  4. Thank you. I'm down.
  5. Giggs starts, Rooney doesn't, Kagawa doesn't

    yeah we're out.
  6. I'm guessing the team news is out then, mind posting it?
  7. Da Gea
    Rafael Vidic Ferdinand Evra
    Carrick Cleverly
    Nani Giggs Welback

    RM team is the same apart from Benzema out and Higuian in.
  8. Kagawa has played fantastic in every game since the Madrid, and has just come off a hat-trick, why would you not include him? Nani has had a poor season but has had one good game, and he starts. Baffles me. I'm not even that fussed about Rooney not starting to be honest, but I'm baffled as to why Kagawa isn't. He's our most confident player on the ball, and his Dortmund background does us huge favours. Argh.
  9. So in a game you need workrate to cope with a Madrid team who's hitting some form you play Ryan Giggs in a position Rooney was made to play, especially with the tie in the balance. This is either Fergie's greatest trick or his worst.

    All I can think of is he's thinking of using Nani on the break? He's quicker than Kagawa isn't he?
  10. My formation isn't confirmed. It's most likely this:

    Da Gea
    Rafael Vidic Ferdinand Evra
    Carrick Cleverely
    Nani Welback Giggs


    Da Gea
    Rafael Vidic Ferdinand Evra
    Nani Carrick Cleverely Giggs

    Evra is a POOR DEFENDER, but great going forward. Giggs does track but Welback would do better in that position. In a game where we NEED THE BALL we have taken out Kagawa (best on the ball with RVP and this guy -->) and Rooney.

    I have no optimism with his choices but I hope he has proven me wrong again. Nani's last game was great, and he is a much better winger than Valencia atm. Meh meh meh meh meh. The team who started against Madrid last time > this.
  11. fear for united w├Čth that team feels slightly negative but fergie knows best
  12. 4-3-3 is the likely formation. fml
  13. Fuck ITV coverage arghhhhhhh
  14. Giggs has given it away at every single opportunity. Nice.
  15. Nani = best player so far with Welback
  16. It was a decent cross I thought, RVP kinda ruined it by being so slow.

    Nani is too quick.
  17. Manchester playing wayyyy better
  18. Real dominates.
  19. SAF being a genius thus far. Giggs has tracked back well and Nani + Welback have been fantastic. Great first half, United were a much bigger threat. Could have scored 3 goals.
  20. Welback doing a job on your general -- Alonso. Real Madrid seem rather lost without him. Rafael + Giggs on Ronaldo also. Di Maria -- your biggest threat imo -- off for Kaka could be a game-changer for both teams. Kaka still has it in his locker but him being on instead of Di Maria really dampens your counter-attacking threat.
