    Man Utd v Palace farce

    Mourinho has named 8 untried youngsters in his squad for Sunday's game at home to Palace.

    He says they are not ready for the Premier League but he has to save his first team players for the Europa Cup Final.

    Will it finish 4-4 at Old Trafford on Sunday after United 4-2 up with 10 mins to play?

    Would be annoying if we win and don't get above Palace, but United can't go higher or lower so it's a nothing game for him.

    We didn't play youngsters against Chelsea in 60-61, we played mostly reserves and they drew with them. In those days there were no substitutes, they played 42 league games scoring 102 goals and the cup games were played till some one won. In 60 /61 we got to the Semifinal of the League Cup (8 games) and FA cup (7 games) played in the Charity Shield and got to the Q/F (4games) of the European Cup. I make that 62 games. Now the training was nowhere near the level it is now. The pitches were boggy in wintertime.
    So if Man U can't manage 38 PL games with a squad twice the size of ours it makes you wonder who are the boys, certainly the Clarets were men in those days.

    Around then we played Chelsea five games till they beat us and three of them went to extra time.

    Oh the good old days.
