there was some talk on the paddy show last night about smalling starting at right back, cant see it though.
the good thing is if what we are led to believe is true that we have a plan in place should things go awry, in 09, we crumbled after they scored, and ran out of ideas very early, so we dont want to surrender meekly again,
i just hope that the players have not read too much into their "invincible" tag that the press have been on about all week and focus on our capabilities, otherwise they will be nervous wrecks like most of us come tomorrow lol
im sure most have heard it by now but if the 4-4-2 is not working, or we go a goal behind, apparently we will turn to plan b
namely smalling coming on for possibly park, playing 3 at the back, pushing evra and the rb into wing halves and pushing valencia/nani into a 3 pronged attack creating a 3-4-3 formation.
if, like at arsenal, barca tire, then it might just work out.

no one is getting het up, or at least im not, it was the irony of it and the reporter having a dig with tongue in cheek
"No doubt 69-year-old Ferguson will play close attention to the sage wisdom of the 19-year-old as he tries to secure the 48th trophy of his managerial career.
that is what he wrote which is why i said put down of the day, the reporter was taking the p1ss.
wilshere had a good game against a lot of sides but does not make him the best possible analyst when we have all the experience we need.
sir alex will use his own tactics and probably wont read the papers, so it will hardly matter whos says what,
The Telegraph aren't the only people talking tactics today, with Jack Wilshere in almost every single newspaper in the country explaining how Manchester United can beat Barcelona.
No doubt 69-year-old Ferguson will play close attention to the sage wisdom of the 19-year-old as he tries to secure the 48th trophy of his managerial career.
yesterday we had wenger telling us...........forgive me but how come we are playing barcelona tomorrow, surely it should be arsenal being as they know how to beat them.

jack, welcome to the legend that is slayer (tall-order)
this gooner fan spends his life on our board, has years of quotes stored on his computer of everything anti-united, bitches about refs, fergie time, throw ins, etc etc and tells me to ditch the conspiracy theory,
i cut and pasted this from another board mainly because i knew it would cause a rise from abus, namely slayer, fabiscrass, wobert, dqueer and my obssessive shadow geordie girl, and i have laughed my socks off to see 2 of them, and 1 says for me to cut the theology.......................hahahahaha, i must remember this the next time we get a controversial decision and have 4 days of him crying and copying and pasting from yesteryear......................
she bit, just like i always make him do and many others,
ps, dqueer is the boring pr1ck who waffles on and on whilst contributing absolutely sod all.
should imagine he is divorced, who could blame her.
Player: Christian Negouai (Manchester City)
Offence: Missing drugs test
Punishment: No ban, £2,000 fine
Player: Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United)
Offence: Missing drugs test
Punishment: 8 month ban, £50,000 fine
Player: Kolo Toure (Manchester City)
Offence: Taking banned substance (in diet pills)
Punishment: 6 month ban
Player: Paddy Kenny (Sheffield United)
Offence: Taking banned substance (in cough medicine)
Punishment: 9 month ban
How the FA can justify these punishments is beyond me. Surely has nothing to do with Manchester City supporting chairman, David Bernstein…
- sat-on-our-perch sat-on-our-perch May 27, 2011 04:11 Flag
and the 6 month ban comes during the closed season.
wonder who the chairman of the fa is.
as for the last bit, its as sure as daybreak matey ;0)

Sadly for him, as a keeper he is more likely to be remembered for a mistake than the good stuff
your becoming a right royal pr1ck rob.
stop being an envious cnut just because you were beaten by us 4 times this season.
we are not cfc, who sack a double winning manager in a corridor
united always remember what a player has done for the club and even if ed had a mare on sat night, he will still be a great keeper in our eyes for the service he gave us, not for 1 game or half a season like your shower of a club.
now get a fking bar of soap and wash out all that crap thats coming out of your arse you pathetic newly joined abu.you used to be ok but now your a pr1ck.

