One drama remains!!!

Posted by Sharath Ciddu on July 2, 2007

The United faithful need not have any sleepless nights having scary dreams where Anderson would not come to Old Trafford next season due to lack or workpermit or one of Nani/Anderson being kidnapped and threatened to sign for some rival. Today Manchester United has officially announced the signings of Anderson, Nani and Kuszczack. They have penned 5 year deals and it is a relief that these signings are completed without any big drama. Nani’s signing was never a doubt as he is an European, but the Brasilian’s work permit was first rejected. But United successfully appealed that he is an extraordinary talent.

United have secured the keeper, brought a high quality backup for the ageing EVDS in the form of Ben Foster. Pique and Evans step in as highly promising defenders to add another layer of concrete to the rock hard defensive wall. Even if the rock is ruptured away in the form of injuries, there is still this concrete wall to be beaten. So hopefully we wont falter in the games like against Milan anymore. Nani, Anderson and Hargreaves add goals, pace, flair and hard tackling ability to the already superb midfield. But one thing remains.. a striker!!

United have Rooney, Rossi, Saha, Smith, Solkjaer and Dong. But with Solkjaer and Dong expected to be peripheral, Saha fragile, Rossi inexperienced (is he?), Smith not upto the level expected… this is the only area where activity is expected And expect it to be finished with some drama.

Copa America – Anderson against Mexico

Posted by Sharath Ciddu on June 29, 2007

I woke up early in the morning eager to watch Anderson in action against Mexico. But Dunga made me wait till half time to help Manchester United successfully get their work permit appeal for Anderson.

Much has been said about this young talent, drawing comparisions with the mercurial Ronaldhino. The talent is definitely there but it is raw and has to be honed. Now that he has got the workpermit SAF can take care about moulding him into a worldclass player. He loves to run at defenders and dribble past them. But he has to develop a sense of awareness of the players around him and learn the art of passing. Training alongside pass masters Scholesy and Carrick would definitely help him. In this game his passing was at times awful, but we forgive him for that amazing cross to Afonso Alves, which could have been converted to a goal.
