It seems as though everyday we’re reading different quotes coming from the Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson regarding his neighbours Manchester City.
With Mark Hughes spending millions of pounds already this summer on players like Gareth Barry and Emmanuel Adebayor, it appears to me as though Ferguson is beginning to worry about the threat City could pose next season. When asked about the recent poster that popped up in Manchester (I’m sure you’ve all seen it, the one with Tevez) the Scotsman had this to say :
“It’s City isn’t it? They’re a small club with a small mentality. All they can talk about is Manchester United; they can’t get away from it. They think taking Carlos Tevez away from Manchester United is a triumph. It is poor stuff.”
First of all Fergie, City clearly aren’t a small club anymore and second of all, signing Carlos Tevez is a pretty big deal no matter what club you are. There is no doubt that Ferguson is a terrific manager, however when he starts coming out with the kind of crap he has been coming out with in recent days, it really does irritate me.
As a City fan myself, in the words of the great Kevin Keegan, “I would love it if we beat them, love it.”
