Spurs Game Is Huge Says Ferguson!

It hasn't been one of United's greatest seasons in terms of performances but nevertheless we are still just 2 points behind leaders Man City with a 13th Premier League title well within our grasp.

Tottenham have made great strides over recent years under Harry Redknapp and Sir Alex Ferguson believes United will have a big chance of retaining the Premier League title if they can 'survive' Sunday's trip to Tottenham and vc bet agrees.

It has been an extremely difficult run of fixtures for United and Ferguson always felt a six-week run of fixtures from mid-January onwards would hold the key to United's hopes of a record 20th championship.

Victories over Arsenal and Liverpool, plus a point collected from a trip to Chelsea when United found themselves three goals down in the second half, have left them two behind leaders Manchester City, who have, on paper, had a significantly easier time.

The roles will be reversed after this weekend however when after City host second bottom Bolton, they have a run of difficult fixtures themselves, which means that their is a real possibility that the derby on 30th April at the Etihad stadium will be very significant.

"It's going to be a massive game [at Spurs]," Ferguson told Inside United.

"If we can survive that one, then we'll have a big chance of winning the league.

"I would take it [being two points behind City going into the game at the Etihad Stadium]. I would rather go there on level points.

"But if we could go there within striking distance of being top of the league, I'd take it."

It is a huge game four United at White Hart Lane where stan james betting are predicting a draw, but there's no doubt that United will be looking for the win!

Saha's Hair Dryer Nightmares!

Sir Alex Ferguson is known for his 'hair dryer treatment' that he has given his players over the years at Old Trafford and although he has apparently calmed down in recent years, former United player Louis Saha has described his shock at feeling the full force of Sir Alex Ferguson's anger during his time at the club.

Saha signed for United from Fulham in 2004 and spent four-and-a-half years at Old Trafford as seen in the bwin review, and he enjoyed a good relationship with Sir Alex, but that didn't stop him from feeling the wrath of Fergies anger.

The Frenchman tells the tale of life under Ferguson in his new book 'Du quartier aux etoiles', or 'From the inner city to the stars'.

Recalling one particular incident, Saha says he was subjected to a furious tirade at half-time of only his second appearance for United at Everton

He found it surprising as he had scored two goals in the opening 45 minutes to help establish a 3-0 lead, although he could later understand why Ferguson was so cross.

"When I headed towards the changing room, I was feeling proud. As soon as I sat down, I was woken up in a violent way - Sir Alex Ferguson rendered me deaf," Saha said in quotes carried by The Sun.

"I was surprised but yes, it was me he was yelling and screaming at.

"He was going mad and I quickly understood why - he was unhappy because we came in with only a three-goal lead when we should have wrapped the game up.

"He was furious about my missed chances and reminded me that this is the very top level. Wow. I woke up even more sharply when 45 minutes later Everton had come back to 3-3. Goodison Park was on fire.

"Only Ruud van Nistelrooy helped me escape the nightmare - with a stoppage-time goal."

Saha left United to join Everton in 2008 and linked up with Tottenham during last month's transfer window, a move which has helped him rediscover some good form.

He will come up against Ferguson as United travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday, with many stan james free bets being put on him scoring against his old club!! Lets hope that's not the case!

Rooney Inspired By Fergie

Sir Alex Ferguson is in his 26th year as Manchester United manager and Wayne Rooney has been speaking of the great man and how he is key to Manchester United retaining their Premier League title.

Ferguson has transformed United into the most successful club in England of the last two decades, steering the club to an impressive haul of major honours including 12 championships since joining in 1986 as the bwin review shows!

Now with the emergence of cash rich noisy neighbors City, who are currently top of the Premier League, the title is expected to go down to the wire according to stanjames odds, but Wayne Rooney insists that United still hold the edge over City, and that edge is Sir Alex Ferguson.

"He is a great manager," Rooney told Fifa's official website. "He knows which players he can speak to and which players he can shout at, if he needs to.

"He knows how the players react and how to get the best out of them. That's important especially in this day and age.

"His mentality for the game, his commitment and desire are obviously things that the players try and take on themselves.

"For me personally, he's been brilliant. He is a great leader for our team.

"We are only a couple of points behind and we have a lot of games to go. We are confident that we can push on now, and start being a bit more consistent towards the end of the season."

