No matter how much he trains, I am almost certain we will never see anywhere near the player we used to have in Fletch. His performances earlier in the season showed that, he was pretty dreadful in every match he played. I really hope he doesn’t bow out on a bad note… I know it must be a horrible feeling to retire but I think he has to do it or risk embarrassing himself and ruining United’s chances for glory.
