    I remember him encouraging quicker play and passing to break down tired defences, and lots of our late goals coming from a collective upping of the tempo with the crowd playing its part. And yeah we'd sometimes put Brucie or a defender up there to get on the end of corners and crosses, but for knock-downs from 70 yard hopefully punts - yeah I don't remember much of that, and certainly don't remember a squad player who's main use was that purpose.

    Probably a fair hint of rose tinted glasses to go along with that, though.

    He’s become that because our team is weak aerially. Would I get rid? Yes but only when we get people in who can head the ball - it’s a useful asset to have

    Oh and i fully remember our defenders or even the gk kicking it long, hoping for a knock down. Yes there was greater urgency but the hoofs were there too. That’s why Fergies sides were great, they could play you off the park, outrun you, out-muscle you or go long

    It'll be a great day when he finally leaves. I will forever associate him with our post-Ferguson era of mediocrity.

    The ideal situation is we get rid of Fellaini while also getting a dominant world class Centre back. It would sort us out in so many ways really. We are horrible at handling the 1st ball on set pieces/crosses, horrible at clearing our lines in the same situations and we can move the centre back up top instead of using a substitution. We've been lacking a leader at the back for years.

    Valencia's been a good servant for us and he's a proper pro but I will be quite glad to see him move on. Our FB positions need upgrading bigtime.

    But not as many as others seem to think.

    He has been a good hard working if inconsistent player in his time at United though.

    This thread smells like Bull dung. So much bs. Why on earth would Inter Milan want Valencia?

    You’re right Fergie wasn’t averse to throwing a CB up front for the last few minutes in dire circumstances. But it wasn’t his go to plan B in pretty much every game he wasn’t winning around 60-70 minutes like it was for Mourinho.

    Thats a straight up lie. We spent half of last season bringing on one of Rashford or Martial to change the game.

    Looking at the sub appearances in the League and Europe in his first 2 seasons:

    Rashford - 42
    Mata - 12
    Martial - 29
    Fellaini - 26

    So yeah, Fellaini was our third most used sub, and he played plenty as a midfield sub and not as an attacking sub. Rashford, Martial and Mata only came on as attacking subs.

    I didn’t mind Fellaini but it is his time to move on. He was the scapegoat quite often but I wish him all the best.

    Best of luck to him, if true. He’s been a very good servant to the club, and for a time was excellent for us. Right time to go, and I have no issue with him getting a free transfer if it helps him get a club like Inter.

    Dybala doesn't play as a striker though.

    Great way to start a discussion. First off i never specifically mentioned as a sub, Fellaini was moved upfront in plenty of games he started because we were losing or drawing.

    Secondly on subs before calling someone a liar i assume you have of course only factored in the games where Fellaini was fit and on the bench and only counted the games where we were losing/drawing at the time of the sub?

    Or is this just all subs from all the games and you didn't actually put that much thought into it?

    No hate for Fellaini but its time for him to go. He's not United quality and never was. We could do with a significant upgrade on Fellaini.

    I wish him all the best and hope he gets a big contract...just at another club.

    I'd love Coutinho, but dont see how him and Pogba can play in same team together, doesn't make sense.

    Stupidly obvious his agent wrote this. Threatening but with softened edges at the same time.
    I hope we come out and just say we don't want him.

    I doubt it would piss them off. They've improved since he left.
    Ramos though...
