Welbeck Could Start!

Welbeck Could Start!

Now this is one big thing. Many complained that we do not have enough local talent coming through and none of the lads have a chance of holding down a regular first-team spot.

Fergie, however, had hinted before that Danny Welbeck could be a superstar. And his progress looks set to be accelerated due to the shortage of strikers in the first team: he may even start tomorrow against City!

'I may bring in the boy Welbeck, possibly from the start,' Fergie said.

'The boy has a chance of making it. We think he has that temperament.

'I think we want to keep Cristiano Ronaldo as a wide player, so we are short up front. Louis Saha is not back and we could have played Ryan Giggs through the middle but I think Welbeck has got the temperament.

'We will see tomorrow but I need to be very, very clear about everyone's fitness.'

Now, I would love it. His style would complement Tevez finely and possibly his enthusiasm would make up for lack of experience - and maybe it's possible that City won't take him seriously. I support the idea of starting him, it can't possibly do any harm for the boy.

i think he should start. it would certainly do no harm to his confidence, and with rooney suspended its a great chance for him.

Isn't the type of game to be taking such gambles though, is it?

maybe, but with rooney suspended its the best time for him. also city arn't having the best run of games im sure his pace and determination will cause the city defence some problems. link him with tevez i think we have the potential for some goals of the pair

i would love to see him star but i think we got more chance of seeing god.
