When fit? and now that he's 30, do we beleive he's now now suddenly fit?


The 2004-05 season was a stop-start season marred by constant injury. Saha never really got going making only 11 starting appearances, 11 from the bench and scoring two goals. In September he picked up a knee injury playing for France against the Faroe Islands which cost him a month. Then in November he picked up the injury again, also playing for the national side and costing nearly two months out. At the end of February 2005, the problem re-occurred, again leaving Saha out for a further two months. With serious doubts over fitness, his long term future at Old Trafford was highly uncertain. The Frenchman was again sidelined by a hamstring strain for the first three months of the new season and there was talk of him leaving in the January transfer window.

He finally returned in November 2005 and eased back into side as a sub, making appearances in League Cup matches. To the surprise of many, the French striker recaptured his initial good form and started banging in the goals. Six goals in the League Cup run saw him usurping Ruud van Nistelrooy as the first choice strike partner for Wayne Rooney. Saha was named a starter, over van Nistelrooy, in the final against Wigan Athletic, signaling an extraordinary turn-a-round in fortunes for the two players. For the remainder of the season, Saha was commonly picked in place of the Dutch striker. Saha scored 15 goals during the 2005-06 season and was chosen by Ferguson to partner alongside Rooney for the next season, after van Nistelrooy's exit for Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.

Saha began the 2006-07 season in great form, scoring only 7 minutes into the first game versus Fulham.[6] In December 2006, he signed an extension to his contract[7] lasting to 2010, though soon after began suffering from more injury problems. Groin and hamstring injuries restricted appearances and meant he only scored one goal in the 2nd half of the season. He returned as substitute at Roma but then soon picked up a knee injury. Saha's excellent pre-Christmas form had led to him bagging 15 goals in all competitions.

In the 2007-08 season, Saha returned from injury and came as a substitute against Sunderland, scoring the winning goal.[8] On 23 September 2007, Saha won and converted a penalty against Chelsea in Chelsea's first game with Avram Grant in charge.[9] This earned Saha a recall to the French national team after a year out.

Against Arsenal, Saha came on to replace the under performing Carlos Tévez in a 2-2 draw.[10] He was key in setting up a goal as Cristiano Ronaldo gave United a 2-1 lead.[10] Saha continued to make appearances off the bench, but when Wayne Rooney was ruled out for a few weeks he partnered Tévez up front. He started on December 26, Boxing Day. Manchester United won the game 4-0 and Saha scored two goals including a penalty to lift Manchester United to 1st position in the Premiership.

Saha made his return in an FA Cup clash versus Arsenal on 16 February 2008. The following weekend, Saha came on as a substitute for Ronaldo, scoring the final goal in a 5-1 rout of Newcastle United.[11] After returning to nearly full fitness, Saha's injury haunts returned and forced him off with a hamstring complaint during United's win over Bolton at Old Trafford, where Saha had been looking good, causing the defense various problems. Saha was ruled out for several weeks, missing key games. In the final game of the Premier League season against Wigan Athletic, Saha was named as a substitute, but played no part in the game. In May 2008, Saha admitted that he believes his United career is in doubt despite his want to stay and love for the club, he is unsure of what the future holds for him at Old Trafford.[12]

I hope you're right, and being surrounded by new team mates who are not faggot #7s and arsehole #10s obsessed with their own egos and sponsorships, he'll have a different outlook.
DM will get him fit and fit-minded.
Either that or we can use the letters LS and VDM to mean the same thing.

8 million turned down for Saha

Must say as much as I think he is a great striker considering his injury problem and age 8 million would have been a very tempting offer. I would actually go as far to say I think we should have taken it.

I pretty much agree with this. I can see this being a big season for Saha, along with Vaughan and Anichebe, with 3 having to become 1. If Saha has a good season, i can see him getting a new 2 year contract to see his career out with us, with Vaughan and Anichebe moving on, and the next set of kids replacing them.

When fit he's clinical. If the ball is bouncing around the box he'll tuck it away. And again you have to ask, with a week to go until the season starts,taking his onfield form at face value, would we be able to replace him with 8m? Unlikely.
Saha's owes Moyes an injury free season. He's put alot of faith in him and would love to see a fit Yak and Saha working together. Our striking department if injuries can be prevented has massive potential. Lets try keep them together.

No chance! At this late stage we shouldn't be selling anyone we won't be able to replace.

Saha is a first choice striker, and while 8 million quid would be nice, we'd never replace him before next week, which leaves Vaughan playing on his own if Jo isn't fit!

I feel we did the right thing as well. We can't let a class striker leave (assuming he stays fit). They can have Anichebe for £8M though.

There's two aspects to this for me.

1) £8m? I'd have taken that in a heart beat if it's a genuine bid.
2) Leak a story implying we don't need £8m (even for an injury prone player in his 30's). That tells Man City they need to pay what we want for Lescott because we just dont need their dirty cash. Get your supersized cheque book out Sheikh Mabooty.

I don't think he ever was. I thought he offered to sign for us on that basis but the club said they'd have a normal contract with him. Maybe I've got that wrong (I doubt it though as I'm always right, even when I'm wrong).

I think we are paying Man Utd based on the number of games he plays, so it's a pay-as-you-play deal with them, not in regards to his wages. He did offer to not take any wages until he was fit at the beginning of last season, but we turned that down.
