Man Utd to offer Giggs a new contract?
September 30, 2007 10:54pm CST
I've read today that Manchester United is set to offer Ryan Giggs a new contract. Is this a wise move by Alex Ferguson? He is 34 already and have played for United for 17 years! Amazing feat for a professional footballer to stick at one club for so long but don't you think he can cope with fast-paced modern Premiership football? Do you think he can still contribute? During Birmingham's game he's having a nightmare and has to be replaced midway through the second half

I have great admiration for Ryan Giggs. For me, he has always been the very skilful and reliable player that Man United has the honour to count among its highly-prized players. I give him top marks for dedication, someone who lets his feet do the talking. I've hardly seen him lose his cool, and he usually gives his best for every match he is fielded. I used to be overawed by his speed and dribbling skills. A true professional in every sense of the word. Unfortunately, his playing days are numbered given the pace of the game nowadays, but I feel that as long as physically he can keep going, United should keep around to guide the rest. He is still valuable to United, and I still love watching him play.

Thanks for your vote. Yes, his dribbling was fantastic in his earlier years. I like to see him run at defenders down that wing. His footwork is just so dazzling (Ronaldo's footwork and his run at defenders is now the exciting thing to watch!). One day when Giggs is no more playing, I hope he is remembered as one of Man United's great players, just like Sir Matt Busby, Bobby Charlton, Eric Cantona, George Best, and many others.

I think Ryan Giggs has been such a great professional for Man U that Alex feels that he deserves one more year. I think he still can be effective as an impact player. Also, I believe that even now there is not ample cover for Man U for injuries, so Giggs gets one extra year. But, I definitely do not think that he warrants a place in the starting line up in a full strength Man U team currently. Cheers! Ram

I agree with you that Giggs do not have to play 90 minutes or even to start every matches. He could come in during the last 25 minutes or so perhaps to replace Nani and to break down opponents. He will definitely give more impact to the team using this way

the age doesnt matter..the thing matters is that giggs has been giving his 100 percent in each of the game he has played for united..he is among the greatest player the club have ever seen..am a great fan of the wales winger and i would love to see him playin for the red devils for coming seasons

Man united needs him .. u cant judge a player on the basis of one game .. look at his contribution for Man U for the past many seasons.. also . it was his cross only from which tevez scored .. n we won agianst chelsea .. so man u still need giggs for that kind of crosses :)

Hello there. Ryan Giggs is one of my favorite Man U players of all time. =D His contribution to the club is enormous. I feel that he deserves to continue playing for Man U. Even though he may not be as fast, he is definitely more experienced. His experience can help to nurture the current batch of young players. I do believe he will retire (like wad Soljkaer did) end of this season or next season and go into coaching. =D

I thing that Ryan Giggs deserves a new contract 100%. He has been a great player and faithful and steady in the team that made him a star. We should not forget that during his presence to United, a lot of other great teams of Europe offered him huge ammounts of money to leave Manchester but he refused. He could easily put the money above the team and go to another League.This way he proved his love to MU. For this reason, he deserves a new contract, even if Sir Alex does not use him at all. Nevertheless, i believe that in some games his experience will be useful to the team.
