'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bewildwered!

Bewildered is probably the word that sums matters up at the moment.

With three games played we`ve accumulated just two points from the nine available.

We`re probably seven points off of the pace come the conclusion of the days fixtures, but that`s not what is bewildering me.

It`s the fact that whilst we continue to perform at a standard below that we usually would do, our new manager sits there, cool as a cucumber, making notes when the situation is calling out for him to go a little manic.

I thought Louis van Gaal had a reputation for being tough, for being forthright and being a master tactician but now I`m not so sure.

After the game the 63 year-old Dutchman had this to say about the game to BT Sport,

'We were the stronger team, certainly in the second half. "

'We created chances but you have to score. That is where we have failed. The progress is there but you have to win."

'A club like Manchester United has to win. We have two points from nine and that's disappointing.'


It damn well is, even more so when you recall just what Chelsea did to Burnley when they went to Turf Moor, which makes me want to ask the question - Just how far have we slipped?

Well at least we kept a clean sheet even with that defence. Valencia's crossing is beyond crap now and our passing overall is really bad. Our midfield engine room is seriously lacking some bite and general ability.

With respect, Moyes will be feeling more and more vindicated as the season goes on at this rate. Could it be that the weight of expectation is killing the team? Also, this 352 malarky is relatively radical, it seems and will take time for both Man U and QPR's defences to comprehend.

Valencia just tries his luck with his crossing. He just randomly chooses a crossing technique; whether its high, low, floating or drilled, and hits it with a random amount of power in the hope that it proves to be the right type of cross and, because he doesn't even look for a target, that someone would randomly get on the end of it.

Moyes can feel vindicated all he likes but the fact is a bad start but good finish (hopefully) is more promising and less of a cause for concern than the good start and poor finish.

No issue with the 3-5-2 being too radical comment. What with a new manager, a new philosophy, new backroom staff and new squad mates coming and old squad mates going for me to try and get the players to re-learn their positions in a new system is perhaps just asking too much.

Your problems stems from injury to key personells; Herrera, Smalling, Shaw and the rest. It'll be better when everyone is fit...

...Rojo, Di Maria and Blind will also either join up or gel with the team; it's all about chemistry...
