It’s been a real slog for Manchester United this season. Terrible results compounded by even worse performances have lead to some questioning the wisdom of David Moyes’s continued tenure at the club.
Whatever you think of the newish Manchester United manager you have to say that he’s had some terrible injuries to deal with in the squad this season. You could argue that yesterday was the first time that Moyes has been able to name his strongest XI. This would obviously include the recently purchased record signing Juan Mata.
We have also reported lately on the apparently glum gait of RvP. So this picture, taken yesterday, is pleasing for so many reasons. It not only shows the 4 most potent United players on the field together, but also illustrates the happiness of RvP. He is clearly still enamoured by his team, despite recent reports that he’s unsettled.
With Fellaini back and Mata gaining match fitness with every game things are starting to look brighter. Manchester United were still clunky yesterday but the new 4-2-3-1 formation should be given time to gel. We also think that Marouane Fellaini has the perfect opportunity to make an impact now, after a poor start to his Manchester United career. If he can kick on and show some of the form that got him his move to Manchester United then he could become a vital component to this team, not only in the league, but in the exciting Champions League games ahead.
This picture tells us that there is harmony between the top players at Manchester United. Perhaps they are about to do a Chelsea 2012 in The Champions League…..
Manchester United fans, can Fellaini finally traps the nettle at the club?
