First of all, he predicted that David Moyes would be sacked the day after United’s defeat by Everton and he was. My son-in-law went on to predict that, having Ryan GIggs as interim manager would spur United on to a 4-0 win against Norwich at Old Trafford.
Giggs promised a return to passion, speed, tempo, bravery and imagination from United. However, it did take them awhile to get going though and Norwich gave them a run for their money in the first half. In fact Norwich nearly claimed first honours. Sadly for them, a slight push by Ricky van Wolfswinkel on Phil Jones meant the goal was disallowed. From then on, it was United’s day with two goals from Rooney and two from Mata.
Realistically, United will face much stiffer opposition than Norwich before the season is over but if they attack with vigour, the fear that clubs felt when facing United will return.
