Before kick-off today I asked the question was today the day for Federico Macheda? With Dimitar Berbatov injured, Wayne Rooney suspended and Carlos Tevez jet-lagged following his return from South America the evening before yesterday, our options were limited.
Macheda scored a hattrick for the Reserves last week, forcing Sir Alex Ferguson to pay attention. Thank God he did!
