The CHAAAAAAAARRRMPIONNSSSS! Come on, you all sing that in your head, when ITV interrupt the commercials to bring us some football. I like to add a *one armed conductor movement, for the strings bit*. Where am I? “You’re on your blog, there’s a path in front of you that you’ve been down before, that no-one is following you along. Take two small steps forward … Oh, how did that happen. You’ve fallen off the edge.” Knightmare.
David Moyes has very little European experience, so everyone keeps telling me, or maybe they’re telling everyone and I’m just paranoid – either way I struggle to see how that really matters. Fergie had loads of experience towards the end and still made some humongous errors of judgement (suddenly got a craving for hummus). Besides, The Premier League and The Champions’ League are not as different like, as they once were; not with all those talented players and coaches coming over ‘ere and taking all our not so talented players’ and coaches’ jobs. It’s exciting! A new manager and a new Champions’ League season.
Presuming Danny wont feature and at home we’ll be mostly playing a 4-4-2 (if that even exists anymore), I reckon with the derby in mind, Moyes might stick with Rooney and RVP, to give them more match time, to sharpen their thing. This means, I think, no Kagawa again :-(. I’d go t’foot of our stairs, if Fellaini and Carrick don’t start together in central midfield.
If Kagawa continues to be shoved to the periphery then my bottom lip is going to drag so deep, I’m going to need a shotgun to fix it.
I don’t know anything about Bayer Leverkusen, apart from they beat us once, by not actually beating us once. Good luck with that when away goals don’t count, you big cheats. Oh, wait I just remembered a thing I know about them … Sami Hyypia manages them, lol.
Prediction: 3 – 2 win. Danny with his customary two. Fellaini to head the ball lots of times and at least once into the goal. Carrick in his ‘freer’ role, to score a couple of hat-tricks. RVP to score a couple too. Oh, and Rooney. How many’s that?
