    Oh my ……. Fletcher is back !!!!

  2. ashtheking says:

    We badly need new players. Giggs at Midfield always gives a pain in my whole Body. I am happy that Flecth is back but i seriously hope that this doesnt become a reason for us not buying. Nice to see JAanujaz but apart from that a very dull line up. Cant blame Moyes if Half of the players are injured. Just hope we get 3 points

  3. wayne barker says:

    Fellaini and Kagawa both injured

  4. UnitedFaithful says:

    Get Innn Fletch….Hope he is given a run out

  5. Jesmontanaro says:

    Looking st the next fixtures we have, now it is time gain some ground against the top teams since there will be many direct encounters between them.

  6. Andromeda says:

    Obviously we are down to a bare bone in term of injury, hope the players know realizing how important this game will be , we need to be resilient before thinking about winning.we need to stay together and perform like a champions, we need to silence the critics and then try to win the fixture with pride!!GO united.

  7. UnitedFaithful says:

    Nani became a father,he was given a leave.

  8. Jesmontanaro says:

    Seeing Giggs in the team means that there isn’t so many midfielders available. This applies also for Fletcher.

  9. Ariff Musa says:

    bet buttner will come in for evra instead of fabio

  10. Andromeda says:

    I trust in Giggs, he could be the difference tonight.Danny’s pace run and Rooney’s genius can be create a confusion in their defense.The spirit is high after our champions league we Go United.

  11. UnitedFaithful says:

    Smalling and chicha also injured

  12. Jesmontanaro says:

    We have no depth in squad at all. We should have bought in august since everyone knew this even Moyes. Thanks mr woodward for the mess we are in today.

    Come on United…

  15. ys says:

    Just curious is Ando injured or we finally giving up on him ?

  16. wayne barker says:

    Looking at the bench i’m guessing Ando is injured

  17. wayne barker says:

    Hernandez is injured

  18. UnitedFaithful says:

    Welbeck and Januzaj will interchange I think,similar to Kags and Welbeck against Spurs,

  19. Andromeda says:

    Rafa-Valencia on the right flank will definitely be intimidating for Villa defense, Janujaz will be more free and given the perfect opportunity he will be a threat tonight, as I said the most important thing to happen today is the returning back of that lost spirit, then we can give ourselves a run.we will pass this difficult epoch and carry on the usual business.

  20. NefariousVirtuoso88 says:

    No central defenders in midfield.

    Its a start.

  21. UnitedFaithful says:

    Smalling getting injured is a blow,he has been our best defender,had he stayed fit think moyes would’ve started jones at midfield

  22. UnitedFaithful says:

    United United United

  23. Andromeda says:

    Bang !!!!danny

  24. Matthew Cassell says:

    Tony V with a left footed pass to Welbeck.. You see something new everyday

  25. LoneStarRed7 says:

    Word on the street is Tony V is starring in a remake of the Daniel Day Lewis. My Left Foot 2 or something like that.

  26. LoneStarRed7 says:

    This game is far from over if Villa make proper adjustments.

  27. LoneStarRed7 says:

    Lee Mason has obviously had a look at the film over the half. He is actually blowing fouls now.

  28. LoneStarRed7 says:

    The team that can defend well will be THE favorite to win the EPL this year. The race is NOT over.

  29. LoneStarRed7 says:

    Lee Mason was horrible. But that is redundant isn’t it.
