- Man U (and Evertonians)….
….this Fellaini bloke, what is the point? Wanders round. Fouls a lot and seems to slow any forward momentum immediately. Constant lay offs tonight just held MU up tonight, and in effect he just “took up space” all night. Oh, and then a silly sending off.
Don’t get it?Posted 4 years ago
In addition to him getting in the way, I was puzzled by how many times players ran after the ball instead of running into space. Just seem to crowd each other out. Is there a danger that they as trying to catch up with Barca passing stats instead of just playing football?Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
Great player, although it’s true similar questions were asked when he first joined Everton. Part of it is he has a languid demeanour, which belies a tremendous work-rate and confuses the Teds. Check out Fellaini’s stats over a season to see if he ‘wanders around and slows forward momentum’ during a game. It is to laugh. He does dish out the fouls, that cannot be argued with.Posted 4 years ago
He’s also not the easiest guy to slot into a system – he’s too skilled to just sit in front of the back 4 and destroy stuff, and while he puts a big shift in he’s not fast enough to be up and down all game.
Like the entire midfield [ Carrick aside] he is just not good enough.
He is slow and ponderous when Man u should play with pace and flair – we have not got the players to do this though so not just his fault.
Its really poor to see Young [ he seems the worst though most teams/players do it] go down with the lightest touch and it was never a penalty in a million yearsPosted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
Youngs inability to stay on his feet when anyone comes within 3ft of him is an embarrassment. He’s like a smaller Drogba. Which I suppose is ok if you play for Chelsea…
There was no pace tonight. At all! If you’re going to play the Afro-haired one, then not as a holding midfielder. Let him bomb forward! It’s not like they looked threatening on the break.
* I’m hoping that me saying this now means he hits a rich stream of form and gets 3 consequitive 4 goal stunnersPosted 4 years ago

Yeh – why, though? As I said, I’d have texpected Aguero (or Tevez)
Negredo was tagged the ‘The Beast of Vallecas’ because of the working class district of Madrid in which he was brought up.Posted 4 years ago
The 6ft 1in marksman said: “It’s a nickname I like. It was given to me while I was playing in Spain, so I hope the fans can call me that over here as well.
A nickname City fans will gladly give him because his work rate is fantastic he puts him about and look mean as f*!k 🙂
Just watched the game with my neighbour, said much the same thing, not a Man U style or quality player. Buying him makes Moyes look desperate. Clueless in getting himself sent off.
Youngs is leading the dive of the season so far. I honestly thought the ref was booking him not awarding a penalty.Posted 4 years agoReluctantMember
I don’t understand why Fellaini was left on so long. After his first yellow card and then still looking as if he’d foul again, why not bring him off and negate the risk? Surely the odds were high on a second yellow at some stage? Still………….easy to be wise after the event I guess, and it wasn’t a game changer in the end.Posted 4 years ago
lots of players come to United and look rubbish in their 1st year and then next season are the best thing since sliced bread.
Thats true for many clubs fro players who come from abroad.
Its not really the case when someone has moved 25 miles down the M62
As i said you cannot really judge him as the entire midfield is pish and unsettled but he was not the kind of played Man U needed. they needed a creative midfielder who could pass and open up teams not another water carrierPosted 4 years ago

On a more positive note, old Rooney worked his little cotton socks off last night. And showed a good combination of strength and ability not gobs wound up like he used to. Very mature performance.
But I smiled when he was in the tunnel and he reached down to hold the hand of the little girl who looked v relieved that she was actually with bloke behind!!! But I find his whole mascot thing a bit stupid anyway.Posted 4 years agoRicBSubscriber
Yea but Scholes could pick out a pass and deliver it pin-point over 40yds. Hairdo just passes it sideways. Slowly.
I’ll admit I’ve questioned a few Man U players and been proved wrong. Carrick, Ole, Ronaldo (hopeless in his first season – they played better without him), Schmeichel etc all took a few seasons to settle in.
But Hairdo reminds me of Berbatov in his uncanny ability to rob an attacking move of all speed. Fergie ditched Berba for eaxctly this reason.
I think it was a panic buy. Can’t seen any other reason to buy him, never mind for almost £30m. CrazyPosted 4 years ago
