But what if we get another Veron. This is the problem in buying 'World Class' players who have no experiece of playing our type of football.
Veron was the BEST midfielder in the world, in his position, when we bought him. But he failed in this country, even at Chelsea.
Nolan is a good player, I have watched him now for 4 or 5 years. It is not always WORLD CLASS players who make the difference to the team. IMO our player of the season (Wes Brown)would not be classed as WORLD CLASS, not yet anyway, but we would struggle at the moment without him.
I think we do need a really good midfielder, someone who suits our style of play, but Nolan would also be a good buy, to bring into the team as needed at first, then to build himself into the midfield. Lets face it, with our injury's throughout the year, we need more that 1 midfield player in the summer.
Nolan would be an asset in our midfield for a few reasons
1.good box to box player good engine.
2.Is experienced in premier league.
3.Is english so if limit is imposed on non english players is beneficial.
4 Scores goals from midfield.
5.Still young enough to adapt to man utd style of play.
6.Less risky signing than foreigners a lot of whom dont adapt.

Nolan would be a great addition. Our first priority next season is to challenge Chelsea domestically and then hopefully have a decent run in Europe. When we bought Keane, Europe was an afterthought. We were trying to win the league for the first time since 1967
