That player isn't Hargreaves I'm afraid. I don't know many midfielders around today that have the personality. Gattuso perhaps but other than that? There's an awful lot of 'quiet' players around these days which is fine but in tough games, especially the away games, you need that bit extra especially when things are going against you.

They kept on about Juve in 99 but I didn't see the point, not one of the players that turned out yesterday could put in a performance like Roy did. Rooney and Ronnie may do one day but last night came too soon for them IMO.

Out: Mickey, Gabby, Richardson, Fletcher, O'Shea, Brown, Smith, Saha.
In: Evans, Pique, Rossi, Hargreaves, Nani.


Good subtle WUM there El - I know people used to accuse us of being a club full of right backs but leaving just G Nev and Evra capable of playing there is a step too far
