what Hargro ain't that injury prone player like Saha

i don' think Fergie bought Hargreaves for 17m to sell after two seasons, that would be stupid even if he gets injured too much

Hargreaves will be back and thats for sure
when ever he will be back he will vital and hes an important addition to the squad


Hopefully we see him back versus Everton and Arsenal

i think hargreaves is a fantastic player when he is fully fit but he has been carrying injuries since he arrived at utd , and i would not be suprised if fergie moves him on.
fergie chased hargreaves for 2 seasons before he got his man , he obviously wanted hargreaves has a major player to build the team around ," i think thats how we all pictured it". but with this knee injury that is obviously vastly restricting his appearances for utd , hargreaves has turned into a minor player and the midfield is being altered far too frequently because of this problem .
i reckon if fergie could offload hargreaves and get 75% of the transfer fee back he would jump at it , and in all honesty it would be the correct decision if it happens ,hargreaves ain't no good on the treatment table and i can't see that knee problem being cured :(

Yup! Hargreaves won't be sold unless he has intention to leave MU.
Centre midfield is too important, especially Carrick and Fletcher also have got injured often.

I'd love to see the real Owen Hargreaves, but i really hope to see Wilson Palacios in a united shirt. I really do think he's a midfielder that we currently lack, i think he has real quality ... i strongly doubt Hargreaves is off though, however we do need to see a fit firing Hargreaves sooner rather than later.

Saha......... where's Saha?! If someone meets Louis, please tell him that Owen is missing him.

Tbh, this story is a load of crap imo.

Hargreaves may have a problem with tendonitis, but I think we'll show more patience with him than that.

We will only sell him as a last resort, if ever.

Wouldn't be devastated if he left. we don't really miss him, he's always injured and he's a bit limited as a player. i'd have the fletch over him anyway.

^ Oh you did not just say that.

No, no, no no no.... you did not just rate Darren Fletcher higher than Owen Hargreaves.

Seriously ..... you need to share some of the stuff you;ve been smoking. I want to have some giggles too ;)


Owen has more talent in the curly hairs inside his shorts than Darren Fletcher has in his whole body!

Let's see, Hagreaves can play EFFECTIVELY as a defensive midfielder, a central midfielder, a right back and even as a right midfielder.

His passing is better than Fletcher's (although it couldn't be anything else :) ) he can score from free-kicks, is one of the best crossers of the ball at the club, came in second in time trials only behind Ronaldo.

I'll admit that he has been a bit of a sick-note, but his energy and class really come in handy when he's fit and I have great hopes for this guy.

Don't believe this story, Fergie just said on Friday that Hargreaves isn't going anywhere.

^^^LOL u gotta love RFR's posts on fletcher...the dude really does have a dislike for the kid!!

Anyway i agree Hargo>>>>>Fletcher but fletcher is playing games!!

Problem is Fletch is keeping himself fit and is doing the job when called upon while hargo just stays in the treatment room! Sort it out Hargo!!

Pz!

I don't think we should sell Hargo but it is a bit concerning how much time he has spent out. The Hargreaves of world cup 06 would get into any team in the world and even though he hasn't been fit enough to reproduce that form for us yet we must surely give him at least another season to shake off the tendonitis.

I heard Sir Alex say some time ago that Hargo's Specialist recons that his condition will eventually clear up altogether but then again he would do. It maybe that Anderson will become our main holding midfielder in the next couple of years anyway but it would be good to see the Hargo of old again soon.

There is no way we would sell Hargreaves.

Apart from it making no financial sense - we paid £17m for him, how much would we get for someone who is now older and has a supposedly dodgy knee? - he's a great midfield player with a lot of quality.

He can pass, tackle, shoot, cross and is full of energy. His versatility - being able to play in both full-back positions, as a right midfielder or as a defensive central midfielder - is also a good reason to keep him.

The last I heard, the United physios were claiming that Hargreaves should make a full recovery from the tendonitis, so let's not consign him to the scrap heap just yet!

We've got to give him time to prove his fitness and to try shake off the tendonitis.

If in 3(ish) years the tendonitis is still affecting him, then it would make sense then to sell him, as hes had a lot of time and will be 30 by then.

But selling him now, when we haven't given him a real chance, and when he hasn't come into a midfielders prime age (on average) would be a real waste of time and another more than talented player at United.
