Putting the Record Straight!

The red-top press carries articles today that relate to those players that have been released by their clubs for one reason or another.

Amongst the plethora of names is that of Owen Hargreaves.

The tabloids take great delight in pointing out that Hargreaves has cost Manchester united circa 30 million when the initial transfer fee and salaries are taken into account.

They also harp on about Hargreaves having played for only 11 minutes since September 2008.

All are points that we`ll not argue with.

But what they neglect to point out that Hargreaves, when fit, was lauded as the best player in his position and that the former Bayern Munich ace has been extremely unfortunate when it comes to injuries.

Hopefully, that`s the record put straight!

I still don't undestand why we didn't just offer him a year extension on a pay as you play contract. His knee tendonitis appeared behind him and his 2 injuries since have been nothing but naivety on our behalf and pure misfortune. The thigh strain was from rushing him back into action too soon, Fergie even admitted it was a poor decision on his behalf. The shoulder injury could happen to any player and it's completely independent of the other 2 injuries. Who knows what could've happened if we had both him and Fletcher available for the last two Champions League finals against Barca. Undoubtedly one of the best DM's in the world on his day and whilst most will remember him as being a flop signing due to his injuries I for one, and i'm sure I speak for the entire United fanbase when I say he will be remembered for his contribution towards our 07-08 campaign. Sorry to see you go Hargo.

I second No7's comment.
Kanchelskis
he released him because we dont need him
strangybob
I think he would of had quite a few medical tests before we released him and was probably going to be out even longer.
rooneyisgod
strangy i don't think it's a case of not needing him, if anything we're in a dire need of a Hargreaves but I feel the Glazers were counting there penny's. Perfectly jusitfied though but I feel they made the wrong decision.
TheFamousNo7
He cant be relied on so I understand why they've let him go. But I agree that whatever we paid for him was worth it based on his performances and trophy haul in 07-08.

Of course it was worth it, this is U*d we're talking about, they do no wrong and to suggest otherwise would just be bitter.;-)
