  • Should SAF stick with this starting XI or should he bring scholes back in. Now i think Scholes is one of the best midfielders in the game but Carrick and Flechter just seem to click in all games they have played this season. Thoughts please

    • I think SAF should make some changes there.

      We will have crucial games after this one especially at home and we need to rest key players otherwise we may lose the title. I mean, if we want to win the treble, than the bench has to step in and win such games.

      My starting XI would be:

      Kuzczak (never got his name right)
      Evra-Heinze-Rio-Brown
      Giggs-O'Shea-Scholes-Fletcher
      Olé-Smith

      • Coming close too the season end there is not a lot to be gained resting players.Scholes will return to midfield with Ronaldo wide right and giggs left.Rooney and smith will likely start up front.Defensively if Oshea is ok then last nights back four will start.Fletcher could retain his place but if he plays it must be central midfield and not out wide and this would allow Carrick a break.

    • Scholes has had a nice rest...
      Flecher deserves another game - this one is perfect...

      Therefore Carrick, as excellent as he most definitely was should be benched...

      Perfect tie to exercise this squad of ours a little. Smith has to keep his place too.

    • I have been strongly against seeing Fletcher in the squad never mind the team, however I think he has earned the right to play against Watford. No offence to Watford, but they are not the best team. Give him his chance, bring Scholes back in for the premiership, when he is most needed. I think Fletcher will be able to do the job needed against Watford, let him play.

    • id rather see Scholes back - Fletcher has done great but i cant see the boss dropping Scholes.
