Ah how I look forward to your 6 week campaign of hate against him between his signing and his actually kicking a ball for us.

I didn't see the first leg of Bayern Milan but in the second leg Hargreaves did put in a lot of work but they were useless going forward.

I know they lost 2-0 at home but they were nowhere near as bad as United last night.

im not saying that but people are talking about him like he is maradona.

after what shining in a embarassing england midfield because he actually goes to try and get the ball...

if you watched him in this champions league campaign you will see that he isnt the best thing since sliced bread.

yes,i repeat yes we need a combatitive midfielder but hargreaves isnt the 2nd coming ffs.

yesterday we were beat by a better team who were full of the sort of experiance giggs and scholes have in the league.

hargreaves may have ran around but if you ask milan what midfielder did a better job agaisnt them over two legs fletcher or hargreaves the answer will shock you.

Some of you will not agree with this but Gray was right when he said United missed a player like Roy Keane last night.

Last year away to Chelsea when they were rolled over was the same, United need someone who can grab a hold of the game from midfield when everyone else around them is underperforming.

the same sort of work fletcher put in yesterday.

we were also useless going forward.

how many times did fletcher pick up the ball and try and move in forwards but saw no one showing him where to put it so he was running with it trying to make an opening for the pass.

im not saying fletcher is better than hargreaves im just saying yesterday we were beaten by a better team.

how can we improve on it?

id say we should have genuine width on both sides not just one outlet but then again i know nothing about football.

I'm not saying he's Maradona or the 2nd comming or anything like that. What he is, is a very quick, energetic midfielder who gets around the park well, tackles well is a good passer and can take set pieces,. I think he'll make a very positive difference to United and he is gonna sign so we better get used to it.

Vio, you can't compared 2 players from 2 completely different teams. Hargreaves gets forward for Bayern for United he would do the job he does for England and he does it in style. Mascherano has 1 good game and suddenly he's the best ever and miles better than any proven midfielder. I've heard that before.....
