09:08 AM ET 10.24 | City goalkeeper Joe Hart was recorded on Sky TV saying he had been subjected to death threats from fans. As Hart walked off the pitch at fulltime following City's 6-1 demolition of Man United, he said to teammate James Milner: "I was getting death threats the whole of the second half," but he later played it down as "just banter."

This clearly demonstrates ManU fans commitment to the English national team. Kill the only non-aweful English goal keeper. Makes sense to me.

Plus, shouldn't they be directing their death threats at De Gea?

Money bought this victory for City. Just like money bought Man U all their silverware.

I will say, the only Man U fan I feel a bit of sympathy for is TLVG, simply because the University of Washington Huskies were apparently purchased by the Glazer family last week as well. Both teams have adopted the same defensive strategy.

I wonder if anyone has ever done a psychoanalysis of Mario. The kid is crazy.
