Changing The Guard-iola: Pre-Match Etihad Ceremony Sees United Surrender Power to Rivals City

Could be a sad old day for United fans. Go drown your sorrows lads whatever the result.....


Man City’s Premier League dominance this season has seen a changing of the guard in Manchester, with Pep Guardiola’s side set to seal the title if they beat rivals United today.

And a literal representation of that power shift took place outside The Etihad this morning, as United-inspired footmen presented the Crown Jewels – or in this case the Premier League trophy – to soldiers in City-style blue.

We’ve dubbed it ‘the changing of the Guardiola’.

After 13 titles for Manchester United in 25 years, a win today for City will see them secure the league earlier than anyone in Premier League history. The potential record-breakers are rated at 4/6 to get the most points, and 4/7 to bag the most wins in a season.

As for United, football fans can get 9/4 on them not winning the league again for five years and 15/2 on the Red Devils not winning the Premier League for ten years or Mour.

It’s out with the old and in with the blue in Manchester. After years of supremacy on the red side of town we thought it was time to hand over the Crown Jewels of English football to City. Take it on the chin United fans, you had your time.



4/9      Man City to record the most points in a Premier League season in 17/18
4/7      Man City to record the most wins in a Premier League season in 17/18
5/6      Man City to score the most goals in a Premier League season in 17/18
13/8    Man City to record the biggest points margin in Premier League history in 17/18
100/1 City to have won more PL titles than United by 2030


9/4      Man United not to win the Premier League within five years
15/2    Man United not to win the league for ten years or more

There will be no changing of the guard over at! But we do still have great bets 

What do you think?
