The great...

It's been 3/4 into the season now and our top scorer in the league is at 10 goals. Quite poor from our strikers.
Is it true we only have 2 away wins this season?
No mate, its not much of an improvement but we've managed to win 3 away games.

We won away at Southampton, Arsenal and QPR.

Our away form has been very rocky this season, 4 out of 5 of our league losses have been away and we've drawn in 7 away games too, inexcusable really.

We went from mid-table home form along with title winning away form last season to title winning home form and mid-table away form this season... lol
3 away at this point of the season is still shocking.

We should have picked up points against the likes of leicester, burnley, sunderland, stoke , west brom etc..

With a few more away wins we would have been in the title race but top 3 is our realistic target this season.
Simple solution.

We re-hire Moyes for away games, let LvG coach at OT.
+14
@joeymac brilliant idea moyes was a specialist in away wins.
why cant we just play on the counter away from home? that's all mo yes did, he wasn't doing anything fancy. we try and dominate on the road, concede possession in bad areas and give up cheap goals.
Moyes's first 13 Home games: DWLLDWWLLWLWW (6W2D4L) 20pts

Moyes's first 13 Away games: WLLWWDDWWWLLD (6W3D4L) 20pts

LVG's first 13 Home games: LWWWDWWWWWLWW (10W1D2L) 31pts

LVG's first 13 Away games: DDLDLWWDDDWDL (3W7D3L) 16pts


- If we use Moyes' away form, we should be 51pts still behind City...

- If we use Moyes' home form, we are 36pts, which is behind Stoke City at 10th LOL

- Because Moyes' first 13 home/away games are identical, here's the difference for the entire season:

Home: DWLLDWWLLWLWWDLLWLW (8W3D8L) 27pts

Away: WLLWWDDWWWLLDWWWWLD (10W4D5L) 34pts
Hiring Moyes was probably the worst decision in this club's recent history
+6
^come on mate.how much worse can moyes do compared to lvg?the only thing lvg did better than moyes so far is the league position.
-lose 4-0 to mk f*****g don
-concede 5 goals against relegation battle leicester(and lose)
-rooney as dmf when the other striker sucks
-di maria as forward
-3-5-2
-a dmf(blind\carrick) as cb when there're other option
-start fellaini and bench herrera and mata then said we need another creative mf

I bet lvg gonna do worse if he was the manager last season lol
+8
lvg is way better manager than moyes ever was, is, and ever will be
+4
That's the "only" thing? Really?

If LvG was the manager last season, we probably wouldn't be out of Europe, we probably wouldn't have spent 30 million on both Fellaini and Mata, and we probably would have transitioned more smoothly into a needed rebuilding phase, one instead that we floundered into due to Moyes' deer-in-the-headlights mentality.

As much as I like him, Moyes set us back and we're still making up for it.
+4
@Joey n @sayroxyou're stating a statement without theory(not even fact).i can do that too you know

(Coz too many slowpoke and the latest-mufc1990)
There you go

Oh btw,fellaini is lvg most loved player right now.
+2
Guardian of Moyes. Moyes was all downhill, LVG is at least going flat than downhill.

At least Joey's comment make more sense than your s**t lol.
+3
@Lutheaven - wait! are you telling me moyes is the reason we got the adidas sponsorship? you must be joking dude.
Duhh,those are sarcasm.
Slowpoke
+1
Saying Moyes is better or as good as LvG is like saying Cleverley > Pogba.
That's the way i sees it
+5
^This.

**

"Hiring Moyes was probably the worst decision in this club's recent history"

That and letting Pogba go. Oh, and paying 29m (?) for Felli. But I suppose if Moyes never happened, then that transfer never would have either.

In truth, SAF was horribly short-sighted in his later years. Appointing Moyes was, retrospectively speaking, one of his worst decisions. But it is more than that. People don't like to hear it, because he's a legend - but the squad is in its sorry state partly because he allowed for the rot to begin several years ago. He made many "short term" additions or choices in effort to capture final glory. Now we have to undergo a massive, deep rebuild which will take time. In terms of the selection of top class managers on the list, LVG is probably one of the best available at this time. He knows how to build successful sides (if anyone disagrees, then just look at his track record). One or two more transfer windows, and hopefully things will start to take shape again. On top of world class youngsters for the here and now, we need to bulk up the academy for the future. We've already seen signs of this - long may it continue.
+1
touché
No cheshire.its like saying rooney>falcao.if u judge base on history,its ridiculous.but if judge base on present performace,its true
+2
We don't need lvg and Moyes' history to tell that lvg is doing better.
that's it.i'm ending this pointless argument now considering you guys not gonna admit you're wrong aren;t ya.and i've never seen a smart counter argument so far.all i see is "lvg>moyes.simple"lol

have a great dayy.
+2
vice versa
"If lvg was the manager here last season,we would have been relegated."
lol
Mate, go take a nap. Honestly.
+5
^^again,those are sarcasm duhh
again slowpoke
+2
Appointing Moyes was arguably the worst decision in the clubs entire history let alone recent history lol, when you factor in what it cost us in a lack of CL qualification and some questionable transfers it was god awful.

