United - Fergie on Missing Trio!

United - Fergie on Missing Trio!

As we may have mentioned previously, in another article, dropping those two points to Glasgow Rangers, on our first group game, has put us slightly on the back-foot with regards to early qualification from our Champions League group.

The difficult trip to the Mestalla would have been a trip that Sir Alex would have pin-pointed as a place to attain three points in order to make a statement of intent. Unfortunately, our squad has arrived in Spain without three of the golden oldies that have previously tasted Champions League glory with United.

Two of those three, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney were, according to Sir Alex, easy choices to leave behind, Giggs has a thigh strain and Rooney has the weight of the world on his young shoulders. But, leaving Paul Scholes behind was, according to Sir Alex, a difficult decision with Sir Alex remarking at his pre-match press interview,

"You don`t want to lose your best players."

"It was a big decision to leave Scholes behind, but with Giggs and Rooney there was absolutely no choice. We`re going to have to adjust the team."


Could Sir Alex have made the wrong decision?

Would the experience Paul Scholes brings with him have been invaluable tonight?

We`d be interested to hear your thoughts!

shame - Scholes and Giggs probably get cheap travel insurance through Saga!

I thought the passing was quite sloppy at time from the midfield, par Anderson. Scholes would've definately allowed us to dominate the game more, but all the same we still won.
