Man City 0-0 Man Utd – The Worst Manchester Derby In Living Memory? (Photos)

In answer to the question in the headline, yes, this was the worst Manchester derby I’ve seen. I mean, it was absorbing but so cautious and even before half-time you would have bet on it finishing 0-0. Neither team could face even the thought of losing this contest at this particular time, and boy did it show. Two negatives should make a positive, but not in this case.

United, led from the middle by Paul Scholes (composed), Darren Fletcher (tireless) and Michael Carrick (my man of the match), just about edged it on points, with City lacking invention and pace in most areas of the pitch – when you’re playing with DM/CB Yaya Toure and asking him to play like Andres Iniesta, you know something ain’t quite right. And when Fergie replaced Dimitar Berbatov with Javier Hernandez late on, it was clear that not losing was more than good enough for both parties. Bragging rights on ice.

    Both teams defended impeccably, though it was definitely not one for the attacking purists.

    That said, the solution to City’s lack of invention seems blatantly obvious to me.

    Surely by pushing Silva and Adam Johnson up alongside Tevez then dropping Milner into the middle with Yaya and De Jong (with Barry dropped completely as he does nothing better than anyone else does), the attacking balance of the side would be redressed for the better?

    vidic was easily man of the match.
    not happy with that, waste of fifty quid. they might be happy with a draw, but we’re not and no united fan should be

    Same could have been done for united by pushing park and nani closer to berbatov who looked slightly isolated, especailly when he came looking for the ball deep.
    Saying that I couldnt see City scoring whilst i always felt United could pinch one….
