    Digne and Coutinho set for debuts. I’ve never been so sure of losing a game (not against city or Liverpool) as I am of this. Maybe since Barcelona in 2011.

    At this rate Slippy is probably blackmailing Raiola with nudes to sign Haaland before the next league game. City should have never given them that Grealish money.

    Would be my guess. I'm strangely optimistic about this.

    Wonder if Henderson will be on the bench having walked off Monday because he was not selected to play.
    Should stay home then. Don’t tolerate this.

    There are lot of concerns about this game and people seem to be very confident in Villa success - I think this is our turnaround game. We will show better gameplay and attitude and win this one.

    Maybe that’s the real reason why Raiola was taken ill the other day, wanked himself into the A&E.

    This one should be interesting. We were outplayed for long stretches in the last match, they missed a couple of golden chances, and we had our own poor decision-making nearly bite us.

    We could have won 3-0 or lost 1-3 with just a tiny swing in luck.

    I'd say the coaching decision are going to be key, whether we are told to try the gegenpress again or to sit back, if we try to hit them on the counter or try to control the game. With the personnel we have available I'd think the press is going to kill us. RR will need to stick an extra body in midfield, as bruno kept going too far ahead. I hope the instructions are to keep it safe, and to hope for a lucky break. If we play open and high up the pitch we will get exposed and we will pay for it.

    I think there's more chance of a narrow loss than a win, but Individual Brilliance FC with our star player Own Goal might show up and give us a 2-1 win.

    This is the game where it all clicks, I can just feel it! 4-3-3, more control, more possession. I fancy us to win 3-0 convincingly and go on somewhat of a run.

    Probably going to limp to a defeat though

    Nah, scrap the white text! This is the turning point!

    Football is a simple game: 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and, in the end, Phil Jones always wins.

    I have no idea why but i'm genuinely optimistic for this game, McGinn being out pleases me more than Coutinho scares me. Think Rangnick will finally get some of the control in the performance that he often speaks about if we go with 3 or 4 in midfield.

    With that in mind, comfortable 2-0 win for Villa.

    If we have a repeat of how we played the last time they will win. They are at home with the crowd with them and I bet SG is licking his lips. 2-0 Villa.

    If we start with Matic in place of McT in the midfield it’s going to be a long night.

    There needs to be a significant change in the way we shape up for this game as we were played off the park for large patches of the game, as for nearly all of the Wolves game.

    With the exception of the Palace game we haven’t actually controlled or looked in dominant charge of any game under RR.

    The fact that McGinn is out is a big plus for us.

    It is time! I do think United have to click eventually and I think the Captain Ronny public bollocking in the media dressing down of these over-pampered and overpaid spoilt flops will have worked a treat to fire up the lads for this one!

    2-0 United no messing about now! Let's get this show on the road! We are United and we do what we want! :keano:

    the United away fans will be well up for this. Sticking it to Gerrard! Fecking Scouse scummer already eyeing up Klopps job the arrogance of the man knows no bounds.. fecking still the classless feck that punched a DJ for not playing a Phil Collins song a few years ago ! Let's bring Gerrard and his media minions back down to earth!

    Even a draw will feel like a result. That's how shite we are.

    You can't even get good prices on double chance bets against United these days. Throwing €50 on Villa.

    Maguire firmly on the bench please. Captain Fraudtastic not needed. Telles for Shaw, Donny for McT. Rashford remains on the bench, Greenwood and Ronaldo up top. Sancho and Bruno behind them.

    No more "next game" bullshit. Play hard and win THIS GAME. Things are getting really dicey for 4th place. Cannot afford to "go again next game..."

    Yeah, as City stroll to another PL Title, at this rate, in 20 years time, not only will Liverpool eclipse our current 20 League Titles but so will Man City. :mad: :(

    Been doing ok in the lineup prediction league but here is where it all goes pear shaped, I am buying into Ralf praising Donny on Monday and picking him to start, fecking certifiable I am.

    DDG

    AWB Varane Maguire Telles

    Matic

    Fred DVB

    Bruno

    Cavani Ronaldo

    Telles of course has to start due to the suspension and I am sure Matic is nailed on to take Scott's place for the same reason. AWB as I expect Ralf will just rotate the RB options until one of them does something deserving of keeping their place so that will be never. Maguire looks like he will be fit and I anticipate our Captain must start as always and Victor will be the one to drop out. The attacking positions I honestly have no fecking clue, the formation probably calls for speedier wide attackers but right now they are all playing like crap with the exception of Elanga who has no chance of starting. Could also see this as a straight 4-3-3 with Bruno in attack.
