Who could forget the infamous 'Welcome to Manchester' banner that Manchester City hung outside Piccadilly Station to welcome the signing of Carlos Tevez, following his spell at rivals United, in the summer of 2009?

Not Tevez himself, who had a copy stuck up in his home, and certainly not Sir Alex Ferguson, who lamented the arrogance of his "noisy neighbours" as they sought to lord it over the city's established power.

But now, five years on, United have their revenge, with a Louis van Gaal-themed 'Welcome to Vanchester' poster appearing on a wall near the Manchester's main train station.

While City's effort, seen below, carried the club's official logo, it is as yet uncertain who has paid for the Van Gaal poster to go up.

But whether it was United themselves, or merely a supporters' group with a sense of humour, we salute them.
