Here's taking a look at the weather ahead of our upcoming matches.  The top image is the forecast for Manchester and the bottom picture is the two following days in Birmingham.  I'm no weatherman, but Sunday match with Sunderland looks like it could go off without a hitch.  Tuesday's trip to St. Andrews could be in some doubt if the weather system moves in on Sunday night.  Stay tuned as always.

I still have not seen a release from Manchester United confirming this or even an announcement of any sort concerning their pre-season tour.  I will be extremely disappointed if  United skip the west coast again this year (namely, Los Angeles).
