The city of Manchester is beginning to calm down now, following City's momentous victory over their illustrious neighbours, United, at Wembley in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final.
City fans woke this morning to a new horizon, and the very real possibility that the first major trophy in 35 years could be on its way back to the City Of Manchester Stadium at Eastlands.
Yaya Toure's dramatic Wembley winner may well have sparked the catalyst by which the much maligned "noisy neighbours" finally shed the mantle of second best, and gear up to take on the world.
The feeling among the City hardcore, is that now they've shrugged off the United yoke, the next logical step is the Premiership and the Champions League. It's a mouthwatering prospect for the blue half of town, the vast majority of whom simply can't wait to grasp the nettle.
With a settled squad, and the mercurial talents of key players such as Balotelli, Sean Wright-Phillips, Yaya Toure, De Jong, Zabaleta, Kompany and in form keeper Joe Hart, City are beginning to look the part, and with Sheikh Mansour's millions there seems to be no limit as to how far this club can go.
One City fan told us:
"I bet Taggart is spitting feathers right now. Us beating them will have really got right up that big red nose of his. It's about time he stepped down anyway - United are a spent force these days. They're history. I'll love it, I say love it when the cockneys over there in Stretford have to take that '35 years' banner down."
To which a United fan countered:
"Take the banner down? You're having a laugh. They've won nothing yet. Same as us. They're in the cup final, but there's a little matter of Stoke City who might have something to say about winning the damn thing. And they say we're arrogant? That stupid scarf Mancini insists on wearing seems to have stopped the blood circulating to his brain. Rule the world? We'll see about that."
