Saha Happy To Start...

Louis Saha made only his second start of the season in the 2-0 win over Blackburn.

The Frenchman, famous for notoriously injuring himself in the most harmless circumstances and then failing to return for the date he has been pencilled in for.

Now he played in three successive games which - and forgive me for my cruelty - must be considered a success with him. He started the attack that led to our second goal at the Emirates with a delightfull pass, found Nani on the left before Rooney's goal against Kiev and launched the counter-attack that ended with Ronaldo's second against Rovers.

He did not score since the Chelsea game when he converted a penalty he won for his side and though he was far from his best in Saturday's game his quality is still undoubtable and we have good reasons to hope he somehow remains fit. Goals will come, too but he's not unduly worried about them.

'I won't complain. It has been such a long time since I was in the starting XI,' he said in L'Equipe.

'I was in the starting XI against Roma, but that day I was not at my best.

'It went smoothly against Blackburn and above all the team has won and that is most important.

'I took advantage of the Wayne Rooney injury, but that is why a whole squad is useful.'

No, he can't. Impact player, that's what he could be, Sir Alex is right. Could have had a bigger career but for his glass legs.
