Like Forlan? If Hernandez was subject to a "United curse", then I doubt he'd have scored either.

It was just one of those days. Play it again next week and we'd win comfortably.

This is why we are 8th & 8 points behind the leaders after a couple of months with only one goal in the premiership in the last month. Some of you need to look in the bloody mirror.

I'm the only one talking any sense, yet a few of you gang up with ******** & think that makes it right. Look at the bloody facts.

Instead ot trading insults perhaps all of you could come up with what you think is wrong, because something is wrong.

The problem is that every time a result doesn't go our way, you roll out the Hernandez banners!

Stuck record.

MICON loves an echo chamber. Whether it be one of his own making or selective interpretation of posts.
Lets face it, the job that Mourinho goes deeper than just putting bodies in shirts and putting them on the pitch. He's had money and a full pre-season, and the results aren't yet showing for the level of investment. However, its been 3 months since the start of the season, they're not in the bottom half, and there's plenty of games left.

Thing is, SAF never fancied Chicharito enough to play him regularly, which speaks volumes for me.

There's a lot more wrong than not having Hernandez. Under Fergie, we usually had at the best defence or best midfield or best attack. Whilst we have some very good players, the mix is not quite right to have the right mix. Some of that is due having so many managers and so many new players arrive over last 4 years. We do need some stability, and let players settle and grow.

Agreed.

I'd probably be more worried if yesterday we'd created one chance and scored, winning 1-0 than what actually happened.

You sometimes have days like that. The goals will come.

That's not to say that I'm not disappointed.

Two minutes in and we're 1 down with a Rooney-esque overhead kick from distance.

Dick. And Avocaat. Two things I really hate.

Oh well, back to form. 2 minutes & a lucky but well taken goal by Fenerbahçe leaves us 1.0 behind.

It can't get any worse, can it?...can it? 2-0 down. We are so poor & Fenerbahçe are hardly great.

United are looking mid-table at best in their current form...could be years before we ever win the title again!

...should have been 3-0 there...just embarrassing!!!

It is very average, isn't it?

Someone in the press described us as 'old fashioned' this last week in the press and tonight I'd agree. I don't even know where to start when talking about fixing it: that XI should just be doing better than they are.

Joking aside the difference in attacking football tonight is night and day, they are breaking fast with quick direct passing, straight around our players and into the box.

Whereas we **** around and around the final third until we lose it or over hit a cross.

This is a disgrace. Too many players all want to play no 10. Rooney means we are playing with 10 men again. There is such a lack of leadership on the pitch, we haven't come close to replacing the likes of Vida, Rio, Evra, Nevile, Giggs and Scholes. These players are just gutless and pathetic, bar Herrera.

The only player previously free from criticism, De Gea, was lacking for both goals tonight... ...guess we have a totally ***** team now!

...could someone take Rooney out the back and shoot him, at least we'd get a bit of money for sausagemeat!
