The noisy neighbours have double-parked outside, kicked the front door off it’s hinges and taken a huge dump in the kettle.

Manchester City have just finished doling out United’s heaviest home defeat since 1955, slapping six past their bitter rivals at Old Trafford (the first time anyone’s scored six at OT in the top flight since Huddersfield Town in 1930) thanks to goals from Mario Balotelli (2), Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko (2) and the superb David Silva.

While I can scarcely believe what I’ve just seen, I’d still like to go on record here and now and proclaim that City will definitely be winning the league this season and, of course, IT WILL ALL BE JONNY EVANS’ FAULT.

    Pathetic display !! Utterly gutted…yes I blame Evans..never liked him from day one….useless tool…how do you have him start before Jones is beyond me..and also Smalling SMH !!!

  2. wtfmate says:

    After burning down his house, Balotelli burnt down MAN U hahaha

  3. Mark says:

    Who could have possibly predicted Evans would flop against a good team?

  4. higigg says:

    Man Utd must be a one man team if it’s all Evans fault

  5. LiVeRpOoL says:

    Just a small club near Wigan…

  6. higigg says:

    He doesn’t deserve it, the other ten weren’t much better

    • Chris says:

      I agree, but unfortunately some people feel the need to start slinging the blame around when anomalies like this occur – and it’s all landed on poor Jonny Evans this time around.

  7. JJ says:

    When you make Patrice Evra your captain, this is what happens.

  8. Paul Kirkland says:

    Sure Evans got a red card, but where were any of United’s forwards?

  9. Hootie says:

    Silva was unstoppable. Probably the best player in the premier league at the moment.

  10. B says:

    Go fuck yourself Chris, I thought u say Chelsea would win the league…

  11. Elliott says:

    We can all agree City played well and thoroughly deserved to win, but has everyone gone mad? The 6-1 scoreline was a little flattering, as if it wasn’t for a few minutes lapse in concentration at the end, it would have been 3-1. Still wouldn’t be my favourite scoreline, but much less humiliating. The whole United team needs some blame, but what on earth was Jonny doing? Although on the backfoot, we were still in the game before he went. Any confidence he had from playing well this season will be crushed, which may not be the worst thing in the world if he gets sold. It is more than 3 points when your playing in a game like that, but we all know not to write United off just yet.

  12. Terrier says:

    C’mon Huddersfield Town – City nearly equalled your record. Good omen for the season.

  13. Red_Devil says:

    Well today was a gaff…. Glory, Glory Man United!

  14. Guero says:

    Thank you Manchester City for dealing United a hefty defeat. Now, the annoying bandwagon supporters, here in the States, can shut up for once. If any of you Englishmen think bandwagon fans are bad in your nation, you have now idea how annoying they are this side of the Atlantic. For example, they think that Man U v. Chelsea is a traditional rivalry. I bet I know more about the Man U than they ever will (I am a River Plate fan).

  15. Charlie Adam says:

    River Plate are fucking shit, just saying.

  16. Xani Alves says:

    Anyone see Aguero getting punched in the face by Richards while celebrating Balotelli’s first?

  17. Andy says:

    The whole team flopped but Evans is prone to mistakes (if you watch enough football you know), I loathe to see him in the line up every time I watch Utd. Terrible all-round defending. I like how the media are jumping on the “power-shift” bandwagon. The league is not played between two teams! An embarassing defeat nonetheless but if Utd win the league I’ll proudly put the scoreline as my profile pic on FB. ;)

  18. Montesquieu says:

    I’m surprised Ferguson didn’t blame the kit they wore.

    Truly a spectacular day for the blue side of Manchester (the majority…).

  19. Chris says:

    @B: Ah yes, but I’m as knee-jerk as they come!

  20. Paul says:

    David de Gea was the reason Man United lost by 6, he had no idea where to position himself when the Man City players were bearing down on him and they could calmly slot it away in what was a practically open net. I know he’s only 20 but i can see a young Massimo Taibi in the making…..

  21. Mr. Angry says:

    hahaha! good work city, you handed manure their arses! hahahaha! i should have gone to the pub to see the look on the faces of those glory hunting manure scumbags!

    MANCHESTER UNITED 1-6 MANCHESTER CITY.. hahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhhhhhhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahha.

  22. snake says:

    Lmfao!!!Chris ur a total knob!!Evans has been getting death threats on twitter?goes to show u how pathetic man u fans are,its a team game!!Rooney played pathetic but no one says shit!!man u keeper was to blame a Sunday pub league guy wud have done better!also Ferdinand should be blamed he was embarrassingly shit,but again no one blames him!I’m glad man u got hammered at home so badly,its one game yet fans on twitter are acting like he lost them the league!tossers!

  23. Anonymous says:

    someone please tweet to Rooney something about being given a footballing lesson

    not a man u fan, but loving this

  24. John E Blazin says:

    United were beaten by a much better team at every position. Rooney and Fletcher played well, but the rest of that team were overwhelmed by quality. I enjoy watching united lose, but yesterday felt like fucking christmas.

  25. ngaromba says:

    never giveup man u 4ever

  26. Del says:

    Don’t pin this on De Gea, he’s suppose to have 4 defenders in front of him who know what’s happening, but then Evra gets nutmegged for one goal and ferdinand is so out of position making it easy for Silva to slip in.
    but anyway Congratulations City!!! :)

  27. mr.happy says:

    mr. angry u’r a huge manure-loving gentleman. lol city aint gonna win ANYTHING. And even if they do, well 2 billion dollars will buy you most third world countries, let alone the premiership…hardly anything to celebrate. much like france winning the world cup in 1998 with only 5 REAL frenchmen on the team. lol, if i was a city fan i’d hang myself

  28. ollyarsenal says:

    the fans showed there true colours when they started to leave at 3nil in fergies darkest hour…..rvp and silva players of the day!!

  29. Miguel - NYC says:

    Evans really sucks…he never went for the ball even though he was ahead of Balotelli. He was beaten before the play happen.

  30. Bob the Blue says:

    The new bitters sure took a hammering. If you rags are gonna blame anyone blame your manager. His statement that United had already played all the top teams really rankled with the City players.

  31. Mr. Angry says:

    @ mr happy

    you know fuck all you bell end! Im a liverpool fan! we should have battered you at anfield!

  32. Mr. Angry says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! NICE ONE GALAGHER!
