Manchester United's Only Chance Against Bayern Is to Attack at Old Trafford

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalMarch 27, 2014

Facing Bayern Munich is a terrifying thought for most Manchester United fans right now. Beaten comfortably by both Liverpool and Manchester City in recent home games, United are clearly vulnerable, and the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final could be a bloodbath.

So, what can under-fire manager David Moyes do to avoid embarrassment? What can he do to give his team even the slightest hope of progress?

I say attack. I say he should go at Bayern with a high tempo and tell his United team to attack them as they would West Brom, Norwich or Fulham. Yes, they may well get hammered, but at least they'll have sent a message of intent.

And who knows what an early goal or two could do to his team's fragile confidence.
