Whats going on at Manchester United?


We all knew that when SAF called it a day he would be very hard to replace.But my god as a united fan this is very hard to take.United are sitting in 7th position 3 points behind Spurs who are in 6th and we are half way through the season.Now the rumours have started again about Wayne Rooney wanting to leave.There is even some talk about Van Persie not being happy.No real quality players have come in and none on the horizon, so what is going on.This was all predicted by tv pundits and even the man on the street knew United would struggle without new players coming in.So why did the board let this happen? As a fan i am shocked that no top players have been signed this season.Obviously someone at United thought the current squad was good enough this season.You got it wrong......SPLASH THE CASH AND SORT IT OUT.......Before they slip further down the table.

Have United seriously been linked with Vito Mannone?

You don't make him keep the staff but are you telling me that if Fergie said to Moyes it's best to keep the staff Motes would've ignored him?

A lot of players looking very average at the minute but are these players really as bad as the table shows? Definately need at least 3 top class players in but some good young players there who i believe will come good given time. In desperate need of a leader on the pitch aswell. Was impossible job replacing fergie, gonna need patience im afraid.

Exactly and unfortunately for United a lot of those players haven't gone on to show their true potential yet. Cleverly, jones

@bricka It sequentially true as the players that he did bring in for last 3 seasons are surely for moyes to build upon.

I think the blame has to fall on SAF, now before you spit out you breakfast let me explain: let's face it your owned by Americans (like arsenal) so they have to take advise etc from others, Fergie left Moyes with probably the worst squad I've ever seen at old Trafford. And yes I know you won the league last year but you were virtually unchallenged and RVP won you the league with a little help from Rooney. So it's no wonder that if the teams around you have stepped up their game and you have no RVP that you would slip down the table. Fergie has made a descent buy in years Ryan Giggs is still one of you best players, Scholes had to be brought out of retirement last season to help you along and so what does Fergie do? He leaves! Not only that but he should have insisted that Moyes kept the back room staff (MIke Phealan etc) to enable a smooth transition. Plus the fact that David Gill left it was a rotten job for any manager let alone one that has no real champions league experience. Now I'm not saying Moyes hasn't made mistakes but if Jose is struggling at a club he's managed before with a much better squad then what would you expect? I just think Fergie could have made it a lot easy for the next manager

@brightside_94 United again created no chances. Only goal came from a set piece yet again. All I see is cross and clearance. Behind the times prehistoric tactics.

@Doozers20 Cleverly played bad, it was clearly seen when fletcher came in, the game suddenly shifted united's favour but to nothing. Although they penetrated even deeper than the earlier half. Yes, midfield is definitely very important.

Reading some of the comments from his interview, I am amazed at what moyes is coming out with.

On the penalty challenge... 'we had a player booked for a similar challenge the other day'

On the free kick leading up to the 1st goal...'it was never a free kick, it was our free kick' how did he work that out?

On the refs in general... 'it looks like were having to play against them as well as the opposition'

Don't know what planet he's on, and even if he was right, united should be able to overcome a few bad decisions.

The kicker for me though was... 'we just need to keep going, we didn't do awful lot wrong' well no except for the terrible goals, however at united just not doing wrong isn't good enough.

Then... the crowd were fantastic tonight, the players deserved it because they did well enough yo get a result'

Finally... the players put in a strong performance tonight, it's not far away and it's coming' what's not far away? Puff the magic dragon?

I hope this is just a tactic to deflect attention, because if he truly thinks that is acceptable for united, he shouldn't be there!

@brightside_94 exactly, all round play.

@Doozers20 the finishing and services were the main concern and also the tempo at which united should play was completely lacking, I heard shouts like 'Give it to Danny' it was certainly a disgrace.

@brightside_94 United should be creating far more than 1 chance in the 1st half and 1 goal.

The only players in our entire squad that any other top team would be interested in are Rooney and rvp.. Maybe januzaj for raw talent but he is no where near the finished article.. We don't have enough brilliant players and without fergie driving us on we have become on easy target for teams much lower down the table... We lack any form of leadership, especially when Rooney is absent.. Gonna be a rough couple of seasons for the lads.. You just know a will have a "£100 million war chest" to unleash in the transfer window but will only spend 10 mill of it on an average player... The Rot set in when the yanks bought the club

People, including myself, said pre season that SAF was worth 10-15 points to Man United through pure quality. His tactical awareness and man management is second to none. How Man United's season is going is certainly no surprise to me. Yes, they have pretty much the same team as last season, but that is a team full of average players. How many truly world class players do United have!? You've players like Vidic and Ferdinand who were awesome back in the day, but now they're past it and their replacements are just plain average. A midfield of Carrick, Cleverley and Fletcher is distinctly average and why Giggs is still playing, I'll never know. Underperforming players like Nani, Young and Valencia doesn't help. I can see Rooney and RVP leaving if you don't make Champions League, then you'll be in trouble. Desperate times when you're relying massively on an 18 year old.

@Doozers20 it was in first half man, right before swansea lead. he miskicked it or it was to become a clear goal. but he later reclaimed it well in the equaliser. chica's losing touch nowadays. but whatever it was let it rest like that.
