Manchester United in trouble

I am not a Man Utd supporter either and also maintained that Fergie was Man Utd. They won the league last season with an average squad bolstered by the transfer of the decade, RVP! And no matter what Moyes does, he will never ever measure up to the great Sir Alex.

He inherited League Champions and made only one purchase, Mr Fellaini, after failing to convince Fabregas to join. Looking at the squad then, attack-wise they have plenty options. Rooney, RVP, Welbeck & Chicarito are all classy internationals who always create chances and tend to outscore opponents.

And just as well, because that was what they did last year. Their defence leaked goals time and again, yet their strikers always managed to score more than they conceded. Not the best plan to win a title, but with Fergie rallying the troops, it worked out somehow. Man City’s prima donnas throwing handbags at Mancini didn’t hurt either.

But the midfield and defence! Vidic is a shell of the player he once was, but when all around are losing their heads, you tend to lose yours as well. Rio is past it. Evans & the constantly-inured Jones are forever thinking they’re midfielders – which might make sense because they have no midfielders!

Carrick is so over-rated, it’s strange. He’s a stock midfielder that I wouldn’t want to compare to anybody for fear of insulting anybody. And Anderson? Would any sane person pick Anderson ahead of Kagawa? Well, Moyes did and that worked out pretty shitty.

Okay, so to sum up my rambling, if Moyes doesn’t purchase Baines and an Agger-Skrter type to bolster his defence, he will struggle to make the top four. And he needs Fabregas, or a playmaker of note, but with the way United are playing, he’s not going to attract much interest come January.

However, it’s still Man Utd so this wannabe pundit says Moyes will purchase Baines, Ben Davies and some German midfielder come the next transfer window. So be it.
