by Up Front

Manchester United suffered a third successive defeat in all competitions last night as Sunderland beat them 2-1 in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi final.

They were dumped out of the FA Cup by Swansea City at Old Trafford last weekend, and currently sit seventh in the Premier League.

Will most United fans have been supportive of David Moyes since he took over, patience is starting to wear very thin with some big games on the horizon both domestically and in the Champions League.

How long would you stick with him for?

    If it was a case of just not getting the result I would just accept it… but Moyes clearly does not have a clue when it comes to the skills of each player, he makes questionable team selections, he can’t seem to change or adapt the game plan during a match (something which gave us a second chance whenever we fell behind in a game) and everyone seems to have figured out his style of play because it looks like our opponents know exactly what we’re gonna do before we actually do it. Shares are dropping, we’re losing money every minute of everyday, not forgetting the Glaziers debt… I can’t see how we’ll be able to afford our current squad this time next year let alone buy new players (another stupid idea since we have so many quality players out on loan). My solution would be… use this transfer window to try and bring back Bebe, Macheda and Jesse Lingard… if they want to stabilise the midfield and have a bit more defense… buy Victor Wanyama (Southampton) or Dembéle (Spurs)… and keep Rio off the pitch, being loyal to a legend is luxury we can’t afford right now.