It was a dreadful decision that was always going to end in tears, Moyes is and always will be a nearly man, LVG might be a marmite character but he will find a way to get silverware in the cabinet even if he ends up skewered on his own ego in the process.

@Lutheaven

Compare the silverware and the calibre of the clubs both managers have managed and you'll see the gulf in pedigree.

You refuse to see a convincing argument for LVG > Moyes because you have an agenda that your going to push no matter what.

Your the one lacking a smart argument here, not the rest of the forum, "no Adidas deal without Moyes", "Rooney and De Gea would have left", "we would have been relegated under LVG"... Really.
+2
We do know that LVG has at least experience to work with big clubs, so yes its easy math in term of: "what member we need to pick from 2" for HR, if we had one for position of a manager.

Also we dont really know how LVG would do with pressure to be chosen by SAF as his successor that Moyes had, thus in defense of Lutheaven I would say, lets not get ahead of ourself in terms of "FOR SURE LVG would do better than Moyes in first year after SAF retirement": we will never find this out to be honest.

BUT I wonder though about other important point until this moment... how SAF was selecting successor and from what perspective he looked at Moyes in order to pick him?

It's just... somebody like SAF, is just hard to believe he was only looking on one person from all candidates, thus I know one thing for sure:

- Mou (which I personally really wanted as our manager) was shocked to find out he was not the one to be picked, as they both STILL respect each other, and are very-very good friends and best rivals. In fact in Real Madrid match Mou stated that SAF told him first that he is retiring. No body else had a clue.
- Guardiola (which also a great candidate) actually a had a dinner with him in one of the restarants, and that somehow strangely failed, because apparently (as per Guardiola) he could not "for 100% sure understand what SAF meant and does SAF asks him to be a new manager".
- Also OK if 2 top picks fail, what are other options? There are still many. Why LVG was not even picked as one of candidates is also strange. Maybe SAF knew playing too defensive wont work for EPL after all.

>>> Remember we are talking here about SAF, person who knows United from top to bottom and his decisions are rare to be wrong, but also it is just hard to believe Moyes was only option if top 2 fail. He had also so much time to consider...
@ Luth

Yes, LvG loves Fellaini because he has made a difference in games.

Figure that, the player Moyes brought in, the player Moyes was familiar with, is better under LvG. Miles better. That isn't theory, that's just how it is.

As mentioned by various users, you're ignoring pedigree.
Wow I actually read all that
An opinion from an outsider:

A club of Man Utd's stature require a manager to meet at least one of these requirements:

1) Proven track record/exprience (eg Carlo)
2) Impressive recent success (eg Villas Boas)
3) Personality, reputation (Klopp)
4) Tactical Brilliance (Pep?)
5) Historical Connection to the club (Giggs,Simeone)

Moyes is a good manager but sadly imo he doesn't meet any of these requirements. LvG so far has been unconvincing but he has enough pedigree that most supporters of the club trust him to atleast stabilize a sinking ship. Sometimes, all you need is confidence in our manager.
Just saw some trivial stats on PLTV that Arsenal holds the longest record of retaining the first spot for 128 days, but end up finishing 4th that season. Meanwhile we hold the shortest record of retaining first spot to win the title.
+1
What season was it that we held the first spot for the least amount of time yet ended up winning the league?

Was it the season when Keegan had a meltdown and we came back from like 15 points behind at Christmas to win the league haha.
Surely it was 2002-03.

That season, we had out first lead in that table on April 12, beating Arsenal by 5 points at the end of the campaign.
+1
Arsenal always alphabetically 1st before the season start.

^ "The club however did not change its name to Arsenal, but to "The Arsenal". The final name change came in 1925 when following Herbert Chapman's suggestion the club dropped the definite article, "in order to be top of the alphabet even if we are not top of the league."

from good to bad to ugly.. rough week for di maria

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11667/9740563/manchester-united-winger-di-maria-was-too-ugly-for-real-madrid

even his looks are being questioned. bit harsh.

to clarify, i think this is an ex barcelona coach talking about why madrid sold ADM.
This is f*****g sickening.

This guy was arguably their player of the season last year and was MOTM in some of their biggest games including the CL final which they won, he was also rightly named in the world 11 last season.

Talk about kicking a man while he is down, irrespective of how you feel about Di Marias struggles (atm) this is just totally lacking in class, I'd expect as much from the virus though, horrible club.
+1
Carles Rexach clearly dosent know football dosent have to do with looks, its shitty who ever wrote that article
"Former Barcelona coach Carles Rexach claims Real Madrid sold Angel Di Maria to Manchester United because he was 'too ugly' to play for them."

