What a game.

Woop Woop!!

Should have been 2-4 with the Ashley Young disallowed goal that was onside.

United were all over City for the first half, but City really turned the table in the second Half of the Second Half.

And *F* that fan for throwing stuff.

I'm sick & tired of referees bad decisions.It's really hurting the game. 2 disallowed goals in 2 matches in a row. And a 100% correct disallowed penalty kick for Evra.

It's a disgrace.

Don't know how anyone could say it wasn't deserved. The basic fact is it should have been 3-0 and City kicking off 45 seconds after that legit Young goal, not 2-1 and United kicking off. United put 4 good goals past City at home this time.

Not to mention the way some fans behaved, raining missiles down on Rooney at corners, hitting Ferdinand, A City smurf running on to try and start a fight, Balotelli sulking, Tevez kicking out at Jones and a fan arrested for racial abuse. Then even MORE racial abuse directed at Ferdinand on twitter after when he made light of the incident.

United battled through a lot today and I would hope even most City fans would think United deserved it, and be disgusted with the behaviour seen as well.

Only fitting United end our streak at the Etihad. Great derby, thought we would've came out with a draw, but a deflection changed that. Can't wait to meet at OldTrafford..
vulcanproject  +   1158d ago
It is good that United have got a bunch of tough away games out the way now. City, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool.

City of course have no European football which will help a lot after January, and United have a fairly difficult looking run in from April.

United will need to go into that home game ahead of City and probably win it to take the title back.

The City double over United last season really were the games that gave City the title, not least of all the goals. If United pull off the double this time out, I think they will be the ones to win it.

I don't think United deserved the win, City seemed more menacing, and got extremely unlucky 2-3 times, but then again, United was critical in their scoring opportunities. First goal was shit though, honestly. Oh well, 6 points isn't that bad, City needs to regroup and make a comeback like last season.
asmith2306  +   1159d ago
Great game and Utd deserved it in my opinion. It started with Mancini picking Balotelli, why on earth did he do that when he hasn't even had him on the bench for a lot of games this season?? Then he hauls him off at half time anyway, a waste of time. And to be fair, two of Utds goals were helped by City being terrible in defense. Joe Hart could have got to the first goal and Clichy shouldn't have tried to play out of defense. Nasri could have blocked Van Persies goal too. All too often this season, City are their own downfall.

What a game!

United need to stop stopping going for goals even if their 2-1 up.. but RVP i <3 you! :D

Stay classy City...
goku32359  +   1159d ago
Van Persie scores from a Nasri assist! ...wait a minute, when did we go back to 2010?

Anyways, great game. United deserve the win. Young was called offside even though he was onside. I was looking at the stats though and De Gea made 10x the saves as Hart. De Gea getting better and better.
Mozilla89  +   1159d ago
That was a great game but that first goal went in so slowly, I feel like Hart had time to adjust and make the save.
dennett316  +   1159d ago
No way, he was wrong footed by Rooney scuffing the shot slightly. His weight was all on the other side as he thought Rooney would shoot to the left of him. Joe Hart is a top keeper, but once you're on the wrong foot it's very hard to re-adjust.
karim  +   1159d ago
Nasri is one huge sissy. Good game
KingPin  +   1159d ago
that game was good to watch.
when city drew even i almost flipped the coffee table.
thanks to RVP for the winner.

honestly though united were outplayed for some spells of the match, but they should have gotten a penalty when evra went down as well as a goal that ashley young was ruled offside for. but those last minute derby goals are killer, first owen now RVP.

as for the city fans, they should be ashamed of themselves. guess they only classy when they winning. and wtf is up with balotelli, his attitude absolutely sucks. not only does he play like ass, but when he gets subbed, he goes straight to the dressing room. how/why a manager puts up with that is beyond me. and for mancini to say he could be as good as messi and CR7, yeah right. il have whatever his smoking.

