Shinji Kagawa: Stop-start first season in England

The £12m summer signing has started just 14 times in his first Premier League season, and a knee injury suffered in the autumn kept him out for two months.

But amid a stop-start campaign Kagawa has managed a hat-trick against Norwich, and his two assists at West Ham in midweek took United a point closer to their 20th English title.

Ferguson said: "He's doing very well for us now. He has fantastic composure on the ball and his decision-making is good.

"He seems to always pick the more sensible pass and for the first goal at West Ham he had the composure to take the player on in a tight area and roll the ball to Antonio Valencia for a tap-in."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
