Is Rooney likely to play on Saturday?

Just trying to work out how many blood pressure pills I need beforehand.....

He won't be dropped for fitness reasons, as his gashed leg, is nothing more than a scratch.

He could be rested though.

I think he will play, but was in a minority of 2-1 on this subject last night.

Tbh, I wouldn't be too concerned if he does play, he's never really had a good game at the Riverside, and he's out of form at the moment anyway.

I'd be more worried about Ronaldo.

Apart from the one where he scored both goals in a 2-0 win.

speaking from a United point of view, I expect Fergie to field a strong side for Saturday. Injuries may obv change that, but I'd expect a front 6 of Park, Fletcher, Carrick, Ronaldo, Larsson, Rooney

Sky Sports say's he will play

Can't remember that one bob, you're probably right, but apart from that, he hasn't had great games at our place.

Turner in kiss-of-death shocker!

If we can knack Ronaldo in the opening minutes we might have a chance. Then even if we go on to lose ill take some satisfaction out of the game.

Woodgate will sort him right out,no need to knack him.

Hopefully, all his reserves will play, but Fergie will be "swapping a few players around" for Saturday.

Does he wind you up, Buddy?
I'll listen out for dissatisfied foot stamping in the West Stand, and look forward to you throwing mint imperials in his direction.

No stamping of feet please, just rattle your jewellery as loud as you can.

I can't eat Mint Imperials, they play havoc with my sugar tolerance. It'll more than likely be peppermint Extra.

Yes, he does, btw. Although less so recently, he seems to have piped down a bit.
