Has anyone noticed the common denominator in our recent success? I'll tell you ? the absence of Fellaini. Simple as that.....
Two games unbeaten without him including dicking that shower of shite; we went 20 games and only lost twice, at the back-end of last year without him.
Say what the fuck you like - the numbers speak for themselves. He's shite and we don't need him in the team.
I'd like to know the exact record we've got with that clown in the team and how much better it is when he's not playing....
Record signing me fuckin' arse......

Fellaini is class played in his correct position.

You also seem willing to block out that jolly Christmas period where we completely turned our season around; Moyes and a vast number of Blues citing Fellaini as one of the main reasons behind that. Or does Xmas depress you that much that you spent the entire holiday drunk out of your skull and so remember nothing of that revival.
Stop making up stats. Jack Rodwell has also been out for those last 2 games. Are you suggesting he's no good and we get shut of him too?
Keep your ridiculous comments to yourself next time.

Any road, Socrates is a Brazilian...and looks like Gil Scott Heron. By Andy's logic all men look like Gil Scott Heron.

Fellaini is one of best players we have. He keeps our game flowing when the ball get through him, intimidates opponets and scores goals.
On another note, I thought Pienaar was very good in the middle until he got tired in the second half (better than Arteta) and Bily wasted a single ball in the first half and did reasonable well without setting the world alight.

Still, he's undeniably good at carrying the ball in midfield, something which we do lack.
20 Posted 25/10/2010 at 15:56:30
What was that? It's all about opinions? Sometimes those opinions get a bit wacky!

22 Posted 25/10/2010 at 16:59:26
Who do you want if he goes? A worn-out Man Utd player, a Chelsea also-ran? A "possible" from the lower leagues?
This guy is class, he can read the game, he sees what's on, he will score in his first game back, and I will donate a million to the team after his next goal??!!

Something to consider is that, had Fellaini played, the shower of shit who wants a push bike and a Barcelona flag would have been dropped. He was so bad on Saturday, I was beginning to think he had borrowed John Oster's boots.

Stuart Barlow, Gareth Farrelly, Brett Angel, John Oster, Alex Nyarko and AVDM - all can be forgiven if you are a quality manager in disguise...

Tony get your shit together and come back on here and let us know what you THINK
38 Posted 25/10/2010 at 22:34:50
39 Posted 25/10/2010 at 22:40:07
I just want to know what he thinks.
Tony, stop being the ultimate anti-hero and give us what you think of the season so far....
40 Posted 25/10/2010 at 22:38:07
Even the great Cahill has a small yet getting smaller group who refuse to recognise true greatness. I like the big fella and think he has so far merely scratched the surface of his potential.
41 Posted 25/10/2010 at 22:57:04
DONT SMOKE YOUR SOCKS!
It obviously makes you blind and a little mad..
42 Posted 25/10/2010 at 22:57:08
But a major fault, he goes wandering out of position and leaves a big gap, and cannot get back, hence why we lost those games.
43 Posted 25/10/2010 at 23:18:34
This is rubbish.
But then again a load of bods have written in.
Fella is our best player. One day and i hope not soon, some club will bid for him big time. Aggressive (yes ,I know ? elbows) Goal scoring, corner defending and box to box he has it all.
Personally, I am big on attitude and Fella's is top.
Rather him than the untouchable Spaniard and the Dutch bad attitude man, or even the Russian man who needs to sort his game. Fella and Jack is the all powerful strong Midfield we should build a team around... especially as they are young enough to allow that to happen.
As for Pienaar, I say ? give him the money; at least he does not hide... even when it does not go right for him.
44 Posted 25/10/2010 at 23:41:24
Pienaar, sign up now, don't expect us to beg.
45 Posted 26/10/2010 at 00:30:19
However, if Moyes's successor is successful then I won't care whether it's Neville, Barlow, Farrelly, Angell, Oster, Nyarko, Van der Meyde ? or whoever. Not all top players make the grade as coaches & many top coaches were no great shakes as players.

Has anyone checked in on Tony Marsh?
50 Posted 26/10/2010 at 06:59:52
The boy will become a man and rule that midfield like a god. Probably.

If Fellaini had been playing in the Liverpool game instead of Heitinga, who has clearly downed-tools so as to prepare for his walk to the Nou Camp, we'd have put 5 past the fuckers.
Recent success? I don't regard 1-1 against Spurs as a success, same as I don't regard Fellaini as 'shite'.

On the other hand there is the deliberate wind-up. Hard to detect, so occasionally they will get through. Best not to be over-used though, as wind-ups devalue the debate, and calling something a wind-up is a bit of a cop-out.
57 Posted 26/10/2010 at 15:38:38
and to one post above.. him and Rodders will be THE dominant central partnership in the Premiership... if (a freakin big if) all things go according to plan...
58 Posted 26/10/2010 at 17:32:58
But only to say that with just nine league games gone, is there a single player who has not been widely condemned for being the epitome of uselessness?
Howard, Hibbert, Neville, Baines, Distin, Heitinga, Bilyaletdinov, Osman, Arteta, Saha, Yakubu, Beckford, Uncle Tom Cobley and all have been accused of not being fit to wear the shirt.
Heavens above, even Jagielka, Pienaar and Cahill - three whose 100 per cent effort and comitment can surely never be questioned - have had an accusative noose placed around their necks.
And now comes this nonsense, that Fellain is the root of all evil.
The evidence: two whole games unbeaten without him and the equally unimpressive assertion that we only lost twice at the back-end of last year without him.
"Say what the fuck you like - the numbers speak for themselves," states author, Andy Callan, rather less than eloquently.
Thanks Andy. I will. What's the point? Playing too much Championship Manager and getting your stats confused with the real thing?
Through a combination of repeated injuries and David Moyes' incomprehensible reluctance to play him in his most effective position, we are only starting to see the vast potential Fellaini possesses.
But now he's crap and we're better off without him you say?
Echoing the sentiments of a few fellow posters above, it's a great pity these pointless, ill-informed threads (and the people who perpetually write them), aren't given the boot - instead of a virtual A-Z of our playing staff.
Who next: Baxter? After all, we always lose when he's on the bench!

Fellaini is class and will be brilliant alongside Arteta when they are both match fit.
