Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta ready for United!!

After scoring once against Brondby, twice against Borussia Dortmund and grabbing another against Internazionale, the 28-year-old no.9 hopes to score the goals that will meet Juve's expectations this season.

"I feel very good, fortunately my injuries are in the past now and I hope I can get to the qualifying round 100% fit.

"We're all doing very well up front, we're still in the preparation phase, but all four of us will be on good form when it counts. Tonight we had more confirmation that we can challenge any team."

Iaquinta & Amauri: I am really, really looking forward to watching these guys play. :D

Massive fans of both. I just cannot believe Juve go and buy Amauri when they have Iaquinta, Del Piero & Trezeguet.

Iaquinta was benching it even when fit so clearly somebody's going to have to leave.

It's gonna be good tonight. We've had so many great nights against Juventus so anytime we play them its always gonna be special, Pre-season game or not. Hopefully we get them in the CL.


Anyway this is the team I want to face Juventus:


--------------------------VDS-----------------------------

--Neville--------Rio-----------Brown-----------Silvestre--

--Nani----------Flecther-----Scholes----------Evra--

------------------Tevez------Campbell-------------------




----------
Rio and Brown need games, Vidic has played a lot in Africa and Nigeria so he can miss this one and play vs Pompey. I also thought Silvestre looked off the pace vs Pompey so he needs games.

Hopefully Giggs actually plays on the left tonight instead of playing through the middle with Fletcher out wide.

I'd tell Tevez to rest a bit aswell, he's played in just about every pre-season game so I don't want to get knackered before the season starts.
----------



Then at half time I hope we make some changes and this becomes our team:

---------------------------VDS--------------------------

--Rafael----------Rio-------------Brown-----------Fabio--

------------Rodrigo----Scholes----Fletcher----------

--Nani-------------------------------------------------Giggs--

------------------------Campbell----------------------




--------
I would like to see Fabio and Rafael play in this as its most likely the last chance we get to see of them against quality opposition this season, and Rafael in particular I think has earned the opportunity to play in this match.

Take Neville off as he's just had a minor injury and he can play the full 90 vs Pompey, same with Evra, Silvestre and Tevez.

Rodrigo - scholes could be really interesting to see as I see a lot of Carrick in Rodrigo and lets face it, there's not better midfielder to learn from than Scholes.

I'd be tempted to chance Gibso and Fletcher at half time though.
-------

I'm not sure if your talking to me but just incase you are:

Lol I completely forgot about Evra. I was going to put him in originally (I read JD's post in another thread and thought about evra on the left). Not sure why I forgot lol.

anyway I've edited it to how I meant to put it originally :)

I think Brown and Rio looked a bit off the pace vs Peterborough so I think they need this game. Vidic can play the full 90 vs Pompey. The whole squad can still celebrate the double without playing though.
