Very basic notes, written Friday morning ....


I like United today, they will have another massive holiday crowd to cheer them on, some 9,000 + and the U's will want to give them some positive mental memories for the summer, with Oxford looking to be a very big player at this level next season. They have already sold 3,000 season tickets for the next campaign and this club will not be hanging around too much longer in League 2. Chesterfield are seven points clear of the pack and have a big game at home to second placed Bury on monday, if they could choose one of these two matches to win, it would be the home fixture and in what will be very hot conditions, we might see them reserve a little energy, especially if they fall behind. United won the reverse fixture 2-1 so also a chance for a famous double over the best team in the division.

Oxford United level ball 1.90.


Frankfurt are four points clear of the drop zone and would like something from this game, but it is perhaps not essential and for Bayern, it could be the difference between Europa and Champions League and only one is acceptable for the Bavarian giant. Hannover went back above them into third with a win at Freiburg last night and anything less than three points for Bayern, will leave matters outside of their own control. The visitors will be buoyed by the five goals they put past Leverkusen last week and by the return to full training of Badstuber and Schweinstiger yesterday and both should take some part. Frankfurt have won just one home start in nine and not kept a clean sheet in five, goals have been a real problem all season for the Bundesliga's lowest ( 29) scorers and if Bayern get their noses in front they could/should run away with this.

Bayern Munich -1 ball 1.87.

Good Luck.
