The show goes on. It always does, and after my mini-depression after the 6-1 loss, I think it's time to get back on the horse. The play against Everton was good, at least in the first hour. Now we head back into Europe.
We beat these guys 2-0 at their Romanian home last time. Here's to another win to add to our Champions League hail and general momentum. We're currently second in the group with 5 points, two behind leaders Benfica.
Just for the record, I'm throwing all form out the window for this. A clean slate is what we need. Although we beat Everton, it wasn't anything like our play from earlier this season. Let's make it happen tonight.
On the Home Front
Cleverley is sitting this one out. More precaution than enforced spell on the sidelines. Joining him on the road to recovery will be Smalling and Gibson with Giggs and Young most likely to be missing as well. Other than that, our colossus is suspended for this game after the red card he got last game.
- Lindegaard will get his now customary Champions League start. I can't remember the last time we had a tandem goalie system working. But I'm liking it.
- Jonny Evans is playing like he there is a tomorrow. Transfer list?
- Danny Welbeck is soaring above all expectations. As is Tom Cleverley. A bright future beckons.
