'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Red Report - Bitterness Goes On Against City

Is it just me or is there major repair propoganda going down in the media against the background of City's thrashing of United on Sunday?

I have to say that it has been a day of chuckles as Sky Sports proclaimed that United were back on track after a thoroughly professional performance in beating...wait for it....Aldershot in the Carling Cup.

On Sky News this morning the archetypal red Eamonn Holmes declared that the 3-0 success was the correct type of scoreline and showed just the right amount of class because 'there's no fun in putting five or six past these teams'. Oh is that so Eamonn? Look around Manchester, I mean real Manchester, not Gatley where a Northern Irishman lives who supports....United, who else? What do you see Eamonn? Yes, sir big smiley faces that look as though they have been permanently tattooed below peoples hairlines. Do you not think that is because somebody recently beat one of 'those teams' 6-1 on their own midding?

Are you trying to tell the world that what Manchester City had to offer on Sunday lacked class?

Fast forward to the Manure Evening News, which nowadays comes out in the morning. The heady brown nosing Stretford Stalwarts therein have plastered best part of two pages extolling the virtues of last night's extraordinary win and then two more pages detailing 'Fergie's Haul of Fame' over his 25 years in charge. No mention of Sunday afternoon.

Perhaps it is designed to remind their fans that they do in fact win things and that getting mullered by their noisy neighbours isn't the end of the world. It only looks like it!!

What a total waste of good editorial space. But we do know that the News is overflowing with reds as there is a need to repair their blemished reputation before season ticket sales in Kuala Lumpur take a nose dive, let alone Milton Keynes.

Or is it a genuine reminder that life with Fergie has been a dream for them, before the 'Fergie Out' campaign gets under way?

Indeed if it does then you heard it first from the 3000 smiley faces who sang 'You're getting sacked in the morning' at OLd Trafford last Sunday. Who knows, even Wenger might outlast the man with the red nose.

Wenger's team are slowly getting back into things. Taggarts team are in terminal decline - so yeah, suspect Monsieur Vinaigre might just last a bit longer than the dark lord.
