    i wonder… man utd have always been linked to a host of players yet some which arrive were not those who were named… in following this i really hope they get a midfield destroyer… someone with de rossi prehaps? why has he been so quite this period? imho creativeness is available through other players, i.e. anderson nani… but our midfield lacks a commander… a midfield general like gattuso, keane, viera… who were able to just sit and destroy… we dont really need modric and sneijder cause with a general in midfield, hopefully rooney will stop coming back so deep…
