Oh Manchester United! Where do I begin? Firstly I think I will clarify that it is no longer funny to laugh at Manchester United.
Yes as a Gunner I would like to see us beat the Red Devils to any silverware on display, but at the rate the League Champions are going, they are taking the fun away from it.
I don’t wish death on my worst enemy and in the same light; United should continue to be a challenger for the title but just fall short of winning silverware.
They currently aren’t playing like a top team or even like defending champions. Laughing at them now would be like laughing at Norwich City for being 15th. Come on Man United! I don’t believe the entire problem is David Moyes.
Moyes was a performing manager at Everton, there’s no doubt about that. And very few Red Devils objected when he was hand-picked by Sir Alex Ferguson.
I actually believe Sir Alex is still running things behind the scenes which means the great man himself needs to take some of the blame on United’s current performance.
Firstly Man United need players. When you look at their squad and see Man City or Chelsea squads, you realise that Man United are average; with a few exceptional talents.
So why is it that fans expect miracles when the team is doing the best it can.
Just because Sir Alex made average players deliver for him. I actually blame some of those average players for not delivering for Moyes.
When you play strictly for one manager and not for the other, do you realise that you’re limiting your own success as well?
Arsenal’s current squad isn’t so much better than Man United’s, but somehow the Gunners are playing with more commitment! They have a drive to succeed and I’m sure after each victory they can’t believe what they themselves have managed to achieve.
The great skill is there in nearly every premier league side, but it needs to translate into an overall great team performance and not every team manages to do that. I think the managers get way too much blame even when players choose not to work hard.
Whatever is going on at Old Trafford needs to end because it’s boring me! I want Manchester United back - somewhat! I want Manchester United to only lose matches to big sides and once in a while draw with small sides so that we at Arsenal still finish ahead of them.
I don’t want a Man United that loses to West Brom at Old Trafford and Sunderland in the FA Cup! That’s a boring United!
In fact I’m insulted that United have been losing to so many small teams and then decides to beat Arsenal!
Beating Arsenal alone won’t remove you from seventh position guys!
My ideal United should lose away games to Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool; and only lose at Old Trafford to Arsenal.
My ideal United should draw with Everton and Spurs and beat the little teams. That’s my ideal United! I guess I’ve annoyed a hound of Red Devils today but that’s normal isn’t it?
