United keeping tabs on £10m Icelander & Fergie’s £7m dilemma – Best of MUFC

It was billed as the biggest game in Premier League history. For Manchester United it turned out to be an evening to forget. Monday’s demoralising loss at rivals City not only handed their rivals all the bragging rights but virtually presented them with the Premier League trophy. United appeared to be overcome by the occasion turning in a timid display that had Sir Alex Ferguson fuming as he almost came to blows with Mancini on the touchline. It’s not often that Ferguson rises to the mind games of his managerial counterparts but the Italian clearly irked him enough to spark confrontation. For once in his career the 70-year-old was on the losing end of his famed psychological scuffles. Reclaiming top spot won’t be an easy feat for the Red Devils after providing City with a massive boost of momentum with two games remaining. The war of words between Ferguson and Mancini over who has the easier run-in is akin to a meaningless schoolyard spat. Maximum points from Swansea and Sunderland is require to give United a fighting chance.

This week on FFC debate has arisen over whether Wayne Rooney should have been the incumbent of a top end of season award and Hernandez puts his contemporaries to shame.

Quote of the Week


“I don’t think we have easy games.  If you go to Sunderland on the last game of the season, with the support they have and the manager they have got, you don’t expect an easy game and the way Swansea has played this season has been admirable. City have got two games left. If they win their two games they win the league.” Sir Alex Ferguson hits back at Roberto Mancini’s claim that Man Utd have an easier run in that title rivals City
