A mixed week for Manchester United started with a fantastic Premier League victory in North London, only to be disappointed by an FA Cup defeat against the old enemy this afternoon. While Sir Alex Ferguson will be disappointed at the club’s exit, it must be said that it could perhaps prove a blessing in disguise for United and allow them to put all their emphasis in catching City at the top of the Premier League table.
Elsewhere this week Fergie has been talking about his class of 2011 and how he believes that it could create a legacy similar to the infamous cast of 1992. Sir Alex has highlighted the two Keanes (Michael and Will), Larnell Cole, Jesse Lingaard, Zeki Fryers, Paul Pogba and young Ryan Tunnicliffe as the future of United and who will all have big futures within the game.
This week at FFC we have seen a mixed bag of blogs that include why United should fight for Morrison; Pogba would be crazy to leave, while Dortmund ace dismisses United link.

“The issue with him now is the physical side. When he was 16 he had problems with his knees because he was growing, then he had some thigh problems. It was nothing serious, just a matter of waiting for him to develop into a man, which we are seeing the signs of now. He has a great physique but there is still more to come.” – Fergie talking about Danny Welbeck to Sky Sports
