Couldn't Bear A Repeat Of Last Season, Could We?

2007-08 was a wonderful season for Manchester United. We won the Premier League, retaining our title in style. We won the Champions League, beating Lyon, Roma and Barcelona on the way, staying unbeaten, winning all our home games. And of course we beat Liverpool home and away.

Yet there was a slight hitch. When an injury-hit United lost at the Eastlands in August despite dominating throughout the game it could be swallowed. We were unlucky but we played well and surely the future's gonna be bright.

The future turned out to be spectacular but no revenge was exacted when Citeh visited Old Trafford. Instead it turned out to be the lowest point of the season: on the day of remembering Munich fifty years on, we gave an absolutely dismal display and were deservedly beaten 2-1.

We had problems this season, oh yes, especially away from home. We seem to lack the hunger, the bite, the guts to fight, it seems like a contentment, a battle fatigue have set in. But all these factors should not serve as excuses on Sunday.

Quite simply, it's time to raise our game and give a big performance. Losing to Citeh in three consecutive games - it was bad enough doing this to West Ham between December 2006 and December 2007 but to Citeh it would be unbearable.

Of course the rivalry is less important for us than for them. Our wretched record at Eastlands do not bother me near as much as the one at Stamford Bridge which is much more meaningful. But that does not mean that we have to play badly every time we play City and give them ammunition to shout their mouths off. So time to awake from our slumber and pull off a big one.
