Not for the first time this season, Sir Alex Ferguson has written to the fans of Manchester United that are making the trip to Anfield. The gaffer has repeated the action he took before the league game in October, stressing the fans to behave, so the club can protect the allocation of tickets we are allowed. For the FA Cup game on Saturday, we will now have a much improved allocation, an increase from October when it was reduced.

"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," said the letter from Ferguson.

"The fans did almost everything asked of them that day and, as a result, we have a much improved allocation for this important FA Cup tie.

"Please do everything you can to continue that good work and protect next season's allocation."

Saturday's match is going to be a massive game for both clubs. The first time the two teams have met since the recent rascism row involving Luis Suarez & Patrice Evra. Sir Alex has taken the measure to warn the fans not to misbehave so the club can retain the improved allocation for next season, allowing valuable support to the club in "enemy territory", against are fiercest rivals.

All in all a good measure taken by Fergie. He is such a monumental personality & is adored by the fans, that any would be wrong doer's may just listen to him.
