Billed as relegation battle by some wanting some ‘bantz’, United’s trip to Sunderland provided a chance to head into the upcoming international break with a renewed sense of positivity and a much needed win. Moyes once again made changes from the midweek game as Jones, Nani and Rooney returned whilst Januzaj was handed his full debut. For Sunderland there were just two changes as Celustka and Roberge came into the team allowing Gardner to move into midfield. We welcome comments from both sets of fans.

Revenge wasn’t necessarily the right word to be using going into this game; after all, United did win there last year. Playing before City, this was a chance to open a temporary 18 point lead and continue the run of wins. Sunderland are devoid of form and goalscorers – fighting a battle at the bottom of the league, few saw Martin O’Neill’s position as hanging on the result of this game, least of all the Sunderland blogger we spoke to pre-match, but by the end of Saturday, Sunderland were manager-less and United a game closer to the title. As ever, we welcome comments from both sets of fans.

Sunderland vs. Manchester United preview & line up

Anderson battles away in the 0-0 draw with Sunderland
Manchester United beat Sunderland 1-0 last season, but lost the title in the dying seconds

Manchester United take on Sunderland for the 135th time in both clubs history. United beat Sunderland 3-1 in December with goals from Robin van Persie, Tom Cleverley and Wayne Rooney. This was indeed the last time both Rooney and van Persie scored in the same game, and with the Chelsea FA Cup quarter final on the horizon, its doubtful that this will change any time soon.

The Stadium of Light was the scene where United fans saw the team top the table with all games played, but in dramatic circumstances – finished in second place ten seconds later. We’ve put together a preview, including a great View from the opposition, team news, United line up and match prediction. We welcome comments from both sets of fans.

We welcome Sunderland to Old Trafford on Saturday, looking to build on Sunday’s fantastic result at The Etihad and at least maintain our 6 point advantage over Man City. Fresh in the memory of the players and fans will be Sunderland fans ‘doing the Poznan’ celebration at the end of last season as City clinched the title at the death. Whilst revenge shouldn’t be the motivating factor for the win this Saturday it is essential we continue Sunday’s form against a Sunderland side buoyed by a comprehensive win over Reading in midweek. Here we discuss the match preview, lineups and injury news – welcoming comments from both sets of fans.

With the FA Cup taking centre stage last weekend, the “Things” column was brushed to one side. Now league football is back on the agenda, the column returns for it’s second issue/publication/whatever you want to call it. As per last time, Rob will be sharing a couple of thoughts and we have another guest joining us, ManUtd24 – who’s focussed on Scott Parker. We’ll make no attempt to be neutral and we’ll attempt to link back to United where possible but otherwise enjoy our thoughts and ramblings for the second time.

Three games, six goals scored, no goals conceded. Importantly, three games out of three won. That’s how the record stands since the defeat inflicted on United by City. It’s been the perfect response, despite some rather uncomfortable viewing. Steve Bruce brings his merry group of ex-Reds to Old Trafford – quite fitting seeing as it’s Fergie’s 25th anniversary weekend. Surely Brucey & Co. wont ruin the party…

Berbatov
The two teams “hardest to beat” in the Premier League went head to head at Old Trafford; Manchester United won with a Dimitar Berbatov brace as an early onslaught never materialised into the goals it threatened, to stay two points clear of Manchester City having played 2 games fewer – and, significantly, 5 and 6 points ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea respectively with the London clubs set to face off against each other tomorrow.

Vidic

United, top of the league at Christmas, kick off the festive fixture schedule at home to Sunderland on Boxing Day. Sunderland themselves are performing well in the league and sit in 6th place, level on points with Spurs in 5th. We welcome back former captain, Steve Bruce, and his side for what should be a potentially tricky game.

The Future of Danny Welbeck

Posted on November 24, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Players, Sunderland   8 Comments »

Danny Welbeck’s future at Manchester United has come into question recently following some stunning performances while on loan at Sunderland. With attacking talent in abundance at Old Trafford, Welbeck was sent on loan this season to gain valuable first team experience at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has now made public his intentions to sign Welbeck on a permanent deal; a move the young striker has refused to rule out.
