Is Man Utd’s most promising young Englishman actually at Stoke?

Apart from Man Utd Real Madrid and the LA Cowboys or whatever they are called, who has David Beckham played for?….Wrong!

The answer is Preston, who he was briefly loaned to before becoming the 6th Spice Girl. You see, there is nothing wrong with proving your worth at a lower level to get Alex Ferguson’s attention, no not you Terry Cooke. Here is a man that is doing it properly.

Stoke City’s on-loan Manchester United defender Ryan Shawcross has been named as the Championship’s player of the month for October.

Well he must be quite good then as defenders never win these prizes, it’s always just people who score a load of goals.

He found the net three times during the month, scoring against West Brom, Colchester and Crystal Palace.

Oh. So is he a future partner for Rio Ferdinand in the Man Utd defence? Or maybe just a future partner for Anton Ferdinand in the Leyton Orient defence?
