In an ideal world we`d be travelling the short distance to Eastlands, to take on Manchester City, with a fully fit squad.

But we alL know that injuries and suspensions take their toll as the season unfolds.

Tonight though, we`ve more than our fair share of concerns.

With Valencia out long term, Rooney on a USA sabbatical and Giggs struggling for fitness, we`re also trying to overcome a virus that has affected many, including Sir Alex, of our squad.

Speaking about the situation at his pre-match press conference, Sir Alex Ferguson had this to say,

“It is not a great position for us to be in. We are counting heads at the moment.”

“We`ve still got some players out with flu and we`ve sent some home.”

“But we have a strong squad. We just carry on.”

“I`ve no idea where I will begin with my team, no ideas at all. Hopefully by Wednesday we`ll be better.”

“But there seems to be a lingering aspect to this virus and there`s nothing we can do about it.”

“We`re getting there and I`m okay.”


Hardly ideal preparation but I reckon we`ll still be too strong for City!
