United Will Soon Have A Proper Midfield

Finally, it looks like we'll have a proper midfield again. Injury victims Owen Hargreaves and Michael Carrick are both close to return.

Carrick was hacked down at Anfield by Alonso and his subsequent injury has kept him out of the team ever since but he's close to recovery.

Hargreaves's case is even more simple: it's that bloody knee problem, his tendonitis which's troubling him again. Specialists say it's gonna disappear - I pray he'll still be a United footballer by then.

'We are expecting Michael to be available next week. He is almost back to full training now.

'Owen is much better and we will pencil him in for the West Brom game without question.'

These are the wise words of Sir Alex and it means that Darren Fletcher, despite his imperious form, will be relegated to the bench. Sad to see it but I'm very eager to get Carrick back: our distribution in midfield suffered in his absence with the rapidly diminishing effectiveness of Scholes.

Now I think United can really get back to their best.
