The 2,500 Manchester United fans allowed into the City Of Manchester Stadium at Eastlands (up Oldham Road) filed out hanging their heads in shame as Manchester City really showed their illustrious neighbours how noisy a noisy neighbour can be.
By absolutely battering the Rags into oblivion with a stunning 0-0 victory.
Roberto Mancini, looking stunning as he patrolled the technical area in a coat that looked like it had somehow shrunk in the wash, and a crap scarf knotted bizarrely around his neck. (He got that one free at Old Trafford in the Munich commemoration fixture - the cheapskate.)
It was all much ado about nothing really. No goals. No real drama. Not very exciting for the neutral, but Citeh really kicked butt.
And now the Rags know where we stand.
Sorry about that bitters.
Hence the brevity of the match report.
Sure - the City is yours.
Tell yourselves that often enough and you might start to believe it.
