    Team for Charity Shield

    Do you think United will play a full-strnegth team in the Charity Shield match? It was suggested to me yesterday that United might prefer to play an under-strength team than a full-strength team which then lost. (I'm not suggesting it would lose, just reporting on a theory.)

    On the other hand, with Chelsea having goalkeeping problems (Cech out for a month, Turnbull having a nightmare against Ajax, Hilario collecting his bus-pass) and other injury issues (Alex, Benayoun - who?) it might be an opportunity for United to get one over on Chelsea and start the season positively.

    The winners of the last two Charity Shields between these two clubs went on to win the league and a minor cup later in the season.
