Red Rants at related • 0 views
Earlier in the summer, United fans received an email or a letter from the club, asking the fans to show they were "100% committed" and renew their season tickets or memberships. I'm not too sure about the fans' commitment but, after last night's scandalous prices, we can safely say that the club is "100% committed".

Alexander Buttner and Nick Powell, scorers against Wigan in the recent Premier League meeting, are likely to start. Nemanja Vidic (knee) missed United's clash with Liverpool and faces 8 weeks out.

The Tactics Board- Is Fergie’s solution the 4-2-1-3?

Red Rants at related • 0 views
In only 3 games this season, it seems more likely that Sir Alex Ferguson's dominant formation this year will be an off-shoot of the 4-3-3. The last time that Sir Alex Ferguson used a 4-3-3 as his dominant formation was between 2006 and 2009, a period when the Red Devils won 3 straight Premier League [.
