Jim, I’m totally with you on that one, pal.19th August 2018 at 6:53 pm #25441nine nine nineModerator733 pts
gj, I get that mate I’ve even read Manchester United Ruined My Life by Colin Shindler.?19th August 2018 at 7:08 pm #25442MikusParticipant186 pts
If there was more decorum shown by the top brass at these clubs, perhaps they’d be less traffic generated by these reactions. I seem
to remember Fergie brandishing City a small club some years ago (whilst attacking Benitez for referring to Everton in the same terms). Even when City got taken over, I think Fergie remarked that “there they are (City), still languishing in mid table”. Fans don’t forget these things.19th August 2018 at 7:15 pm #25443Big JimSpectator183 pts
That’s a good book that nine. Interestingly i think Shindler initially said he had fallen out of love with City whem they got taken over and found new found wealth. I wonder if he thinks the same now?19th August 2018 at 7:37 pm #25445
Jose can be a prize plum. But do you blame him for retaliating? He has practically not said a word about City since joining United, yet all they have shown is disrespect towards him and Manchester United. You release a documentary after having a spectacular season, yet you still cannot stop talking about your neighbors. This is the same club who bought confetti to Old Trafford last season in order to celebrate a win. United won the league at City’s ground in 2007 and walked off the pitch without overly celebrating. No confetti or loud music.
So in this aspect Jose is bang on the money. Lack of class certainly by City.19th August 2018 at 7:40 pm #25446Brian blueParticipant239 pts
Well if Jose thinks we are classless he needs to watch MotD to night to see how classless we are, none more so than our “veterans” to day Kompany and Silva who rightly was awarded MotM. Wonderful to watch19th August 2018 at 7:53 pm #25450
Well like you guys have been preaching, if City cannot take it, they should not be dishing it out.19th August 2018 at 8:11 pm #25453
Exactly what have City dished out?19th August 2018 at 8:19 pm #25455
The veil digs during the documentary, the confetti at Old Trafford last season, the petty 2-1 signs from various players in the tunnel after the win. If you want to go further back, how about the welcome to Manchester sign, your CEO saying when and not if we beat Manchester United during the league cup semi final all those years ago, lets not forget the degrading Munich mocking chants by your fans. I see they have gone quiet since the new ownership.19th August 2018 at 8:26 pm #25457
I also read up that during this 8 part documentary, Manchester United or anything related to the club are mentioned every 3 minutes and 20 seconds, whilst City are said every 2 minutes and 40 seconds. That is a 40 second difference of mentioning your own club and your rivals.
Not sure if that is accurate, but blimey that is obsession if it is true. I am going to be honest, if that is true then it sums things up. It shows the level you need United to endorse yourselves even when United are at their lowest in years. I mean this whole documentary has been endorsed on what Pep/City said about United and Jose. It is like your PR team needed that just to get people to watch it as you could not do it on your own.19th August 2018 at 8:34 pm #25459
You need to be very careful what you say, pal, especially about the Munich chants. I’ve not heard anything about that for at least thirty years, and I go to every home game and a lot of away games.
And I suppose United are ‘whiter than white’ eh? Hillsborough ring any bells.19th August 2018 at 8:40 pm #25461nine nine nineModerator733 pts
Guys let’s not let things get out of hand all best left there now before someone says something they might regret tomorrow.
