THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME OF OUR SEASON---TOTTENHAM VS MAN UNITED PREVIEW!
The club, Manchester United has already played the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Man City,but Sir Alex Ferguson has branded today's fixture against Spurs as our most important game of the season. Ideally, those are not the kind of words we fans would like to hear as our squad is somewhat depleted going into this fixture. Berbatov--a player who will get stick from former fans--is doubtful but at least I can bet my shoes that he will play today! Wayne Rooney is suspended and so is Patrice Evra. Brown is still out injured and Carrick has a 50% chance of sitting out. In short, it may not be the side that anyone of us would pick for a game. Spurs have already cost Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool points so something does tell you that they will know how to get the job done. They've got this pacy counter-attack that I think will provide for an entertaining game--the question is shall we come out on top?
United do have a good record at White Harte Lane but last season, this was one of the grounds where we dropped points.
The main issue however is that we fly to Japan on Sunday and will therefore fall another game behind come next weekend. Fergie feels that if we go to the far East when we have dropped points, it will dent our title hopes come the new year as we shall be far behind our title rivals. I buy his view and so should all United fans. The fans who will make the journey to the capital should cheer on our lads as though it were the CL final as I think that this game could define our season. Come on United! GOOD NEWS THAT EVDS WILL BE AROUND FOR ANOTHER YEAR!
