Where Is Manchester United?

After their 8-2 drubbing of Arsenal things were looking bright as the world of football heaped praise on the youth and vibrancy the team had, ever since then things have changed. At the moment Manchester United are a shadow of the team that started off the season so well and now looks like a team that will struggle in the nPower Championship.

It’s been months since fans have seen The Reds’ play the type of football they have displayed over the years. A huge dip in form has seen United struggle for results in all competitions, some may point to the loss of Tom Cleverly, but Manchester United is a team of players not just one individual.

If the 6-1 loss to bitter rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford and a Carling Cup exit to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford as-well wasn’t enough to have fans of the proclaimed Pride Of Europe to hang their heads in shame and disappointment then a group stage exit from this seasons UEFA Champions League in the hands of FC Basel 1893 in Switzerland definitely did.

Finishing third place in a group where they were expected to be group winners will now see United continue their journey for European glory in the Europa League instead, this is going to be the first time they have taken part in this competition.

  1. Soon as i saw cleverley injured i know it was gonna be a big issue. Carrick and Fletcher in the midfield does not give u the same ball movement

    1. Both players are defensive minded players so both of them on the pitch at the same time is always going to be an issue. With Cleverley in there you get both defense and offense, the team was already getting a rhythm with him playing and that left with his injury.
      I must say i’m disappointed that one player seem to have sucked the life out the entire team.
