MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (AP) - Manchester United fans are no longer laughing quite so hard at Manchester City.

City's win in last weekend's FA Cup final has prompted United to remove a banner hanging at its stadium mocking its rival's long stretch without a trophy.

The annually updated banner had reached "35 years" this season.

United amassed 13 league championships, eight FA Cups, four League Cups, two Champions League titles and the European Cup Winners' Cup between City winning the 1976 League Cup and beating Stoke 1-0 in Saturday's final.

But United fans still managed to poke fun at another rival. A day after their team surpassed Liverpool's record 18 league titles, United fans hung a banner at Liverpool's stadium reading "19-18."
