Tom Cleverley looks like a good little player, doesn't he?
Manchester United fans will respond with "duh!" but the rest of the footballing world has been skeptical for some time about what he actually brings to the table.
I've taken the time to watch him on several occasions now, and he's developing into an all-round excellent player.
His ability to play in almost any central midfield role—box-to-box, holding, in a diamond, in the hole—is astounding for one so young, and his attribute range is scarily wide.
Tackle, shoot, Hollywood pass, short pass, off-the-ball movement—you name it, he's got it.
He's still unrefined, but it's easy to see why Sir Alex Ferguson is persisting with him ever since he got his big chance in the Community Shield seasons ago.
