Is that confirmed line up its pretty strong although wanted to Campbell playing. By the way does anyone what the score was this game last year?

Yep, that is the confirmed lineup and i'm sure campbell will appear sooner or later. Last year we beat them 1-0 but lost to them on penalties in the final of the tournament.

i dont understand why giggs is playing central and fletcher wide. yes, a pre season friendly but what is the point of playing players out of position.

Neville gives away a pen.

I dont think neville has it in him anymore.

Rooney should just calm down, he has to be told he can't do it all himself, and just to let the chances come to him. He's working too hard and so putting too much pressure on himself to score, you can see the relief every time he puts one in the goal, it shouldn't be like that for a striker.

Giggs is too old to play a full game let alone a full campaign and Fletcher will never be a right winger, i thought we had already passed on this experiment Fergie?

Bizarre. give Simmo, Eagles, Martins and Campbell a chance for crying out loud.

U-Knight-Ed, Eagles is playing, not surprising you've not noticed though, he's been pretty ineffective.

Eagles is rubbish, he'll never be good for United.

U-Knight-Ed dont worry those players will play some part during pre-season, its a fergie promise <laugh>. Eagles started today and i dont think he has played that well to be honest, not even sure if its worth him staying at OT.

Prediction: Eagles out on loan for the season....again!

i think its time for gary neville to go or be a sub player for sure. brown is a better player (fact). hope we get berbatov or huntelaar to finnish off these easy chances.

252-4 in the cricket, and there was me looking for something good to happen in english sport today (apart from Hamilton claiming pole in germany)

i agree united-2-da-end this type of match is a clear indication that a berba/huntelaar is desperately needed, preference being the hunter, no where near as moody

Rooney's being an idiot. Lashing out in a pre-season friendly, giving the ref grief as well. Not needed.

vidic pocket, it was a cross by tevez from the edge of the box, with eagles on back post, he headered from about 4 yards and it deflected off a defender and went in.

tevez really made it.

Tevez crossed from the right side, far post header from eagles, who has sinced been subbed.

Utd need to be careful no good picking up yellow cards in pre-season

Now Tevez is doing the stupid stuff. Seems like there's a bad atmosphere brewing on the pitch.

- Especially after what happened in 06 with Rooney and Scholes. Does that rule still apply with red cards in pre season meaning a suspension for Premier League games?

oh thank god wayne is being subbed, looked odds on for a red card the way he was going
(which roll-over into the domestic season, if one is picked up)

we are playing too many long balls IMHO. we need to start moving the ball around more on the ground and work the defence through pressurising them, not just hitting it down the pitch and hoping a forward will pick it up.

if you mean next match then yes i agree, there is only 2 mins left in this one :)

Fletcher is basically useless really, I mean he took a ball on the burst, but had no pace or awareness to get through.

wow the players of Kaizer Chiefs looked really happy when they swapped shirts...nice to see everyone look so relaxed, very different to your average league game.

manufan87, yes i mean next game, although i realise this was a relatively meaningless game.

gary neville was not so good today. i was expecting it, but he has forgotten how to defend after a year out. hopefully he gets some solid training done soon. wes is our confirmed no. 1 RB.

chris eagles, despite the goal, was poor. sell him.

wazza and tev were very angry for a preseason friendly, but were mainly not given a choice through a lack of support because we were not playing wide enough.

i thought scholes was very good today, but it is obvious giggsy is not a LM anymore- no pace.

fletcher was awful, he would have done better against a massive club though, thats why he should remain with us.

foster should be given a run in the first team in a cup run, or at least become our no. 2 and loan out TK, IMO.

anyone disagree with my observations?

Next question, and apologies if someone's already asked this:

Why didn't Foster play at all?
