First Zlatan Ibraegovic decided to send City new boy Bravo, United training gear welcoming the Goalkeeper to Manchester but, someone forgot to tell Zlatan the not so magnificent that he and his club are in the Borough of Trafford.
Then came Peter Schmeichel dismissing Pep Guardiola's achievements thoughtout his career, now we all know Schmeichel has no love for Manchester City after we dumped his Son Kasper instead of Joe Hart but, this is what he had to say, "With Pep, he comes in with an incredible reputation. What he did with Barcelona was fantastic, his work was fantastic, but he was also very lucky he had the players to bring in the philosophy that he has in football."
He also claimed speaking to Omnisport that City boss Pep promotes a “boring” style of football.
I wonder what he has to say now about Guardiola beating his beloved United with the best football England have seen from an English club to date, only 4 games into the season with a squad of players who have barely got to grips with Peps philosophy. In a country alien to Pep, in a league Pep had no experience in until now, 4 games unbeaten and top of the league?
Then Dwight Yorke, "It's very difficult to call this game at this moment in time but I feel Sergio Aguero's suspension will be a big blow for City, although they still have plenty of quality players to come in there.
"Despite that, with the game being played at Old Trafford, I just feel United have the edge over City."
Yeah OK, first thing I said when we found out Sergio was going to be banned, after Marriner lied and said he didn't see the incident. Was that Manchester City are a different beast with out Aguero, that we still have Kelechi Iheanacho.
Next was Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon's turn, "It will be a great duel between those two. Perhaps Mourinho is favourite because United have more history compared with Man City."
Apparently history wins you games, titles and trophies?
Then came Zlatan Ibraegovic's agent Mino Raiola, "Everyone knows I don't like him. I like people who have a different character to Guardiola. I don't hate him... because hate consumes you. But I don't like him. He's a good coach but his football is a bit boring to me."
When asked if the two would work together, Raiola’s response was scathing. "Me, I'm a professional, I want to do the best for my clients. He? He doesn't have the balls to sit down with me."
This person clearly has an ego like his client, likes to think of himself as a member of a Mafia, wellard.
Then there was Paul Merson, "I expect Man Utd to just pip this game without Aguero."
Say no more.
Ex Rag Andy Cole was up next, he predicted United would win 2-1? Oops, right score line, wrong team Mr Cole.
After which there was wait for it? Mark Lawrenson, "It is strange that one of the world’s wealthiest clubs allowed Wilfried Bony to join Stoke on loan on deadline day without replacing him, which reduced their options further.
"At the start of the season I wondered what would happen if Aguero does not play, and we are about to find out.
"Looking at the game, the biggest difference between the two teams is that Manchester United can change things around with their strikers if they have to.
"Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both have pace to burn through the middle if it is not working for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
"Because of that, I am going to go for United win. I don’t think City will be able to hold out for 90 minutes."
I mean can you actually believe these halfwit idiots get paid to give their opinions? He talks up Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
Yet claims Kelechi Iheanacho is young and inexperienced? The same Iheanacho who out scored both Martial and Rashford last season FROM THE BENCH, the same Iheanacho who had the best goal ratio IN EUROPE last season FROM THE BENCH.
The moron thought it was a bad move that we off loaded Wilfried Bony, that striker of ours who Manuel Pellegrini kept playing at the expense of you got it, Kelechi Iheanacho. Wilfried Bony that striker who barely ever scored a goal for us, 4 I think in total wasn't it last season?
Then Zlatan Ibrahimovic hailed his boss Mourinho as a 'mastermind'.
Then bone head Wrestler Dave Bautista claimed "Manchester City are going to get smashed but wait for it?"
Based on the fact a lot of his friends are United fans, well maybe you need to trade those fans in for new ones Mr Bautista because your United fans seem to be rubbing off on you, not good lmao.
Then onto Twitter, @UnitedStandMUFC declares "Zlatan declares War on Manchester City"
On the eve of Derby day the Family of Man Utd Legend Sir Matt Busby was told to 'Move on' as Club Reclaimed Directors' Box seats and removed Sir Matt Busby's chair plaque.
@ManU_FCFans claimed "Manchester United finally have a team to beat Pep Guardiola thanks to Jose Mourinho ."
Robbie Savage "Manchester City will always live in United's shadow." Really?
FootballTransferTaverns George Dagless claimed "Our landlord thinks it could be curtains for City too if the Red Devils get their system right and reckons this 4-2-3-1 should get the result their fans want."
I think that websites writers are just a little bit cookoo, not all there because they keep banging on about the Landlord and the fans in their non existent transfer tavern. I usually avoid the site but I thought I'd give it a quick visit on Derby day. George Dagless's precise words were, "4-2-3-1: This Man Utd Line Up WILL DESTROY Guardiola's Man City on Saturday."
@Vintage_ZlatanQaim Suhail added, "I wonder which City defenders career will Rashford end next Saturday."
@Qaimsuhail8 Replied, "Zabaleta."
Excuse me while my jaw aches from laughter.
The Internet is full of their arrogance for all to see but I'll end it with,
Zlatan Ibrahimovic sends Claudio Bravo some training gear before the Manchester Derby 😂 pic.twitter.com/6RxnR5hAEj— United Peoples TV (@UnitedPeoplesTV) September 7, 2016
@UnitedPeoplesTV @CopyOfOne shots fired. Dont you just love Zlatan. Now this is tbe sort of mentality thats been missing in the team #MUFC— Afamefuna Ogbonna (@Ogbonna1989) September 7, 2016
Shots fired? more like Backfired.
So much for their £100 million Paul Pogba, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne had him in their back pockets.
Iheanacho proved his doubters wrong, though still probably be dismissed as all our players do. This Derby triumph was more for our Sergio than anyone else, lets hope he comes back stronger and takes the Golden Boot from under every ones nose, then lets see him snubbed again for Player of the Season.
