MUT all-time great
Nice to see him not struggling. Hopefully he can piece together a few good games. Then there's something to be excited about.
I think it was with Nev as it was with Giggsy. The pride and honour of the club. Thats what winners do, they step up and show class when they have to.piazza said:Nice to see him not struggling. Hopefully he can piece together a few good games. Then there's something to be excited about.
Cappy said:Exactly...it is a promising start but lets not get carried away...
First off, I absolutely hope he comes back to form and has the ability to string a couple of great performances, but with his age and time off, I do not expect it. I imagine he will be a solid performer, with an occasional gaffe (that he was becoming prone to even before the injury troubles).babysenorita said:I think no one is being too carried away, but with him looking promising, it gave us hope especially when many thought he is done and dusted. He is our captain after all and despite having Brown and Rafael around, the extra joy of seeing him playing well on the pitch after all these bad starts is just great.
I've always said that all he need is time, yeah its just one game but if he can do as good as that for one game, then i live with hope that he can do it again.

I have to agree with you there actually.Cappy said:Not trying to be a "Debbie Downer" but it isn't like Chelsea threw the kitchen sink at Nev. He played well with what he faced (nothing more could be asked of him), but Chelsea mainly attacked through the middle. Please don't say I am slating his performance, but I just don't think we can say he is back, or that he is world class based on this performance. It was encouraging though.
Yep.Davey said:I doubt we will ever see the Nev back to his best, I think most of us know that but he can still be a good performer though.
