Re: Relegation Odds

It would be refreshing if we have a real go at Old Trafford. The game is a ' free hit ' after today's win and rather than just sit back and accept a defeat with damage limitation, we should hound them from the kick off. Let's not forget that we've drawn the last three times we've been to Manure's g...

He was ok but he's not the right choice when we're playing a fullback who doesn't overlap.

Because he plays quite narrow and can't skin a man he needs a fullback on his outside as an out ball.
