Does anyone think Moyes can keep United up?

Excellent title Alex

 

Can't imagine Moyes can get United relegated, that squad is still incredibly good even if he's not.

They're "too good to go down," surely. :)

Oh I do. Mocking the work experience guy that United have got in gives me a heroin like buzz.

ETA: Because I'm sad and small minded like that :)

On that topic, I strongly urge you all to have a quick look at the #MoyesOut hashtag. Its a worldwide collection of spoilt, whinging, glory hunting weapons.

Excellent viewing.

I thought that was an ironic dig at the biggest spoilt, whinging douche (Tearsy Piers)? I suppose the internet has no irony in it.

They said the same about Steve Kean and Blackburn! Didn't they? Probably not, actually!

Nope! United's global network of screaming children is a sight to behold

I would asume that Moyes would get his shit together but really, it's too much fun fantasizing about him dragging United to a respectable sixth.

I mean, them finishing outside of the CL places isn't a completely absurd prospect, is it? United, City, Spurs, Arsenal. That's 4. Even Liverpool are there. And suarez is back.

 

Personally I think the fight between United and Hull City Tigers for 6th should be a very good one.

Looks like Mourinho may finally be relenting after today: http://talksport.com...ace-13092862019

Must win for Liverpool tomorrow now. Anything but an Arsenal win now would be great.

No one really understands it. Mata doesn't defend as well as Oscar, which is fair, and true. But what he provides going forward is invaluable. It's more than worth losing a bit defensively. To be fair, Oscar has been playing well as the "10" -- it's just that he's not yet as good as Mata. Because Mata is Chelsea's best player, this is obvious to anyone who watched last season. 

 

edit: He's "earned", his place? What utter bollox. Jose basically is forced to play him as we look less creative without him, didn't his performances the last two seasons clue him into the fact he might be good enough? Whatever, as long as he's starting I feel better about our chances of scoring.

Unless I'm informed otherwise, I'm just going to assume that Mourinho and Mata kissed each other, then it got a bit awkward so Mourinho benched him.

My pet theory has been an illicit orgy with Mata, Kagawa, Ms. Moyes, and Ms. Mourinho.

Moyes' daughter, Lauren, is a bit tasty. Maybe Kagawa went there.
