Revolution oop North.

One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. - 1984 (George Orwell).

THREE questions. Who, out of Pep and Jurgen, is the greater revolutionary, who the greater dictator and who the more capable of indeliblity on club hearts?

Today, we shall see the two most attacking sides in the Premier League scintillate in a way that Jose (right) can only dream of, in his Manchester hotel suite, ever the Salieri to Pep's enviable Mozart.

And if goals be the food to satiate football fans, today promises to be a banquet of quite gluttonous proportions.

Guardiola's unmissable Unlosables - there, that's tempting Fate! - top and tail this week's televisual feast. Tomorrow, Jose lugubriously shuffles forward to thrust the stake into Stoke's heart, while they remain a rudderless hybrid with amorphous potential, but scant else.

The order of nature should decree that the Foxes and Blues snuff out gallant, but vain opposition in the FA Cup replays - though there may yet be magic if fortune favours the brave.

And then, on Saturday, Citeh look set to improvise symphonically on a sad and doleful Toon.
