VIDEO: Shinji Kagawa performance vs Barcelona

by Sam Peoples

Hopes are high in the United camp for new signing Shinji Kagawa. Players and staff are nothing but complimentary about the Japanese playmaker and he seems to be settling in nicely with the team. Last night, he came on at half time against Barcelona and didn’t look out of place whatsoever.

Fast movement, instinctive passing and energy were all vibrantly on show in what was an assured performance against players who have regularly run us over in the midfield. My two pick out points were his lovely pass from almost a kneeling position at 2:08 and his darting run between the Barcelona midfield 3:00.

A player who runs at the opponent from the midfield and has the ability to cut them open and penetrate is exactly what we have been missing and likes the players and staff, I think Kagawa is the real deal.

What a bunch of deluded ManU fans! Talking nonsense about a player who may or may not proof his worth. Short memory syndrome, hyping a player in pre-season. I guess you all need to convince yourselves with a little fairy dust…. Good luck.

Who is dat idiot talking rubbish about kagawa I tink u’d watch d match mr so called roger I actually tink u nid a spec.

Jumping Jesus 08/09/2012 - 21:56

Thats right. Roger, you can’t expect Kagawa to be a world beater within 2 minutes of joining the club. He got involved, showed good energy, had a few pops at goal and looked busy. Bodes well. If we all thought like you we would have canned Christiano Ronaldo after his first outing. Get a grip

Paul Bienkowski 08/09/2012 - 21:26

Taking this a bit too seriously aren’t you boys. Kagawa has shown us that he will be a great player once he has settled into the club. If you did not see that Roger, perhaps you should book an appointment with Specsavers!

Roger Sanchez 08/09/2012 - 19:53

Rubbish mate, Kagaw was playing against a mix Barca side in the 2nd half. Barca had loads of youth and not much starters in the 2nd half. He might looked great to you, but in honesty he looked average.

I tink u re a fool

Roger Sanchez 08/09/2012 - 21:06

That’s your opinion mate! But it probably says more about you than me.

chicharito m 08/10/2012 - 00:54
