    Nice individual goal from Giggsy, nice pass from Scholes too.
    Long ball to Giggs to the left, evades a sliding tackle, cuts another defender, and a right footed shot to the corner.

    We are back to the top.
    2 points lead with game in hand.
    Chelsea and Arsenal are goners already. Villa are 3rd place now.

    Yeah the 2 old men delivered when the rest are struggling! Old is Gold! In fact dun think Scholes knew where Giggsy was when he passes the ball but it is due to their telepathy in which the ball was played and both are together for more then a decade and that connects them!

    And it is Giggsy first goal in the league this season!

    Reds name Euro squad

    Sir Alex Ferguson will have 30 players to select from when United return to the Champions League this month.

    The club has registered 25 names on the main list, known as "List A" in the competition rules, and an additional five players born on or after 1 January 1987 on "List B".

    The absence of Owen Hargreaves through injury and Manucho on loan to Hull City has freed up two spaces on "List A" - these have been filled with Federico Macheda (squad no. 41) and Davide Petrucci (43) from United's reserve-team ranks.

    New signing Zoran Tosic is not registered, however, as he is ineligible. The Serbian played - and scored - for Partizan Belgrade in their third qualifying round defeat by Fenerbahce.

    United's "List A" squad for the Champions League last 16 is as follows:

    GK: 1. Van der Sar, 12. Foster, 29. Kuszczak
    Def: 2. Neville, 3. Evra, 5. Ferdinand, 6. Brown, 15. Vidic, 20. Fabio, 21. Rafael, 22. O'Shea
    Mid: 8. Anderson, 11. Giggs, 13. Park, 16. Carrick, 17. Nani, 18. Scholes, 24. Fletcher, 34. Possebon, 43. Petrucci
    Fwds: 7. Ronaldo, 9. Berbatov, 10. Rooney, 32. Tevez, 41. Macheda

    "List B": Ben Amos, Richard Eckersley, Jonny Evans, Darron Gibson and Danny Welbeck.

    Alamak why is brown in there!

    Icons: Sir Alex Ferguson

    TV presenter and diehard Red, Eamonn Holmes, pays tribute to the boss, the man behind the success...

    Sir Alex is a man who inspires people to follow him. Hes like a religious leader: wherever he goes he spreads the Red gospel, and hes the man you want leading you when the chips are down. At the Battle of El-Alamein you had Montgomery; during the Second World War there was Churchill; and at Old Trafford we have Sir Alex. He has the gall, the strength and the steel to stand up to anybody and anything in any onslaught; he is our Braveheart.

    Hes also a winner, and one who gets results by playing attractive football. Hes nurtured talent and made fantastic signings over the years, but to be able to combine a winning ethos with flair is an incredible skill and, in my opinion, his greatest achievement. Some managers can win, others can play attractive football, few can put it together as one package. To do that hes had to make some difficult decisions over the years, and at times has had to be ruthless. He dropped Jim Leighton for the 1990 FA Cup final replay, while Bryan Robson missed out in 94 and Steve Bruce sat out the 96 final. It must be very difficult to tell someone whos been such a great servant that theyre not playing or tell them their time is up at United. But its a necessity if youre going to manage successfully at the highest level.

    Its amazing to think hes been here more than 22 years, and the success hes brought us is unprecedented. I often say its like being in television getting the job is hard, but staying there is much harder. Often greatness is judged on longevity rather than peaks, and he scores on all fronts in that sense.

    I was working in Manchester when he joined the club in 1986. I knew hed done well at Aberdeen, but like every United fan, I wondered if he could do the business at Old Trafford. He had a tricky couple of years to begin with, but after the 1990 FA Cup win the Fergie juggernaut rolled on. You could tell from the start that he understood the duties and responsibilities that go with managing this great club, and hes always been fantastic with the fans. He knows what its like to be a Manchester United fan because he is one you can see the passion he has for the club. Hes therefore very attentive to what the supporters say and how they feel. As a fan, his unwavering enthusiasm for the game and desire to win is something I have always admired. You can see how much he hates losing winning is everything to him, it hits him hard when he doesnt win. He feels it like the fans do. To have maintained that appetite for success for so long is staggering. I really do despair about what we are going to do when he decides hes had enough its not a day Im looking forward to.

    As well as the many ups, there has been the odd down, but Sir Alex is the master when it comes to responding to adversity. Hes always talked about the importance of bouncing back positively to either a shock defeat or elimination from a competition. And not only is the boss a great tactician and motivator, hes one of the games great characters. You can say what you want about him, but hes certainly not dull. He has a great sense of mischief and I love the ability he has to wind up other managers. At the same time hes someone who always has time for people, from players to opposition managers to fans. If he can do you a good turn, he wont hesitate in trying to help.

