Nope, just the clueless mangers fault.
He's a disease.
He is the very anti thesis of what United represent. Having said that, I don't blame him for it - he has always performed this way and has obviously been fairly effective in certain systems.
The day we get rid of him will be the start of the turn around but unfortunately it will not be under this manager.
Was weird bringing him on in that game when we werent putting balls into the box. In fact there was one time he tried to put a cross in iirc. I think hes kinda part of a package with Ashley young
Huth wasn’t yellow carded at the time. Fellaini was yesterday, so it’s done.
He's a terrible midfielder. Only a club like United would overlook players like Mata and Fred in favour of Fellaini . And he's pointless if Ashley Young isn't playing because no-one else will have the first thought to cross to him
Mata would have been useless as he will be just sprinting and others will be just jogging past him. Fellaini if used in the right way is much more effective than Mata in the PL.
Not sure i agree with that, both players best position is basically in a free role behind the striker in a 4231. Both can play other positions yes but neither have excelled in those other positions during their United careers.
And in the free role behind the striker Mata is a better player and much more suited to the type of football we should be playing. Fellaini can be effective there but only sporadically, while Mata has barely had a run centrally. He played there earlier in the season and was very good but was shunted out wide again soon after.
Though i would say if Mata was brought on last night on the wing then i agree it would have been an equally useless substitution.
I bet you if you take the 20 best matches played by Manchester United since SAF retired then it involves Mata in more than half of them.
Fellaini has veeeery limited uses when he's not inside the box. He should be played as a striker or behind the striker if he's going to be played at all which is also mostly what Mourinho uses him for. He's good to have as a problem for the defenders to deal with when we need to apply pressure but the problem is that you're seeing Fellaini play it usually means we're not doing so well and that sums up his career with us.
Why the hell are we playing him as a CM ? He has proved loads of times he's only useful in both boxes. He should only play as attacking option. Fecking keep him away from middle of the park.
Exactly. He cannot play as a CM. He is only good up top or in defence in our box. Why didn't we push him up forward and bombard their box? Jose is an imbecile.
That 'he always gives 100% and puts a shift in narrative' sure helped for their first goal. Lazy bumbling idiot.
Hes been shite since the haircut. i didnt even notice him all night
Shhhh Pogba is the lazy one. It must be his fault somehow.
He played like a not-very-good midfielder, which is what he is. Still, whatever.
He did create a sitter for Pogba who missed. He is useless as a CM. We all know that from experience. So why was he not pushed forward when it was the obvious choice? It is the fault of the Manager who has no clue now.
He worked hard to try and win the ball but he just doesnt have the positional awareness and responsibility to protect the defense. Probably still better than Matic in the position though which shows how low the standards have dropped
Fellaini was pressing the player putting the cross in and he still got closer to the goalscorere than Pogba
That goal was on Pogba not Fellaini
Yes. At least Fellaini wins the ball. Matic is out of position and doesnt win the ball much either.
Fellaini won 5 tackles, 1 interception and 5 clearances. He just has no natural ability to protect the defense.
Funnily enough, you'd find Fella in plenty of them.
Imagine thinking that Felliani is a good option to play in front of the back four in Europe. I kind of get it against the likes of Burnley, but honestly it was so unnecessary.
8 more games.
Great player.Give him a new contract.
I am counting Fellaini's cycle of 1 good game in 10 where he scores some decent or important goal which makes his fans raise their voice about how important he is to this team and laugh to anyone who criticise him, only for him to show absolutely nothing in next ten games whether starting or coming on as a sub, and wasting our attacking substition for a player that changes our style of football to constant hoofing and actually ruin our chances of winning games.
I actually didn't count well, it's seven more games.
Don't start him. Just bring him on in the last 10 mins to equalize. Fantastic player.
He has his moments but it’s been proven over 5 and a half seasons he isn’t good enough. Still though he got a pay rise, a two year contract and continues to start games. Sums up why the club is a mess and same can and will be said about others in this squad as well.
For the goal he's been covering for somebody who's been missing on the left-handside of the field, guess who didn't track back and Fellaini had to switch from the right to the left.
He's also created the best chance for our team before the goal, one that should've been an assist if somebody didn't feck it up royally. Other than that he's been better than other 'midfielders' we had on yesterday, which doesn't really say much as we were turgid as shit.
No I will not. If you're noticing Fellaini during a match it means the team is playing badly.
Sure. Can't be arsed to check and verify but I did think about this long time ago back when Fella was deemed useless on here and I came up with close to 10 of our best games since Fergie which he started. Needless to say there aren't many of those, hence I said he featured in 'plenty' of our good showings.
I don't think there's much that sums us up more than taking off an attacking full back for a fecking tree at half time. Proceeded to then stink up the joint and assassinate a steward sitting by the corner flag with a fecking shot at goal.
31.8% pass accuracy today. Thats some accomplishment
Will be praised for winning a few headers. That’s the metric used to assess his performances.
You have to laugh sometimes.

Terrible again, felt like he played more passes to Liverpool players than to his own teammates.
When you’ve got no control in midfield who do you call on?
33% pass accuracy or something like that, according to the PL studio
