Should We Blues Gloat?

Should We Blues Gloat?

For over 20 years our friends and neighbours at Manchester United have lived the dream but is their dream turning into a nightmare and should we Blues gloat?

Three 2-1 defeats in a row, League Cup Semi-Final against Sunderland, FA Cup Third Round against Swansea and the Premier League defeat against Tottenham will send shivers up and down the necks of the United board. Only last night live TV pictures showed Sir Alex, Bobby Charlton and Bryan Robson leaving the Sunderland Directors box shaking their heads in bewilderment.

Being a Manchester City supporter since the 1970's the rollercoaster ride of being a Blue has taken its toil. I can remember when I would wake up in the middle of the night suffering from cold sweats or kicking the dog (metaphorically speaking) following a dire performance and defeat.

The following clip was posted on YouTube by a United fan following United's defeat against Swansea a few days ago.

Nothing wrong with giving our Stretford neighbours a bit of stick, after al, we've put up with their ***** for years. But gloating isn't pretty or nice and is something that is best left to them. FWIW, I can see them improving once RVP and Shrek are fit again, so it's probably a bit premature to laugh at them anyhow. Enjoy those meltdown moments, but we're better than them, let's show it!

A wry smile until seasons end. Then, perhaps we can gloat.

Gloating is never attractive & as fifth has said, it ain't over yet. Now schadenfreude is an entirely different matter.....

Shocking language from that upset Stretford there. Much as their traditional strong second half of the season myth has been exposed again, we should certainly in the main keep the focus firmly upon what we do and see where it takes us. But there is no harm whatsoever in giving it to their one billion worldwide fan base. After all, they were hitting the airwaves drooling and foaming en masse when City fell two goals behind at the home of the European champions....and that's just the tip of the Glazer iceberg.

Maybe we should take this time to be humble in victory and show them how to behave like a true champion. Leave all the petty gloating nonsense to them! Show our class!
