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

United Struggling To Get 11 Men Fit For Saturday

Fergie's facing one of the nastier selection headaches ahead of the visit of Blackburn: United will miss some fairly important players.

Darren Fletcher, Danny Welbeck, Ji-sung Park and Gary Neville are all out while Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Ryan Giggs are major doubts. By all probability, the team sent out won't resemble our strongest line-up...

There are good news though: Darren Fletcher, whose absence was so crucial at Anfield, is back in training and looks certain to be fit for the game at Stamford Bridge next weekend - which we might even surrender right now if he's not gonna make it.

Vidic's problem is more worrying: apparently, he's been sent to a specialist to determine the root of the calf problem that's been troubling him for weeks now. With Rio Ferdinand, we can hardly be surprised: in the last 12 months he spent more time on the treatment table than on the pitch. Almost.

Regardless, I can't imagine you'll have much trouble picking up three points.

Blackburn are no pushovers and might give us a run for our money if we don't stamp our authority and take our chances when we get them.

I think Rio will be fine and if Fletcher isn't fit it should be Carrick and Anderson in midfield. The more games Evans gets the better, and Brown needs football as well so we should be able to cope. On a side note I'd like to pay tribute to Henrik Larsson after retiring the other day, he may have only scored 3 goals in his time for us but I really think he helped Rooney and Ronaldo's game which helped us push on for the title in 2007 and the success we had thereafter.

It would be a disaster of epic proportions if you failed to beat Blackburn at home. Can't see you losing though.

Good news for us.. but you can still put out a strong side... Van Der Saah, O'Shea, Brown, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Anderson, Nani, Rooney, Berbatov/Owen!! Enough to beat us if you play how you can, but on recent performances, we might have an outside chance of nicking a point.

ps. Good luck for the rest of the season (appart from against us of course), hoping you win the title ahead of lpool again... cheers R23
