    Rooney was not a product of Manchester United.
    No-one said that he was?

    I'm sorry, I thought cfc1992 was implying the fact that Wayne Rooney was a brilliant young player that Manchester United had brought through the youth team and into the first team!

    The last time Atletico won the Europa League, Bayern lost the Champions League final and Blackpool gained promotion at Wembley
    Oh and also, Terry was stripped of England captaincy in February of that year, and the eventual winners of the Champions League had beaten Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate in the semi-final, with the second leg held at the Nou Camp

    1) 4-2-3-1. Luiz and Cahill will be fit.

    2)I don't think we'll park the bus until after if and when we go ahead though, otherwise we have no attacking threat. Although you could argue that Drogba could be unplayable on his own up front if it is his day. Best option for me would be Mata and Malouda on the wings. Something tells me that he just isn't as influentual in the centre of the park, Lampard would be better in that attacking midfield role with Essien and Mikel holding behind him
    Sorry for the late reply.

    1) Ok.

    2) Hmmm. I personally think Mata is more effective in the middle behind the striker than on the wing. Also, Essien hasn't had the best of games in recent times and Lampard has performed well as a holding midfielder. Even though Malouda is average, you would have to do with him and Kalou on the wings IMO.

    Also, I was thinking. Who would you rather have as right back? Bosingwa or Ferreira?

    Fair point about Mata tbh. And Bosingwa will almost certainly be the right back

    Are Bayern playing a weakened team?

    I hope they get tired and injured for next weekend as this is a huge cup for them and they will have to play hard with a strong team.

    Nope, it's arguably their best:

    Neuer
    Lahm Boateng Badstuber Alaba
    Robben Gustavo Schweinsteiger Ribery
    Kroos Gomez

    Badstuber, Alaba and Gustavo are banned for the CL. You can watch the game here http://www.unsports.me/6786/1/Watch-...Bayern-Munich/

    Bayern have a penalty, but I tell you what. They got it from when the Dortmund goalkeeper sent Gomez absolutely flying inside the area :P.
