2 years we chased hargreaves thats along time to chase a squad player . I for one expected after a 2 year chase that owen would be the main man in our midfield but it has'nt happened . If we look at the facts he has had a rough time with injurys but its been 2-3 months since then . 18 Million is alot of money and at this present moment im not sure whether alex thinks he is up to the task . If we were to look back at the season I'd bet owen has been on the bench more than off it . Hargreaves was meant to be our blocker wall infront of the defence but many have questioned whether he has the control or the pace in his play to keep up with our slick passing .
