Manchester United face Blackburn Rovers on Monday at Ewood Park. So with that in mind it’s worth taking a look at these three players who we should be wary of going into the game:
It is hard to be a Manchester United fan and criticize the finances of football as we are as embroiled in the situation as any Club, but the plight of Glasgow Rangers brought home to me the fact that history is no immunity to financial failure.
The sadness I felt watching Liverpool celebrate the beating of Cardiff on penalties in the final of the Carling Cup (yes that’s Carling the quality lager), was quite cathartic.
On Sunday morning, a statement from the Football Association of Wales read that their manager Gary Speed had died at the age 42. It was news that shocked the world of football as tributes from players, pundits, and supporters flooded in for a player turned manager who was a well respected figure within the game.
On November 27th 2011 Wales manager Gary Speed took his own life at the tender age of only 42.
The tributes came flooding in as the footballing world mourned one of the greats. Speed epitomized the average British footballer. Loyal, hardworking and a very decent man too. He loved the game inside and out.

Of course on Saturday, Manchester United host Sunderland at Old Trafford where they will be looking to win to ensure there's no surprise on Guy Fawkes night. With that in mind it’s worth looking at 8 individuals who have both spent time at United and Sunderland in their careers in the game.
One of the interesting sub-plots of the season so far at Old Trafford has been the fact that Manchester United’s £30m striker Dimitar Berbatov appears to have fallen behind Danny Welbeck in the pecking order at the club.
One of the great contrasts about Manchester United's victory at Leeds in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night was that it gave both young and experienced players the chance to make an impression and show that they have a future at the club.
A second-string Manchester United side swept aside Leeds United at Elland Road to advance into the fourth round of the Carling Cup. It was a comfortable win which was sealed before half time thanks to a brace from Michael Owen and a strike by Ryan Giggs.
Manchester Untied play Leeds United tonight in the third round of the Carling Cup at Elland Road, in what no doubt be a fierce hard-fought match between the two sides, who have had many great battles in the past.
