Apparently there might be a pretty big game this coming Sunday. Twitter is alight with news, views and general jibber jabber emanating from the forthcoming Manchester Derby. Some appear more confident than others.
The Manchester City manager, glowering under one of his big scarves, not so much.
For the record, we have the hosts as 5/4 favourites with United the plucky travelling underdogs at 21/10. The skirmishing has already begun of course. Get a load of this passive\aggressive quote from Ryan ‘He’s a nice guy’ Giggs.
Settle down Ryan! Save your vitriol for Sunday! Of course it’s not all angry back and forth, there’s plenty of humour in the build up also.
Cheesy drum roll for Mr Le Tiss please! Before we delve into the really surreal, it must be said, United are facing a bit of an injury crisis ahead of the derby. Although, a number of the below are already noted long-term injury types.
Still, that list would be absolutely crippling for most clubs.
What kind of a match can we expect? If statistics tell us anything, apparently a potentially exciting one.
Well, if that’s the case…
United could get even more exciting in the New Year if this Tweet is to be believed.
Having said that, it could be saying something about Juventus having an Australian entourage, we can’t be 100% sure. Love these last two City related Tweets. First, former City winger Georgi Kinkladze dropped this beautiful nugget in a recent interview.
Then, two former City players walk into a bar…
Of course it isn’t all about the Manchester Derby today. Word has come out that UEFA are planning a massive 2020 Euro Championships, with games all over Europe. There are, to say the least, conflicting opinions on this.
Lineker, as always, holds court on topics of all subject.
No one trick pony, that lad! Winding down now, Cesc Fabregas has an invitation for you
Poor lad must be getting lonely on the Barce bench. Finally well done to Liverpool who qualified for the next stage of the Europa League last night
Jonjo did not, however, get his wish.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the big derby!
