The strain of playing 9 games in 30 days is beginning to take it's toll on United. Tevez, Evans, Ronaldo and Rooney suffered from knocks in the mid-week victory over Wigan. Having lost Ferdinand to injury, we now await news of Jonny Evans' fitness ahead of the trip to the Reebok.
At some point this season, it looked impossible to have both Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez injured, and yet that is also a possibility should the Argentine International fail a fitness test today. It's ill-luck and besides the opposition tomorrow, that's one factor we shall have to overcome. Fergie has backed Berba to show his class in the absence of Wayne so hopefully that will be the case as we must try to unpark the bus that Bolton will park in front of their goal tomorrow. I think we'll need the strength of Anderson more in the middle. I don't know if the likes of Giggs and Scholes and Neville will cope with the aggression of Bolton. Kevin Davies can hurt a wrestler so Fergie will have to work that out.
Regardless of the problems we have, this is one game we must not spurn--the prize---top of the league! If we really want Liverpool to feel the pressure of being top, we must start swapping positions with them pretty soon. So hopefully, the lads will be up for it tomorrow. I will not complain if we win yet another game 1-0. This season, a number of teams have stepped up their performances so the minimum requirement will do! News coming in suggests that Manucho has joined Hull on loan for the rest of the seasson. Good for him!
