    Apparently the last four matches between the clubs have ended in a 2-0 scoreline.

    I dreamt last night that we won 6-5 after surrendering a 3-0 lead to go down 4-3. Tom Thorpe, Kenji Gorre and my favorite NFL player scored from then to make it 6-4 and they made it 6-5 on the last kick of the game. You heard it here first.

    If we're playing 4-5-1 then it's possible, Scholes + Giggs in the same midfield......i don't think that's a good idea.

    If we're playing 4-4-2 then he'll be on the bench i reckon, because Carrick + Scholes/Giggs/Jones should start.

    Is Anderson fit?

    I think we should play 3 in midfield - carrick/scholes/giggs for me

    Is Pogba in the squad for this? That journalist said he, Rooney and Ferdinand will all return for this but not sure whether that's bullshit or not.

    No reason for Rio not to return, he's not injured. Yet.

    Nope, and prateik's the only one on the site to call him Andow I think.

    And as for Ando there's no way I can see him starting against Norwich. If he plays it'll most likely be a bench appearance.

    If Rooney doesn't make it, and since Young's form isn't great, I think Giggs will end up playing 'in the hole' where Rooney normally plays. I would have suggested giving Cleverley a shot there, and of course Park can play there quite well too.

    Anderson is supposed to be back, I'd expect a sub appearance.

    I would expect Rio to be back. Expect a Giggs start tomorrow, I can see a 3-1 United win tomorrow.

    The back-four with Smalling + Ferdinand + Evans + Evra should be a easy decision after Norwich have scored 20 goals from crosses this season.

    If Rooney doesn't make it we could see 3 in the middle.

    Carrick - Jones
    ---- Giggs

    ------- Carrick -- Giggs ------
    Nani------------------- Young
    -------------- -- Rooney ----
    ------- Welbeck -------------


    Hernandez could be a good option in starting XI too, but it's probably better to have him as a sub. They really gave us hard time at Old Trafford, but I'm expecting better game from us tomorrow, and a win, 2-0 for us.

    I have to admit when I heard Rooney was out against Ajax in the 2nd leg with a virus I thought SAF was probably just using that as an excuse for resting him after saying he'd field his strongest team.

    Is either this game or the Spurs-Arsenal on TV in the States?

    Edit: Just checked and the Spurs-Arsenal game is on FSC.

    That 2-0 defeat at carrow road in 2005 was the worst united performance I can remember, just ahead of our 2-0 loss there in 1990. Gulp.
