  1. The FA cup was probably our best chance of winning a trophy this season that has now gone because this team of ours is incapable of doing anything at Old Trafford.We got lucky earlier in the season when they beat us 2-3, this time i fear a good thrashing is on the cards.

    As always we’ll go there with a cautious approach playing on the counter attack as they bombard us time after time.After the first goal before the break the floodgates will open so lets play an attacking game and go for it.
