Moura needed from United’s floundering wide men

Tag: Opinion Piece @ 8:40 am

nani-bertrand_2524416bIf we were to conduct a survey among United fans asking how many still maintain an interest in the Champions League season, I suspect that the majority of the votes would drift towards “not me” or “I watch it but I don’t care”.

Chelsea v United: FA Cup Preview and a free bet

Tag: bwin,FA Cup,Match Preview @ 11:02 am

Chelsea FA Cup Old Trafford 2013After becoming the first team in history to win 25 of their first 30 Premier League fixtures on Saturday; United turn their attention to an FA Cup Quarter Final replay at Stamford Bridge.

In 12 meetings between the two sides since 1908 United boast an impressive record against The Blues (Won 8, Drawn 2, Lost 2) and won on their last two trips there in 98 & 99, the latter being a memorable replay after the sides drew at Old Trafford. United went on to win the treble that year and although that feat is now impossible for the Reds to duplicate, it seems there’s a real desire to add another League and Cup double both from the club and the terraces.

Both Benitez and Ferguson need this trophy for differing reasons and Robin van Persie believes the fans shouldn’t expect a classic thanks to both teams playing just 48hrs before kickoff, maybe that’s why the betting is neck-and-neck. Bwin are offering a free bet to all RedRants readers here.

United banish their Stadium of Light demons

Sunderland's Titus Bramble scores an own goal against Manchester United in the Premier LeagueWhat a difference a year makes. 12 months ago, United emerged winners from this very ground by the same margin that sealed today’s win, their mood sombre after City’s last minute winner had deprived them of the title.
