I've been a Liverpool supporter all my life. Born and raised in Liverpool, football was a way of life when I was a kid. I've been fortunate enough to stand on the kop watching the likes of Highway, Keegan, Dalglish, Barnes, Rush and many more greats. One of the best games ever been to was Liverpool v St Etienne in 77

Just watching MUTV waiting for the Real Madras match to start and they had an advert featuring a clip from Giggsy's first press conference when he took over as manager last season where he jokes about him having just given himself a new 5 year contract. Still makes me laugh out loud when I see it lmfao

I think Man u can beat Real They cant tie because it looks like Roma will have a better goal differential and win on the tiebreaker. man uhas to win to advance to the championship.

Should beat them I think, there's no Ronnie as far as we know...but they are playing for pride so you never know, they could surprise us.
No idea of the lineups yet.

M Keane Jones Evans
Valencia Fletcher Herrera Young
Good to see Michael Keane getting a start. All of our young defenders have done great so far.

Wonder why the crowd didn't sing along to the Star Spangled Banner..? Very odd.

2-1 to United at halftime and they deserve to go in ahead. The difference between Van Gaal's United and Moyes' United is just about as much night and day as you can get.
Our fast-paced attacking and counter attacking football is back, our passing movement is back (and the triangles are a little different due to the different formation), our accurate diagonal balls from the center of midfield to either flank is back and we're not only keeping possession better but we're also regaining it pretty quickly once it's lost and we're looking pretty solid at the back too.
I'm trying my best not to get too excited because it's just pre-season but I reckon we've got a good shot at winning the Premiership next season. And that's before we sign anyone else!

Another great performance, albeit against a weakened Real Madras side. So it's United against either the dodgy red scouse gits ( ) or the Bitter Blues ( ).
I REALLY like some of the football we've been playing since Van Gaal has taken over.
Edit: Ah, didn't realise it was confirmed as the red scouse gits earlier!

Keane is getting eaten alive
To be fair though that was an U21 regular starter last season vs the most expensive player in the world, and he didn't do that badly lol

Ive joined the fantasy league. Looks like there is only the 2 of us there so far. Hopefully a few more of you guys will join. Maybe if we could get a forum announcement?
Liverpool fan here. Looking forward to winning this "friendly" final tonight

Good idea I will see what I can do.

Won't be taking part myself unfortunately. I'm the Kiss Of Death on players with these things, don't want to be responsible for any cruciate ligament injuries!

A pretty poor first half this morning but had the best of play in the second half. 3-1 to United was the final score, goals from Gerrard (pen), Rooney, Mata and Lingard.
I think the main problems for us was that Evans and Fletch were knackered, we played much better when Blackett and Cleverley came on to replace them.
Could have been a draw if Lambert wasn't useless lol

Just thought I'd give this thread a *bump* cos it's all kicking off (I love puns lol) tomorrow.
United have got Swansea at Old Trafford tomorrow, should win it I think. Plenty of injuries so we'll probably see the following lineup:
Jones Smalling Blackett
Young Fletcher Herrera James
Am quite happy to have both Blackett and James covering for Evans and Shaw because they've deserved to see first team action at some point this season anyway based on their pre-season performances. And Young is probably a better bet to have than Valencia at right wing-back too even if Valencia was fit, again based on pre-season performances.
Rafael is training again but I reckon Young will start ahead of him because he's had more training and match time with the new system even if he is fit to play.
Kick off is at 12:45, can't wait for the season to start!!!

Well that wasn't a good start lol. Got beat 1-2. Not sure what has happened to our one and two touch football or our pressing. No pace to speak of. Oh well, it can't get much worse lol

Yeah need RVP back and some help on the defensive end. Still waiting to see if they get Di maria or Vidal before Sept?
