its not his wing play we will miss, its his through balls and set pieces. we should push scholes upfield for his creativity, and play park to compensate defensively.

and to echo the sentiments of many, GET OFF PARK'S BACK.the only game i can ever remember him letting us down in was vs Barcelona in the CL final. and he wasn't the only one guilty that night.he works hard, and is hard to pick up when he goes forward because he roams infield and interchanges well with evra/rooney from the left.as a squad player, i wouldn't swap him for anyone.
It will be 5 weeks maybe 6. You can't replace Giggs because he's priceless and besides, every penny that Utd make will be gobbled up by the banks and the Glazer's expense account (do they flip homes? ) Another Recession is in the offing, the banks don't want you to finish 5th next year and it is they who will decide if you can replace Ryan Giggs ! -----------------------Man U have a bad year and the club/company will be in serious poo.Hence all the yellow and green scarfs.
Giggs possible replacement, Nani Valencia Obertan Park, I don't see a problem.
Teams have to be a mix of youth and experience. The youth learn from them, but it has to be done in competitive games. Giggs is still vital to our squad as far as I'm concerned, he can come up with those moments of magic only experience brings. He will play an essntial role for us in the Premiership and Europe this season and the next, of that I am in no doubt.
4 weeks is nothing. Besides, we've got the squad to cope (though I admit, Nani's 3 match ban makes it less comfortable). I'd like to see Evra play in midfield with Fabio behind him at left-back for a few games.
WILL BE MISSED FOR MILAN I LOVE THE MAN
giggs is just a 24carrot ledgend to be honest no one will ever be able to fully replace him and tryin to get people like oberton to do it is just a waste of time.....we needed him and nani agains milan and now were gunna struggle. rooney cant do it all
What we miss the most is that nice left footed balance to the team. I think Park and Valencia are both primarily grafters so we might struggle to break teams down without Giggs and Nani. Looking at the teams we'll be playing during Nani's ban it's only really Everton where that lack of spark should be a problem with Nani being able to play against Milan.I wouldn't mind seeing what Fabio could perhaps do for us in that role against West Ham or Wolves where Park's more defensive role probably isn't required.Obertan is also a bit of a forgotten man who could play in those 2 fixtures.We could also play Rooney from the left and 2 of Owen, Berbatov & Diouf up front but with Euro knock outs on the horizon I wouldn't want to take him out of his stride.
I really admire Giggs but deep down I'm glad he is out for a while as he is so good and influential. United have missed Vidic, Ferdinand and O Shea but most teams have had their problems, Chelsea have been without Essien, Boswinga, Alex for a long time and Then the African nations cost us players and now Cole. Thats life and thats why we have squads...no excuses. Great player though and I WISH HIM WELL
