Man Utd's Red Devils hit a snag on Friday, in what should have been an easy-win FA Cup fixture against League Two team, Cambridge United. It was an away game for Manchester, though, and the Cambridge players used their home field advantage to rebuff United's scoring drives and force a 0-0 draw. Now, the two teams will have to face off in a replay-though at least the Red Devils will get to play that game in their own backyard. Root for the squad today, with a brand new Man Utd kit from Soccer Box!
Man Utd fans will love the versatile kit selection available at Soccer Box. From the ruby red home shirt to the white-with-black-trim Manchester United away shirt 2014 2015, our store is the perfect place to stock up on football gear. We have several other versions of the Manchester kit, including the green 2014 2015 goalkeeper shirt, both black and red training kit variations, and the blue third shirt!
Regardless of which Man Utd kit, you prefer, you will want to have the shirt in your possession by the time that Manchester and the Cambridge U's meet for their rematch. After all, the Red Devils' chances of moving forward in the 2014 2015 FA Cup are at stake here. And after being eliminated in the third round last year, the Red Devils have a few things to prove in this old and respected football tournament.
By all measures, the Devils were the frontrunners of this particular fixture. Even clad in the Manchester United away shirt 2014 2015 and playing far away from their usual contingent of supportive fans, the football club should have been able to pull out a win. After all, the U's are in 12th place in England's League 2-76 teams behind Man Utd's fourth place Premier League slot.
But the distance between the two soccer squads might as well have been nothing at Friday's match, as the away team struggled to come up with solid scoring chances. Angel di Maria, Daley Blind, and Robin van Persie all came close to scoring but were narrowly denied by a scrappy underdog side. Needless to say, manager Louis van Gaal and his team were visibly frustrated.
Luckily, though, things didn't get any worse than "frustration" for the team behind the Man Utd kit. The U's had a few close scoring opportunities of their own, and while a draw with the League 2 team was embarrassing for the Red Devils, and outright loss would have been the biggest disaster of their uneven 2014 2015.
The Replay Fixture
The bad news for Louis van Gaal's squad is that they will now have to replay the U's for a chance to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup. The good news is, they will be able to trade the Manchester United away shirt 2014 2015 for a home kit and the jeering away crowd for a supporting home audience.
Will the home field advantage give the Devils the momentum they need to beat the U's? It seems likely. After all, the club has won all but three of its home fixtures in the 2014 2015 Premier League-out of 11 home games.
Still, there are no guarantees. Most soccer analysts would have guaranteed a win for Manchester in the first Cambridge United match, away game or no, and that fixture obviously brought a few surprises. And with pressure mounting for the Devils to make a real impression in the 2014 2015 FA Cup, a few more surprises could be on the way for the early February replay. After all, the verdict is still out on Louis van Gaal's first season at Old Trafford, and the coach could start feeling the flames if his football team is eliminated by a minor League 2 squad.
