Jet-Lag Won't Hinder United At Stoke

Jet-Lag Won't Hinder United At Stoke

The different timezones and travelling between them won't cause problems for United as it is all planned in a very scientific manner.

United prepare for their first game in Japan, against Gamba Osaka but Fergie's real concern is not the Club World Championship but the bread and butter thing, the Premiership. We are almost certain to advance to the final which will be played on the 21st, five days before the Boxing Day clash at Stoke.

'It's never easy to acclimatise in such a short space of time - changing the body clock is the most difficult part of the trip.'

'We had the players up at 7am on Sunday morning and made sure they didn`t sleep until they were on the plane at night.

'That was the start of the process and we are working on the same principle through the week. We will then change back towards British time again on Thursday. It is the best way we can work it.

'It will give us the proper chance to acclimatise here and then to revert back to British time and the game against Stoke. I know we have got it right.'

Well the final is on the 21st and our next game on the 26th! So.....I fail to believe how people are claiming we'll be affected by going into this tournament!

Yeah, I'll bet. I take it that you havent travelled across the globe before, FU? Jet lag bogs you down, like feck.

Even if we get back on Tuesday after the Sunday final, we'll still be fine but lets wait and see. I for one have no worries.
