If I were to be perfectly honest I wouldn`t have, at the start of the campaign, ever foreseen Danny Welbeck forcing his way into the starting eleven on such a regular basis.

Although Danny had done well whilst on loan at Sunderland last season, I thought it`d take this season for him to force his way even into being in contention.

But it just goes to show how wrong you can be.

The loan spell at Sunderland saw Danny evolve from being a promising youngster into a top-notch striker, something that Danny has commented on in the media this morning as well as his love for his home town club and his desire to succeed, see what you think,

“I went to Sunderland as a boy and I came back as a man.”

“I went there at 19 and came back at 20 more mature physically and mentally.”

“It was the next step in my career to go out there and get games in the Premier League week in and week out.”

“It was beneficial to me and like a stepping stone in my career. It allowed me to come back to United a bigger and better person.”

“It`s always going to be really tough to make it at United. If you are coming through the youth ranks you see a lot of people come and go.”

“I`m a Manc and I`ve been a United fan all my life. I`m not just a player, I`m a fan as well, so I just want the best for United.”

“Every time I`m on the pitch I`m just going to give it 100 per cent. I`ve seen players go and I just want to do that.”


Welbeck remains a rarity, a home town kid who has cracked it and the first, hopefully, of a new breed.
