Now am I missing something or there hasn’t been anything about why Nani and Anderson haven’t been involved in the United squad for the games at Stoke and against Middlesbrough? There was no word about them being injured, they’re not suspended and there’s just silence.

Neither of them set the world alight this season after promising debut campaigns but it seemed Fergie still trusts them, especially Anderson who started to show improving form as the season advanced. Surely Darron Gibson isn’t rated ahead of him?

It might be some disciplinary issue, and that would explain the silence of the club. For I don’t think they’ve been simply rested for two games – as I said, they are sure better options to have on the bench than Rodrigo Possebon and Darron Gibson, talented though both are… At least they haven’t been charged with anything… yet.
