Everything seemed to be getting back on track for David Moyes and his struggling Manchester United, after a ‘surprise’ win at Sunderland, but yet another draw with in-form Southampton pushed Manchester United on a downward spiral.
Everything seemed to be getting back on track for David Moyes and his struggling Manchester United, after a ‘surprise’ win at Sunderland, but yet another draw with in-form Southampton pushed Manchester United on a downward spiral. A miserable transfer window and a manager who is failing to motivate his team has brought the team down from being a tough team to get pass, to a demotivated bunch of stars. Not so long ago, everything was put into place by United’s best player in the last season, Michael Carrick.
He commented on the situation and said, “Looking at the table as it is now is not something we are used to. It is frustrating because things are not going the way we want. But as players we have to stand up, take responsibility and get better. We just have to keep believing. We are still confident. Everything is in place but for some reason, at the moment, we are not quite clicking and not quite firing.”
Before the game, Manchester United celebrated the news of their versatile starlet Adnan Janujaz signing a new 5-year contract at the club. The midfielder was also among the scheme of things on the pitch when his through ball assist to Wayne Rooney saw it cut past two defenders before getting in past the net by Robin van Persie. Let alone Janujaz, their summer signing Marouane Fellaini looked hopeless on the pitch and was also greeted with some sarcastic applause on his substitution.
“For David, winning a trophy would be a fantastic achievement. No matter what it is – the League Cup, FA Cup, European Cup or Premier League. We’ve always had priorities obviously and David is aware of that but I hope he achieves it.” said Sir Alex recently. But with 11 points adrift of Arsenal in the League and a patchy form, a trophy-less season awaits Moyes.
