    Martial and Mata please: 2 players who love playing against the RS :)

    And Rooney only on the bench despite everyone wanting him to break the record.

    If Mata plays it's instead of either Carrick or Mkhytarian.

    Which I'd take in the case of Mkhy to be honest.

    My prefered team would be;

    De Gea
    Valencia
    Jones
    Smalling
    Blind
    Herrera
    Pogba
    Carrick
    Martial
    Zlatan
    Mata

    Unbelievable set of options to come off the bench - Mkhytarian, Rashford, Rooney, Fellaini, Lingard, Schweinsteiger, Darmian, Rojo



    Anyone know if Luke Shaw is actually still alive?

    You beat me to it. I was going to post exactly the same players <grr>

    I wouldn't be surprised if JM went for Mikhi instead of Mata though

    Could he not score this magic goal in the reserves - that way we wouldn't have to keep playing him for three or four games as each of these landmarks arrives.

    Don't like making predictions in these games. I suspect it will be a **** nervy game with one goal in it.

    It will be ****ing nervy alright. It can go either way but surely home advantage is crucial in such a tight game hence JM s exhortation to the ot crowd. I suspect like many of these games the first goal will be crucial. Whoever score first could end up winning 3-0 or 4-0 as the opposition seeks an equaliser.

    Let's hope the orrible ****s don't score first then eh?

    Also a biased ref giving them 6 mins of added time and 4 penalties. Though clearly the refs are biased against them whilst helping them in every way possible.

    2-1 to us is my prediction. 2-0 up and then squeaky bum time in the last 20 mins

    And if they do, JM will probably need to change his formation promptly and throw the kitchen sink at them.

    Oh and the ref bias is already identified as the cause of a possible defeat.

    I think we'll win 3-1, possibly 2-0.

    A lot will depend on their team obviously. They've got decent forwards but I don't rate their defence or centre of midfield, especially if Henderson is out.

    Great news! We have Sourness claiming that the RS are favourites for the Sunday match and that 7 of their players will form part of a combined 11. And he enhances his credibility further by leaving out Pogba.

    Of course he is not courting publicity for himself/the Sun/Sky <laugh>

    He's clearly been drinking some of Paul Merson's hooch.
