When he’s under pressure the Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho normally parks the clubs bus around the halfway line. So, can we expect anything to change at the Etihad later today?
If you are reading this and you are not a Blue, may I set the record straight?
Jose Mourinho has an affectionate nickname – Moaning Maureen Mourinho (no need to explain, do I?).
There, that’s that settled!

Manchester City vs Manchester United
Kick off 17:30 BST
Live on TV within the UK on Sky Sports.
Referee – Martin Atkinson
The size of the Etihad pitch is approximately 116.5 x 78 yards – 8932.sq yards and so Jose has quite a large area to tell his players about his perceived ‘no go’ areas.
Take a look Jose.

It’s highly likely, the halfway line might be a tad too high for Maureen today, especially as he knows his team will, for 90 minutes be under the cosh.
Win at all cost, bore the pants off the paying supporters, and that’s not forgetting the one billion worldwide TV audience to death mentality will, in my opinion harm Manchester United FC. He did it at Chelsea and he did it while he was the Real Madrid boss.
Today’s game is meant to be a spectacle. The Premier League has done their part, Manchester City FC will definitely play their part, however, TV pundits, Blues and anyone who has an interest in football know United will do their up-most to turn up and spoil the occasion.
Win, lose or draw today

Having said all that, wouldn’t it be sweet if City claim all three points and win this seasons Premier League title. And right under their nose.
Come on CITY!
