Huh, a football post! I do think Moyes has handled the Rooney situation really well, considering there was still meant to be bad feeling between them when Moyes came in. Not only did he make sure Rooney stayed, he has got him playing better than last season, neither of which is any small feat.
Moyes still has a lot to prove, but we're seeing a slow and steady improvement in the performances, and if he can address the issues he says he wants to in the next transfer windows, we should see further improvements. I still think this is a transition year, but it was good to see us remind the opposition who we are - The Champions.

Says the guy so upset that he's had no reply a week later that he had to post his own reply as a desperate plea for attention.
Oink, as you say, oink.

It is a story about United, so it's automatically an embarrassment as far as you're concerned. We know this, you've repeated it so many times, so why don't you just shut up and sit in the corner?
The grown ups are trying to talk here.

I do agree that the absence of other signings is embarrassing, especially as they'd made it explicit that they wanted more players than just him.
Frankly, United should have offered that amount for Fellaini at the start and saved the fuss. From what I've read, Woodward was the one insisting on under-bidding, believing that cubs would fold just because we're United, even with Fabregas and Barca. If that's true, the guy's an idiot, and if he doesn't learn from the deserved failure of tactics like that, he's an absolute liability to the club.

See, this is where it's so interesting getting the views of supporters of other teams. So many United fans seem to say we're not physical enough, that we get bossed in midfield too easily, and that we don't have a physically imposing presence.
Hearing the view from 'outside' that those might not be the issues is valuable.
It really will have to be a case of 'wait and see', I think. I don't think Fellaini represents a guarantee of title success, but I also think the ABUs acting as if his signing is embarrassing are, as usual, talking out of their collective #$%$.
Cheers for the thoughtful reply.
