-Trying to change the stupid habit of starting the match thread so so late- :doh: :tongue:

Okay...

When Ferguson says the title race is over, the title race IS over. :frownani:

13 points behind Chelsea with 7 games left, though still not mathematically impossible for Arsenal or United to catch up, would almost definitely mean that United will be without the title in successive seasons for the first time in 13 years.

The return of Ruud van Nistelrooy from injury, hailed by many as the possible saviour of United's season as he was in 2002/03, has in fact coincided with a relatively bad run of form for the club. The Dutchman has never looked sharp since his return; and Ferguson has hinted that he might be dropped for his bad form, in place of Smith and Saha, who have only played sporadically this season.

Against bottom-placed Norwich at Carrow Road on Saturday, Ferguson would definitely take it as a chance to rotate his squad, and give the two mentioned strikers and long-time-not-seen players like Kleberson a chance to prove their worth. It is really make-or-break time for certain players at the club, and they should really relish the opportunity, especially when it is against the **** non-flying Canaries.


Possible lineup:
-------------------------------Howard--------------------------------
G.Neville--------------Brown--------------Heinze----------------O'shea
------------Miller--------------Scholes--------------Kleberson---------
-------------------Smith--------Saha--------Ronaldo------------------

-Also put Rossi and Jones on the bench.

Whatever team Fergie puts out, I hope we smack the Canaries real hard. Give them a real big, big, big thrashing. 1-0 or 2-0 would not suffice. Just keep attacking, attacking, and attacking. Then watch the Norwich defence crumble into pieces (as if they weren't in pieces in the first place).

It would be a real embarrassment if we lose/draw/win by slight margin.

What Johnson? Eddie? He is on loan to Coventry at the moment, though.

Should be a comfortable win, but you never know with United.

Only takes Bentley or Ashton to have a good game, if our inability to score continues through today... might be a bit rough.

FFS....Maybe the only good thing to come out of this, is if fergie concedes 2nd place as well. If he does, then maybe he will start giving chances to Jonesy, Rossi, Pique, Spector.

Nonethe less....abysmal resilt :frownani: :wallbang:
