United have had a bad time
of it for the last few days.

1 - 1 with Blackburn, and
close to losing that game
as it happens.

Then a 0 - 0 with Barcelona ...

Twice the games were rather
scrappy - and United have
not looked too good either.

In fact they could have lost
both games.

Now we approach Saturday
and a 'Title Decider' at Stam-
ford Bridge.

They got lucky too let's not
forget. A last minute equaliser
at Anfailed, but no surprise
there is there, they are masters
of that.

Chelsea's job in the Champs
League seems a little easier
than ours, an away goal and
all that.

Will this give them a slight upper
hand when they play United
on Saturday ?

More importantly - can United
get back to their typical attacking
free flowing football that has
seen them score more goals
than anybody in the Premier
League ?

Stamford Bridge is a far cry from
The Nou Camp - but it is still one
hell of a fortress so can United
break it down - in their current form ?

United don't need to break this Chelsea fortress down. I would be glad for a result like 0:0 or 1:1. That should be sufficient -> it would de facto secure the most precious title again.
Hopefully Chelsea wil rather focus on Champion's League, which they desperately need to win to appease their petrolic baron.

uniteds last 3 domestic aways have been poor

1-0 win over derby, derby should of been 2-0 up !

2-2 in boros cup final

1-1 with blackburn,

we have won the league though due to goal difference etc... tevez's goal against blackburn was the title decider.

We have not won anything yet. We have been bad away from home lately and we're going to a side that hasn't lost at home domestically in 100 games. I think that is the hardest.

Old Trafford will be electric for the game against Barca and I think we are more than capable of beating them at home. The away game at Stamford Bridge will be very tight and the tougher of the 2 fixtures imo.

Thankfully, we only need a draw at Stamford Bridge and I'm reasonab;y confident we'll get it. I really don't mind if it's a boring 0-0 as long as we don't lose...although ending Chelsea's unbeaten record at the Bridge would be super sweet!!!

2 very different games obviously.
We dont need to win at Chelsea but we HAVE to win vs Barca.
Generally Chelsea away would be harder than anybody at home,
but one things for sure that these 2 games in 4 days are amongst the
most important duo of games in United's history.

I think he will go for 4:5:1 similar like Barca game, this will be a mistake if SAF chooses this formation because we don't play good whenever we use this formation. I think we can beat Chelsea who will be without Drogba and Lampard.

It all depends on the team Fergie puts out and the way he asks them to play. We should play our strongest side and go for the win. A trophy in the bag would give the players great confidence for the Barcelona match.

We can definetely beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.We just have to play our natural game and dont let them bully us.The Barcelona game is a must win game and i believe that if we win at Stamford Bridge,we can wrap up the title and rest many off our key players going into the 2nd leg of the United/Barca match.These two games will test our mettle and prove that we are the best

We'll we didn't do the above did we? Put quite simply, if we put a side and tactics out like that against Barcelona, we can forget any trophys at all.
