Noel Gallagher ‘On Knees’ For Manchester Derby

by | 24th, October 2011

MANCHESTER derbies have definitely favoured the red half of the city (please make your own jokes about the red half of Manchester being in Essex) over the years, with Manchester City’s last big derby coming in the late ’80s with a 5-1 pasting of the Red Devils at Maine Road.

But of course, this weekend, City trounced United 6-1 at Old Trafford. The last time Man United lost to a five goal margin, Jesus Christ our Lord was on the books for Galilee Argyle.

And of course, one of Manchester City’s most famous fans, Noel Gallagher, was thrilled at the win. Everyone who isn’t a Man Utd fan was in fairness. With a fresh number one album under his belt, Noel was understandably chuffed to bits.

But what helped the victory? Noel told the BBC:

“The fact that Alex Ferguson rested Howard Webb”

Gallagher was also “on my knees in front of the television” when his side scored their sixth goal during the drubbing of their massively successful neighbours.

He also called David Silva “the best player in the league” and Mario Ballotelli “a legend”.
