Manchester United vs The Birmingham Porn Merchants – Pre Match Analysis

August 14, 2009

utd rev birmingham

Yes it is here!!!

Bryan Ferry and his Roxy Music may well have proclaimed that “Love is the Drug” but we all know that he was deluded, and that the only tangible drug for all of us is footsoccerball.

Much has been made of United’s lack of big name signings but whats been going on at their first opponents? Birmingham have once again beaten and thrashed their way out of The Championship, this time with a last day win securing their top flight status. Brum manager Alex McLeish faces major selection problems ahead of game. Defenders Liam Ridgewell, Martin Taylor, Scott Dann, Giovanny Espinoza and David Murphy are all unavailable. Midfielder Lee Bowyer is suspended (probably the first of many this season) while serial “different week, different WAG on arm” striker Marcus Bent is sidelined by a hamstring problem (or should that be groin?). But new signings Joe Hart, Roger Johnson, Gregory Vignal and Barry Ferguson will all make their debuts. Fellow new addition, striker Christian Benitez, could be on the bench as he continues his recovery from shoulder surgery.

United also have their injury doubts with Jonny Evans and Rio Ferdinand now nursing injuries. Of Rio’s bad back, Sir Alex suggested that it was caused by “him sitting awkward on the plane journey home from the England match” Is that the plane journey that takes about 70 minutes from the Netherlands? Or was the game played in China and i just didn’t realise? Poor Rio. Anyhow, the manager expects him to be fit. Wes Brown is set to be recalled after a Pre Season injury and Gary Neville may make the bench. Vidic is ruled out, as he is still on a secret covert mission for the Serbian version of the SAS. The manager has also confirmed today that Ben Foster is likely to return from his latest injury, and that he can indeed, actually kick a ball straight.

United (Probable, 4-4-2): Foster; O’Shea, Ferdinand, Brown, Evra; Park, Fletcher, Carrick, Valencia; Rooney, Berbatov

Referee: Lee Mason

BRITAIN SOCCER

To avoid future bad backs caused by airplane travel, Rio learns to fly by himself.
