The last 2 fixtures at cottage came at wrong time for us so now I'm sure we can easily see off Fulham if we play the way we have been in the last 2 games.Remember the 4-0 win at Fulham in FA cup in 2009? that was with out strong squad.
He's probably been given extra time off to redo a bit of pre-season. Hopefully we'll see Bebe, but it's unlikely as the reserves are out in Ireland. Would expect him to train with the first team this week and then get game time in the reserves season.
Think our best pairing up top at the moment is berba-chich. But rooney is our best striker when in 80% or better form thats
why fergie will keep playing rooney untill he is back in form and scoring at will.
Will hopefully be 4-4-2 at the cottage. If we reverse the score from last year I'll be happy!
Read an interview last week from Fergie where he says he has options on the wings in Nani, Valencia,Giggs, Cleverley and Obertan...didn't mention Park, i have a feeling he's gonna try Park down the middle, maybe use him like he did against Pirlo?
Yea, can't be too sure...maybe Sir Alex might sub him off after 60 mins if he's not 100%?
I'm wondering if Rooney will start today or not, if he's not 100%, him not scoring just makes him even more frustrated!!
I personally think it's a good thing that Rooney is out. He's still not 100% fit I dont think and Berbatov and Chich seem to be gelling together well. We'll play a 442 today and I think we'll put 4 past them.
I think today will be interesting. We have struggled against Fulham recently and now Hughes may be looking for a bit of revenge for the derby last season. I stll think we will win today. My team would be:
I was struggling for centre mid. Initially I was thinking carrick but I don't really know if he is match fit enough to come in against fulham. Although thinking about it now I think fergie will start him or possibly park today go give them some time.
i think Owen might play 45 mins, he also needs some match time...maybe he'll be a sub, we'll know today if Hernanadez or Macheda are Sir Alex's preferred choice for a tough away game when they have a chance to start..
