Today United travelled to Etihad (Emptihad) with a spring in their step following a few positive results. Although United lost the game 1-0 and went down to 10 men, due to Chris Smalling’s ridiculous attempt to stop Joe Hart and another blue, United put down a good shift. They made a game of it near the end at it was a pleasure to see the (old United) come back and pile on the pressure in the final moments of the game. The surprise in my opinion today was the brilliant performance of Fellani in midfield. He has taken a lot of criticism over the last year (all fully deserved by the way) but has been reignited by Van Gaal and his rotation within the United squad. This was a crap day in regards to the result, but we are showing some improvement. The January transfer market can’t come quicker and United really need to invest in a quality defender or two, but you have to ask yourself the question… Who would leave their club in January to join United in the state we are in? Yes, we have signed Di Maria and Falcao but look at the money they are receiving and the circumstances in which they came to Old Trafford. One left Monaco due to lack of competition in the boring French league and the other fell out with the Madrid President. I am sure United will bounce back and as a season ticket holder I am looking forward to Crystal Palace at home next weekend! Come on United!
