Mourinho seems to have a bit of a hard on for City right now. Maybe he should focus more on Chelsea because i doubt his mind games will have much effect.

Everyone at the emirates should be given their money back. Match was a bloody disgrace. They don't care about people paying a days wages to watch

The powers that be don't seem to realize that the drop in atmos happened around about the same time that they redeveloped the Strettie and gave the lower half over to people who like to whinge and moan about people standing and singing,and thus grass them up to the stewards.

That's why the euro games generally have a better atmosphere,because the segregation is different as it is for league games...

Oh wow, that's just embarrassing :lol:

Also, this is the only forum I've seen where there's not at least one resident United supporter. It's a nice change.

Wasn't quiet when I went there. The tv has to dampened the sound so the "We've got a big f*cking German" chant doesn't get played into the nations living rooms.

The loudest stadium i ever visited was Celtic's, i was pretty young but i remember it being pretty deafening. Anfield always seems pretty loud too but i wouldn't be able to vouch for that personally. The Etihad can definitely make a bit of noise too but the players have to earn it by playing well and that often doesn't mean simply being the winners.
