But not today. For the blue half of Manchester and Abu Dhabi, those 5 minutes of extra time were your Barcelona 99 or Arsenal at Anfield in 1989. A fantastic end to a very interesting season and the billion pound investment finally reined in the Red monster (of indifferent vintage) in the last five minutes and on goal difference. Those 5 minutes summed up for blues by this old advert for 5 boys chocolate:
Best wishes to all those blues of my acquaintance who have had the good grace in the past to acknowledge the achievements of another Manchester team. To the rest, your win puts you ahead of Preston , Derby and Burnley in number of wins and on par now, with 3 titles, with Huddersfield Town, Wolves and Blackburn. Enjoy your evening – the table does not lie.
