Old Trafford could it be a god time to visit?

Another statistically terrible Fulham opponent but I was there that happy day in 2009

Old Match Reviews

A great arena to watch football but not necessarily a comfortable place for our team to perform in. Ah, that joyous day eighteen years ago, which recorded our second away win in the same year (but not the same season!).

That was our first league visit there in aeons, our very first season in the Premier League and our first game of the 2001-2002 season.

Wasn't that a game? With Louis Saha and the lads on brilliant form we took the lead, Saha scored a brace and although we lost 3-2, we'd given the Red Devils a run for their money and that was a pretty decent United team (see the line-ups below) it certainly laid down a marker.

Unfortunately for us, the cutting edge of our adventurous play posted too irrestisible an advertisement and Fergie made Louis Saha an offer he couldn't refuse eventually, we needed the money for renovations to Craven Cottage.

The other fact is that we've not won up there since so come on guys, let's put that right!