    Ive been lucky enough to play in one of his teams the two of us paired up for a special charity episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? [in December 2004], which was a real thrill for me. He loves quizzes and is extremely knowledgeable, and we left with 32,000. We were both desperate to get a million, but ended up using all our lifelines on the 64,000 question!

    Hes an unbelievable man and unquestionably the best football manager that there has ever been were just so blessed that hes ours.

    Manager Scolari sacked by Chelsea

    Luiz Felipe Scolari has been sacked as manager of Chelsea.

    A statement on the club's website revealed the move had been made "to maintain a challenge for the trophies we are still competing for".

    Scolari, who led Brazil to their 2002 World Cup win, was appointed in June as the replacement for Avram Grant.

    Chelsea, fourth in the Premier League and seven points behind Manchester United, will be led by assistant Ray Wilkins on an interim basis.

    "Luiz Felipe Scolari has been dismissed as manager of Chelsea Football Club with immediate effect," read the statement. "The Chelsea board would like to place on record our gratitude for his time as manager.

    "Felipe has brought many positives to the club since he joined and we all feel a sense of sadness that our relationship has ended so soon.

    "Unfortunately the results and performances of the team appeared to be deteriorating at a key time in the season.

    "In order to maintain a challenge for the trophies we are still competing for we felt the only option was to make the change now.

    "The search for a new manager has already started and we hope to have someone in place as soon as possible."

    A banner unfurled during Chelsea's 0-0 draw with Hull at Stamford Bridge on Saturday called for the installation of West Ham boss and former Blues favourite Gianfranco Zola as manager.

    Scolari sacked as Chelsea manager



    Luiz Felipe Scolari has been sensationally sacked by Chelsea.

    The Brazilian, who joined the Premier League club last summer, was expected to reinvigorate the club's fortunes and lead them to titles at home and in Europe, but after a poor run of form the axe has fallen.

    Avram Grant, the man Scolari replaced, has emerged as one of the candidates on Chelsea's shortlist to replace the World Cup-winning manager. The other name thought to be on Chelsea's list is Russia's national team coach, Guus Hiddink though the bookmakers' favourites are a dream team of Gianfranco Zola and Steve Clarke.

    Much of the talk among Chelsea fans already revolves around the combination of club legend Zola and former Blues player and coach Clarke, who left the Bridge to join up with his former team-mate at West Ham. Messages on banners unfurled at Stamford Bridge on Saturday demanded the end of Scolari's reign and the appointment of Zola and Clarke.

    Ray Wilkins replaces Scolari on a temporary basis until a full-time replacement can be appointed.

    A statement on the Chelsea website read: "Luiz Felipe Scolari has been dismissed as manager of Chelsea Football Club today (Monday) with immediate effect. The Chelsea board would like to place on record our gratitude for his time as manager.

    "Felipe has brought many positives to the club since he joined and we all feel a sense of sadness that our relationship has ended so soon. Unfortunately the results and performances of the team appeared to be deteriorating at a key time in the season.

    "In order to maintain a challenge for the trophies we are still competing for we felt the only option was to make the change now. The search for a new manager has already started and we hope to have someone in place as soon as possible."


    One name to be discounted is Roberto Mancini, according to his agent. Mancini, who is unemployed since being sacked by Inter Milan last summer, has been linked with a move to the London club in recent months.

    However, his agent Giorgio De Giorgis has had no contact with Chelsea.

    De Giorgis said to the Italian media: "No-one has contacted us, hence, I exclude the possibility that Mancini will go to Chelsea. We are aware of Scolari's sacking but they would have contacted us in the case they had though about him (Mancini). Instead, they have contacted others."

    Sir Alex shocked at Scolari exit

    Sir Alex Ferguson is shocked by Chelsea's decision to sack Luis Felipe Scolari but says it's "a sign of the times."

    Speaking live on MUTV from Malta, the United manager said: "I'm very surprised. It's a shock that one. He only took the job seven months ago.

    "Scolari's a man of great experience. He took Brazil to the World Cup final and won it and he was the obvious choice to replace Avram Grant seven months ago.

    "Really it's a sign of the times, I'm afraid. There's absolutely no patience in the world now.

    "Football seems more volatile now. You can't always blame the press but they play a part. The way tabloid journalism is today, they're competing against the internet and competing against Sky News so therefore there is sensationalism every time there's a bad result. We've all been subjected to that over the years.

    "Having lost the European Cup final, there were still expectations for Chelsea to do well this year. It's really only in the last month that they've had a bad spell. So I feel the judgement [to sack Scolari] is really based on the last month, not the previous six months. It is a surprise."

    Sir Alex Ferguson is in Malta to help fans there celebrate the 50th anniversary of their supporters' club. Look out for more special programmes on MUTV throughout this week.
