    We can't win a tight game against them, open it up, width! tempo! Ronaldo with chalk on his boots! Rooney will clobber them.

    He is saying it was just a dislocation and he will definitely play in the final.

    He didn't waste too much time bringing that out. We'll see in the next few days, but it sounded like he's rushing himself back far too quick again.

    Hopefully that leads to press spacking which'll fill the column inches.

    We may need Nani and Anderson for this game. They may even start for all we know. Beating Chelsea will demand strength and mobility in the middle with pace and skill on the wings.

    Drogba and Terry will both play. Sounds like some early mind games to me-Trying to to generate momentum and possibly deflate United with the "Drogba and Terry fit for final", headlines.

    Anderson won't start. He's fifth choice behind Scholes, Carrick, Hargreaves and Fletcher.

    Anderson and Giggs to come off the bench, with either Fletch (if we need to close the game up) or Saha if we need a winner.

    Lets make this one a classic, but lets make this one a win

    Id like to, but that team wasnt what I want, its what I think Fergie will go for. Id love to start Tevez up top with Rooney on the left. Despite losing 1-0, I thought Rney was great against Chelsea in the FA Cup Final last season where he spent most of his time out on the left, regularly cutting in.

    no idea about the drogba injury .. terry will be fine ..
    a dislocated shoulder might hurt , but you can pop it back in easily .. unless there is more to it , he'd be training in 2 days time



    full strength side .. everyone fit .. bring it on..
    rio seemed up for it after the trophy presentation yesterday .. was looking at the fans and screaming "moscow" :lol:

    4-5-1 me reckons .. tevez and rooney to start .. can change to 4-4-2 when we are having a good spell , can go 5 in the middle when we arent getting too much of the ball

    In my opinion it will be:

    Van Der Sar.
    Brown Ferdinand Vidic Evra
    Ronaldo Scholes Carrick Park
    Tevez Rooney.

    Maybe Nani if Sir Alex is in a forgiving mood.

    We have a 100% record in champions league finals therefore statistically we're 100% sure to win, we can send the kids out, we don't even need the first team.

    Isn't it great the next match on the Matchday thread is a European Cup Final:drool:

    My prediction is that Chelsea are in for a shock. There all at the bridge,cocks out because they beat the reserves 2-1 a couple of weeks back. They won't do it in Moscow. Come on Utd!:devil:

    ---Ronaldo---------------Tevez----------------Rooney------





    Subs: Kuzczak, Silvestre, Giggs, Anderson, Nani, Saha, Hargreaves
    Prediction: 3-0 win. Ronaldo hattrick
    Rationale for selection: Fletcher the "big game" player to come in & do another harrying job in midfield. I predict that he will be Fergie's ace for this match. Remember 1999 when Fergie put Beckham on the left and Giggsy on the right. I foresee that Flecthinho's inclusion woul be his 2008 secret tactic.

    Hopefully, this is the team that plays:

    VDS

    Brown
    Rio
    Vida
    Evra

    Carrick
    Hargreaves
    Scholes

    Ronaldo
    Tevez
    Rooney

    Keep Saha, Anderson and Nani on the bench in case we needed to attack even more or get a goal.

    Going to be a great match, and I'm confident we'll get that trophy !

    For the Busby Babes !

    Perhaps Rooney as lone striker and Giggs to start at left. I have a feeling he will play because he is Giggs, but I wouldn't mind that. His experience could prove vital.

    long time to wait for this one. I thought it was bad waiting for the Wigan game....

    We have the advantage of one tropphy already so the pressure is definetly on them.
    Hopefully we'll attack them as I don't want to see a repeat of last years FA Cup final where we showed them too much respect.

    When we go after teams we tend to do well.

    Glad to have Rooney and Vidic back too.

    Um, that's what we do on matchday threads. If you bother to look at these types of thread, all we do is discuss possible formations, tactics and what eleven is best suited to play :rolleyes:
    Anyway, my preferred line-up would be:

    VDS, Brown, Rio, Vidic, Evra, Hargreaves, Carrick, Scholes, Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez.
    Subs: PIG, Silvestre, Fletcher, Anderson, Giggs, Nani & Saha.
