Rag Players Literally Bricking It?

Rag Players Literally Bricking It?



Sir Alex Ferguson today revealed that the rumours of illness swirling around the basins of united's Carrington training camp hold water...

In an unprecedented Derby eve confession, the jovial Scot told his usual fawning press pack that he has 'no idea where to begin with his team.'

Time and again in previous seasons along the decades Taggart has announced in the run up to a derby that numerous key players will not make the game, only for crestfallen City fans to see all the big guns rolled out and playing like there's no tomorrow.

Bearing this in mind, it would be no surprise to see Potato Head, Giggsy and Nani taking to the Eastlands field tomorrow night.

The only dead cert in this Blue's book is that Owen Hargreaves, 'The English Patient' who hobbled off again at the weekend is out.

That said, if he is trying the old mind games on yet again, it's well worth reminding him that one of the biggest factors in City's resurgence is that we no longer fear anyone and on our day can beat any side.

However, Nani included, Scholesy, Dimitar Berbaflop and Elbows Vidic are alleged to have been involved in a gastro virus inspired few days of musical toilet seats as their date with City's giant populated side draws closer.

Taggart bemoaned:

'We've still got players out with flu and some were sent home yesterday so we're not in a great position at the moment...We are counting heads at the moment.'

Planet Blue will believe it when they see it, but in the meantime, the touchline chewing washing machine impersonator has again acknowledged his 'noisy neighbour's' relentless presence:

'Now the game between ourselves and City is one of great intensity...It's built up by the media explosion around what City are doing and trying to achieve in their own way and the fact we're both in the same city.'

- Well not quite your Lordship, but Welcome To Manchester again anyway.

THE MANCHESTER DERBY ON VMC:



Head for the VMC Match Day Experience Forum for the build up and beyond to City's crunch clash with the rags.

Guys, we're banking on you. Not just for the league table, but because of the sheer arrogance of the United fans. Oh boy, they wound me up so much yesterday that I've been gnashing my teeth ever since. You guys HAVE to beat them, HAVE to humiliate them, HAVE to thrash them proper! I'll be rooting for you guys tomorrow, don't disappoint me!

Adebayor won't be playing mate, he's got a calf injury. But as we're on the subject of goals, how about Turdinand OG, Scholes sent off, 2 for Tevez and one for Silva? Smell the fear dude, smell the fear.

If they're not ill now then they will be Thursday morning when they get a dressing down from bacon face. All this hatred of us is doing my nut. People should hate United. They're the ones people should have beef with.

I think bassmentos must have eaten a biz mento by the sound of it (parp) I remember when we were much the underdogs at Maine Road without an Englishman in the side fearing the worst and we came up trumps (no pun fergie) Whilst I never take utd for granted with or without the bacon virus I'm certainly not cacking it

Utd have a very poor team this year on paper and city match utd in every position at the moment so if i was putting my money on anyone it would be city tommorow, the only chance of utd winning is if city play poorly and mess it up on the big day.

Alternatively Pavfc, if we get a spineless ref that allows the rags to do whatever the hell they want (seen a few of those before) they just might get something out of this game.

^ which we have a tendency of doing. My nerves are on edge again at derby day, whenever it seems we are in an advantageous position we mess it up.

Lies are so entrenched in the everyday life of this idiot that he doesn't even know what he's saying these days. Absolute k.n.o.b.h.e.a.d.

True FCB but if your team plays as well as they can then the referee's impact should have little to do with the game and you can beat them 11v11.
