Cantona: City Stand A Chance Against United… Over 89 Minutes

Manchester United beat Manchester City in injury time on three occasions last season, which ultimately denied the blues their place in the Champions League, as well as propelling United to their League Cup final win.

Eric Cantona has today mocked City and fancies United’s chances to win the league this season.

“If City play a game against United for 89 minutes, maybe they’ll have a chance!” Cantona joked. “But I think United have a team that is experienced and they have young players also – they still work on young players. Chelsea don’t look so good, Liverpool seem to have problems. Arsenal? Maybe.”

    loving the speed of the attack in this game, Scholes is magic as usual, think I’ve only seen 1 bad pass from him in 45 mins! It’s great to see Scholes sitting deep spraying the passes around and the rest of the midfield, fullbacks and attack bombing forward.

    Sometimes I will deliberately try to lighten up the blog if I see infighting, although I have had my share on the Blog and some of the Words I have used to fellow Reds on here in the heat of posting I feel utterly ashamed off, when I read back, I think was that me!
