    Looking forward to this, we (Swansea) have already had a couple of competitive games under our belts and pulled in some quality signings. Could be a real chance for us to get the 3.

    Imagine RVP will be booed

    Better to be booed than killed!

    "Robin Van Persie's very lucky to be even alive, what that player did today is the most horrendous act I've seen for a long, long time. For many years. He should be banned by the FA, they've got to look into it ... that was really, really disgraceful what he did today"

    "He could've been killed. Irrespective of him having a yellow card he should be banned for a long, long time because that was the most dangerous thing I have seen on a football field for many, many years."

    Ferguson does make me laugh at times, he's so ridiculous. I'm looking forward to the game as well though ... it'll be a tough one but United need to hit the ground running this year and thus far we've been atrocious in pre-season. Can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.

    1-1 I reckon. Can't see many sides going to Swansea and winning this season.

    Think it's worth noting as well that Sky are doing a promotion where SS1 is free to view for the day, so people would be able to watch this on Freeview or if they don't have Sky Sports.

    2-0 to Swansea. Moyes realises he's can't step in and expect the SAF era winning mentality by default.

    Hope fabio starts at RB but think Moyes will play it safe with Jones. Interested to see how we line up in central midfield

    What I'd like to see;

    De Gea
    Jones Vidic Evans Evra
    Carrick Cleverley
    Valencia Kagawa Welbeck
    RVP

    I say Welbeck because his confidence might be high after scoring for England. Maybe he can hit some run of form? If Kagawa is poor and not creating anything we will have to throw Rooney on, but I wouldn't mind Januzaj getting 20 minutes. I just hope we don't put Anderson on.

    Edit: As for score prediction, I'm going for a 2-1 win. I think it will be extremely tough, but I can see RVP bagging at least one goal.

    I'm going for a score-draw - 2-2. Swansea have had EL qualifiers so abit more time to settle in their new signings before the season begins so think it'll be an exciting game.

    DDG
    Jones, Vidic, Evans, Evra
    Carrick, Cleverley
    Valencia, Kagawa, Giggs
    RVP

    Maybe he'll out Fabio in RB and Jones alongside Carrick to help neutralise Swansea's threat through the middle.
