Not Getting Sneijder Gives the Oppurtunity to the Club's Young Fraternity
Throughout his tenure as United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has never been one to shy away from setting a youthful onus upon his sides. Yet even by his own relatively new-age mantra, this season has allowed Ferguson to plunge new depths.
Admittedly the side that was sent out against Spurs two weeks back was only the second youngest of the bosses time at the helm, but in contrast to the youngest (back in 09), the side that took to the field against Harry Redknapp's men was only fractionally dis-similar to this season first team.
Sir Alex's failure to land Sneijder has given the boss the opportunity to blood new talent, such as Tom Cleverley on a consistent and sustained basis.
Cleverley is playing in the knowledge that the central birth is very much up for grabs, and that he himself has an excellent opportunity to stake his claim as the club's first choice play-maker for years to come.
The signing of Sneijder would have outlawed such a possibility, as quite simply a man on £200,000 a week who cost over £30 million, and sits resplendent among the pantheons of the world's best footballers, doesn't do bench sitting.
In this stead Cleverley, and to a lesser extent midfield counter-part Anderson would have played very much a supporting role, quite likely sidelined for the more conservative Darren Fletcher or Michael Carrick.
And we wouldn't want that would we? Michael Carrick on the pitch? Shudder.
