RoM 2010 Awards: ‘Who are you again?’ award

The ‘Who are you again?’ award

Nominees: Michael Owen, Wes Brown and Owen Hargreaves
After picking up an injury in the League Cup final in February 2010, where he scored a goal in our 2-1 victory over Aston Villa, it was soon revealed Michael Owen would be out for the rest of the season. He’s played a total of 7 games since, racking up 245 minutes of football and scoring 3 goals.

After having a brief cameo which lasted a couple of minutes against Wolves, Hargreaves has vanished again. Any hopes you had of him ever coming back should be put to one side now. It ain’t going to happen.

Wes Brown had a falling out with the boss during the pre-season tour and has started just 5 games since, 3 of those in the league, and played in a total of 9. He’s not injured, where is he?

Winner: Owen Hargreaves

    Congrats Hargo!

  2. kk says:

    Hargreaves will be back. I have not given up on him. Michael should get more chances

  3. Corea says:

    Fucking great present for the New Year Scott ))
    I believe Hargo will be back. I have to.

  4. DKB07 says:

    The only award he’ll be winning in a long time..

  5. smokebreaksteve says:

    Can I add another nominee to the ‘Who are you again’? award.
    I last saw him at OT in September running up to a tv camera and slobbering all over it. Haven’t heard too much of him since. Think his name might be Gerrard.

  6. manu.76 says:

    Reckon these three should win a special award for the most injuries in the history of football. Perhaps they could share it around during the year….4 months on each others fireplace……

  7. DKB07 says:

    Although I really hope for our sake im wrong. Hes a class act
    Michael has said himself hes getting frustrated and I dont blame him he’s behind in a long queue.
    Arguement or not Wes deserves another chance he’s been solid for us in previous seasons.

  8. Costas says:

    It’s a sad award. Hargo was expected, so I’d give it to Wes. His United career really took a turn for the worse.

  9. dela says:

    It had to be Hargo, though it’s frustrating because he was my favourite player in our squad after Giggsy, Scholes and GNev. I have almost given up on him now- there have been far too many false dawns for me to retain any hope.

  10. AJ says:

    Cmon Scott..I remember you saying The manager should believe in him or he will lose all confidence etc etc..Dont be so rude on him mate..Whats wrong in being optimistic ATLEAST till he is officially a United player !!

  11. smartalex says:

    Wesley Brown, where are you my friend? For you I pine. Rafael owns RB, so I guess that even if you do return to favour, we’ll hardly ever see you again.
    Hargo and Owen are a different kettle of fish. At best they are a reflection of the support and care that is Manchester United. Players we target know that SAF will look after them. Any playing time from either of them will be a help for us, no more.

  12. LackyMUFC says:

    What did Wes and Sir Alex argue about??

  13. wayne says:

    has to be hargo the poor bastard,owen was only ever brought in as a sub off the bench and brown still gets the odd game.

  14. KingOfStretfordEnd says:

    Hargo for me. Wes is more like ‘What happened to you, you had a great 07/08 season’ award.

  15. ethiored says:

    Weslesy Brown. I never expect hargo to play again.

  16. NotoriousRedDevil says:

    Hargreaves end of.

  17. RojoDiablo says:

    Hargo takes it for me…Despite the fact I put him on one of the main reasons we won the Champs Lge.
