Man United supporters were delighted with James Garner yet again, who dropped a top-tier performance in the Championship playoff final.
Here at Old Trafford Faithful, we’re massive admirers of James Garner. The English midfielder has been on the fringes of the Manchester United first-team for a few years now, without making that jump.
This season, a couple of managerial changes probably didn’t help Garner’s case, though it was Nottingham Forest where the Birkenhead-born midfielder would spend his season.
From day one, Garner has been outstanding at the heart of Forest’s starting line-up. He’s come up big in some massive games, particularly in the FA Cup.
It has undoubtedly been a year of growth for Garner, who was selected for the Championship playoff final yesterday. Again, the United loanee would run the show.
Garner passed the ball crisply, wasn’t afraid to carry it forward, worked hard defensively and made at least one hugely important tackle. The complete all-round performance.
As you’d imagine, the United fans took to Twitter by the masses to react to the brilliant game Garner played, in the biggest game of his career so far.
For Garner, this has to be just the start. No decision has been made on where he’ll play his football next season, though no doubt the young man will get his chance to prove his worth in pre-season first.
I can see an argument for the 21-year-old to head back to Nottingham Forest for one more season, though there’s a good chance if he impresses Ten Hag, Garner could be firmly within the first-team fold at United.
