Man U v. Portsmouth

It appears we don't have much in the hopper (see right, it's empty, everything has spilled out) at the moment. My excuse is that I am getting married next weekend, so my future-wife has commandeered all of my available free time to help with the wedding.

But, there is a match to follow today as Manchester United plays at Fratton Park. Pompey is coming off an embarrassing loss to Chelski last week and Man U had an embarassing draw with Newcastle. The two squads hope to right the ship today, while only one can possibly do so and it is possible neither of them do which would be fun.

After the jump, the lineups...feel free to play in the comment sandbox during the match. But, please, don't piss or shit in the sand.

Manchester United

1 Edwin Van der Sar (G)
5 Rio Ferdinand (D)
22 John O'Shea (D)
6 Wes Brown (D)
3 Patrice Evra (D)
15 Nemanja Vidic (D)
8 Anderson (M)
18 Paul Scholes (M)
24 Darren Fletcher (M)
32 Carlos Tevez (F)
10 Wayne Rooney (F)


1 David James (G)
23 Sol Campbell (D)
15 Sylvain Distin (D)
30 Armand Traore (D)
5 Glen Johnson (D)
3 Younes Kaboul (D)
28 Sean Davis (M)
6 Lassana Diarra (M)
8 Papa Bouba Diop (M)
9 Peter Crouch (F)
14 Jermain Defoe (F)

Man U gets Anderson back from Olympic duty and Tevez from bereavement leave. While Crouchaldinho hopes to break his duck for this tour of duty for Pompey.

Trying to get sopcast going, but the work firewall is giving me issues. But it seems that I've missed a grand total of zip in the first 20 min.

ah, but that's not exactly true, see... Diop picked up a yellow card.

Pompey getting the better of this match so far, with the more dangerous chances.

Lingering Bursitis said...

I would love it if Pompey could beat them


Maximus said...

Who are those guys on ManU's bench? Do they play in the sunday church league?

The NY Kid said...

Good thing I started Distin for the OG. Bastard.

Haven't seen any footage, but when did 'Darren Fletcher' become Scottish for "Christiano"? So, on a team with Rooney and Tevez up front, all of ManUre's goals are courtesy of him? Things that make no sense...
