United Will Be Without Key Players Against Everton

United Will Be Without Key Players Against Everton

Wayne Rooney is reportedly desperate to play against his old club in the FA Cup semi-final tomorrow but he won't get the chance, not least because he's nursing a minor injury at the moment.

"When I pick my team, no matter what it is there will be critics voicing a concern about me not playing my strongest team," Fergie admitted.

"Not everyone agrees with changes. There are some supporters who want me to play my best team every game.

"That is impossible. If you look at Wednesday`s game you are off your head to think I could play the same team again."


Well, nothing surprising. There will be the usual voices about United's perceived lack of respect shown towards the FA Cup but then if we win there will be moans that the Big Four are dominating the cup... so doesn't matter.

Reports say that Van der Sar, Berbatov, Rooney, Ronaldo, Ferdinand and Anderson are all expected to miss the game... It will be an interesting line-up I expect. Something like this:

Foster - Brown (oh yes, he's set to return), Evans, Vidic, O'Shea - Park, Scholes, Gibson, Nani - Tevez, Welbeck or Macheda

Looks fun, doesn't it?

I emailed you a few questions last night, just wondered if you could possibly answer them before tomorrow? I'd be happy to return the favour.

I would just want to see rio there along side vidic,no disrespect to evans I like him a lot and its just wonderful to see the way he has blossemed but this is a one off game and even one mistake can cost us the cup.So although I can see where Sir Alex is coming from when he talks about refreshing the team we shouldn't make too many changes as we are up against a quality opposition.
