Just How Unlucky Can Nani Get?

Just How Unlucky Can Nani Get?

Now really, it can't be easy being Nani. He got few opportunities but plenty of stick last season as he failed to deliver on the promise of the first season. Now, in the first game of the new campaign he scores a brilliant goal within 9 minutes which visibly boosts his confidence and he goes on to excel - but picks up an injury which rules him out of the start of the Premier League campaign.

'We could not put the shoulder back in, so that is the worrying part for us,' said Sir Alex.

'He had done very well, and we are very pleased with his performance.'

But will it set him back too much? I hope the confidence boost will see him through the injury and get him back to the team in good form. Really, he could be huge for us this season with a bit of a luck - he's got the talent, all he needs is a little brain.

Its a shame for him and kind of annoying because now we're reliant on Tosic (who I fear might not be ready for the pace and power of the premier league every week) and Park (who can be an asset off the bench but does not have the quality we need from a starter). Still, perhaps we could try playing Anderson, Carrick and Valencia as a three behind the front two with Fletcher in the DM role. This would guarantee that we dominate the centre of the park but would allow Valencia and Anderson to get wide when necessary.

No offence to him but the game highlighted both his good and bad points. Yes his goal was good but he was also lacking in terms of defensive contribution. He has to improve on his defensive contribution or I can't see Ferguson being impressed. I may be wrong but I would have thought Ferguson would have started Ji Sung Park and Valencia anyway come the first game of the season.
