Hargreaves Out For The Season - Predictably
Owen Hargreaves will miss the rest of the season as he's had surgery on his right knee. His left knee will be also operated in a couple of weeks.
Hargreaves's United career has been blighted by the tendonitis problem but he has made a very valuable contribution to the Double success as he performed very well in a host of important games.
Now we won't see him again this season and some fear that his career might be over. I sincerely hope not: it is still possible that from 2009, we'll have a healthy, ready-to-fight Owen Hargreaves. After all, missing a year due to surgery on the knee hardly destroyed Ruud van Nistelrooy...
As for United: well, this season was always going to be tough after the successes of the previous campaign - suddenly it looks uphill for us.
