Manchester United, Attack!

The current form of Manchester United is utterly dreadful. The injuries overflowing, the manager stubborn, and the fans disappointed and furious. The situation is not good. Don’t be mistaken by this facade. They are winning and drawing a majority of their games. They have the second most no.  of clean sheets in the whole league.. But the style, the atmosphere and the spirit have all hit rock bottom, and are still going down. They are hesitant to pass forward, and ponderous in possession.  ( Not my words.) They pass backwards many more times than they pass forward. The misuse of talent in the team is also another issue. Mr. LVG is saying that he’s trying everything to this around, but nobody has any idea how much of this is true. Me being one of them. The ground has more chants of attack and of booing rather than cheering. Even though the team is still in contention for the title, the level of play is no where close one of that of a champion team…

Even so, Manchester United’s win percentage in the first season with the current manager is better that that of the manager who is considered the best manager of the club, Sir Alex Ferguson. This season  has been a carbon copy of the previous one. That is not what the fans want. ( That kind of goes without saying.)
Make no mistake..( again) . There have been moments of utter glorious goal scoring prowess. An example of that is the 3-3 draw with Newcastle United. There have been matches where MU has completed dominated the whole game but still came up short or at best, with a draw. The main goal scorer , this year has been without a doubt, Mr. Wayne Rooneyimage

.

This guy’s goal scoring started with the game against Swansea, where he flicked a ball from behind into the goal, with the assist going to Martial. And the streak ended with yesterday’s game with Southampton. Louis Van Gaal has been constantly barraged with accusations and pleas to quit as a manager for the Red Devils. But it seems the players continue to believe in him. And so does the board. ( The words of a certain manager of a certain team.)
But seriously? .. Am I the only who thinks that ManUtd is not playing badly???? I mean, its not as if they are losing every game… (Touch wood) . Yes, they did a play a really bad game against Southampton. With only one shot on target. But come on! They beat Liverpool! ( And yes, with only one shot on target, that being the goal.) The smash and grab job would have given them some kind of confidence, Ja? But as Van Gaal said, it is not the case.
Many of the fans want him to step down and let Mourinho or someone else take control of the reigns.

Then there’s the case of the stubbornness. Many say Van Gaal is stubborn. But it Manchester United who have gone through two managers without much difference. So maybe it might be time to ask, who is the who’s stubborn.

Side note:- There might be few mistakes in the time words such as yesterday or tomorrow as it took me a few days to write this. Apologies.
