Totally not golf related but we will chat about pretty much anything. I’ve always been a Manchester United fan and as such at the moment times are increasingly difficult being a Manchester United fan. My dad bought me my very first shirt when I was less than 6 weeks old and from then on, I have always been a red devil. From that I have grown up with many teams, the class of 92, the 98/99 squad, the Ronaldo era and now MOYES.
Without a doubt after Fergie, the period of change was bound to happen, and I fully accepted that, the league, champions league were beyond our reach not just because of our squad but withour Sir Alex we instantly lost that fear factor, that fear factor that won you games in the last 10 minutes and took the very heart of any team! I’m still unsure whether Moyes is the man, some say he is, many say he isnt. In Football these days you cant do what Sir Alex did, he built a club from the ground up, he did everything, these days a manager cant unpack his belongings before he’s on his way again, but this is how the game is going, some would say you need to adapt? Agree, i’m not so sure. I feel managers need time, sure its there job, like any other you need to perform but it takes time, time is key.
Anyway, that isnt the reason for this article. Juan Mata.
A fine player, a touch of purity, graces the ball and has flair second to none. Is he what United really need? in my opinion yes! Okay £40 million pound may be better off spent on a holding midfielder or centre back, but united still dont have a player with RAW ability, a player like scholes that can/could make things happen from anywhere on the football field. Someone who could change things instantly, make things from absolutely nothing, those players are rare.
He is exactly what United need, their midfield is exhausted, laborous and flat. He would add creativity, assists and goals and most of all just give the fans something to hope for. A signing of this calibre whether we trully need him or not shows we are ready to be ambitious again, it shows we mean business, and it shows we will once again re-build a squad to adapt and control once again.
