Not a clue who's playing for them, all that matters is that the world cup lads and whoever didn't go on tour (Valencia) get gametime.

Also, a game at a decent time of day for us. Can get some sort of sleep patern going now. haha.

Owen it's unlikely. He still working with the phisios and i think he's not fit yet.
Valencia have a chance. He's making a such good recovery from his ankle injury.

Will be nice to see Rooney and co back in action again

Owen's already been confirmed as out for the start of the season.

Carrick has to play, hasn't played since the World Cup warm up games. He did play in them, didn't he? I reckon Carrick could have helped England regardless of form for us.

i don't think Obertan will play, will be surprised if he makes the bench even...i don't think Rooney will start though, i see Hernandez and Macheda starting, So will Carrrick and Valencia...Park might come off the bench.

13:16 The funniest moment upon arrival came when Chicharito stopped signing autographs and headed inside the hotel. A young fan shouted: "Thanks Javier... and thanks for scoring that goal against France, too!" People in these parts still haven't forgotten

friendly so i'm sure unlimited subs, i think Fergie has given Evra extra time off...great chance for Fabio to make a mark imo...pretty sure he'll start against Chelski...SAF considers the community shield as a friendly too and it would be a perfect chance to see how Fabio does against a string team

Smalling can play at RB apparently, read somewhere the other day. Got a feeling it's 3-5-2 with O'Shea in Mid again. Fergie obviously trying something there.

Yeah well it's not going to be used all the time anyway if at all. He might try it again in the League Cup.
