A silver lining to the doom and gloom of yesterday’s humiliation: Edwin van der Sar’s wife is recovering well from brain haemorrhage and there will be no long-term effects for her. It is wonderful news and it also means that Edwin is returning to Old Trafford this week.

He’s had a fair few injury problems this season and though Kuszczak performed well enough in his absence, his leadership and presence has been sorely missed. It would be about time that we had a settled back five, with Edwin marshalling Ferdinand and Vidic ahead of him. But I’m getting carried away by false hopes…

But the most important thing is that Annemarie is OK – I guess her husband is hugely relieved.
