It’s difficult not to think of football when you think of Manchester. And why wouldn’t you? Manchester United is the one team in England with most Premiership titles. Will they win again this season? Vote on your favourite team in our ‘Poll of the month’!
Manchester United, also known as the Red Devils, has their home ground at Old Trafford and has been under the steady leadership of their manager Alex Ferguson for more than twenty years. Alex has won more awards than any other manager in the history of English football, including nine ‘Manager of the Year’ – awards.
United has several important players, such as Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Carrick, Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic. This season, Man U has bought Michael Owen from Newcastle, Antonio Valencia from Wigan and Gabriel Obertan from Bordeaux. Michael Owen has been granted the classic number 7, a shirt who before him has been worn by legends such as George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Ronaldo and Bryan Robson. Will he manage to live up to the expectations and responsibility which comes with this shirt?
Next weekend, Manchester United will play Bolton at Old Trafford. What do you think the score will be?
