Carrick Back Against His Old Club - Huge Boost

United stumbled a little at Goodison Park and it is obvious that the team is still not in top gear. But we're getting there and the imminent return of Michael Carrick is also a huge boost.

The midfielder suffered injuries against Newcastle then at Anfield, the latter ruling him out for six weeks. Now he's been training for more than a week and he's approaching full fitness so Sir Alex takes him into consideration for tomorrow night's game against West Ham United.

Carrick's last United goal came against West Ham during the 4-1 drubbing back in May and he excelled that day. Hopefully he'll do so again as it is a fit and in-form Carrick what we really lack in the engine room.

Fletcher held his own in central midfield but neither of his partners was consistent enough: Giggs fades after 45 minutes (or comes alive only in the second half as against West Brom), Anderson is improving after stuttering early season form but is still inconsistent so we need the experience, reliability and guile of Carrick.

FANTASTIC, ABSOLUTELY SMASHING! He is the one player we are currently missing the most IMO. We have an amazing array of forwards but no one to supply them with those killer passes. Welcome back Carrick!
