Laitetaan tähän mukaan omakin lusikka, jolla olen jotain saanut kauhottua:
Manchester United have handed squad numbers to five young players this week.
Daniel Nardiello, who returns from a month-long loan at Swansea, joins Luke Steele, Ben Williams, Neil Wood and Phillip Bardsley who have also been handed squad numbers.
Luke Steele, 19, is a goalkeeper who signed from Peterborough in May 2002. Phillip Bardsley, 18, was part of United's Youth Cup-winning side last season and is yet another youngster to graduate from Brian McClair's cup-conquering team.
New Squad Numbers Position Age
30 Luke Steele Goalkeeper 19
34 Phillip Bardsley Defender 18
35 Neil Wood Midfielder 20
36 Daniel Nardiello Striker 21
37 Ben Williams Goalkeeper 21
Bardsley joins fellow youth cup winners David Jones, Eddie Johnson and Chris Eagles were all given squad numbers earlier this season.
Ben Williams, 21, joined United in August 1999 and has been involved with United's reserves and has appeared on the bench for United's first team.
Neil Wood, 20, is the current captain of Ricky Sbragia's reserve side.
The new squad numbers mean that the five are likely to be vying for a place in Fergie's squad that travels to West Brom for Wednesday night's Carling Cup tie.
Bolton to rest players before Fulham game

Sam Allardyce has dropped a broad hint that he will rest players for Wednesday's Carling Cup tie at Liverpool.
Pilloried in the past for not fielding his strongest teams in cup competitions, particularly the League Cup, the Wanderers' boss has made it clear that the attraction of a so-called glamour tie will not tempt him to change his policy.
Premiership survival remains his top priority, even if it means disappointing players who fancy a cup tussle with the Mersey Reds.
"The players are going to want to play at Anfield but, as always, the players will play and the manager will manage," Allardyce said.
"The manager's heart will not over-rule his head because the manager wants to get to the Carling Cup Final but he doesn't want to be like Bryan Robson and get relegated in the process."
The reference to Robson's bitter experience of 1997, when he took Middlesbrough to the finals of the two domestic competitions while dropping out of the Premiership, serves to justify Allardyce's selection policy and answer his critics. And, as if to underline the point, he draws on his own experience this season when he lost the services of Emerson Thome, his only recognised central defender, when the Brazilian pulled a hamstring in the Third Round victory over Gillingham.
"That should tell everybody why the cup takes a back seat as far as I am concerned," he stressed.
Patrick Vieira is likely to play a part in tonight's Carling Cup tie against Wolves at Highbury - His first appearanace since limping off in the Newcastle game on September 26th.
The Boss has said: "Patrick will play from the start. I am a little bit cautious but he is always very impatient to start and at the moment he looks to be ready to start."
"How long he will last I don't know, maybe an hour. It is important to have Patrick back, especially as we have lost Ray Parlour, and he could be out for two weeks."
Keown and Lauren are still unavailable due to suspension, but expect to see a mixture of youth and experience on the pitch from the off - with maybe Thierry Henry on the bench ready to play a part.
Team from: Lehmann, Cole, Cygan, Clichy, Campbell, Taure, Hoyte, Pires, Ljungberg, Edu, Silva, Bergkamp, Vieira, Henry, Wiltord, Kanu, Aliadiere, Stack, Senderos, Papadopulos, Bentley.
Arsenal v Wolves
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will give Patrick Vieira his first start for over two months in the fourth-round Carling Cup tie with Wolves at Highbury.
Vieira has recovered from his thigh injury and will lead a young Arsenal side on Tuesday.
"I've been working hard with fitness coach Tony Colbert for the last 10 days and I'm feeling good," said Vieira.
"I always saw the Wolves games as a possible return but I've been determined to get fully fit before playing.
"The last couple of months have been a nightmare to be honest. I just want to play so much."
Vieira's return is a timely boost for Arsenal who have lost Ray Parlour to injury and Wenger is hoping to get at least an hour from his club captain against Wolves.
"Patrick will play from the start. I am a little bit cautious but he is always very impatient to start and at the moment he looks to be ready to start," said the Gunners' boss.
"How long he will last I don't know, maybe an hour.
"It is important to have Patrick back, especially as we have lost Ray Parlour, and he could be out for two weeks."
Wenger will use the chance to give some of his fringe players - including Philippe Senderos, David Bentley and Michal Papadopulos - a run.
Striker Sylvain Wiltord is available after shaking off a groin problem.
But defenders Martin Keown and Lauren are both out through suspension.
Colin Cameron is still unfit to return to the Wolves line-up because of a stomach injury.
Paul Ince (ankle) requires a late fitness test while striker Steffen Iversen is sidelined with a calf problem and central defender Isaac Okoronkwo has a hamstring strain.
Striker George Ndah, goalkeeper Matt Murray and central defender Joleon Lescott remain long-term casualties.
Goalkeeper Andy Marshall, who is on loan from Ipswich, has been given permission to play by the Suffolk club.
Arsenal (from): Lehmann, Cole, Cygan, Clichy, Campbell, Taure, Hoyte, Pires, Ljungberg, Edu, Silva, Bergkamp, Vieira, Henry, Wiltord, Kanu, Aliadiere, Stack, Senderos, Papadopulos, Bentley.
Wolves (from): Oakes, Irwin, Craddock, Butler, Naylor, Newton, Ince, Rae, Gudjonsson, Andrews, Kennedy, Blake, Camara, Miller, Cooper, Silas, Marshall.
Southampton v Portsmouth
Southampton striker Kevin Phillips is expected to recover from illness in time to face Portsmouth.
The south-coast rivals meet at St Mary's in a Carling Cup fourth-round tie.
Phillips sat out training on Monday but Saints boss Gordon Strachan is optimistic he will be fit to start against Pompey.
However, left-back Graeme Le Saux will not feature due to his hamstring problem.
Forwards Marian Pahars and Agustin Delgado have just returned after long-term ankle and back injuries respectively.
Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has major injury problems with Shaka Hislop, Nigel Quashie, Vincent Pericard, Jason Roberts and Svetoslav Todorov all out injured.
However, Senegal midfield player Amdy Faye may be recalled after a month out with a knee injury, while Mark Burchill is set to make his first appearance of the season on the bench.
Southampton (from): Niemi, Dodd, Telfer, Lundekvam, M Svensson, Fernandes, Delap, A Svensson, Marsden, Beattie, Ormerod, Phillips, Delgado, Griffit, Higginbotham, Pahars, Hall, Prutton, Jones.
Portsmouth (from): Wapenaar, Zivkovic, De Zeeuw, Stefanovic, Schemmel, Foxe, Stone, Smertin, Sherwood, Sheringham, Berger, Yakubu, Srnicek, Primus, Taylor, Burchill.(NewsNow + kotisivut)
