Derby Day!

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Assalamu'alikum, dudes and dudettes!

It's here.  Finally! D-Day! Derby Day! Manchester Derby that is.....


Since Sheikh Mansour's taking over of city, 14 Manchester derbies took place and United won 9 of them and lost 4 and drew 1.  The last Manchester derby last year, United showed what colour Manchester is by winning 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium when Robin Van Persie score that dramatic late free kick.  Here it is.....


Manchester United, BPL league leaders are now 15 points ahead of their arch rivals, Manchester city who are 2nd in the table.

United have quite an advantage at the top and also with heavy artillery as Nemanja Vidic, Rafael da Silva, Wayne Rooney, Johnny Evans and Paul Scholes are said to be fit for this clash of titans.

city also have some fire power as Samir Nasri and David Silva are also returning based on the physioroom website.

This will be a mouthwatering affair.  To be honest though, city are NOTHING without the money they have. United on the other hand has history and are still making history.  We have 19 Premiere League titles (with another one coming our way), 3 Champions League titles, 3 FA Cups and they are the only English club that have won the FIFA Club World Cup.

Not only that.  Wayne Rooney, Man United's no. 10, won the best goal of the 20 Premiere League seasons.  And guess who he scored it against....man city!!!


And 10 years before Wazza (Wayne Rooney), David Beckham got the best goal of 10 Premiere League seasons for his audacious goal against Wembley in 1996 where he lobbed the ball over the keeper from the middle of the pitch.

A lot of this prove that MANCHESTER IS RED...............


But let just see tonight eh?  A little bit of rivalry every now and then is always good now innit?  We'll see.  I know I said this a lot but this is just a reminder....

In Sya-Allah, I will be live tweeting the Manchester Derby, Manchester United vs city, live at Old Trafford from my house.  However, I'm not really sure about the time.  On the internet it says 2 a.m but in the Astro guide says at 3 a.m.  So either or, people.  You can catch the clash on channel 812 on Fox Sports or 832 on Fox Sports HD.

See you guys on the flip side!!

P.S: Glory glory Man united!
