Javier Hernandez aka Chicharito can make it to the first team? or another flop?

I am not convinced Hernandez is a Man U type of player. Even in the world cup his goals looked to be pretty lucky. The goal he scored in the community shield just proved that further he struck the ball onto his own body and the deflection took it into the goal. I think he will turn out to be another Berbatov in lots of oohs and aahs and too less goals!! Cheers! Ram

Since Ruud moved on, United have lacked the predatory striker that likes to be in front of goal. With Obertan & Macheda healthy and with a year behind them, Owen, Berbatov & Javier will relish taking some of the scoring burden away from Rooney. Also, the defensive injury woes of last season should not resurface to the same crisis level which will give them more tactical options and alleviate the pressure to outscore opponents. Evra, Gibson, Nani, Valencia etc. will be able to get forward more often and help with the scoring punch even more than last season :) The beauty of Javier is his instinct, pace, skills, international experience at such a young age. He will do well to follow all the rules laid down by SAF. Do you know the story of Diego Forlan while at Man Utd? Eric

He is dubbed the new Ole Gunnar Solsjaek. I think he is a good addition to the team and will be a good impact player coming on as a substitute. I don't think he is ready to be in the starting eleven. Another issue will be the nature of the English game. Remember Carlos Vela of Arsenal. He looks good when turning out for the Mexican team. But when he is thrown in the thick of the action for his club, he don't seem like he is able to cope with the speed and robustness of the English game.

I think Ferguson will try to ease him in to the team through substitute appearances and starting Carling Cup games. It will take him time to adapt to the Premier League style of play, but once he does I think he'll do quite well. I can certainly see him contributing more than Berbatov, anyway.
