For avoidance of doubt it was NOT a 'Tongue in cheek' comment at all.

My statement was a serious comment and I stand firmly by it, indeed I am 'Gummed' to it.

Whatever you might think of Gary Neville, the fact remains that Tevez purposely ran over to the dugout to celebrate - Incitement ! And I stick by by comments regarding NOT only Tevez but other players making gestures to the crowd IE Hands behind ears.

In my humble opinion, 'Tevez' should be charged with incitement for running over to the Man Utd dugout to celebrate his goal.

Players get booked for removing their shirts (Ridiculous) whilst those who cause incitement by their actions (Like making gestures) seemingly get off scot free.

I assume that is a tongue in cheek comment designed to create the response it obviously has.

The lesser Chuckle Brother has, over the years, proved himself to be exactly as Tevez described him with his regular silly little comments.

On Tuesday a number of the rag players acted like kids in a playground emulating their Mentor's typical behaviour. Whether it was Rooney's childish attempts to put Tevez off his penalty or Neville's Spitting at the City players and crude gesture (as seen on T.V.) or the Evra V sign to the City fans at the end of the game. All of whom got off scot free.

I am aware that your comment was aimed at Tevez whilst ignoring the indignities of the said rags and yes, maybe he should not have taken a mild swipe at the people who had treated him so disgracefully but it was, never the less, understandable.  I would have liked to have seen what gary chuckle would have done in this situation.  As for it being incitement, I don't think so.

And yes, I do see the irony in my childish references to the above.

I was going to post something very similar but ....you've said it all there really mate !

'Tevez purposely ran over to' the city fans (not the dugout) cupping his ears for a rendition of 'Fergie sign him up , Fergie Fergie sign him up !!' ....just thought i'd mention that !

Yes, I knew it wasn't tongue in cheek (just my little joke).

As for the celebrations I think that the game would become very sterile if we took out this kind of passion and it is sad if people need to react to things like this with vile acts etc. It's all part of the fun no matter which team does it.

Granted it was wrong for Ade to run to the Arsenal fans so vociferously just as it was wrong for Neville to run the length of the pitch to thump his badge to the Liverpool fans that time. 

I seem to remember City legend Dickov scoring for Leicester then kissing his badge half a dozen times to the City faithfull.  City fans were not incited to riot or spit at him, we just thought he was a bit of a gimp for doing it.  It is part and parcel of the game and the sooner people get a grip and stop making something out of nothing the better.

As for my dislike of Neville, it is bitter sweet.  I fully admire and respect his passion but I'm not too keen on his methods.  Someone once asked me, if you had to be stuck in a lift with two opposing players who would they be?  I thought a while then said Neville and Robbie Savage.  It would be great to find out what made these two tick and if they were really that obnoxious.  I suspect that Savage would be a great laugh whereas Neville might just sit in the corner sulking but you never know!  Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with?

Poppycock !

Tevez purposely ran over to the dugout to stir the emotions in the United 'Camp', accordingly his actions could be deemed as provocative. In the circumstances it is little wonder that Gary Neville reacted, NOT that I am supporting him for his gesture.

I happen to  believe that players should be booked for inflammatory gestures and actions rather than be booked for removing their shirts.

I was referring to Tevez's second goal (not the Neville incident) , Carlos Cupped his ears to the City fans so they would sing his song (his words not mine !)
As for the 'Neville incident' Tevez clearly ran over to the City fans , then after celebrating he was verbally abused by Neville to which he responded with a hand signal suggesting Neville talks too much ! nothing wrong with that in my opinion .....however Neville's response to Tevez can only be described as a obcene gesture !
I would say that Neville's gesture was more 'inflammatory' than Tevez's and certainly more worthy of a 'bookin' !

Oh dear! Not a good time for Rooney to hit top form (every time he touched the ball at Eastlands he was class) and a Ferdinand return.

Even though we are one goal to the good I can't help feeling that we are the underdogs but maybe that is not a bad thing.

My typical City insecurities are kicking in and a draw would be a magnificent result. In past years I have gone into a derby just hoping that we won't get humiliated. This time however it should be different.

Here's hoping.

I have seen all this cupping of ears before and it has been nothing to do with the player requesting the supporters to sing a song in his honour !

I cannot condone Gary Neviille's gesture but it was in response to what he saw as provocation from Tevez and most certainly Tevez's actions were far more pronounced and visible and as such far more inflammatory in that it was viewed by the majority if not all in the crowd.

The only thing Tevez did to 'provoke' Neville was to score a penalty against United then celebrate his goal with the City fans !
If Neville feels it necessary to respond to a goal against his team with a verbal rant followed by an obcene gesture then he really needs to get a grip and grow up a bit !!

Just got back from Scunny. 

Great result from half a City team, Robbie still lacking confidence, Petrov had a great game (always plays like he has something to prove, it does him good to keep him hungry) and our young lads keep getting better.  Great little ground made for a good atmosphere.  You are right Paul, the Carling would be nice but this is the one that matters.

As for the Tevez thing he DID start it initially to beckon the red fans to support him.

Ferguson has said today that Tevez should have got a red.  He really is losing it.  And we wonder where his players get their petulance!

I fully endorse the comments of 'Sir Alex'.

For avoidance of doubt I have NO allegiance whatsoever towards Man Utd or Man City so my sentiments are not prejudiced.

Sorry but this is bunkum on stilts.

Who on earth has doctrinated me when nobody I know has a particular allegiance to either team ? I can assure you that I would have said the same about Gary Neville if he had acted in the same manner as Tevez.

The united favouring media have been drip feeding pro united ideals into the public sub-conscience for years, pandering and feeding at the trough of the column fillers.

It's not your fault and I do not mean it as a criticism but it is simple "auto suggestion" on their part whether we acknowledge it or not.  Thankfully though a few hacks seem to be turning against them and refusing to pander.  At last.

Rest assured that unlike a lot of City fans I do not have an in built dislike of everything red (but I'm getting there).  I am one of those who had been known in years gone by to got to O.T. from time to time (alot did) but they were not the same united as they are today.  They are now masters of media manipulation.  The new united I have no time for.

I respect your opinion, however I just don't agree with it but that's what forums are for.
