United - Playing Chelsea Again!

United - Playing Chelsea Again!

Despite dipping out on a record fourth consecutive Premier League title and watching on as our closest rivals, Chelsea, went on to complete the Double, Manchester United will still contest the Community Shield.

The FA has decreed that United, and not the losing FA Cup Finalists, Portsmouth, will compete in the 2010/2011 season curtain raiser.

Participating gives us the chance to gain revenge for our loss last August. In the 2009 Community Shield, United took the lead through Nani but could do nothing about Chelsea scoring through Carvalho and Lampard with Rooney snatching an injury time equaliser.

In the resulting penalty shoot-out United had a bit of a disaster with only Carrick scoring as Chelsea romped home 4-1 with Lampard, Ballack, Drogba and Kalou all scoring.

The fixture though, if Sir Alex sticks to his guns, could see united take to the Wembley pitch without several key players. Sir Alex has promised those who participate in the latter stages of the World Cup a full twenty-eight days leave before resuming competitive action.

But, revenge is a dish best served up on Sunday August 8th is it not!

A win for us gives us 4th consecutive win against you. I think last last season the Community shield win gave us the perfect kick start to the season and it gave us that extra mental edge over Manu. So, this can not be taken lightly. Could be another cracker.

Its kind of weird to anticipate a United v Chelsea match where you genuinely have no idea who will be in either team. Rio, Evra, Carrick, Rooney, Nani, Vidic, Foster, Tosic, De Laet, Diouf, Fabio, Macheda, Welbeck, Cleverly, Gibson, Anderson, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Carvalho, A.Cole, Ferreira, Deco, Belletti, Kalou, Drogba, Anelka, Stoch, Essien could all be missing for a variety of reasons and thats without considering potential signings like Benayoun, Toure, Chiellini, SIlva or players like Ballack and Joe cole swapping sides!

Oh well, as long as the ones in red beat the ones in blue - I'll be happy!

Well if it means national team regulars are out Chelsea dont have many options with their poor youth system an all.

that'd be the poor youth system that won the FA Youth Cup last season!

TheFamousNo7: Chelsea don't have any youth...Sam Hutchinson, Gael Kakuta, Fabio Borini, Daniel Sturridge, Gokhan Tore, Sala, and as Merlin mentioned pretty much the entire team that won the FA youth cup would be guaranteed starters at other clubs, so when he have experienced players out then these guys go hell for leather to try and crack the first team. If you need proof then check Youtube for Kakuta's debut/highlights and check for Sam Hutchinson's end of season games for us to name but a few. Also, Mcechran will be a big thing in a few years too... ;-)

I could name you all, but it'd be a waste of my time.
