As much as I'd like to hate on Ferguson, it is impressive how consistent Man U performs given their talent is certainly not always that consistent. They are the only EPL team that is a title contender every season.

Their central midfield has been mediocre for years now, their defense has been mediocre for years. The fact that no teams really can take advantage has something to do with the EPL, but you also have to give Ferguson some credit there.

its common sense, you saw it yourself two days ago... even if city plays better there is no way 'they' let united fail to win the domestic title twice in a row and especially not after how it was decided last season

City have started off slow but they are doing what United has been doing for years. Grinding out wins. They've picked up points where they've dropped from last season so it really isn't looking TOO bad for City. However, I'll agree that they need to step it up and hopefully they will. Not many teams will be winning this many games with so many players injured. Silva should be back in training by the end of this week.

Just like you doubt the Spurs were going to beat the Clippers last year? How you expected the Clippers to sweep the Spurs?

Yeah buddy, you clearly know what you're talking about...

Clattenburg about to get banned for life for being a racist shit and a bribe taking scumbag, but still Man Utd get 3 bullshit points and Chicharito's miles offside goal still stands. No justice in this world.
