    Yeah, he over-exaggerates quite a bit.

    Not sure but it seems overly defensive considering Utd's apparent line up.

    They've done with a 4-5-1, looking to break on the counter I think with Valencia, Park and Welbeck providing the movement.

    Or maybe we've 5 at the back to stop the counter? Hopefully Kelly and Enrique have a good game and get really high up the pitch.

    Can't see how this team will work tbh.... not too many attacks. Bellamy in the bench was unsurprising...

    looks like a draw.

    Could work like it did vs Chelsea last season, alternatively could **** up like Stoke 2 weeks ago.

    We look a bit light in the middle.

    Well I think Utd are lining up as:


    ...............................D e Gea............................. ..
    Silva...........Smalling........ ......Evans.............Evra
    ...............................C arrick.......................... ........
    Valencia..........Scholes......G iggs...........Park......
    ..............................We lbeck......................

    In theory, Gerrard's and Henderson's energy should be enough to counter those three in the Utd midfield? It's going to be more about stopping the men on the wings imo?

    Would love it if we got the early goal, think forcing them to come out and attack is going to hurt them more.

    I reckon carra will play just in front of the back 4 like we suggested earlier in the week. Otherwise that is ridiculously defensive

    Last time we did 3 at the back it completely sucked, because the opposition just played 1 striker. The exact same thing has happened here again! I'm not optimistic now.

    Also, where do you guys get the lineups from? I get ours from the official site but before BBC football updates, where is the quickest? Thanks!

    I've just noticed, it's not directly related, Essien is on the bench for Chelsea against QPR.

    Hopefully. Interesting that Spearing isn't even on the bench although he trained yesterday.

    I'd like to see someone stay tight on Scholes.

    Twitter probably. Every Tom, **** and Harry begins to post it as soon as it's announced.

    Got to be this for me, hopefully Enrique and Kelly can overlap a lot.

    --------------------------Reina-------------------------
    --------Carragher------ Skrtel------Agger---------
    ---Kelly --------------------------------------Enrique-----
    --------------Gerrard---------Henderson--------------
    ----Downing-----------------------------------Maxi------
    -------------------------Carroll----------------------------

    We need to be wary of Hernandez coming off the bench again and scoring like in the league.

    Chris Williams on Twitter: "Very kind of England's cricketers to collapse [to 72 all out, meaning Pakistan win second Test by 72 runs and have an unbeatable 2-0 in the three-match series] so I dont miss the start of today's football action #bbcfootball."
