Manchester on my mind

Source: Montréal Gazette

Here's why.

FC United of Manchester, a club formed by Manchester United fans unhappy with their American owners, arrived on Friday night with a bang. They beat Rochdale United in the first round of the FA Cup.

That means they are just one win away from going into the hat for the third round draw that just might pitch them against Manchester United FC

Just imagine.

On Wednesday, United play City in what has become the great grudge match of the Premier League.

Imagine that.

Also tomorrow, Stuttering City could develop a real fear of the West Midlands as they visit in-form West Bromwich Albion. After Albion's local rivals Wolves beat City last week, another upset is on the cards.

Unimaginable, a few weeks ago.

Meanwwhile, United host City's nemesis, Wolves visit Old Trafford on Saturday.

What is completely unimaginable is that son Kieran and I will be at the game. And Manchester United have made it clear that they take this game very seriously.

Can my beloved Wolves win? Can it be true I want the hated West Brom to winm too?

Well, we won't be guilty of a failure of the imagination, because tomorrow's blog is.... dateline Old Trafford.
