Danny Mills discusses next Monday night's massive Manchester derby and slams the hierarchy at relegated Wolves in his latest TEAMtalk column.
In this week's Mills & Boom column, I give my views on the massive Manchester derby which could decide whether fans in red or blue shirts will be celebrating winning the Premier League this season.
My feeling is that City simply have to win the game as they have the tougher run-in of the two - but I reckon there'll be more twists and turns in this rollercoaster ride of a season.
I debate Gary Neville's question: "Is it the biggest Premier League game ever?" And I also praise Everton and David Moyes for the role they played in a breathtaking game of football at Old Trafford.
At the other end of the table I put the blame for Wolves' relegation firmly at the door of the board, who have paid the price for their rash decision to sack Mick McCarthy. Terry Connor also has to take some responsibility after a pitiless points return - but he should never have been asked to do the job anyway.
Give my latest offering a read and let me know your thoughts in the comments box below - Danny.
Biggest Manchester derby - ever
Gary Neville has questioned whether Monday's Manchester derby is the biggest Premier League game ever, and I'm not sure about that - but I think it is the biggest Manchester derby.
There have been a lot of derbies over the years and even when I was at Manchester City there was always an air of expectancy that United were always far superior to City in that era.
In the last couple of seasons City have come right back into it with the investment and are now a realistic challenge for United.
I think United in the past dismissed the Manchester derby as almost unimportant - it probably meant more to the City fans than the United fans.
But now it couldn't have worked out better - and I think it will be winner takes all on Monday Night Football.
If City win this game I believe they will probably go on and win the title, as momentum will be with them and the goal difference will be healthy.
I can't see City losing their last two games if that's the case.
Of course United are out for revenge after getting an absolute drubbing at Old Trafford, where they collapsed after half-time. and there's no better medicine to put that right than a win at The Etihad. However I think a win for United, or even a draw, will see them win the title.
Vive la revolution
Monday night's derby is the biggest game for Man City fans for a long time. It's a big game for United as well.
But if Manchester City were to win it, it means more to them as they're trying to start a revolution and emulate Manchester United - and they are desperate for that first Premier League title.
United have been there, done it and are just trying to hold on to it and prove that they are still the best.
So it's a massive game because City are the new boys - it's not an Arsenal or Chelsea that have won the league before.
Whether it's the biggest Premier League ever? That's open to debate, and I think Liverpool, Chelsea Arsenal fans might have something to say about that and might not agree with Gary Neville.
I'll be in Barcelona at the same time as Neville, so I'm sure we'll have a bit of tapas, a few sangrias and a few San Miguels, then discuss the game!
Great that it's all to play for
Turning to Sunday's 4-4 draw at Old Trafford, it pleased lots of neutrals because I think in any walk of life we want to see competition. So many times in the past we've seen Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal in their heyday win the title at a canter with some games in hand. Relegation has been done and dusted, and it becomes a bit of a non-entity.
Suddenly now there's going to be all to play for at the top and bottom of the table - and whatever happens in the derby game there's still a chance that something could wrong for either team.
As for the Everton game, I was one of those fans watching who thought United would shut up shop at 4-2. I left the room for 10 minutes then came back and my son said 'you're not going to believe it dad, it's 4-4!"
I couldn't believe it and thought he was winding me up - you just do not expect Manchester United to do that.
It has been a very unusual season for the Premier League, a very exciting one. and this is now the biggest game of the season. A Manchester derby, red or blue. It's an evening kick-off which adds to the spice and atmosphere.
There's going to have to be a very strong referee in charge of this one.
Shaky United missing Vidic
I think there was a little bit of weakness in the Manchester United defence against Everton - and not for the first time this season.
They have really missed Nemanja Vidic as he's a real commanding character, and they've been all over the place.
For me, Jonny Evans is not the greatest player. He's a good player, but he's not a Champions League-standard centre-half. Rio Ferdinand has been in and out of form as he has struggled with injuries, Patrice Evra has been pretty consistent while Rafael and Fabio have been hit and miss at right-back.
You think of the days when they had solid defenders. Most recently, no matter what you think of 'Red Nev', Gary Neville was solid in every game, week after week. Going further back, you had the likes of Denis Irwin, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister - they were real solid players and you always knew what you were going to get, week in and week out.
That hasn't been the case for Manchester United this season.
Moyes' boys deserve credit
However you have to give credit to Everton. They're always a tough side to play against - and could quite easily have given up at 4-2, but that definitely doesn't happen under David Moyes.
He is a great manager, can be tactically brilliant at times, and demands hard work. To come back against United, playing for pride, playing for the shirt, is a fantastic testament to the Everton players and Moyes.
Other than finishing above Liverpool, Everton don't have a lot to play for, so Moyes has done fantastically well to get them where they are in the table. He has had no money to speak of, other than the investment to get Nikica Jelavic from Rangers, and along with Newcastle's Alan Pardew I believe he has to be a contender for Manager of the Season.
Board to blame for Wolves woe
United's slip-up opened the door for City, who had to win at Molineux to take full advantage. They did that - and the 2-0 victory sealed Wolves' relegation.
It was a sad day for Wolves. The owners and the chairman have a lot to answer for - and Terry Connor was blatantly the wrong appointment.
They should never have got rid of Mick McCarthy - and have paid the price for a terrible decision.
It's been really tough on Connor. The board made a snap decision after the big defeat to West Brom and got rid of McCarthy.
He would have done everything possible to keep the club in the Premier League. Looking back now, do you honestly believe McCarthy's results would have been worse than Connor's? No way. He would've picked a win or two and that would've kept them in touch.
I think it was a poor decision by the board - and the debacle that followed over trying to appoint a successor was a fiasco. Alan Curbishley was talked to, Steve Bruce thought he had the job at one point, other managers thought they were in the frame. Then all of a sudden Terry Connor was given the job, with Wolves saying he was the right man, when blatantly he wasn't.
He was an integral part of the McCarthy set-up, who were responsible for the position Wolves were in.
As first-team coach he was McCarthy's right-hand man and has day-to-day contact with the players, so he was equally to blame as McCarthy was.
To try and promote from within to get a reaction from the players was never going to work - and it would be nice for the board to come out and admit that they got it wrong and apologise to the fans.
Now they've got a serious problem, as we've seen in the past that if you don't get straight back up, you can struggle. Look at West Ham, they expected to do well but have struggled slightly.
Leeds, Southampton, Sheffield Wednesday, big football clubs, have slipped down the leagues in the past - and Wolves have got to be careful that doesn't happen because no doubt they'll have to cut the wage bill and will have a new team for next season.
Toon trip looks tough to me
Wolves were always going to fight tooth and nail for survival at Molineux on Sunday - but it wasn't to be. City got the win but Roberto Mancini is right when he says United are still slight favourites, as City's run-in is a little bit tougher.
After the derby, United have got Swansea at home. They're a good team to play against but haven't travelled that well this season so you'd have to fancy United to win that comfortably.
City, meanwhile, have got Newcastle away. The Magpies have won six games on the trot, are flying and looking like they might make the Champions League.
They're playing fantastic football and if they need to win to get into the Champions League, that's going to be a really tough game for City.
Then there's the final games of the season. Sunderland away is never an easy fixture, but what will the Black Cats have to play for? Possibly nothing so you'd expect United to cruise the game.
City, meanwhile, face QPR who have decent players like Joey Barton and Shaun Wright-Phillips facing their former club - and they could be fighting for their lives, desperate for a result.
So City certainly have the tougher run-in, and I think if the derby is a draw, the title is United's.
