Manchester United, Premier League Champions... Really?

                                                            The Magic Statue

The last 24 key match-changing decisions in Manchester United's Premier League games have ALL been in favour of the Red Devils.

Since the statue of Sir Ferguson was unveiled and the stand named after the man, nothing has been given against the Reds - the last decision was the sending off of Jonny Evans in the 6-1 defeat to Manchester City on October 23rd 2011 - 554 days ago.

This is the longest run of one way decisions EVER in English football.

United fans must be grateful to hear that the new Premier League chairman, Anthony Fry, is a United fan.

Thank goodness...
