Scholes picks his dream Man Utd XI + More fixture woes!
1. Paul Scholes has chosen his dream Man United XI which he has made out of players he has played alongside. Even though it includes the likes of David Beckham and Ruud van Nistelrooy, but there was no place for Cristiano Ronaldo in his eleven.
“Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be happy to hear it but he’s a substitute,” said Scholes.
Cantona also misses out, with Sheringham preferred ahead of the United legend. The team includes four current United players, Gary Neville, Wes Brown, Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs.
The midfielder chose the following in his XI:
Schmeichel, G Neville, Ferdinand, Brown, Irwin, Beckham, Keane, Robson, Giggs, Van Nistelrooy, Sheringham.
2. With the increasing number of names on Man Utd’s injury list with already 12 first team players out, the crisis has not been helped with the news that United’s game against Everton has been rescheduled to Saturday evening.
The match has been brought more than 48 hours forward because Everton will have to play their FA Cup replay that same week. That will now mean less time for the Red Devils injured players to recover. Rio Ferdinand and Park Ji-sung now seem unlikley to play against the Toffees as they might not get fit in time.
3. Some good news for United’s reserves, as they will be in action for the first time in a month. Two fixtures have been postponed in the past, but it unlikely todays match will be called off. Watch out for Ritchie De Laet, our latest signing making his debut, and Davide Petrucci who scored two goals for the U18′s last week. They will play Blackburn tonight at 7pm.
