Giggs Out - Time For Anderson To Return

Ryan Giggs will miss the Champions League game at AC Milan and the Carling Cup final against Aston Villa after he fractured his right arm during the league game at Villa Park on Wednesday.

He'll be out for a month which is a huge loss, especially with Anderson in the wilderness for disciplinary reasons. However, it's clear that the time has come for his exile to end. I expect Fergie to start with Fletcher, Carrick and Scholes in central midfield at the San Siro which means that there will be one central midfielder on the bench - and that is Darron Gibson whom I would not trust on such an occasion.

Quite simply, principles must be put aside now. Paul Scholes is always liable to pick up unnecessary yellow cards and even if he does not, he may simply tire quicker than what's good for the team. In such a case we could have brought on Giggs but now we would have to change the formation as things stand or trust Darron Gibson who never played in a Champions League knockout game before and who would be up against the likes of Pirlo, Seedorf (if fit), Gattuso and Ambrosini.

So Anderson must be on the bench at least because we need him, as simple as that. Get well soon, Ryan, by the way.

Anderson should be on the bench, I do rate Gibson but the Milan game is too big for him at the moment. I really think Berbatov should play in that game but we'll see Nani Valencia Fletcher Carrick and Scholes in midfield with Rooney up front. It's about time we knock Milan out.

Anderson is being wasted its such a shame what has happened to him, hopefully he can do a Nani and try to win back fergie and the fans.