"as for the city fans, they should be ashamed of themselves"

For what, letting our Ridiculous homestand come to an end. United has won 1 of the last 3 encounters with city. If we should be ashamed ManU fans should be EMBARRASSED!!

KingPin  +   1159d ago
i was referring to the coin tossing and running onto the field when they knew for sure they were going to lose the match. or do you guys throw coins and run on the field when you celebrating as well?

lolz, but glad you missed my point. you'll be glad to know your city goggles work just fine.
b163o1  +   1158d ago
I seem to remember a derby where CraigBellemy was hit in the head by an object from the stands by United supporters. Like most united supporters you'll seem to forget the past, and turn a blind eye to your own destructive way lmao, united fans are hilarious
KingPin  +   1158d ago
glad you up to speed. welcome back.

yes, i recall that incident as well. dont think i was a proud supporter of that kind of behavior. i wasn't, im against all negative behavior to all players not just united ones. stop trying to defend such pathetic actions.

you say united fans are hilarious and then you go on and give us something to laugh about.

out of bubbles and cares.
Prophet112  +   1158d ago
Typical Man City, throwing money at all their problems.
asmith2306  +   1158d ago
Why should the City fans be ashamed of themselves? A bunch of idiots ruined it for the rest in which was a great atmosphere. You can't paint all fans with the same brush when these fools do things like this.
FootballZilla  +   1159d ago
Great enjoyable game...
AcceptedWalnut  +   1159d ago
I'm not even annoyed at losing the game, more the fact how we lost it. Careless from Clichy (smash it into row z if need be) and then idiotic from Tevez.

I knew what was coming as soon as RVP was stood over the ball, how many times do Utd score late goals in derbies.

Also, that fan needs to take a hard look at himself, theres no place in football for that kind of shit.

Ah well, 6 point lead now but then again, it was an 8 point lead last season and we all know what happened there :D
dennett316  +   1159d ago
United will get some defensive cover in January...I don't think there'll be a collapse like last year (at least I hope not). Was a damn good game though, and good to see City fans slamming that idiot that almost blinded a man...agreed, no place for that.
Abdou23  +   1159d ago
Vidic should be ready for next match. But i say snub that useless Evans and bring someone like Shawcross or Mats Hummels.

With City out of the CL and Utd still going in it that could favour City in the long run in for the league. Should be another cracking end to a great season.

Only Ferdinand is stupid enough to gloat to the losing team like that and not expect anyone to launch stuff at him... Class A idiot.
dennett316  +   1159d ago
No, the idiot is the moron that threw the coin. Players are allowed to celebrate all they like, fans can give them all the abuse they like, but throwing stuff with intent to injure is simply not excusable. You fail for even trying to defend it.
Series_IIa  +   1159d ago
Defending what exactly, for 2 people acting like kids?

Both are stupid, would you do that knowing tension is high?

FIFA have been trying to cut down on showboating and excessive celebrations to the opposite teams for that exact reason, tension rises people go into cry baby mode and resort to throwing things.

You do that in Rugby you are instantly put in the sin bin.

Now Man City will go and buy another set of superstars in January, messing up the market even further.

Ronaldo is priced at 120 million. right now city must be thinking thats a bargain buy.
chukamachine  +   1159d ago
I think UTD played well in patches, but overall city played the better football and could have won it. The freekick deflection was very lucky.

The skill on the line that was called for going over the line, when it was nowhere near was bad decision.

But the game could have gone either way, not sure why city started with ballotelli when tevez is the better player.
Dungus  +   1158d ago
I see the fans are also throwing money at their problems...
Thefreeman012  +   1158d ago
Hahaha that's a plus one for you sir
Thefreeman012  +   1158d ago
Maybe football needs to place plexiglass like the nhl or something to prevent stupid fans acting out like this
Kos-Mos  +   1158d ago
Not only the fans of shitty, but players like ballotelli, tevez, toure, nasri acts like children. Classless. Glory glory. Divine justice today.
