Man Utd v Barnet, 20:00 kickoff
Probably the biggest game for Barnet since our first promotion to the football league at the start of the 1990s. Sadly Alex Ferguson has decided to hand squad numbers to five previously unpicked reserves, suggesting that only a few first teamers will be out there. On the other hand, Saha has been dropped, so clearly they're taking the game seriously. The charming pair of Rooney and Ronaldo will reportedly be starting on the bench in case of any emergency.
Good to see encouragement from ex-Barnet manager and Man Utd player Barry Fry: "United, 7–0!". I guess at this point I'm supposed to hope for any scoreline that looks respectable. Bollocks to that, I want us to try and hammer them.
