We [Manchester United] have our work cut out this evening. David Moyes leads the team out against Bayern Munich tonight looking for a spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League, and although everyone is expecting us to be beaten, I think we can get something out of the game. If I was Moyes, this is how I would set out the team.
Bayern Munich have already won the Bundesliga and are still unbeaten in the league. They are the reigning champions of Europe and everyone expects them to stroll through us this evening. Even a large majority of United fans. But I think we will win the game - here's why.
The supporters are the heart and soul of any club. Managers, players and even owners all come and go, but the fans of the club will always be there, paying their money and voicing their support. And although that gives them the right to show their frustrations, more often than not those in the stands will back their team.
Say what you want about David Moyes, but his comments following the Manchester City loss finally gave me a reason to stick up for him.
RUBBISH: Three Manchester United Players Who Should Be Dropped After Humiliating Manchester City Loss
Manchester United again lost at home last night, but this one had more of a meaningful consequence. Manchester City were the side who took the three points, and they did it in some style, winning 3-0. Here are three United players who should be dropped after their poor display last night.
David Moyes redeemed himself a little bit this week after Manchester United progressed into the final eight of the Champions League. However, all hope was killed when we drew Bayern Munich in the next round. Ignoring the European impossibilities United travel to West Ham tomorrow, and this is how I would line the team up in East London.
Although many had already written us off, Manchester United went on to beat Olympiakos 3-0 last night and progress into the final eight of the Champions League. We may be the weakest looking team left in the tournament, but there is no reason we cannot keep going in the competition and cause some shocks.
Tonight is the night. If Manchester United go out of the Champions League tonight then I think it will be the last straw for many supporters in terms of the David Moyes' tenure. We have looked awful for the majority of the season and sit sixth in the division, and if we lose to Olympiakos we can kiss the Champions League goodbye for next season. Here is how I would set the team up tonight.
It is finally here. The game we have all been waiting for. This afternoon we invite our friends from Merseyside to Old Trafford in order to put them back in their place and move up the table, and although Liverpool are currently flying, we are Manchester United and they will always be in our shadow. Moyes has a lot to prove but I think today could be the turning point, as long as he gets his selection correct. Here is how I would line up our players if I was the boss.
Compared to last season, the tables have most definitely turned in this hotly anticipated battle between two of the North West biggest clubs. The Red Devils won the championship at a canter last season, but under manager David Moyes, they are currently languishing in 6th. Liverpool, on the other hand, are fighting to win their first ever Premier League title.
People outside of Manchester United seem to think of Javier Hernandez as a player who is being treated unfairly at Old Trafford. If casual football fans can see that he is being wasted at the club, then why can't those who are in charge? Hernandez is a cracking little player, and I think if United, and David Moyes in particular, wants to build a new era at the club, then he's vital to that.
