    They're waiting to see if Rooney's fit.

    They need a referee they can trust to provide them with the "right and proper" result. Probably having a whip round in the office to pay for Twattenberg's one last hurrah before he goes to Saudi.

    Doubt it, he refereed his first game since the Saudi move was confirmed at the weekend, definitely on the naughty step. Can't see him being given the derby. It'll be Atkinson, he seems to be top ref in Riley's books at the moment.

    Take a wild guess.......
    Bearing in mind what a team of gigantic cloggers the rags are, I should think Riley will be looking to hand the gig to someone genetically incapable of awarding City a penalty, namely Michael Oliver. Plus the last time he reffed a Trafford Town match he sent Herrera off, so a fairly safe bet that he would not wish to take such action again regardless of the provocation!

    Oliver probably isn't a bad shout, gives Maureen something to whine about before the game while he'll be under a lot of pressure after the last time. Still reckon it'll be Atkinson though.

    I think Oliver is scheduled to referee on Tuesday or Wednesday

    Oliver's only on on Saturday so far.
    Clattenburg or Atkinson seem likely, on the assumption City wouldn't have Pawson again so soon after Sunday. They've had a few this season where a ref has done both fixtures between clubs.

    If i was having a quid on it I'd be going on Oliver. Outsider Blind Pew Marriner.

    Alty Taylor us too obvious, Moss etc is that poor he couldn't be gauenteed to get the job done.

    I think it'll be Atkinson.
    I don't think Taylor hasn't been risked/inflicted on City since the Chelsea debacle.
