Will Buckley limped off after 15 minutes of the draw with Leicester and his replacement, Kazenga LuaLua, was also struggling towards the end.

"We lost Bucca early so we had to change him and we nearly lost Kazenga, that is why he was not starting," said Poyet.

"We need to wait and see what's going to happen with Buckley and Kazenga but it's not a coincidence, there have been a lot of studies about this sort of thing.

"If we can train and play on the same sort of surface, with the same weather, that will help.

"We have had to train on really wet ground one day, the next morning it's frozen then the next morning we are on the Amex pitch which is completely different. The players pay the price.

"Until we get to the training ground, where we have two pitches similar to the Amex pitch, I think it will be difficult for us."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
