Fergie: Evra Needed A Break After Suarez Incident

Patrice Evra, who hasn’t played since our home win over Liverpool, is set to come back in to the team against Norwich today after being given some time off.

“The intention was always to give Patrice a clean break away from it all after the Suarez thing,” Fergie said. “He needed that rest factor because don’t forget he’s been playing non-stop for four years. But he’s nice and fresh now and he’s had his break. It was a difficult time mentally for him, with everything that’s been going on. After the Liverpool game was over, that was the right time mentally to give him the break. We also needed to give him a break physically, so he’s nice and fresh for the run-in.”

    Ha Ha. Yeh same happened in Didsbury, upper class wannabe’s in a Manchester overspill. House prices rocketed with new flats and apartments popping up on every bit of waste ground.
    Barbikan was always heaving but was well worth the wait.

    “Some interesting news to bring you on the Harry Redknapp for England front. FA chairman David Bernstein is at the Emirates Stadium and has now been in attendance for two consecutive Tottenham fixtures. For Tottenham fans this as worrying as the Emperor keeping close tabs on young Anakin Skywalker.”
