What a day of football we have in store for us today. Romans Chelsea take on a jubilant West Ham team in the early afternoon kick-off at Stamford Bridge, then Liverpool against the soldiers of Bolton and then the icing on the cake for the day, as the most famous premiership fixture in the last decade takes place at 4:00pm at Old Trafford.
With Man Utd being on such a fantastic run and our lads also being in the best form they have been in all season, this is sure to be a mouth watering encounter. Im not too sure if the boss will play the 4-5-1 or revert back to the 4-4-2 with Adebayor returning upfront with Henry. Perhaps the 4-5-1 in this away match may be sensible, but with Adebayor looking so impressive in recent weeks, our best form of defence WILL be attack.
Adebayor has power, strength, more than average pace for his size and build, bottle and gets in where nobody else likes to. An African warrior with bags of determination and add to that an instant first touch, skill and an eye for goal and you have Emmanuel Adebayor. I hope that he can keep improving and continue to develop this great little understanding with Mr. Va Va Voom. In the last few games they have played together, they have been involved with about 75% of the goals.
With Adebayor returning to the squad, and no new injuries, we are in good shape for the tie. Campbell has come back to fitness at a time where he perhaps isn’t needed as much as he was previously with Senderos being absolutely solid alongside brother Toure, who has really risen as a senior member of the team at only 25 years old. He has led the backline by example and I really think that these two can be something very solid for years to come. Don’t you just love Toure’s attitude!? Absolutely fantastic!
Reyes has warned that he wont be scared to get stuck in against Manure. Thank God because it was at Utd a few seasons back where he got hacked the heck out of by Gary Nevile and Co! He is the most fouled player in the Premiership and Europe, and it isn’t that hard to see why with his direct as an arrow dribbling skills. Reyes could be key today if we are to get any glory, aswel as Hleb on the opposite flank.
Rooney & Saha are on form, and Van Nistelrooy is the joint top scorer of the league with Henry, there are sure to be goals! What a terrific game, just like you all I cant wait! Come on you GOONERS!
