When and where can I watch it? Sunday’s fifth-round Emirates FA Cup tie against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park will be screened live in the UK at 16:15 GMT on BT Sport 2. MUTV subscribers can watch Match Day Live from 15:15, featuring exclusive interviews in the build-up and radio commentary on the game. The club’s official TV channel will show the full 90 minutes at various times from midday Monday. Fans can also follow the action via ManUtd.com's live match blog and the club’s official Twitter account @ManUtd. What happened when we last played Blackburn? The most recent meeting was in the Premier League in April 2012 when the Reds emerged as 2-0 victors but you’d have to go as far back as 2006 to when Rovers last came out on top. On that day David Bentley scored a hat-trick in their 4-3 win in the Premier League. Of course, a lot has changed since then – Blackburn were relegated from the top flight at the end of the 2011/12 season and have been in the Championship ever since. Rovers have got pedigree… It’s true Blackburn are one of only six clubs to have won the Premier League title and they can count the likes of Alan Shearer, Tugay and Damien Duff among their former great players. But history won’t help them – or United - on Sunday when the occasion will be all about the current squads. What kind of form are Blackburn in? It has been iffy this season to say the least and if the league table never lies, then their position in the EFL Championship’s bottom three, with a very real threat of relegation, means that United will be strong favourites to go through to the next round. Additionally, Owen Coyle’s men have won only two out of their last ten league matches, including a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday...
When is it? United's Europa League Round of 32 first-leg match will kick off at Old Trafford this Thursday at 20:05 GMT. It will be broadcast live in the UK on BT Sport, but you can also follow it via ManUtd.com's match blog and the club's Twitter account @ManUtd. MUTV subscribers can watch Match Day Live from 19:00, featuring radio commentary on the game, and see the full 90 minutes from midnight. How did we get here? The Reds finished second in Group A with 12 points from 18, which was one fewer than Fenerbahce. That led to us being drawn against Group C winners Saint-Etienne, who finished ahead of RSC Anderlecht, FSV Mainz 05 and Gabala SC. Any early team news? Phil Jones missed United’s 2-0 win over Watford with a problem he sustained in the 0-0 draw with Hull City, so it remains to be seen whether he will be fit for Thursday. Wayne Rooney has also not played since that stalemate against the Tigers due to illness, although he was on the bench at the weekend. Other than an injury to third-choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira, Jose Mourinho does not have any other known concerns. Did we tweak our Europa League squad recently? That’s right. In early February, after the January transfer window had closed, United submitted an updated squad to UEFA for the remainder of the Europa League campaign with two new players involved: Bastian Schweinsteiger and the aforementioned Pereira. Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay were both removed from the list after both left the club last month, as did Sam Johnstone given he has with Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season. Have we met Saint-Etienne before? United played Les Verts in the 1977/78 European Cup Winners' Cup and United progressed with a 3-1 aggregate win. That tie is memorable as the second...
Manchester United vs Watford Premier League 15:00 Saturday 11th February We are on a 15 game unbeaten run in the league, the longest across Europe's top five divisions, but have only one win in our last 4 and have drawn 6 of our 12 home games. Watford beat United earlier in the season and have won their last 2 games including away at Arsenal. Everyone is available for United except Phil Jones who is injured whilst Watford have added Niang and Cleverley to their squad in January. Even though we are at home, this will be much tougher than Leicester in our last game. Personally I hope to see an attacking line up again with Rashford or Mkhitaryan providing support to Zlatan, rather than the three man midfield we have often seen. It will likely be a tight game which could go either way so I'll guess in the middle and say another Old Trafford draw 1-1.
Leicester vs Man Utd Premier League 4:00pm Sunday 5th February Live SS1 Leicester have been awful all season. We will win this one. Not sure what else there is to say. I'll put a fancy banner at the top to fill some space.
Well, I don't know if there is a Lionel Messi thread on here so, I will create one instead. We all know that the one thing that is missing from his trophy cabinet is the World Cup, and lets face it, if there is one young player who has won everything, it is Gerard Pique, who has won all there is to win including the European Championship and World Cup with Spain. However, this is about Lionel Messi and his statistics. So, here goes. Newell's Old Boys 'A' team, Played 176 games and scored 234 goals at 1.33 goals per game. Debut for Barcelona including the youth teams, plus Barca C and B. 106 games and scored 105 goals at 0.99 goals per game. Professional career for Barcelona since 2003-04. He has played 608 games and scored 514 goals at 0.85 goals per game. He has also assisted an incredible 243 times. There are literally hundreds of other assists he has provided and the other strikers have missed, which could mean a potential 350-380 assists. For his national team, he has played 139 matches, scored 73 times and assisted 57 goals, plus other assists that should have been scored. Since his debut in all football competitions, he has played 1,042 matches and scored 949 documented goals at a rate of 0.91 goals per match. It is all very well asking if he can do it on a wet, windy night at Stoke, but I would love to see any of our players or trop European players try to do it 13,000 feet above sea level. Rooney would be falling over after 2 minutes puffing and wheezing like an old man who has been smoking 60 fags a day.
