No guys, we’ll never have a full squad available, even if you do not take the long-term injuries into account.

Tomorrow’s visit of managerless Newcastle seem to be an easy game at the first glance and at the second, too… so we might just survive somehow without Louis Saha and Owen Hargreaves…

Sir Alex said the it’s unbelievable how many trainig injuries our players suffered and I agree. The latest victims are Hargreaves and Saha, two players who spent more time in the treatment room than on the pitch this season.

Fergie confirmed that it’s unlikely that Hargreaves, struggling with a rib injury, will be risked. Saha, on the other hand, should be okay though his fitness will be assessed before the game.

Gary Neville felt his hamstring on Wednesday and that’s why he was substituted at half-time as the Reserves played out a 2-2 draw at Everton. He will not feature tomorrow – and it is definitely unpredictable whether he ever will…

No news on Carlos Tevez who missed the cup win at Villa due to a sore ankle so I expect him to be fit and ready, just as Wayne Rooney who changed the game at Villa Park after being brought on 20 minutes from time.
