Just a week or so ago I wrote on here claiming we needed to be more patient with Nani, following a string of frustrating games with the odd flash of something good. We’ve spent a lot of money on the lad and he should be given a fair run in the team before he’s out [...]
Gabriel Obertan impressed for much of his début against Barnsley before looking tired in the final fifteen minutes or so.

He has fallen from the great heights of scoring a penalty in the European Cup final shoot-out to playing irregularly and not playing well. Nani was subbed off at half-time against Tottenham Hotspur a [...]
