Carrick is simply not good enough.........he is not an attacking midfielder or a defensive midfielder, he reminds of Jamie Redknapp average and overated. They could have got Carrick for a fraction of the price years ago same goes for Van Der Saar , Joe Cole, Defoe and Lennon.
Fergie scouting methods need to be question as lately they have produced nothing only Heinze but Stevey Wonder would have seen how could he was.
gone are the days when players like Ole and Ronnie Johnsen have been signed and turned into bargins unlike nowadays with players like Klebersen, Djemba Djemba , Miller, Ricardo and perhaps even Evra. Questions marks still hang over Smith...he gives 100% but is he talented enough?
i agree with everybody who said carrick is overrated. He has had one good season and has no CL experience. Quality players like hagreaves and gattuso would be much better. With this signing we can't be taking any chances. No more klebersons and djemba djembas. We need someone like de rossi,diarra or david albelda
Carrick played very well for Tottenham last season. Problem would be his lack of CL experience and I just don't think he has the ability to dominate games like Keano of old did, or even Vieira when he was at Arsenal.
That said, we're don't seem to have many options, do we?
well honestly i think carrick is overrated, but who knws wat he might turn into, i mean who expected smith to turn inta a midfielder after beeing a striker for leeds for such a long time..........i think that SAF will make something of the lad (carrick)
Smith actually had been used as a midfielder during his time at Leeds, simply because he couldn't be left out of the side. They had too many strikers can had to accomodate them all, and with his attitude, Smith was moved into midfield because they knew he would still give 100%.
And regarding Carrick, reports are suggesting that he will finally complete a move to United for 15m by next week. True or not true, that's what the papers are saying.
i think Carrick is already a good player and being with fergie will help him and get his value higher for the future. He's exalent at any kind of passes and can play good balls into Roony or Saha and do good passes to the rest of the midfield.
But no way do i think we should of paid that much for a player who does not have enough experience.
