Carrick: I See No Reason To Leave

Carrick: I See No Reason To Leave

Incredible, this media age: Michael Carrick had a few bad games at the start of the season after three years of excellence - and he's been touted for a return to Spurs on the back of these games! Fortunately, he's not interested in that.

'You never know in football but I see no reason to leave at all,' he said.

'I am delighted to be here. It is as high as you can get.'

With his form improving steadily he's a key man at United again - why would he think about leaving? How many of United's key players signed for Spurs in the last 20 years? I can think of only one, Teddy Sheringham, who was 35 when he returned to his former club after an excellent 2000/01 season at the end of which he won PFA Player of the Year award.

But Carrick is 28, he's an important part of the team and it's clear that he's very much in Sir Alex's plans. No reason to leave.

I have always felt that his best partner was D.Fletcher.He doing all the dirty work in front of the defence would allow M.Carrick to focus on the creative work,plus make those forward runs and score goals which we have only seen in glimpses.

I still feel that the midfield is a little weaker that in recent years and even with the potential of a return of Hargreaves, I wonder if SAF will looks to spend big in this area. where will that leave Carrick? Sating that I dont expect him back at Spurs.

Does SAF look like spending big on any part of the team? I might be proven wrong but with all his bullishness about our youngsters I can't see him buying central midfielders for big money. A striker IS a possibility as Owen is clearly only a stop-gap solution but in my opinion he won't buy a midfielder: Fletcher and Hargreaves should cover the DM position, Fergie has faith in Anderson (so have I) and recently he's talked about a possible central role for Obertan in the future. Ljajic is coming in as well.

What a cosy mood we all are in today. You don't want him to leave, we don't want him back........and everyone is happy. Should be an interesting game tonight, about 5 of your youngsters agains about 5 of our backups :) Good luck!

As much as I'd love to see someone of Daniele De Rossi's quality in our midfield - thats unrealistic in terms of price and expecting him to leave Roma. We could throw masses of money at tottenham for palacios one day, but in truth, if we can get hargreaves fit we shouldnt bother. For me, our midfielders are pretty much as good as they can be without being in the world class bracket. So unless we get someone who is of the Xavi, Iniesta, Essien, Gerrard, Lampard or Cesc level there is little point buying anyone. Additionaly, I think that if we can get Hargreaves, Fletcher and Carrick fit and get some consistency out of Anderson we are strong enough. We also have scholes, O'Shea and Valencia who can all fill in there. I also think it would be selfish and short sighted to bring in another central midfielder when the likes of Gibson, Possebon, Petrucci and Pogba will want to be given their chance to shine in the short, medium and long-term future.

sure spurs fans wouldn't want him back. I bet if he ever became available tottenham would be he first team to make a bid for him and why wouldn't they he's a very classy midfielder, good in defence and attack.

Tuscan3000, do you think Possebon has what it takes? I think gibson is definately ready to be a bench player for us at the moment. Petrucci and pogba are way too young to hope for anything out of them
