Talk of revenge filled the air when fate decided that Germany’s Bayern Munich and Manchester United should meet in a blockbuster quarter final during this weeks European Champions League draw. The two glamour clubs had produced that dramatic 1999 Nou Camp final where United completed a historic treble in the dying seconds of a game which appeared certain to reward Bayerns almost entire 90 minutes of dominance with a deserved 1-0 victory until football proved that miracles can and do happen!
Just seven matches remaining in the Premier League, a maximum of twelve before the season comes to an end and you can rest assured that nervous Manchester United fans, never mind manager Sir Alex Ferguson, will be counting every minute of them hoping that goal machine Wayne Rooney will be able to see the season out without any major mishaps.
Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane knows very well what’s required to take out a Premier League title, after all he has seven winners medals to prove that he has been there and done it many times during his playing career. You therefore have to pay attention when the Irishman is prepared to go out on a limb and tip his former side to retain the title which they have won for three successive seasons. What’s more, he believes that only Arsenal could put up any sort of challenge.
