Owen Hargreaves Will Be Key

Of all the signings Fergie has made this summer. The one likely to prove the most crucial was his securing of long term target Owen Hargreaves. The much marginalised and underrated, Canadian born English man is actually the one Roy Keane replacement Fergie has been looking for since Keane started losing his powers back in 2004.

Though it is clear that the one thing United would probably never replace about Keane in the team is his leadership and influence, his playing game was completely replaceable.

Manutd.com: Reds Announce Tevez Capture

Update 3: The Beeb’s got this report. According to that Kia Joorabchian’s lawyers say, the deal has progressed with the “knowledge and permission” of West Ham United. Wonder what will happen now. Expect the deal to take a while.

Update 2: Eggert Magnussen has now opened his mouth. Wants Tevez to spend his next three years with the Hammers. Pah!

Update: Sky Sports seem to have confirmed it. It’s a two year loan!

Featured Video: Hargo’s Crackers

Michael Carrick wasn’t quite the goal scorer at Tottenham, although we now know he is capable of scoring a scorcher or two, don’t we?

Owen Hargreaves wasn’t particularly prolific at Bayern. In fact, his goal return was pathetic. But he wasn’t meant to score goals anyway, was he? But he has scored some, more than decent, goals. And my, my… some of them are actually pretty well taken efforts.
I would be really happy if he gets even a couple of those next season. Video after the jump.

Why Heinze Won’t Go to Liverpool

The answer is very simple really.

Manutd.com carries a report where Heinze says that he would deliberate about a move to another club. But the club needs to really, really convince him that the move would be right for him.
