    east stand is awesome, that is the first level too, was it good? at OT i prefer the view at the very back of the first level or the front of the second for a bit of height.. i've still never sat in the stretford end :mad:

    It does have the feeling of one of those games that we fuck up

    Hoping for a sneaky 1-0 win

    come on utd, big game today.

    spurs haven't beaten us since 2001 though, i really hope this isn't the time they let them do it - we need to stay hot on city's heels! 5 point gap at the moment!

    I think even if you lose today you'll still probably win the league.
    See City dropping points against Arsenal, Newcaslte, Man United and Stoke. Swansea away won't be an easy game.
    Citys best hope is you lose today (I predict a draw) and then lose at the Etihad (predict a United win, bitter sweet revenge and all that) and hopefully Sunderland will put up a fight on the last day.

    yeah i think we have the easier run in, but anthing can happen in that head to head. could be a really cagey affair, or could be like a crazy cup game!

    most exciting season for a while imo. if we can't win it, i know city will, and they are moneybags/scum.

    today should be a good game whatever happens. two good sides, playing some silky, quick, direct, attacking football. good luck all.

    yeah it was although it's quite hard to see what's going on at the other end of the pitch and the corner of the east and south stand, i guess the best view of the game where you can see everything well would be in the north stand

    I love my seat - 7 rows from the front of the the lower Stretford End!:slayer:

    Got a feeling it's gonna be an exciting game today! Spurs are a great side so I'll be buzzing if we get the win:slayer:

    Row 7??? I couldn't sit that close. Isn't your pitch quite high from memory?

    I'm row 45, a bit further back than I would like but a nice perspective.

    Good luck today lads tbh.

    Sick of the pisstaking banter at the moment, and got enough respect for everything United have achieved since I've been alive but we are well overdue a win against your gang.

    Hoping for a cracking game, have a horrid hangover so it best be worth me being out of bed this early.

    Hoping for a good open game of football with a positive result at the end of the 90 minutes

    Wouldn't be surprised if we lost though

    cheers fella good luck too. i am originally from tufnell park, and had to endure years of grief from the gooners at my school in the late 80's and the 90's - so i have a lot of respect from spurs, a team who have been great to watch for my entire life and always tried to play the game properly.

    but with all due respect, i hope we smash you lol. bit worried about it tho!

    we just got owned, lucky it ended 3-2 because they deserved their 3-1 lead and we wouldn't have had a chance there imo, what a load of shit

    im beginning to wonder if we are seeing the gradual decline of english club football, not in terms of entertainment (its better than ever) but in terms of overall quality.

    City losing aswell... it would be crazy if the premier league didn't have a single team left in either the CL or Europa league at the quarter final stage :smashed:

    Oh I know and I'm not taking anything for granted but the way City and ourselves have been leap-frogging each other with the different KO times it's nice to actually be top and stay top..

    Think it was on BBC i read the stat that City has dropped 16 points in their last 16 games.
    Not sure if this is true and presume they mean non-league games aswell but thats not a sign of a winning team :mad:

    this is embarrassing and I'm not even a united fan :laughing:

    champions of england getting completely and utterly schooled for the second time in a row by a mid table spanish side.

    premier league the best in the world ? nah, not anymore.

    Is unbelievable to think they're only ninth in the league or something, they were excellent both legs and could've easily been more goals.. Maybe a lot of their teams cancel each other out or something? Fuk knows, great to watch though.

    Not too embarrassing really, sometimes you have to sit back and applaud it and realise that's the bar you have to try and get to. Good learning curve for some of them young players expect
