As a game ,Saturday nights encounter between Manchester United and Norwich could go anyway. United have justlet go of David Moyes and Ryan Giggs has taken charge for the last four games of the season. There is no doubting that the players respect Giggs as a player, the question is can they play together under Ryan Giggs the manager? With Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata, Shinji Kagawa, Danny Wellbeck and javier Herndandez all vying for places in their respective World Cup squads. Old Trafford may blow a gasket tomorrow if United can come away with a win.
Norwich City have the worst run inof all the teams in relegation battle away to Manchester United and Chelsea and at home to Arsenal. It would appear on paper as if Norwich need a miracle to get through this run in and still be in the Premier League. But as Sunderland proved last week these things can happen. Norwich though were a little unlucky not to get something from the game with Liverpool last week. Snodgrass, Hooper and Wolfswinkel will be key if Norwich are to stay up, one win would probably be neough given the currentcicumstances down there.
I cant help but feel that the David Moyes sacking was a mistake, appointing Ryan Giggs for an interim job though was very smart as Giggs is a hero to United fans and the feel good story about Giggs, Neville, Scholes and Butt being back in United as a management team is the stuff of dreams. I think that Old Trafford will be absolutely electric tomorrow and I expect Manchester United to put Norwich to the sword. I think the players will respond to the new management and I am going to take United -1 on the handicap. This is not a strong play due to Norwich needing the points so badly in the relegation battle but it is still on I feel strongly enough to go with. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
