'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ferguson Backs Fletcher

The news, yesterday, informing the football world that Darren Fletcher was out for the remainder of the season after an operation shocked some of us.

But, thankfully, it looks as if those inevitable scurrilous rumours that swept around the gossip columns were just trash talk with Sir Alex, at his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to London, commenting about Darren,

We expect him to be back in July. He will need time to recover from the operation."

"But this will improve his prospects. He`s had to change his game."

"When he played this season he wasn`t the Darren Fletcher we knew."

"He was sitting in front of the back four and he did that very well. That could be his role in the future."

"When he does come back - and I`m sure he will - it will be in a different role."


Good news for all those who were concerned.

Wish I was as optimistic as Fergie about this. Unfortunately to me this has the Hargreaves written all over it. Yet again we're losing a key player who's fundamental to the defensive balance of our game in midfield and the overall balance of the team. An unsung hero who never looked for the limelight he deserved, I remember when he racked up better defensive stats than Macherano, who is held in high esteem as one of the best Holding mids in the game today. His industry, team work, attitude and leadership will be sorely missed as much as his defensive ability and surprisingly good crossing. My concern is Fergies optimism about fletcher's return will mean the team will be deprived of the fletcher-esque player we need and as such the fletcher-shaped hole in the team will remain un-replaced and unfilled until he finally succumbs to his illness and realises there won't be a comeback. I do hope that if I'm unfortunately proved right the club give fletch and ambassadorial role at the club.
