Carrick is worth the money payed for him.

Hargreaves has the quality to be worth the money we payed for him.

Not a chance on Earth Park is worth anything over £10m, regardless if he's English. Ashley Young is twice the player he is, and Villa would bite your hand off for £20m.

How is Heskey anything like Kuyt or Park :confused:

He doesn't run around chasing the ball all game, and his workrate isn't his main strength. Heskey doesn't play for his workrate.

if you count the number of times he falls on his arse ANY game he plays you will lose count.
True he's a lump, but whoever palys alongside him scores goals. And that my friend is a fact :D

No coincidence that Heskey plays and his partner scores.

I think you are all a bit harsh on park , he is a lot better than you lot are making out.
by the time this thread is over you will have him down as a championship player , leave the lad alone , i would not swap him for downing no way
Agree, Downing's a **** and only looks good in a very poor Boro side.

Hmmmm...easy said, atleast park gets to play for Man utd! :whistling:
Why does that mean he's a better player?

Where did i say he's a better player?? :eek:


All i said is he reminded me of Downing if he was an english player because as much as they are good, they just arent good enough but yet, park being park, he has the advantage of playing for man utd.:rolleyes:
Fair enough.

In terms of versatility yes..:p
Actually incorrect. I read somewhere that Gerrard is the best player to have played in every position for his club.

i really believe that if park was English he would be worth double his value at the moment id rate him at maybe about 5 million so if he was English id rate him at 10 million i think its almost a fact that(most) English players are over rated for me an example of this would be i believe that Vidic makes Rio look like a better player as he looks kind of shaky when playing with Evans but when Vida plays with Evans were more solid! i also think that Carvalho makes John Terry look a better player too!

so for me English Park>S.Koren Park
I'm not talking about his value, as I too believe that English players are inflated.

The point I was making is, is that if he was an English headless chicken, would he be near the team or would he been transferred (let's consider him being a youth team product)? I think a major reason why he is part of the squad is because of his marketing puposes in Asia.

(I'm not saying he's shit and deserves to get rid, because he is very consistent and is an honest player and puts in a good shift when needed)

Basically this.

Park is a wonderful player, so important to the team. People criticise him for his attacking side, but that isn't what he'a about. He's so much more, something some people do not understand.
A winger's job is to attack and create chances, particulary by crossing. Defensive work comes second.

Same with a full back. A full back's job is to defend, and to defend well. Attacking comes second.

and what?
As it stands with the players we have what do you suggest we do?
cos Nani does neither, Tosic isnt ready, Giggs plays centrally now.....

Thats why I think we miss Hargo so much. he could play right side and ronaldo on the left. problem solved.
I'm not saying we should get rid of Park, he's a good squad player, and this isn't a thread for whether Park should be a Manchester United player.

Sownak said: "People criticise him for his attacking side, but that isn't what he'a about."
I said that if that isn't what "he's about" then why the **** does he play as a winger, and especially at a club which has based itself on great attacking wingers for years. Personally, I think Park has improved a lot this season, but I'm baffled why he gets so many games - especially in games where his workrate and defensive side isn't needed.

People say to help out Rafael, when the kid plays. But Park plays left side for most of the game anyway.

If he was English he wouldn't be here, he would have been very overrated and ended up going to somewhere like Inter or Madrid for £20something milion getting about as many games as he does with us now.

so no.
No he wouldn't. If he was English he would be playing for Fulham or Middlesbro.
