Even without Rooney United fans seem very confident that they will win on Saturday. I am not saying CFC will win but we have a number of reasons why their over confidence could prove misplaced.
1. United have played 8 games in europe this season and the for the next league game they have won 3 drawn 1 and LOST 4. One of those losses was to Chelsea.
2 CFC have the best record of any club against ManU at OT in the premiership and also going back 30 to 40 years. We have taken more points off you at OT in the premiership than any other club and in the last 35 games at OT you have only beaten us 7 times.
3. This season we have played Arsenal, ManU and Pool 4 times and have 100% win record, scoring 10 and conceding ZERO. We play better against the better teams.
Saturday may or may not prove to be decisive in the final outcome but I do hope that the ManU players approach the game with the same over confidence that many of the ManU fans appear to have.
