Is This Finally The Time For Kagawa?

Shinji Kagawa has been a disappointment for Manchester United thus far, but thanks to other circumstances, he might have a chance in his favoured position this weekend...

A plucky draw for utd please - Chelsea to batter them and take the lead then up pops Shinji with a scuffed finish - then Utd will have "turned the corner", City get further from Chelsea and utd get beat off everyone for the rest of the season.

@solskjaer - maybe, maybe not. A win is the best possible outcome, but the possibility of a top 4 finish, I think, depends more on the form of Liverpool, than taking anything away from Chelsea. Assuming City, Chelsea and Arsenal continue playing the way they have been, our final finish depends on that last 4th place, and therefore we need Liverpool to drop a few. I'm also working towards the assumption that Everton won't continue as they have been as well, as they have been very impressive this year as well.

A draw may be respectable for United but realistically a win is required to maintain any pretence of a top four finish.

So just to confirm, if Man United get a draw at Stamford Bridge it will 'set them up nicely', but if we get beat, the season is a write off? One point makes all the difference!

Ye wrote an article two months ago about how United "click" with Kagawa in the middle and now ye are writing him off?? The glorified Tony Pulis that is David Moyes doesn't play the sort of football that benefits Shinji #freeshinji

the more players return from injury, the bigger the weekends will get for Sherwood. the sudden burst of 3-4 top level players must surely fundamentally alter his stance tactically and selectionally (you can have that), which is something he has inferred. If he keeps playing a dated slightly suicidal team results will catch up with him, which I hope it doesn't. I'm going to say, i think Soldado will get a couple this weekend.

The comment below is correct. Kagawa just doesn't fit in at Utd. He's arguably too intelligent for the other players around him. Quite often he will come deep to receive the ball - get it - play it quickly and then look for the return ball into space that he has just made for himself. Does he get it? Of course not. The ball ball is booted out to ashley Young who cuts onto his good foot and whacks a speculative cross into the box. I saw a comment on this site a week or so ago that said that Andreas Iniesta would look ordinary in this Utd team for the same reasons. He/ she was completly right.

There are many Man U fans who would choose 'I cant believe it's not Fergie'.

Tidy player but he's not asserted himself the way we would have hoped. Far from bad, but thus far I have been disappointed. His best contributiojn so far has been a hattrick against Norwich last season. Must do better.......

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
