Ahead of the 2013-2014 season, The Republik of Mancunia has produced a top quality preview to cover all areas of what we can expect from Manchester United this season.
Published writers, who also happen to be red, take a look at the appointment of the new manager, the areas of defence, midfield and attack, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of our title rivals.
This country’s finest journalists have given their season predictions, looking at the decision to appoint David Moyes, the absence of Sir Alex Ferguson, the problem with Wayne Rooney as well as their suggestions for our most important player.
Several fans discuss their thoughts on the pre-season, which areas of the pitch they would like to see improved, who they expect to shine and overall predictions for where we will finish in the table.
Also, with tomorrow’s Community Shield against Wigan in mind, there is a brief look at United’s history in this season opening game. United were the first team to ever win the (then named) Charity Shield and in the past 30 years have played in this game an incredible 19 times.
