Manchester United stunned Manchester City today by announcing that Eric Cantona and Roy Keane may be attending tomorrow's Manchester derby game at the City Of Manchester Stadium, which apparently isn't really a council house - although we only have Sheikh Mansour's word for it.
It's thought that this is another Fergie masterstroke, designed to intimidate the noisy neighbours, who despite their best efforts still play second fiddle to their more illustrious neighbours.
Sir Alex told Skoob Sports News to go away at Carrington this morning, essentially leaving us with nobody to quote from. Ryan Giggs though was a little bit more forthcoming.
"Oh no. Not you again," he muttered.
So as usual we repaired to a pub in town, the name eludes us, but it used to be The Brunswick, up near Piccadilly station, where we found legendary United fan Jarbo The Killer propping up the bar.
We asked Jarbo what he thought about Eric Cantona and Roy Keane sitting in the stands together at Eastlands for the derby.
"Brilliant!" he said. "They're legends them lads. Not that we need 'em there. It's the biggest game of the season for City - for us it's just another day at the office, like. But the lads out there on the park will up their game, knowing that they're in the presence of Mancunian footballing royalty. Eric the King and Keano. I bet Alf Inge Haaland isn't going now. Noisy neighbours my arse."
More as we get it.
