If we fail to win this then Fergie will be even more scrutinised for his team selection against Everton.Id go with Stephens side except Carrick wont play as Fergie said before the game so bang in Anderson whos had a couple of decent games recently.
We need Rio. Last 2 games have shown how important the Rio/Vidic partnership is.
If he is fit he will play.
Same with Rafael. He is young and has had the time to recover. He looked impressive today and we could do with his youthful exuberance against Pompey. We need to play our best team and at the moment Rafael>Neville.
people complain about Tev not playing yet everyone here has put berba in the first team - which I would too - he needs to move on from the disappointing pen, regardless what you think of his pen or who you blame for losing the FA Cup Semi's - he defo needs to get over it with another game
Starting line-up: Van Der Sar - Evra - Ferdinand - Vidic - O'shea - Carrick - Anderson - Giggs - Ronaldo - Rooney - Berbatov
I think this would be a very good line-up for this must win game against Portsmouth, Rio will play, he has had time to recover and we need him, since his return we hav kept 2 clean sheets, the Rio/Vidic partnership is the key for our succes this season, Anderson should play, he has played some very good games recently, Ronaldo and Rooney coming back from thier rest, they should be fit and ready, i predict a 4-0 win to us, we are in great form at the moment.
