Ahead of the game between Manchester United and Stoke City on Saturday we at Truly Reds have invited the excellent Stoke City fans website to a session of Questions and Answers. The editor of Stoke.vitalfootball.co.uk Lloyd Reddin is providing the answers on behalf of his site and we thank Lloyd Reddin for taking time out from his busy schedule to provide the answers to our questions.
There was an explosion of joy at the final whistle at the Darwen End of Ewood Park. Manchester United fans have a reason to celebrate as they came away from Ewood Park with 3 points and in that process, extended their lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League to 5 points over nearest rival, Manchester City. The fact that the rival is City made the celebrations sweeter but the a word of caution, the league is not over yet so keep the celebrations in check.
Man United got what they want from their game against Otelul Galati, full three points, yesterday at Old Trafford. But we noticed some considerable points that need to be reviewed.
It seems Michael Owen, who Sir Alex Ferguson is waiting for the results of a scan on the thigh injury he picked yesterday, has no luck when starting a game with United unless it is in the League Cup. I hope it is not serious and he will feature soon. Although he has a good scoring ratio, I really can say it is Owen’s final season with Man United as Sir Alex Ferguson has a limit on waiting injury prone players (remember Dion Dublin, Jasper Blomqvist, Louis Saha and Owen Hargreaves!).
