Sir Alex Ferguson believes there will be no problem with Wayne Rooney tonight. Wayne, like Carlos Tevez and Patrice Evra, is only one booking away from missing the final which means he's got to be cautious.
'I don't need to address it with Wayne,' Sir Alex said.
'He knows the circumstances. I don't need to spell it out to him. He is a mature young man. He understands it perfectly well.
'He needs to be disciplined, but most of the time he is that way.'
In Europe he's been amazingly disciplined ever since his sending off at Villarreal and though I won't deny that the red mist sometimes clouds his brain, it mostly happens when the opposition is frustrating the life out of our attack. Arsenal are unlikely to do that... the only things he needs to avoid are rash tackles because he'll hardly have to make a last-ditch challenge to deny Arsenal...
Patrice Evra, who will be on the same flank with Rooney, is also in danger and with Walcott against him, it is conceivable that they will target him, knowing he would loathe to pick up a yellow card. Evra is not a dirty player by any means, hopefully won't be forced to commit desperate fouls.
Fergie also said that Italian referee Roberto Rosetti will be sympathetic with the case of players who, because of three bookings during the whole competition, could be forced to miss the final. Hopefully it is so but even better would be if there was no need for his sympathy.
Oh, and I hope we'll make the final. If not, the whole card stuff will be pretty irrelevant...
