The Horror Continues - Anderson Injured

The Horror Continues - Anderson Injured

Anderson is waiting for news on his knee injury which might be serious...

The Brazilian, one of the brightest stars of United's last season, played in his country's World Cup qualifier against Argentina yesterday night.

The challenge that caused the injury came from Liverpool's clumsy oaf, Javier Mascherano - I have not seen the incident so I reserve judgment as to whether he's been just clumsy again or maybe he's still bitter about his dismissal at Old Trafford (and Anderson's brilliant performance even when he was on the pitch).

Fears are that he may have injured his cruciate ligaments which would be a severe blow to United, as we are about to lose Cristiano Ronaldo to an arrogant Real Madrid and we could even lose Carlos Queiroz who is earmarked as Scolari's successor for the Portugal job. Difficult times indeed...

To think that not even a months has passed since winning the Double! But let's not forget it, whatever happens.

not that class
19/06/2008 15:08:00
^^^ you must be blind then.
19/06/2008 15:09:00
I must be blind also because Anderson wasn't brilliant in the Old Trafford game, he was average. He missed several easy passes to team mates in better positions and his shooting was terrible. Where was the brilliance?
19/06/2008 15:19:00
Brazil's doctor is hopeful it wont be too serious: "Anderson felt an injury to his knee, a twist. "However, it doesn't seem so serious. We will be sure only after the MRI scans." "Only after the scans will we be able to make a decision about Anderson's participation in Sunday's match."

As for him not being class? Grow up mate, Anderson will be a superstar and you know that. His first season saw him bully both gerrard and fabregas off the park......VIVA ANDERSON!!!!!!
19/06/2008 15:22:00
Definitely didn't bully Fabregas, Onto a serious matter. You've resigned yourself to losing Ronaldo then? i must say, he truly is a class act, both on and off the pitch. The way he's repaid all of that faith Ferguson paid him after WC 2006...what a cringeworthy berkely hunt. Hope the purple nose one lets him rot in the reserves.
19/06/2008 15:26:00
Shewore, what would you call total domination over 180 minutes then?
19/06/2008 15:30:00
im sorry that was Gerrard i was thinking about, Anderson only played half of the game at OT against arsenal. buts still, for his first ever season in the premier leageu to come out on top over two of the alleged best midfielders in the league is pretty damn impressive. so i will repeat..........VIVA ANDERSON!!!!!
19/06/2008 15:50:00
I was impressed with Andersen at the Grove, he was your best player on the day, but he definitely didn't dominate Cesc. I was at the OT game as well, and to be honest, i can't remember.... so he wasn't that good. And ofcourse he was better than Gerrard, it was a big game ffs.
