Fran Koerner, Jr. of the Charm City Reds (Baltimore) give us a recap of the scene at their home pub for yesterday's match.

Charm City Reds turned up ready to watch Manchester United seek revenge against Leicester City. After watching the Foxes come back twice from two goals down at the King Power Stadium to stun the Red Devils just a few months ago, it was United’s turn to strike back and take the 3 points on this mid-morning match up. We poured in to Todd Conner’s as the pregame show begun to break down the recent announced starting eleven for the return clash. You could sense a sigh of relief as a 4-4-2 was displayed. 
The usual suspects begun to pour in, never to miss kickoff. The atmosphere was building inside TC’s as kickoff approached. Places along the bar were filling up quickly as Reds continued to come through the corner bar door.

We hung on every to every spectacular pass and finally erupted in to a frenzy as Blind’s over-the-top pass found a slightly offsides Van Persie for United’s first of the match. The bar was immediately filled with cheers, high fives and chants of “OH ROBIN VAN PERSIE!”
Just moments later we were once again celebrating as Falcao’s follow up to Di Maria’s strike found the back of the net. While we all elated with the performance the sense of deja vu was all too familiar. The feeling lasted a bit longer as Blind’s flick on found the back of the net as Wes Morgan conceded an own goal.Halftime rolled around and as usual the bar cleared out this time with a sense that United was due for more. Following the quick break, it was back to business. While United failed to score during the second half we continued to root on the Reds and as the final whistle blew, the celebration was underway. Glory Glory Man United!
