Where To Put Your Money For United vs Fulham

Manchester United have a terrific record against Fulham and are a top priced 1.33 with Paddy Power to beat them at Old Trafford this weekend.

Sir Alex’s men got the new season off to a poor start when going down 1-0 to Everton at Goodison where the only real positive to be taken out of the game was an excellent performance by Shinji Kawaga.

Wayne Rooney put in what can only be described as a lacklustre display, while Robin van Persie surprisingly stated on the bench and only got a 20 minute run out.

Both will surely spearhead the attack from the off this time, and if history is anything to go by then they can fire United to victory.

United have won four and lost none of their last five Premier League games against Fulham, keeping clean sheets in all four victories.

The Cottagers have also lost on their last eight trips to Old Trafford in the league and failed to score in the last five in a row.

Those are compelling statistics which suggest that despite Fulham impressively winning their opening game 4-0, United should prove fare too strong and register a comfortable success.

Rooney has has scored four goals in his last three Premier League games against Fulham, and that makes him of serious interest at 1.91 with Betfred and Boylesports to score during the 90 minutes.

He can also be backed at 4.5 with Betfred to grab the opening goal of the game, a market in which he is slight second favourite behind Robin van Persie who is a best of 4.33 with bet365 and Boylesports.

Another bet that really makes appeal is for United to win this without reply.

The Red Devils have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine PL games at home and Fulham have only scored nine in their last 14 on the road.

That makes the 2.1 on offer with Paddy Power for them to win to nil look huge, especially when other firms go odds-on at 1.91.

United to win 3-0 or 4-0 is my idea of the outcome, and those scorelines can be backed at 9.5 and 14 with Paddy Power.

    The legendary sprint racer
    Usain Bolt is to be a special guest of honour at Manchester United v Fulham tomorrow.

    Special, I hope he trains Nani
    Who knows, maybe he would incentive him to be opponents with pace instead of always trying to beat hem with skills but still get closed down before he can whack a cross.

    Get in there bolt, and watch us put in six!!! :)

  7. Unitedforeva says:

    Much will depend on the first 20mins as Fulham will be full of confidence after last Sat. I’m taking H-H and a 3-0 scoreline, with Kagawa, RVP & Rooney whacking them in.

  13. Utd4life says:

    Chelsea have secured the signing of Victor Moses from Wigan. Poor Martinez, clubs have been steadily taking the best players from his club but credit to him for somehow keeping Wigan in top flight football inspite of all that.

  14. Busby babes says:

    really cant see the thought process behind moses move to chelsea.

    @Quiza : I agree with you. Forza MAN U!

    Lads- just ignore glory. Ge continues because you react. Can you expect this person to stop when you give him the reaction he desires!.

  19. Utd4life says:

    Busby babes. Is there any thought process behind Chelsea’ signings? They just buy every player under the sun. It is necessary for them because unlike us, they don’t give a chance to their academy players. Wonder why clubs like Chelsea and City even have youth academies.

    U fucking nomad rent boy fuking wanker why do you go back to fulham you cunt, your a fucking piece of spemicide that your mother should have swallowed, in fact i wouldnt cum in a bucket and kick it at your fucking mother, chav cunt, i cant wait till the russian peado gets fucking locked up and your shit club dies!

  21. Proverb says:

    Great link
    Great article there ice
    Go kags!!! ;)

  22. Rai says:

    Sigh. STR. For fucks sake ban the cunt. Take a look at the recent comments on your blog it’s a fuckin circus.

    Looking forward to tomorrow’s game, we need a kick start to the season hopefully tomorrows game can provide that. Can see us gettin a couple of goals hopefully the lads will go out and prove a few doubters wrong. Can’t see with us starting Rooney, RVP and Danny up front can see one of them on the bench

  23. Utd4life says:

    Rai. Hi mate. I would love to see RVP start and lead the line on his own with Kagawa behind him in the hole. But I have a feeling that SAF will start with RVP and Rooney which means Danny will drop to the bench. I would also like to see the Ando-Clev combo re ignited. And one midfield pairing I would never want to see is Cleverley and Scholes. And hopefully, SAF is just playing mind games with the media regarding the defenders and he can put in one of the first team defenders in the team tomorrow and revert Carrick to his normal position.

  24. Costas says:

    Jesus Christ ban the troll already.

  25. Proverb says:

    We want nothing less than a win
    Come on you reds!!!

  26. Passe says:

    Mmmmmmind Games…
    Yep, play Kagawa in the hole with RVP up front. Rooney can play when he decides it is time to get fit.

  27. Rai says:

    Costas – Tell me about it!!

    Utd4life – Would like Ando to prove everyone wrong but my patience is wearing thin with him. If available for midfield, Carrick is the first choice along with either Cleverley, Giggs, Scholes or Ando. Can see Kagawa playing further forward or in a 3 man midfield. I can see the purpose of playing Valencia at right back as it accommodates Nani, but Valencia is far more dangerous and effective as an out and out winger. Imagine the through balls Kagawa would feed though to Valencia to bypass defenders….that pace is wasted as a right back!

