United - Unveiling our Newest Sensation!

United - Unveiling our Newest Sensation!

Monday can`t come around quick enough.

England play Mexico this Monday and the fixture gives many of us the chance to see, for the first time, in the flesh, our new striker - Javier Hernandez.

Hernandez, a mere five feet seven inches tall, has a reputation as a goal poacher with many likening his work to that of a United hero - Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.

Whether Hernandez can make the transition from Mexican football to the Premier League remains to be seen. But he does come with a glowing reference from somebody we`ve tangled with many a time in the past - Adrian Heath.

Heath, currently working across the pond in American football, has this to say about our 21 year old capture,

"He is known as the Little Pea but you don`t think of him as being small because of how he plays."

"You`ll watch him and think 'He`s going to score any minute` - and sure enough he`ll pop up with one."

"He has great movement, scores plenty in the air and always seems to be able to get a toe on the ball ahead of the defender."

"But he will need time to bed in and if there`s a good place to do that it is United, because they have the talent in the squad to be patient. I`m sure he will be a big hit."


Monday could be a revealing experience!

I can't wait for this match.I'm just hoping he does well if he gets a chance.Unfortunately here in India,we won't get to see this match,so hopefully Vital Man Utd will post a match report of this game.It would be appreciated.

I think most people will probably write him off after monday night. For a start, he'll be up against four of the best defenders in the premier league - if he manages to out do them - it will be worrying for every premier league defense - but more importantly worrying for englands world cup chances. In all honesty, I just cant see him being good enough to get the best of Rio, Terry, Cole and Johnson - very few strikers are .

Second, and most importantly - if mexico play in a similar way to how they've played in their last few friendlies he'll be completely isolated for the whole game. Apart from Guardado and Dos Santos - no one in the mexican team has any vision and they cant pass or deliver a decent cross.

I'd love to see him do something amazing, in what will be a tough test for him - but I think its a big ask.

This guy surely has pace and is always looking to find some gaps in the opposition defence,which is something I always like in a striker.I just hope he can cope with the pressure of being a Utd player because he seems to have the skills.A good WC will surely give him a lot more confidence and confidence is something that can make or break a player.This is where SAF will play a key role and help him out whenever he is down.

I agree with Tuscan,it would silly to judge him so early.You have to give new players some time to adjust and when they are young u have to give them a lot more time and that is why I said most of our young players are lucky to have SAF as the manager.He will give them a proper chance to express themselves.

So I take it that Berba is leaving you guys this season then?

No, he's staying apparently. 5 strikers. Rooney, Berba and Owen - with Diouf and Chicharito being introduced slowly. However, if Mourinho decides to make Benzema available (no idea why he would to be fair) then berbas place might be under consideration.

I'm looking forward to see him playing in United colours this might give us an idea of what were in store for.

Thats the reason I left him out because I do feel he will help his son out at PNE.
