STAR PREVIEW: Wolfsburg v Man Utd
[dropcap]P[/dropcap]leasing result with the recommended DRAW at Goodison last night.
And now for the Champions League and I’m in a musical Mancunian mood.
On the ninth day of Christmas, Van Louis Gaal gave to me……
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids a Milking
7 Swans a Swimming
6 Geese a Laying
5 Golden Rings
4 Calling Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
and FFS not another 0-0 under the Christmas tree
FIVE of the last NINE games from Man U have resulted in 0-0 bore draws which is bordering on socially unacceptable.
Van Haal’s men have scored just one goal in their last 270 minutes of football. Bastian Schweinsteiger conspiring to spoil the perfect record of sheer unadulterated blankness with his goal against Leicester.
You certainly wouldn’t want the Xmas ex’s betting against them getting nil goals again. Even though Wolfsburg and Man U are first and second in Group B there is still plenty to play for – especially if PSV get, as expected, a win over CSKA Moscow which could leave them at the top of the table come 9.30pm.
Man U will again be without captain Wayne Rooney with an ankle injury and will also not have the services of Morgan Schneiderlin, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and midfielder Ander Herrera who are all injured.
