I think he may be viewed as overrated becase people are comparing him to Keane, who he would be trying to replace. He's not the same style of player, and though I still don't think paying so much for him is right, he can add an extra dimension to our midfield. We still need someone to do what Keano did for us though.
People are saying carrick is overated because he is being tipped as the solution to ALL our midfield problems when he is actually just a PART of the puzzle. He certainly is no roy keane but as long as he is the best michael carrick can be then united fans will be satisfied
Tottenham boss Martin Jol insists he holds no resentment towards Manchester United-bound Michael Carrick. Carrick is set to seal his move to United early next week after both clubs agreed a fee for the England international on Friday. Jol was disappointed to lose Carrick, but bears no grudges against the former West Ham man. "No, not at all," said Jol when he was asked if he felt let down by Carrick's decision to move on.
"Michael Carrick was always a terrific servant to this club and he never moaned even when we told him he had to stay a couple of weeks ago. "The only thing he said was that he wanted to go to Manchester United for the challenge and Man Utd are a terrific club.
Has anyone got any pics of Carrick in his new Man utd shirt please?
Anyway, great signing but very over-priced, like all other English gems out there, the English mark is just unreal. However I feel Carrick needs a partner in the centre. Someone with bags of creativity.
