MANCHESTER CITY supporters expressed "mixed feelings" after their team overcame United in the Manchester derby.

"I'm a bit disappointed" said City fan Mike Riley from Wythenshawe. "It's another three points gone missing from United's start. And though I'm a blue I know that United have the best chance of bringing the premiership back home to Manchester. I'm sad as a Mancunian that we've hurt their season."

The feeling of gloom was common among City fans of all ages. Veteran supporter Margaret Colmes, 79, of Rusholme, put it best: "I'm blue through and through but as a fan of football you want to see the best side win - and we didn't see that today. We played alright but United really deserved it after a magnificent performance. It's Alex Ferguson I feel most sorry for."

Blues fan Tony Pepper, hailing from Ancoats, echoed the sentiments expressed earlier in the week by City boss Sven Goran Erickson: "I wish we'd had the chance to see Rooney and Ronaldo in action. Especially Ronaldo because he's so thrilling to watch. The referees should give him more protection then he wouldn't have to react with headbutts."

In a familiar sight, the home crowd started to cheer sportingly for the opposition as the game neared its close, won over by United's gusty spirit and earnest endeavour.
