Good news and bad news today, fellow Reds. First the good news, which concerns team news ahead of the QPR game: Ander Herrera, and all of our summer signings, are fit and ready for action.
Now, the bad news: Phil Jones is not, because he was crocked while playing for England, as he is accustomed to do. Which means our available centre-back options are likely to consist of Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, and probably not a whole lot else. There's Tyler Blackett, but it seems a bit much to be relying on him at this stage.
Of course, the theory doing the rounds is that Louis van Gaal might be about to swap to a 4-3-3 anyway, which would allow us to only play two of the players who are in the position in which we are weakest. Which seems like a good idea to us.
Still, we signed Falcao, so who cares?
