Danny Welbeck

Manchester United boss David Moyes has outlined the importance of striker Danny Welbeck, and believes that the youngster will rediscover his scoring touch this season and help show that Manchester United’s Premier League odds
are longer than they should be.

Welbeck found the net 12 times in his breakthrough season at Old Trafford, but last season limped to just 2 goals. Whilst other aspects of his game meant he was a constant feature whenever United had a big game, his lack of goals was concerning.

As United kicked off their pre season tour last week, the England international missed a number of chances provoking a number of outbursts from fans but Moyes isn’t concerned by the Welbeck’s lack of goals and has back him to come good:

“When I arrived I was told how important Danny has been and how important he will be, and we’re doing everything we can, we’re giving him the opportunity just now because he’s got the chance to get games just now, we’re hoping his goals come as well.

“He had a couple of chances the other night, but it would be worse if he wasn’t getting any chances, and hopefully he’ll start taking one or two of them and it will start to give him the confidence he needs to go on a run of scoring plenty of goals.

“I spoke to him quite a bit yesterday and I mentioned the harder you work, you tend to find that the luck comes your way and if you keep working hard at it, continue the practise, and try to improve his finishing , and making sure that when he does get chances he feels confident about taking them.

“But I think his work (rate) has never been in question and that’s always what I’ve been told and I’ve just said to him ‘look, I am sure it will change for you. I’ve got no doubt if you keep doing the right things.”

With Rooney potentially leaving this summer, we will need Welbeck as well as Javier Hernandez to be on top of their game. There is a good chance if he does leave a replacement will be brought in but with (a fit) Rooney adding more than just goals to the team, both will need to be firing on all cylinders this season.

    this is the news all united fans needed to here…forget world class talent…forget becoming aggressive once more in the transfer market……..what we need to know is that the wellbeck myth will continue…who knows??? maybe he can double his goals tally to 4 next season????? perhaps he may control a ball instead of him resembling a drunken giraffe????…either way with city signing another player today we can rest assured that with wellbeck and our disdain of one of our only world class players (rooney) we will confidently retain the league and win the champions league……arrogance wins you things doesnt it????…………another transfer window of fake bids for players we know we cant get…….it isnt funny….can we as fans wake upto what the glazers have done and our past and present manager have and will adhere to………..wellbeck wouldnt get in the villa side…….our crazy transfer policy means he gets in the united side

    In agreement with the above comment. Welbeck seems like a nice lad, but he shouldn’t be in the UTD line-up as a striker. 1 prem goal? I’m sorry, that’s awful. I am also worried about our whole transfer policy this window, we keep going for unrealistic targets. I think moyes thinks he’s at home playing FIFA with this scattergun, completely fanciful approach to targets. (We’re not going to get bale, fabregas, modric, etc- the longer the list of rejections grows, the more people question the attraction of old Trafford!) Woodward and moyes are clearly over their head.

      “When I arrived I was told…” Who do you think told him this? Sir Alex of course so bringing him back will do what exactly?

      Give your head a wobble

    He’s no where near utd standard . He’s finishing is shocking at the moment . Sell him or loan him out to get games with the small chance he might find good form !
