TV Scheduling Riles Sir Alex!

Sir Alex has got himself worked up again and with some justification.

Those that schedule the fixtures have done us no favours by asking us to play Everton on Sunday when we face Real Madrid, away, next Wednesday, prompting Sir Alex to remark,

"It`s ridiculous to think that we play on the Sunday and Real Madrid play on the Saturday with that extra days rest. We`re not giving our teams a chance to be successful in Europe."

"It`s nothing to do with the FA, it`s the Premier League. They agreed a contract with TV and they`re in control. Spain, Italy and Germany all help their clubs and France even more so. There they play on Friday nights."

"Teams in other countries do make sacrifices for their top teams in Europe. There`s nothing we can do about it, it`s done."


But the implications of the tight scheduling will force Sir Alex into making changes in his starting eleven with Sir Alex admitting,

"They will be different teams."

"The team on Sunday will not be the team that plays on Wednesday in Madrid."


Is there anyone out there bold enough to try and predict the two starting elevens?
