5th Defeat Of The Season

I think the Fulham game was the worst I have seen us play in many years. However, I guess it was just inventible that it was going to happen sooner rather than later. We’ve ridden our luck on many occasions this season and we’ve hardly struck any form at all.

Sure, the decimated backline was definitely a big factor for our poor run of results but that should sort itself out once we have everyone back. Having said that, I do feel that both Vida and Rio seems to have lost some edge this season and I’m hoping that it’s because of the lingering injuries.

Our main problem lies way upfront.

Ronnie’s departure only served to expose what was there for all to see the last few years, which is the fact that we need a proven goal scorer that we’ve been missing since the departure of RVN.

Rooney and Berba are great playing behind a main man and maybe Lil Mickey could have had been the answer but he seems to have lost his main weapon, that extra yard.

Can sir coax Ole back out from retirement?

Bye bye Sparky

Sparky had always been my favourite player of his era, eclipsing even the likes of King Eric. His lion hearted display always made me feel he gave a fuck about the club and his goals for us had always been memorable. If you thought Scholes could volley, you’ve never seen Hughes in action.

When he stepped into management, I only wished him all the best and when he was managing Blackburn, I always kept an eye on their results. Even after it was announced that he was going to manage Citeh, I still had no ill feelings towards him although I secretly knew he had just crossed himself from the list of future United managers.

But then things started to change. Sparky became more and more of an arse. He took whinging to new levels. He defended indefensible players and their indefensible actions with the most feeble excuses. And he thought that the damn Tevez poster was funny.

But most important of all, he also showed that 1) he cannot buy wisely even with all the money in the world 2) he cannot manage big egos 3) he’s tactically inept.

And he paid the price for it.

As for me, I am just glad that Citeh paid to find that out.
