    Rafael off? What? Why? Just take Giggs off for Scholes as a direct replacement.

    I don't understand refs there.. They have two options

    1) Call the free kick to team A
    2) Throw in to team B

    But instead they somehow pussy out of both decisions and give a throw (that they know is wrong) to team A.

    Really can't see the logic in this decision; moving our most inform player out of position, a position where they're weakest. Baffling from SAF.

    Then again he knows better than me

    We can't take out one of the centerhalves. Rafa shouldn't play on the left instead of Evra. So yes, If Fergie wants that kind of sub, it has to be Rafael. Cruel but true.

    I think SAF is just protecting Rafael from injury - playing three consecutive games.

    Taking off Giggs would reduce the speed in midfield too much. Can't have Carrick and Scholes only. I think Rafael is not needed right now when Valencia might as well do the job + he's able to fill in once we attack. It's an all-in situation right now.

    So now when we need energy in the midfield we have Giggs and Scholes. I love them both to bits but for feck sake they can't do the leg work needed in a game like this.
