I'm so bored watching us lately I couldn't care if we win, lose or draw just as long as the games finished. Honestly the intensity of the boredom overrides the catalogue of emotions felt from losing. I knew exactly what I was in for as soon as I saw Valencia, Young and Cleverley starting over Januzaj, Kagawa and Fletcher/Fellaini. Moyes showed Olympiacos too much respect, he went for the once upon a time solid and reliable performers wary of Olympiacos threat and looking to nullify it as opposed to strut our own stuff. Moyes needs to understand this is Manchester United, there's no conservative, wary or defensive approach, we strut our game, play offensive football, look to utilize our array of attacking talent and let the opposition worry about us, not vice-versa. He also needs to understand having more possession than the opposition isn't the same thing as playing attacking football, if you're dominating possession in the oppositions half that's good, that puts pressure on them but knocking about the ball in your own half however is suicidal, stupid and a waste of time. Summer reinforcements and a clear out is desperately needed and there's massive question marks over whether the manager should be the first of the clear out as opposed to bringing in the reinforcements.
Get rid of the Ginger Goblin now and allow an actual top manager to rebuild the team. Who in their right mind would hand Moyes 200 million to spend to build a team in his image, a one dimensional, dour, inept, devoid of ideas *****wit. Just get Klopp already.
I predicted a draw but this is just a ******** shambles.
"I'd like to remind you that when we had bad times here, the club stood by me. The board stood by me, the staff stood by me and the players stood by me. Your job now is to stand by your new manager." Sir Alex Ferguson
Makes our result last week Against the strongest and Arguably best team on planet with10 men seem a world class effort after tonight, how the mighty have fallen
The only saving grace Moyes has got now really is the fact that the current team par 6 or 7 players is woeful and not yet moulded into his image. Typically by this stage with a new manager even if results aren't going entirely your way there's always some positives, something to get excited about for when things come together but for me I'm not seeing anything. We get the odd good game but nothing concrete to really get excited about and get our hopes up on. The only positive outlook on things us fans can have at the moment is in the promises that we're going into the Summer and finally buying the quality and calibre of player we need. 6 year deal and Fergie backing or not I can't see Moyes lasting until the end, or possibly even midway point of next season if results continue and things still look bleak with nothing to indicate things will change.
You must keep Moyes - he knows what he is doing even though it might not seem like it. Also please keep all your players and don't buy any new ones. And give Rooney more money, he's deserved it.
This will cheer you up.
This ManU team just does not cut it ..... they are just a decent team that overachieved under RedNose, shows they had the Fear Of God when playing under the scarlet pimpernel. Now under Moyes they just don't bother to earn their salaries. And Rooney's new deal shows the level of desperation at ManU. It's just too much what you'll have offered him. It's true that you need to stand by your manager ..... but at the end of the season your club needs to take a call ... Can Moyes really inspire a new beginning, even with new players , or is he not cut out for a top club like ManU.
We would be standing by Moyes if he looked like he was learning from his mistakes but is he? It's the same 5hite every match why does he persist with Cleverly I honestly believe we would be better with ten men than playing that waste of flesh.
Thats it MotorMad, its not our league position or even our results that are the problem, we can except that but the fact that the same mistakes and the same tactics are employed week in week out with the same results just proves that Moyes is one dimensional and in modern footballing terms he's a dinosaur. Now the Blind Faith Brigade and the Cult of Fergie clowns will be in to bash me for this but we need rid of Moyes now. "Fergie said blah blah blah" ye he did and he also bought Bebe, Young, Valencia, Smalling, and told us Tom Cleverley will be world class. I think its time to put Fergie out to pasture for real this time. Maybe Moyes can look after him in his old age.
