Darren Fletcher

One of the most horrible people in football.

Is his only purpose in the game to foul consistently and then harang the referee about decisions he got completely right?

I think you will find that United would have won the 2009 Champions League final had Fletcher been available*

*according to United Fans

Was there a stipulation stating Howard Webb would be refereeing the game if Fletcher was available?

Spot on Puke. :clap:

Darren Fletcher is to take an extended break from football. There’s a joke in there somewhere…

Has he ever shit himself on pitch?

More information on it, colitis

MANCHESTER UNITED’S DARREN FLETCHER has been forced to take an “extended break” from football as he battles a bowel disease.

The Scottish midfielder has been in and out of United’s squad since a “mystery virus” caused him to missed two months towards the end of last season’s title-winning campaign.

In a statement released by the club this afternoon, United confirmed that Fletcher is in fact suffering from ulcerative colitis, a chronic inflammatory bowel condition which flared up again recently.

On medical advice, the 27-year-old has decided to take time out from the physical demands of training and playing in an attempt to achieve full remission of the disease.

“On behalf of Darren Fletcher, Manchester United wishes to announce that he is taking an extended break from football for health reasons,” the club statement read.

“Over the past year he has had several absence periods which we have attributed to a viral illness in order to respect his right to medical confidentiality. Darren has, in fact, been suffering from ulcerative colitis (a chronic inflammatory bowel condition) for some time preceding this.

Whilst he was able to maintain remission of symptoms for a considerable period this has proved more difficult recently and Darren’s continued desire to play and his loyalty to both his club and country has probably compromised the chances of optimising his own health and fitness.

“He has therefore accepted medical advice to take an extended break from the demands of training and playing in order to afford the best chance possible of achieving full remission once again.

“We request that his privacy is respected and hope that the removal of the additional stress associated with speculation regarding his health will also aid his recovery.”

all the best to the lad. seems like a decent lad and a good pro.

Tough luck on the lad. Ulcerative Colitis is an awful dose, very debilitating and difficult to treat.

He wears a poppy.

Where exactly would one have to wear it for it to cause colitis?

I was wondering why he was being overlooked for a place in the team recently. Hope this will turn Fergies hand to get a central midfielder in now. :clap:

A superb footballer. I wish him a speedy return to action.
