United fans on Kagawa 1st half performance on Twitter: football porn!

Manchester United supporters are perplexed at why the club's premier playmaker does not feature more often…

The midfield dominance Manchester United have enjoyed in the first half against Bayer Leverkusen, a game they currently lead by a scoreline of two goals to nil, has it's foundations built on the intuitive link-up play between Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa and veteran player-coach Ryan Giggs, according to popular consensus on Twitter.

When Kagawa has been selected in Champions League football this season, he has oft wowed crowds with his ability on the ball, yet he - somehow - still struggles to convince manager David Moyes that he is worthy of regular first-team football.

Kagawa's strong form this evening, Wednesday, November 27 in Germany, is not wholly because of his passing skills, but his positional nous and the nous required to time his runs effectively.

Fan comments on social media have ranged from calling his style of play 'football porn', to imploring Moyes to select him for the upcoming Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur in a game that is a must-win if they are to reassert their title credentials having dropped two points last weekend against Cardiff City.
