Manchester Derby open thread

Good afternoon, everyone. Manchester City and Manchester United this afternoon contest a huge, huge, match today at Eastlands. With three matches left, United sit three points ahead of City at the top of the table, although City have a +6 goal differential advantage. If City win, they will vault back into first place based on that. If United win, they will scoot six points ahead of City with only two matches left, making it highly improbable that the Citizens would catch them for the title.

Oh, and by the way, this is a derby, too. No pressure or anything. United will be looking to avenge the 6-1 pasting they took from City at Old Trafford in the autumn, as well, so, there's that.

Feel free to comment on all of the action below. Please bear in mind the usual guidelines: 1) use a subject line always (still don't understand why this is difficult, but it really helps us out and is appreciated), 2) picture height maximum of 300, 3) no links to illegal streams, 4) be kind to each other.

The match is on ESPN 2, ESPN3.com, and ESPN Deportes. It starts at 3 PM EDT.
