Manchester United Message Board
The long-awaited champions league is back again.Surely,we will look to forget the defeat to barcelona with a good victory tomorrow night!
After a great performance at White Hart Lane,the team is in high spirits.
I think the Boss will make a lot of changes to the line up as he looks to freshen up the players after the Tottenham match and before the derby.
I expect Brown to start instead of O'shea , as he played 90 on Saturday.
Carrick will definitely start and I expect Fletcher to be rested for Sunday.The manager might give Gibson a run but I am not sure , so Anderson partners Michael.
Valencia and Nani on the flanks, they're both fresh.
Owen will start alongside Rooney.
Brown Ferdinand Vidic Evra
Valencia Carrick Anderson Nani
Glory Glory Man United!
Than why did he buy valencia then...if park starts ahead of him.
o.k ch/l experience....but if valencia is a replacement for ronny...then i hope it's only temp...and he's used more of a squad player...we need david silva..first in the jan window.....!

man utd are a rotation team, park is a player better suited to the champions league
valencia was not bought as a replacement for ronaldo, thats would be ludicrous as there are only 2 or 3 genuine players who could replace his role as attacking midfielder/striker
valencia/park will rotate the right hand side of midfield with fletcher also able to occupy that position
man utd does not need another pre-madonna egotistical star like ronaldo detracting morale from the team (let alone tevez)
a squad-based team like utd does not need a player like silva who demands to play every single game
we don't need a rash january puchase that would stink of desperation... i mean we just beat arsenal and tottenham fairly comprehensively... why the urge to sign more players?
I don't think your line up will be far off. The only difference I think is that Berbatov will start alongside Rooney again. He only ended up getting 60 minutes against Spurs, and I think Fergie will keep him in there to continue to build on the partnership he's starting to form with Wayne.

Anderson needs to start again, for the same reason Steve cited for Berbatov, he needs to build on what was a superb performance.
We dropped him after his superb display over Boca and look what happened? Same thing with Nani all last year.
Fergie can't afford to make the same mistake again.
