A long time passive reader, becoming active to vent some realism.

Man Utd has fans all over the world because of one single point- Slick and Swag football! period.

We have been living in denial that we have been doss after Sir Alex retired and have splashed huge cash, yet there is hardly any signs of the swagger football.

You do a close scrutiny of the manager, the lack of passion and bunch of primmadonnas etc. But when you take a step back and ask yourselves 'why do you watch football and Manchester United? ', the answer seems redundant.

The team's 1st responsibility is to entertain, which they have failed from a long time.

This simple concept first needs to be inculcated in the team from the utmost highest authorities. I don't care how they achieve it- spend money, get sterling players, managers, tactics etc, But high time they did this- else days will come when people will stop watching the matches because they fall asleep in the couch while watching the same since it defeats the purpose of entertainment.

Always remember, the first testament for any sports is to provide the entertainment- which Man Utd is really lacking from last 5 years.

PS: This is not a knockback of yesterday's defeat, just has been feeling the same from a long time.

Very true post. since many years. exictment is gone. Earlier I couldn't bare a draw, now I digest even a defeat. earlier I don't miss watching a match and now if I miss it by any chance I don't feel a big loss. earlier if there is defeat my temper is too bad to kick anyone. now I feel all normal.

So ironically. Moyes, LVG and Now Jose has done a good job for fans mental development.

But I guess we were batter spoilt.

Here in asia i have stopped watching matches after midnight. watching our games have become a chore. Going to pubs and sports bars has also stopped, lucky we have a huge fanbase.

Yes the good Football helped get the fans but I think winnings things is what ultimately got the fans in. The most successful teams are the ones that people in other countries follow, this is why Liverpool have a lot of fans from the 80s and United from the 90s, the good Football was a bonus that we became spoilt with.

I didn’t think the game yesterday was particularly boring, we had the chances, there were 23 shots in the game, we had one cleared off the line and a couple of great saves from the keeper. If Sanchez puts the chance away (which he should have done) and we win nobody is moaning about it being boring in my opinion.

Sanchez is an absolute pleasure to watch, some of his skill and ball control is spectacular, as it stands the results haven’t quite improved with him in the team but I have no doubt they will.

Did I complain about the Newcastle game in particular?
When did I complain or stand on the slating bandwagon because our team lost yesterday?

As you mentioned- yesterday's wasn't "particularly" boring- shows the distance we have fallen from the tree.

The only point which I want to emphasize is united is winning ugly most of the times without any attacking slick football.

I am a die hard UTD fan, but there is just no sense of any excitement anymore.

About the game: you mention Martial and Sanchez converting their chances and the two goal line clearences-

Don't you agree it was all defense and then long ball and then some individual skill of Lukaku or Sanchez to get the ball to test the opposition goal? This has been the case for half of our matches, Mind you- we do win, but then hardly handful of them which we really enjoyed, while you watch games of City, Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal (to some extent) and enjoy the matches every single time whatever is the result.

We I feel are lacking purpose and are senseless about what we want to be with our future model.

If you're fine with the manner of football United is playing, then absolutely no point of mine continuing this banter.

The post of mumbaianc shows the true picture for many of the fans all over the world
