Paul Scholes

Number 9 on my list

1. Paul Pogba, Tom Cleverley or Ravel Morrison to step up to the plate and be the next big thing off the Old Trafford talent conveyor belt.
2. Berbatov in a United shirt. Fergie, please don’t let him go. He’s too classy on the ball and too creative to see him go elsewhere.
3. De Gea be like Van der Saar and not Taibi/Bosnich/Barthez
4. Man City to finish below fourth.
5. Tottenham to finish in the top four.
6. Ashley Young to offer us a threat from set pieces and to score fifteen or more goals (not all from free kicks!)
7. Rooney’s hair in his eyes.
8. Alex Ferguson to go a whole season without being banned from the touchline.
9. Paul Scholes on the touchline.
10. Ronaldo to state his desire to come back to Old Trafford after a largely unsuccessful spell at the Bernabeu.
11. Rafael and Fabio to play on opposite flanks to each other in the same fixture.
12. Phil Jones to have half as much success in his debut season as Chris Smalling.
13. Tevez in Brazil, Argentina, Italy… anywhere other than the Etihad Stadium!
14. Man. City to be banned from Europe for failing the UEFA money rules.
15. A 1-0, Champions’ League semi-final United win at the Nou Camp.
16. A 2-0 Champions’ League final United win against Chelsea.
17. Rooney, Berbatov, Nani, Young and Hernandez to start the same fixture.
18. Liverpool to finish an agonisingly close second in the league, on goal difference.
19. United to win the twentieth league title with a goal difference bettering Liverpool’s by nineteen.

    #17 – So how would that work? With Berbatov and Rooney converted into xavi/iniesta style midfielders? Its crazy… but it might just work!
