To play with 10 men or with John O’Shea, Sir Alex had one hell of a ‘Sophie’s Choice’ to make!

John O’Shea isn’t the worst player to ever play for Manchester United, but he sure hell runs whoever has that accolade pretty close. When Nemanja managed to injure himself you could see Sir Alex’s head ticking and ticking. Could I go with ten men instead?

Anyway there is obviously a fear now that the Serbian centre back could be out for a prolonged period.

“We hope it’s not serious,” said Ferguson. “We hope it’s a nerve injury but we can’t be sure right now. He will have a scan in the morning and we will know for sure after that. I pray and hope it’s not serious because he’s a vital part of our team.” (various)

In the meantime best to load the bench with defenders just in case John O’Shea get’s injured or get’s worse!
