I really hope this rumour is completely wrong, but I have heard stories of Jags breaking down with his knee injury.
There is only two weeks to go until the season starts and we can't afford to lose one of our best players and our terrible injury curse strikes again.
I'm not sure if Heitinga is even back in training yet, he surely won't be match fit in two weeks, neither Fellaini.
We need our biggest and best defenders for the first game against an Allardyce side and desperately want a winning start.

"Phil Jagielka might miss the game as well because he has a little bit of a problem with his knee but overall we aren't looking too bad."
Doesn't sound that serious.

Just hope its not a cover for the fella talking to Arsenal... that's ultra paranoid I know! I'm sure we wouldn't sell Jags for less than £25m.

The rest is up to referee interpretation and that is where complaints should be directed.
I have no qualms with big Sam's style and often muse about how he would fare should he ever have his choice of players.

As for the Cahill stuff, it worked a treat.
I well remember Sam's self satisfied grin when another blatant foul perpetrated on Tim went unpunished.
I also noted that in subsequent games our Davy also tried to pre condition referees.
I know that kind of malarky is unsportsmanlike but what's good for the goose etc.

Authorities govern the game... managers are free to manage (and be punished) within the rules.

As for Jags if he's fit great if not it aint the end of the world, or anywhere as bad as last season, i'm more concerned that when Coleman was on today we where 2-0 up when Tony went to r/b and Yobo came on we lost 2 sloppy goals, alledgely those aformentioned players faults, not calling them on one game but it does appear to happen more than i'd like.
