Manchester City Message Board
All credit to City for a result that probably had football bets around the country torn up; 4-1 was a bit too long, surely!
Looking at the formation and how it played on the pitch, you have to day that the tactics of defense-first, inviting utd's attackers forward was a bit dodgy, to say the least.
The best passage of play was after the goal; all lines were pushed forward and utd looked #$%$ bereft of any ideas. City look hard to break down in that mood, and hopefully that can carry on for a few games yet. The back four were SOLID, Bianchi looked sharp when he came on, although if Hamman took any longer on the ball, he might as well put his boots on his knees and crawl around.
On another line, I've recently hung up my boots, and can now get to some games, with my young daughter. Are there any parts of the ground more-suited for kids (other than the family stand, obviously, as this has been sold out on-line for both home games so far) ?
Cheers, and I'm looking forward to moving from the armchair to the stadium...
Took my 15 year old daughter to her first Manchester Derby. Cos I'm a Manc living in London, i got my tickets through the London Branch of the supporters club and we were given seats one block away from the glory followers. She had a great time what with all the singing. She felt happier when I laughed when she joined in on one of the more 'lively' songs, and then just got down to enjoying herself. Ended the game stood on her seat, red hands from all the clapping and a very sore throat! Hope your daughter gets to enjoy it as much as mine did.
