Tom Cleverley

Recommended Posts

Plenty of ironic cheers when he was subbed.

It just hasn't worked for him with us. As others have said, I'd cancel his loan and let him go to Everton or wherever he wants to go. At least it would free up some wages.

Can't believe he was anywhere near the England squad once upon a time

 

I laughed that the commentator thought it was cheers for Andi coming on.

Commentators today saying how he might snub us for Everton during the Summer. I'd be surprised if Everton were in for him again seeing how poor he has been for us.

Cleverley "snubs" us?

 

We can always live in hope I guess.

 

I doubt another Premiership side outside of the bottom 3/newly promoted sides would want him, based on his performances for us.

If it is indeed a deal where he 'has to start' (which I doubt) then start him and take him off after 30 seconds.

Richardson/Bacuna/Herd/Bannan/Sylla > Cleverley.

Strangely enough, he could be the reason Lambert gets the sack. When he plays, it just pisses the fans off even more.

I mean this in the nicest possible way but why can't the likes of him and Gabby get the bad injuries?  It's always our important players that are getting the bad injuries and we end up stuck with tripe like him having an easy ride.  Just watch him on MOTD for the first goal and then he just falls on his arse when he gets put in by Westwood.  :/

Hasn't produced anything close to a useful performance since Burnley away in November. 

 

The effort's there, he's just shit.

I'd guess we might offer him a contract in the summer but we won't be wasting any money on him.

Not a big money contract either, and if he turns it down, no biggie.

He shouldn't be playing that high up the pitch if he's played wide, well he shouldn't play wide and he shouldn't play that high up the pitch. So that means if he starts he should start centrally. For him to start centrally then 2 of Sanchez, Delph and Westwood need to be unavailable.

I mean that is the problem. Lambert brought in both Sanchez and Cleverley for basically the same positions that Delph and Westwood play. Surely in the summer we required a winger or forward greater than yet another plodding midfielder?

please snub us and go to Everton

 

.......mind you he will probably get his form back there. Like Bertrand at Southampton.

Take into account he also brought in Richardson as a CM.We did need squad depth and with Delph having so much time out we did need the cover.But to try and shoehorn all 4 of them into the same side was utter madness.

 

The problem with Cleverly is he has no speciality.Westwood pass's better than him , Sanchez is a better DM and Delph can run with the ball.I also think that all the abuse he got at United and for being picked for England has mentally effected him.So you have a player lacking in confidence and then you try and play him as a wide midfielder...makes no sense

We swapped KEA for this?

It proves to me why you never sign players taking a step down.

Sorry to derail the useless man utd word removed on loan that none of want thread but I think Bertrand is a good example of where we are and what's going wrong at our club, good player, 2-3 games played really well, form then on he sussed what was going on, no pressure to do well from the top, yeah you're here we're paying you good wages we're staying up everyone's happy do what you like fella type attitude, he soon dropped to "our level"

Like pretty much all of our players he ended up costing

But he's got 'Premier league experience' that quality some fans clamour for in signings and managers.... Ability is what counts, not Premier League experience. Awful player. He's the sort of player who's destined for a spell at Sunderland then Wigan (as long as we're not stupid enough to buy him).

True that TJVilla!! They had some article on Birmingham Mail other day about what players would Villa fans like to see and the names was shocking:

 

Scott Parker, Aaron Lennon, Scott Parker, Aiden McGeady (and list went on) and just full of crap players that are either past it or not wanted currently by their club.

 

and you see comments like "proven Premiership experience only" most of these idiots saying this wanted Joleon Lescott here in the summer who has done nothing of note at Baggies on £70k a week.

 

This is why it's better to go for proven up and coming talent around Europe such as Gil and many others... who are on their way up!!

 

Sunderland seem to buy Premiership over-hyped duds and look where that's got them, where abouts West Ham, Swansea (bar Sigurddson but he was worth purchasing) and Southampton look abroad and have grabbed some great bargains

Can we talk about how he last-ditch-tackled his chance yesterday? Just shocking.

 

Not the first time he's skied it over the bar when anything else would have led to a goal either from him or a team mate.

Worse than Tonev? For me he's pretty rubbish but not quite that rubbish.

EDIT: I mean he's definitively rubbish enough to send back, I don't want us to spend another penny on him, but he's not as rubbish as Tonail was.
