i disagree vidic has played in all 3 of the last games, while jones and evans are still injured, im pretty sure ferguson said evans will miss the start of the season
While I like Vida play at Everton I just donít think can through him back in after the injury he suffered last year, we also have to be wary of fact cant play every game now as his 30. So SAF going have to put him in when he knows his 100% ready & Vida playing 60mins v Valerenga then 45mins v Barca in Pre season doesnít equal ready for big Prem League game v Everton, him taking part in those games is massive step forward in his road to recovery but in no way can see him starting or even on bench v Everton, just think it far to soon. I like to be proven wrong though.
SAF lies all the time, its what he does I cant count how often he does it & he always will do it. Him saying Evans miss start of the season doesnít mean anything until Evans is not on team sheet then I treat it as speculation/SAF lying, cos SAF ALWAYS knows his teams for matches long before they happen & team for the match after that & match after that & so on so fourth so good indication of who will play is when SAF says want take part in game 9 times out 10 they will. When SAF says Evans not be fit for start of season my feeling not only will he be fit he will start at CB alongside Rio.
Recent Classic example FA Cup QF v Arsenal last year at the press conference, SAF was asked on Toni availability for the match he replies back with to early for him he will be back in a few weeks though, 24 hours later & Toni on the bench & plays from 2nd half onwards.
All im saying is donít rule out possibility that Evans will play v Everton, just cos SAF says so doesnít make it 100% true mate..
Highly doubt Vida play vs Everton my guess is Evans or Jones at CB agree with rest of the team & Scholes will start alongside Carrick imo.
But Ando & Clev link up play from CM to final 3rd along with Nani; Rooney & Kagawa looks extremely promising, yes only pre season but can see Kagawa just has this un teachable knack of finding/creating space for himself & others that will be of huge benefit to us over course of the season.
Defense was dodgy but was mix & match job but attacking play looks really good. I expect the front 4 of Toni Kagawa Rooney Nani to be used v Everton & all 4 will starting doing some training together as a front 4 until Everton game in preparation for the match.
I'm just glad Ando & Clev looked sharp it would be fantastic if both can stay fit & hit good form during the season (touch wood). It would increase our chances of winning title/s this season if both did imo.
Have to play Vidic. Don't have a choice I'm afraid, lack of other options and consider what Fellaini/Jelavic done to us last season. Against a less physical strike force I'd agree, but those two bullied Evans and Rio off the pitch last time out. We'll need Vidic. Rest him against Southampton if needs be but absolutely play him here. He's looked pretty mobile, and he's still a beast.
Agree about Anderson and Cleverley, they were forming a good partnership at the start of last season before both got injured. Still don't think either are reliable enough to be the long term answer, but it's a good option when we're in need of a goal.
Kagawa just looks fucking amazing. He can be as good as David Silva in this league, he's that sort of player. He's not a CM though, and we shouldn't experiment with that anymore, albeit it was worth a shot.
