Derby Day: Manchester City v Manchester United - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

on the cards after last night's games.
By the standards used to judge recent red-carded tackles like Vincent Kompany's against
Manchester United and Jay Spearing's against Fulham, on Wednesday night Glen Johnson at the very

It's only Monday, but already it's almost time for another match. And for a moment it's almost
as though Liverpool were back in Europe once again, the games coming thick and furious and with

In what proved to be one of the must see games of this year's Cup, Germany and France both came out
swinging. A 4-2 result with French keeper Berangere Sapowicz seeing red make this game a nailbiter
