What Is Your View On Selection?

Sir Alex Ferguson says he is close to matching the striking competition that swept Manchester United to their unprecedented 1999 Treble triumph. But we want to know what YOU think.

As Luis Saha missed chance after chance against Newcastle, Ruud Van Nistelrooy was sat twiddling his thumbs.

Sir Alex Ferguson: 'We are fortunate with Wayne Rooney, Ruud, Louis Saha and young Giuseppe Rossi coming through, we are getting to the competition we have been looking for quite a while.

'If you go back to 1999, we had four outstanding strikers and when I picked the side for each game, the two I left out were disappointed.

'Yet they were always ready to come on and do something. Competition is a healthy state for the football club to be in.

'Louis' form has been great. He is quick and aggressive, is good in the air and has two great feet. Overall, you are looking at an outstanding centre-forward. He has overcome his injuries, he has been patient and now he is enjoying his football.

'We have eight consecutive wins at home now, which is more like the form we expect at Old Trafford.

'The players are enjoying their football and I just want them to take each game as it comes along and see where it takes us.'

Arsenal fan here (choose to ignore me if you wish!)... I think that Saha has been impressive from what I've seen of him. His link up play against Newcastle was impressive, however Van Nistelrooy is the better finisher. At the end of the day, I think this is a great squad decision by Fergie - Saha has done well to come back from a long injury lay off, and deserves a run. If he does start to flounder, Ruud will be more motivated than ever to keep his place in the team when he returns. It worked wonders for Jens Lehmann when he was dropped for Almunia!
