Fletcher Waiting Patiently

Fletcher Waiting Patiently

Darren Fletcher, once a hate figure at Old Trafford, believes we are capable of winning many, many trophies. And he's ready to bide his time in the hope of playing a part in it.

The 22-year-old, one of the outstanding performers of Scotland's impressive though ultimately failed Euro 2008 qualifying campaign has only started two games for United this season, both against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.

However, it seems that this situation does not frustrate the man who is ready to admit that with Hargreaves, Scholes, Carrick and Anderson around, it was always going to be difficult to get a game here.

'I want to play in every game, but we`ve got some great midfielders at this club and their form has been good. The manager has had a lot of decisions to make. You can`t take out players that are in good form.'

'`ve also had one or two injuries at the wrong time, perhaps when I`d have been given chances. Fair play to the likes of Anderson, he has been fantastic for someone so young and so new to the club.'

"But it`s a long season and I just have to keep myself fit and take every chance I get. We saw last season that injuries and suspensions take their toll. We got to a point where we had 12 or 13 players in a team going for three trophies.'

'Iknow my time will come. Hopefully we`ll be going for those three trophies again this season and I`ll play my part."


About last season's failure in the Champions League, he already mentioned the ke problem: injuries. However, there were other factors, too.

"Last year we were very unlucky," he admitted. "We lost in the FA Cup final and against Milan in the Champions League semi final. With a little bit of luck it could have gone differently.'

'Now we`re looking to use the experience of last year - with the addition of some new players - to push on this season. There are exciting times ahead at this club."

He could come to Arsenal and wait behind 8 quality players.

Sorry, but we have 8 better players in central midfield than you have. Do you want me to name them?

Fletcher would not make it into the Arsenal team. The sooner United get rid of him the better. Hes mince.

We have Fabregas, Flamini, Diarra, Diaby, Gilberto, Rosicky, Hleb, Walcott, Song, Gibbs, and numerous reserve and youth players who are far superior to your midfield bar Ronaldo and fletcher can't even get a game because of average Prem players

bseymour: Really, get a life. The pathetic insulting campaign you carry on here is wearisome. Especially that you display great stupidity: one minute you're talking about central midfield than you enlist Ronaldo, Walcott, Rosicky - neither of them play at the centre. Grow up and ***** off, we have a better team, and that's clear: just look at last season's league table.

Always fascinated how Fletcher gets a look in at such a great club. He's average at best surely?
