No Hargreaves Comeback, Of Course

No Hargreaves Comeback, Of Course

Amid all the euphoria after our contemptous dismissal of AC Milan one news item almost slipped by without notice: Owen Hargreaves won't make a return to action just now as the club had confirmed he was going to miss tonight's reserve league derby.

The game was played, it ended 2-2 and of course Hargreaves took no part in it. Club officials claimed it was because it did not fit into his fitness programme. Yeah, right. In proper English that means it's yet another setback and his chances of ever making a comeback are more slender than ever.

Disappointing? Yes. Surprising? Unfortunately, no, not in the slightest.

When FOOTBALL MATCHES no longer fit into your training schedule as a PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLER, its pretty much the end of the line.

For me Owen Hargreaves articles now have as much credibility as stories about the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

It's kind of becoming a no-brainer. I hope this doesn't mean we saw the last of him two years ago.

Its a really sad news,I guess we will have to dip in the transfer market to find a player like fletcher,someone like a veloso who can play in many positions.

Looking more into it, it seems he needed a checkup before playing, and that clashed with the match - he would be better off playing in reserves for rest of season and regain his fitness
