Fixture In Focus – Episode 15 – Manchester City vs Manchester United

The Manchester Derby is the chief rivalry at the forefront of English football, or at least it should be.

Manchester United enter this clash against their noisy neighbours on the back of an incredibly underwhelming start to the season and although their recent comebacks, which pay tribute to their last meeting with Manchester City, have demonstrated a mental resilience and passion many accused them of lacking, they’re certainly the underdogs for this one. Even a win wouldn’t get them back into the Premier League title race.

With James Jones still frolicking in foreign lands, Christy Malyan once again takes up hosting duties for this week’s episode and he’s joined by perfect company. Fixture In Focus regular Chris McMullan is an avid Manchester City fan, while previous guest Stel from Shoot The Defence has returned to represent Manchester United in our heated debate.

On the agenda is a quick look back at last week’s Fixture In Focus and Liverpool’s over-reliance on an underpeforming forward line, Manchester United’s great striker debate, the club’s seeming prioritisation of finance over football, Manchester City’s potential weaknesses and of course, our score predictions.
