    Oooooohhhhhhh Shinji Kagawa ‘singing’

  2. bayoRed says:

    Number 10

  3. bayoRed says:

    So was here deployed on the left wing again?

  4. Costas says:

    Good night for our international brigade.

    I also hope that Kagawa will not be overlooked this year and will play at his favorite No. 10 ahead of Rooney.

    I really see that we will be better to sell Rooney (but not to Chelsea). It would be bringing many good things. Beside Kagawa, our strikers (i.e.: Hernandez, Welbeck, Henriquez) will have more chances as well. It’s good for their development.

    Actually, I was hoping Rooney to shine last night for England, so perhaps some clubs with good money from Europe will come to bid for him.

    I hope the nimble footed samurai repeats similar performances for us.. This will be the season to shine for him..

    @Robin, sad to say If Moyes really wants Rooney to stay then chances for Kagawa will be few in that position he will probably be given his Japan role and will remain a bit part player coz of competition from genuine wingers. All this because other players are using politics and/or blackmail to muscle into the starting line up rather than pure hard work.

    How about that boy Honda? WHat an assist to Shini there…

    Apparently, Honda is available fo free in January, and CSKA are asking not more than 5m for him. Only Ac Milan for him at d moment.

    C’mon Moysey, pick that phone up

    I realy tnk Handa will be very great 2 add 2 our squad dis season, pls Moyes get him 4 us.

  10. NBI Red Moyesy says:

    Kagwa is class. Good to see one of our players that missed pre-season is looking sharp! 4sho. Definately my pick for No 10 behind RVP. He is ready, it’s up to the Club to use him for the benefit of the team and I think played through the middle he will be amazing. He adds goals.

    @ bayoRed – exactly, if Rooney stays and starts, players like Kagwa and Danny will not get a consistent run as we know that unless Roo gets what Roo wants we are in for tantrum and circus round 3. My view is still loan Roo out with the ability to call him back if we get a sudden rash of injuries. SAF said he bought Kagwa as competition for Rooney. Last season I thought Kagwa did really well all things considered and scored a hat trick! He just needs to settle into a position. Don’t get people saying he needs to bulk up. He is a strong, talented guy, bulk does not guarantee anything else Heskey would be better than Messi.

    Kagawa is a promising player. I think moyes should give him a parmanent start ahead of rooney bcos he has been a great player also at the confederation cup. Against italy he played a wonderful role.
