It appears that the omens are against Manchester United as they head into the final day of the season still grappling with rivals City for the Premier League title. The last time their noisy neighbours won a top division championship was back in 1968. Eerily both sides were level on points and United needed to beat Sunderland in their last game to clinch the trophy only to lose and hand it to City. Surely lightning can’t strike twice, can it? Sir Alex Ferguson will certainly hope it doesn’t as aims to add a 20th championship to his Old Trafford collection but is aware that the Red Devil’s fate rests in the hands of a former player. Ferguson will be willing Mark Hughes’ QPR to take points away from City and leave the door open for United to sneak in grasp the trophy under the nose of Roberto Mancini. The 70-year-old will be urging his players to give it their all in the North East and go down fighting with pride should their efforts prove to be in vain.
This week on FFC does Ferguson need flex United’s financial muscle to stay competitive with City and who is the Old Trafford chief targeting with a £10 million bid?

“Do you know what I was doing 29 years ago today ? I took a wee team called Aberdeen to beat Real Madrid in a European final.
“That’s QPR’s challenge – to do an Aberdeen. Of course the odds are stacked against them. City are in good form and are at home, but it won’t be easy for them because the pressure is on.
“On the face of it, though, you expect City to win and so do I. But as long as human beings are human beings you never know. You hope something stupid happens.” Sir Alex Ferguson hopes QPR can ‘do an Aberdeen’ and beat Manchester City on Sunday to hand United the title
