He doesnt do much during a game - well, except scoring goals at an incredible rate
To think this is the season he was meant to find his feet.Role on next season
Best buy in the world since Ronaldo (for 12m, not 80m).
His first touch and dribbling has come on so much since the start of the season. Incredible rate of improvement.
What a buy !!! Fergie - trust him(always)!
Same with Smalling. Both have an incredible improvement rate and did so much better than anyone expected
Scoring goals galore is a very healthy habit for him. Everytime the ball flashes across the goalmouth you just expect him to be there.
Hernandez reminded me of Inzaghi at first sight, but he's quicker and has better technique. Do I not like that.
Nor does Jeremy Clarkson.
But it was a jjjjooookeeee....
Chico and Park scream in horror as they discover the replacement for the post-match prossie stuck on the M6
Little pea must be buzzing what a game thank you Chicharito
18 goals this season, fecking hell. The lad will get 20+ goals and who'd have thought that in his debut season? I think the majority of us just thought he'd spend some time in the reserves and maybe get the odd appearance. Fast forward to now....18 goals and already such an important part of our team.
I love him, can I marry him and have his babies?
Rooney really enjoys playing with him, Hernandez only needs one chance to make his mark on games - it's a great combination that has worked very well the past few months. Love his attitude, defenders hate him and he's going to get better next year.
I literally agree with Jamie Redknapp - signing of the century.
And amazing in the air
I said that back at the end of January when he had 10, he now has 18 with plenty of games to go. Some signing this lad.
It was already good but inconsistant in pre-season. Its still inconsistant, sometimes a great touch sometimes a poor touch. One or two fantastic dribbles, a number of times the ball has got stuck under his feet.
Its an area which can and will improve a lot
Twas funny seeing Rooney with his face buried in their nethers.
That pic reminds me of this very captionable one from the first leg. Sadly no Hernandez though:
There is something between Rooney and Hernandez
Displacing our top goalscorer (this season) for big games. What a testament it is about Hernandez!
29 appearances, 15 goals from 42 shots (strike rate of 36%), 16 chances created & 1 assist - all for £7 million.
stats are for PL & CL games only & taken from SSN.
Hernandez's goals-to-shots ratio (3.7 in the league) is second only to Lisandro Lopez amongst this season's top strikers. Impressive finishing but more so a reflection of his ability to get into telling positions.
Hernandez versus Lescott at the weekend pleases me.
Rio: "Hernandez is doing things that 27 year old strikers do, amazing movement"
'little pea' is trending on twitter.
The whole world is starting to notice him
What do we think about this disallowed goal?
Looks like a good call from that shot, to be fair.
Yeah, wasn't sure just afer that goal, but this picture says it all. You can score with your head and Hernandez scored with his head.
Thank God referee disallowed it. Ramires penalty and this goal would be for Chelsea fans something like van Persie's red card for the Gunners.
To be fair my expectations from him weren't that low (reserves+odd game). I thought he liked a star at the world cup and did expect him to make an impact. Just not this huge ab impact. I thought maybe 10 goals for the season with little impacts here and there but he's well and truly made his mark, scoring winners left right and centre and becoming integral to our team.
You can but youll have to fight me off first
There was this piece of skill near the end of the game when the ball came from behind him (somewhere near the centre circle) and he just took it in his stride with his first touch and kept running with the ball till he got tackled.
I remember a few years ago, Solsjaer doing something similar and going on to score a goal.
Are you God?
I think that we can confidently say that this partnership with Rooney has to be UTD's first choice pairing.
I really feel for Berba, he hasn't done much wrong.
Its the smile lads, its the smile.
I have to agree with you there.
I always thought Berba would be one to understand squad rotation, but being top scorer, and having had a phenomenal season, he's got to wonder what else he can do!
Saying that if Fergie could keep Teddy. Ole, Cole and Yorke rotating, I'm sure he knows when and how to utilise all of our strikers!! Berba gets to play at Wembley this weekend!
There was one moment last night just before half time when a Chelsea player was about to play the ball out from defence and Hernandez came from absolutely nowhere and nabbed it off him to set up another attacking move. It's very hard not to get carried away, but this guy is just awesome in every single way.
I don't think our scouting network has taken enough credit here...7 million pounds, christ.
I know this gets repeated all the time, but what a coup, we signed some bloke who obviously hasn't played 50 organized football matches in his life(bebe) and for the same price we signed an international striker, who has taken to European football like it was child's play.
If he improves his dribbling and link up, which I think he will, then god knows what he'll turn into
Says loads about the European system to me.
