I’d take Pogba, Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford, Ronaldo, Sancho, Varane and Shaw if they were available for the right price. They’re all decent players.

They are a squad of individuals who are being chronically mismanaged. I remember a lot of the criticisms aimed at their players were aimed at Stones, Cancelo, Gundogan, Sterling and Mahrez etc not too long ago.

I’m just happy that they haven’t got a manager in the same ilk of Pep or Klopp etc, even someone like Potter or Rodgers would make them a dangerous side. Long may Ole continue!
36hrs later & hardly a “nibble” hmmm??

There’s merit in reflecting upon this outstanding win, in the context of the 6-1 from 10 years ago.

The 6-1 was a beautiful moment in time, sending a powerful message that we noisy neighbours were here to stay.

The game on the weekend said so much more. It signified the progress we have made both on and off the pitch. It showed that the gap between the two clubs has become wider, and that steady and astute leadership in all aspects of our business produces quality on the pitch.

The humiliation which we inflicted on them was even more powerful than the 6-1. Their ‘fan base’ had to suffer us playing like it was a training exercise. Their ‘leadership’ had to endure our wonderful travelling fans mocking them endlessly.

It was a moment where they collectively knew that it might take a decade for them to catch up to us, and I’m sure they were thinking they may never catch up.

So well done City. We put the building blocks in place to ensure ongoing success. The rabble down the road don’t even know where to start.

I agree that the pisscan is a cancerous piss stain on that odious club.

However, they are light-years away from challenging for anything of significance. The rodents have had three decent managers since the old fool stepped down and the board have spent one billion pounds.

If the rags were ever going to get into a serious title challenge it would have happened by now. The problem the Salford red socks have got is that they haven't got a clue who or what they are anymore.

The broadcasting media and TV pundits dish out the same old tired rhetoric of how an institution like theirs should be fighting on all fronts. However, if you take away the rags back story you're left with an insipid group of mercenaries playing mediocre football with a disproportionate amount of fans (hanger on's).
All reminds me of when Matt Busby moved upstairs at the swamp, history repeating itself.
