    Trio ready for Derby

    Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Jonny Evans are all in contention for Sunday's FA Cup tie at Derby, but Wayne Rooney is a doubt as the Reds attempt to ease him back from a hamstring strain.

    Ferdinand missed England's 2-0 defeat against Spain in midweek through illness, and although he sat out training at Carrington on Thursday, he's expected to be ready for Sunday.

    Evra, meanwhile, has recovered from the foot injury sustained in the win over Chelsea on 11 January, while Jonny Evans has shaken off an ankle knock picked up in the Carling Cup semi-final victory over the Rams last month.

    “There are a couple of days to go before the game yet, but Jonny Evans and Patrice Evra are training and they’re OK," Reds assistant boss Mike Phelan said on Friday.

    “Rio came in on Thursday. He felt a bit better even though he didn’t train, but we hope he’ll get some training today (Friday). He should be OK."

    Phelan chaired Friday's press conference as Sir Alex Ferguson attended a family funeral. The boss' right-hand man also confirmed that the club's medical staff are continuing to monitor Wayne Rooney's return from a hamstring injury.

    The striker hasn't featured since hobbling out of the 1-0 win over Wigan on 14 January, and Phelan insists he would be eased back into action.

    “We’re still assessing Wayne," he said. "He’s done a little bit of work but we’re not going to rush him. We have some big games coming up, so we’ll ease him back in, but do it as quickly as we can.

    "If he’s available on Sunday, terrific. If not, we’ll look at it for the next game against Fulham. We have numerous players in the squad that we can use if [he isn’t ready for Sunday]. We’ll assess that on Saturday or Sunday.”

    The Reds would, of course, like to have Rooney fit for the forthcoming Champions League tie with Internazionale, but Phelan says “nothing will be done to jeopardise” Rooney’s well-being. “We’ll make a decision when he’s fit and on which game he should play in.

    “The game against Inter Milan is a big game and it’s always in your mind. But it’s still a way off. We have three games to play between now and then. We’ll pick out teams accordingly for each of those games."




    Hope everyone will be back on time for the Milan Game!

    Funny thing is last month there were reports of the team in injury crisis and then pop out the regular faces in the team.

    May be Rooney be an exception

    The team facing Derby on Sun will be different from the team that played in the League Cup Semi. SAF doesnt want replay.

    The game starts on very late. Dont think I will watch

    Beckham returning to Galaxy when loan ends



    The English midfielder will return to the MLS team next month as scheduled after his two-month loan agreement with AC Milan ends despite his wish to stay in Italy.

    Tim Leiweke, president of Galaxy parent AEG, said Friday the Italian club didn't make a second offer to the Galaxy to keep Beckham so the team will adhere to MLS commissioner Don Garber's Friday deadline to resolve the situation.

    The Galaxy had earlier rejected Milan's only offer.

    "We didn't receive an offer today," Leiweke told The Associated Press by phone from Colorado. "We will abide by the commissioner's wishes, so we are clear at this point that we don't want to have any further conversations."

    Leiweke said he had discussions with Milan officials earlier in the week, but heard nothing from them Friday.

    "They clearly were looking at this as a football decision and we were looking at it as a football and business decision," he said.

    "I'm not sure they ever quite understood the magnitude of the losses the Galaxy and the league would have had to bear this season. They were very respectful discussions. We're fine. There's no issues here."

    Leiweke said he had not spoken directly to Beckham, but that he informed the player's representatives the loan would not be made permanent. Beckham's five-year Galaxy contract is owned by MLS, and he is due in the team's training camp on March 9.

    "I know David is emotionally invested, but I don't think Milan really was that interested in spending the money we would have had to receive to compensate us for our losses," Leiweke said.

    "We need David to honor the contract and come home and let's stop the distraction."

    Leiweke said Beckham will likely be disappointed by the outcome, but added that "David is a professional. He will get his arms around this and he will come back here."

    Beckham had said he wanted to stay with Milan in a bid to play one more World Cup with England in South Africa next year.

    "He can probably still accomplish that as well by being here in 2009," Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said Friday before the resolution was announced.

    "We look forward to having him back with the club," Arena said in a statement issued Friday night.

    Leiweke confirmed that Beckham has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave at the end of this year.

    "Clearly the risk is we may lose him at the end of the year," Leiweke said. "Our hope is the team surprises him and we're a lot better than last year."

    Beckham arrived injured amid much hoopla in July 2007, but he had no goals and two assists as the Galaxy finished with a 9-14-7 record that was third-worst in the league. Last season, Beckham had five goals and 10 assists, but the Galaxy's 8-13-9 record tied for the worst in MLS.

    Beckham was injured last season, when he left the Galaxy at various times for appearances with England's national team.

    Garber said this week he wanted Beckham's future resolved by Friday or he would not approve any transfer between the two teams.

    "The negotiations are over and we move on," Leiweke said. "We look forward to seeing David back in camp. We need to have a good season and we need to live up to a higher expectation."

    Leiweke said the Galaxy's sponsors and season ticket holders were clamoring for a conclusion to the saga.

    "We heard loud and clear this week from our contractual partners that they wanted an end to this," he said. "We need to pay a little bit of attention to the league and Galaxy now."

    The Galaxy opens the MLS season at home March 22 against D.C. United.

    United won't risk Rooney for FA Cup clash



    Manchester United will not jeopardise Wayne Rooney's fitness by rushing him back to action for Sunday's FA Cup tie at Derby.

    Rooney has been absent with a hamstring injury for almost two months and was expected to return at West Ham last Sunday.

    However, the England striker was left out for the win at Upton Park and seems unlikely to be risked this weekend either as the Red Devils chase a quarter-final place.

    With the first leg of their Champions League knock-out clash against Inter Milan due to be played at the San Siro on February 24, United are not keen to risk Rooney just now.

    So, the chances are Rooney will not be considered until next Wednesday's Premier League encounter with Fulham at Old Trafford.

    "We are still assessing Wayne,'' said United assistant-boss Mike Phelan. "He has done a little bit of work but we are not going to rush that situation because we have important games. We will ease him back in as quickly as we can.

    "If he is available terrific, if not we will look at it for the next game against Fulham because we would never jeopardise anything.''

    Final Score
    Derby County 1-4 Man Utd


    All 4 goals are good.
    Nani with his trademark left side cut to centre, and a powerful shot from outside the box.
    Gibson first time volley from a deflected Ronaldo freekick.
    Powerful header from Ronaldo from a corner.
    And Welbeck scored from the corner of the box with a right footed curler.

    Lots of youngsters played too.
    Forster, Rafael, Evans, Gibson, Possebon, Welbeck.
    Good exposure for them.

    Again I think Nani was the different, his trickery and shooting ability is constant a threat on the left side.....although his performance has been subdued after the goal...but it helps the team to settle down and controlling the tempo....otherwise it will be a hard game against a hardworking side

    Actually I am quite surprise at the level of penetration of this team despite lack of the main strikers

    Danny Welbeck has good instincts on a cool head. It's like he had already decided what to do before the ball came to him. If he continues developing at this pace, bulks up his frame for greater strength, he will be one to watch... It would be great to see the academy finally producing a top-class centre-forward, after all the midfielders, wingers and defenders...
