I think he has received harsh criticism, but fans are starting to or have already turned against him and I'm starting to wonder whether he has the qualities to turn it around. I can accept he's a good squad player but others may not be as charitable.
Frustrating. Didn't understand why he and Giggs were starting, both favour to play on left, Nani and Valencia favour the right. Giggs on the right made no sense at all. Both Young and Valencia are in a similar situation in my opinion, good defensive choices on the wings but offer very little going forward which is the main thing you want from wingers, especially when we rely on wingers to create. We only really started creating and looking threatening when Nani and Hernandez came on. Only 3 games into the season so plenty of time for him and our other wingers to turn things around but it would seem at this stage that not much has changed from last season. Hopefully Nani can stay fit and get into top form. Also get Kagawa fit and play him on the left cutting inside.
Just spoke to "the old king" on holiday in Teneriffe. He watched the game on tv and thought it was a definite Yellow card as he left his foot dangling on purpose, a la Pires. He also though there were a couple of other decent shouts for pens.
He has got pelters on Twitter and Sunday Supplement. He deserved his yellow card and he needs to be stopped. The only thing that sits uneasy with me is you would think United players are the only ones that do it. There are a hell of a lot of players out there doing it that never get a mention. Stan Collymore needs to start talking about Gerrard, Sturridge,Hazard,Toure and many many more.
dreadful game. But what can he do. If the manager picks him he has to play, it is not his fault he is not good enough. We had flare players on the bench and in the stands. He is a safety first manager, for me getting it badly wrong.
After yesterday, i'm of the belief that we should go 3 in midfield and play more attack minded players further forward. The only reason you could justify Young starting yesterday was his defensive work and he was poor on a couple of occasions in that aspect. Our midfielders seem to be more suited to playing a 3 man midfield and I think Kagawa or Nani would prefer it too as the additional forward alongside Rooney and van Persie.
