I was thinking the same thing but then remembered about the 3 united players banned for life in 1915 for match-fixing a game with Liverpool, so although we didnt win a title that year its still a black mark in our history and I wouldn't like to be accused of hypocrisy ;)

Man City such a let down and they should keep it that way
Who gives a sh*t about the which footballing city is better - we are better than both Inter Milan and AC Milan and thats what matters
Inter Milan boss Leonardo says Manchester no match for Milan as football cityInter Milan boss Leonardo feels Manchester has a long way to go to beat Milan as football's major city.Inter have won 18 Serie A titles and three European Cups, while AC Milan have won 17 titles and been champions of Europe on seven occasions.While Manchester United’s 18 titles and three European Cups is in keeping with Europe’s best, Manchester City have yet to qualify for the Champions League.“Maybe Manchester will rival Milan,” Leonardo told the Manchester Evening News. “But Manchester City have to win something to create a team that people want to watch every week around the world.“It is a transformation and it is not easy. Everybody needs time to do a project. It’s not only a question of the economics, but you also have to recognise that they need to create tradition.“Sometimes you need time but they have done it very, very fast. Today City is a big team who can fight anywhere.“Perhaps Manchester, with two big teams could be in the same situation as Milan as sometimes you don’t have equal teams in the same city.“It is difficult in other capitals and other cities to have two teams. You tend to have a big one and a middle one. Here in Milan it is very, very equal. With Manchester City growing like they are, in the future it could be the same situation.”
