MUFC – Smells Like Team Spirit! Could This Be Fergie’s Greatest Ever Side?

New article from Sal Romney:

So far this transfer window the superstar signing some fans are craving for has been elusive and I for one hope it stays that way.

The bond between the new and young players is clear to see and whilst Manchester United under Ferguson stewardship has always been a close knit club, I haven’t seen a bond like this between players since the break up of Fergie’s Fledglings.

The 3 England U21 Youngsters introduced into the first team squad this season, Cleverley, Welbeck and Jones join their international team mate Chris Smalling in addition the Da Silva Twins. Who have taken young David De Gea under their wing along with Javier Hernandez who acts as the young Spaniards interpreter.

So do we have an English camp in  one corner and a Spanish / Portuguese camp in another corner ? Absolutely not, it is clearly one camp, the Manchester United camp and not only that it incorporates the other new signing Ashley Young along with the next age group up including players such as Nani,  Anderson, Evans, Valencia and Rooney.

So what does this mean for Manchester United ?

The results are there to see, performances on the training pitch and in games have been sharper, faster with a hunger not often associated with reigning champions.

Moving on to the next age group such as Vidic, Ferdinand, Carrick and Fletcher etc, whilst they’ve proven over the years that they don’t rest on their laurels they also know that is not even an option this season with younger arguably hungrier guys waiting to take their place.

All this quality and potential is without mentioning the even younger prodiguous, possibly even better talents such as Morrison, Pogba and Tunnicliffe who recently won the FA Youth Cup last season.

Every Manchester United fan was sad to say goodbye to a quintet of legends, Scholes, Neville, Van der sar, Brown and O’shea I am happy to welcome Fergies next young crop.

So whilst some fans crave superstar signings like our noisy neighbours across the way I am looking forward to seeing Sir Alex Ferguson’s final and possibly finest team.

  1. Definitely looking forward to this young batch of players. As someone who started supporting United somewhere in 1999 or 2000 (they were showing that FA Cup match with United and Arsenal on some shitty government channel over here) I missed out on the whole Fergie’s Fledglings craze… but screw that, now I get the chance to see this new batch of youngsters work their magic. City buys a world class team, United BUILDS one!
