Hargreaves Update – Trip To Leicester For Specialist Next Week

Manchester United have played without our first choice four central midfielders following injuries and International duty. Whilst Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher are working hard to fill the void, which was illustrated in their play for our goal against Everton today, it can’t be ignored we’re missing the creativity Michael Carrick and Paul Scholes provide from the centre of the park.

With few updates on these players, other than the confirmation that Hargreaves is not for sale, Ferguson has today informed us that Owen is improving, but still set for another trip to the specialist next week.

“We are managing the situation as best we can,” said Ferguson. “It is not an easy one because there is no doubt he is having some pain. But he is getting better. We will give it another week and then probably send him back to the specialist in Leicester. Owen is young enough to recover. The specialist is happy with it. He thinks Owen is on the right way. It is frustrating though. It is such a tender bit at the front of the knee, but I think he will be okay.”

Owen Sahargreaves, anyone?

    i think owen will make it through this injury and turn out to be a very important signing.

    we paid so much for him, we might as well give him time to show us his true class, because there is no doubt he is a class act!

    >> Owen Sahargreaves, anyone?

    i love him so much. i will believe till the end of my days that he will be okay. he just doesn’t deserve this shit.

    hes worth holding on for the big games, i mean how many other players in the world who are availble have the pedigree owen does and still only be in their mid twenties. I think we should consider what chelsea have done and look at another top class central midfielder to cover for an injury-prone player ( e.g palacois) or bring a younster like Possebon through to the first team set up

    1. Hargo is top draw.
    2. No one in the utd team has his fitness and legs when fit.
    3. Brilliant freekick taker ( fulham arsenal )
    4. Brilliant pen take ( champs lge final best pen after ron had missed + only eng player to score in world cup 06 shootout)
    5. Brilliant crosser…something we miss
    6. Brilliant corner taker…something we miss
    7. Versatile…name me another player that plays right back..left back…centre mid…right wing…left wing…
