    If we are keeping Felliani (and I take swig from my hip flask as I write that) then someone needs to tell him his not allowed to use his feet in either penalty area. Use your head fine. But do not attempt to kick that ball! His more likely to give away a pen or miss like that last night then do anything positive. Shocking last night yet again.

    I've seen a clip of his miss last night.

    Why did he take it first time? He had so much time to control it (then take a 2nd touch to actually control it haha) then get a shot away.

    He was impressive in the second half.

    We've resorted to kicking the ball in off him. Haha

    He's been very good in his three cameo appearances.

    Still don't get all the hate for Fellaini, he's not a main starter and rightly so because we have better players ahead of him but as an option off the bench? He is a player than can affect games, sometimes he does stupid things but I'm happy we have him as a squad option.

    My issue with him is a just don't enjoy watching him play he's not a very good footballer, compare his ability on the ball to Pogba or Matic or Yaya all big guys but they could play Fellaini is just clumsy.

    I accept that he can be useful and effective I just don't enjoy watching him play.

    Can't knock his attitude it's spot on he does what he's told I just feel a club like Utd should aspire to better and it was a big mistake buying him.

    Hopefully we only see him as a sub this season as he can be effective at coming on to close out games like the ones we've had but when we are ahead and on the ropes he's not a guy to send on as he gives away to many fouls.

    I tell you what...

    I'm still not a huge fan of Fellaini and I never will be. But I can't dispute that he comes in and does a job for Jose and the team.

    Every time he comes in since Jose has taken over he's been played in a role that gets the best out of him. And he's a really good important member of the squad to have especially in the CL. Yes OK he limits our style but that size will be a real asset in Europe because teams just can't deal with him.

    I think the quality of the opposition has to be considered but last night he was excellant playing in a slightly deeper role than we normally use him his passing was quicker than usual and it seemed like he had more confidence in it to play slightly longer passes when needed and try to break through the lines plus having Matic meant he was free to get forward which got him his goal.

    Against better sides he probably would be found out as in Europe players will just win fouls off him and press him better in possesion but last night he was excellant I'd say man of the match and I'm not a fan of his.

    In terms of the midfield options it seems obvious that he's moved ahead of Herrera as the 3rd choice midfield option and it's on merit.
