    Man Utd Midfield (serious room for improvement)

    I have just finished watching the Man Utd vs Lille game, what a dissapointment!

    Gone are the days of having the best midfield in Europe. Beckham, Keane, Giggs and Scholes 3 years ago ruled Europe. That was seriously the best midfield in Europe. Now Smith, Fletcher and the tiring pair of Scholes and im sad to say Keane are at best aweful.

    A massive amount of money needs to spent to bring back United to their previous glory days.

    Tonight the only players worth anything were Giggsy and Ronaldo, without those united would have looked like a extremely poor side.

    As for possible replacements for the afore mentioned Ballack is a must and somebody with the fire of Keane, perhaps Gennaro Gattuso of Milan fits the bill, certainly not Alan Smith as a replacement for Keane.

    Perhaps a little bit deeper a replacemnt for Fergie needs to be thought about. I sit there sometimes thinging about the decisions he makes in absolute disarray.

    The winds of change need to be seen at Old Trafford, as another season of no trophies looms.

    The Glaziers need to put the money on the table for the manager to spend!

    • I don't understand why SAF didn't bring on Park earlier, you could see he made an impact on the game with his running.
      I just hope they hurry up and get Saha fit to play and hopefully get back to putting the ball in the net.

    • I think to a certain exten you are right. I personally think that Ballack would be an obvious replacement for Keane. I don't agree that SAF should be replaced yet, although some of the recent decisions are extraordinary. I personally thinks that the players are at fault with their lack of passion for the club with the exception of Ryan Giggs & Wayne Rooney & maybe even Van Nistelrooy

      • show's how much we realy on the 2 player's with pasion,ROONEY & KEANE,surely the old man utd way of blooding up & coming younster's must be here soon.THE GREAT SIR MATT was never affraid to go with it,so come on fergie,STOP listening to that negative portugeser and get the young un on see what HANSON has to say again.you have done it once now show that you are THE GREATEST by doing it

    • Oppononent now knows that if DF holds the ball, attack him and he'll make either bad pass or loose possession. Scholes getting send off again, that's why he should not be captain. JJ Okacha plays better than him. The weakest point is the centre of midfield. No hope of CL and Prem title if there is no immediate change.

    • Just in myself from the game......someone should take Scholes and tell him to go on holiday, give one of the up and coming kids a go...at least they would give it 200%

      • Fergie has paid the price tonight for not signing Owen, and by keeping faith with has been players i.e Giggs and Scholes. How many times is this incompetant man going to carry on trying to play 4-5-1. IT DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get rid of ferguson and the other portuguese muppet and bring in a manager who wants to succeed, Big Sam.
