    at the top of this page I’m seeing retro Utd shirts with the banner ” remember the good old days ”
    for f*** sake what is going on . Ferguson got to powerful and started to believe his own publicity , he saw Moyes as his former self except the game has moved on massively .
    Should have got Mourinho even if only for two seasons .
    Fergie let this team become barely average and then got out before he got found out

    There’s really not much more to be said (apart from the one word). A shambles from top to bottom right now.

    These were the days when footballers played for the passion and not the cash

  6. TopRed123 says:

    When the tactics are as bad an uninspiring as those of Moyes and co. I really don’t blame the players for not giving a fuck. It’s like having a sports car but you can only drive it in first gear. You can continue to blame all the players but the fact is that they did never respond to Moyes and his ways. Are we really going to get rid of half the squad in the hope that it will somehow make Moyes change his views on how to play football? GIve him 10 of the best players in the world and he would suck the life out of them in a month and we’d still end up playing the same shit as he has served up thus far.

    i want moyes to succeed so much, but reality is saying there has been no improvement, or sign of improvement, what so ever. crystal palace was a good display, but theres been alot more that have been boring, flat and centred on how to contain the opposition rather then winning a game. but, if your going to sack the manager of one of the most high pressured jobs in the sport you need an adequate alternative. who do people want us to bring in? technically now is a perfect time as it is now at a stage where it cant get much worse so the only way is up for the next manager, meaning alot less pressure.

    there arent many managers available unless we find a hidden gem at a club where we are so much bigger that the club feels the manager deserves the oportunity (sort of like ole to cardiff) .. theres an arguement for andre villas boas. last season with bale as his main man he was highly rated and everyone was giving him good write ups.. tottenham then break their promise and sell his star man and bring in players that were 4th or 5th on his wish list and he is made the fall guy. i honestly think he could be a good option if we dont stick with moyes

    Dan, Laurent Blanc maybe? PSG have unlimited funds but the French league is a joke. I wouldn’t mind Larry White.

    @ Tommy
    Too true. I’m trying to see past the mountain of cash their all earning and trying to get behind them, they’re still only human after all. If I’m being honest with myself I can’t. Scholes was the last player who really embodied what I’d grown up believing what it was to to really support the players. The guy epitomised everything that was right about the game and he was the shining example of how a player can still relate to and had that connection with fans, despite the wealth which meant he could operate within a different universe. Bottom line, he was one of us and you got the impression that his bull shit detector was as accurate his passing.

    Sad thing is, there isn’t one player in the squad now who instills even a fraction of this belief. The one shining beacon this season has been the emergence of Januzaj, even this though doesn’t really lessen the hollowness and the feeling of something that was once so good, genuine now has gone bad.

    I guess it’s the modern game and it’s the price we’ve all had to bear for taking the cash. Now in my mid thirties, I’m just glad I got at an age where I could appreciate the genuine, unsullied good will when Fergie masterminded the first title winning side. It wasn’t about the success, it was the relentless excitement that seemed to engulf every game.

    Perhaps a few barren seasons will see us shedding the bloated, glory hunting greed surrounding the club. I fear though that the cynicism of the game and the obsession with money that now typifies the majority of players and hanger’s on will only increase.

    Despite the template of the club having been laid down by Sir Matt and the babes and all the success of Sir Alex’s years, I can’t help feeling that we’ve we’ve sacrificed something along the way that will never return.

    Just watching Galatasaray v Chelsea. I wouldn’t love to do an away trip to Istanbul just to experience the atmosphere. Looks truly incredible.

  11. Monica Bulker3 says:

    So all the away teams are winning except us ! Moyes ! Breaking records since 2013 !

    “Just watching Galatasaray v Chelsea. I wouldn’t love to do an away trip to Istanbul just to experience the atmosphere. Looks truly incredible.”

    Just nice to watch a properly managed side…

  13. adam leszczak says:

    If Moyes is retained for next season, if he has any sense AT ALL and he want to salvage his image he will get rid of his utterly useless 4 amigos and will surround himself with tactical geniuses, and humbly acknowledge he needs help.
