After reading Clev will be out until Christmas, Hargo's 90 minutes for City (where's he gone now) and what seems to be a few seasons now of having a lot of injuries around the squad, I was wondering if it might not be coincidence. I'm sure United had some of the best doctors and physios possible, but if it was just something subtle in the training regime that maybe made players more susceptible to injuries?
Probably nothing in it. but anyone know if Clev has had recurring injury problems before? Or the twins before we signed them?
This current bunch won the league last season and will do so again this season.
Scholes was a bit part player last season so losing him isn't a blow. Yes we've had injuries but there's no guarantee that any new signing would have the impact required. We have good young players and they should be given a chance. Chequebook management doesn't guarantee long term succes
The list continues to grow...
Da Silva twins (thought I saw one on the bench, but if he was fit surely he would've played)
and it's not the first time this has happened over the past few years. I read somewhere that Young averaged 36 PL games a season for Villa and Hargreaves has played more for City in a few months then he did for us in a few years.
Thank God we've only got to play Blackburn next.
P.S Owen as well, but whatevs...
Hargreaves? Are you sure about that?
Think so, he's started 2 games for them and made 1 sub appearance, in his last 2 seasons with us I think just 1 start (lasted 5 mins) and 2 sub apps.
