Sir Alex Ferguson will be delighted after Manchester United were handed a relatively easy task for the group stages of the Champions League.

Would Vidic have done the same for Valencia?


There are times in life when an incident takes place which lifts your belief in humanity to a higher level – and thankfully, for all of its ultra professionalism, it can still happen in football. Despite the anguish that every Manchester United supporter must have felt at the defeat by Barcelona at Wembley, they would have also been impressed by the heart warming gesture of the Catalan hard as nails captain Carles Puyol in handing his armband to team mate France international Eric Abidal which allowed him to be the first to lift the trophy.

Irrespective of whether Manchester United win, lose or draw at Wembley in a few hours time, I’m going to throw something at my television or computer if I hear another word about this being the worst Ferguson side to win a Premier League title. ITS JUST A MYTH – facts and figures prove it!

Hungarian to take charge of United and Barca


A Hungarian official who is younger than some of the Manchester United veterans has been awarded the honour of refereeing the European Champions League final against  Barcelona at Wembley. Viktor Kassai refereed the World Cup semi final between Spain and Germany and was in charge of United in the Champions League against Spanish opponents Valencia earlier this season.

Valencia credits daughter for his comeback


Antonio Valencia is looking forward to the day he can raise his arm to his daughter again – but this time with the Premier League trophy in his hand. The last time he did it was to reassure little five year old Domenica as he was carried off on a stretcher in agony at Old Trafford. It was on September 14 last year when Valencia fell awkwardly following a challenge from Rangers’ Kirk Broadfoot suffering  a broken and dislocated left ankle. Now, eight months later, he’s on the brink of a Premier and Champions League double with Manchester United.
