    Two holding in front of 3 finally will shut up the whiners

  2. Jino Moja says:

    Nice to see Fellaini back. I strongly believe he’ll come good. He’s played too few matches (while carrying an injury) to be considered a flop.

  3. Rukky E. Atebefia says:

    We just need three points regardless of the team selection, c’mon guys step it up. Decent line up btw

  4. wayne barker says:

    Jino agree with you mate I rate Fellaini been getting unjust abuse from the Moyes haters

  5. ys says:

    No wayne , whiners will always whine. questions like why werent kags or chico played. Or the team on papers shud win 10-0 blah blah
    Glad to see fellaini back. hoefully our front 4 can click all together

  6. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    Well Fellaini’s had a shitload of time to get used to his surroundings now, he’s bagged a lot of training minutes under his belt. There is no plausible reason any more for him to be underperforming. So here’s to hoping he starts performing like we all know he can.

    FINALLY we have Mata, Rooney and Januzaj behind VP. Hopefully they don’t give Moyes ANY reason to put Ashley Young back in the line-up.

    It’s a bit scary that we have no CBs on the bench. Hopefully Rio and Vida don’t get injured.

    Everton and Southampton lost. Simply put We HAVE to win this game.

  7. wayne barker says:

    Rukky save it if Tony V and or Young had been picked you’d be whining already

  8. sir liam matt says:

    Great lineup, thank Goodness young is not there again, Rafear injured?

  9. Mursyid Omar says:

    Seriously Kagawa hand in a transfer request already! what a fucking shame. David Fucking Moyes has made 300k Wayne Rooney bigger than the club. Fucking prick!

  10. sir liam matt says:

    Fellaini, has come good now, this United not Everton anymore, so step up ur Game man!!! be our next yaya.

  11. wayne barker says:

    3 man midfield will help Fellaini.Omar give it a fucking rest Muppet

  12. Tommy says:

    Good line up, Jamie Redknapp is spot on when he has said “Worse teams have won the champions league” Its a cup compeitition and the best teams do not always win cup competitions, I am looking ahead to Tuesday already clearly haha

  13. Redfrog says:

    Very happy to see this attacking 4. At last Moyes dropped Valencia and Young ! Come on lads, We need a win here, with style will be better !!! Come on United !

  14. arthurV cat says:

    good lord has moyes been drinking??? no grafters like valencia and welbeck to make us boring and predictable??…an actual attacking 11 that looks to have good shape and attacking intent…lets hope the old dinosuar has finally learned his lesson

  15. Mav says:


    Lol what? Yes worse teams have one but we do not have the defensive fortitude. I have always said that.

    Aganst Madrid last year, the minute we went down to 10 I knew we would lose.

    2-0 up against Bayern and we collapse.

    Our team just isnt built to play the kind of football taht Chelsea played to win. If we went to the Nou Camp and went down to 10 like Chelsea, we would wilt under the pressure so fast


  16. sir liam matt says:

    More like.
    ……………De gea….
    ………… ..Rooney……
    ……….. Van persie……

  17. sir liam matt says:

    moyes has put up 41 diffrent line up, has never stick to any one. lets just hope this his is last. and prefer lineup.

  18. Rukky E. Atebefia says:

    Lol Wayne c’mon not today, I no how much u want those two in the team just chill today.

  19. RDK says:

    A fair few times this season the line up has looked like a 4231 on paper, only for to be a flat 442 with the two players on the left of the right that are meant to be tucked in being kept out wide. The full backs are meant to come forward and give width in this formation while the two holding mids fill in any gaps by them going forward, but we usually see two of our front 4 keeping out wide making it the flat 442.

    Nice little interchange between Januzaj and Van Persie there though. Also those Palace fans near the corner flag looked crazy.

  20. wayne barker says:

    Rukky I never whine about team selection I support whoever is selected
