Given that the hunt for the treble is still on in the red half of Manchester it seems pretty clear to us here at the Football Transfer Tavern just who is having the better season out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s men and their noisy neighbours. City have been a little bit of a joke this season heading out of the Champions League group stages for a second successive year despite their massive spending power and hugely capable squad and falling ever further behind in the league.
As our United punters are having a right laugh about this fact, someone quips that there have been pictures all over the internet of former bad boy Mario Balotelli and his bust up with Roberto Mancini, yet we think we have found an even funnier picture doing the rounds on the world wide web.
Sadly for Roberto Mancini when he made the error of calling himself the best manager in the league in the last 15 months as recently reported by the Daily Mail he must have forgotten that there are more than a couple of witty people out there who are willing to make a mock up of his comments and have a joke of their own.
Fergie has chewed up and spat out Rafael Benitez and Arsene Wenger in the past and is even getting the best of the Special One – Jose Mourinho at the minute so it comes as no surprise that this latest spoof puts the ball firmly in his court – well not like a 12 point lead at the top of the table didn’t do that anyway!
