Ever since I watched today’s game against Newcastle I have been in an extremely foul mood.
Let me make it very clear that I have NEVER uttered a bad word about my team even when they were playing crappy. I considered that they were just going through a phase, but I can no longer keep quiet.
Like seriously what the hell were United thinking. They cannot defend when the opposition have possession and worse they cannot seem to find the net themselves regardless of having a bench with the names of Chicarito, Rooney and Van Persie to boot.
Manchester United have been playing like they would rather be at the mall or on Twitter rather than on the field. They just do not seem to care anymore.
I also saw one player texting today while watching the game. Like are you honestly kidding me! Gone are the days when United were a team full of confidence and passion while playing on the field.
While some may assume that David Moyes may not be the right choice which is why United are struggling, I think the bigger problem lies in the whole team rather than just the coach and it is embarrassing to see my fellow Untied fans calling for Moyes to be sacked. That is just wrong.
If Manchester United cannot play as a team and work together to win then that is no reason for the coach to be fired but it is a good reason for the players to get a kick or two up their ass.
Remember United are a team that always show up with last minute goals, that was especially the case last season which is why they went on to win the EPL trophy.
As I have stated before I think Moyes needs the rest of the season to really prove himself but the players need to really start giving a damn if they want this season to be somewhat successful.
I get that my beloved team is currently a team in transition. But changing the manager would not solve anything. It may even make things worse. One has to remember that it was David Moyes first time back at his old club Everton last week too, so it was a bitter sweet moment for him as well.
Players such as Shinji Kagawa also need to be given a chance. I have seen him play before and I think he has the potential but United are too concerned about their big stars to see it.
Last year Van Persie was scoring goals for fun but he seems to have injuries to deal with which is fine because I have never belived in a one man team to begin with.
Michael Carrick’s absence has also hurt United because they have no conductor to orchestrate the game without him.
We currently sit in 9th place, 12 points behind leaders Arsenal. I mean come one ARSENAL!!! The team that has gained a reputation as being slackers for the past 8 years with no trophies in their name. Obviously Mesut Ozil was a fantastic investment for them.
Thank God for Frank Ribery and Bayern Munich! It is nice to see at least one of the teams I support still winning since Barcelona too have shown the world they really cannot cope without the blessing from God, Lionel Messi.
Anyways I have already promised my Manchester City loving friend Muji that I will not watch anymore United games since I too fear I may suffer a heart attack at a young age.
I will however continue to hold hope that there is still something to salvage from this season. Fingers crossed of course.