  28. Utd4life says:

    Rai. I hope Rafael plays at RB tomorrow. If we are going to start Valencia everytime we face some opposition which consists of tall players then we might as well inject growth hormones in the lad. Like you said, the Valencia-Rafael down the right wing is scary but Valencia is more effective as RM and I hope to God this isn’t SAF’s way of trying to accommodate Nani and Valencia in the same team. Play Rafael, the kid is talented and is feisty. His height should not be an issue, after he did out jump Donkey Carroll.

  29. Proverb says:

    Yeah the line up is likely to be like this

    Rafael vida evra buttner

    Valencia ando clevs rooney/young

    Van persie

  30. Rai says:

    Utd4life – Problem is with Nani is that his best performances have come when he’s played right wing rather than cutting in from the left wing. But it’s up to him to challenge for his favoured position. If Valencia is doing the business as a right winger no point changing it for the sake of it. Plus if Rafael is at right back, Valencia is a safer bet to track back and cover when the little man bombs forward.
    On the opposite flank, Young and Nani should fight it out for the time being. Would like to see the new lad at left back and give Paddy some time out he needs to seriously get refreshed

  31. Costas says:


    Looks like we had the same idea. :D

  32. Utd4life says:

    Rai. Like you said, it is upto Nani to cement his place in the team. The lad is on the verge of becoming a world class player but his inconsistency stops him from taking his game to another level. At RW, I would always choose Valencia because he is more effective and simply because he is right footed. At Lw, it’s a toss up between Nani and Young. You know what you are going to get with Young-nothing fancy, he plays safe and puts in a couple of good crosses into the box. On the other hand, with Nani you have got no idea what you are going to get. On his day he is unplayable other wise he plays like how he did against Everton. At RB, my first and only choice would be Rafael. The lad has been around for 3-4 years. if you keep him on the bench just because the opposition players are tall or because he is inexperienced then it’s waste of his talent. Play the guy and let him learn from his mistakes. As for Evra, he seriously needs a time out. The guy has just missed 3 PL games in the last 3 seasons. That is astonishing and frankly shocking. He needs to be rested for a while so that he recharge his batteries. In the mean time, I hope this Buttner lad comes good.

  33. Adam says:

    agree tomorrows front lineup should try RVP up front with Kagawa in supporting cast. I think they’ll link up the best. Love Kagawa, great signing. I don’ think it’s as much him adjusting to our play as it’s us taking full advantage of his. However it is that he builds a playing understanding with the quickest up front will be interesting, exiting, and entertaining as hell, and I really think the golas will flow galore at that point.

  34. Adam says:


  35. Zibbie says:

    Rai and Costas, so spot on. I miss the boyz who have left… sad face.

    Nice right up STR.

    Rafa — Carrick–Vida–Evra

    ——Anderson– Clevs

    Tony V–Kagawa–Rooney


  36. Red Robin says:

    Leave the troll, guys. He’s just a sick jelous ABU bastard begging for atttention.

    Why is there any ABU?

    Me self will just stick to United win, lose or draw. People say that United will be in decline after SAF retire. So fucking what? I will follow United no matter what. It won’t make me a sad ABL(ooserpoop), ABA(rse anal), ABC(helshit), etc. It won’t make me come to any rivals blog and acting like a freak and post some classless jibberish bullshits. It wont make me cheering X team, just because I don’t want Z team to win the league. I will only cheer Manchester United. I won’t waste my breath to cheer other team.


  37. Zibbie says:

    Rai yes a fresh paddy will go a long way in the stretch run.

    Yes Nani take over make SAF start you at Rt wing, but Rai, I love their Rafa Tony overlapping runs and both can deliver good, and consistent crosses. FEED THE BEASTS!!! Rooney and Kagawa and RVP rotate to a point, let Rooney run a stone off out wide. If need Young on in the 70 th min if he sucks air. Rooney hates, hates not playing even 20 mins. SAF has used it through out the Rooney relationship.

  38. Red Robin says:

    For Fulham game – I hope Rafa will start on right back, Tony V on right midfielder, Nani on left wing. Tony V energy going forward and his cutting passes into the box will be wasted if he gonna play on right back.

    I hope Evans will be ready to play, along with Vidic. Carrick then can play at midfield along with Cleverley. When Evans not yet ready, we should try either Keane, Veseli or Wootton. No more Carrick at central back, we need him more at midfield.

    Kagawa should play behind Rooney. We have to stick with this two as this is our future striking force. Remember Kagawa goal at Hannover guys. RVP, Welbz, Little pea will have to wait. I’d say that we should try some combinations upfront: Welbz + Little pea, RVP + Little pea, RVP + Welbz at next game. But this game vs Fulham at home, we have to stick with Kagawa + Rooney.


    Rafa Evans/Keane/Wootton Vidic Evra

    Tony V Cleverley Carrick Nani



  39. parryheid says:

    It wont happen but get Buttner on from the kick off,the quicker he gets that left back position sorted the better.
