Considering I'm just joking about having made such silly bets, then obviously not.
No Herrera, Shaw or Gashford for them.
Comically coiffured (but ordinarily talented) thick Belgian Choc-Waffle, Maryanne Fellatio, has however apparently been handed his ticket and seat reservation for the 14:38 Intercity Express from Manchester Piccadilly on Saturday.
That'll please United fans. Remember, all they know is the odd paragraph they've read from those desperately poor 'pundits'. Maybe they saw Deeney shove that Spud defender over last week. Maybe they even heard Troy being cheesy on the radio this week. "Who, me? Aggressive Harry? Ha ha haha. No. Ha ha ha. No really. Ha ha. Well, perhaps a bit." and so on. Maybe the old long-ball reputation from GT's days will come into it a bit and the fact we scored two headed goals from set pieces last time out.
One way or the other, they're going to be expecting us to be Wimbledon II. Gallant triers, full of huff and puff. Charging into tackles. Hoofing it up to big Troy to chest down to his nippy little strike partner. They're going to expect hustle and bustle and in yer face aggression from us. They think we can't play. They don't think we can pass it about a bit. They don't think we can play on the floor or in tight triangles.
Hopefully The Sullen One (Huffy Jose) will also fall into that way of thinking and plan for that, desperately including a half-fit Fellatio in order to try to 'match up physically' to the coming aggressive assault.
I reckon Troy was doing a very smart thing in that radio interview. Probably Javi put him up to it. Lead 'em on a bit. Behind that grin, there's the mind of a genius I reckon.
My prediction is that the Belgian barber dodger gets substituted off in the first half, with a recurrence of his injury, and with the wretched United already trailing and dispirited.....
Amazing Match Fact:
Nearly 80% of the world's billiard balls are made in Belgium!
United team just arrived at Watford Junction.
Why are they getting the train? Can’t they afford a private jet? Tinpot northern monkeys
Sorry, forgot Fellaini portrait:-
Well if it's good enough for Neymar!!
Hahaha, games tomorrow the idiots.
Cool, next time I go there I'll order a plate of boules frites.
ooh ooh Mr Peevly
That would mean Mr Mourinho is Mr Peegsly
Could the awarding of a spot kick(s) be significant tomorrow?
Every fixture at Vicarage Road against Utd since our return to the Prem has seen us awarded a penalty - and every one of them has been scored by Troy.
This season, Utd have been awarded a penalty in 3 out of their 4 fixtures.
Could it take a poor decision to see Utd's penalty stat continue and condemn us to our first loss? Or could our run of pens against them continue - bearing in mind, Troy has seen his last two saved?!!
Despite our excellent start, it's probably fair to say the good luck we'd been denied over the past season has returned somewhat so far (Palace missing chances, Kane heading over etc). The pessimist in me feels that it's bound to change at some point - and who worse than it being against bloody Mourinho?!!
Added my poll
Tomorrow's referee is Mike Dean. He's a notoriously controversial official, however, he's actually been quite good for us. He tends to make strange decisions against the bigger club, so this could actually work in our favour.
Did they win 4? Thought it was 3.
Making it big on NBC:
Fantastic - the Hornets have landed! Luv the map of Essex rather than Hertfordshire. Incidentally all the 3pm kick-offs trialling VAR tomorrow. What's the betting Mike Dean makes a controversal decision - hopefully in our favour.
Probably the most carbon neutral method of travel, also it's a direct train from Manchester so not a massive inconvenience to use the train.
Fastest trains between Manchester and Watford are a little over 2 hours. It would surely take longer to fly what with getting to the airport, checking in & departure waiting time. Plus there's no airport in Watford
I wonder two things though.. Did they take a local bus when they got out of the station? and seriously.. Wonder if they'd do the same for matches in London? Seems unlikely with the hassles of arriving in central London, security issues etc.
So what's the weather down there like people?
Shorts or long John's weather? I need to pack.
Am I the only one to vote a Manu win?
The pessimist in me says we surely can't win 5 out of 5.
It's more ridiculous than a normal sane level headed gender standard general member of public entering the BB house this weekend.
Bikinis down here m8. Facking Costa Brava innit.
Sweet. I'll pack my WFC banana hammock then.
As we kick off at 5.30 that trial won't affect us and it's not actually going to be used ..just they will work out when it might have into action ..
3, of course.
All the same.
The most poxy method.
These guys are the Hollywood of football & they rock up on a train!
Btw, the most carbon neutral is doing it on FeeFah.
The map is probably the Kingdom of Essex which incorporates modern hertfordshire. You know how the colonials mangle history
Precisely I’ll be sure to book a little ticket the next time they come down. Go into first class and tell them all what i think of them
They should have all rocked up in the back of a white van carrying a can of stella each.
No, you aren't.
How people are predicting a win v players like Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Valecia, Sanchez, Matic, Bailly and De Gea is hilarious
Any one of their players would walk into our first team, whilst none of ours would make the bench for them.
We might well win - anything is possible. But to actuslly predict a win? Pure Fantasyland.
I'm not sure I'm comfortable with all of the good coverage we are getting
Doucoure or Pererya, over McTominay surely. Ben Foster over Romero? Might seem pedantic but I think you exaggerate the quality of their fringe players. I do agree that they will always be heavy favourites regardless of form though.
I really don’t understand how VAR can start after the season has begun?
