Seriously though will agree that Man U have been poor but honestly they have been on the decline for a few years now. Frankly the shit performances are just happening much more frequently and are much more noticeable now than ever. Wouldnt surprise me if come May they win the league though despite being poor.
I agree although we had some cracking performances last year. but 10/11 season wasn't great apart from a few berbatov shows, 09/10 rooney was awesome and we played some good stuff that year in certain games (vs milan, gunners, bayern, city in the cup) valencia was on top form but it was quite rigid if i remember correctly unlucky to lose league like. But yeah it is more noticeable this year injuries i understand you can't help (maybe the medical staff can) but it all boils down to the inability to improve the CM's and move on from past partnerships for example carrick/fletch today it's not 2009 anymore i can't think of another top prem team that has had the same cm's for 4-5 years with the exception of cleverley.
Silent young had that one back heel and maybe one cross but other than that he just did all the simple stuff because he's either shit scared to take someone on or he simply can't. funnily enough his best attribute is defending/covering evra.
Spot on peep. chelsea, pool and arsenal have declined so the only threat is from city.
