Sir Alex sends his big guns to face Hull

1m British pounds for anyone who can name this man

United player

‘s relegation-threatened peers have been waking up in cold sweats all week, at the prospect of Sir Alex Ferguson bringing a weakened squad across the M62 for Man Utd‘s final day visit to the KC Stadium.

After some half-hearted reassurances that he might be able to sort something out…maybe…possibly…if he has time, with the squad finally announced it looks like SAF has pretty much confirmed his belief that Sunderland, Newcastle and Middlesbrough can go swivel, as he has a Champions League final to prepare for.

Gold star for anyone (who isn’t a United fan) that can put a face to every one of these names:

Man Utd (from): Kuszczak, Amos, Neville, Brown, De Laet, Ferdinand, Chester, Eckersley, Simpson, Fabio, Nani, Fletcher, Gibson, Tosic, Martin, Drinkwater, Macheda, Welbeck.

Should Sir Alex have to select a team with the drop zone’s feelings in mind? Thoughts below…

    I am not a Mancs but bottom only have themselves to blame. They have the whole season to do it and not depend on others to them a favor. Especially the big teams who are chasing trophies.

    Looks like the Championship is about to have a new glamour club. Then then again, when was the last time Hull won?

    Went to school with Ben Amos, the boy is quality. With emphasis on ‘boy.’

    Newcastle can go hang.

    They can go and swivel. Especially Newcastle. They should have pulled their finger out earlier in the season.

    The kid in the picture is Daniel Drinkwater, a promising young midfielder.

    It’s James Chester, not Daniel Drinkwater, in the photo.
