Will you be praying for the Newcastle game?

We're in bad form and need a miracle of the divine nature.

We need the forces that be to keep our defence tight and our attackers potent.

There are other things that I want a miracle of divine nature than a football game where higher management fail our manager.

Fascinating fixture this. New signings in. Martial out. There are so many combinations we could put out tonight

It's becoming quite obvious, horsechoker, that you have SteveJ locked in your basement. I'll pray for his safe release.

Woodward's preparing a bid for his release however he's well below the asking price for the ransom.

Not really, Cavani is quarantined. Diallo is not with us yet. Pellistri might make the bench. Telles might start.
There's loads of ?'s on this one. With Tony out he can't play his usual system unless he uses Ighalo, which is doubtful, so it opens up all kinds of possibilities.

Yeah but my point is that it’s a slim chance that you even get to see one of them make their debut so we will be using mostly the same pool of players as before

Oh yeah. VDB still feels like a brand new player to me though so I hope to see him start tonight. Henderson could play. Telles too

Most of all I hope that he shows some flexibility in his system rather than simply Ighalo in for Martial

We're the Red Devils, praying is the last thing we should be doing.

Human sacrifice is where it's at ;)

We will win tonight. Think it will be comfortable too. Pretty weird to feel that currently but here we go.

So far this season, per game (to allow for some playing 3 and the rest 4) we have had:

The second least shots in the box (WBA worse)
Conceded the second most shots in the box (WBA worse again!)

On paper, Newcastle should win this.
