    Not really understanding your post. Are you saying he should have done better or couldnt have done better?

    :lol: It was alderweireld who was marking Umtiti, Fellaini only tried after alderweireld lost his man.

    Great agenda though.

    Hes been OK overall to be fair to him, apart from his terrible defending for the goal the only other downside to his game today has been that he has been tasked with marking Pogba and hasnt managed to lay a glove on him all game so far.

    Just watched again. He was the closest to him and Umtiti made him look silly. Jeez why can't you admit the obvious

    Is this is a sarcastic post? Plenty of people have beaten him in the air. He's obviously still a decent threat

    I've already done that, I'll try to put it in more blunt words so that you understand it this time: you're clueless. He wasn't marking Umtiti, if you cannot pick that out after odd 50 minutes of the game you're either blinded by agenda or completely clueless, or both. Given your history of shitposting in his thread, I'd go with the third option.

    I agree. Im only responding to the hype in here.

    Honestly I think he's much better off higher up on the pitch. As Osman once said, Fellaini gets shakier the closer the comes to his box.

    They jumped together and Umtiti won the duel. Now either Fellaini jumped randomly and Toby went for a coffee or else he was the one marking him.

    Attacking the poster and talking about agendas makes you very mature indeed.

    Yeah just re-watch the match again and try focusing on any prior corner, perhaps after a couple of hours you'll be able to pick it up, fingers crossed.

    As said, he gets more useful higher on the pitch.

    At the same time they'll think Alderweireld would be a brilliant signing.

    So I guess you fight alot infront of the mirror.

    Please tell me more about this agenda I have or better still. Obey the rules, be respectful to fellow posters and stick to the topic.

    I really don't know how you can fully blame Fellaini for that goal :lol:
    Umtiti isn't Fellaini's man on set pieces, but once Umtiti got in front, Fellaini did what he could to stop him.

    Problem is, unless Fellaini could literally walk through Umtiti, how else is he supposed to win that header when the ball was at a perfect height for him

    tbf he's quite dangerous when used as a shadow striker in a team that uses direct football.

    Oh oh, what a rebuttal. I haven't insulted you anywhere now have I? I haven't called you an idiot, perhaps this is a conclusion that you have arrived at following your own posts?

    ok then here's a star.

    If that's what it takes for you to stick to the subject.

    Jeez at least if I insult someone I'll have the balls to admit it. Oh well.

    He is not really good at jumping though, so he is beatable in the air.

    Now this is attacking the poster, I'm perfectly on the subject, it wasn't Fellaini's man as per confirmation by other posters here, you're in the wrong, given your history it's obvious you're agenda driven, what don't you understand here?

    Well he's dangerous when attacking but he seems to lacks discipline in his box. Hence why I think he's much better as a shadow striker then defensively.

    yep I've got plenty of agendas against a United player I've never met. Let me buy you a tin foil hat

    PS if I insult someone I have the guts to admit it and face the consequences of it. Im neither a coward nor a child.

    I think it depends a lot on the cross rather than Fellaini's heading, Fellaini on most days will clear an average cross, no one can do anything if a world class cross comes in. I agree though he is good at attacking crosses as he would have a run up.

    If he had got a proper haircut he might have scored with the chance he got.

    That hair can't help.

    I think he was the man marking Umtiti. My point though wasn't to criticise him because as you said the cross was quite good tbh. I was attacking the hype around him by those who think he's a great DM or he's unbeatable in air. He's not.

    He can be effective as no 10 though.

    France have been excellent at stopping Belgium from getting good crosses into the box. Best way of stopping him.

    that's what pisses me off from OShea. I don't really hate Phil Neville (I tend to attack his hype though and lack of football IQ). He's an average player but he always gave his 100% on the pitch. OShea had so much potential but somehow lost his way. In my humble opinion, if he had Phil's attitude to challenge himself to become better then we would have had a special player in him.

    I'm not Fellaini's no 1 fan but I have to admit that as a no 10 he can be dangerous. Modern defenders aren't used to have someone whose so tall and so physical against them. He's not half as good as his fanboys portray him to be. However in that role he can be a nuisance
