Its been a tough week to bear without club football, but finally we're only two days away from action.
Lets just take a look into the upcoming match between Bolton and Manchester UNITED! Its been a long time since I've said that........UNITED! Feels good.
Now before I begin, nobody in the world is going to tell me Bolton are going to give a tough fight to the Red Devils this Saturday. Rather, United themselves are going to have to fight it out to get their heads straight.
After a seriously disappointing draw against Sunderland (but Foster was elbowed) and the ongoing debate about Sir Alex Ferguson being a bully, United really have to pull their socks up.
Their passing was absolutely dreadful to say the least last week and that normal flow of movement had stumbled. But after watching the match, I think I realised what was missing there.
Ryan Giggs has been instrumental in the team's tourney so far and has been getting in those crosses with superb results. His passing has been sublime and has already chipped in with a couple of goals.
With everyone talking about Rooney stepping up and taking over the reins from Ronaldo, Giggs has been, to say the least, phenomenal!
You don't see too many 36 year olds running up and down a football field like that. Infact, you don't see too many 20 year olds do the same.
Along with the 'Giggs Effect', Anderson has been a revelation. After disappointing us last season, he has turned over a new leaf and begun pulling the strings in the middle of the park.
Rooney seems to lose and gain his form whenever he likes. Hopefully he is in a good mood on Saturday.
Berbatov is beginning to find his footing. Easily the best player last Saturday and to top that, he just scored a hattrick for Bulgaria.
Valencia has been a massive disappointment. I didn't expect him to come and start scoring goals straight away but he just doesn't look United for me. Nani has also been lacklustre but he has shown flashes of brilliance.
The rest of midfield has been solid apart from Scholesy who seems to have gotten a strong affinity for cards.
Defence continues to be a bit of a worry, Evra being the only one to stand up and take charge. Hopefully, Van Der Sar should be back between the sticks.
Bolton have no chance in hell. United have every chance in hell to make this game turn into hell but with some good performances in the Cup qualifiers and friendlies as well as Ferguson's growing anger.
I believe, the score United 3 Bolton 0 with the help of Rooney, Berba and Owen. They will of coursel be helped by Sir..sorry, too early for that..Ryan Giggs
