    We aren't a bigger club. We don't have anywhere near as big a fanbase. What we do have is a loyal fanbase who have stuck by the club through thick and the thinnest. If you're going to compare every clubs fanbase to United's then your gonna find a whole lot of small clubs.

    Wouldn't go that far just yet chief, granted you have won a couple of leagues (1 of which we were relieved about!) in our post Fergie depression but we've managed to pick up a few bits and bobs. We're ruddy dull like, certainly not playing totalitarian football like you guys.

    I think Sky sacked him after the 4 - 3 (Owen goal) in the Derby at OT. He just couldn't contain his bitterness any longer. Was a joy to watch. Wish they'd have kept him on though to be fair. I hate the fact that they robbed us of seeing his reaction after we beat them in the Derby & spoilt the party. Would have rivalled the Keegan meltdown for sure.



    This is the official route of the parade. They kept it small for a reason.

    I see the MEN have revised the attendance figures. They were reporting 100K + would be in attendance yesterday. Today they are reporting it as simply thousands. Looking like the full attendance is around 60 - 70K which is probably right.

    Bet they paid some people to come wearing City shirts and stand at the back waving flags.

    You say this like I haven’t regularly been posting on here for years. I didn’t sign up just to tease people, I came on a forum I always visit and came into a thread I always post in.

    But I can see I’ve touched a nerve so we’ll leave it. :)

    Some City fans are bragging about that figure of 100,000. A figure they won’t ever want to mention again if the unthinkable happens and Liverpool get to have a parade.

    feck, City keeps Pep Guardiola until 2021. United need to work harder.

    Pep committing himself to City represents the gauntlet being thrown down to the big clubs,we simply have to respond like never before and meet the challenge head on with every ounce of resource available, £150m in this transfer window absolutely will not be anywhere near enough am afraid!

    New contract is not really news... he only had a year left, he's not exactly going to run down his contract like a player given the shitstorm it would cause.

    18/19 is when Mou breaks him anyway, we'll want to be around to see that

    His salary will increase to £20m-a-year, making him the highest-paid boss in the Premier League and Europe.

    The good thing is that there is a limit to how much they can really improve, unless they get a player of Neymar/Messi quality in.

    It's the likes of Utd who still has a lot of potential to improve the team, not just with transfers. Catching city should definitely be possible, but let's fix our problems this summer. Then we can focus on 1 or 2 signings going forward.

    For that sort of money he will. They can win as many PL titles as they want, but the CL puts you with the elite. Also if he doesn't, then where do City go from there. Pep is the best manager out there.

    Still think they'll be found wanting in Europe.

    We all need Real Madrid's 2011/12 soul to be transferring to 2018-19 United sides to stop Manchester City.

    Jose needs to start antagonizing him at every turn and hopefully drive him out of City the same way he drove him out of Barca.

    He left as he couldn’t cope with the constant war.

    Most definitely. I'm confident we will keep it close next year. Sure half the points deficit was the three losses away to the promoted teams.

    Yh this is how I see it, I still expect them to win next season but I think the difference will be very small. We will definitely be better + it's fairly easy to upgrade some of our players.

    We were excellent (compared to recent years) vs the top 6 this year but let ourselves down vs the newly promoted and bottom half of the table clubs.
