Only 1 stat which matters and that is 2-1, come on City see the job through!
Kevinho
Totally agreed Kevinho. My pulse is just beginning to return to normal. Awesome game.
Tudor
My Mrs couldn't take her eyes off the game, and she's really only getting into the whole City-thing. Can you imagine what I, am us VMC folk are like?
BlueWolfie
My Mrs watched the first half befoe going to work and she couldn't keep her eyes off the TV. And she hates football. The tide is turning chaps - the tide is turning.
Tudor
I need a lie down after that... I may as well just go to bed ^o^
eighthsin
Same here - missus watched the whole match with me - and was cheering in the dying minutes when rags fail to equalise - not sure if i have finallly made her a City fan? more likely she was happy to see me not to go into intloelrable depression
flinty123city
Looking at the new front page poll, I bet that Ferguson will be on a park bench somewhere with a bottle and a brown paper bag right this minute!
Kevinho
Chelsea fan here.....I really hate UTD and rooted for you guys. Must say I was furious about the 5min added time.....where did that come from? Disgusting.
atomis
5mins got addid on cause the city fans wouldnt pass the ball back u idiot, didnt u watch the match?
Blitz
It tool less than 30 seconds to retrieve the ball Blitz. So whose the idiot NOW?
Tudor
Not atall.. and with 5/6 subs hmm im sure thats 5mins, and before anyone says anythink No im not a Utd fan. I didnt really mind who won today.
Blitz
That happened the grand total of twice... once took about 15 seconds and the second time they were making a sub anyway. If United aren't winning against us they always get 5 minutes though so it was expected.
MCFC_Goatboy
Got up at 3.00am to watch the game - at 3.30 i wished i had stayed in bed. Great result in the end and i thought Given was awesome but you can't take it away from the little fella (Tevez)
Thaibluefan
Not City's best performance but they still won, what does that tell you about Manure's game? Pressure is now on for Bacon Face and his bunch of Rags who must win next week. I'm likin our chances.
bluesnozza
what does that tell you about Manure's game? Hmm if u lose the next 5 games, you would wont him sacked, stop gettin ahead of urselfs
Blitz
Watch your mouth Blitz.....you dont want me to teach you a lesson kid. No matter what UTD always get extra added time....especially when not winning....can you refute that?
atomis
Now then, Blitz, what's the story with you? Arsenal? Spurs?
Johnny Baguette
What if we win our next 10 games? Does that make him the best manager in the league? Nothing wrong with being confident and believing in your team. Blitz I'm a realist mate, I'm not interested in your negativety.
bluesnozza
Hes not spurs most of us hate utd
jljyid
My head hurts and my throat's a bit croaky this morning I can tell you! Job half done, a patched up City team vs a virtually full manure squad, yet we still won! Nice to see Gary Chuckle react with all the class we know he posseses. 5 Minutes? It was obviously one for each of the offsides the linesman on our side ignored when the rags were attacking, just thankful nothing came of it. Off to the swamp to put another nail in manure's coffin.
fifthcolumnblue
i.ve just checked Blitz' ip address, it's come up as Haiti, so i assume he's a scouser, apparently 2 plane full of volunteers have left john lennon airport to fly out to haiti to help with the looting
ten men
That Ip adress thing you used must really suck tbh, Anyways i live in Birmingham and im a AstonVilla fan :) I dont mind you guys, The only team i hate is LIVERPOOL! Grr.. Im just sayin it haw it is. + Atomis ur a funny dude (Watch ur mouth kid) LOL Anyways good luck in the 2nd leg,
Blitz
Blitz...go and shove your head up your arse you TOOL
bluemooner_mcfc
