Sakho back for Manchester United clash!

sakho-diafra_3214372Diafra Sakho is fully expected to return for next Sunday’s match against Manchester United after Fifa have investigated Senegal’s complaint against West Ham.’

The Senegal striker missed today’s game at Liverpool but club sources believe he is free to play after five days has elapsed following the nation’s elimination from a major tournament.

Despite the fact that the player was injured and unavailable to Senegal such has been the fuss kicked up by Senegal’s Federation, the Irons board decided to keep the player out of the action today and avoid any further problems and will help in any Fifa probe.

Sam Allardyce  issued a statement on the matter in which he said: “With Sakho it’s down to the situation we are in with FIFA.

  1. Now BFS has the problem of choosing between Sakho and Valencia, because the 70.000.000£ Carroll can’t sit on the bench. With Carrol the bench would be too tight for BFS where he’s always lying with his chewing gum… This is the true reason why Carroll never stay out…

  2. At last, some good news from today! Sakho is fit and free to play against utd! It also could be even better!
    With Carroll injured it is conceivable that he and Valencia could even start a match together!

    Even if andy was to be declared fit I would give him a rest just to see what Sakho and Valencia could do! Or untill valencia tires or continued to show his recent poor form and replace with carroll about the hour mark.

    Then it’s just a case of keeping our fingers crossed on the injury front go see what team we can put out. The defence again is a real worry.

  3. No philtheiron the problem is the midfield with Nolan in it,
    The good news is Fletcher is not coming,
    The defence problem is covered we have a right back Demel,Kouayte and Oxford can play alongside Cresswell with either ginge,Ried or Tomkins,
    The whole problem is you can’t beat the best with 10 men
    The diamond only works with Song and Noble or Kouyate to free up Downing,

  4. How much longer do we have to put up with BFS’s team selection? It has been obvious to everyone but him that Nolan is past it. He is a burden to the team, contributing virtually nothing but causing a big problem to the others around him. Why can’t BFS see that Valencia cannot operate alongside Carroll. He needs to play in the channels and receive balls played along the ground or into space behind the defence. Ditto Sakho. Hopefully we will see the pair of them together again if Carroll is out injured. The long ball played to Carroll almost always ends up with the defence after he has headed it – basically it gives the ball away. Downing? Why oh why is he put out wide when he has been a revelation at the top of the diamond?
    We had a winning formation and team before Nolan and Carroll came back. We need to get back to it quickly or we will slide down the table. Wake up BFS!!

  5. I honestly believe that Valencia will thrive if he is ever given the chance to play with Sakho again.They combined really well originally when they were together.They complimented eachother.We saw great movement & runs from both of them.Defenses really didnt like playing against them.Valencia showed as with Sakho he is really useful with his head,but when playing with Carroll he doesnt find himself in these positions.Playing alongside a big front man is alien to most south american players,they rarely do it.I feel sorry for the guy atm.Whether true or not & theres usually no smoke without fire Mourinho seems to like something about the lad.We really aint using him to his best effect & i cant see it happening anytime soon regularly while we have him playing alongside Carroll.Im afraid it will be back to the bench for him if Sakho & Carroll are both fit.The thought of starting with him & Sakho sometimes is far to outrageous for Sam to contemplate.How can he leave Carroll on the bench,that would be far to out of the box for Allardyces bland way of thinking.

  6. How come that Leicester’s Jeff Schlupp was able to play last week and today despite being injured when called up by Ghana the same as Sakho was. Had heard different rules and regulations that if called up and injured they can’t play for their team till the tournament is over etc wish websites would clarify.
