It's funny to see how city have become the exact model of everything they always pretended to despise. Basically buying their way through everything with a giant bulldozer of cash.

But the danger for United is falling into the Liverpool-shaped trap of ending up sobbing in a corner, clinging to a photo of Ferguson and rabbiting on about history.

Great. We haven't had a "City's academy is brilliant and United's is shit and all the local kids are being given city babygrows in the maternity wards" thread in a while.

Isn't that just because if they were at United they'd be teacher's pets?

you cant avoid the results from the derby games but I thought this was bullshit.

Ten years ago all our kids were in Manchester United or Liverpool shirts,” says Matt Wackett, who coaches the under-fives, sixes and sevens at Egerton Football Club in Cheshire, just south of Manchester's urban sprawl. “Now most of the kids are in Manchester City shirts.


My 3 lads play and train at different clubs and at the training it is still all united shirts. The eldest lad had a trial at Rochdale last week and it was 80% united shirts. City are signing all the players to avoid them going elsewhere. The proof of the pudding will be to see how many of the academy will make it through to the first team.

Unlikely I'd have thought, if you are good enough you are good enough? says more about the academy (imo obviously)

You have to hand it to City for regenerating a complete and utter shithole. However, the grass roots myth is completely dead on it's arse.

What does this even mean? It's complete and utter nonsense yet this tripe is trotted out on a regular basis.
