Man United, unfortunately, lost their first game in the Women’s Super League. The Football Manc Cave are looking at a player that they go who they may regret letting leave in the future.
When I went to the Etihad Stadium last weekend to see Man United Women take on Man City. I expected about a 2/3-0 win and the blues to make it look easy. This wasn’t exactly the case as Man City only just managed to keep it 0-0 at half time. A brilliant save from Ellie Roebuck kept Man City in it and a moment of magic from Caroline Weir, allowed City to take all three points.
Man United looked like they are prepared for this league and ready to contend for a good spot in it. It’s early doors so fans will have to see them take on some more teams first to get an idea of their game plan but so far, things look good.
If United manage to keep the standard up. Alongside, Casey Stoney keeping them in the league, she has said before that she won’t give up until she’s achieved winning the Super League with Man United
I know that’s ambitious, but it could well happen in the future as Stoney’s plan of winning the league would result in them taking a Champions League spot. If this happens in the future, will they regret letting their ex-captain go?
The 25-year-old defender was Man United’s captain and even broke into the England team. She was a part of the original Casey Stoney squad that helped them gain promotion to the Super League. Personally, I think she was a big part of the clubs plans for this season and the motivation for some of the players.
Unfortunately, she left for Olympique Lyon over the summer and fans was gutted. She’s currently out injured at the minute but will be looking to recover and develop.
If Man United Women do end up in the Champions League at some point in the future, they could end up facing their ex-captain. Although that is a big if. The fans, players and club as a whole will always hold a special place in their hearts for Greenwood, as she was a part of the original squad.
They’ll always regret letting her go, however, it will be nice for United fans to see her progress.
