And Fergie actually starts the little'uns.
And Owen was fit and the main reason we beat Barca, that definitely doesnt happen in a season.
Fergie is so smart,he always tells us trivial things....
both Kagawa and Powell may make their debuts in this match .. just cannot wait to watch
Michael Keane, Sam Johnstone and Thorpe will be playing for England under 19's so they might not travel.
Blackett, Cole, Lingard and M. Keane are all in contention to go on tour.
Blackett is a good little player, I'd like to see how he does with a few of the older players. Well looking forward to seeing Kagawa he has been awesome everytime I've watched Dortmund (5 or 6 times in all honesty)
A game we can watch at a civilised time. Only +1 hour difference
I'd rather it kick off @ 2am and have no vuvuzelas tbh
Will there be any PS games in the early hours? Also cant wait to see Valencia in the number 7 for the first time hope he loves up to it, especially since he personally requested it
Nope. 9PM is the latest.
f**k sake I actually really love the late night pre-season games. Gives me something to do when I can't sleep
Rafael's out - Called up by Brazil for the Olympics.
cool. I am happy for him.
just for you ... but think of the n number of games watched during one season at uncivilised times (picking on your terminology for odd hours) by fans in far east (like me in Singapore).....
True. But i'm guessing you don't have to endure month upon month of shite weather? Plus your benefit of a low tax rate. Not a bad trade off.
Wonder what the team will line up like...
Powell is more AM than CM, but I wonder if he'll be played in a 4-4-1-1 / 4-2-3-1 or maybe, Kagawa wide left for a game or something?
I'm struggling to think who our fullbacks will be, given Jones and Evra played in EURO2012, Rafael is in the Olympics, Smalling is injured and Fabio has gone.
I'm expecting Anders or Ben Amos in goal. Rio and Evans in the centre of defence, Valencia on the right with Scholes and possibly Anderson in the middle (Cleverley is with the Olympics) and I'm struggling for an available left winger.
But the Euros and Olympic commitments mean there's a lot of places for young lads to fill in.
amos has gone to hull on loan hasn't he?
Evans can play left back, Valencia can play rb,, or Anderson can play left mid, maybe Macheda wide or something...
Or some youngsters. I hear Blackett might be going, and he's a lb isn't he?
I believe so, yes. I didn't know about Amos, might be another trip for Sam Johnstone then. It's entirely possible that Kagawa might even play on the left in the tour, as he does with Japan sometimes, that leaves the AM role for Powell.
