Yes i think e verything said above is true except from the four goals, im going to say five goals this time, Bolton will score though i think 5-1

Tevez (2)

Kevin Davies to score consolation :D
The only reason I go for 4 is our attitude. If we get 3 or 4 first half, we will go to sleep, subs will be made and the second half become academic. NO Rooney either to keep it alive.

Vidic Could Miss Man Utd Fixture

Vidic has been a crucial member of the United defence this season

Nemanja Vidic could miss Manchester United's game at Bolton on Saturday.

Vidic is part of the Serbia squad whose Euro 2008 qualifier against Kazakhstan
has been rescheduled for the day of United's trip to the Reebok Stadium.

The group A match was due to be played last Saturday but had to be cancelled
because of heavy snow in Belgrade.

However, if Serbia fail to beat group leaders Poland, or Portugal take a point from
Finland on Wednesday, the Kazakhstan tie will be meaningless.

That would raise the possibility of Vidic being freed by his country to rejoin the
United squad for their Premier League encounter with Gary Megson's Bolton.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be loathe to lose the 26-year-old defender,
who has played in all but one of the club's league games this season.

After Saturday's postponement Uefa attempted to stage the qualifier on Sunday
but with 14cm of snow still lying on the Partizan Stadium pitch, those plans also
fell through.

If the game against the Borat's is meaningless, which in all likelihood it will be, then Vidic should be allowed to play for United.
The Borats lmao.
Speaking of Ali G did you see Staines got to the second round of the FA Cup and are playing Stockport live on Sky lol. They are all dressing up as Ali G and have banners saying 'The Staines Massive' :D

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will decide whether Nemanja Vidic plays for Serbia at the weekend.

Vidic is part of the Serbia squad whose Euro 2008 qualifier against Kazakhstan has been rescheduled for the same day as United's league match with Bolton.

The Group A match was due to be played last Saturday but had to be cancelled because of heavy snow in Belgrade.

Uefa said because the new date falls outside an international window Serbia have no automatic right to keep Vidic.

Pick him Fergie! The game against Kazakhstan will probably be meaningless anyway.

Bolton v Man Utd

Reebok Stadium
Saturday, 24 November
Kick-off: 1500 GMT
BBC coverage: BBC Sport website, BBC Radio Five Live & highlights on Match of
the Day. Featured game on Score and Final Score.

Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka is fit again after a hamstring injury and should return
to the starting line-up.

El-Hadji Diouf is also set to return after completing a one-match ban.

Manchester United team news to follow.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, McCann, Michalik, A O'Brien, Meite, Gardner, Cid,
Campo, Guthrie, Nolan, Speed, Alonso, Diouf, Davies, Anelka, Al Habsi, Samuel,
Teymourian, Braaten, Giannakopoulos.


The 109th league meeting of these two Greater Manchester rivals could see
United at the top of the table and Bolton still below the safety line at the final

No club has won more Premier League matches this season than Manchester
United (nine), and no club has won fewer than Bolton (one).

Bolton have drawn four and lost one of five games since the appointment of Gary
Megson, and are chasing a first win under the new manager against the tightest
defence in the Premier League.

Manchester United are unbeaten in 10 league outings; Wanderers are pursuing a
first win in 10.

The Trotters have conceded more Premier League goals to Manchester United
than to any other club (40).

Bolton are making a ninth attempt to clinch a first ever home Premier League
victory over Manchester United. They've not taken maximum points off the Red
Devils in front of the home faithful since a 3-0 top flight triumph on 22 December
1978. A brace from Frank Worthington and an Alan Gowling goal decided the
issue 29 years ago.



Highest realistically achievable after Saturday's matches: 15th
Lowest could fall: 20th

1. One of only two clubs with just one Premier League victory; the other is Derby.
Also, one of three clubs with just one home Premier League victory so far this
season. The others are Middlesbrough and Derby. Reading are the only club to
have left the Reebok without any points.

2. Not won in eight; drawn three and lost five league and cup games since
beating Rabotnicki Kometa 1-0 in the Uefa Cup first round second leg at the
Reebok on 4 October.

3. Drawn five of the last seven Premier League fixtures, including the last three
against Aston Villa (h), West Ham (a) and Middlesbrough (h); it is the longest
current sequence of draws in the highest league.

4. Won one of 19 Premier League outings; winless in nine, having picked up five
points out of 27.

5. Eight points from the first 13 games equals their worst ever start to a Premier
League season in 1995-96. That was their first taste of football in this league,
which saw them finish bottom and suffer immediate relegation.

6. Averaging 0.62 points per game, having dropped 31 of the 39 available. Only
Derby exceed that; 33 points dropped. Eight points were dropped from winning
positions; losing to Fulham and Portsmouth - both away, and drawing, home to
Aston Villa.

7. Yet to beat a top half club. Drawn two and lost four of their six fixtures against
clubs currently in the top 10.

8. Won one of the last seven Premier League fixtures against north-west clubs; 1
-3, away to Wigan on 7 April.

9. Need to score one goal to total 200 in home Premier League games all-time.

10. This match precedes Thursday's Uefa Cup Group F tie, home to Aris Salonica,
and a Premier League trip to Liverpool on Sunday, 2 December.


Highest achievable after Saturday's matches: 1st
Lowest could fall: 2nd

1. Undefeated in nine; won eight and drawn one in all competitions, since the 0-2
home defeat by Coventry in the third round of the Carling Cup on 26 September;
their only loss in 15 outings.

2. Dropped only two points from a last possible 30, since their only league defeat
this term; 1-0, away to Manchester City on 19 August.

3. Kept eight clean sheets in the Premier League so far this season - more than
any other club; seven of those have been in the last 10 matches.

4. Opened the scoring in an unrivalled 10 Premier League matches this season.

5. Heading the Premier League's "Last Six Current Form" table with 16 points out
of 18.

6. Completed 53 league games since a loss by more than a single goal; 3-0, away
to Chelsea on 29 April 2006.

7. Meanest defence in the Premier League with six goals conceded from 13
outings, at one every 195 minutes (three hours 15 minutes) on average.
Liverpool have also let in just six, but from 12 matches, at one every 180 minutes
(three hours).

8. Yet to lose to a lower half club; won five and drawn one of their six fixtures
against clubs in the bottom 10.

9. Unbeaten in four league games on the road (three wins, one draw), and
already returned from Everton, Birmingham and Aston Villa with maximum points.

10. This match precedes Tuesday's Champions League Group F tie, home to

United's Premier League matches this season.

hat-trick in last season's 0-4 triumph over Bolton in this identical fixture last

United scored eight goals against the Trotters last term.