Ryan Giggs Makes his 900th Manchester United Appearance

Ryan Giggs made his 900th appearance for Manchester United yesterday and marked the occasion in typical style as he scored a last gasp winner to steal all 3 points for Sir Alex Fergusons men and keep them as BetVictor favourites for the title.

The scene was set perfectly for Giggs to mark such an astonishing landmark with a top performance and he certainly didn't disappoint as he kept United's title hopes on track as he looks to win his 13th Premiership winners medal.

It is quite an incredible achievement to make so many appearances at the very highest level for a career that has spanned over 20 years, and the scary part is that he still has plenty to offer, and remains an essential part of the team. Just how long can the 37 year old go on for? It might be worth a bwin free bet for him to make it to 1000 appearances!?

He has already signed for at least another year, but the way he is playing and feeling, there is no reason why he cant have another 2 or 3 seasons in him at least as he shows little signs of slowing down.

You run out of words to describe how great his achievement is and just how good a player he is. Sir Alex Ferguson claims that he is the greatest British player of all time, while the likes of Zindane, Cryuff, George Best and many more sing the praises of the Welshman.

Giggs who was speaking after the Norwich game said himself:

"To play for such a great team, a great club and the team I've supported and grown up with, it's obviously special to play 900 games. I'll keep going and hopefully there's more goals to come. You've seen that from the celebrations right in front of the fans. And late on. It doesn't get any better than that. It's a feeling that won't change whether you're 17 or 38 like I am now."

Fergie still going strong

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted he has no plans to retire in the immediate future and believes he still has the hunger to go on for another two or three seasons.

The 70-year-old has arguably been the most successful ever manager in British football, with 12 league titles, two European crowns and five FA Cups to his name since joining the Premier League giants all the way back in 1986.

And United find themselves in the running for yet more silverware this season, with a potential Premier League and Europa League double still up for grabs. Anyone following the Premier League betting predictions need to bear this in mind.

The Red Devils find themselves in second place in the league table behind rivals Manchester City, in what looks like will be a two course race for the title, with Tottenham Hotspur as potential outsiders for the crown.

United also have a two-goal advantage over Ajax ahead of their Europa League last-32 second-leg encounter at Old Trafford, following an impressive display in the Netherlands. People who bet on Premier League weekend games should remember this.

With his team continuing to challenge for honours, Ferguson has seen no reason to leave his post at the Theatre of dreams.

The Scotsman said: "I think you always want to go out on a winning note.

"Hopefully we can do that. I don't know how long I can last now, but if my health stays up I don't think another two or three years would harm me."

Ferguson had plans to call time on his career 10 years ago but since deciding to continue, has enjoyed plenty of success with the club who now have 19 league titles to their name.

Hernandez Hungry For Success

In his first season at Manchester United Javier Hernandez burst onto the scene at Old Trafford helping Sir Alex Fergusons men to the Premier League title with his 20 goals, but he himself has admitted that he has found it difficult in his second season in England.


The 2011 bwin review shows just what a revelation ‘Chicharito’ was in his debut season but the Mexican insists he is not a victim of 'second-season syndrome'.


After his first season in the Premier League, Hernadez had little rest in the summer, playing in the Gold Cup and Copa America for Mexico. His pre season schedule at United therefore meant that he was behind the rest of the squad in terms of fitness and freshness. Then once he has been fit, he has been hampered by a number of injuries, which have limited his game time.

It was always going to be difficult for him to replicate those achievements, with the bar having been set so high, but even with the injuries Hernandez has still managed to score nine goals in just fourteen starts.


It seems that every time the ‘little pea’ is on the pitch, he creates an opportunity to score and he usually takes that opportunity. With United now close favourites with stanjames odds to win the Premier League and Europa Cup, Ferguson will need a fully fit Hernandez going into the final stages of the campaign and Hernandez is focused on improving not just his scoring but all aspects of his game.


"In my mind I've only one aim and that is to always improve," Hernandez told The People.


"Maybe people have their opinion of me and how I am doing this season.


"The second term at a new club can always be tough but while I am still scoring, I am happy.


"It's been a difficult campaign because I have had some injuries that have disrupted my rhythm but now I am fit again and feel fresh for the important part of the season coming up.


"I try to learn all the time from the coaches and players at United because, here, you can never stop. I am working hard to improve and I know there is more to come from me.


This is just the sort of attitude and focus that Sir Alex Ferguson will want from all of his Manchester United players, and there is no doubt that Chicarito will play a big part in the rest of United’s season.
