While Manchester United were hosting Shakthar Donetsk at Old Trafford on Tuesday, December 10, their fans not in Stretford took to social media to entertain themselves by engaging in schaudenfreude, as their local rivals Manchester City were coming unstuck in Germany, going two goals down to Bayern Munich within quarter of an hour.
City dropped goals to Thomas Muller and then Mario Gotze and were subject to taunts of: 'You're getting Mullered!' and 'Things I like almost as much as seeing United win? Seeing City get slaughtered!'
However, goals from David Silva Aleksander Kolarov and then James Milner ensured City secured an epic comeback to take maximum points back to England after their evening's work at the Allianz Arena.
City supporters, therefore, ultimately had the last laugh… here's a selection of the best retaliatory comments:
Kevin: 'Stupid United fans - we won with our reserve team!'
Jeremy: 'Shut them up, eh? Like to have seen United do what we did. No chance. We are a different class. Still, congrats to them on not throwing away their game in the first half - sounds like they were awful.'
City till I cry: 'Lovely to see the rags are more interested in watching city reserves than their own first team.'
City host Arsenal on Saturday, December 14 at lunch-time while United travel to Birmingham to take on Aston Villa on Sunday.
