United vs Crystal Palace

 Tom (@Tom_McGhee):

It’s now Mancunian folk-lore that by this stage in Ferguson’s first season, he’d already got the league sewn up and was planning the total domination of Europe we now all take for granted – its fair to say on this alone, Moyes appointment has been nothing short of  an unmitigated disaster. Still, now we’re no longer in contention for any major honours, could this game against Palace be the perfect opportunity to launch the next generation of Manchester United? Of course not; none of this makes any sense BECAUSE WE’VE ONLY PLAYED THREE GAMES….

Misplaced rant aside, I am hoping we’ll try and score some goals this saturday – speaking to United fans over the last couple of weeks, there’s been almost unanimous agreement that we definitely won at Swansea by scoring more goals, whilst our subsequent draw and defeat were, conversely, due to not scoring at all. In a perfect world, this will mean a RVP brace, a Welbeck wonder goal (for the haterz) and Fellaini head-butting* Speroni if for no other reason than to announce his arrival/comedy. Normally, this is where you’d have the comprehensive analysis of the opposition and their various strengths/weaknesses but – and let’s be honest – no-one really cares and I can’t be bothered**

Prediction: Going with 4-0 United and Kagawa having the game of his life. Rather than enjoy this, it’ll be used as further evidence of why Moyes is a clown. Somehow.

* Head-butt maybe construed as too violent but I’m sure we all agree that the very least he could do is give the Palace team a really stern look before kick-off.

**I don’t actually believe in Crystal Palace. Too similar to Emerald City.

Brett:

The international break came at just the right time, so we could all get really super extra ready for Fellaini’s debut … Oh, I didn’t do anything … did you? Not even any silly string? We could have done a put it on our head.

I like Fellaini, with the potential to move to second-base really quickly. I think he’s the kind of player I can really get behind – a bit daft and well, being a bit daft is enough. I imagine he’ll play his fave posish (though prolly not today), which will free Carrick up, a little, to do his worst (though I’d prefer he’s do his best). If it’s not working by next week, get rid. I’m sure Fellaini will be feeling extra galvanised after the vote of confidence from the manager, letting him know he was “always pencilled in”.

Despite their performance – or should I say result? (I don’t know, I didn’t see it? It’s a genuine question. Was the performance good, or just the result?) – against Blunderland (<—–Hi-waitforit-larious!), Palace are on a hiding to nothing in this game. That’s not meant to come across as anything but disrespectful, but more: if I want United to win the title (check), then that’s what I have to envisage happening. It’s like Moyes said in the press conference: “You make your Palace from Crystal. Diamond crushes Crystal. Danny is Diamond.” And Ian Holloway.

I can’t put off talking formations and that for another week, by pretending I’m waiting to fully appreciate Moyes’ approach so … oh wait … I feel a bit poorly.

Prediction: 2-2-2-2-2-0 Danny with his customary two. Lots of other people to score two, too. Yeah, maybe an owl will get amongst the scorers, now you mention it. Moyes to parody Hollaway’s parodying of Di Canio by twerking in front of the Palace dugout.
