The analogy about the rugby scrum was amusing !
The media's pro rag bias is hard to deny though, particularly Sky and the BBC. You only have to look back 3 weeks or so to Hansen on MOTD glorying in saying that City had capitulated, a sentiment he'd been dying to utter for weeks and weeks. We don't hear anything of a Utd capitulation now do we ? Nor mention of a lack of team spirit as Rooney mutters obscenities and shakes his head as his team mates let him down.
I agree that some blues are over the top in their paranoia but the bias is there for all to see
