They played in both camps, but who are red and who are blue

DATE: 05.07.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

In Manchester you have two camps, the red and the blue, Man Utd and Man City, but among the players who have served both, who would you say are blue and who are red
 

The first player to mention had a great career at Man City and he played for the club twice, but he also had a short spell at Man Utd. The former England winger Peter Barnes, will for always be blue in my eyes.

He started his career at Maine Road and did great in his early years, being voted PFA Young Player of the Year in 1976, same year as he scored and helped Man City to win the League Cup trophy.

Barnes made his England debut at the age of 21, and played a total of 22 games for his country. He joined Man Utd in 1985, and stayed at Old Trafford for two seasons playing 20 games and scored 2 goals. Then he made the switch to Man City again, but his last stay at Maine Road lasted just a few months, playing only 8 league games.

Another former great Denis Law, also had long spells in Manchester, playing in both camps. Man City twice, both short spells, finishing his career at Maine Road and also playing there for a short period in the early 60's.

He became a legend at Man Utd, playing at Old Trafford from 1962 to 1973. He played a  total of 309 league games for Utd, and in his two spells at City, 72 appearances. Would say that Law was a popular figure in both camps, but his years at Man Utd, made him red in my eyes.

Goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel is today working for Man Utd, in a hospitallity type of position and he travels around promoting Man Utd. Despite also being a goalkeeper at Man City, and also giving his son Kasper an introduction to the "blue camp", he is definately red.

Another goalkeeper Tony Coton, winger Peter Bodak, forward Wyn Davies and defender John Gidman are others with a life in both camps. Coton had a long spell at Man City, making him a definate "blue", Davies, Bodak and Gidman might be known for playing elsewhere.

All of them with relatively short spells in Manchester, Gidman is more known  for his time at Aston Villa, but him and Peter Beardsley might be unique, being two players who have played for Liverpool, Everton, Man City and Man Utd.

Another player who became controversial but did well in both camps is Carlos Tevez. Tevez did well in both places, but in my view would describe him as a "blue".

Another player in the Beardsley, Gidman category must be Owen Hargreaves who never really managed to get the best out of his time in England, and for always will be known for his days at Bayern Munich.

Brian Kidd must not be forgotten, he might be the one with the longest life in both camps, played for City and Utd, and also been on the coaching staff at both clubs for longer periods, still on the coaching staff at Manchester City.
