Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Van Persieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
According to Ferguson, Rafael didn't feature last week as he had a tight hamstring. The latest I read was he would be fit to play tomorrow. However, they may rest him for one more game to allow him to recover. The guy has actually done well, played a full 12 months without getting injured and has played the most games for us this season out of all the other players. Hopefully he's good to go tomorrow but we'll have to wait and see. As much as I like Jones and the fact he's done well in the right back role and has improved on his crosses, he's just not a real attacking threat going forward like Rafael and he doesn't have good link-up play with Valencia like Captain Rafael does.
It's going to be a tough game tomorrow. I really hope Ferguson picks his best starting XI and not a midfield pairing of Scholes/Giggs otherwise, we're fucked.
As for Nani going, I do hope that doesn't come true but it looks like it could happen. It's a shame as 2 seasons ago, he was our best player and now look at him. Gone back to playing shit and then no sign of him for months. You never know though, he may get a few chances to impress and if he does, he may be given another opportunity.
