    Chicharito, januzaj, Jones have been our better players. At least they are putting in some effort.

  2. martin the nairobian says:

    Anderson for jones anyone????cleverly doing well one of his biggest critics.
    Evans would be a better midfielder than jones imho .has composure on the ball,accurate with his passes and can actually try to dribble past an opponent.
    Today ive noticed everytime the ball gets played to evans or vidc;half the time jones is hiding behind a newcastle player..what kind of nidfielder is that???ando certainly coudnt do worse im preety sure

  3. I dont like Welbeck says:

    That’s how it feels to support a team having a mid-table manager and coaching staff who won nothing in their coaching career..having mentality of 0-0 unbeaten run of games…and talk crap in the press i will fix this,,dily daly that and nothing positive being displayed on the pitch.

  4. xyz says:

    I must be watching a different match – individual errors are killing us, not the formation. RVP passing a freekick across the pitch instead of crossing it into the box – Nani did brilliantly to bail us out – could easily have cost us a goal. Nani then taking a short corner and losing possession. If we waste attacking set pieces like that we’ll never score. But the “Moyes out” brigade will probably tell me Moyes told RVP to pass it sideways and not cross it so it’s his fault.

    If/when we score and win, what does that say for the formation? Does it mean 4-4-2 was the right formation afterall and all you trolls were wrong? Or that formation isn’t key it’s how the players perform on the pitch that is the over-riding factor in deciding whether you win or lose? Either way you’ll have a lot of explaining to do…..but then you’d probably prefer we lose so you can “tell us so”….

  5. NefariousVirtuoso88 says:

    It’s so obvious they have three in the middle and we have two. Get Hernandez off for Valencia, Jones for Anderson and Adnan in behind RVP. Match them up in the middle and get hold of this game.

  6. I dont like Welbeck says:

    Until now United job for Moyes is so huge..the man is out of his depth
    just praying for senior players to step up and set a bit of standard.
    His coaching staff i don’t think they are doing anything to give moyes some ideas.
    Man united is for huge expectation and pressure if they thought it is about icing in the cake and be it all champions and nothing about tacticaly sound, man management better, doing right thing in the right they are fucked!!!

  7. sir matt martin says:

    You are a fool for saying formations dont win matches, why dont u tell barcelona that.

  8. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    THAT WAS FUCKING IN. Anita’s hand stopped that ball from going in. UGHHHHH.

  9. NairobiRed says:

    This is looking much better. NEwcastle have offered absolutely nothing in this game and united capitalise.

  10. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    And just as you say that, Evra goes to sleep AGAIN, Sissoko glides past him….. BOOM 1-0.

  11. I dont like Welbeck says:

    Hahahaha stupid from Moyes

  12. adaeze suzy says:

    Xyz i hope you are happy?
    Tactics win game not players!
    You english should comeout from your caves and develop footie tactics.

  13. NairobiRed says:

    Why are we conceding each time we look threatening. It’s as if we can only be hopelessly mundane or risk loosing by having some impetus.

  14. adaeze suzy says:

    I hate to admit but 90% of t’he english united fans are has clueless as davey moyes. Keep blaming t’he players while our idiotic technical crew keeps exposing how clueless they are to t’he rest of t’he world.

  15. sir matt martin says:

    @ adaeze suzy
    that is what they are as clueless as david moyes.. exply that Troll wayne berkass.

  16. Gordon Lynch says:

    We are outnumbered 3 to 1 in midfield. I am at a loss with Steve Round the assistant manager. What the hell is the coaching staff doing. I hope SAF is not at Old Trafford to witness this spineless performance. Zaha on…..Anderson on……………where is Sir Bobby Charlton when you need him?

  17. sir matt martin says:

    Now all the Moyes Lovers let us all hold hands wit David moyes and give him 12 more years and sing coombayer..

  18. dromole says:

    All forms of records are being broken at OT.
    God help us!

  19. Jacques Muller says:

    To all those you still stand behind moyes, you all really dont get it.

    The reason he makes changes that dumbfound everyone is because of arrogance. Sir Alex possessed that too, but Sir Alex was always willing to learn and improve. To hire people who were better than him at certain things.

    Moyes’ choice to restructure the training and staff from the bottom up speaks volumes of his arrogance and attitude that whatever he knows is “best”. By continually playing player’s out of position, he is enforcing that idea. Even today. With nani on the left ans adnan on the right. The best play of adnan came when he found himself on the left.

    Dark days ahead. It is going to get much worse before it gets better. His systems may eventually work (who knows), but don’t expect anything for at least 5 years.

    When it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…unless your name is Moyes

  20. thomas says:

    Really depressing to watch again. Even after going behind things hardly got better, that’s what really hurts. Fans were silent all the game though, don’t blame them towards the end but all makes miserable viweing. Think some big changes are needed – still don’t know why we gave Nani a new contract. Why we still have Anderson too.

    Be nice to have a block users on this – particularly plastic idiots like sir matt martin + adaeze suzy

  21. united till i die says:

    Until our midfield is completely overhauled expect more of the same. It’s up to Moyes and the board what direction we go from here.

  22. UnitedFaithful says:

    Absolutely heartbroken,that performance showed how confident the entire team really is,thought a goal would bring these players out of their shells,but sadly it didn’t come.

  23. dromole says:

    Moyes can not take all the blame. some of our players need to hang their heads in shame players like nani who kept pulling out of 50-50 tackles like a chicken. Show some heart for fuck sake! It’s beginning to seem like some of our players want to get Moyes the sack. You wonder why someone like rio had to come out with that shit statement this week of all weeks! I’m so fucking sad! I gotta dive in them bottles now!!

  24. Dr.Hannibal says:

    moyes not to be blamed.
    1. management change.(sir fergie & glazers lap dog Gill)
    2. summer transfer debacle .
    3. Tough fixture list.
    4.injury to key players.
    5.bad luck.
    recipes for disaster thats it.

  25. Dr.Hannibal says:

    Hope moyes gets on with job and sets his own team
    and scouting department . which the previous scouts failed miserably in identifying proper midfielder. hope moyesy gets some player in mould of gravesen or atreta (now at arsenal) atleast better than nothing.

  26. adaeze suzy says:

    Thomas am plastic for knowing that you and t’he rest of t’he proud english imbeciles knew nothing about football right?
    Somebody else writes 6 points vindicating what moyes is turning our dear club into.

  27. sir matt martin says:

    @ thomas
    U just as silly as david moyes for Sackin the whole tecnica crew which has been one of the best for years even befor ur father moyes dreams of becomin a coach. you english fans need to knw that footy has gon beyond useing a 442 time and time again. @ thomas if u dont knw what to say next time then fucckoff.
