I am a United fan, every since I was 5 years old, raised in Manchester by a United fan of 60 years.
I now live in Stoke, who knows why. Still get a few games in, nowhere near as much as I did pre-glazers.
I am a stair designer. It's dull, but it pays the bills. I dream of being a manga artist.
Everything else? Play footy, trying to join a team. Not bothered about making it big, just love a good run
around rain or shine.
I saw the XI and didn't even want to watch the match. I did though, and like you said it was disgusting. Can't say I didn't expect it though.
I better wake up tomorrow and see that Moyes has been sacked.
He's taken us to the cleaners now and for the next 5.5 years. Pure stupidity that contract was. Absolute bullshit.
I'd play that first lineup in a heartbeat. Moyes never will. Doesn't have the balls to put Rooney in CM.
Or both ....
No doubt. Moyes just doesn't play him. Seriously Rooney in midfield next to Fellaini with Mata, Kagawa, Januzaj behind RvP would be deadly.
Moyes is just ...
Yeah I did see it on a replay. I guess the first thing that comes to mind is toothless and lethargic in attack. Broken in defense. Gaping hole in midfield. Which right now is entirely par for the course.
Moyes not changing his tactics was a foregone conclusion. If he were going to change, he would have done so a long time ago because 4-4-2 and crossing didn't work earlier in the season either.
I will admit I didn't get the chance to see the match as yet. But from the looks of things in the comments and just stats alone, I'm not surprised we didn't win. Shocking draw at the last minute sure. But I went into this match fully expecting either a tough 1-0 win or a draw to be honest.
Also, at this point I'm already beyond being pissed at Moyes. He's not going to get sacked unless we get freaking relegated. Even getting into the Europa league at this point may be a challenge.
My god our performance. Moyes ... nothing to say. We're so done.
Hey man, I kind of left you hanging a couple of hundred days, oops...Sorry I'm just really weighted down by all this college work and personal happenings, I think I may be making a comeback though, although I can't guarantee how long it'll be :P.
Back to United, well...this season hasn't exactly gone as we expected...I guess the job came too fast for Moyes to take in all at once, but I think if we just show him some faith, as the majority of us are now things'll get better. Mata's a superb signing, especially since we got him under the noses of Chelsea and Mourinho! That being said he isn't exactly the person to solve our midfield woes and more likely displaces a winger or Kagawa from the lineup. Fletcher's back thank Jesus, and he's still got some of that form with him, he's welcome into our hapless midfield and has looked excellent.
As for our strikers I see injury has come back to haunt van Persie, but let's hope it's just this one time, because my God, how badly have we missed him...Rooney doesn't make any of this any sweeter with the way it's looking on his contract renewal, I've just read Collymore's piece on how Rooney will be respected but not loved and I agreed 100% because the way he's treating United and us is just plain disrespectful.
Now on to our defense it seems Rio's time is definitely up, Vida is aging (NO! T____T), Evra's on his last season, Fabio is definitely gone (T____T) and his brother is a 50/50. Definitely a bit worrying but Jones, Smalling and Evans kind of make up for it, except none of them can play the wings very well and I don't think Buttner is up to it yet.
And to top it all off we're way down in the league and been knocked out of the domestic cups from teams we should have beat easily. Grim tidings indeed, let's hope for some light at the end of the tunnel and another great midfield signing.
BUT WORST OF ALL, Milan are having an EVEN WORSE season than United :(
Always happens to the teams I like...
So...when you're done reading my book, I mean comment, give a reply on what you think and I promise to not take 200 days to send another message.
Thanks mate, I definitely need it. My boss isn't giving me any holidays for study leave and so I have no time to revise! Last exam tomorrow.
I have no idea what is going on in training. Didn't Jones kick Fellaini and injure him once? Why is he kicking him in the back? What are they doing? Karate?
Hahaha yeah Mazoomy absolutely loves Young, it's good to see tbh. I have seen too much abuse for Young. I hate diving but how come Young gets the stick but Adnan doesn't?
And why are there more supporters for Nani over Young? I kind of feel bad for Young. I never thought he was good enough to play for United, but it's harsh how our fans treat Young.
I know right, STOKE. Absolute joke. Why are we so aggressive? Fellaini, Rooney and Vidic are the only ones who play rough. How has Jones got 6 yellows this season, Adnan with 6, and RVP with 5. This has never happened before.
I'd never sell Hernandez either, he's just too good. But honestly can't see him staying after the summer window. I hope I'm wrong.
Coentrao, Zouma, Gundogan/Vidal, Draxler would be an absolute dream! Mata is just as good, if not better than Draxler, so that's 1/4 haha. Chop chop Moyes, the clocks ticking.
For the first time this season, I think that Rooney might actually leave in the summer. Probably to Chelsea but I hope it's somewhere like Madrid. So I'm not sure Moyes is trying to build the team around Rooney anymore. I hope I'm wrong and he stays. But we'll have to agree to disagree on that.
Everton play in red? Ah man that's depressing. Tell him, we're actually on the exact same points as Everton were last season, with the EXACT same goal difference. But they were 5th and we are 7th now. Apart from that it's the same. What a disgrace. We need to turn this around ASAP. Only 15 games left.
Anyways, on to more of a positive note.
I am so happy we bought Mata, absolutely amazing signing! Some might say it's a panic buy but it's a bloody good panic buy if you ask me! 37m is a lot of money but Rooney, Mata, RVP can destroy any defence. No doubt about that. We got Arsenal's best player and now arguably Chelsea's best player. Yeah he's not going to fix all the problems, but he's certainly going to make a huge difference. RVP MataRooney Valencia That front 4 apart from Valencia will give our opponents nightmares. Moyes loves Valencia but honestly I'd pick Adnan over him even on the right. Narrow wingers should be a must especially with Mata coming in. At least until July, depending on Rooney staying or not. What do you think?
