United - Fletcher Opens Up!

United - Fletcher Opens Up!

With the 2010 / 2011 season fast approaching, Darren Fletcher has been busy chatting to the media.

Darren, an influential member of our squad, talked about a variety of subjects but first he has a few things to say about reaching that 19th league title that`ll beat the record currently shared with Liverpool, remarking,

"This club is all about breaking records and achieving a new status."

"To be the most successful team in the English game would mean everything to the club and to the fans especially."

"They loved it when we equaled Liverpool`s record, so to beat it would mean an awful lot to them."

"As players we want to put right the disappointment of not winning the league last year."


It`ll be a challenge but a challenge that our squad are ready for. Indeed, continuing to answer questions aimed in his direction, by the media, Darren talks about the United way, of how advice is passed down through the ranks, commenting,

"The senior players have been in so many situations such as winning the league and then not winning it, and they know what you need to do to get it back."

"They know what it takes to fly back from a Champions League game and then play at Everton at noon on Saturday."

"They pass on the advice and the likes of myself, John O`Shea, Wes Brown and Wayne Rooney learn from it. Then it`s up to all of us to pass that on to the younger players."


Reflecting on last season though, Darren recalls those times when injuries were prevalent and ground was lost on Chelsea, explaining,

"Me and Michael played three games in central defence - I`d have liked to have seen the result if Chelsea had to play with Lampard and Ballack there. We had to experience that and it wasn`t great."

"It was detrimental tour season, no doubt about it. We had a fantastic squad but even that couldn`t cope with the amount of injuries we had."


Naturally, the subject of Wayne Rooney came up with Darren explaining,

"People are going to look at Wayne and expect the same as last time."

"He demands such high standards of himself that he`ll expect to go and just do that."


A new season, a few friendly fixtures and it`s starting to feel that football has never been away.

And it`s a lovely feeling!

It's nice to hear the teams hungry to get a 19th league title and the sweetest one of them all.
