Rooney and Evra are banned from this one due to maximum yellow cards, Elano and Corluka are out for City with the same suspensions.

We should win this though, 3-0 United.

That team is far too attacking, and is saha fit?

Rooneys been off-form recently and i thought Evra was shocking v Spurs. Never-the-less they are still big misses for us, but we should be able to cope.

I really fancy us to bounce back with a comfortable win here, and its the perfect game to do just that, I don't think Rooney being out will be to much of a problem, Put Ronaldo further forward up front like against Portsmouth and put Park on the wing, we will win, by how much i don't know. But i will go with


Man United 3-0 Man City

Ronaldo, Tevez, Nani.

This will be an emotional day and the emphasis wont be entirely on what happens on the pitch.
It would be a great testament and tribute to win for the Busby Babes that lost their lives.
It will be strange to see them wearing the retro kit but I hope they can do it for the great team of the 50's.
For most this will be a very bitter/sweet day regardless of the final score.
I just hope its a day to remember for all the right reasons.

...............van der saar
brown.... ferdinand..... vidic..... evra
ronaldo.... scholes... anderson ...nani
...............tevez ....saha.................

quit the crap fergie and pick anderson. lets all be honest he's better than hargreeves, he slows down the play too often. and to whoever said it was too attackin look at the 2 games scholes and anderson wer in the centre. wigan at home villa away. 4-0 and 4-0. anderson has been the best centre mid bar fabregas this season and fergie's still reluctant to put him in. i know he's only 19 but the boy is a class act.
