The week ahead: Key dates for the diary


It would have been the 75th birthday of one of the greatest of all Reds, George Best, today. One of the most talented ever to play the game, ‘El Beatle’ made 470 appearances for United and scored in the 1968 European Cup final, as we became the first English team to win the trophy after beating Benfica 4-1 in the Wembley final.


It’s the end of our domestic season, as we travel to Molineux to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers, with kick-off at 16:00 BST. With United having already qualified for the Champions League, and Wolves safely esconced in mid-table, you might think that there’s little riding on the game, but there is a chance of history for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

A win or a draw would see us become just the fourth team in English top-flight history to go through a whole campaign without losing away from home, after Preston (1888/89) and Arsenal (twice, in 2001/02 and 2003/04).
