Rio Recall for Hammers Trip

With two centre backs out injured, in the shape of Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling, allied with the fact that Nemanja Vidic is suspended after his red card against Liverpool, last Sunday, could Rio Ferdinand be in line for a rare start?

With United 3-0 down on Sunday and with Vidic having been sent off, David Moyes made a vain attempt to shore up the defence by introducing Rio with three minutes to go.

This weekend, down in East London, it`s anticipated that Rio will be playing at the heart of our defence alongside Phil Jones.

With there having been no clear indication of whether Rio will remain at Old Trafford next season, it`s quite ironic that the former international defender could be making one of his final appearances for Manchester United at the very club where he made his reputation.

When Rio and Vidic leave at the end of the season if we don't go into the market looking for a CB, as well as the variety of other positions that need strengthening and filling, we just as well write off next season now while we're at it also like we've done with this season. Evans, Jones and Smalling aren't sufficient enough in terms of experience nor reliability for the vigours of a Premier League season. Their respective injury records this season alone, let alone the history of regular lay-outs due to niggly injuries, should be proof enough that we need strengthening in that department. Moyes will be well and truly turning us into Everton 2.0 (perhaps unfair on Everton because it's just a typical Moyes team) with a thread bare squad.
Rio to the rescue! Oh nevermind he's also trapped in the fetid mire of mediocrity enveloping United presently. Lucky thing we have that never say die attitude and character to call upon in our moments of tribulation.
