Ferdinand's Back Is The Problem

Sir Alex confirmed that doctors had identified the source of Rio Ferdinand's persistent injury problems: as suspected, it is his back that troubles him. However, reports that he'll be out until the New Year have been exaggerating.

'It is back related,' Fergie said.

'We are putting a timescale on it, but it is not a situation where we are saying it will be months, it might be a couple of weeks or it might be a few weeks but that is it.'

Hopefully it's true because another drawn out story in the Gary Neville/Hargreaves mould would be devastating...

Perhaps some better news today then. Rio is quality but i'm starting to think we really need a good, reliable, consistent, experienced CB.

Yeah, well, that sounds good but name one player who meets all those criteria and is available at a reasonable price...

Zae, you missed a letter out of the title: "Ferdinand is back, is the problem."

Wes has settled in pretty well and that performance of his in the chelsea game would have done him a world of good.
