Bruce Aiming For Old Trafford Glory

Sunderland manager admits he has tried everything to get one over Alex Ferguson as a manager but always fell at the final hurdle.

Bruce has already broke all sorts of records as manager for Sunderland but we have not won at Old Trafford for a staggering 42 years.

With our squad being young and full of energy and with the league creating so many shocks, anything is possible this season.


Bruce said: 'I have tried hard [to win at United] and not had one yet, and we will keep trying,' he said.

'To be fair, there are a few managers out there who have probably witnessed it - certainly nobody has beaten them this year, have they?

'We know what to expect, it will be difficult. But I always enjoy going back, even if I do come back with my backside kicked.

'For me, a lot of teams are beaten in the tunnel. You must, must go and take part in the game; you must go and have the courage to take the ball and take them on, and if you do that, then you have got a chance.

'Even then, you have still got to play to your maximum. Let's be fair, they don't lose many at home.

'But it's a great place to go and play. If you have anything about you at all, these are the games that you should enjoy playing in.

'Seventy-odd thousand at Old Trafford - fantastic, that's what you play football for and that's where you can go and show your skills.

'Last year, we played very well. To be fair, we have played very well at home against them twice as well, so let's hope we can maintain it.'

Sunderland will need to make at least three changes with Welbeck, Cattermole and Mensah all missing this clash.
