Manchester United vs. FC United of Manchester

FC United managed to tie 1-1 against Brighton and are one win away from the FA Cup 3rd.

However the draw for the FA Cup 3rd round has already been made and Manchester United is up against Liverpool.

Although I cannot stop thinking of what the reaction would be like had United been drawn up against Brighton/FC United and we had a Manchester United vs. FC United fixture.

Would there be the rivarly between the teams or sympathy for FC United from Man Utd fans?

Mesut Özil for United

Okay so its been quite a while since I've posted on here and a lot of things have happened in that time. So why not start by focusing on the World Cup and taking a look at potential players United should in my opinion be looking at.

Mesut Özil has been one of the players that has really stood out in this tournament and I for one have been hugely impressed by his performance. The goal he scored against Ghana was of the highest caliber, sure some might consider it lucky. However no one can deny it being a magnificient goal and one of the best seen so far in South Africa.

With Scholes recently saying that he will retire after this season ManUtd should take a look at Özil. Anderson has been touted as potential replacement for him but to be honest I would much rather see Özil in a United shirt. For one, Özil can score goals and he can also play as a winger.

Anderson has occasionally played on the left for Porto, although Ferguson has always played him in the the center of midfield.

Rumors have also been circulating that David Silva and Rafael van der Vaart have been seen meeting with David Gill. Both players would represent an excellent addition to the squad, however it does seem far fetched consider Manchester City pursuing Silva. Although I could see van der Vaart as a possible arrival taking into account Real's vast amount of midfielders.

With Mesut Özil I feel United could get a real gem of a player considering he is 21 years old, he still has room for improvement and can only get better. Personally I have him Football Manager 2010 and he has been fantastic so far. So Sir Alex, go and get him!!
