The virus that laid Darren Fletcher low and saw him reduced to the almost gaunt like figure that turned out for us against Blackpool last weekend, could have another ramification.

It`s being reported, and also looking increasingly likely, that Darren will be excluded for the starting eleven at Wembley on Saturday.

If that is the case it will give Darren an unwanted hat-trick.

The midfielder has already missed two Champions League finals after being suspended for the clash with Barcelona in 2009 and was an unused substitute back in 2008 against Chelsea.

Darren, obviously aware that regaining his place after his illness was going to be difficult, has spoken to the media about the difficulty he faces getting a starting berth, remarking to the media,

“It`s not for me to decide. All you can do is do your best.”

“The lads who have got us there have done really well, so the manager has a lot of decisions to make.”


To miss three Champions League Finals after being such an influential part of our midfield, is cruel but we`re sure Darren will bounce back and we`ll leave the final word on the subject to Sir Alex Ferguson`s assistant, Mike Phelan who, whilst talking with the media, has remarked,

“Darren Fletcher up and running and firing on all cylinders gives us a hard job of picking the team. But it`s never easy to come back when you`ve been out for so long.”

Football can be such a cruel game!
