Match Preview:Manchester United vs Bolton Wanderersie

October 16, 2009

The Premier league is back after a another boring week of Internationals, the only good I saw was Berba getting an hattrick! Rooney got injured, so he will miss the North-west Derby tomorrow. It’s really going to be interesting because though Bolton had a bad start they are giving top teams a hard time. They almost Defeated Liverpool, due to a stupid referee decision, which led to a red card cost them the match. And Also taking the lead twice against Spurs, but giving away goals too let them comeback each time, ended 2-2.

Well some United fans are relieved… Why? Well because Van Der Sar is back! Yes Foster has not been the greatest but at times he was awesome but also. But more often that not he was horrible. Though I think he will end up being United’s number 1, sooner than later.

The most Inform player would be Berbatov with 7 goals in 4 game for Club and country. Owen will be fit, and free thank god his injury was not serious.

Carrick was an unused sub, so he’s available, well most of the squad is available.

This is what Fergie said this morning

Rooney’s out – that’s the one certainty,” the boss said. “We’re doing our best to get him fit for Wednesday but I’ve got my doubts.

“Wayne has a calf injury and they can be troublesome. I certainly hope he’ll be fit for Liverpool [next Sunday] but we won’t be taking any chances in Moscow.”

The manager’s disappointment over Rooney’s absence is tempered by the return of van der Sar, who’s not played a competitive fixture for the Reds since last season’s Champions League final. The goalkeeper, 38, injured his hand in a pre-season friendly but returned for United’s Reserves on 6 October, keeping a clean sheet against Everton.

“Edwin’s fit and he will play,” Sir Alex said. “He’s trained for quite a while now but because it was a hand injury, you don’t take any chances. He had a Reserves game about 10 days ago and came through that fine, it was the confidence booster he needed.”

Michael Owen “will be involved” against Bolton after recovering from the groin injury that curtailed his September start against Wolfsburg. But United will sweat over Darren Fletcher’s availability following the midfielder’s injury while training with Scotland.

“Everyone else is okay,” Sir Alex said. “A few bumps and bruises but nothing seriouse”

Rooney is the last person I would want to be injured when we goto Merseyside, plus that’s the same day as his birthday!

Well Carrick and Fletcher might be at the centre of the midfeild. Anderson and Valencia on the flanks. Rio and Vidic should start, with Rafael back at the bench and O’shea at Right back and Evra left. Berbatov and Owen up forward

    I think Rooney is out but Berbatov is in good from. Seven goals in four game for club and country (got that stat from you!) so I think he could do the job.

    One small problem, though, is Bolton are just going to defend. 4-5-1 is likely by Megson, a very negative manager at times, so it could be like 1-0 to United. (My Prediction)

    Hopefully, that earthquake won’t do to much damage. I heard it’s not that strong and maybe not lethal as you think. (i took time to research that out just now)

      that’s nice of you… Berba Played amazing, deserved a goal, His Flying Volley should have gone in, but sadly the keeper was as good…
