    Having grown up in a house with Utd fans, and attending OT regularly with my old man on his season tickets, it's utterly insane to me to be considering we have a chance at making it 3 wins in a row again them, and this is without mentioning being significantly better than them in both games and the match that was a draw.

    Wolves in the Prem under Mick
    Rest players v Man Utd so we have the best chance of winning our next League game v Burnley

    Wolves now
    Rest players in a Europa Cup game so we have the best chance of beating Man Utd.

    What a time to be alive

    Just how far we've come and really crazy!
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Think the players were probably rested because we'd won the first leg 4-0.

    I fully expect Jota to be kicked up in the air again. Think the team possibly picks itself but I would go Vinagre left and Otto on the right ...

    Word has it though that Traore is starting to look a player. Exciting times - bring them on.

    Assuming Doc is fit he is definitely starting. Even though Man U are less good than they've been they're still one of the better teams in the prem. Also, they're probably better than last season.

    Hoping Shaw plays and Jota gets in his face early.

    It'll be the usual suspects barring injuries, Traore although he did ok Thursday is nowhere near this level yet, if Docs not fit, Jonny will play rwb with Vinagre on the left, don't think he's quite ready either but wouldn't let anyone down

    For this game we will play the usual suspects unless there are any minor injury concerns - have 3 days till the next match & travel to Turin is not as much of issue as going to Armenia.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    Beat them 4-0 and we're in the CL spots. Easy.

    This is bloody awful isn't it? A Saturday and Sunday without football just feels wrong. An incomplete weekend.
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57

    It'll all be worth it when we beat these lot (hopefully)

    I think it will be the normal team and we'll win 2-0
    We will get 50pts (I worked it out on my computer) W13 D11 L14

    What a week this is going to be. This time five years ago we'd have been playing Gillingham and Crawley. Still struggle to get my head round it some days...

    This is the start of 5 games in 13 days.

    I wonder if Nuno will have to think about taking players off at some point in this game even if we are still level or losing?

    The joys of a text message from Northallerton!
    I'll be representing yorkshire again. I'll be in the London around 6 depending on what time I get out of work. Hopefully I can be as entertaining in real life as I am online!

    For those who may be late/might miss the pub, I'll also be at burnley, so you will get your opportunity to take the piss, don't worry.

    I look forward to seeing friendly faces!

    A note for anyone driving in from the Willenhall Road or Bilston Road way tonight - Keep an eye on the traffic situation as some dozy fook has managed to hit a tram this morning and that island (one by the Novotel) is partially closed. Hopefully cleared the tram away by this evening (car managed to ram it off the tracks)

    Saw that in the E&S. Not quite sure how you manage that without jumping lights.

    Not sure on my ETA. Probably finishing work early and then need to rest this bastard injury for a bit before heading to the pub.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    Nothing quite like going to Redcafe to psyche you up.

    Hope we stuff the arrogant sods.

    Just got off the phone with the london. They're installing a velvet rope and ticketing system so you can all line up to make a variation of the same comment to me...

    God I'm looking forward to this!

    Jumped the lights at about 60 to push it off the tracks and flip the car over!

    I look forward to that story in the E&S later.

    Normal time for me. I was going to be a little later but I NEED to be nearer the front of the housecoat comment queue.

    I am confident for this one.

    Utd's midfield is Shite.
    We can get about them, i would try and get Jota Against maguire, and Raul against lindelof that would cause all sorts of problems.
    I feel our midfield 3 is better than there midfield.
    I would only take Maguire, Rashford, and Lingard.
    Maguire would get in over Bennett
    Rashford, and Lingard would make the bench

    We should feel confident but United are still a very good team. If Ole sticks to how they played v Chelsea, we will get room in the final third but I thought the movement of their front 3 in that game was good and they pretty good on the counter as well (helped that Chelsea gave up mind). If Pogba fancies turning up he will be a key figure.

    Interesting to see Ole sets up as he got it wrong twice last season

    Chelsea should have been out of site by half time.
    Utd's 2 goals in a minute gave the scoreline a ridiculous look

    But they weren't and Utd took advantage of that. I will be very surprised if Utd leave gaps like they did at home last week

    The league game he got it abysmally wrong trying to match us pound for pound. Dalot and Shaw got murdered that night and while I expect us to get something out of tonight I doubt he’ll make such a monumental fuck up again.
