Paul Ince will make an earlier than expected return to Old Trafford if he’s not fired in the next two weeks as his Blackburn team has been paired with Manchester United in the Carling Cup.

Of course we’ve already met the former fan favourite’s current team and outclassed them at Ewood Park, with the 2-0 scoreline distinctly flattering them. This time they will probably face our kids but the likes of Welbeck, Rafael and Possebon are unlikely to be overawed by Rovers…

The game will be played at Old Trafford in the week commencing December 1. The bookies now have United as favourites for the Carling Cup and it would be nice to win it – a trophy never goes amiss, even if it’s only the least prestigious and important of all.
