If he doesn't make a sub he'd be accused of waiting too long though, Dare I say it Fellani looked like he was missed as they are a team of big lads. Sunderland Don't look like a bottom three team.

We are lucky to have ddg and martial. We'd be down with Chelsea without them.

Time to fall on your sword lvg.

It depends if any new manager is prepared to attempt to fix this train wreck of a season or they'd rather wait until the summer. It would seem unlikely that anyone could come in and save the season now. You might as well just let him see out the season.

I suppose the danger is he might make a modest improvement, after the 3-0 against Stoke, I thought maybe he would launch a mini-revival, maybe string a few performances together, then you'd struggle to get rid of him.

He seems to be fairly certain he ain't going anywhere though.

And again, back to Memphis. That sub was mad. The boy is a none-trick pony. What goes on in LVGs head? He's toast.
He looked pretty good mid week, yes, it was only for the U21s, but better than Nani...

We're catching you up now!

You could use Hiddink for the rest of the season.

Another Dutch pensioner? No thanks!

Okay, so LVG isn't 65 until August...

Anyone else notice just how large LVG's head is? It seems far too big for his body, & his facial expression always looks like someone has just farted. I don't think he's having much fun in the Premier League, & he's gone from, we could win it, but then one defeat later, we may not make top four. I think he'll be glad to be out of it next season, but I'll miss those little bad tempered interviews on Match Of The Day.

We are the only club in the world/ universe that would not sack this clown by now. I bet the sponsors are taking note.

Why the pity? You not like them then? They are doing a lot better than Utd are and no doubt will win the league.

Your asking a United fan if they like Arsenal shows how clueless you are!

Arsenal may win the league, but I hope they don't, it'd be fantastic for football in general in Leicester won, failing them Spurs.

Not at all clueless as your statement below says

Of course at a Utd fan I don't really like Arsenal, but then I don't like Spurs or City either -but its strange as the rivalry isint really there anymore. Arsenal didn't challenge for about a decade, and now Utd are nowhere near. Normally if Utd don't win, I couldn't give too hoots who does. However.

If Leicester won the league it would be one of the greatest achievements in any sport, ever - and that's why I will be cheering them on, not because I don't like Arsenal but because I can't imagine that with all the money and resources top clubs have these days that we will ever see a club go from near relegation to title winners (if they do it) again.

This isint Blackburn who were a small club and just bought the title - this is hollywood movie type stuff.

Yes it would be good if Leicester won it but I think the pressure will get to them nearer the end as they have never encountered this before being so close.

Because as you are Utd fan you chose two teams near Arsenal in the League table rather than any others

what? that makes no sense and doesn't answer the question.

I mentioned the top two teams in the league. Far faster than listing all the teams I'd rather win than Arsenal!

Man Utd have the chance of winning the FA Cup (along with a few other teams) this season and that is the cup of winning F All

What? who are you responding to now?

United have a chance at the (illustrious) Europa League, as well as the cup that has kept Arsenal happy for the last two seasons...

I'd have thought Europa League was your best chance of CL football (does it still work out as at the expense of someone further up?)

I'd have thought as United fans, you'd not want anyone else breaking into your top 4 club, when you're demanding automatic entry into the CL or whatever the big euro clubs are after now, surely other teams doing well makes your arguments seem a little daft.

Neither are likely for Utd.
