    What is on my mind?Is what David Moyes should do................................
    1. show who is boss
    2. be more assertive
    3. relegate Rio Ferdinand to the Zinedine Zidane role
    3. pawn off Nemanja Vidic to Barcelona/MIlan 15m maybe
    4. offer Ashley Young to anyone 8m maybe
    5. sell Nani to anyone 12m maybe
    6. sell Patrice Evra ,monaco might be interested
    7.sell Robin Van Persie , there would be certain buyers
    8.MAKE WAYNE ROONEY CAPTAIN OF MANCHESTER UNITED
    9.MAKE JONNY EVANS VICE CAPTAIN1 AND PHIL JONES VICE CAPTAIN2 OF MANCHESTER UNITED
    10.get NIKE to pepare a deal;like no other for Robert Lewandowski
    11. activate Jorge Resurrección Merodio16m buy out clause
    12. sign up Nemanja Matic or Ilkay Gungdoan
    13. sign up a World Class Ball Playing Centre Back:Ezequiel Garay ,Eliquiam Mangala
    14. in 6 months the team must reflect David Moyes
    15.David De Gea/Rafael Da Silva,Jonny Evans,Phil Jones(or your The New Centre Back),Fabio da Silva/Jorge Resurrección Merodio(Michael Carrick),Nemanja Matic(or Marroune Fellaini)/Antonio Valencia(Wilifred Zaha),WAYNE ROONEY(or Shinji Kagawa),Adnan Januzsaj/Robert Lewandowski.

    But i am just a fan a wanna be soccer manager a totally commited MANCHESTER UNITED fan,all i would say to all Manchester United fans is that we enjoyed the HIGHS,lets go through the lows knowing that soOner than later MANCHESTER UNITED would be on the up again,for the rest of the world......the mice play when the cats away,so play all you can.......cuz you know what is coming..........

    WE ARE MANCHESTER UNITED......form is temporal,CLAS IS PERMANENET AND FOREVER

    I suppose you're right. Now that I think about it properly, it doesnt seem very viable XD

    Hernandez will leave if he wants to find first team football. He wouldnt go cheaply, and shouldnt go to another English Club. It'd be sad to see him go :( But I think he deserves first team football.

    Issue is, we arent playing fluid/unpredictable. Moyes likes rigid play, thats just his style.

    I still believe Fellaini sucks, and was a mistake. We supposedly bought him for his defensive quality, issue is... he has no defensive qualities. Against Yaya Toure or anyone else his size, he wont even challenge them. If you note, we win more games when hes NOT on the pitch.

    I think we have a selection dilemma. How can we fit Kagawa/Rooney/Rvp/Hernandez on the same team? Interesting question no? If we were to somehow do that, we'd maybe be in a better spot. It'd have to be a complete compromise though, so Rooney in CM, Kagawa in the hole, RvP out wide etc.

    Greg, please stop saying "has proved". This is grammatically incorrect. I noticed that you say this all the time. The correct way is: "Has proven". Just thought to make you aware of this.

    Hello greg who would you have as your top 3 for ballon d'or this year? In order

  • Dan Riaz posted 249 days ago

    I just read the Chicha/Kagawa one! Really interesting question. I actually have been asking myself that very question for a while since they're both basically in the same boat.

    Thats no worries!

    You're actually a very good writer. I think all you'd need to do is write a little more often and that'll be enough for me :D :D :D
