Bye Bye Kieran Richardson

Posted by Sharath Ciddu on July 17, 2007

The Bentley boy Richardson left Old Trafford with Stadium of Light providing the ray of hope to resurrect his career. It remains to see if he can make justice to his talent, which was never a doubt (well both extremes indeed 😀 ). Its the application that lacks and also the presence of mind, which he appeared to have always left in the Bentley back home. He definitely had a good spell at West Brom which was responsible to his England call up, but since his return to Old Trafford, except “that”goal against Charlton (the first video when you scroll down), he has been nothing short of pathetic. He is premiership quality no doubt. But unlike the man he was supposed to replace, Ryan Giggs who is a world beater, this Big Brother cannot survive in a big team. He is erratic at delivering the set pieces, cannot pass the ball to people who are in better positions, and with luck at his side would sent the ball to the back of the net at times.

It is surprising to see someone pay £5.5 million for him, though he can be a big fish in a small pond (no offense to West Brom or Sunderland here). This effectively means that United has bought Giggsy’s replacement in Nani for 7-10 million pounds which is pretty cool, considering that Nani is being touted as the next Ronaldo.

Thank you Richardson for all the better things you have done for United (Excuse me if you cannot find anything other than the price he was sold for), and we wish you all the best for your career under the man who has blasted you a year and a half back. Between, I think this is the best piece of business by Sir Alex ever, even beating the Cantona’s, Schmeichel’s and Keano’s.
