Scholes Out - Crisis In Central Midfield Now

Paul Scholes suffered ligament damage in yesterday's 3-0 win over Aalborg. The extent of the injury is yet unknown but he could be out for six to eight weeks.

As Michael Carrick's recovery is still a good three weeks away and Owen Hargreaves' persistent knee problems keep him out of the team it's fair to say that our central midfield has become paper thin. Heck, even Possebon is injured, thanks to the Austrian madman.

The Giggs-O'Shea central midfield was good enough yesterday but it sends a shiver through me to imagine them at Ewood Park on Saturday. We have little choice but to play Anderson and Fletcher: the former is very far from his best form therefore we'll be a little bit lacking in midfield creativity, thus putting extra burden of Berbatov, Rooney, Ronaldo and maybe Tevez if he plays.

Hopefully Rooney's injury do not turn out to be serious: he's awaiting his scan results after feeling his ankle during the game. It looked like a precautionary measure to take him off and hope it's nothing more as he's in good form now: played brilliantly against Chelsea and scored in the next two games. Fingers crossed.

Oh dear shame

It's amazing how, with one injury, you can have a midfield crisis when you are the richest football club in the world and have the biggest squad in the Premiership...

Sinbad - is that a joke!? We might be rich but our transfer funds cant match Chelsea's or Citeh's! How can we have the biggest squad when you look at Chelsea squad. AND we have Hargo, Carrick and now Scholes out! How is that not a crisis. I'M SURE that was a joke!
