So at least in one way we have no expectations today so anything decent will be treated like magnificent victory.
FULL TIME – Nani gets the goal to make the score we all knew and predicted. thats the thing with Mcleish does not surprise you at all
86 – MU had enough now, knows nothing can harm us but at least Carruthers is showing positive signs of developing
81 – Given stops a riot of a score once again, at reflex saves no one better. No goals from set piece yet
73 – Rooney scores with ease, this really could have been so much more, Ireland off for Carruthers, bit 15 mins for him
71 – I guess it is slightly better, Mcleish has the excuse made and will ignore how the actual game was
66 – Heskey has a decent header which was tipped over for a corner, you know no threat then !
63 – Why clark came on again not sure, looks concussed and now subbed by Heskey
60 – Faulkner looks bored, I am of this, it is only 2-0 but anyone watching this knows how little fight we have put up. clark back on with a bandage and still no subs
57 – Clark has a nasty head injury from a clash with evra, looks shook up
51 – Mutton now gets booked for a challenge on young, of course with Hutton it was late, mistimed and ball left 20 mins ago
49 – Scholes booked for a nasty swipe at Gabby, if he comes off today will not be too bothered.
17:05 – Second half KICKS OFF and man motivator Mcleish has made no changes
HALF TIME – Oh so predictable, Hutton having a shocker, Lichaj should be a LB and put Baker at LB and nothing at all up front except for MOTM Weimann who has been great
43 – so predictable, young gets ball, Hutton (Mutton) fails to block yet another cross and nothing the CD’s could do about Wellbeck scoring
38 – Still all MU and Gardner got a booking for nothing, game is so soft now
33 – How is this still 1-0 ?? Given against MU forwards it seems some good saves and less I say about Hutton the better.
26 – Still all MU but Weimann impressing up front and set up Ireland for a curling shot
18 – Well all Man U but from a decent Bannan free Kick at least Clark got an header in
10 – Many saying a young dive but I think not. Lets ignore how dreadful Hutton was done by the typical young movement
6 – Young jinks past a statue of Hutton and clear trup by Baker, Rooney scores easy
30 secs – And weimann gets through and at least forces a save, weimann on the left, Gabby up front
16:02 – Kick OFF and here goes
15:56 – Sky have the lineup with Bannan and Gabby on the wings, Weimann up front on his own
15:52 – Near KO now and so glad Wilkins is not on the commentating team but of course Gary Neville will be, urrgghhh
15:04 – Team News and no real shocks
VILLA: Given, Hutton, Collins, Baker, Lichaj, Bannan, Gardner, Clark, Ireland, Weimann, Agbonlahor.
Guzan, Johnson, Delfouneso, Heskey, N’Zogbia, Cuellar, Carruthers.
N’Zogbia not started since twitter gate and maybe Cuellar should have started but doubt it.
14:00 – With two hours to KO no leaks of any team news and KARL_VILLA has not posted. So whilst we wait look at this footage when we believed we could get something there and did. This of course was with a team that never understood the concept of an ‘elite’.
