    Didn't know SAF's prediction is so accurate. The gunner really showing sign of crack when the Magpies held them to a draw. The signs are there now and the cracks will get bigger and bigger till they shatter.

    The defining period has come! Its our chance to go on a run and overtake them gooners. Let them self bomb themself.

    But seriously, if they dun drop pts in these few months, they're very hard to catch. I think the weekend we play Liverpool is very impt as I think Arsenal will be facing Chelsea soon.

    the boltoon lost was fergie's fault.... he fielded a very weak team, he tried to ammend during the 2nd half but boltoon park the bus in front to the goal... it was a little too late...

    looking forward to a series of wins again....

    Man U always 'rise to the occasion' with stronger teams, but often lose to bottom-placed teams....

    Hope they will beat Derby this weekend to maintain the momentum.

    United unveil Munich tributes

    Manchester United have announced plans to mark the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster on 6 February 2008.

    * United players to wear a retro 1950s-style kit against Manchester City on 10 February
    * Permanent, free exhibition telling the story of the Busby Babes
    * South Stand tunnel to be renamed the Munich Tunnel
    * Memorial service involving survivors, relatives of those who died, guests and fans
    * MUTV to broadcast free-to-air on 6 February

    The centrepiece of the commemorations will be the creation of a free, permanent exhibition telling the story of the Busby Babes. The exhibition, to be unveiled in the South Stand tunnel at Old Trafford (which will be renamed the Munich Tunnel), will be open to all visitors and designed to educate younger fans about the Busby Babes' early triumphs, the tragedy of the crash, the rebuilding process and United's eventual European Cup triumph in 1968.

    A memorial service involving survivors and relatives of those who died will be held in the Manchester Suite at Old Trafford. The service will coincide with the moment in 1958 that the plane carrying players and staff back from Belgrade crashed on take-off at Munich airport. Details outlining how United fans can join invited guests will be published in January.

    In addition, United's subscription TV channel, MUTV, will broadcast a series of exclusive, in-depth features and documentaries on 6 February, when all programmes will be free-to-air and without advertisements to Sky and cable customers.

    The Reds' closest home match to the anniversary is on 10 February against neighbours Manchester City, who provided considerable support and assistance in the immediate aftermath of the crash and whose former goalkeeper, Frank Swift – a journalist on the ill-fated flight – died in the wreckage. Following a request some months ago, the Premier League has agreed to set aside its usual rules on kit design to allow the team to wear a special 1950s-style kit in the match, free from sponsorship and numbered 1 to 11. The kit is a one-off and will not be available for purchase. All fans present at the 10 February game will receive a memento of the occasion.

    Club Chief Executive David Gill said: “The Munich air crash was not just about Manchester United. It devastated the lives of the 23 families of those who died, as well as those who never played again and united a city in grief. Those who are able to remember it say it was Manchester’s 'Kennedy moment': everyone knows where they were when the terrible news came through.

    “It is a heavy responsibility that those of us who work for this great Club and those who live and work in this magnificent city have to show respect, admiration and regret over that loss some five decades ago. I hope the exhibition will enable generations of fans to understand the place Sir Matt and his teams have in the Club’s history, from the birth of the Babes to his crowning achievement in 1968.

    “I believe that, in partnership with the families, fans, authorities, Manchester City and our sponsors, we have created a programme that will enable everyone to remember, pay respect to and learn about a wonderful side, cut down in its prime.

    “The sincere thanks of the Club go to AIG and Nike for their wholehearted backing for the kit change, and to the Premier League for allowing us to mark the event in a unique way.”

    Yeah back to scoring 4 goals. But allowing Derby a goal is really crap.

    Think Anderson is impt to us. Once he is off, midfield like a bit disorganised and disjointed.

    Could have been more than 4 goals actually. Rooney & Giggs each had a goal opportunity which were denied by the post. Sigh....

    Fergie is correct. They cork up and drop 5 pts in just a week! His prediction is very timely, just when they have to head north for 2 matches in a few days.

    Final offer for Wes

    Sir Alex Ferguson insists the club have made their final offer to Wes Brown over a new contract.

    The defender's current deal runs out next summer and come 1 January he is free to speak to other clubs.

    Sir Alex would like the 28-year-old to stay at Old Trafford, but admits the decision is now down to Brown himself.

    "Nothing has been agreed and that's entirely up to Wes," explained the boss on Friday.

    "We've had several meetings with his agent and that is difficult as you can imagine - some agents are difficult [to deal with].

    "He's rejected one offer and we feel we've made him a good final offer and it really is up to him now. We won't be going back [with another one].

    "It's a possibility [we could lose him] and that would be a disappointment."

    Brown signed for the club as a trainee in July 1996 and has made over 270 appearances for the Reds. The centre-back has been a reliable squad member throughout that time and is currently enjoying his most prolonged run in the side, ably filling in for the injured Gary Neville at right-back.
