Disgraced former French captain Patrice Evra is reknowned in la republique for having a mouth bigger than the channel tunnel and he hasn't disappointed ahead of the derby...
The 29 year old who may never represent his country again after leading a shameful players strike at last summer's World Cup is hysterically out of touch with the more cautious approach of Taggart's old guard.
But his comments are absolutely in line with the rag menatlity of arrogance and smugness that we've suffered from for decades:
'They always say that they are bigger than us and they never beat us. If we win it's a good result for Manchester United. But it will be normal, it will not be so special.'
Clearly Evra failed to absorb the panic that gripped Stretford and the Home Counties when it became clear that City were closing in on united's League Cup last season. The outpouring of relief and celebration that we witnessed from the rags was unprecedented at the final whistle.
'We need to win every game now. We don't just need to win against City, we are looking to win the league. When we start the season we think about winning every game. I can say it would be nice to beat City because it's a special game, it's the derby and everyone wants to win. But it's not the priority. The priority is to win the league but make sure we don't lose the derby.'
City all talk? Evra and company are all City talk. Keep 'em coming rags. We only need Gary Chuckle this week and we've got the full set.
