“The first-team squad split into two and headed to the Young Oncology Unit at The Christie and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital armed with hundreds of United goodies ranging from iPads to cuddly toys which had been wrapped by the club’s young players and staff at Carrington.” (x)
I’m gonna make a comeback
I’m gonna dig six feet up tonight
I’m gonna get it all back
I’m gonna make a comeback this time
Manchester United 3-1 QPR
SEASON 2011 - 2012 || 24~ Darren Fletcher
On behalf of Darren Fletcher, Manchester United wishes to announce that he is taking an extended break from football for health reasons.
Making of “Stars & Strikes” with Betfair.
“The time has flown since my debut and I’ve enjoyed everything about playing for Manchester United. It’s all I’ve ever known and it’s become my home. It’s an achievement I want to build on. The next target has to be 350, then 400 and so on – you always want to keep going.”
“We don’t want to give City the confidence of winning trophies to get to our level. Our job is to keep Manchester United on top and as long as we keep on winning the big titles, it means they’re not winning them. If City were to go on a run of winning a lot of trophies, then they would become a global club.”
“But for world recognition, United stands out alone. The great thing about United is the history of the club. No one can take away the Busby Babes, the Munich tragedy – all of these things are engrained in the club’s history.”
“United are known all around the world for its history and success, which is what makes it so strong and such a special club. Teams like Chelsea have won trophies and built on that success, but that’s been maybe over a 10-year period. They still don’t have the global appeal and size of Manchester United and that’s how we want it to stay.”- Darren Fletcher
