They’ve been an enigma this season. They’ve played good football, they’ve controlled games and created chances aplenty. This is the football every Manchester United fan wanted to see after the days of LVG’s “possession” game, filled with sideways and backwards passes. This is exactly what every Red Devil wanted to see after David Moyes oversaw the rapid demise of the club in the first season after Sir Alex retired. It’s not quite all that glorious currently though, as their league position remains a bit of a mystery.
One wonders what the reaction will be once he inevitably owns the scoring record for both club and country. Will it be one of grudging respect or will these feats allow fans to realize how lucky they’ve been to see him play?
If you thought last summer saw a lot of transfer activity at Old Trafford, you may want to brace yourself – now that the season is over, there is another whirlwind of activity about to get underway.
