Anderson - Make or Break?

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.

Really is make or break and I'd say he's lucky to still be here this year. The poor sod has had a really stop and start career so far with showing great promise but unfortunately always getting injured as soon as he gets going. If he can't get over it then he must go, if he does get past it and start fulfilling his potential then he stays and we'd be much better off for it and won't need another midfielder.

Have said before Anderson needs to step up what happened to the young lad who dominated midfield against Steven Gerrard in his prime. He has had problems with injurys admittedly but he always looks overweight and lethargic when he returns. This season he really needs to showcase the talent we all know he has.
