The FA cup is gone now. We got knocked out and there are a lot of differing views about team selection, performance and priorities. But there are now two MASSIVE games coming up. These games would be massive regardless of the man utd result.

Lets move on people.

A clean sheet is needed for a start. Hopefully (Please God) Clichy and sagna will be available. And even though Toure seems like his minds still in Ghana Im sure he will perform in this game.

1-0 will do me fine

Can only move on, but is only one way to win back some pride from that loss, and that's to beat Man Utd when we return to Old Trafford in the league. That's the game that matters more than anything this season.

We need a 2 goal lead and a clean sheet going into Milan.

Defence cant switch off.

I'd rather Senderos plays instead of Toure as toure really seems to be struggling.

pace wise we need toure because kaka and pato are fast players

but if we dominate the midfield and hope cesc, who shows up in big games unlike ronaldo, has a blinder then we will win

I wouldn't like to see kaka running at senderos! I'd have to close my eyes! I honestly feel toure gallas and flam can protect keep them out.

I can see AW going with a 4-5-1 formation with eduardo on he left. He'll probably go with Gilberto Cesc and Flamini in the middle with hleb on the left.

Gilberto is more equiped to handle this game, ac milan play slower than PL teams.

If we play 4-5-1 at home against Milan, their defence will overwhlem our single striker and we are likely looking at a 0-0 game. I will place my faith in Sendoros. He might be slower than Kolo but Kolo's mind is not in it after the ANC. Plus he might pop up with a headed goal from our setpiece. Cesc and Flamini will need to be very discipline to shadow Kaka whenever we do not have the ball. Forget about Gilberto. He shud be used as a sub. His mind is already made up to leave Arsenal this summer so don't expect him to throw his body and limps into the fray. Hopefully we have Rosicky back on the left.

Maybe RVP can be on the bench?

AC's midfield will be compact with Gattuso, Pirlo, Seedof and maybe ambrosini. We may need more than 2 players in there. Clichy and hopefully sagna or eboue can exploit the wings.

Any news on the injuries?
