Hey, PM me your email address, I want to invite you to the BR challenge cup. A mini league, just for us United fans :)
Yeah that happened. Though it was a good thing it ended IMO. Think of the Streak as a storytelling device. It had to end, otherwise it would have no use. I mean, it would be pointless and all for nothing. Streaks are meant to be broken, thats the point of them. Besides, its not like Undertaker would retire with 22-0 posters all over his house. Its a scripted winning streak, not a legit one. The main issue was that it had become bigger than all the stars they had on the roster. Nobody could've beaten it. Lesnar aside, there are only 4 other people who could've really beaten the streak without fans complaining. Kane, Cena, Stone Cold, The Rock. So they made a good choice with Lesnar. Especially since it gives him a reason to stick around.
Hey, I'm sorry for responding late. My reply wasn't posted o.O
Januzaj definitely has been rising to the occasion. What a player he can turn out to be. However, I do think we United fans overhype him a little bit. I do agree that he has a world-class ceiling, but comparing him to guys like Ronaldo, Giggs, giving him the #7 next season, saying he's better than Draxler/Isco atm is just ridiculous. I'm also worried, I think we are relying on him a tad too much. He's already our best winger at 18 lol.
I also agree about Rooney. He's not been playing that CF position that much nowadays as compared to before, now he's been dropping deeper more, providing the great long balls to wingers (who can't capitalize on Rooney's doing) and keeping the midfield stable. He's been extremely good and efficient at it but he doesn't really like that position :/
I also think another high point for us is the rise of Jones and Evans. Jones has been in the rise for a year now, and he has been fantastic. Both of them have (bar the injuries and performances off them, of course)
Low points for me are:
THE INJURIES: Fellaini, Young, Jones, Valencia, Nani, Rooney, van Persie, Vidic, Ferdinand, Cleverley, Evans, Evra, Carrick... Basically our whole first team was out injured most of the season/ had to play right after injury so were obviously in bad form. I feel that's why we've been dropping so many points.
I do agree with the psychology and our home turf. Old Trafford doesn't scare teams anymore .Its fear factor is now gone.
But my biggest problem this season (and with many fans) is (most's) lack of respect towards Moyes. I am probably the only full supporter of Moyes on this website lol. Most of them are the plastics who scream for Moyes to be out with no logical reason, but some others do have sensible ideas on why they don't really feel comfortablewith Moyes.
Thing is, just because of our bad performances, people blame Moyes for everything, even stuff he doesn't have much control over. Our performances recently (although Moyes's decisions against Sunderland were shockingly bad) are not really Moyes's fault. The players have been absolutely terrible (most of them). Also, people blaming Moyes in everything for transfers doesn't make sense, Woodward is the main iproblem there.
Strootman should have been ours, I agree with that.... That was a bad, bad move not getting him.
Also, did you know that de Rossi said that had we made a bid for him last summer, he would have signed with us? When I heard that I went mad lol
People should remember that Moyes is a guy who turned a relegation-threatened Everton to a top-4 contender. Moyes was my choice for the job (him or Mourinho, but Chelsea's spot was available, so no reason Mou would come to us), so I'm willing to give him time.
And as you said, taking over someon like SAF is never an easy task!
Also, Mata :D Exciting signing, but definitely not the most important player we need. Our attack will now be a lot more fluid and creative though
sorry for the essay lolol
Maybe your account was glitched? Idk? You dont always have to get banned or anything.
We will stick with him, and I think it will be worth it. Stability is really important at a club, and we're one of the few clubs who trust our manager. We have to be patient, and wait to see what he can come up with. Its difficult because he has inherited a subpar team, but its just that nobody could really see it beforehand because Fergie's brilliance masked it. Moyes is a good manager, and just needs time thats all. It was unrealistic to expect a Premier League trophy in his first season.
An overhaul? Maybe. What we need is:
1. Better backroom staff
2. More aggressive play
3. Get rid of the deadwood
4. Sign upgrade players
Last nights match? I didnt watch it since I fell asleep during the day LOL. I heard we did really well in the first 15 mins so... maybe thats a positive. And Chicha added to his Anti-Chelsea record :D
I guess i was pissed off
Wut, did you make a new profile Felix?
Our season is a rough reminder that we really need to rebuild our team. Moyes isn't a miracle worker, a good manager, but not Fergie. He can't bring the best out of "average" players.
Hey there, what's your opinion on our season until now?
