MONDAY - As Manchester United pulled four points clear in the Premiership title race, with a 5-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux, with goals courtesy of Evans, Valencia, Welbeck, and a brace from Chicharito, thus reducing the Goal Difference between United and City to a mere three, and with City facing Chelsea on Wednesday playing catch up...
The big question remains firmly in place.
Can City hack it? Can City hold their nerve, cut the mustard, take each game as it comes, give 110% over 90 minutes, keep clean sheets, hold their line, and prevent their bottoms from squeaking?
Former Arsenal star Ian Wright thinks they don't have the right stuff, and that United will emerge triumphant, at the end of the day, as the fat lady sings, the sun sinks in the west, and the silverware is up for grabs.
Serious questions one and all - and all directed at City, who haven't won the league since 1968.
Will the City slicker prima-donnas dig deep for Roberto "The Scarf" Mancini?
Or will he 'lose the dressing room'?
Will the return of Carlos Tevez herald a new dawn and a phoenix rising over the Etihad Stadium? Or will he prove to be a disruptive element?
A loose cannon of a distraction?
Do City have the necessary bottle to see the job through?
Or will they just be shit as usual?
The City is yours all right...but...are you fucking sure?
Or will United fans rejoice in singing:
"Six-one, and you won fuck all!"
More as we get it.
