This one could be trouble without Sandro, but we will always have September 29.
I am high on flu drugs so writing coherent thoughts is difficult. In lieu of a real preview today, I give you this:
Fun fact! I spent the last 20 minutes of that match sitting on the floor under a table at the bar in fear. I would appreciate it if they didn't make me have to do that this time.
Realistically, this one could get ugly. Without Sandro, the defense will be exposed to a team that has infinity attackers. Scott Parker is good, but he's not the same shield as Sandro. He's more Tasmanian Devil to Sandro's Bowser.
Maybe Andre Villas-Boas has a new plan of attack and will try to exploit the weak United midfield without as sturdy a defense. Hopefully he does, because it will take something new and different to get a result, even at home. In the meantime, we can bask in the glory of September 29.
