Tomorrow we invite our friends from the council house to our humble home, and I will surely write a preview post tomorrow. But apart from it being a derby and, of course, an opportunity to pick three points to close the gap with Arsenal, the game will assume greater significance for a non-footballing reason.
It is our first home game since the 50th Anniversary of the Munich disaster and our efforts to mark the occasion with a one minute silence may come under threat due to some City fans disrupting the said minute’s silence.
While it would be perfect if the minute’s silence takes place smoothly, one would realise that it doesn’t take too much effort to cause trouble — which is why, Sven Goran Eriksson has urged City fans to show restraint. Paul Scholes, meanwhile, thinks it’s time the City fans grew up a bit and just ‘shut up’.

Meanwhile SAF was pretty annoyed with the Premier league’s plans to move abroad. I have written about it here.
And Danny Welbeck could be given the chance to make his debut, as Rooney is suspended, and Saha… well I wouldn’t complete that statement.
