Rafael-Ferdinand-Vidic-Evra
Valencia-Carrick-Giggs-Park
             Rooney
            Hernandez

hmm.. do you think so? I really like Giggs in the centre, have been playing very good in that position recently.. Will be interesting to see if Fergie goes for Rooney-Hernandez, or just Rooney up front.

Is Puyol ready for the game?

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Rooney is at least ready for the game.

He recently wrote on his Twitter:
"Just going on a walk round the park to loosen the legs up for later. Soooooo excited."

"Thx for all good luck messages. Listening to the beatles now just relaxing in hotel. Can't wait for game. Were ready. #unitedwestand"


Will Rooney be a key player in the game tonight?

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Rio Ferdinand is delighted with the pitch, he wrote on his Twitter last night: "Just finished training at Wembley Stadium....the pitch is in beautiful condition...."

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Rumours at Wembley says United will have a midfielder.

Rumours also say Mascherano will play as centre-back for Barca as Abidal is not fit enough.

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Barcelona will have too much class for Manchester United. The media consensus is that United are a better team then the defeat in Rome. I disagree, the match will be won in midfield and, United haven't improved in that area in two years.
Barcelona, have improved in that area as, Busquets and Iniesta have stepped up another level since Rome.

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

"Rumours at Wembley says United will have a midfielder." lol. a little bit to quick there.

Rumours says United will start with 5 on the midfield.

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Rumours have just circulated that United won't start with Hernandez.

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

You might be right about Abidal not starting. He was substituted at the weekend as, he ran out of legs. He trained fine yesterday though.
