One-Sixers Face City Juggernaut Away In FA Cup
Sir Alex Ferguson and his misfiring squad have been forced to enter the city walls in January and Fortress Etihad for a potentially explosive FA Cup 3rd Round clash...
The situation is intriguingly poised.
The rags will go into the New Year knowing they are a game away from going out of both domestic cups and psychologically will be in bits the moment the first wave of City attacks comes in. This is the last fixture Taggart needed.
On the other side of the divide, City know that this is nowhere near the ideal fixture to chuck into an already challenging domestic January.
But the thought of hammering that lot again with more decades old payback is something to be savoured.
Happy Christmas Fergie....
