A New Whipping Boy!

A New Whipping Boy!

Losing the first game of the season isn`t something that Manchester United are accustomed to.

In a season whereby every dropped point could be crucial as we go head to head with our neighbours, Manchester City, and with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle lurking in the wings, defeats are sure to come with an inquisition.

This morning, with the tabloid press hitting the news stands, it looks as if Nani has been picked as a potential scapegoat.

Once again, in the light of the failure on Monday night, talk has been resurrected relating to the Portuguese internationals future.

Giving the impression that the tabloid press are desperately trying to rock the United boat, comments are produced, from an unnamed source at Old Trafford that read,

"The club did not think his form at the end of last season put him in a very strong bargaining position over a new deal. Monday was hardly his best either."

"There was an intention to get him on a new four-year contract."

"But initial demands from Nani`s side were way over the top. Right now United are happy to leave it until next summer unless his demands are dropped dramatically. But they won`t sell unless silly money comes in."

Okay, Nani might not have uprooted trees with his performance at Goodison Park but neither did several others.

My fear is that every time United suffer a setback the tabloid media re going to turn to Nani and make him the whipping-boy, something that appears to be a national trait don`t you think!

Nani was the worst of the bunch yeah but you're going to get that in every game. We all know how inconsistent Nani is but ultimately we take the Nani who disappears and loses possession because with him is the nani who can change a game in an instant. When on form he's one of the best wingers in the world. However, that said its getting to a stage now where he's too old and playing at too high a level to be inconsistent on a consistent basis. Either he begins to put in a good/decent shift every game or he gets sold I reckon, we can't afford to keep carrying a player just because he might win us a game if he gets his head out of his arse. He will certainly be moved on if he expects to be up there witty the top earners at the club, take what you can get Nani as no-one else will pay you what we do until you start proving you're worth it and the only way your going to do that is by being consistent.

Really does have to get his consistency sorted out he was horrendously bad against Everton. Like Famous said we know he's good but he's at the age now where this sort of thing should be knocked on the head. I know everyone has off days and don't expect him to win every match on his own the rest of the team were poor as well bar De Gea. But Nani seems to be poor more than is acceptable at this level and this stage of his career.

well he does need a good whipping....the guy comes round and asks for a pay rise...after finishing the season the way he did.... forget monday's game, that's just one game... He plays well for portugal...that doesnt mean United will pay for his performances there...he needs to do it at United as well... if he gets a pay rise...then what should Valencia get, who's been outstanding last year?

Lets be honest he's over rated, his ego is over inflated and he really does ***** all during an entire season. Sell him quick, take the over inflated transfer fee and invest it in someone who actually gives a ***** about the game, the club and the shirt not another primadonna diving**** who expects a pay rise when he is playing some of the worst football I've ever seen him play and he wasn't even up to much previously. This cretin actually thought he was up to Ronaldos level hahahahahahaha.
