Gary: 2008 Will Be Special!

Gary: 2008 Will Be Special!

Gary Neville believes United are in an excellent position on all fronts after a great first half to the season.

The skipper who has not featured since March 17 when he got injured against Bolton at Old Trafford is in confident mood regarding the team's chances for silverware and his own situation, too.

'There is a lot to look forward to in 2008 because we have had a great first half to the season,' he told MUTV.

'We are right up there towards the top of the league. We are into the next round of Europe and the FA Cup starts after Christmas. We have a difficult tie there but we have everything to play for, which is all we ask for.

'The seasons where we have struggled in the past are the ones where we have been out of contention at Christmas, so we are really happy with the way it has gone so far.'


'I have started training again now and I want to get as fit as I possibly can.

'It has been really frustrating for me but the inspiration is watching the lads. I realise that is where I want to be and I can't wait to get back.'


But we've been hearing that for so long now. I'd like to hear a full, detailed description of what happened to him in the past nine months, why his comebacks were delayed and what are the chances of ever seeing him out there. These vows that he will come back seem so hollow if you consider we haven't seen him for almost a year now.

In the meantime, let's hope our players keep on being inspiration for the captain. That might really help. It does help ME indeed, lot easier going to work when we beat Liverpool!

It will be special: either the Premier League or the Champions League trophy or both will end up at Old Trafford, I'm confident about that.

And let me ask something El Nino: you are obviously a Liverpool fan (judging by your username) yet you are nowhere to be seen on the Vital Liverpool site. Is it possible that your sole enjoyment is trying to wind us up with stupid things but you have nothing to say about your own team?
