Ferguson calls for calm

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has written an open letter to the club’s fans, asking them to behave well when they meet Liverpool in Saturday’s 4th round FA Cup at Anfield.

Even those looking at Real Money Casino Games at Mansion will tell you that tensions between the rival clubs have increased in recent times, following the race row between Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra in October’s league draw at Anfield.

However, Ferguson did not refer to this in the letter, instead appealing to fans to help ensure United fans were awarded a strong ticket allocation for future matches at Liverpool.

In the letter, Ferguson wrote: “I wrote to fans attending the away match in October urging them to co-operate with stewards and officials at Liverpool, so we can make a strong case for restoring our allocation for future United games at Anfield.”

The Scot, who celebrated his 25th anniversary as manager of United just before Christmas, rejected FA calls for peace talks between the two clubs following the Suarez affair, insisting they were “uncalled for.”

The letter continued: “FA Cup ties are tense affairs at the best of times. Add in the fact that Manchester United against Liverpool is the biggest game around and it becomes even more so.

“Your support is vital to the team and down the years that has been especially true at Anfield.”

Liverpool and Manchester United met in the 3rd round of the competition last year, with a Ryan Giggs penalty proving to be the winning goal in a 1 – 0 victory.

Perhaps to calm nerves before the big game, everyone involved should head over to MansionCasino.com for a look at the latest offers and advice on an activity away from football.
