Ahead of the most anticipated derby in years which Trojan Horse is Sir Alex about to launch that will retrieve Man Utd's season? Who will be his Danny Rose?
City usurps the lad with "the legs that launched a thousand goals".
United fans are justifying Berbatov's continued existence by brandishing Tevez's newly disclosed £47 million price tag. On the face, Sir Alex has shrugged off Tevez's move as engendering "no regrets." A situation that suits City fans just fine. They are on the upswing and their bitterest bane of existence, on the down low.
Tevez has refused to celebrate goals scored against West Ham but one just knows that this rule will be broken without compunction should he score against Man Utd. He is going to come out as gangbusters.
One of things that might favour United is that in Tevez's single minded pursuit, he often neglects Adebayor, a phenomenon that surfaced at times against Birmingham and cost them a few more sure goals.
Otherwise his 28 goals makes him almost automatic to punish his old team. Gary Neville? I don't think so. The full back will have his hands full.
