    should be a good game man u - city, united to win

    Can't see City winning sadly.

    What was Carrick doing?!

    Karate kick from Scholes

    I checked the odds before the game for each player to be sent off. Every player was at 20/1, except for Scholes who was 18/1!

    judging by Rio's reaction I'd say yeah

    Can't believe how quiet it is in here? Where's shauneco or am I in the wrong thread?

    What was the beef? I've only been paying a little attention to the match.

    Well, what a let down Berbatov was. Should have scored but for a good save he didnt.

    Manchester United were poor so Manchester City probably did deserve to win.

    The game was not that good. Lets hope Real Madrid v Barcelona is better.

    not too sure to be honest. Ballotelli's body language was awful all day, think he was moaning about Rio's tackles as well. He probably said something at the end though to get that type of reaction

    Something to do with Balotelli. I am sure it will be all over his Twitter within an hour.

    Utd were really poor. Berbatov should have buried those two shots early on and it would have been a different story. Carrick was awful, and Scholes should know by now that tackles like that have no place in the game

    Exactly on all points. I have slightly amended the Carrick comment.

    Ferdinand had a good game.

    Looking at the reaction - and that of David Platt, it looked like the weirdo probably made a comment to get a reaction and endear him to the Citeh fans.

    Well done Citeh anyway.... I bet 35 years feels like yesterday since the last trophy...... Oh wait! X)

    Must be great on one hand to beat your main rivals and get to a final but to think how poorly you played and how poor you play so often it must gall you a little knowing how bad you are for a team who won the footballing equivalent of the Euro Millions massive jackpot...

    Not really sure where you affinity lies, guessing not in Manchester but no one can take away what happened today.
    Start of season, press, folks saying united playing not as well and winning and they're eulogised we don't play open expansive football but we won, and it's our's to lose now..........no doubt we will and no doubt we'll get an ASBO for being a noisy neighbour but we'll enjoy the bragging rights in the City (see what i did there?) for now

    oh, and as for what happened at the end Daily Telegraph say Mario ran to the (quickly disappearing) united fans and Rio, Anderson didn't like it. Gary Neville anyone? Was ok when he did it?

    Good point!

    Lack of interest or just lack of confidence?

    I don't comment on our games during the match, but usually there are plenty that do - mostly if we're behind obviously! but yes... only Rory seems to have been watching! X)

    Apologies for not knowing your fame then. Hard to be neutral, always one team you favour than another in any sport but i'll take your word for it
