Yeah, I saw him at home to newcastle - he scored, but the rest of the game passed him by. And I saw him away to Arsenal - the game passed him by and he didn't score. He's like a car before they invented gearboxes.

I thought he had several good games before his suspension/injury. However, he'll never be (maybe Moyes can change that) the type of player who takes the game by the scruff of the neck and dominantes. I think he can do well when paired with a playmaker since he has nice diagonal passes, but hardly ever attacks the goal in any form or fashion. He's not the creative spark nor dominant player we might need in the side to make the next step.

He also needs to work on his quickness in the summer. Clearly lacking in that department as far as I'm concerned. Also makes him late in the tackles and he picks up a booking for consistent fauling - the ref really has no choice after a while but to book him.

I wish he'd attack the goal more as well, even have a pop at goal at times. Can't recall him taking shots at the goal too often, hence I don't know if he has a good shot or not.

And he needs to trim that silly hair as well.

Don`t really rate him, I don`t really see what his strengths are he certainly is not that creative player we hoped we would get with Moutinho.

I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for this season as he might just be confused of his role as he has often been used in a more forward role.

But I wouldn`t be surprised if Moyes looked to sell him to get the funds back in the summer

Same as Cahill

4-5-1 - Good
4-4-2 - Bad

When Cahill has to play in a 4-4-2 he isn't as effective as when he plays in a 4-5-1.

Same with Fellaini.

Very undecided yet.
He's still young
It's his first season in PL
He does look clumsy when tackling - hence the silly bookings

I think also because of our injuries DM has not been able to bring him in gradually.

He will have a great second season for us................... {I Hope}

Once again I thought his booking was a piss take by Bennett, usual story, "Oh look that's the guy with the fucked up hair, he's a very naughty boy him, I best book him or the bosses at the FA will have a go at me"

Their number 22 was booting us all over the field and wasn't once spoken to, Felliani jumps in for a header and gets booked, the same thing happed to Cahill not 5 minutes later, he was clattered from behind but not booked.

The lad is clearly still injured and I will for one withold my judgment until e has played injury free for a while, whereas Castillo can kiss my reasonably sized arse, what a bag of wank he is!

I thought he was excellent when I watched in 'live' against Sunderland. His touch, control, awareness and His weight of passing was fantasic. Yesterday, he was awful. He may still be injured, but players just skipped away from him with ease yesterday. This is a player who was supposed to be dominant in midfield and a player who'd win a lot of battles. Didn't see that yesterday.

I'm prepared to give him time, I hope Moyes does too. He's only 21 and I know there's a big fee attached but that's gone now. If he was an academy player, he might get more time from us. My major worry is that he's very sluggish (even when fully fit) and we'll need to get some athleticism in next to him.

He's gone back to the form we saw when he first arrived - slow and clumsy. He did look really good before he got injured though - so maybe we just need to be patient.

Jo was pretty bad as well. Id no way sign him for £10m!

My B'inlaw was over for Friday night and he is well unconvinced about fellaini. I asked him to watch Fellaini how he traps and moves a ball to a player in a blue shirt. This he did, but he was poor Saturday. You can't disguise it. Ossy played ok, despite no training. I just think we are carrying too many knocks at the moment and this season's bogey team up next.

TBH I think we stumbled on a position that made him look effective. When he's gone back into a more central role he's been fuckin shite again. I wasn't overly impressed with his contribution from a playing point of view when he was in that second striker role but at least he was looking dangerous from crosses and throw ins, causing a problem to the opposition. Now the only problem he causes are to hos own team. If he's injured then don't fuckin play him, simple. He wouldn't be missed on current form. Castillo is a bag of shite, agreed.

I'm to stick my neck out and say that I think Big Mo will come good. He's going to be collosal over the next 4 (and hopefully more) years.

I remember the season that Vidic and Evra signed for Man Utd and there was a lot of talk about how they just weren't good enough / dodgy signings etc. The next season Vidic was immense (and still is) and Evra has cemented his place as Man Utd's first choice left back. I also remeber Alan Hansen and various other MOTD pundits saying that Drogba was shit after his first season at Chelsea (like they'd never even seen him play for Marseille - fucking ill-informed cock rings).

The thing about Fellaini is that he has been injured for part of the season, played up front for a good part of the season and is adjusting to life in a different league where he can barely speak the language (and don't give me the bollocks about how we all speak one language on the pitch).

In the two games against Liverpool I saw enough quality in Fellaini to make me think we'd secured a real quality signing (admittedly at a high price).

And a final thought, if he doesn't make it here that still doesn't mean he's a shit player. Plenty of brilliant players don't make it in British football. Some brilliant british players don't / didn't make it in other countries. It doesn't make them shit either.
