A little pea Galvanizes the Stuttering Giant

Siddarth Wednesday, October 27, 2010

No one could have predicted the impact Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez would have on the united team even a couple of months ago! He’s risen from the title of our most exciting youngster to almost everybody’s favorite united player. Hernandez aka “Little Pea” has captured the imagination of everyone at Old Trafford over the past few weeks, and probably spurred a stuttering United team back to life!

Hernandez has to be one of the most promising striking talents in the world at the moment. His potential is irrefutable and he has already given everyone a glimpse of what he is capable of, and our opponents should be wary of the fact that Hernandez will get even better with time! He’s on his way to become one of the top strikers in the world, and by the looks of things he’ll do it at United. Hopefully he remains at the club for the rest of his career, cementing his place among the legends of Manchester United.

Hernandez has been compared to Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, due to clinical finishing and precision in front of goal, and also to a young Michael Owen, because of his searing pace and predatory sense in and around the penalty box. Javier’s style of play is actually pretty unique, there are other facets of his game that many haven’t really stressed on much, like his good passing, ability to hold up the ball & link up play and finally excellent ball control, not seen in either Owen or Solksjaer to a great degree. Hernandez is an intelligent striker, who like Solksjaer, reads the game really well, he might not be physically imposing but he more than makes up for it with deft and spontaneous play.

Another thing that endears Chicharito to us fans is his great attitude and humbleness, Sir Alex himself admitted that Javier is usually the first to training and last to leave, also he’s the first to divert any credit coming his way, rather preferring to praise those around him, a rare quality among modern day footballers. Always smiling, Hernandez at times reminds one of a child who’s living out their dream, and is thoroughly enjoying every bit of it.

His meteoric rise couldn’t have been timed any better, with Wayne Rooney throwing tantrums on the lack of talented footballers in the team, Hernandez has given him so much food for thought I doubt Wayne will be opening his mouth any time soon. Hernandez’s performances and persona has been a breath of fresh air to all of us United fans, especially after probably the worst week in the club’s recent past, as Rooney’s antics not only earned him the wrath of the fans but he is now held in contempt by most of us. And to add insult to injury, we seemed to have had forgotten how to win a game.

Hernandez lead us to our first away win of the season and then made a huge impact in the 10 minutes that he spent on the pitch against Wolves in the Carling Cup, topping of his impressive cameo with an injury time winner with a finish that either Solksjaer or Owen would have been proud to score from.

Hernandez’s impact has been substantial as he has galvanized our team to action, and his emergence has created an excitement and euphoria not seen off late around Old Trafford. It might be too early to say anything, but I think this could be one of the huge turning points of our season.
