Buckle up kids, this is going to get worse. I've been following United since 1967 -im 60 years old -today in fact. I was a George Best fanatic as a kid hence the user name.

67-68-69-70 we were top of the pile under Sir Matt - by 74 we were crap. Best often said he wanted out at UTD when he looked around the dressing room saw the calibre of player they were recruiting - not 100% the reason of course, but he said it.

W e won't do a Leeds we won't get relegated we won't trouble the bottom 6, but there is something almost as bad -take it from someone who lived through it kids, -and that's being mediocre . The feeling of looking at the league tables not even glancing at the top 6,reading how the manager of Carlisle, Coventry, Birmingham fancy their chances at OT . looking at fixture v palace, sheffield Wednesday, Norwich thinking. "mmm if we can get a point here,2 points there. we can stay in 8th. " it is soul destroying . that can be a reality for us and anyone who doesn't believe it is kidding themselves.

Happy Birthday Boyfromburrenway

Trodden a very similar path

One of the reasons I get so frustrated is the feeling of being irrelevant and just waltzing into it. I remember discussing transfers with my brother in the early 70’s and he said that one of the managers, I think OFarrell had asked for significant players but they refused. There was arrogance that young players would just come through.

People don’t realise it is utterly numbing to be irrelevant, soul destroying as you say.

Happy birthday, I’m 63 and know where you’re coming from. Remember going on a coach to watch away games in the old 2nd division. Don’t think that’s going to happen but we’re in a mess.

Happy Birthday and a great post!

Happy birthday Burren used to tune in Mr best seniors televisions
I'm 56 but at least then it seemed like they were trying
Best way to describe at least five of last night's starters is slow and below average
It's bound to knock the confidence of those who have some prospects when the 'senior' players seem like they couldn't be assed.

Clearly I'm a youngster at 52 years old, although I feel much older having slept poorly last night. I just couldn't get that performance out of my head.

We are absolutely clueless when teams sit back. Nobody wants to show for the ball or make any sort of movement. That's been the case all season so I can't I understand why we haven't worked on that. Not sure if it's a failure of coaching or the players couldn't care less.

Watching Wolves tonight and I would take 6-7 of their players over ours. That's a clear indictment of our recruitment policy.
