      • Numerous times he was open in the hole and they didn’t pass to him. He only ever got the ball when he dropped way back to retrieve. Of course, I kid a little. But, still…

      • Your conclusion that that means they don’t trust him is pretty extreme.

        If they really didn’t trust him, he would not be on the field

      • Of course, then obviously if it’s not that they don’t trust him, then it must be tactical to stay wide instead of playing through middle. Stay with me.

      • Di Maria, Januzaj, Shaw, Rafael,

        Man U mostly attacks with them bombing down the flanks. United have traditionally preferred to go down the wings.

        Oh and you’d think Van Persie would certainly trust Blind, his WC teamate and provider of the cross for THAT WC goal.

      • EVERYBODY knows this, including Mourinho. I was merely wondering, through a joke you still don’t get, why LvG didn’t adjust and use Blind more effectively.

      • Blind is new.

        LVG can do all the adjusting he wants but it will still take time.

        And he is not he is not the play maker Di Maria is.

        Right now, if you are a United player Di Maria is the guy you want with the ball when you are attacking.

        Attempts at jokes or humor do not translate on SBI.

        Such attempts in order to be successful require a certain amount of knowledge about the person making the attempt at humor and what their intentions are.

        None of us know anything about you ,what you intend or whether you mean what you say.

        If you want to say something on SBI, say it directly.

        If you are too clever by half don’t blame everyone else if your humor falls flat.

  1. The color commentator for Spurs v Newcastle is ruining this game. He’s so incredibly negative, everything is lacking and not good enough. It’s so depressing to listen to, anyone agree?
