What's Up With Anderson And Nani?

What's Up With Anderson And Nani?

Now am I missing something or there hasn't been anything about why Nani and Anderson haven't been involved in the United squad for the games at Stoke and against Middlesbrough? There was no word about them being injured, they're not suspended and there's just silence.

Neither of them set the world alight this season after promising debut campaigns but it seemed Fergie still trusts them, especially Anderson who started to show improving form as the season advanced. Surely Darron Gibson isn't rated ahead of him?

It might be some disciplinary issue, and that would explain the silence of the club. For I don't think they've been simply rested for two games - as I said, they are sure better options to have on the bench than Rodrigo Possebon and Darron Gibson, talented though both are... At least they haven't been charged with anything... yet.

I think Nani is getting special training for his ability to read the game better which he does poorly at times.

paulinho's comment is spot on. nani does screw up in the final quarter of his run, but he's still more dangerous than giggs or park. the first one simply complains all the time and passes like superman is playing along side him, whereas park spends all his time and energy trying to hold the ball without hitting the ground. He MIGHT get a pass through sometimes. Give nani a chance fergie.. not 10 minutes every match. Its only logical that if a player enters the pitch in the 80th minute, he will try silly things and extremely difficult ones to impress or to get something out of them.even tevez did it when he wasnt "feeling confident". nani does need a lot of improvement, buthis runs are dangerous, his crosses are good and he has one hell of a shot. he needs to play as well. i'm afraid there might be something going on and Tosic is his replacement.
