Anderson - Make or Break?
A topic for a decent debate could be something along the lines of - "How long do you give somebody to realise their full potential?"
Now, naturally, a great deal of reasoning would come into such a debate and you could argue that for some players there should be extenuating circumstances applied.
But, as we head towards a new season, many feel that it could be a make or break season for our midfielder Anderson.
Last season was a stuttering one for Anderson with injuries blighting some early patches of good form.
Talking to the press Anderson has admitted as such, commenting,
"For me this season is very important. I need to prove what I can do."
"I`ll still have a laugh with my team-mates, but I know I must be really focussed on my job."
"I really want to show what I can do this season, produce my best and help the team. I know the boss and my team-mates believe in me, I`ve just had bad luck"
"This season it`s very important I don`t have any more injuries."
"I started last season with no problems but then started to feel my knee a bit. It`s just one of those things - some players have injuries and others don`t."
"I`m just focussed on staying fit now and doing my best to work hard and give 100 per cent."
"These things happen. I`m still young and I can`t let myself down because I`m at the best club in the world."
You certainly can`t but with Sir Alex keen to wrestle that Premier League title back from our noisy-neighbours I reckon that anyone who doesn`t produce the goods on a regular basis this time around will be deemed surplus to requirements.
