Sir Alex weighs up £5m summer swoop & Do United represent the right move for Hazard? – Best of MUFC

Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted at the professionalism shown by his Manchester United side, in midweek, as they closed the gap to go joint top with City in the Premier League table.  After crashing out of the FA Cup it was vital to get a positive response and Fergie got that and more in a game that could have finished 4 or 5 in truth. The three points were welcomed and puts huge pressure on their City rivals who have looked a little nervous in recent weeks.

Elsewhere this week Fergie has spoken out ahead of next week’s match against the Reds and is hopeful that Patrice Evra will shake the hand of Suarez in order to stop the feud prolonging any further. They square up at Old Trafford next week and the FA in particular will hope this will pass off without further incident, in what will undoubtedly be a highly charged game.

This week at FFC we have seen a mixed bag of stories that include why Pogba would be mad to leave; the age structure in football is changing, while time and patience is required at Old Trafford.

Quote of the Week


“One comment on yesterday’s game. Don’t agree with all this negativity towards De Gea,”

“Admittedly he has made a couple of mistakes this season but listening to some people you would think he had a nightmare yesterday.

“I’m not having either goal was his fault. The problem is, once you get labelled, mud sticks and now any tiny mistake is magnified. Other keepers make similar mistakes and nothing gets said.

“In my opinion two bad goals to give away but to blame everything on the keeper is totally wrong. The lad will be a top keeper, he is only young. Harsh to blame him for everything,” Michael Owen in defence of David De Gea