personally, i have not seen or heard enough on de gea to be comfortable enough with him, but sir alex did watch him, unlike bebe, so i trust his judgement.
i would have preferred stekelenburg, who vds recommended, and who also had a very good world cup
- sat-on-our-perch sat-on-our-perch May 27, 2011 00:17 Flag
its neither being arrogant to be honest dave.
sir alex said we have identified who it is we want and we hope to get the deal done and bring him in.
de gea said no deal has been done.
totally true from both parties.
its the usual press that has caused the confusion, they took fergie,s words and turned it into "united sign de gea"
a bit like way back when i picked up the sun and it said "united sign shearer"
only for newcastle to see it and give him his dream.
many have earmarked rooney, some hernandez, some giggs, and, rightly so, park, who i believe has to start, but for me, i see the most important player for us is
ed van der sar, as good as they are, they still have to beat him, and he has been in brilliant form, plus if it went to penalties, i would back him to end up the man who won it, and what a way to go that would be
- sat-on-our-perch sat-on-our-perch May 26, 2011 23:28 Flag
sir alex knows that to start with scholes is a gamble,especially against the fleet footed xavi, iniesta and messi, and will not take that chance, he will stick with the tried and trusted, scholes will be on the bench, which could prove important in the latter stages.
- sat-on-our-perch sat-on-our-perch May 26, 2011 23:25 Flag
nani will be on the bench.
sir alex will go with valencia as he is more disciplined in tracking back and its no secret that sir alex has put valencia back there in a few games, and has done the job well.
on other notes, the bench could well decide this final, and i think ours is stronger, but also there are 2 differences between 09 and this time, no ronaldo, no tevez, in there places valencia and hernandez.
we all know cr7 wanted to win it on his own and was a bit "me" that night, whereas valencia will be very much anything but for himself, a very selfless player
tevez likes to come deep, turn and go at defenders but also run from deep like rooney does, again, hernandez is different, direct, quick, always looking to get behind, so we could actually have a better balance despite the other 2 being better players,
finally, everyone picking carrick now, not long ago he was out the door in many peoples eyes, signed a new contract, and is near the carrick we know, he and ryan compliment each other,
it will be a long night, but 1 we can win, however unlikely the rest outside united think we cant, united players and sir alex believe we can, so keep writing us off guys.
arsenal fans will vouch for this too, as will real madrid.
magnificent football, lets get that straight, but apart from a lot of play acting from the lesser players like busquets, pedro and mascherano, what barca do very well against quick counter attacks is foul high up the pitch.
a lot of people have said our speed on the counter could win us the game, but when barca lose the ball, they commit petty fouls to stop the play.
hopefully, this will be picked up on by the officials, otherwise our best chance imo will be very hard to achieve.

robert. firstly chelsea are a joke, in the way they sacked ancelotti.
second, learn to understand the difference between uniteds statements and that of the english tabloids.
so you can understand the full statement from united is
Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed United are close to signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea.
Speaking after Gary Neville's testimonial match on Tuesday night, the manager said: "We've been working on it [De Gea transfer] for quite a while. We identified him quite a while back as one we should go for.
"He's a young goalkeeper, very quick, good composure, presence and an outstanding replacement for van der Sar.
"We were looking for the same type of qualities as Edwin, because the one great quality Edwin always had was his composure and organisational ability.
"With David De Gea, he is very similar that way."
note the word "close"
which is a long way from "have"
deary me some people.

the popular perception is exactly that, not just this board, but the whole world say it.
we however could turn him into someone with substance and a winning ethic.
but he aint good enough in my opinion anyway so not even worth talking about.
- sat-on-our-perch sat-on-our-perch May 25, 2011 23:03 Flag
wrong again you pleb.
its actually in sir alex biography because he talks about how he sorted things with mum then dad tried to muscle in, and there was even dialogue from ms giggs.
see you plum, no idea at all you empty headed obssessed with all things united.
bigger club, bigger torment ha fking ha
