Solskjaer Undergoes Surgery

United have lost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for a month as the Norwegian striker underwent a minor knee surgery.

Ole has had this problem for a while now and it has been decided his knee should be cleaned now.

'That was done a few days ago. It was good timing with the international (break) coming up,' Sir Alex Ferguson said.

'It gave us the opportunity to get the thing done and get it cleaned out. It's nothing serious.'

That's OK but a month is still a month. Fergie does not dare to use Alan Smith so we have three strikers at the moment, one of them heading back to Sweden in 10 days' time. Of course, United will get through three very important games until that: the league clash with Liverpool, the Champions League second round game against Lille and the FA Cup quarter-final with Middlesbrough.

Then we'll have two strikers only for Bolton and maybe Smith will get a place on the bench but if Saha or Rooney get injured, we'll be in dire trouble. Solskjaer should be back for the visit of Blackburn on March 31 - let's hope Louis and Wayne will now complete this season without injuries.

But when will Smith be match fit? He's kept out of matches on the basis of match fitness... do you see the irony?
