It's not common for United fans to endure a week in which they've seen their team lose twice. However, its fair to say that one of those defeats was fairly conceivable while the other was anything but.
The defeat at Carrow Road last time out meant that for the second time in this calender year, we've conceded leadership of the league table to City---our main rivals for domestic glory.
You do hope that we do not come to regret the fact that we've already lost three games and yet, they still remain unbeaten in the league.
The biggest task this weekend is to stop the bleeding that started last Saturday evening and pick up three point against the league's worst side at the moment. With Chelsea and City facing off a day later, its an opportunity to put pressure on the noisy neighbours by assuming leadership of the league before their high pressure encounter.
Therefore anything but a win on Saturday will have contemplating taking my own life for the first time since Basel knocked us out of Europe.
This weekend also sees the manager appreciated once again by the club who have chosen to immortalise him with a statute at the Sir Alex Ferguson end of the stadium. They've been many statues put around in honour of legends and the like but Sir Alex is right at the top of the list of those that deserve it. Full marks for his efforts and determination to see United at the top for as long as he lives.
We salute you Sir Alex!
