 Man City 3-1 Man Utd

Day 647
Melbourne, Australia
15th January 2006
What a start to the new year, My first derby on my big screen. Scott, who I work with and also in a band called Stroll came round to watch the game and we did not disappoint.

Albert Riera did a great job on the left of City's midfield and Manchester City took the derby-day honours with 3 goals.



Trevor Sinclair put City ahead with a neat turn and shot after Joey Barton's cross was not properly cleared, and a cool Darius Vassell finish made it 2-0. Robbie Fowler can on and made sure of the win in injury time when he smashed home a third, I bet he will be having a great night tonight knowing his hatred for united. Ronaldo deserved to be sent off for his reckless lunge at Cole, it reminded me of the Keane incident.



  1. What a fantstic game and performance.It was all about atitude and we showed the the right one.A great and fitting birthdy present for Tal.If only he had a birthday every week.Someone in this house(not me) had a bet on City 3-1 and is walking around the house with bulging pockets.It won't last long though.!!!!
