John O'Shea is spouting off about how United can win all their remaining games, these are the sort of comments which can bite you in the arse, hopefully on a wednesday night in the North West.
United for the treble, best team in 9 years, going to win the lot, all quotes being bandied around this week, some even from our manager!
Thing is, Pompey have nothing to lose tomorrow night, counter-attack is our forte, and the way United play there could be many an opportunity to try it!
Vidic is a major doubt, he picked up a virus before the cup-tie against Spurs and remains dicky.
Paul Scholes the media's favourite darling is pushing for a starting berth, his cameo in the F.a cup was proof of his fitness enough.
I doubt he will be seeking out Richard Hughes for an after match beer, but Portugese shagger extrordinaire is on top scoring form, both on and off the pitch.
Milan Baros has come in and made all the right noises, he has vowed to fire the goals to send us into Europe, if so his service needs to be a little better than of late.
Like Scholes, Sean Davis has hit the comeback trail, but he will have to squeeze into midfield along side the sublime Diarra, Mendes and Mvuemba, poor old Arnie looks most likely to roll out of the central bed of 3.
Up front I reckon it will be just the one, Benjani may be asked to fill the right wing berth again with Baros the lone striker.
The Nugget is a definite absentee with a hernia, I feel this would have been a likely omission anyway, what with Milan signing on.
Big Sol should be fit after back trouble, and a fine time it will be too, he has yet to face Man U in a Pompey shirt!
Lassie has slipped in like Ronaldo on Gemma Atkinson, he is looking the player we all hoped for, and against United he will get another chance to show he really is the Dogs.
Pompey go to Old Trafford, Pompey lose, what other stats do you want?
United have dropped 2 home points all season, those were on the first day, can Pompey snatch away some more? Have a punt here.
1 of the top four will be met by another, Chelsea, they really are like bloody buses aren't they?
