges in typical buffoonery which can be best described as thick in his dismissal of City.

He conveniently forgets the times that the rags, once unrivalled in the transfer market have repeatedly broken the transfer record on their way to success. He squeaked to rag propagandists The Daily Mirror:

'City will never be bigger than United. Being successful and one of the most recognised clubs in the world doesn't come from the money. It's about history.

'I'd never sign for Manchester City. It doesn't matter about money, it's always about loyalty. United are the team I supported and the team I played for and I just couldn't bring myself to sign for City.'

Final word goes to Patrice Evra, usually a bit less concieted than the average rag.

He rolls out the tired line that playing the rags is always City's cup final. Dead right, pal. It's the Manchester derby.

"It's an important game against City, a big game, but I only talk about it because I want to win this game and have a chance to win a trophy. Maybe that's the difference between Manchester United and Manchester City: we play the game to win and to win the Carling Cup, they play to win against Manchester United."

Keep it coming rags and please Taggart, select Neville tonight!!

Its the typical head in the sand reaction by the rags and most of the english media. Becks speaks about loyalty and not being money movitated but hes playing in america for £300k a week?!? Neville is deluded. He will get hammered tonight. United are in the **** with their crippling debt and deep down everyone at old trafford knows it! Flamini on the way to city on loan. I think it could be a good deal.

Lets take money and footy out of the Beckham equation, what type of man do you now see? I see a man who very publicly cheated on his wife with AT LEAST one grubby whore, a man who is content to see his wife go through a 15-20 year eating disorder (which must be hell, whatever you think of her) because he believes it helps project a certain image, a man who spends his precious spare time not enjoying his childrens company but roving round the world as some sort of unofficial ambassador for UK sport or watching the Lakers, a man who soon will drag his kids, who are virtually Americans, to another country in search of another hit, a man who slags off a team who play some 300 miles from where he was born at every 'opportunity' ......... I could go on. Ladies and gentlman, I give you David Beckham.
