  2. LOL

    did anyone use the beat the manager app and submit their team?
    (i think that was the point)

    Score 2-2

  3. Whoever the starting XI are for Man United, I hope their formation has defensive lapses so they have a higher chance of conceding goals. Newcastle's attack can then capitalise on this weakness to score goals. I would love both Ba and Cisse to play, as either of them, if not both, are capable of scoring many goals. At the same time, for me anything less than a three-pronged attack would do for Man U, otherwise their attack will be too dangerous and they too will be scoring goals. Best if RVP doesn't start as he is in hot form now and thus a huge threat.
