I just saw the news about United make an equiry about him, whats everyone think about it? I think his a decent enough player and plays in a position we're gunna need in the future but the chances of Bayern letting him go are low.
I was never overly impressed by Owen Hargreaves. I dont think he would be a good replacement for Keane. To me Gerrard would be the best replacement, but the chances of that happening are pretty slim. And that's an understatement. I would choose players like Parker over Owen Hargreaves anyday.
Our CMs: Keane, Scholes. Back up: Fletcher, Phil Neville. This should have been enough when it comes to back up. If you're gonna bring someone in, bring in top quality who could challenge Keane or Scholes for a 1st team place. Don't bring in another player in the 'whoops, another recent CM clanger from me (fergie), he's turned out to be so shite he won't even warm the bench regularly' mould a la Kleberson, DJDJ, and MAYBE Miller (maybe needs more time). Add Hargreaves and we'll have 8 frigging cms of whom too many already don't even make the bench.
If someone sees any sort of planning or foresight in this CM mess, pls explain. :stoned: :groan: :ass: :rollani:
you a defensive midfielder who is going to tackle hard and do a lot of running. But at the same time, you need someone who can at least move forward if need to. Keane was a player who could do that well. put in hard tackles, help out the defence etc..but he could pass the ball well and he wasnt too shabby infront of goal either.
so players like gattuso i dont think would be good. he is a player who tackles and does a lot of hard work, but i think he needs someone to do teh passing for him and really needs others in midfield to do a lot. hence, pirlo, kaka and seedorf.
I think United need a player like Vieira. Defends great and has the ability to push forward. unfortunately you wont get him, but you need someone with his characteristics.
Hargreaves however would still be a good player to get overall. he is versitile and can give united something different in terms of formation if need be.
Hargreaves is a good player I think some of us here are guilty of under-rating him. He's always been a consistant utility player however, he is not the player we are looking for. We need a world class or potentially world class CM.
