Carling Cup returns, and its Boro who face the Red Devils at Old Trafford.


United are expected to line out a weakened team based on previous seasons, and likely names to be in the mix include,

  • Kusczak
  • Fabio
  • Rafael
  • Evans
  • Brandao
  • Eckersley
  • Cleverly
  • Macheda
  • Gibson
amongst others. Some are thinking that Berbatov may play to boost his match
fitness after a knee scare earlier in the week.

United exited the competition at this stage last season to a tireless Coventry so
Fergie will be aiming to capitalise on last seasons efforts and return to the
feelings of 2006 when United last lifted the trophy.

The Devils have only ever got their hands on the Carling Cup on 2 occasions!

Nani Anderson Possebon / Gibson Welbeck



Manucho Berbatov/Tevez

Not the easiest of ties although we should have enough to grab the win, since we're at home.

I'd like to see us play this team: Kuszczack, Neville, Brown, Evans, Da Silva (which ever is a left-back- I forgot), Ronaldo, Gibson, Anderson, Nani, Rooney, Berbatov.

Bench: A keeper (excuse my knowledge of the youth team, I believe Heaton is on loan at Cardiff so Zieler maybe?), Da Silva, Possebon, Tevez, Manucho.

This is a good mix of youth and experience which should help us progress, avoiding humiliation like we had last year. Giving starts to Neville and Berbatov could help their confidence, especially with Berbatov making his home debut, hopefully he can grab a goal or two.

Manucho can have half an hour or so hopefully. I'm eager to see what he can do.

My team would be:

PIG.

Brown - Evans - Vidic - O´shea.

Ronaldo - Anderson - Hewson - Nani.

Welbeck - Berbatov or Manucho.

Subs: Zieler, R.Eckersley, Gibson , Possebon, Brandao.

That would be a good team, i hope that Hewson and Welbeck play for this game is good for them to show what they can.

ticket prices for this game that are now on general sale are ludicrous

Adult £10
Child (6-16) £5
OAP's (65+0 £6
Kids (0-6) Free


Why not? Fill the place and get the money...every little helps

why not give the chance for fans who wouldnt get to a league game chance to go.

£10 per ticket and fill the place. May as well rather than it being half empty.

P.S You cant beat a nice pint of calring can you

I wish somebody would just come out and say "Manucho has a (insert injury here) and will be out for approx. (insert amount of time here)." {Although that might be pointless because he might be back REALLY soon :p}

The only person from the club whos said anything about Manucho was David Gill, who said that Manucho had a slight injury.

I hope hes back soon, because I think he'll be a great player for us, and I've said all summer that I'm more excited about seeing him play for us than a potential new signing, and I stand by that.

As for Brown, I have no idea why Sir Alex wouldn't pick him. Only he knows that.

Hes done nothing wrong performance-wise, and should have played today (Even though Neville did quite well) but hopefully they haven't had a fall-out.

Nice. I love it when a game comes so quick after the last.
Should be an interesting game. Im sure Boro will take it more
seriously than us. This cup is a great way to try out the youngsters
an see what they are made of. Im looking forward to seeing Manucho
in action as well as the young Brazilians.
I can see this being a draw, which wouldnt be ideal, but its a United game
so Ill look forward to it. I just hope Fergie puts a few first teamers out
or even Ronaldo to get more games under his belt.
