So far, David Moyes has done well in the Cup competitions in which many thought United would struggle, especially in the European Cup for his limited experience in the competition. As it stands though, United are top of Champions League Group A and victory tonight at home against Real Soceidad will put them within 3 points of qualifying for the last 16 with 9 points to spare.
The other scenario of course is that United could lose today and in effect throw the group into a frenzy of some sort as suddenly all four sides will have a very realistic chance of making it through. Winning the double header against the Spaniards effectively eliminates them from the competition so you can expect a hell of a challenge from them. Soceidad were unfortunate to lose in the last minute in Germany last time out, but they remain Spanish opposition which United have failed to beat on the last 4 occasions at Old Trafford.
United on the other hand yet again head into European competition on the back of a disappointing league result. This is the second of 4 straight league games at home; we've disappointed in our first, fingers crossed we do the job in what has so far been a successful European campaign.
The worry on Wednesday is that Soceidad are a Spanissh side and hence are very capable of causing an embarrassment if we're not up for it. It's the type of game where you feel that Kagawa could thrive on so you do hope that he starts. Everything else will be up to the manager.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!
