    About Nani and other's being available or not,I don't take anything SAF says in the lead up to a big game seriously

    lol, true, could be just games he's playing with City to catch them unawares maybe?
    i hope so at least.

    I'm hoping the Scousers can be depended on to give Chelsea a challenge today, rather than roll over like they at the end of last season!!

    Going to be a tough game.
    Considering Chelsea have Fulham at the bridge, you would expect them to win that. United can not afford to slip up, don't want to fall 5 points behind again.

    Win is the only option!

    that's huge blow to us!! i think we might see Park and Giggsy on the wings, but all depends on the no. of fit players we have who can play

    I really want to play 4-5-1 in this one. But if Berbatov is not fit, I cant see Hernandez playing well by himself so hoping Berba makes it

    Wouldn't say Chelsea are certs to beat Fulham. Derby game, Fulham are the draw specialists this year, more draws than us I think, and Chelsea's squad is pretty thin at the moment. Obviously we have to win regardless because we're playing Shitty. But the Chelsea game isn't as straightforward.

    I really hope Nani can get fit for this one, if he's not I can't see us winning tbh. Given Chelsea's result yesterday I'd happily take a draw on Wednesday night - not got a good feeling for this game

    hopefully, if all fit, the team will be something like:

    VDS
    Rafael
    Ferdinand
    Vidic
    Evra

    Nani
    Scholes
    Fletcher
    Park

    Hernandez
    Berbatov

    but i have a feeling fergie might go with 5 in midfield and play carrick, leaving hernandez on the bench

    4-5-1 for me, VDS, Rafael, Rio, Vida, Evra, Giggs, Carrick, Scholes, Fletch, Park, Berbatov... and bring Hernandez on when their defence tires... if we need to.

    Team obviously depending on fitness and illnesses.

    is nani definitely out of this or is there a chance he might make it?

    him running at their left back whoever it might be is sure to bring us some chances

    You never know with SAF.
    The boss will say one thing and do another.
    Nani to start!

    right boys, i ve already given you the score, but just in case any of you missed it 3-0 blues...city have no worries and are up for this one, our one problem will of course be,chris foy, the referee, god only knows how many dodgy decisions he s going to give you, still i cant see that stopping us, you see all them stories that you read every day in the papers has really brought our changing room together, please please let him play gary neville it could even go to 4 or 5 if he does...oh man city the only football team to come from manchester...try and enjoy the rest of the week after your mauling boys

    Mate,I highly doubt my favourite player Gary Neville will play.But even if he does don't under-estimate him.Last season he ripped Bellamy apart and can easily do that to Milner.Your scorelines are just play station scores.talk some sense ;)`

    Nani also a doubt, I think everyone is a doubt to be honest. Either got injuries or illness.

    Giggs has never missed a Manchester Derby.Since his United debut,he has played in 33 consecutive derbies.The closest he come to missing one was in 2008-09 season when he played the last 5 mins of the game.

    Leave the city fan to post on here - it makes the banter all the better.

    Looking forward to the game!
