Man City 3-1 Man Utd

Melbourne, Australia

Day 647. 15 January 2006

What a start to the new year, My first derby on my big screen. Scott, who I work with and also in a band called Stroll came round to watch the game and we did not disappoint.

Albert Riera did a great job on the left of City's midfield and Manchester City took the derby-day honours with 3 goals.

Trevor Sinclair put City ahead with a neat turn and shot after Joey Barton's cross was not properly cleared, and a cool Darius Vassell finish made it 2-0. Robbie Fowler can on and made sure of the win in injury time when he smashed home a third, I bet he will be having a great night tonight knowing his hatred for united. Ronaldo deserved to be sent off for his reckless lunge at Cole, it reminded me of the Keane incident.

Darius Vassell's cool finish doubles the home side Darius Vassell's cool finish doubles the home side
