I have the benefit of writing this after the teams have already come in for once, and unsurprisingly the team looks a little patched up with our recent rake of injuries. It’s a shame, but hey ho, thems the breaks (I don’t usually say stuff like that, sorry).
I can’t help but be excited for this season, what with the signing of one of my favourite outside-of-United players in Van Persie. Even before the RvP signing we were in better shape than at this point last season; we didn’t have Scholesy in the squad for one thing and Kagawa(wawa) will, from what I’ve read (having known little about him myself), surely prove to be an excellent acquisition. Really looking forward to watching him tonight.
I’ve run out of time, was going to share more nuggets of wisdom (stop laughing at the back!), but the pub beckons.
The team, in spite of the injuries, still has enough personnel to get excited about. Cleverley, Welbeck and Kagawa are all there AND Vida is back! Admittedly, I have a an aversion to T.V at right-back, that brings on something not too dissimilar to shingles, but it has been known to work.
I had a dream we won 0-1 with a Rooney header, so it seems wrong to go against that, especially as I was thinking it would be 0-1 with a Rooney header before that dream – which is probably what brought about the dream in the first place. BUT I would much prefer a RvP goal, of course.
Goal: Rooney (obviously)
