The Day Today and the Day After [Football]

David Moyes takes his "Moyes Boyes" to Old Trafford, just outside Manchester, to take on the reigning Champions of the Universe Manchester United in what some have described as "a game on the telly tomorrow."

Setanta have very generously decided to move the match from Monday to Saturday, bearing in mind that Everton have the small matter of the Merseyside Derby to worry about on Wednesday. Obviously Setanta's decision had nothing at all to do with them trying to get back into both clubs good books after ludicrously trying to move last year's clash to an 8pm kick-off on Christmas Eve.

Naturally Everton have injury worries ahead of the game, their only fit forward is now Victor Anichebe after Tim Cahill limped off against Arsenal with a foot injury. Which is just magnificent, Moyes' squad is getting smaller and smaller by the minute. Cahill is expected to be rested tomorrow to make sure he is ready for Wednesday night.

United meanwhile will still be without W**** R****y who is still injured and will miss the opportunity to kiss the corner flag right in front on the travelling support. So Gary Neville will have to fill in for him on that front. It is also not known who United have selected to be referee for tomorrow's match, an official announcement is expected closer to kick off. Maybe.

Also, Liverpool's match with Chelsea is expected to go ahead, despite the obvious mental health problems of Rafael Benitez. Benitez is reportedly refusing treatment for his condition on the grounds that it is "Not his fault, it's Mr. Ferguson's, that is fact."
