Several members of both Manchester City and Manchester United's Argentina/Spain contingent defied the interclub blockade to go out for a pleasant meal in one another's company on Sunday evening.
Along with their significant others, United's Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Victor Valdes, and City's Martin Demichelis, Pablo Zabaleta and Willy Caballero tucked themselves into their glad rags and headed into Manchester together for a bite to eat.
So much hideous denim in these photos. So much.
While we didn't actually see the game ourselves, we think it's fair to assume that Doncaster Rovers' 0-0 draw with Fleetwood in League One on Saturday afternoon probably isn't going to go down as one for the ages.
Indeed, the largely featureless game finished goalless after 94 minutes of miscellaneous huffing and puffing, with more corners registered than shots on target by the time the full-time whistle shrilled around the Keepmoat Stadium.

Faced with the very real possibility of having a shot-shy striker, who has managed just a few goals in a decidedly underwhelming debut season at Anfield, running away with their Player of the Year award, Liverpool...
Sunday afternoon saw bitter rivals Al-Faisaly and Al-Wihdat contest the Amman derby over in the Jordanian Premier League, with the latter recording a resounding 3-0 victory to further secure their place at the summit of the table.
However, Al-Wihdat can't take 100 percent of the credit for their resounding win, with Al Faisaly keeper Mohammad Shatnawi doing his bit and pitching in to notch his opponents' second goal of the game in utterly bizarre circumstances.
Having made a perfectly decent...
We never thought we'd say this, but spare a thought for poor Newcastle United.
The club prepared for Sunday's Premier League game at home to Tottenham with a successful fan protest aimed at club owner Mike Ashley. The protest (can see a bit of it here on video) dovetailed with news that it would be their worst home attendance of the season, and then, midway through the first half, came the ultimate ignominy: a banner from their biggest rivals gloating over the current record in the Tyne-Wear Derby.
