Carrick Pleased... So Am I

Carrick Pleased... So Am I

Michael Carrick scored only one goal (against Aston Villa) so far but that does not concern the midfielder who is happy with his own contribution.

Many criticised Sir Alex Ferguson for spending a whopping 14 million on a player who was not worth the half of that amount according to some pundits. Of course, Sir Alex and Carrick proved them wrong as the stability and consistency of the former Tottenham man were invaluable so far.

Carrick himself is pleased with his own performances despite that he scored only one goal.

'If we were struggling and needed to score goals, maybe I would be a little bit more concerned about the need to chip in,' he told MUTV.

'But we have a nice balance at the moment. Everyone else has been scoring pretty freely over the past month so the goals situation does not really bother me.

'I have other jobs to do, so it is not much of a concern at all.'

Carrick revealed he gained very much from signing for United.

'I am improving,' he said.

'I wouldn't say there was a massive difference in the way I am playing compared to Spurs but there is one.

'I am just enjoying being part of this fantastic side. It feels like everyone is playing unbelievably well, so it is understandable I have a lot of confidence.

'It makes it a lot easier to pick people out because you have so many options.'

I have to ask: where are Carrick's critics now? I believe his midfield displays were very important for United. Scholes is brilliant again, Ronaldo is unstoppable, Vidic is a rock at the back but for our fine form a lot of credit must go to Carrick and everything he brough with himself: work rate, passing, vision, good positioning, quality defending and most importantly, consistency.
