That's What United Have Signed Valencia For

That's What United Have Signed Valencia For

Finally, Antonio Valencia came out of his shell and produced the kind of display which convinced Fergie to pay 15.25m for him. The Ecuadorian winger made a slow start to the season, usually seeming content to simply keep the ball and pass it to the nearest teammate but he finally shouldered some responsibility today.

He, along with Ryan Giggs, was United's best player in the 2-1 win over Bolton and his excellent goal in the first half set him up for a great second half showing where he really should have scored again and could have claimed a few assists as well with a bit of luck.

It wasn't a perfect performance, obviously - his reluctance to use his left foot is very, very annoying and what's worse, makes him predictable, it's enough to show him on to his weaker foot and he will simply pass the ball back to the full back or the nearest central midfielder. But finally he performed like a man who is serious about becoming a key player at one of the top sides in Europe. With the Liverpool game looming, it was the best possible time for him to come out of his shell. Hopefully he won't withdraw there again.

One swallow does not a summer make. Based on his performances at Wigan, you should now be expecting at least 2-3 goals from him - Pers season.

Yeah - took his goal well, but still not proved his worth yet, but Berba is getting better and better

9 league games people. 9. Judge him at end of the season. He will score more look at Carrick 1 goal for Spurs in 200 odd games 6 (I think) in his first season at United. The more Valencia plays the better he'll be for us. It can't help that every man and his dog are looking at him through Ronaldo lenses.
