Tom (@Tom_McGhee):

4-3. 6-1. Michael Owen. There is literally NOTHING good about Derby Day. A single game whose outcome will be appropriated by the fans and used as denouement to all football related arguments for the rest of the season. Luckily though, this season we’ve all been given a chance to break the cycle – GTA V is out. Since I know you all admire me for my honesty (charm/rugged handsomeness/virility), whilst I’m writing this and trying to string together you can steal a submarine! coherent sentences, all I’m thinking of is busting Lamborghini’s and burning Meth Labs.

Still, that’s not why you’re reading (I’m guessing abject loneliness/self-loathing) so I should at least mention the football. I imagine both new managers will be more eager to not lose than win and just get this first one done and out the way, although once again, this can’t be clarifed as neither has had the courtesy to return my calls. Just thought of a way to get into the military base and get that helicopter. As an additional point, I think its also only fair to mention the tactical genius employed by Moyes this summer; whilst City have the added dilemma of bedding in new faces, Canny Ol’ Dave stole a march by only signing one he already knew – which makes Woodward’s previously unexplainable antics a masterstroke of media manipulation. And you thought it was gross incompetence….

Prediction: As for the result, we all know in our heart of hearts that these games can go either way, regardless of form, personnel or a midfield featuring Ashley Young, but I’m going to stick my neck out and say City 1, GTA 5. Apologies; City 1 United 2.

Where to start with this one?

 

 

 

 

 

.                                                             .                                                .                            Here will do. (Yeah, I know I did this “joke” in my last post-match thing (twice), but maybe you missed it?! All the best “jokes” are repeated endlessly, everyone knows that): Our new midfield are gonna turn the post match debate from “Yaya” to “Oh NaNa they di’int!” Yep. That’s you told.

I’m presuming Moyes will go with the same eleven as faced Leverkusen, ‘cept Kags will probably be replaced by someone much nowhere near as good. I’d be happy with that* *Apart from the bit where Kagawa is replaced by someone much nowhere near as good and the Wayne Rooney shaped bit, obvs.

Rooney’s favourite Manchester based club haven’t got off to the bestest of starts under Pellegrini, which is a real shame … but I expect them to turn up on Sunday – it’s the least they can do in between spending the fans hard-earned on all those fast cars and even faster buses. All eyes will no doubt be on James “The Handyman” Miller. Just don’t say his name five times in front of your bathroom mirror.

Really looking forward to this game. Though, having seen RVP get booked for a Leverkusen player throwing their arse at him, while they were still attached to it, it’s going to take something pretty special to top that.

I think it will be 0-1, so I’m going 2-3.

Prediction: 2-3. Danny with his customary two. RVP with a long overdue goal. Tony to continuing doing something. Rooney to swap shirts before the game.
