Poor, Unlucky Anderson

Poor, Unlucky Anderson

Imagine it. You fall out with your manager. You're considering your future but decide to stay and fight. You show some balls to do it and the manager says 'OK son I'll give you another chance'.

Then you pick up an injury in the sixth minute of your first game and you're out for the rest of the season. That would be horrifying, wouldn't it? Well, that's what happened to Anderson.

The Brazilian is out for the season which means that a) his World Cup dream is over and b) United are extremely short on options in central midfield and Owen Hargreaves MUST be brought back as soon as possible. I don't care about the state of his mind any more, Fergie must press him a little because he's hesitated enough.

But that does not matter one bit to Anderson who had his big chance taken away from him. He would have played a part in the remainder of the season, especially with Carrick out of the Milan game through suspension - and the fact that we will be forced to play with two central midfielders due to lack of available options will show the paucity of resources in that department at the moment.

Anderson still has a future at United but missing the rest of the season does no good for him. Indeed, one must wonder if United get any reasonable offer for him won't they let him go? He hasn't set the world alight here anyway and you may never know if he can fully recover from a knee injury - just ask Owen Hargreaves.

Its a shame, as this would have been a great opportunity for him to get a run.

Its very cruel, he's a great player but he's been so unlucky I feel really sorry for the lad. Hopefully though he'll come back as a better player I just hope we havent seen the last of him
