United Managed To Embarass Themselves

United Managed To Embarass Themselves

Make no mistake: this is a major blow. It's been six years since we last won the FA Cup and it represented our best chance of winning a major trophy this season (the Carling Cup is a nice little thing but it's hardly on the same level) and we blew it, spectacularly.

What's worse, we did it at home. We capitulated against bitter rivals - who happen to be in League One. And we started with our first choice strike partnership. Quite simply there are no positives, none at all. It is an embarassment and humiliation on the grand scale.

There can be no excuses for the performance and the lack of motivation and hunger must be addressed: it seemed that we did not really care which is totally unacceptable. There should have been a gulf in class between the two teams; in reality, we can't even say they did not deserve to win.

Rooney played as someone desperate to win the FA Cup should but only Valencia followed his example after coming on. The rest... they did not look more bothered than by losing a Carling Cup game. I guess Fergie had some strong words with them but he's at fault as well, after all, it's the manager's job to motivate the players (though there is something in the argument that Manchester United players should be motivated simply by wearing the shirt).

There's nothing to analyse about the performance: we were crap, end of. Yes, we had chances but we were always going to have some against a League One team. But we did not create nearly enough because, let me say it again, we were crap. Everyone who played has to take a long, hard look at themselves after this embarassment because with a visit to the council house coming up, our players need to understand their responsibilities.

My heart bleeds when a big club loses a game. Happens nearly every week at our club, u should count your lucky stars you support Manchester United. One bad result and you act as though the world has caved in. Thanks for making our path to the FA Cup a lot easier though!

It's embarrassing but for you to say they never played for the shirt is uncalled for.You have average players like oshea,carrick,fletcher etc. that go above whats expected,your expansive play helps them so you expect more from the team.Other than Rooney & Valencia your team has good squad players not world class.Fergie makes you world class.You havent been at the bad end against lower tier opposition have you? You're blinded by how good you can be,5-0 one week.Blame team selection.

Is there a single United fan out there willing to admit Fergie embarrassed you today with his injury-time squeal? Thought not. Muppets. The whole country rejoices. Ha

Well, I gotta hand it to you, you at least made a comment that you lost. As for where the muppet Rag fans are that usually post on the front section, I have no clue. Congrats Leeds, you fully deserved it, may your hangover be not so bad in the morn.

The outpourings of joy at Leeds' victory from nigh on every fan of every club just shows you how utterly despised United are. Leeds absolutely ran the show today, they were magnificent. WELL DONE LEEDS!!!! If ever you, or any one else, needed evidence that Owen is a busted flush this was it. Such a wa n ker!
