As the derby nears closer, we take a look at the social build up to the game…
From fans flying across the Atlantic to be at the game, to boxers repping City scarves ahead of their matches – we have selected some of the weird and wonderful views of Sunday’s game.
We also look at a couple of our players’ social media post to see how they’re feeling ahead of the match.
First up, fan Jim Taylor is making the rather long trip from Philadelphia, USA, to make sure he’s at the derby! Now that’s commitment!
Also in Philadelphia, our very own Moonbeam and Moonchester recruited a new mascot fan ahead of the derby – meet ‘Gritty’ to mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey team…
Next, Gary James takes us back in time to show us what the build-up to the derby looked like back in the 1920s. It’s a bit different now!
Great results by both Manchesters last night and now we can look forward to #manchesterderby day. Here’s how they looked forward to them in the 1920s in Manchester’s papers. pic.twitter.com/u9iqdJuxTb— Gary James (@GaryJamesWriter) November 8, 2018
Meanwhile, John Dykes of Fox News Asia, eyes a tough test tomorrow, labelling us as “the team who can’t stop scoring”.
Over to the world of boxing now as boxer Oleksandr Usyk decided to don a City scarf around his neck at the weigh in before his fight against Tony Bellew.
Finally, we see how a few of our players are feeling ahead of the big game…
