FIFTY! If Sir Bobby’s record was easy to break, I wonder why it wasn’t broken earlier (though Gary Lineker did get very close to it more than twenty years ago).
We also heard that James Wilson is going out on loan, which can only be good for him if he starts getting playing time elsewhere; as he should then be ready if United need to recall him back throughout the season. It was made hard with the injuries that I picked up.
“Of course I am always willing to help people no matter how old they are”.
As result, the things that we expect from the “beasts”, dominating every aerial duel, converting every long ball to a threat and out-muscling the defenders to face the goalkeeper one-on-one, suddenly do not happen as often as we thought, rendering the team that is built around them not effective and forceful any more.
“So I hope that he proves to be the absolute gem of a player that United think they have bought, for his own sake and for the sake of English football too”. I think that is what knocked my confidence down. Then you see the papers. I tend to ignore it now.
He added: “I do not know if Anthony Martial was worth €80 million or less but he really reminds me of Thierry Henry by his technique, his physique, and reading of the game.” We can only speculate as to whether he joined Spoons’ Curry Club on Thursday however.
The 19-year-old, who arrived at Old Trafford from Monaco on deadline day in a deal that could reportedly rise to £59million, came off the bench to score United’s third as Louis van Gaal’s men beat rivals Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday.
It is also believed that the Gunners will not match the fee tabled by the Red Devils, with sources claiming Van Gaal overpaid about £20million for his services. He’s going to bring a lot to the French team and I’m very happy for him.
