United's Injury Problems Are Beyond Belief Now

United's Injury Problems Are Beyond Belief Now

First the good news: our midfielders are fit. The bad news: 13 of them travelled to Germany tonight in a squad of 19 as we are desperately stretched in every other area of the field.

Edwin van der Sar is still struggling with a knee injury, Owen Hargreaves is still not back from his protective cocoon, we have 8 defenders out and now even Rooney and Berbatov are doubtful for Saturday's game against Aston Villa.

We could make up a pretty good team out of all the injured players though the midfield would seem somewhat makeshift:

Van der Sar - Brown, Evans, Vidic, O'Shea - Rafael, Ferdinand, Hargreaves, Fabio - Rooney, Berbatov

Out of these, Rooney and Berbatov have a chance of making it for Saturday, Evans and O'Shea are out until the New Year, Brown is still fighting to be available against Villa but his prospects aren't looking rosy. Fabio and Rafael won't be back for Saturday and there's still no timescale on either Ferdinand or Hargreaves. Vidic is likely to recover from flu in time to play against Villa.

Tonight? We should avoid getting embarassed, anything else is a bonus with such a depleted squad...

You certainly do have rather a lot of injuries at the moment Have you cut back on the medical/physio's department or something? Suspect Wolfsburg will beat you tonight and you'll end up with a tough draw in the knock out stages. But for once you'll have a pretty damned good excuse for not playing well!
