So after another home defeat, a lot of people are having a go at Moyes. Is he really to blame?
Winning the title last year just papered over the cracks. A midfield general has been missing ever since Keane left, and a world class creative midfielder has been missing for a long time. A lot of people may disagree or think I'm being harsh but far too many players in the squad are just not good enough. Cleverly and Kagawa are just not good enough, in my opinion Cleverly has never been good enough, he puts in okay performances from time to time but he's not first team material, he wouldn't get in the City or Chelsea team.
Kagawa may have been great at Dortmund but he's never adapted to the premiership. Evra is well past his best, and gets caught out defensively far too often. Nani has always been far too inconsistent and seems to perform when he wants to. Fabio and Chris Smalling are 2 players I would look to sell ASAP. What did Fabio do whilst on loan at QPR; not very much, barely played from what I can remember. Smalling had a lot of potential but is far too error prone for my liking. Buttner played quite well today but is no real competition for Evra. Ferdinand and Vidic are far too injury prone, and Ferdinand should definitely not be offered a new deal.
How often are we going to have the same old conversations about Rooney? Will he stay or will he go? In my opinion it was obvious he wanted to join Chelsea in the summer, and I would sell him now. Yes he has been the best player this season but do you really want to keep a player who doesn't want to play for the club? I believe mistakes were made in the summer transfer market, things were left to the last minute and Fellaini was bought as a panic buy. A lot of players need to be sold and world class replacements signed. The players I'd go for would be Coentrao, he would be a great replacement for Evra. Kurt Zouma would be my long term replacement for Vidic, he's big and strong and one of the best young centre backs in the world. Tiote would add some steel to the midfield, Marco Reus would be my replacement for Nani, he is far more consistent and would add a lot more goals to the team. Draxler or Fabregas would add great creativity to the team.
