'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rio Will Play In Rome - Really, He Will!

Though earlier this week we heard that Rio Ferdinand might even face Wigan, now it's certain that he's still not fit and is unavailable against Arsenal. Which, of course, raises question marks about whether he'll be fit for the Champions League final on May 27.

'We would like to have better news on Ferdinand,' Sir Alex said.

'It is one of those calf niggles that usually take ten days to two weeks. Other than his work in the gymnasium he is not training. He won't play tomorrow but he should be fit for next Sunday's game at Hull City and I am sure he will be available for the final.'

All these niggling injuries... it's beginning to look like another Owen Hargreaves or Gary Neville. I hope I'm wrong of course: even though Jonny Evans has come on leaps and bounds this season, it'd be hardly great news if we were forced to field him against Barcelona...

To be fair, our defence will still be stronger than Barca's. And chelsea played Beletti (i think) in defence in the first leg and didn't concede. Obviously want Ferdinand to be fit, but as long as Vidic is there we can cope. Evans is fine and hopefully he won't have so many nerves (can work either way). Still would be a loss.
