Discussing which formation is best suited to Shinji Kagawa
Patrice Evra said after the Tottenham Hotspur defeat “It was like we stayed in the hotel! United deserved to lose after the poor first half show. The first 45 minutes had no speed, no focus, we didn’t win a lot of challenges and we conceded some silly goals”.
Much like Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Carrick is a player that seems to divide opinion amongst the United faithful. Ask many fans for their opinion of the midfielder, and the first response you will probably receive is “big-game bottler”, a reputation that was firmly cemented for Carrick following his performance against Barcelona in the 2009 Champions League final.
