QPR 0-2 Man United
QPR: Manager, Harry Redknapp
According to various media reports Harry Redknapp believes QPR”s survival depends on a late season return to form as currently QPR sit six points from safety with only twelve games remaining for the season.
Redknapp was able to achieve a last minute turn around when he was with Portsmouth in the season of 2005-2006. To achieve another turn around such as that remains a possibility but hardly a probability.
So far this season QPR have scored just 19 points from a total of 26 games. If indeed QPR are not to be disgraced when they meet top team Man United this coming Saturday much will depend on striker Loic Remy putting on a top performance.
Man United: Manager, Sir Alex Ferguson
Man United are riding high at present with a 12 point lead and sitting on top of the English Premier League table: even better is the fact that the whole Man United team is fit with some players performing at their scintillating best, best example, Wayne Rooney who has been given the title of “the freckled demon” by the Spanish press who go on to describe him as being “built like a barrel packed with gunpowder.”
Sir Alex Ferguson has a fit team of enormous depth which no doubt is the envy of all other managers in the English Premier League.
An interesting slant on Sir Alex Ferguson’s approach to the brilliance associated with being a top manager is to be found in an article seen in various media outlets in which he gives his considered view on the dangers facing young footballers today and speaking of his on-going battle to keep the Man United young “stars” away from temptation, offering the sage advice that it is keeping youngsters “on the path to success not self destruction.”
Sir Alex Ferguson is truly a stand-out as he has taken Man United to a clear lead at the top of the English Premier League table, kept cohesiveness and team spirit in top form along with managing injuries (or the lack of them) under control to an amazing degree.
He will assume nothing in relation to the game against QPR and Man United will be putting in (as always) a 100% effort to win.
