I'm glad the manager has learnt he is managing Man Utd, not some underdog. Wait, no he picks Fellaini to combat the aerial threat of Burnley!

What about taking the game to Burnley and making them adapt to us?

He may score and be immense today, but frankly this type of negative, defensive first tactic sums up why he is not right for the club. What a joke, and no wonder the board didn't back him still further than they already have - dropping our big money signing for a guy that couldn't get a deal after hawking himself around the minnows of Europe.

One consolation if we do draw/ lose today will be we are rid of the 'negative one'.

Beast mate i'm sure you get the irony of you calling Anybody else 'the negative one'😂😂.

02 Sep 2018 17:35:54
Does being negative about negative football make you positive?

02 Sep 2018 17:41:35
How did it work out anyway beast in the end? 😂.

02 Sep 2018 17:51:03
He did well, but if we had taken the game to them rather than playing with three plodders in midfield it could and should have been 5 or 6-0 today. Goal difference is important, we know better than anybody.

Many a time this negative tactic hasn't worked, but we did enough today.

02 Sep 2018 18:01:47
Yeah okay beast. Burnley have been beaten 5-0 plenty of times haven't they?

02 Sep 2018 18:04:11
Fellaini was excellent today, its could have won 7-0 if they took their chances. Burnley couldn't get out precisely because Mourinho played matic and Fellaini in front of smalling and Lindelof. Their out ball to Woods was totally nullified.

The payoff was fullbacks pushed much further forward. Shaw caused problems all game. Can't wait for Dalot to push Tony V out of the team.

The attitude of the whole team was much better. Far more committment of players into their box. We worked hard and deserved to win.

Rom must be more clinical and Pogba more influential for us to mount any type of title challenge.

02 Sep 2018 18:18:44
Beast, you couldn't even wait until the match was over before you spouted your negative nonsense. I hate to break it to you pal, but Jose has forgotten more about football than you'll ever know.

We were in complete control of that game for 90 minutes. Despite the best efforts of an incredibly poor referee, we went to Turf Moor and dominated, a notoriously difficult place to play. We defended well, the midfield played well, especially Fellaini. We created a lot of chances and on another day that's a 5-0 result.

The away fans were amazing as always. The manager and the players deserve credit for the result today. A lot of pressure from fans and media who would love to see us crash and burn but we coped with that pressure today and that result is just the tonic we needed before the international break.

No need to hit the doomsday whistle just yet.

02 Sep 2018 18:38:37
Ridiculous to have a pop at Fellaini before the game even starts.

Not a fan of him myself but he played well at the World Cup and gives teams something else to think about.

From the last performance and result it’s not as if you can say that no one could be dropped.

Good solid performance. Hope Rashford is fined and disciplined by the club for his actions as in another match that could of cost us. At 2-0 up players should be ensuring that all the pressure remains on the opposition.

Annoying Pogba had his penalty saved. Don’t like his run up it makes me nervous!

02 Sep 2018 18:41:19
Good post mumbles and veey good analysis dodgy
Beast how often are burnley badly beaten at turf moor?

02 Sep 2018 18:46:32
No harm beast but your statement saying if we went for them we’d have won by about 5. Well, lukaku alone probably should have had 5 himself? That was a good solid performance. Unfortunatley marred by rashfords silly reaction.

02 Sep 2018 18:58:02
Ken I just find this type of post unbearable to read. We all know Beast's views, some I agree with, some I don't. But to slate a player and the manager before the match has even kicked off, in the hope it all goes pear shaped so he could say "I told you so" is so annoying.

If we lose or draw then he is well within hi's rights to have a pop, but to do it before the game quite frankly is disgraceful.

02 Sep 2018 19:07:38
Funny how Klopp brings in henderson the back passer he is lauded for shoring up the midfield, yet when Fellaini is brought in for us its negative and horrible.

Grow up beast we won 2-0 and couldve been 5 or 6.

02 Sep 2018 19:13:08
How often have Fulham beat them 4-2 and how many times have Burnley struggled with Europe and Sundays? They aren't the same animal as last year.

We won today comfortably, so it's easy for you all to spout off.

However my point is true, we drop a £60m signing for a defensive player to combat the threat of Burnley - we won, should have won by more. I think we would have won by a lot more had we played more offensive mobile midfielders personally.

02 Sep 2018 19:14:01
Crikey even when we win comfortably against a decent side away there is moaning. Beast you’ve missed your calling in life and should have been Parisian waiter 😃.

02 Sep 2018 18:23:15
It’s as simple as this, Fellaini shouldn’t be anywhere near the starting eleven for Manchester United.

02 Sep 2018 20:07:49
Bilko, bore off.

Fellaini a very good player. If that's the case he shouldn't be anywhere near that Belgian squad either.

02 Sep 2018 20:09:15
He shouldn't but we won and attacked until the last minute. didn't sit back and hold onto our lead.

02 Sep 2018 20:25:00

Fellaini is a big lump, you think he would have got anywhere near a United team ahead of the likes of Keane and Scholes.?
You think he’d get anywhere near the City or Liverpool first elevens?

