Injuries Piling Up Again For United

We'll never have a full squad at our disposal, it seems. We have three players who are definitely out of the rest of the season - Anderson, O'Shea and Owen - and there are always one or two players with niggles.

Right now Evans, Brown and Giggs are all out, with Rafael and Scholes adding to the casualty list this weekend. Even if Giggs recovers, as expected, we'll have a ridiculously thin squad for the visit of Liverpool.

And again, we have serious problems in defence: Rafael, Evans, Brown and O'Shea all look set to miss the Liverpool game so we'll be stuck with Gary Neville once again and though he's performed admirably in the last two games, I'm just unable to relax even for a second when he's on the pitch.

Pray to the gods that Rooney, Ferdinand, Vidic, Fletcher and Carrick will all remain fit because an injury to any of them would be disastrous. Not unexpected, though, unfortunately.

I feel a lot more comfortable defensively for these big games when gary's playing. He makes far less mistakes than rafa and rarely ever gets caught out of position. Also i think riera will be running at him, and he isn't really the fastest player in the premier league so he should do fine.

Gary has been good the last few games. Im comfortable with him or Rafael as I think the real problem will be the bi-annual cock up from Vidic and Evra gainst Torres. It looked like we were using Zamora to practice how to let him through on goal!

thats true, zamora looked a threat, but torres isnt up to par yet...on the other hand, liverpool always play like they've got something to prove against us...well, they do, but as long as they cant win anything it still doesnt mean anything...so, suggestions..why doesnt liverpool let us beat them the easy way, since nothing changes, and then we'll support them for 4th place or somth...maybe a man u tea-cup memorabilia? they can add the cup to their trophy case or smth? that sounds like a good deal to me. liverpool get a cup, rafa keeps his job, and we get the prem.

One of the reasons I'm starting to think we might just miss out on winning the league is that we're coming up against teams who REALLY, REALLY want to beat us. Us not winning the league is the biggest prize liverpool could win this season, City and Chelsea will also be desperate to put one over on us.
