3-1 Hernandez 78'
i predicted 3-0 to Chelsea, but hey game finished 3-1 to Chelsea. Well-played and kudos to Eto'o for his hat-trick
Was quite unlucky at the start there, Utd started quick and more likely to score until Eto'o scored! :/ I think the problem was having Januzaj as the No 10, it didn't work last time so Moyes switched Kagawa and him around and we did better, tbh Hernandez should of been on where Januzaj was and Januzaj where Young was! So many times the ball went into the box and nobody was there and if Hernandez was on he would of been there! But hey ho, wasn't expecting to win.. maybe a draw but weren't expecting a Chelsea striker to score! let alone a hat trick ;) We will have to go for that 4th spot though! (Hopefully!)
Utd are a shadow of their former selves. The defending was rubbish today. Need investment right through the squad. If Rooney and/or RvP leaves they are completely screwed.
Moyes I don't think is good enough, I mean to start Young and Jones who were both just back from injury over Kagawa (who had his best match vs Swansea last week) and Fletcher who has been excellent was just idiotic, I wouldn't play a fully fit Ashley Young let alone one back from injury. As it was, Jones' mistake led to the first goal and it was all downhill from there. They need signings but tbh who would go to Utd now? which top player could they get (that wouldn't be enticed more by a PSG or Madrid) On the other hand, RVP and Rooney have started 8 games together, winning 6 and drawing 2 so maybe Moyes has been a bit unlucky as well. As it stands Everton, Spurs and Liverpool are playing way better than Utd but to be fair Utd are only 6 points off 4th place so it's hardly an impossible task
Utd missed strikers. First goal was deflection. Wellbeck is a second rate player.
Moyes is the fall guy. He's had no support whatsoever. Team needed heavy investment a few years ago, but Ferguson managed to plough on regardless. Feel sorry for him, can't imagine any manager taking over this team and getting instant success. I hope he is given time.
In this day and age when money rules the game, I don't think time is a luxury any manager has, especially at the top clubs.
It's not about instant success, it's about losing at home to Newcastle and West Brom amongst others.
I never expected instant success at united with Moyes as there has been a lot of changes and this can sometimes have a knock on effect and it has. For me Chelsea is a game united can lose this season the same against City and the gunners but we should be beating the other teams. The quad is ageing and this happens all the time it took Sir Alex 3 seasons in the mid 00's to rebuild a ageing squad and I think it will take 3 seasons for Mayes too. People forget we have missed key players this year like Rooney and RVP we have ageing players like gig and Reo as well as players that have never really hit form at united like Anderson and Young. But if you look at the squad we have a very good set of young players ready to break into the 1st team and add 3 or 4 new faces in the summer I think United can be back in the hunt for the league, Yes we may not make the top 4 this season but that dose not mean United are on there way down Chelsea finished outside the top 4 not so long ago. Mayes is the right man at united and the biggest issues is the spoilt united fans who have seen united win something year after year. They need to wake up and see that Sir Alex is a one off and no one will do what he has done in our life time but Moyes can bring success to United and we are still in with a shot at winning the league cup which for me would be something impressive if Moyes can win that or even get United to the final.
A weaker United side with bad tactics and injured stars lost to the second best team in the league (player wise). Shock horror.
