United - Ferguson To Use Youngsters Again!

Our season continues this evening with a trip to Upton Park!

We take on West Ham United in a Carling Cup quarter-final as we continue the defence of the Carling Cup whilst also trying to win it for a third season on the trot.

On the back of an unbeaten start to the season, United travel to East London hot favourites to win against a West Ham side who have struggled this season. But, the Hammers do enter the fixture on the back of a win over Wigan Athletic this season and the vociferous home crowd will be keen to see their side close in on a possible Wembley appearance.

Here at Vital Manchester United, we expect Sir Alex Ferguson to ring the changes, the eleven that take to the field will differ greatly from the eleven that thrashed Blackburn Rovers on Saturday as our boss continues to use this competition to blood the youngsters, a ply that has worked well for him in the past, as he explain sin his pre-match interview,

"It would be great to win it three times in a row. I think we were the first to win it twice in a row and that was a feat in itself."

"But the League Cup is an interesting trophy now."

"We come into it a bit later and it gives me the chance to play the young players."

"Over the last three years the Da Silvas, Danny Welbeck and Macheda are among those to have won a League Cup winners` medal."

"It`s a healthy position for them to be in because they get to play in cup finals and judge how to handle it."

"The players who played against Wolves are hopefully the club`s future. By the time they`re 24 or 25, we hope they`ll be the next Manchester United."

"We made changes at Rangers last week and will make changes at West Ham. We`ve got a very strong squad, particularly in the front positions."


I`ll not hazard a guess as to what I perceive the starting eleven will be but suffice to say I believe it should be strong enough to beat anything West Ham can throw at us.

West Ham, under the guidance of Avram Grant, are a side that can play attractive football and United will need to be wary of the threat that the likes of Piquionne, Obinna and Parker can bring but shorn of the midfield talents of the injured Mark Noble and Jack Collison, I`d suggest the midfield is an area where they can be got at.

I`m taking United to win comfortably; by two clear goals if not more even if Sir Alex does choose to rest Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney!
