    Im sure he will, making the step up to playng 60+ games a year isnt easy, and not having the rest time hes used to between games takes a while to adjust too.

    Im sure the lad will be fine though.

    He's 23 already, talk about a late starter!



    Edit: Nearly 23

    we were all so happy he is back but now hes back he has gone and injured himself although the club hasnt said how long, this is getting beyond a joke. Rafael and Fabio are young and used to get injured so much, I hope the same isnt with Cleverley because it would be a real shame for him and us.

    I don't feel overly worried about Cleverley's injuries if I'm being honest. He got a major one at the start of the season admittedly, however that does happen to almost all players at one stage of their career another. It seems that this injury isn't a re-occurence the last one, which is good.

    These days if you aren't world class by the time you're 18.5, you're complete shit and will never amount to anything.

    If you have six months to go till your birthday, do you say its nearly here. Thats friggin' half a year. And so what if he is 22/23, he can still play for 10+ years.

    That "late starter" comment has to be a deliberate piss-take? Surely?!

    Scholes was 23 or thereabouts when he got his first matches in centre mid for United.

    You're talking out of your arse... Fabregas and those of his ilk are rarities, not everybody's ready for a top club at that young an age, especially not in a position like CM.

    Personally, from a United point of view, I hope he doesn't go to the Euro's. It sounds like he needs a good summer off to mend and get a good pre-season behind him for next year.

    Last thing we need is an injury at the Euro's, no pre-season and a stop start beginning to next season.

    Not to mention that Carrick simply is a better player and deserve to go much more than Cleverley

    If he isn't in the squad for the Euros then he'll be in the squad for the olympic games.............therefore we all should hope he'll be in the squad for the Euros.

    If he's fit I think playing for England will be good experience for him. I'm not joking and am for real btw.

    I hope he goes too (not at the expense of Carrick though, he deserves it more), he needs as much football as possible.

    England would do well to play both. But it will be Lampard, Barry and Milner probably.

    Good news - though with our luck this probably means he has both feet knackered :(

    Dreadful today but shouldn't have been played so far forward. Our tactics were terrible.

    Understandably rusty after not playing for a while. He'll come good soon.

    Madness to play him on the wing whereas he was a million times more needed in midfield.

    Tom on the wing.

    Park in the middle.

    Someone should make some sort of Meme about this...

    His passing was woeful tonight, just goes to show he isn't ready (yet).

    Almost like he's just back from injury and playing against one of the hardest working midfields we've faced in 10 years.
