Considering the drab nature of the action on the pitch, it is not surprising that the most entertaining aspect of this evening's Manchester derby was the post-match analysis.
Roy Keane, Micah Richards, and Gary Neville were on hand to give their thoughts on the match and on the long-term futures of the teams involved, providing some very interesting opinions.
Keane was predictable in his analysis, saying he was unhappy with the lack of edge of friendly nature of the players involved in the game.
However, the best moment of the Sky Sports coverage came when the Irishman had a cut at one of his fellow analysts.
The former Manchester United player was recalling how he never wanted to be rotated during his playing days when he managed to fit in a not so subtle dig at his old teammate Gary Neville.

Keane: I always say, when you're at a big club the players pick the team. You train all week, you play and eventually the manager says 'I have to play him'.
That was my mindset when I was playing for the club: 'squad rotation and all that is great, but don't be rotating me'. I've got to play in the team and hopefully I can bring something to the team.
Chop and change some other lads, Gary [Neville] and one or two others but leave me to it.
Neville: I was a stalwart at right back I'll have you know.
Keane: You were the only right back at the club to be fair, they were stuck with you!
To be fair, all three pundits in the studio today are usually very entertaining when they are on screen together.