02 Sep 2018 20:25:04
Am I the only one who likes Fellaini.

02 Sep 2018 21:11:30
No Eric, you're not.

I also think he does a job, consummate professional, played well today against a team that is normally, very physical, made his presence felt, the lad did good today.

02 Sep 2018 21:11:30
No Eric, you're not.

I also think he does a job, consummate professional, played well today against a team that is normally, very physical, made his presence felt, the lad did good today.

02 Sep 2018 21:36:14
I like him. Never hid that fact.

02 Sep 2018 21:44:15
Im not a big fellaini fan he doesn't suit my eye at all.
That said and I've always said he gives 100% the manager likes him and he has certain attributes which woek for jose. He has a great attitude and spirit.
He does a job when called upon and usually does it well.
We might well have won today with fred in the team but we did win with fellaini and he did his job well so credit where its due.

02 Sep 2018 22:38:27
Bilko is right. Would Fellaini get in the team at any of Europe's top clubs?

The answer is no and you all know it. For all you bigging him up, I challenge you tell me I am wrong.

02 Sep 2018 22:39:51
I’m not a United fan but just thought I would say, Burnley will finish in the bottom 5 or 6 this year. Already struggling badly with having to cope with European football. I think you may well win your next 4 games as well, you have a nice run of fixtures coming up but still expect you to be scrapping spurs for 4th and 5th at the end of the season.

02 Sep 2018 22:55:10
Beast. I understand your point completely. We should've put 5 past Burnley. Lesser teams have put plenty past them this season. Its a win, but if we can't beat Burnley comfortably, then God help us. I can't believe the near hysteria over beating a second rate team that is going to get plenty of hammerings this season.
Ps. Any of the optimistics care to tell us how Spurs did against Watford today? No? Thought so.

02 Sep 2018 23:19:31
Mancman, the simple fact is, we're not one of Europe's top clubs just now, so we take what we can. He's a Belgian international, always gives his best, never seems to feel sorry for himself with all the abuse he gets, and most importantly he gives us another option. I've said before, if a few other players in the team showed the same desire and intensity as Fellaini, we might not be where we are just now. Other teams don't like playing against him. We certainly didn't when he played for Everton.

02 Sep 2018 23:43:45
United had plenty of midfielders that were in and around that united 'squad' with scholes and Keane. Some of which some would say should not have been around that squad. But they were and very much contributed to the cause.

It's very disrespectful to a footballer as good as fellaini to claim he should be nowhere near the team. You must have a short memory, I'm pretty sure I and others can name at least 5 players that were in and around that time.

You just have a personal dislike for fellaini.

City and Liverpool have many players I wouldn't have had in United's squad. Delph, shaqiri, wijnaldum, Henderson and others.

However they are there and all contribute. Again, very disrespectful to a very good player in fellaini.

03 Sep 2018 07:56:35
Fellaini does a job and does it well. Remember in the World Cup when Belgium played Brazil he broke every Brazil attack up and had Neymar in his pocket. 😆😆.

03 Sep 2018 08:48:46
Noucamp, we are not one of Europe's top clubs? Sorry, but I have to take issue with that. I agree that Fellaini shows heart and desire but he simply lacks the necessary quality. Yes, he gets a game for Belgium, but Martinez is hardly a managerial genius.

How depressing that as utd supporters your standards have fallen so far that you believe Fellaini should be playing for Utd.

03 Sep 2018 10:52:09
Are we playing like one of Europe's top clubs just now? That was my point. You cut your cloth accordingly.

03 Sep 2018 10:58:41
I don’t have any personal dislike of Fellaini, he does what he does and always gives 100%, he’s just not good enough to be anywhere near the first eleven for a club that’s one of the biggest in world football .

03 Sep 2018 13:25:22
Noucamp, the reason we are not playing like one of Europe's top clubs is that we have players like Fellaini in the team and a manager that approaches all our games like we are not one of Europe's top clubs. It's all just self fulfilling and the low expectations of supporters who think this is all OK is not helping.

03 Sep 2018 13:31:06
Fellaini gets stick even when he's played very well. Been happening since lvg days.


No he wohldnt get in to a team above keane and scholes, we did however have a few more options than just those 2 even in the glory days AND
God forbid it we even played some of them when keane or scholes couldnt. an he's not here for that.

Hes a UTD player, he comes on to make an impact and it works.

03 Sep 2018 13:42:44
I'm not going to wish him away. No-one is saying he's a brilliant footballer. He is a good squad player that offers a different option. While he puts on a red shirt and carries on doing what he's doing, he'll get my support. I find he's been a useful scapegoat for the club's ills since he was signed.

03 Sep 2018 13:57:32
OK then ezrs, tell me that Fellaini would get a game with any of City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Real, Barca, Juve, Bayern, PSG, Athletico or even Napoli, Spurs, Monaco or Dortmund.

03 Sep 2018 14:11:32
Noucamp, are you saying you like the hoof it up to the big man option Fellaini gives us? Or would you prefer the Fergie option of battering the opposition into submission with self belief and proper football? It's one or the other because the two are incompatible.

I don't personally dislike Fellaini but he represents everything that is currently wrong with Man Utd.
