Midfield crisis in manutd
October 2, 2008 5:15am CST
Now that our first choice central midfielders Michael carrick & paul scholes are out for some time what do you guys think that united's central midfield should look like? I think ryan giggs palyed ver well agianst aalborg in the champions league group match and showed he can really marshall the midfield very well. But i don't know if he can manage the same when we are under pressure and against quality oppositions.He's ageing and has not got the speed to run down the left anymore.Oshea didn't please me so much. Playing as holding midfielder, he was being out run and is not solid.He's a kind of soft guy and can't withstand pressure.I would go with giggs and hargreaves(if he is fit). Anderson is also another choice, but lacks consistency.If hargreaves is not fit possebon or gibson can give a chance. What do you guys think would be the right combination at the center?Do we really need to think about a new signing in january before the champions league final stage resumes?

No no more signings you are partly right but wrong on major parts... calling O'shea soft is wrong man he is the one who played in every possible position when man utd needed him and at those times he was under immense pressure. Giggs is aging right but he still has the same commitment present in him.. we have many midfielders now in our team and all are world class so no need to get in new players..last match rafael showed us that he is more than a right back so he is another big prospect so no tension in our camp as we have world class attackers , midfielders and even defenders who can sustain whole season easily....

I think Giggs is good but whether he would be able to last the full 90 minutes is probably the question that Sir Alex is pondering upon right now. I think it would Anderson and Ronaldo who will now probably play a bit deeper. Up front it would be the trio of Tevez, Rooney and Berbatov. Cheers! Ram
