Get it done quickly, and take off RVP and Carrick.

Top of the Turkish league. But I don't know how strong that makes them these days.

Scholes and Giggs unlikely to play again so soon, and I'd expect Evra to go back in at left-back since we all want Buttner to keep his place :p I expect Sir Alex will play Welbeck though, but I hope we see Kagawa and RVP start together again. I expect Evans will start, so it's just a case of choosing which one of the recently-injured central-defender gets a rest.

Just please Sir Alex don't feck around with the line-up too much :nervous:

I want us to take this very seriously but keep the Liverpool game in mind.

Which basically means I don't want Ferdinand or Scholes involved.

Couldn't be bothered with making the Galatasaray kit background transparent eh? 7/10.

Do the Scouse have an Europa League game during the week? Are they even in the competition?

The squad picks itself. Valencia, Kagawa and Van Persie will surely get back in. I expect Cleverley and Evra to be fresh as well.

Lindegaard - Rafel, Vidic, Rio, Evra - Nani, Carrick, Cleverley, Valencia - Kagawa, Van Persie

Cheers Damo. Hopefully it's a gruelling trip for them. Sunday is the priority this week.
Yeah it is. Unfortunately they only need to travel to Switzerland so the journey for them should be fairly easy.

If Young is fit for Galatasary, then I'd go with this. A comfortable 3-1 win I think.

Rotate a few ahead of Scouseland I think. RVP, Scholes have to get a rest...

I just got a PM from a Galatasaray supporter on a multi club forum that I read.

As follows:
Hi Redcafe, I'm a Galatasaray fan who has some insight into Gala for you.

After finishing 8th in the 2010/2011 season coach Fatih Terim took over and had us finish 9 points ahead of Fenerbahce last season, there was a one off play off system between the top 4 but we still won the league after having our points halved and playing 6 more games. This season we've started well beating Fenerbahce in the Super Cup and we sit top of the ladder with 3 wins and 1 draw (the draw being a Besiktas away game).

Expected squad for the United game (4-4-2)

Fernando Muslera
Emmanuel Eboue - Semih Kaya - Cris - Hakan Balta
Emre Colak - Selcuk Inan - Felipe Melo - Nordin Amrabat
Umut Bulut - Burak Yilmaz

Subs:
Ufuk Ceylan - Dany Nounkeu - Yekta Kurtulus - Aydin Yilmaz - Hamit Altintop - Engin Baytar - Johan Elmander

Injured:
Tomas Ujfalusi (Long term injury)

Out of favor:
Milan Baros - Albert Riera

Players to look out for:
Selcuk Inan - Gala's most important player who plays as a deep playmaker.
Nordin Amrabat - Speedy left winger.
Umut Bulut - In form striker who has 7 goals in 5 games this season.
He'll mostly be watching this so there you go mate. /thumbs

Anyone have any idea how far Fletcher is away from a first team appearance? I'd be very keen to rest Carrick, so maybe Anderson ----- Cleverley could work. Also, I'd save Nani for Pool. Young needs game time, if he's fit.

Warsaw...that's too far away from Edinburgh...
Would like to see something like these for the up-coming games:

Fenerbache:

DDG, Rafael, Vida, Evans, Baxter, Nani, Cleverley, Nanderson, Young (if he's fit), Welbeck, Hernandez

Liverpool

Either goalie, Rafael, Vida, Rio, Evra, Scholes, Carrick, Val, Nani, Kagawa, RVP

I get the feeling Rooney will be on the bench for this one. It'll pretty much be a month since his injury, so maybe a 10 minute appearance for him.
