      If we are truly title challengers (dare I say, champions in waiting) then this is a game we should and will have to win.

      3-1 in our favor, Sturridge, Suarez and Sterling to score.

      What is it now, 7/8 games without victory that Webb has refereed us in and failed to give 2 massive and very easy penalty decisions. 1 against Chelsea and 1 against Arsenal. The first would probably have earnt us a point meaning we'd only be a point behind Chelsea now and the other would have given us a replay in the FA Cup at home to Arsenal who we would have battered.

      The guy is a complete and utter joke

      Howard Webb or no Howard Webb, we must so up our game such that it becomes so difficult for Webb to impact the game in Scum's favour.

      I thought this stat was true until I saw that he refereed our 3-1 victory away to Sunderland at the end of September.

      Cant be true can it?

      If I was BR I would be putting pressure on Webb way before the game about his previous decisions and how he hopes he has a better game this time around.

      nothing confirmed.  If people read that they'll be flying pigs on twitter or a comment on facebook they'd believe it. It's getting ridiculous.  It was just one user saying he read it on Facebook and the forum went nutz about it. Oh yes Facebook,  I forgot they released the information even before premier league. It's those psychic people mark zukerburg or whatever his name is keeps employing!

      We can beat the twelve men of Moysechester United no problem. The twelfth man being Webb (if appointed) not the scum on the Stretford end.

      This is our season boys and girls, lets do the job. Our forward line is going to rip them a new one.

      Would love to see Luis absolutely destroy Evra.
      C'mon the Redmen, cant wait, get in.

      Think Luis will be up for this one like no other match in his career, he's probably thinking it could be the last time he could get one over Evra with rumours of him leaving united next season. I hope the accession doesn't get to our players and they bottle it because united and they're fans are going to be up for thus match to stop us challenging for the title. I hope we don't get any stupid injurys from the internationals but I've got a bad feeling with our English players, Daniel sturridge imparticular.

      Think we'll go for our counterattacking strategy, if they play Rooney, RVP, Mata, Januzaj all at the start (which they probably will) only Rooney will track back, and he'll tire as he's not the example of a natural athlete (Whiskey nose said he needed to train more to keep him in shape than the average player). They'll all get forward, put pressure on Carrick and Fletcher (or whoever plays out of Jones, Fellaini) who are not the quickest. Then we can attack an ageing or inexperienced backline depending on who they play. SASAS (Sterling as well) will be too much to handle. As long as we don't give RVP, Rooney or Mata time and space then I don't think we'll suffer too much. Januzaj still has to convince me that he's a talent.

      Just smash the tw*ts and show we are well and truly on our way to being back on our f**king perch!

      No doubt they'll raise their game as its their cup final isn't it, very much like the entire 70's and 80's  ;)

      Webb is not officiating in this game. He may well be chosen as the ref, but at the minute, the officials for this fixture haven't been chosen.

      Anyway, even if he is the ref I think it could work in our favour. Quite often after a ref comes under heavy scrutiny from one set of fans and the media report on it, he makes sure he doesn't do it again in the next game to ensure he doesn't look biased.

      This is the first of 10 cup finals we have between now and the end of the season. We have plenty of time to prepare, and beating Southampton 3-0 away before the break was perfect preparation. I say we stick with the same team, maybe put Sterling back in ahead of Allen.

      Still 11 days away, so i'll leave it a bit before any thoughts on how this game will go. There may be injuries between now and then.

      I genuinely think this is all just made up rumour because the FA will only make their decisions on next weeks games on Monday. There's no way Webb can be appointed for a match beyond the initial match he is refereeing this weekend. But I wouldn't be surprised if this pus filled bollock did referee the match.

      Its how long hell give them most of the game that worries me mate. Plus why does he need to look at Stevie and Johnno? Delighted for Raheem and Hendo but hope they get whipped off at half time!

      Not for us that's for sure, mate we are the ones sat second not them KUNTS,
      Tricky ? yeah only for them,

      Tell ya what mate , we 're going to go there and smash the f**k out of them, I can honestly see us dishing out their heaviest home defeat for f***in decades,
      Gollum has to gamble ; does he field a full strength side ahead of their most important game of their sh*t season, or
      Field a weakened side and risk total humiliation against your fiercest rivals. ?
      What's it to be Moysey ?

      What was it. 'Newt' said in  'Aliens'....
       'It WON'T Make Any Difference'

      I want to see us f***in hammer these KUNTS into submission, I want to see the embarrassment on the face if tha arrogant kunt bacon face, I want us to send a message to their inbred scummy fans that WE are back and that They are about to suffer decades of a Liverpool FC domination,

      F**kin tricky, don't make me f***in laugh, just sit back relax and watch how we destroy 'the chosen one' & the hasbeens,

      TRICKY ?   My Arse  !

      Once we dont change our style I cant see us not wining this. Smalling looked poo last night. Vidic and Ferdinand are finished no pace to deal with our front 3. Be interesting to see if he goes with Valencia at right back but if he does Raheem has shown hes well capable of back tracking. Basically I cant see tehre back 4 coping with our front 3.

      Midfield again if our 3 play to there set plan we have nothing to fear from there midfield.

      Our back 4 need a monster game though on the off chance there front 3/4 click. I would hope Sakho is fit butt hen must ask would we be better going with Skrtel and Agger who have bundles of experience playing at old trafford?

      So basically I think 2 things are vital, we stick to our attacking mindset and our back 4 dont act the tit

      I want us to utterly destroy them. We tonked them 4-1 at OT back in 2009, and we should be going for better than that. They haven't got half the squad they had then, and I'd rate our attack as better than then.

      Priority for United should be to overcome a two goal deficit to Olynpiarkos, which is more than possible. They may be minor match preparation training for us, but you could imagine that most of their eggs are in the champions league. Preparing to dismantle our season is too risky for them, as they'll also have Spurs and Everton to overtake to ensure that fourth spot. If they lose, their domestic campaign will be pretty meaningless so they almost have ti focus solely on the champions league.

      Us, on the other hand, only have the domestic campaign to worry about. Rodgers is smarter than Moyes and should set us out to go all guns blazing. One thing that use to disappoint me about benitez in the past was his negative set up in these big games, opting for safety first. If recent history is anything to go by, Rodgers will keep loyal to his preferred fluid 4-3-3 formation and take the game to the mancs.

      If we stay composed, play to our own strengths and the referee remains impartial, then I can't see any other result than an away victory.

      Come on you redmen!
