Nail, head, wallop and all that.
Maybe we should let him go on a season long loan somewhere to see if he can get a ton of first team football. Maybe that will be the catalyst he needs to hit the heights he is potentially capable of?
6 years is a long time. The few games he's gotten in the run-in suggests that Fergie has given up on him. He and Nani are goners, imo.
As a young player, he was hugely talented (no pun intended), and is a generally likable guy who I have willed to succeed. However, we need someone better and more reliable. This idea of trying to combine Anderson and Cleverley together to make one very good midfielder is a joke now. I don't see why we must have only one midfielder in Carrick who you can confidently say will make the team, and then his partner shared between about 5 players. It's all covering over the fact that for one reason or another, none are good enough. When I was growing up, we had Keane and Scholes who, come saturday at Anfield or Highbury, you knew would be starting. Now, Carrick could literally turn up next to anybody! Nicky Butt who was a back-up in those days would walk into our team alongside Carrick I reckon.
So what's going on with Fatso? Will we see him again this season or is he injured for the rest of the season.
I hear the club have placed him on buffet leave.
I've heard that Porto want him back real bad and united wouldn't mind doing business.
If he's not inured, surely he's on his way out? Not being at least able to make the bench vs West Ham, when we have so few options as it is just doesn't look good.
I doubt anyone wants Anderson 'real bad'. Someone might take a chance on him and try to turn him into a player but with his current level no one will really want him that much.
Anderson and Nani are gone IMO. So after 6 years all of our Summer 2007 spending spree acquisitions will be gone and none of them will really be considered a success.
He was a bit of a hero at Porto. I'd like to see him go back and rediscover his mojo.
A bit ironic. What an incredible day of rejoicing on the Cafe when we landed Anderson and Nani. I remember pictures of Gill and Quieroz being posted, looking like the cats who'd got the cream.
I wasn't rejoicing when Nani and Ando were landed. They were actually a surprised signing that (almost) nobody (in the Caf) ever mentioned as players they wanted United to sign. And definitely not for the quoted price (15m, and up to 30m).
Now it's a bit different with Owen Hargreaves. He's one that I was looking forward to.
Oh yeah, Hargreaves, well excited when I heard he was joining. As excited as the last time I mowed my lawn.
He didn't travel down so surely he's injured.
A shame he wasn't at the ground, he's always good for a laugh or two during celebrations.
Yep, but a lot of the squad wasn't. Scholes, Young, him, Vidic etc
He'll be there for Swansea!
Only one thing was missing tonight and that was Ando's no look passes.
Havent seen them for quite a while and thank god.
Anderson isn't missing a party!
I'm going to miss Anderson Keep him just for the entertainment factor!
Ando 4, Gerrard 0.
Ando has more European cups than Maradona and Pele combined.
Must have smelt cake from his mansion and decide to make the trip.
Why has Anderson got his top off during the celebrations? Haha.
Anyway, back to reality, he has played less PL games than Scholes and Giggs this season...
Think he is off.
At least he didn't full on get kitted out TR, ala John Terry Even fecking shinguards :deluded:
Ando actually has 6 league titles. He won two in Portugal.
Anderson brought the urgency we lacked in the first half when he came on. Several forward passes that were outrightly brilliant were made by him. He played ever so well.
He looked lively when he came on, don't think he was great defensively but certainly brought some much needed energy and played some excellent passes. He was unfortunate with a reverse to Nani which was just a bit too tough to control.
still alive, amazing
He excels when the opposition is tired, there is lots of space and he is on full energy.
Played well today, but ultimately, a player's report card is accumulated over a much longer period than one match.
So just like 100% of other footballers. How astute.
It's particularly noticeable with Anderson because he's so good ar running into space in midfield.
If he hadn't got the ball caught up in his stride we would might have scored one of the goals of the season orchestrated by him from our own half. Overall he was decent when he came one, did he need the appearance to get a medal?
We're used to these cameos with him, it's not enough I'm afraid. Imagine what a side we'd be with someone who could do that over 90 minutes and regularly throughout a season.
Gundogan, Thiago.. both capable of doing the same sort of things Anderson brings to the table at his best.
People would do well to remember that on here.
Separate names with a comma.
