If there are players who dont want to be here and give there all playing for that f.u.c.k.i.n.g badge then let em go, just let em go. To be a United player you need heart, you need desire and you need ability and i didnt see any of those traits tonight tbh. For the record, we didnt look anything like champions.
There's a player there, goes by the name of Ryan Giggs, who's an absolute living legend and he's being put through the embarrassment of having to play in central midfield at the age of 38 because those f.u.c.k.i.n.g leeches wont cough up and buy the world class player that is NEEDED to replace him. Giggs really struggled tonight and it's just unbelievably sad that we are still relying on this once truly amazing footballer for creativity. Ryan Giggs should have been replaced 3 or 4 years ago with another world class player, he, more than anyone, doesnt deserve the embarrassment of watching average players run rings around him....Its even worse because the players running rings around him wouldnt have laced his boots all them years ago.
But lets face it, he's playing because this midfield we have that Fergie refuses to address is incredibly poor. 3 or 4 years ago it should have been a case of "thanks Ryan, thanks for the brilliant memories and enjoy your retirement, you deserve it" but no its "will you stay for another year, we need you, we've no money to replace you and your really all we've got in midfield". Its pathetic.
Defensively i understand Vidic is a massive loss for us, he's an absolute colossus of a player for United but his return wouldnt fix what needs fixing. United need a proper captain for starters, a Roy Keane or a Bryan Robson, someone who will tell the other players in no uncertain terms if they arent pulling their weight. I mean c'mon, Patrice Evra captain? Thats a joke in itself. I love this club with all my heart and soul but i'm really passionate about this. Some of the players have stopped performing and havent been for a long time. Too many players are being carried and too many are looking around waiting for someone else to do something, hence why we need a leader of men.
What United needs is an injection of quality, players with flair and aggression. Not players for the future, they need quality and experience right now. Trouble is those type of players cost money and as we all know that goes against our current transfer policy, a policy which translated means we havent got a pot to p1ss in.
Credit to Sir Alex that United are only 3 points behind City, that in itself is a minor miracle at this point.
jim burns:Have to disagree with you there,I live in ireland and im in old trafford every other week,It hurts to see a club like united being tore apart,and when you see nothing done about thats why the supporters are on giving out,there is no doubt we need some new players,why wont the glazers do something about it,since they bought the club we have brought them riches beyond there wildest dreams,the team we had got us into the champion league year after year making them millions,for a club like united,the money manchester united pulls in each year compaired to the investment is a disgrace.We should be buying at least one worldclass player each season.We make more money than real and barca.Take Take thats all that they have done.Im getting worried that our club could be tore apart by the consistant dept and no invesment,its our club to,we are the ones paying the money to see united we are the ones buying everything united,paying for membership paying to watch mutv,without the fans a club is nothing so I think we have a right to give our side when we see something is not right.
Kieran Reilly:You 'supporters' that get angry and question the loyalty of fans that are disgusted with the current performance of the team think you are true supporters but it is YOU who are the disgrace.
This team is awful, our play is terrible. We don't have that killer instinct and we need to improve. Ive been a supporter for over 20 years, and this is the worst group of players Ive seen.
You who claim to support the team and don't care about what's happening are rose tinted fans who don't believe that Sir Alex can make a mistake.
You would rather we continue playing like this. You obviously have low expectations of Manchester United. You are the one's who's loyalty should be questioned. You'd be happy if we won nothing, we're relegated and you would still call out those who demand excellence by claiming "they are not real fans."
The state of this football club hasn't been so poor in years!!!
antismith: The Man With No Name:A lot of morons on this board seem to think that if you have a go at the team you're not a real fan. Laughable, utterly laughable. Come to the pubs here in Manchester, speak to the fans that go week in and week out and they'll have a go at the team if they don't perform, people get upset and complain when they feel passionate about something they care about, its called human nature. Totally agree. When I went to the games (used to have a season ticket but haven't for a good few years) the lads I went with praised players that played well and slated the ones who were poor ( Djemba and Kleberson were usually the butt of most ire) I don't see the problem with that. I want United to win every game, even though I know that that feat is impossible, and I'm gutted for a day or so when we get beat. I don't understand fans who just say 'we lost, so what, move on it doesn't matter'. When we get stuffed by a shite geordie side it matters to me. If you found your missus with the next door neighbour would you just shut the bedroom door quietly and pretend nothing ever happened...would you ***. Sometimes United getting stuffed is worse:-) We will never stop being fans.

I wouldn't blame the manager for points lost but repeatedly find myself amazed at what he can achieve with limited resources. He has built up the club to be one of the most successful in the world and with the highest revenues from combined football + commercial activities. I think interest on the Glazer debt burden has sucked out the profits generated by SAF's lifetimes work each year denying him the opportunity to replace players on a timely basis. Really, the squad should not be looking to replace Scholes, Keane, Neville, Ronaldo, Van der Sar and prepare for the departure of Giggs + Ferdinand and provide back-up players for most positions all in a short period of time as is happening now. If since 2005, the 40 - 70 million profit per year was available for new signings, the club could have been building the best team ever assembled without making a loss. Fingers crossed the IPO goes ahead this year.
