I’ve made a bold prediction based on copying. Rob, a Liverpool fan – who writes the Bi-focal posts – assures me there is no way in the world we will not win this game. He’s so sure Liverpool will lose he’s locking himself in his house and refusing to watch the game with me – me his bestest friend in the world ever. Yes, yes, I know being best friends with a Liverpool is frowned upon if you support United, but I’m an adult and sane.
Rob, in spite of his prediction, has been relatively not as unhappy with Liverpool this season as some and as he’s my only real frame of reference for them I’ll have to ignore him. It’s not so much he thinks they’re any good, but more their age old problem of actually sticking the ball in the back of the net is the only real issue they have, apart from they have no midfield or defence and no-one knows what they’re doing (Did that paragraph make any sense? I sure hope not).
These games, regardless of either teams form, are (almost) always compelling and it’s not really surprising that again it finds itself played out against a backdrop of controversy and a potential for flash points. If there isn’t an undercurrent of something, this fixture will inevitably find a way of making sure there is. Let’s just hope the game passes by relatively trouble free *Crosses everything*
Team wise (I’ve given up guessing) we’re without Rooney: Liverpool Slayer which means we have to rely on Van Persie: Liverpool Slayer … It’s tough at the top. We have more than enough to beat this struggling Liverpool side. I expect Rio and Evra (always my first choice regardless of Buttner’s play for LB) to come in and De Gea to start in pegs. Carrick is looking really well this season and I can see him starting alongside ClevZ, with Kagawa forming a three. That wasn’t a very good impression of giving up on guessing was it? Oh yeah and I feel a T.V goal is due (which means nothing).
Goals: Van Persie, T.V, Evra (What? I love a happy ending)
