Red Devils have the 'lucky' Moscow dressing room...

According to the groundsman in charge of preparing the pitch for the Champions League final in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, Manchester United are in the lucky dressing room. The Sheffield United fan groundsman has claimed that over 90% of the winning sides have changed in the said dressing room.

However, the state of the pitch surface is another matter, apparently the ball is likely to bobble. Chelsea could be viewed as having a slight advantage on a dodgy pitch given their longer ball style with United playing more of a passing game.

Rooney can win it for United

Read my own story on how the 1999 Champions League final unfolded - another lucky omen?


  1. C'mon United!

    Scholes-Hargreaves-Carrick need to get tight on Ballack-Lampard-Essien as Drogba will try to pull players out of position leaving space for their midfield runners. Shut down their midfield-3 and United wins. Might be drab for the first half. But if we can impose our will early and get the tempo up, then Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez should have the game in the bag long before the end. Chelsea's entire game plan is to sneak a 1-0. We score early and they are done.

    Good luck United fans everywhere!

  2. Its a shame for UEFA right. Not getting the pitch in best condition for such a big match.
