Fergie Trusts The Youngsters

Fergie Trusts The Youngsters

Good news for Hull City fans: Fergie hinted that he might play a side similar to the one that got defeated on penalties in the FA Cup semi-final - not that it's any surprise to anyone, given the proximity of the Rome final.

Of course it's been in the centre of attention throughout the week, the debate raging around whether we've got a moral obligation to field our full-strength side. The interesting thing is that the clubs in danger of relegation did not protest at all: indeed, Alan Shearer said that Fergie had the right to put out any team he wanted and he was certain we would go for the win.

'If I can trust them in a semi-final, why not trust them in the final league match when we have already won the title?' Sir Alex asked.

'Our league has the best integrity in the world. We'll play a part in that on Sunday. We'll go to win. Nobody should worry about that.'

Nobody does, apart from the press who seem intent on stirring up controversy even though most fans agree that United must prioritise their own interests and even Richard Scudamore defended our right to field a 'weakened team' - which, as many pointed out, might actually be stronger as it will be full of hungry young players as opposed to unmotivated stars whose priority would be to avoid injury or fatigue before the Champions League final.

Good for him! If Boro and Toons sue, it'll be a bigger farce then the Tevez affair! - Then again, apparently UEFA are opening up the "Mikel transfer" again! Uh-oh, trouble for both of us LOL!
