Michael O'Connor is a creative midfield player who joined Scunthorpe United from Crewe during the 2009 close season. A product of the youth set-up at Gresty Road, Michael spent his first few years as a professional with Crewe before moving on to the Iron. Since then, the energetic central-midfield player who possesses a biting tackle and an eye for spectacular goals has become possibly the most treasured cog in Scunthorpe United's midfield machinery. Michael scored nine goals for the Iron in 2010-11, including a mesmerising long-range effort against Queen?s Park Rangers, to make him the club's top scorer. He has been capped at full international level for Northern Ireland.
Much has been made of Manchester Uniteds chances of once again being in the running for the Premier League title by fans, players and pundits alike.
Most neutral's will agree that Arsenal's pre-season has been an impressive one.
