Our loss to the hands of Stoke City blew away any optimism that was brewing due to the win against Cardiff and the signing of Spanish playmaking maestro Juan Mata. The record signing has had two solid if not spectacular games in the famous red jersey producing two assists in two games averaging an assist every 87 minutes.
Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has deactivated his Twitter account after Reds fans hurled abuse at the 24-year old from Basingstoke. Earlier in the week Cleverley admitted that he felt hurt that United fans didn’t understand his game, and now the abuse must’ve gotten too much for the central-midfielder.
New year, same old United. Another limp and lifeless performance leaves United 11 points of the pace and facing the very real prospect of no champions league football next season. Ultimately we ask who takes the blame for United dropping more points at the half way point of the 2014 season than the whole of the 2012 and 2013 seasons?
Tom Cleverley has spoken out about his current form for both club and country, and although the midfielder is enjoying a good run of games at present, the 23-year old is under no illusions about the fact that he’ll have to keep upping his game if he wants to feature regularly domestically as well as internationally.
Roy Hodgson has named his starting XI for the World Cup qualifier against San Marino, and has named four United players amongst his starting line-up, Rooney will lead the line alongside Tottenham’s Jermain Defoe, with Ashley Young playing on the wing, Tom Cleverley in the centre and Chris Smalling at the back.
There has been a lot of talk about the Torres sending off since the game yesterday, and in my view, he was lucky to make it to the 68th minute after a high boot on Tom Cleverley.
The season is only 3 games old and already, we are desperately waiting to see the next United game whilst we have to wait for the latest round of International matches to take place. However, until we get to see United take on Wigan on Saturday afternoon, we have been able to see an abundance of United players in action for their respected countries.
Roy Hodgson has today named his 22-man squad for the international friendly against the team who knocked us out of the European Championships, Italy. After a two year absence from the England fold, midfielder Michael Carrick has been recalled, but for me this decision should’ve been taken two months ago.
Stuart Pearce named his 18-man squad this afternoon and as widely rumoured, Welsh wizard Ryan Giggs is named as one three over-age players. 23-year old central midfielder Tom Cleverley also makes Pearce’s squad.