But lets blame Perez for it...
+3
i find it disgusting how you can slag a player off who played for you and played well in that manner. its stupid logic and equally childish as f**k. just ignore the s**t coming out of his mouth because its just so unsportsmanlike and ridiculous. when i first read that in a article i honestly thought it was a joke.
di maria is overrated anyways, became overrated once we signed him... lol
+3
This guy played for Barca, coached them and now is their assistant director...And he said this to some catalan media - one should know what his motives are!
+4
people need to lay off their own players,like seriously..everyone is human..tell me for those that play footy themselves,after getting injured has found it difficult to get back into the game. or lets just ask,has anyone NOT gone a week or month without scoring goals or finding their form.
we all knew ADM wasn't a physical player,so take not of the leagues he's played in prior to EPL,and also the players that surrounded him before coming here..not saying MU has s**t players,but compare Madrid to MU midfield and striker options..ADM had modric,bale,ronaldo,benzema,isco,alonso..if you actually watch our games adm is always a step ahead of our players,they pretty much NEVER play the 1-2 which he wants us to play but we end up passing it back and left to right. he makes a run expecting a chip or cross over to him,but we don't play it because our players are TOO SCARED to play those balls. watch the newcastle game this week and you'll know what im saying
+1
I really don't think Madrid sold him because of Di maria's look but its a fact that he was never a fit for Uncle Perez's galactico policy and other certain thing is that he was not treated well by the club management ( not by fans though , they loved him ) , that letter which he got prior to the final comes to mind ,

Proceed from Di maria sale was used to fund the move for James , who was the flavor of the month after WC and was always more marketable option then di maria , which made it easier for uncle perez to have James over di maria , TBF James was bought because of marketing reason but so far he have proved to be an incredible on football pitch too .
he's an atomic powered giraffe!
+1
Even though the claims are biased, I always think Real choose players by their face. Why they didn't sign Eto'o, Drogba, Ronaldinho, Ribery, Suarez when they were slaughtering teams during their peak, they could have easily signed them. Its their look. Looking back at their legends, all have good looking faces Figo, Raul, Zidane, Casillas, Beckham and now Ronaldo, Kroos, James. Faces so good you want a nude poster in your room.

The next one moving on will be Bale and Modric, all coming to United
+4
I don't give two damns how a player looks like, aslong as they have special football talent thats all what matters.

Some footballers may be appealing to the eye but if football fans take that into account instead of their talent they like those girls who only watch football to admire footballer looks.
+1
He put it in a very blunt way, but it can't be a coincidence Pérez loves buying stars who are good-looking too. Look at the iconic players/transfers of the Pérez galacticos now and back then: they're all models aside from footballers.

I don't condemn it though, he loves making Real Madrid into something that's larger than life: some of the most gifted players who are very good-looking too. It's a brand, simple as that.
lol i guess that means pogba and reus are safe
I''m surprised Pepe's contract hasn't been ripped up yet :O
+1
@SIF - you don't think Reus is good looking? He perfectly fits the Galactico army of high-elves. I am quite positive he will be lapped up by Real next.
modric kinda looks f'ed up too

@tomi

nah i think he looks maybe average at best, kinda looks like a lizard to me though

the only dortmund player that has movie star looks is hummels. he looks just like orlando bloom (an actual movie star):

if madrid are about looks,then i don't know why modric is at madrid,he looks like and Orc from Lord of the Rings.

@Cjay Exactly!! Like the recent Asian Cup final, the girls around me were suddenly supporting South Korea because of the recent Korea hype even though they never watch football. They were rooting for Ki Sung Yeung even though Heung Min Son is their best player. Listening to them bad mouthing Australia for playing better football made me laugh.
+1
I wish we could pass the ball with as much confidence as... Spurs! LOL that's it, I've said it!
Jokes aside I was well impressed with their football vs Chelsea and I don't give em long before they're at the top - if they don't sack their current manager that is (...)
No fear football and quite inspired too! That's what we're sorely missing IMHO. We're so frigging predictable and scared it's pathetic. I wish LVG reinstated confidence before working on intricate formations.
IMO solid defense is what helps build teams confidence to pass the ball with fluidity....there are lot of teams in Europe who play attractive football, but only the ones with a solid defense will manage to stay on top for long runs and win trophies.

United played some expansive football and won a lot of trophies under SAF. Because there was always a wall (Rio, Vidic, Evra , Gary & VDV) to shield the team....Liverpool would have won the league last season if only they had a solid defense.
@Bazinga, not only defense, but the midfield and discipline. Jose has done wonders in that respect. While people were singing about City's attacking prowess, Mou was doing his work in the background last year, setting a foundation for the current year. That is basically the single biggest reason most people think Chelsea is a CL candidate inspite of not having the most enterprising stars or glittering players.

Ancelotti said: “People should think twice before saying that James can fill Di María’s boots because they’re very different players. Di María could take matches by storm with his energy, but he also used to lose control sometimes, misplacing important passes.”

He has played in a very small space and he is a dribbler. But sometimes you cannot dribble, you have to make it a pass game and Di María is not a player who wants to give a pass every time he gets the ball Therefore he lost the ball a lot of times and that was not good for the balance of the team.”
+2
Waiting to hear what Ancelotti has to say about Di Maria's set pieces..
^ "Di Maria could execute set pieces, but he also couldn't execute set pieces sometimes, sending the ball back to Madrid."

looks like we did try for marquinos:

"...if Manchester United has a champions league spot" according to logic.

In other news "LVG will stay in United even if he fails to get a champions league spot just because he has a better resume then Moyes. As well as he said that United will need 3 years to be rebuild, and Moyes forgot to say that important part."
