Owen Hargreaves vowed to come back stronger and better than ever following his recovery from knee surgery. The midfielder – whom United sorely miss in my opinion as we have only Fletcher as a real tackler – is now back at Carrington after a lot of work done in the US.

‘I am going to come back stronger and hopefully add a couple more years to my career,’ he told the Manchester Evening News.

‘It has been frustrating at times,’

‘I don’t really watch our games because as an athlete, and being so competitive, it is hard to watch when you would normally be out there.’

Still, I hope he knows how our season has gone so far – I understand not being able to watch but not even knowing where we stand on the table would be quite insulting to his colleagues.

I’m praying that we’ll have a fit Hargreaves next season because Scholes has become a liability and Anderson’s second season has been a disaster compared to the first so the pressure is enormous on Carrick and Fletcher. Hopefully Owen will relieve them of some of it next season – or we might be forced to buy someone for that position as well.
