Anderson to Step Up!

Anderson to Step Up!

Having Wesley Sneijder in our squad would have provided us with the services of a world-class operator.

But, with his arrival looking less likely by the day, Sir Alex Ferguson is looking towards one of his current squad to step into the breach and fill the void left by the retirement of Paul Scholes whilst also providing the skill-set Sneijder may have brought, with that man being Anderson

Speaking about jus tthat, Sir Alex is quoted as having remarked,

"The boy Anderson is a fantastic talent and we expect him to be a key player this season."

"He has a good football knowledge. He understands the game well and is always talking to me about tactics and the technical side of the game."

He has made a tremendous improvement and he is going to get a lot better. He scored five goals for us last season and if he gets eight or nine this season it will be a huge asset."

Nothing like putting a bit of pressure on the lad is there!

Anderson is a great talent and can be so influential on his day. More consistency from him and we may have the solution to our midfield problems. He's one of few AM's who can handle a more generalised CM role and fit into the 4-4-1-1 formation we've adopted. I really hope this season proves his breakthrough season.

Anderson is in no doubt a good player, but we are talking about filling the boots of a great, world class, consistently brilliant player in Scholes and I just do not see Anderson ever being capable of being that good over a whole league and European campaign. I would love him to suddenly step up to the plate and be a great player, it would certainly save us a lot of money but the fact remains that if he were that good he would of taking Scholes' place in the side not come into it when he retired. If and when we do sign a new midfielder Anderson will still get a lot of game time when you remember that we have lost not just Scholes but Gibson looks to be on his way, Giggs is 60 something and Carrick is well, just Carrick. What we need though is not just a creative midfielder but one who can score as well as create goals, a great set piece taker and one who is not afraid of being tackled hard and in fact would relish the intensity of the English game. I can only think of one player who would fill all of them criteria and I still believe, probably more in hope, that we can still get him and after talking to some Inter fans yesterday they themselves feel that it's 50/50 that Sneijder stays at Inter . Either that or we look forward to a season of seeing our centre midfield struggle.
