Manchester United fans suffered one of their most humiliating days in the club’s history when they were thrashed by rivals Manchester City 6-1 at Old Trafford. It was a day that scored all sorts of new unwanted records for Man Utd and prompted manager Alex Ferguson to describe it as his ‘worst day ever’. However, the most striking thing about the events is that it looks like the landmark day for when the tide had finally turned in Manchester and in the world of football in general. The new money from Man City’s billionaire owner has officially made it’s impact and it seems there will be no limits to where it can take Man City.
There is still a long way to go in the season but some of the quality in Man City’s football was so classy that it would take a very brave man to bet against them for the league title this season and one can only assume that each transfer window they are going to get stronger.
Man Utd have been such a dominant force in Manchester, in England, in Europe over the years but it looks like there is a whole new competition now and how Man Utd are going to go about retaining their incredible status will be interesting to see. As for Manchester City, looks like they’re going to be around for a while.
