Sir Alex Ferguson today revealed that the rumours of illness swirling around the basins of united's Carrington training camp hold water...
In an unprecedented Derby eve confession, the jovial Scot told his usual fawning press pack that he has 'no idea where to begin with his team.'
Time and again in previous seasons along the decades Taggart has announced in the run up to a derby that numerous key players will not make the game, only for crestfallen City fans to see all the big guns rolled out and playing like there's no tomorrow.
Bearing this in mind, it would be no surprise to see Potato Head, Giggsy and Nani taking to the Eastlands field tomorrow night.
The only dead cert in this Blue's book is that Owen Hargreaves, 'The English Patient' who hobbled off again at the weekend is out.
That said, if he is trying the old mind games on yet again, it's well worth reminding him that one of the biggest factors in City's resurgence is that we no longer fear anyone and on our day can beat any side.
However, Nani included, Scholesy, Dimitar Berbaflop and Elbows Vidic are alleged to have been involved in a gastro virus inspired few days of musical toilet seats as their date with City's giant populated side draws closer.
'We've still got players out with flu and some were sent home yesterday so we're not in a great position at the moment...We are counting heads at the moment.'
Planet Blue will believe it when they see it, but in the meantime, the touchline chewing washing machine impersonator has again acknowledged his 'noisy neighbour's' relentless presence:
'Now the game between ourselves and City is one of great intensity...It's built up by the media explosion around what City are doing and trying to achieve in their own way and the fact we're both in the same city.'
- Well not quite your Lordship, but Welcome To Manchester again anyway.
