Ferguson's reliance on Giggs and Scholes
Wilks also writes on Futbolr.com on Sir Alex Ferguson's reliance on Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes may be the downfall of Manchester United's season.
Sir Alex Ferguson went with his old reliable senior citizens in the match against Liverpool. He started Scholes, Giggs, and the younger crowd of Berbatov and Rooney. In the absence of the suspended Vidic, he brought back Wes Brown to anchor the defense with young Smalling.
As the season enters the final months, Scholes and Giggs are looking like heavyweight pugilists who have discovered that the punch and the reflexes are no longer what they used to be. Rooney, despite scoring a spectacular bicycle kick a few games back, was missing in action against archrivals, Liverpool.
