On Tuesday, Roma comes to OT again and we’ll have another chance to get in our rhythm, hopefully scoring more goals this time. Last season we’ve beaten Roma 7-1 in the replay of the UCL quarter finals, but chances that we’ll repeat this royal beating are rather slim. Not because we don’t have the talent to so, but more because those monster scores are rather exceptional and repeating that performance would be a unique performance.
After VDS’s toe injury, SAF faces other defensive problems, with both Vidic and Brown having missed today’s training session. Both defenders received a knock and Fergie mentioned Pique would be the obvious replacement for Vidic or Brown.
Last weekend, our Boss hinted at youngsters being allowed to leave OT and pick up match rhythm. The poor performance of our talented junior squad against Coventry resulted in Ferguson stating that Pique and Danny Simpson could be useful for the first squad. What does this mean for Dong, Evans, Eagles (who played several times already this season) and Lee Martin?
