Fletcher Heartache?

Fletcher Heartache?

The virus that laid Darren Fletcher low and saw him reduced to the almost gaunt like figure that turned out for us against Blackpool last weekend, could have another ramification.

It`s being reported, and also looking increasingly likely, that Darren will be excluded for the starting eleven at Wembley on Saturday.

If that is the case it will give Darren an unwanted hat-trick.

The midfielder has already missed two Champions League finals after being suspended for the clash with Barcelona in 2009 and was an unused substitute back in 2008 against Chelsea.

Darren, obviously aware that regaining his place after his illness was going to be difficult, has spoken to the media about the difficulty he faces getting a starting berth, remarking to the media,

"It`s not for me to decide. All you can do is do your best."

"The lads who have got us there have done really well, so the manager has a lot of decisions to make."


To miss three Champions League Finals after being such an influential part of our midfield, is cruel but we`re sure Darren will bounce back and we`ll leave the final word on the subject to Sir Alex Ferguson`s assistant, Mike Phelan who, whilst talking with the media, has remarked,

"Darren Fletcher up and running and firing on all cylinders gives us a hard job of picking the team. But it`s never easy to come back when you`ve been out for so long."

Football can be such a cruel game!

We need Fletcher quite simply. He provides so much to the midfield and his industry will be invaluable. He was sorely missed last time, we can't have a repeat. Come on Fletcher!!

Oh dear, who's going to kick lumps out of Messi and Iniesta for you now?

The irony of you saying that after De Jong's World Cup final performance against them.

Has de Jong been released from prison yet for his assaults on Xavi and Iniesta during the world cup. Apparently he was or is in a cell with a convicted drug cheat named Toure and an international darts player called Balotelli.

Is it international cliche week around Vital rag or something? because that's all I've heard from Vital rag posters this week. Of course we all know a manure player would never commit such a heinous foul as De Jong... (P.S. Good follow through there, to make sure his aim was true and he caused maximum damage) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cs88nvpF_gw Oh, and here's another one of your little angels for good measure (and yet another great follow through to make sure the player was injured) Pat yourselves on the back lads... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvUfNgxivo8

Destroyed? PMSL!!!! What's that Douglas Hurd said about Geoffrey Howe? "When he attacks you it's like being savaged by a dead sheep" When the intellect of Vital rag member enter double figures, do let me know, it might get more interesting.

City fans with their patronising holier than thou attitude. Typical. Nice attempt at deflecting from the fact that you've been destroyed by pretending that you're not even trying. Fail. There's nothing wrong with being bested you know, well you should know being a City fan an all.
