I believe Ferguson is on a win win here and will pick a side of first team players and squad members. He has treated this competition with contempt over the years so going out will not hurt him,

but if he wins then hes beaten Liverpool with a reserve side. If he loses then hes probably kept his mate in a job and ensured we are still no longer a threat to him.

Think you are a mile off there.

he'll want his team to humiliate us and then he'll use his pals in the media to blame the mess we're in on Rafa and advocate the t*** gets more time. at this rate he won't just see us off our perch, we'll be prostrate at the bottom of a busted cage.

What's the chance that Michael Owen will play?

 

I think Fergie will deffo play him as it'll be the ultimate humiliation. Personally, I think Fergie only bought him so he didnt come back to us so his money's worth on this occasion would be welcomed I'm sure.

 

I think we'll go out all guns blazing but worry about how we'll react if/when we go behind.

We should counter their reserve/not care attitude by sacking our manager tonight and going in with Sammy Lee in charge. If we lose then what did everyone expect? We had no manager.

 

If we win? The ultimate humiliation.

I like this way.

Ferguson told Inside United Magazine: “It was a bad result last season against Leeds, especially considering the rivalry between the two clubs,

 

“In hindsight I could have picked a stronger team. I won't be making that mistake this time.

 

“It is an important trophy so there is a strong desire to get our hands on it.

 

“We haven't won it since 2004, or been to Wembley in the final since we lost to Chelsea in 2007. So we definitely want to get back there. And we want to win it.”

You're not going then i take it

 

 

 

It's very sad on my part, I've already written it off. And if we play a weakened team tonight because of it, I'll be p*ssed if we lose points.....but will likely win the pool with Hodgson [i can't even call him Roy] gone on the 8th :)

they will be full strength and looking to put a score up against us. i watched them against sunderland last week and they destroyed them, could have been 6 or 7 up at half time

 

if they play like that we will be massacred

 

roy will be going there for nil nil and a replay to try save his job. the last thing ferguson wants is another fixture

 

this could be a horrible game for us and i think we will be well beaten, we dont score goals, we dont keep clean sheets and we dont play as a team

 

at least it will be roy's last game after we get spanked they will have to bin him
