Derby Build Up: Kolo Toure has been recalling his battles against Our Malc's Evil Empire and reckons City offer him the opportunity for personal revenge this Saturday...
Vincent Kompany's right hand man knows exactly what it is like to go unbeaten for so long as the rags have done this season before suddenly tasting defeat.
It was the rare sight of a dodgy Old Trafford penalty in October 2004 that saw Arsenal's 'Invincibles' (including Toure) head for defeat following an unprecedented unbeaten run and City's central defender knows all too well the subsequent psychology involved:
'When you are on a good run like that and you lose, everything becomes harder. It shakes your confidence. Maybe that can happen to them. It was difficult to lose that game. The circumstances were hard because they got a penalty, which we didn't think was a penalty. For us, it was really difficult to lose to United...I think Saturday a great chance for me to get my revenge.'
Toure clearly senses that opportunity knocks for The Blues:
'I have spent most of my career in England battling United, first at Arsenal, now at City. They are always at the top. Now we have new players, we are capable of fighting against them and that has been shown with our results against them over the last 18 months.'
DERBY DAY ON VMC:
Head for the VMC Match Day Experience Forum for the build up and beyond to the biggest game of the season so far against the rags at the swamp. Join us as we brace ourselves for another wave of the traditional horrible smugness that only rags can serve up with such toe curling aplomb.
