Blackpool v Manchester City, at least on paper, was an interesting concept, but a horrendous colour clash.
Blackpool in tangerine, City in sky blue.
One Sky HD viewer claimed he had to switch off because watching this horrendous colour contrast reminded him of eating some really sickly marzipan based cake.
Blackpool boss, Ian Holloway, messing about with some turkeys and a scabby looking poodle in his back garden, said that his lads were well up for it, and weren't to blame for the colour clash.
"We've always played in tangerine," he allegedly said. "It goes right back to the days of Matthews, Mortenson and Fatty Foulkes. And Gordon Milne. It isn't our fault the colours look really shit - especially in HD. I blame City. I mean: sky blue? What's that all about? It's not proper blue is it? It's just watered down proper blue if you ask me. Blue without bollocks. It's wishy washy and shit - neither here nor there. A bit like City really. Dull and boring."
As the match progressed, City fans cemented their status alongside the Mickey Mousers as proper witty fuckers by droning "The city is ours, fuck off back to London" aimed at United fans.
To the tune of 'I Wanna Go Home' by the Beach Bums.
United fan, Donald Skoob, a janitor at Salford University told us:
"I don't know why they keep doing this. They're forever trying to get us to support City. Because if we don't, we're somehow not 'proper' Mancunians. I'm not a Mancunian anyway - I'm Salford. So bollocks to the brain dead 'Blue Moon' singing Oasis loving knobheads."
The views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect the views held by City supporting donkey loving dickheads.
The score was a nail biting 0-0 when this reporter turned the telly over to watch a Carry On film.
More as we get it.
Update: City nicked it 3-2 courtesy of a blatantly offside goal from United reject, Carlos Tevez.
Maybe one day City fans will learn how to behave and conduct themselves in a civilised manner.
