Hi Guys

So we've got Fellaini for another 2 years with an option of a third. Personally I'm not a fan of his and in my opinion he is very one dimensional. My only hope is that we sell him and get a transfer fee for him but I think I'm clutching at straws.

Strange decision for me, but not surprising given everything I would do the club seem to do the opposite. He has contributed at times, but this is not the message the club should be sending.

I understand why some people see the positives as the 'X factor' he can bring in certain situations, but i'd prefer alternative routes and too much is made of that X factor! We all know that when he plays he brings very little to the table unless we play direct. Yes he is committed, but so what, 99% of players for Utd would be committed if they believed they were punching above their weight being at a club like ours.

He actually doesn't win a lot in the air as CB's are similar size or have a better leap, not much actually comes from his aerial threat for us. He is a liability giving away possession, he slows the game down when in midfield, playing the obvious pass and often failing with that. he is very slow and often resorts to hacking down an opponent when they get the better of him, which is too often - he needs a smaller pitch to be effective. Then aerially it's a toss of a coin whether they opposition pick up a freekick or not.

I don't dislike Fellaini, but he is not good enough to be in a Man Utd squad there are literally a hundred midfielders I'd rather have taking up a position in the team. He may nick a goal now and again, but at what overall cost?

There’s always the risk of a massive asteroid might hit the earth, and if lands in Manchester we’ll be glad that Fellaini is here to chest it down safely.

I have nothing against Fellaini, he seems a nice bloke and apparently he is a popular character in the dressing room, but when we bought him my mind went back in time to when Liverpool signed David Speedie. I’m not comparing the 2 players, just the message it sent out. Fellaini is not, and never will be a United player, he was a last minute desperation signing. For me it’s a bit like the Arnautovic rumours: if true then we continue to fall.

Having said that he keeps getting picked. Moyes signed him, LVG played him, and Jose wants to keep him, so hey what do I know? Even if I know nothing, I know he is not a United player.

Moyes signed him, got sacked. LvG played him got sacked.

Good posts ajh and beast.
Agree with all of that ajh. The manager his his reasons i just don't agree with them.

29 Jun 2018 23:15:06
Moyes, LVG and Jose all play him. Martinez plays him for Belgium. but what do they know.

29 Jun 2018 23:46:40
Agreed Beast and Tony. I have never liked him or his way of playing.

Eric - I know they know how to take a quality squad and make it look bang average.
