it's moyes's waterloo. if he can't get them up for this one then he truly is a dead man walking.

 

still wary of talking about this one until we've got past this upcoming round of internationals and hodgson's latest folly though.

Imagine being in Moyes' shoes for this one knowing how well we spring forward and their fans demand to play attacking football. Rodgers has 2 weeks to plan this.

 

This could be the least nervous I have been ahead of an Old Trafford game since we played them in the League Cup in September.

They are going to want to derail our possible title push, we will want to grind them a little further into the mire, there is quite a distance between us in the table but there is so much on this for both teams, it is still going to be a huge game.

 

Just the thought of this game fires us up and a 2 week wait is only going to make it all the more huge!

I cannot recall the last time we went there with genuine expectation as opposed to hope. If we turn up we could actually take these apart. Their defence has been makeshift all year and our attack is just devastating. I'm still worried about this one.

This is the ultimate role reversal.

Over most of the last two decades we got up for these to give them a bloody nose and hurt their title aspirations.

Shoe is on the other foot, they'd love to stick one over on us here. Gonna be a war.

A lot of their players on last hurrahs and proving points with them, for us we need an early goal then counter attack our balls off.

Won't be a pushover and they have the individual quality to get a win - Ronney if bothered, RiP likewise.

But let's hope they cross to death again and we can exploit the spaces left behind their full backs with Suarez and Sturridge peeling off and getting one on one with whatever superannuated centre half they have in.

You've seen us defend crosses this season, right?

Me too. Quite a few mancs I know genuinely think we're going to tank them. Don't think I'd ever be expectant going there.

:lol:

 

Hopefully yer man Olsson can nobble a couple (THE couple?) of the decent players this Satdee lunchtime as well. If only Charlie Adams played for WBA.

Had a dream last night that we were playing them yesterday in the League Cup Final but that Rodgers didn't want tofield a strong team but save them for the league game. We lined up as follows:

 

Jones

 

Flanagan Toure Agger Robinson

 

Cole Spearing Sissoko Downing

 

Carroll Shelvey

 

I decided not to watch it cause of the team and checked the result on Teletext - we lost 2-1 with Momo scoring for us.

So then; we come to this.

 

Let's firstly hope our players get through international duty ok. f*** knows what shape United will be in when we arrive. But if we can turn it on we could really storm the place...

 

No date, no time

 

:redcard:

Out of all the games left this season, this one, IMO, will define our season. They will be going hell to leather more than normal (us in 1992 at home to them). Win this and the shackles on the dare to dream horse are well and truly off :)
