'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Rumours Glorious Rumours!

January, and the subsequent reopening of the transfer window, may still be some way off but it doesn`t stop the rumours about possible targets emerging.

Okay, so the quantity might drop off but to keep the public hooked the media just love to dangle the odd carrot in front of its audience.

Today, the inference is that, come January, Sir Alex Ferguson will be pursuing the capture of the Spurs midfielder, Tom Huddlestone. According to the rumour, Huddlestone is a player who Sir Alex has appreciated for quite a while although whether Harry Redknapp would be interested in doing business remains open to question.

A second rumour has United linked with a move for the Aston Villa youngster, Ciaran Clark. However, this one involves the young centre back moving to Old Trafford as part of a deal that would see Michael Owen going to Villa Park, this despite Sir Alex insisting, yesterday, that Owen is going nowhere.

Rumours! Don`t you just love them!

Eh? Just because he's the new Carrick doesn't mean you can swagger in and take him. saying that, there has been a pattern, hasn't there? Bale the new ryan giggs, Modric the new Paul Scholes... Tell you what, have all of them for, oh, I don't know, 150 million. It's a bargain, I tell ya.

I personally really like Huddlestone and could be a decent enough replacement for Hargreaves if he still has no luck with his injury. However, the newspapers surely have something more realistic than constantly linking us with every Tottenham player in their squad.

huddlestone is no better than what utd have,they need a midfielder that can actually beat a man.

I understand what you're saying johnney however, with Hargreaves out until God knows when and Carrick as about as useful as a chocolate tea-pot at the moment the DM area really does need to be addressed. Anderson is heavily criticised for not being the player we expect him to be but at the same time arguably Anderson isn't playing in his natural position at the moment which is the AM (perhaps the one we're looking for) and is being confined to a box-to-box role or a DM which is restricting and wasting his attacking ability. His 1-2 passing is very good his positioning is also very good, he possesses great pace and acceleration, he can cross if needed, play a pass, his shooting needs work and he needs to be more consistent, but he's young and this can all develop further in time. Thus bringing me onto my final point Anderson's confidence is being knocked because he can't exploit these traits as effectively in his current position, so a signing like Huddlestone would leave him with less pressure to feel the need to defend and play his natural role. Furthermore, we would have a very reliable DM who can play the ball very well and also has a mean shot on him.

I dont understand how carrick has fallen so far from grace.2 years back he was a vital cog now he's a chocolate teapot? Anyway I thought you wanted a modric-type.
