The Scene is Set!

The Scene is Set!

This weekend has shown just how quickly things can turnaround.

Whilst, on this site, we`ve adopted an attitude that might be described as cocky when it comes to that 20th top-flight title win we`ve always inferred that it`d be dangerous to count our chickens before they`ve hatched.

With Everton getting a well-earned 4-4 draw, thanks to some nightmare defending by us and with City strolling to a 2-0 win at Wolves, the balance has, once again, swung in their direction.

Mathematics show that if we lose to City, next Monday, in a crucial derby match at the Etihad, then we need City to slip up on the home run, a situation nobody seriously envisaged when we went eight points ahead not that long ago.

Naturally, the build up to the game, next Monday evening, will be intense, with parties, from both camps, upping the ante. Following the 4-4 draw yesterday, Sir Alex Ferguson was quick to start the ball rolling, remarking,

"We need to get a result at the Etihad, there is no question about that - we need to perform. There is no reason why we cannot do that."

"The game next Monday would always be a derby game of highest proportions and this won`t be any different."


One thing is for certain, it`ll not be a place for the faint-hearted!

Of course we need a result, 5hitty need to win, whereas we need a draw at minimum. 5hitty need to attack, and will be more open to counterattacks, it will be an intense game - no doubt about it, we have been many times before, its a very important game, I have a good feeling about this game, I reckon 2-1 United.

Sorry Louis, We`re Not Buying It!

Sometime today, or quite possibly tomorrow, we`re expecting Marouane Fellaini to be charged by the Football Association.

As we predicted yesterday, Manchester United proved to be the party-poopers.

AUDIO: Rooney disappointed with draw

A point earned against Leicester City seemed to be a little disappointing with Manchester United hunting down a top-four place.
