Shinji Kagawa v West Bromwich

Shinji Kagawa was given just 45 minutes today as United crashed to a 2-1 home defeat against West Brom.

Subbed off at half time for youngster Adnan Januzaj, grumbling about Moyes’ use of Kagawa continue and Moyes’ comments post game are unlikely to appease fans of the Japanese player.

Speaking after the game, manager David Moyes said:

“We wanted Shinji to feel like he’s getting an opportunity to show what he can do.”

The statement almost mocks Kagawa’s situation but it’s an improvement I guess from no game time at all he’s now played 2 on the trot even if it was only for one half today!

    Moyes look don’t panic just remember one thing these player is the backborne of united the should not be replace in case if we are winning are rest them for big match. The player is
    rafael,vidic,evra in defences
    valencia,carrick in midfield
    rooney in attack.

    Rafael and valencia have great understanding they help each other both in attack and defences.

    For evra now you must know why sir alex play him every match and still looking for his replacement.

    For vidic he is the boss not ferdinand. Vidic you can pair him with evans,jones or who you want but he must not be bench or sub. The rotation mean changing partner but vidic should remain right there no replacement in case of injuries.

    And final rooney we are bless that we have w.rooney in man utd and you know well what rooney can do. We all fan love him.

    Fellaini he will take little time to adapt and then he will become regular just like carrick.

    All the best moye for champion league match and i hope to see these player which i have mention.
    As united big fan i don’t want united to lose such match but i understand he don’t know the player very well.

    Moyes is the right man for our club. He has a good understanding of our club. I do feel however he needs to grow into the job more and Mae his own stamp on the team, if he doesn’t trust a player to follow his tactics then he has to change it.

    He will get better with time and if he is backed in the market our transition period will be short. The squad itself is the problem. Even though we didn’t strenghten in the summer we have a poor squad that has been exposed as a poor team lacking class in not only the middle but all over.

    I really hope moyes gets the time to rebuild this old squad that he has inherited, the way forward is with moyes and his staff and not rio evra, carrick, young Anderson nani etc…..

    Moyes replaced kagawa with Januzaj because he wanted to make Januzaj happy so that he is going to sign the contract ,what else? if that was a really tactical reason then i give up. I read jap news paper about kagawa and he said something like ” at first half I wanted to be involved with the attacking more and I shoul have, but I thought everything was going ok had kind of feeling that we would have a good chance to score at second half but got subbed I just have to work hard even more.” I really think he should leave the club.
