Hargreaves in City Shock

Hargreaves in City Shock

Well that was one we never saw coming!

After expecting Owen Hargreaves, recently released by Manchester United, to join either West Bromwich Albion or Aston Villa, the Canadian born England international only goes and bags himself a contract over at our noisy-neighbours.

Now 30 years of age, Hargreaves, as we all know, has had a torrid time with injuries over the past three seasons, racking up a mere 125 minutes of first team action. However, after concentrating on getting fully-fit and parading his fitness on a series of YouTube videos Hargreaves has passed a medical at City and has signed a one year deal.

Naturally delighted to get a deal, Hargreaves enthused to the media yesterday,

"I`m going to blow people away. I`m coming back believing I can return to the level I was at before."

"My body feels great and my knees are perfect. I`d like to think I can play 40 games this season. I hope to be back in the England side for the European Championships next summer. You have to have ambition."


Although Owen has moved to our noisy-neighbours, I doubt whether I`m in a minority here when I say that I wish him well and I truly hope that he has shaken off those injury nightmares.

Wow! Hat's off Red Boy. It seems your fellow U*d fans aren't of the same mindset from the nonsense I've been reading about this deal the last 24 hours.

Best of luck Hargo. Can't help but think though that signing for City when they have Toure, Barry, De Jong and Milner who can all operate as a CM/CDM won't help him achieve what he wants to achieve. He won't be getting sufficient game time to break back into the England team or find his best form again. If he can find his best form and stay fit there's no doubt in my mind he'll be playing for City week-in week-out as Hargo is World Class. Slightly gutted that City signed him on the deal I wanted him to resign for us on. In Fergie I trust, though I can't help but hope the club was wrong for letting him go as I do like Hargreaves and would love to see him playing some of the lovely football he played, after what his been through he deserves it.

Biggest shock is that the mighty reds didn't get in another midfielder themselves - all those "Sneijder is at Manchester airport" ITK's must have a lot of egg dribbling down their faces! Oh well, Felcher, Carrick, Anderson and Cleverly it is - not bad on paper, but can't see you winning the league with that 4 just yet.
