Looking forward to this - can't beat a cup final. Nerves and excitement rolled into one.

It'll be interesting to see what changes Jose will make with the apparent loss of MickyT and Carrick

I'd go for this :-

---------------------DDG-------------------
Valencia------Bailly------Smalling------Blind
-----------------Herrera----Pogba----------------
Rashford-----------Mata-------------Martial
----------------------Zlatan-------------------------

Although I think Jose will put Mata out right and play Fellaini in the CM.

Seems the best possible lineup atm. However, I'd go for Young instead of Blind.

I considered Young as LB but unsure if its a good idea for two 'wingers' to be playing the full back roles - Blind has the intelligence.

How about Young at RW? great work rate and can deliver a decent cross

@Giants14 - Your line up wouldn't be too bad for any game. I have a notion that Mourinho will play Lindgard instead of Rashford.

Just got this funny feeling that Mourinho will throw Luke Shaw in against his former club on Sunday with sink or swin son ringing in his ears.

Lingard has been great at Wembley in the 2 previous occasions but feel he's been really poor this season - against Blackburn he should be at the level that he is causing them a lot of trouble but he was really bad.

I think my forward line up will be too much for Jose - he likes control espically in a game known for small margins - I feel Fellaini will probably start

Come kick-off Soton won't have kicked a ball in anger for 15 days, they might start fresher but it'll be telling as the game goes on, that plus we've got far better players, and Manager

They haven't conceded a goal getting to Wembley, but history tells us that the wheels normally fall off come the Final

Oh yeah, and we still owe then for 76

First major United game I can remember was the 1976 FA cup final when we were hot favourites to beat an inferior (2nd tier) Soton. That didnt end well at all! :cry:

Read an amazing fact in the paper yesterday, apparently Mourinho has never lost a League Cup tie in "normal" time. The only times he hasnt won the trophy in England, his sides lost 2 x penalty shoot-outs and 1 game in extra-time!!!

'76 is such a hard memory. I remember crying when we lost, I was still a kid. I lived in Wembley at the time and I remember seeing many distraught fans who were completely crushed at the outcome.

Anway today is not about revenge it is a bout being confident and playing to our strengths, if we do that we will fight and we will win.

that would be a good lineup but i have a feeling he might play Mata on the wing and Lingard in the middle again.

I get the impression that regardless where Mata lines up he plays wherever he wants.

hehe he does play on the inside a lot but the problem is he still has to track back to defence on the wing from the inside. and that limits him imo
