@dcpremo, Illori has to be ahead of them in the queue for me, I think he has massive potential.

@kolawole, Mikel also will never be anywhere close to the calibre of player Gerrard is and was in his prime, show some respect. Mikel has never been anything other than bang average. United dodged one hell of a bullet there.

Here in Nigeria, Mikel's received more stick than any other player who represented their country in this world cup. He was even asked not to come back after our 2nd round exit to France. But the truth is he's our most high profile player and suffers from the expectation that he will be one of the best players in the world. One more thing than wasn't mentioned is the fact that he is still 27 even though he has won more in the game than captain fantastic (that never slips) ever will. lol

the comments on here about Mikel are quite shocking. esp from the likes of Harryboulton and of cos Storey. while I partly agree with godof86 that he hasnt turned out to be the player he was supposed to, I bliv this is partly due to the fact he came out at the same time as messi (he was voted 2nd MVP at the U20 in 2005, behind Messi). But dont follishly make it seem like he was simply warming the bench and picking up all those trophies. Quite simply, he's won everything there is to win in club football and i'm sure if I go and check he started in all of the finals of the cups he won. He does the simple things admittedly, but lets face it, Chelsea's generation of managers have all trusted him.

ahhh Martin Kelly, he'd have displaced Glen Johnson by now if he wasn't made of balsa wood

25 year-old Scott Sinclair could have been shoehorned into this quite easily. I feel really sorry for Lucas. I think the injury he had at the end of 12-13 has taken half a yard off him that he could ill-afford to lose. Added to the pace at which Liverpool now play, it's left him looking exposed. It's particularly unfair given that around two years ago he was arguably Liverpool's most important player and would have been justified in leaving for Champions League football. Sadly, Agger falls into the same bracket as this. the lad just cannot keep himself fit for an entire season. You have to be ruthless I'm afraid.

Mikel looked quite useful during the World Cup I thought. Cleverley is far better than he's given credit for. He was given a dogs task and abuse last year, but previously he was the bright young thing knitting together an attack with Young and Rooney that looked scintillating. Then he got injured, and his manager left. For Tottenham's sake I hope Holtby isn't behind Andros Townsend, Nabil Bentaleb, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli, Moussa Dembele and Gylfi Sigurdsson in the queue as he's far better than any of them.

duckman (Manchester United) says...

Cleverley has had a rough time, no question about that. He got injured, made a huge mistake letting his advisers do the 'TC23' bit and, as Daniel says, it's not his fault he's not Paul Scholes. Personally I think there is still a real top class player in there, but whether he'll ever get another chance to show it at OT is very debatable.

timbo (Cardiff City) says...

Have to agree with paulw66. F365 is a bit harsh on Mikel. He may not have aged gracefully but he was well worth the fight between Chelsea and Man U during his younger days.

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....

alf of our players have the physical presence of a 14 year old girl. I don't know why people are always shocked that they're injured.
