Derby preview

Much of what I wanted to say is covered here.

As a prediction, I'm going to go for a narrow defeat. With everyone fit we may have been competitive, but I just can't see us getting anything with only Craig Bellamy up front on his own. And I love Craig Bellamy.

All I can ask for is a little bit more fight than either of our surrenders last year. For all the talk before about how Mark Hughes understands the Manchester derby, how he keen he is to beat Sir Alex, how he wants to instill a winning mentality and so forth, the two derbies last year were two of the weakest derby performances I can remember for some time. So an improvement on that would be welcome.
