There`ll be No Repeat

There`ll be No Repeat

Last season many would suggest that our title challenge hit an enormous hiccup when Everton came to Old Trafford and drew 4-4.

Some people suggest that draw hit us hard and handed hope to Manchester City and….well……….the rest is history.

As we prepare to face Everton again, at Old Trafford, Sir Alex Ferguson has intimated that the same will not happen this season, with the boss remarking to the media,

"It`s about anticipating the unexpected and we didn`t do that against Wigan or Everton."

"We were 4-2 up against Everton with seven minutes to go and that definitely cost us the league, no question."

"It was a bad blow for us and it won`t happen again."

"The team are really playing well, I`m pleased with the form. Sunday`s the next stage, then Real Madrid and then the FA Cup."

"It`s a terrific spell for Manchester United and you can`t but help feel this is the way we should be."


Let`s hope lightning doesn`t strike twice then shall we.

The players took their eye of the ball but alrarmingly so did Fergie. 4-2 up but Everton still looked a threat and everyone could see how it was going to go yet he failed to make the tactical changes needed for us to see out the win instead opting for more goals. Hopefully this time the same mistakes won't be repeated and we can see ourselves go 10 points if not 12 points clear.

Though Everton has almost same team as last season that drew 4-4 with utd.but same with utd with the transfer of RVP 2 utd is nt going 2 be same .if u check last seasons records and finds two last seasons top scorers in same team with same goal scoring form definitely there wil be positive change in results of matches.just as we seen this conceding many goals but scoring more than conceded..so hopeful utd wil take maximium 3points 2 go 12points clear thereby getting close 20 successive EPL title.

Can see this being a tough match. If Everton get hold of midfield like they did earlier in the season we could be in trouble.
